the only thing i silently judge people on at the gym is poor form. 🤷🏼♀️
...and the girls that are clearly only there to pick up guys. but i don't think that counts.
I am an asshole. In college my work-study job was to monitor the university's weight room. I judged constantly. I even did a speech in class based on my observations. It was a hit, lots of laughs, and I never gave it a second thought. 30 years later and I feel terrible after this post. She is so right and I will not be such an ass in the future. Thank you!
It's a shame people don't have the intestinal fortitude to not be horrifically offended at everythjng. Oh my goodness can you imagine the lifetime of emotional scaring that this adult couple had to endure because someone said they were hot shit for wearing a weight belt! Imagine the expensive therapy they will need to be able to re enter their daily lives after such a horrible "judgement". My god....pathetic
I use a walker at the gym. Get all kinds of looks. Safer for my MS riddled body that won't quit, but won't work. Thank you for saying all of this.
All this shows is no matter what you do, no matter how good you are at something, no matter if you work your butt off, survive death, disfigurement, or don't bother a soul, SOMEONE, SOMEWHERE, IS GOING TO JUDGE. Don't listen. Don't even acknowledge their existence. Just keep trucking. Keep living happy. Be who you are, and know you don't have please everyone.
I spent two years working at a gym. I heard so many stories about why people are there."My friends are doing it?""My husband made me promise to live life to the fullest before he died last year. I'm only 39. That's hard.""My doctor said I needed to lose weight because my health has been so bad.""I want to join the marines.""I want to learn to swim but my arms are just so weak... you know?""I need a spot since I had shoulder surgery and don't want to drop this on my neck and die."Knee surgeries, back surgeries, arm surgeries, old injuries...All I know is that these people are taking an initiative to be healthy, regardless of why they want to be healthy, why they chose that gym, and why they choose to put up with haters. Each is an inspiration.Just for the live of all things holy please PUT YOUR WEIGHTS BACK WHEN YOU ARE DONE!!!!
If you have time to stop and to judge someone, even just mentally, you're workout is weak. You're lacking serious focus on your OWN goals and making sure you're breathing enough to stave off potentially passing out 🙅🏼
Yep, must be completely tramatizing to be labeled hot shit. I don't know how you possibly came back from this type of onslaught. If this is the worst you've had, you're damn lucky.
I were one for my back whenever I leave the house. It helps a lot with my back injury. The chicks think im wearing a waist trainer and they give me dirty looks and giggles thinking I can't hear them... girls will be girls
Understand. I am not buff and working out but I'm trying to walk and cope with my pain. I has 5 vertebrae fused earlier this year and am judged if I use the electric scooter at a store or even a cane. People are way to judgmental. You take care of you.
