    Forgetting our hairband, a broken locker, those showers that turn off half way through a hair wash.

    But we also know that there are some things that go above and beyond frustration.

    Some things that are truly terrible. Like some of these.

    The people who decide that using the phone on a cross trainer is an acceptable way to live your life

    Why you have enough breath left in you to gossip to your mate is literally beyond me.

    But also, I don’t want to hear about your day when I’m trying to do a HIIT session.

    Please. STOP.

    The groans

    Was that a noise of sexual pleasure?

    Oh no, wait, you’re just lifting more than you did yesterday and you want the world and it’s mum to know about it.

    The smell of protein powder

    Firstly, nobody cares that you are in the gym, so why are you posting that picture to Instagram?

    Secondly, your entire visit has been wasted because you didn’t want to get sweaty and ruin the picture.

    Thirdly, I’m in the background of it and I don’t want to be on your Facebook, stranger.

    I love that you love your body. You go for it.

    But please. It’s common decency to just wear a towel on the rather long walk from the shower to your locker.

    For the love of all that is good, put your bits away.

    You know when the person before you didn’t have the common decency to wipe down their equipment.

    And you don’t want to use your towel to wipe it down, because ugh.

    So you just stand there cursing everyone around you under your breath.

    Group classes on the floor

    Look, if you’re going to run me ragged and make me feel like I’m about to keel over, can you at least have the common courtesy to do it in a room that is away from everyone else?

    People that ask you how many sets you have left when you are half away through lifting

    Bro, don’t ruin my flow yeah?

    Oh you think me lifting weights is funny do you?

    Tell you what will be funny, when this kettle bell is flying through the air towards your head.

    Girls that reapply their make up for their PT session

    Babes, with the best will in the world he isn’t flirting, he’s just trying to encourage you.

    And also, sweat + foundation = recipe for an unattractive disaster.
