So I'm at the gym today....

Monday, 28 March 2011
I don't take the gym seriously, it isn't my life, far from it in fact. I go for 45 minutes before university to do some training to keep me fit for football and since I started I've seen some startling sights in my time. A guy playing game boy sat on an excersise bike for example, women reading magazines on weight lifting benches, many people talking on the phone but this one takes the biscuit.

I was half way through my routine, streaming with sweat and struggling and noticed someone sat next to me on the bike, I look over and was actually startled, I stopped peddling and stared at this fat clown peddling about 10rpm with a KFC burger and a drink. It completely knocked me off my stride. . . in fact it ruined it, I had to get off five minutes later as my shock turned into disgust. Honestly what's the point in wasting the money. The clown probably tells people he's really trying his hardest and cant understand why he's gaining weight.


Speaking of gyms, I joined the gym a good few years back with a a mate of mine. It was one of those where you pay the entire year up front, anyway, we joined, went along one night after school for our first workout and hit the cardio room, both of us on a treadmill, I was only on the treadmill for 10 mins by which time he's gone through the whole lot of cardio equipment and told me he was off to the weights room....

5 minutes later he returned, bottle of coke from the machine in hand, saying "theres some big bastards in there"...And then told me he'd done enough!

Spoke to him the day after in class and he'd called at the chippy on the way home for tea as well, I never saw him again at the gym!

    how stupid can that one man be? Eating fast food and cycling at the same time. Wtf :P still shocked

  1. great looking blog, Danny!

    I need to get more serious in gym also. I luckily don't get fat, but its also hard for me to build muscle.

    I'll be following ya!

  1. hehe :D what was that guy thinking ? maybe he'll train the calories down while eating it on a bike, so he won't get fat :D

    That's a pretty amazing sight next time bring your own and get a pic for the blog. Could make an excellent motivational.
    Gym.
    You're doing it wrong.

    I've seen some pretty crazy stuff myself, a friend often downloads a movie and then hits the cardio circuit well watching.

    Loving the blog though great work!

  1. Footy said...:

    Fat kid had the right idea, maybe not the greatest execution.

  1. Bassislv said...:

    just found your blog today, nice one! following!

  1. 1StopBlog said...:

    the best thing to do is take your ipod and go into your own world when your at the gym.. forget about everyone else.

  1. I wish i had the energy to go to a gym, just the walking to the gym is to much of a hassel!

  1. Hahahahaha, who the hell does that?

  1. Moob said...:

    i dont like the gym either

  1. frameaj1 said...:

    hahaha, are you even allowed to eat in a gym ... 0.o

  1. CD-Roomba said...:

    was he eating one of those double-downs? the only thing better than a chicken sandwich is a chicken sandwich with no bread

  1. My experiences at the gym typically have me getting dirty looks after everyone notices me looking at the hot fit girl's butt or the giant overly muscular 40 year old guy hitting on me. Either way, the exercise is not the hard part.

  1. Sam said...:

    Wow, that can't be real! lol. Poor guy.

  1. psyke said...:

    I know how you feel. Just came back from gym myself.

  1. Patti D. said...:

    Your friend sounds like a great customer for the gym, he pays for a year and never comes back!

  1. They let you take fast food into the gym?

  1. Janez said...:

    Lol your friend must have alot of money.

  1. Lol, that KFC guy is pretty ridiculous. You'd think that getting your money's worth would at least be an incentive to put the work in.

  1. Kaneda said...:

    That's really a shame.
    I think people just don't realize the importance, they will keep on with eating KFC shit until they get sick.

  1. -DO- said...:

    olol gym is not for everyone

  1. Nick said...:

    Like CD-Roomba I too was wondering if he was eating a double-down. Don't know if they have those in the UK, but it's just two fried chicken breasts with cheese and bacon in between...no bread. If he was eating that then I think I would have saluted him.

  1. Dazza said...:

    speaking of gym i should really not skip it 2moro

  1. POP! said...:

    haha thats the way to work out, kfc in hand

  1. staying fit and healthy makes you happy and your live longer, fat people eating junk is just not right

  1. higherr said...:

    Some people do the stupidest things in gyms, they are always "that guy".

  1. i should go more often to the gym i lack workout

  1. Green Bus said...:

    LOL, I don't understand why you got so upset. I just wouldn't care. I did gym once, and really don't care about what others are doing. They do their business and I do mine.

    Thinking of going back, though. My body would appreciate.

  1. Donatelo said...:

  1. JoeyPo said...:

    wow, than again if you think about it he was kinda leveling everything out..lol

  1. Pebbles said...:

    IT takes a lot of dedication to stay in shape. I use to work out a lot for a few years, but recently lost all motivation.

  1. Erik said...:

    haha, that guy must've thought 'what goes off, must go in!'.
    nice blog mate :)

  1. MikeRo said...:

    Same thing happens in my gym. I just shake my head.

  1. Questions said...:

    This proves that fat people deserve to be fat.

  1. Mu said...:

    wow. he had to be trolling IRL. lol.
