That man is clearly not shaped right. He is either Bluto or a shaved gorilla.

The "no chubbies" guy needs to get in there and kick all of their asses. Also, I love how this place has free pizza and free bagel days.

Hee hee, "disgruntled".

To be fair, it is kind of fucking annoying when you're in a gym and all you hear are the roid cases trying to do their reps of 1,000 pounds or whatever and just making constant noise like they're giving birth to meat logs or something.
The correct form for most Olympic lifts is to drop the weight, or you'll tear all the muscles in your back.
I've seriously disrupted the Power Yogacise class again, haven't I. No gold star for me this month.
There's a difference between exercise and the fucktards who mob the weight equipment so they can hang out and look cool and wait, one by one, while they take 20 minutes to prepare for a single rep of some ungodly amount of weight and make sure everyone knows about it, and gets 3 or 4 staff members to "spot" them (despite the fact they have their guido entourage with them). Anyone who regularly goes to a gym with good weight equipment is undoubtedly familiar with these douches.

I don't have a gym membership but I would be intrested in a gym that required grunting. If your grunting was not loud enough for people to hear you would be kicked out.
Is this the kind of thing you think about during your routine imaginations of the Castro district?
Gyms in the Castro are about 50/50 gay men and straight women. There is no grunting, only encouragement and appreciation in the form of "Wooo! You go girl," and "uhhhuuuhhh."

These guys are a nightmare for gym owners not just because they "intimidate" other customers but because they actually turn up and use the equipment all the time. The people that pay their membership just to use the pec deck for ten minutes once a week (about half the members) are what keeps them running. These places have thousands of members, if more than 50 or so were serious bodybuilders or strength athletes spending hours a day in the gym it just wouldn't work.
I feel sorry for the guy who got kicked out. OK, he's a meathead, but his job pretty much requires him to be one. He needs a basement with thick walls and a few squat racks, not a mutually supportive non judgmental pro-fitness personal wellness centre or whatever this place is supposed to be.
Roid-monkeys are also beneficial, though. The way I look at it, about 70% of the people at my gym are young women who mostly show up in the hopes of meeting men (I can't think of any other reason why you'd put on makeup and perfume on your way to the gym at 7am).
The roid-monkeys are not only unappealing to the women, but they scare off the kind of guys the women are after. In theory this is beneficial to the gym because a girl with a boyfriend is more likely to skip workouts and spend time with her guy - if she's truly happy, she might stop working out entirely, and there goes a membership (not to mention the sessions she booked with that hunky personal trainer).
(Note: I don't actually believe any of this. 70% of the people at my gym are happily married and at least 60 years old.)
Five-starring your comment.
I once got threatened with removal from a gym because I was deadlifting and wouldn't gently and quietly place the hundreds of pounds of weight on the bar back on the floor, opting for a controlled drop instead.
This place deserves a crowd of 400-pound powerlifters showing up, roaring like a gorilla turf war, eating all the pizza and then leaving 14 plates on the squat rack bar and a chalk explosion when they leave.

-1 for not actually sounding the lunk alarm.

Remember in "Wayne's World" where the musicians store had a "NO Stairway to Heaven" notice? That's actually not uncommon.

"No grunting or sc--"?
Screaming? Screeching? Scrote-groping?

I remember when one summer I was 17, I had the honor and privilege of working out with my great-grandfather, who was 86 at the time. He was a curious old man, and never afraid of anybody, and once he asked this large gorilla-looking weightlifter "Hey, does all that grunting really help you out?" The weightlifter replied "I don't know, but it keeps me from pissing myself."
So, I say "Grunt on."
Yes, please. Grunt on. I prefer not to walk around puddles.
