Posted: 4th November 2013 by SGT Peterson in News, Shenanigans, Tim's Blog

At SGT Peterson’s we believe in doing things differently. With that said, most gyms only give members incentives to get buddies to sign up.

Top 10 Funny Things In The Average Gym

There is always someone that has to walk around naked for far to long in the locker room.

2. The personal trainers are looking at themselves in the mirror, instead of looking at their clients!

3. The person at the front desk usually could be beat in an IQ test out by one of those kids on that 5th grade TV show.

4. The locker room is in the back, so you have to walk down the elise on the way there.

5. There is that one guy that comes in and grunts and yells before lifting a large amount on bench-press, and then he leaves!

6. There is one young lady that does obsessive amounts of cardio; we are talking like hours a day!

7. There is an old body builder that all of the guys want to look like when they are old, but they don’t look half that good and they are in there 20’s.

8. There is that guy(s) that is at the gym for like ¾ hours and you don’t even see them workout, but somehow they are huge???

9. There are women doing excessive legs exercises to “tone up”, only to build up those muscle and make their legs thicker!

Monday is International Bench Press Day!

At SGT Peterson’s I can promise you will never see any of these.


Because we believe in inspiring camaraderie between our staff and clients we would like to invite you all to this invitation only event.
