Guys I Hate: Gym Grunting Guy

Welcome to Guys I Hate, it’s pretty self-explanatory. Got a guy you hate? Drop me a comment – we probably hate a lot of the same guys.


Just to be clear, I am not a gym guy. I run on the treadmill and that’s pretty much the extent of my gym time. Three to five miles with some very obnoxious rock music blasting into my head and I’m out! It works (I think) for me. Question: How can I have Metallica turned up to 10 and still hear some guy doing squats in the corner? Answer: Unless he’s playing fullback for the Giants I shouldn’t. It’s distracting to me, I always turn, hoping he’s going to be one of those guys you see on YouTube that breaks his back and drops like a bag of potatoes. Hey, a train wreck comes in many shapes and sizes and I’m human, I admittedly can’t look away.

P.S. Okay, it’s not always Metallica, sometimes it’s Poison…please don’t judge.

    It’s the guy on the bench with his back arched into half of the McDonald’s logo who moans and howls like a wolf passing a kidney stone that pisses me off.

    There was one at my gym back in the day. I got tired of the shit. I started a rumor among all the regulars that the sounds a dude makes on the bench are the sounds he makes in bed. Wolfie got laughed out of the place in less than a week…and the place was strangely quiet for a month after that, too. (evil laugh)
