    They're still coming to mine and they seem to think that all the weight machine stations are for sitting on while they talk on their cell phones. They also think they can sit at any station for as long as they want. I don't know what they're doing, just thinking about what to do next. The other thing the newbies do is just wander around slowly and aimlessly. Just another opportunity to get in my way. I try to drop subtle hints, but so few of them speak English as a first language. I don't have a problem with that, and that's not the newbies in particular. It's just the neighborhood where my gym is located. It's Mexican, Puerta Rican, Polish, Russian and Serbian. Lots of good restaurants around there.

    My gym in DC was in Seven Corners, a heavily Asian area. You could smell the food in the gym. Most torturous thing ever.

    Quit going to the gym a couple of years ago. Created my own gym in a 500 sq ft room I have and it has Ben awesome! No more dragging clothes to the gym:)

    If they do get on your nerves say, "I'm gonna cut you, man!" Hey, you know martial arts.

    Its starting to die down a bit, now I just find it funny to see all the new people in the gym. Today the place was slammed but I did not wait at all to do my chest workout. That was until I went over to use the pulleys for flys. Where I found about 20 people doing abs.
