I find it funny that chicks get such a bad rap for seeking attention in the gym. True, there are some gyms where this is encouraged and happens. However; in my experience; it’s the men who are FAR more willing to do what it takes to get people to look their way. Drama. Blech.
We have more than a few of those at the gym I’m currently training at. The groaning and screaming is off the charts. I literally walked over to ‘Mr. Dude leg pressing 2 1/2 plates yelling his head off ‘ and asked if he were ok. I startled him. He said, “Ya, I’m in the zone.” I said, “Ya, you’re screaming as if you’re dying..” He laughed…but quieted down…a bit.
I know, it’s confrontational. But the drama is rude, unnecessary, and obnoxious. It’s a ploy that a simple shirt saying ” LOOK AT ME!” would take care of and not bother those of us who are actually trying to train.
Here at Globo Gym we’re better than you, and we know it.
