[QUOTE]Go to Boston Sports Club/Wellington on a weekend it is a S-show People ignoring cell phone usage policy, and staff not enforcing it. That one kills me. Not racking weights Using bench next to you as a place for your "stuff". That is what lockers are for people! Not to mention the time someone started eating a sandwich on the gym floor. Priceless. All this and more ore 60 bucks a month.

Ugh! The people there can be incredible. Last week a girl was walking in circles around the steppers and gliders talking on her phone so loudly I could hear her over the buzz of the equipment, the piped in music and my ipod!
There is also a woman who dresses like she's 12 and never stops talking on her blackberry, even when she's using the ab crunch machine, she also doesn't let anyone take reps while she's "working out".
The muscleheads upstairs are typically harmless but the dropping of the weights can be too much.
And there has been more than one person who could have used a shower BEFORE they showed up.
Another thing that bugs me, they don't always keep up with cleaning. The second floor bathrooms can be downright nasty, the trash barrells have obvious signs of spit on them, towels often overflow and the equipment can be very dusty. They have cleaning people there but I don't think they give them enough hours.
With all that, my ultimate pet peeve are the trainers who stand around doing nothing. I see people with terrible form who look/act like they're going to hurt themselves and these people completely ignore it. You don't have to give people private training sessions but you could take 5 - 10 mins to keep someone from seriously hurting him/herself.
