Your gym shouldn't be a morgue or a meat locker

What the hell is going on in these gyms today. The energy sucks, plain and simple. I've seen more action watching a moth eat a drape, or even watching paint dry. And what's even more sickening is how people who are working out, supposedly to achieve results, are so adverse to breaking a sweat, or even being uncomfortably hot, needing or complaining about wantingthe AC on so low it feels like a meat locker, WTF...

It's a sign of the times I'd say. The gym culture is rapidly going to hell in a hand basket. The entitlement mindset of the new age gym member has become dis-eased to the point of absurdity. There are no good role models anymore, sad.Gyms these days are a shit show, but im not surprised, rather highly disappointed. I come from a time where a training session was borderline abuse, about hard labor, and we loved it, wanting more. Back then was also where I was introduced to the breathing bench which became a necessary evil. 

This was where having a bench next to where you were training so you could sit in between sets was a must, otherwise you would find yourself on the floor flopping around like a fish out of water gasping for your last breath.There was no such thing as talking before, during or after sets, because number one, you thought you were dieing, secondly, it meant you weren't training hard enough. 

All there was time for was to recover, shut the fuck up and do another set, and another set, and another fucking set. Damn do I miss those days when we sweat like pigs, barely able to walk out of the gym under our own power. Now, if you sweat in a gym or make some guttural noises, or actually god for bid do a real workout, these fucking snowflakes need a grief councelor. Ahh how I long for the good ole days.

Stay tuned for more truth talking…
