Most everyone who works out wants to look good and Mrs.
Silicone was no different.
Mrs. Silicone decided that for every visit to the gym she
would wear the most revealing outfit possible.
Miss Silicone would always find a mirror in the weight room
to perform her aerobics class-like exercises in front of all the weight lifters.
While everyone looks at themselves in the mirror while
working out Mrs. Silicone wasn't in front of a mirror to look at her self.
Shockingly Poor Gym Etiquette
Demonstrated by Mrs. Silicone
Mrs. Silicone had the poor gym etiquette to complain
literally every day to the fitness manager about the other members who
were staring at her. She could have decided to show less skin and do her
dance steps in the aerobics room rather than the weight room but not, Mrs.
Silicone had to draw attention to herself so she could complain to management
every single day.
4. Mr. Fabio Wedge
Likes when People Stare!
At a tiny gym in the so-called "backpacker's ghetto"
Khaosan Road in Bangkok I met Fabio Wedge.
Mr. Wedge had long flowing locks and gave away his Italian
heritage with the Italy tanktop.
Mr. Wedge also gave away his working out style from the
outset which was the "look at me, look at me" kind of style posing and flexing
in the mirror.
Mr. Wedge was in good shape but by no means a professional
or even amateur bodybuilder but that didn't matter to Mr. Wedge.
Shockingly Poor Gym Etiquette
Demonstrated by Mr. Fabio Wedge
It is besides the point but Mr. Wedge didn't believe in any
form of deodorant or even showers for that matter. The small gym reeked of
Fabio's odors but that was just the beginning.
As Fabio's workout progressed so did his lack skin covering
clothes. It was slightly unusual for a guy to rip his shirt off Hulk Hogan
style in the gym but what came next was shocking.
Mr. Wedge's shirtless flexing in gym shorts wasn't good
enough. Fabio proceeded to take off his gym shorts to reveal what I only
know to be referred to as "Tidy Whitees." After removing the gym shorts
Fabio did what anyone would do, he pulled as much of his underwear he could in
his crack and flexed in the mirror.
The mirror was not enough for Mr. Wedge. Fabio then
began asking other people working out in the gym to check out his "glute
definition." Lifting weights with Metalica blaring in my headphones I was
caught off guard by Mr. Wedge who came up to me and basically stuck his rear end
in my face as I rested in between sets.
3. Mr. Quack Knowitall
Small Town USA
Mr. Knowitall was your typical middle aged gym member of
the local athletic club. At around 6'2" and 240 pounds Mr. Knowitall was
in decent shape with the exception of the ginormous beer gut.
Mr. Knowitall is the same guy that exists in most gyms
(probably exists in your gym) that knows everything and makes it his purpose to
let everyone know about it.
Quack Knowitall would walk around the gym and talk to
people 75% of the time while working out 25% of the time.
Shockingly Poor Gym Etiquette
Demonstrated by Mr. Quack Knowitall
Mr. Knowitall would walk around the gym and interrupt
personal training sessions on a regular basis and was already known by
management as a problematic gym member. Mr. Knowitall was not a health
professional of any kind so when he started walking up to gym members who were
working out and telling them they need chiropractic adjustments something had to
The fitness manager and the club's general manager warned
Mr. Knowitall his antics were against club policy not to mention gym etiquette.
When Mr. Knowitall continued his on the floor chiro quackery he was relieved of
his membership which resulted in a shouting match that every gym member and
employee will remember for a lifetime.
2. Mr. Sprinkler
Thinks his Sweat is a Gift from God
San Francisco, California
Sweating is a part of working out but its always proper gym
etiquette to keep it to yourself.
Mr. Sprinkler decided that his sweat was a treasure for
everyone around him and it should not be moved.
Poor Gym Etiquette Demonstrated by Mr.
I only saw Mr. Sprinkler a couple of times while in the gym
but I saw the evidence of Mr. Sprinkler numerous times. In a crowded 24
hour fitness chain gym the cardio bikes are no further apart than a few feet.
Mr. Sprinkler would exercise on one bike but his sweat
would literally sprinkle onto the bikes on either side as well as accumulate in
puddles besides the bike he was exercising on. Mr. Sprinkler thought it
was best for others to leave his sweat alone making 3 machines unusable by
anyone who wasn't a Mr. Sprinkler fan.
1. Mr. Schick Gillette
Doesn't believe in Gym
Etiquette, Sanitation, or Human Decency
South San Francisco, CA
Mr. Schick Gillette has no background story.
Mr. Schick Gillette has no rivals for his shockingly poor gym etiquette.
Mr. Schick Gillette is the main reason why I personally do not use the hot tubs
at the gym.
Poor Gym Etiquette Demonstrated by Mr. Schick Gillette
It was a late Monday morning at a smallish corporate fitness center which
catered to clientele largely from a nearby biotech company. A usually slow
time for the gym got a little busier when 3 or 4 members came up to the front
desk to make a complaint.
Evidentially there was a man shaving in the hot tub. The employees who
were just wrapping up the morning shift couldn't believe what they were hearing.
Someone was actually shaving in the public hot tub, and while other members were
in it nonetheless?
A small parade of the remaining employees accompanied the general club manager
to the male locker room where the hot tub was to see if someone was really
shaving in the hot tub. When we arrived it was worse than we thought.
As we arrived to the hot tub partition of the male locker room we could see a
sole guy in the hot tub but he didn't appear to be shaving from behind the
steamed glass window. As we walked in and the manager asked the clean
shaven Mr. Gillette if he saw anyone shaving in the hot tub he shook his head
Next the unthinkable happened. Mr. Gillette stood up in the hot tub razor
in hand with a stupid look on his face. As the general manager started to
question him he turned around to get out of the hot tub and there was blood
dripping down his rear end! Mr. Shick Gilette shaved all 4 of his cheeks
in the public hot tub!
The aftermath: The general manager who happened to be a really nice
tolerant guy immediately to my surprise told Mr. Gillette to leave and not to
let the door hit him in the (now smooth) ass on the way out!
