Pet peeve

There are a lot of things in this world that annoy me. But when it comes to Pump classes at the gym, there's one thing that pisses me off more than any other - people who can't keep time with the music. I can deal with the guys who lift much heavier weights than they should and who grunt non-stop through the class. I can deal with the people who wear totally inappropriate shorts. And I can deal with the insanely bad remixes. But people who CAN'T COUNT TO FOUR???? They can fuck off and die.

There was a guy at Pump last night who fitted this profile. He was lifting stupidly heavy weights, and I'm not sure if he can't ACTUALLY count to four, or if he's just trying to be hard core (and failing) by lifting really heavy weights, but then rushing all the moves. He'd have his triple row done before the rest of the class had done ONE of the three, and stand there waiting around for the next set to start.

I really wanted the instructor to tell him off (they often will), but it turned out last night's instructor couldn't keep time either! Awesome... :S But the worst part? I was so bloody distracted by this idiot who couldn't count to four that I totally wasn't paying attention to what the instructor was saying and kept losing track of what we were doing. I really hope that dude doesn't come back. Because I might actually scream at him if I have to put up with another hour of that shit...

  1. I'm very unqualified to comment on this (you know my phobia about gym classes), but can you stand at the front so you don't have to look at other people?

  2. Unfortunately not. The many many walls of mirrors make it impossible to avoid seeing what everyone else in the class is doing...


Leave me a comment and I'll love you forever (except for spambots...)
