Now that the holidays are over and people have resolved to lose weight in 2014, gyms across the country are packed with the New Year's resolution crowd.
Problem is, the regulars don't always love sharing – especially when newcomers don't know gym etiquette.
So what do you do when you can't find a free treadmill and the free weights you need are mysteriously absent?
Vent about the newbies on Twitter, of course. Here are some snarky tweets from frustrated gym regulars.
Off to the gym, where I'll see a bunch of people I've never seen before (& will likely never see again after February 1). #HappyNewYear— Jedediah Bila (@JedediahBila) January 1, 2014
You can tell the New Year's crowd is funneling into the gym when one woman brings in an Oh Henry bar to snack on while "working out".— Marc Taylor (@TheLollipopking) January 1, 2014
Really disappointed in the fact that I'm on the treadmill at the gym and the lady that's next to me is drinking a sprite ?????????— g a b (@gabrielleserg_) January 1, 2014
Dear everyone at the gym today who won't still be here in a month: I hate you. Wipe your machines down and go home!— Sara Goodman (@saraegoodman) January 1, 2014
Your New Years resolution should be to stop wearing cologne to the gym.— Betsy Patricia (@PinkPlemonade) December 31, 2013
GONNA GO TO THE GYM AND GRUNT REAL LOUD WHEN I DEADLIFT SO THE RESOLUTION KIDS DONT COME BACK TOMORROW— Kevin Douglass (@KdgEatsRocks) January 1, 2014
But others are supportive and happy to share their space -- as long as the newcomers are courteous to people around them.
These are the rules new gym goers: Don't hog the machine, wipe down your equipment, no curls on the squat rack & make it fun.— Derek G. (@Derekrva) January 1, 2014
