Having a gym buddy can be great, but it can also have its downfalls.

 

I've had so many friends come and go. They start off full of enthusiasm.. interest drops off as the training get more difficult, and before you know it their out the door. And fair enough, if you want to train proper and by that I mean squat and deadlift as your foundation lifts, then it takes a certain mental attitude.

 

To be honest I prefer to go on my own. Get to go to gym, in and out, no BS piss farting around and chatting.

I know what you mean. I have gone through 15 workout partners over the last 3 years. Some have genuine reasons most are just pathetic.

 

people like us are an endangered species

Which one did you join?

I'm still at Fitness First Marion. Live like 2 mins from Paragon Happy Valley now but not sure if I'll join there or not. Some positives and negatives about it compared to FF.

The Paragon Squat rack is awesome. Pushed right up against the floor to ceiling windows on the first level. Its like squatting on the edge, great view! :) Paragon isnt a bad gym.

 

FF Marion misses out on a fair bit of gear, plus there is only one squat rack and its full of douches doing bicep curls because they are too afraid to pick up weights.

Agreed. Man up, stop being a girl. If you need someone to motivate you then the battle is already lost.

Exactly.

 

It's awesome when you have a partner that has a similar vision as you, but that rarely is the case.

 

I like to go about my business alone and do my own thing with my favourite tunes on my ipod. I hate being interrupted by people I know in the gym.

Yeah that is one thing that's crap about FF, wish they had more racks.

If I see people at the gym I know, I tend to snob them lol. I rather not get distracted and have a chat after working out.

See I don't chat with any of the workout partners I had, did that afterwards.. Maybe that's why they stopped :lol:

 

Literally had 1 a month for the 6 months I've been training.. Then again I guess that why my weights have kept going up where theirs have stopped.

Yeah personally im not a fan of a training partner, as people have said, you end up talking too much, and concentration is well lost, that and my workouts dont really require a spotter, a partner for me would only be there to help push me further, but atm my my dedication is there to do this!!

Yeah Anytime Fitness Woodcroft is good. I know one of the personal trainer's down there.

I'd go to Paragon but I'm liking the sauna too much at FF at the moment haha.
