    EAGAN, MN—After tentatively approaching the extensive rack of dumbbells located along the gym’s wall, new LA Fitness member Brian Vinje was seen lingering in the vicinity of the free weights for several seconds Thursday before returning to the elliptical machine on which he had previously been exercising, onlookers reported. According to accounts, Vinje took roughly eight seconds to peruse the wide selection of weights, lightly touching the grip of a 20-pound dumbbell for a moment, before retreating a short distance and briefly pretending to become occupied by a poster of human musculature on the wall. While reportedly pausing to cast a furtive glance around the room, Vinje is said to have made fleeting eye contact with another gym-goer seated on a nearby bench, causing him, by all accounts, to abruptly jerk his gaze back to the rack and to scan it as if searching for a specific desired weight. At press time, Vinje was seen with his eyes focused downward as he once again engaged the default settings on the elliptical trainer.

    Some times the weight area can be quiet freighting and embarrassing if you dont know what your doing and new to it. And especially when there're 300lbs bodybuilder looking dudes yelling while they lift what looks like a million pound weights staring at you lol.:franko1:

    This is me, but looking through a window because I'm standing outside of the gym with gasoline and a match. :franko1:

    I would say something mean about the OP but out of deference regarding little McStinky, I will keep quiet.


    How welcoming that must have felt for the new member. Why do these guys at the gym have to be like that-all unfriendly and clannish-that is what women would do.

    He shouldn't be in the gym without a plan anyway haha.

    I absolutely can't stand the folks that be in the gym playing games. They start using sh*t that you need and be playing with it! And then you got them folks that stand around chatting, just all in the way.

    The gym is my second home so this really resonates with me lol. You don't have to lift the most and you don't have to run the fastest. Gym rats know that everybody has to start somewhere but if you're not in there to work out, then please get the hell out of the way.

    I can't believe I fell for it. I was thinking, 'why does he have that laughing emoticon there? This is not really that funny..I feel bad for the guy and they are doing him wrong with this story'. And it was The Onion. LOL! He got me again.

    The Onion was my only source of entertainment until The Wendy Williams Experience would come on in the late afternoon, back when I used to work security. LOL
