Do you say stuff to sweaty ass people?

Im far from a germ freak but today just about pushed me past my limit. Some old guy was on the elliptical for about hour. We got to the gym and he had been on for a good 45 minutes according to the machine. Anyways, the guy is sweating all over the place. It was freaking disgusting. The machine was we, there was a puddle of sweat on each side of the pedals...just sweat everywhere. The man did the right thing and wiped down the machine with his towel but that machine is still very far from clean. He should have grabbed one of the wetnap wipes and wiped everything down really well after the towel.

So do you say anything to him? Do you tell the gym staff? He wiped the machine down but the puddles were still on the floor. I hope to God that the gym somehow cleans their rubber floors.

I always wipe my head and stuff and always TRY to remember to wipe the machines down.
But honestly sometimes I forget because I am so focused.
I sweat like a freaken pig though!
Then again, I don't sit around resting like the other goons in there.

BTW: To anyone afraid of sweat: Quit being a puss and just take a shower afterwards if it really gets to you!
You are in the gym to sweat, lazyass.

Just think, the next time you get on any machine or piece of equipment someone could have sweat all over it even worse than that and not wiped it down at all, but you'll never know because you didn't see it. It's the gym, people sweat, people stink, people do and don't wipe stuff down. If it bothers you that much, wipe everything down before you use it. Otherwise, quit crying like a little bitch and move some weights!

I've seen dudes go straight from the shitter to hitting the weights without washing their hands. Sweat on the floor is the last thing I'd be concerned about.

I was at the gym a couple of months ago and got stink-palmed from one of the barbells. I don't know what was on there but the odor was vomit inducing. I was pretty much done so I went straight home and took a shower.

Try that attitude with me pumped up in the gym and see where it gets you...
A better approach would be to just ask nicely.

It's just sweat.

Now smelly ass Indian people running at the gym is what pisses me off.. I had to stop running one day, because I could hardly breath over the stench.

Everyone has so much courage on the internet...I know for a fact that you wouldn't have done a damn thing if i confronted you previous to this thread.

And Who said I wasn't nice about it?

You've got some serious issues if you're going to knock someone's teeth out for pointing out that you're an inconsiderate cock sucker.

I'm one of those sweaty people. I wipe everything down with the wetwipes and I have a towel in case I stay on a machine long enough that puddles happen.

I'm not particularly sensitive like some people it seems when they see a drop of sweat on a bench or something like that and go apeshit about wiping it down, but yeah, that would get on my nerves, and to be honest I would be quite embarrased if someone came over and said "you left a puddle at the machine..."

I was in the gym just last week doing my routine. Walked up to a machine that no one was on. Unloaded a few plates off it and get to working. Dude comes up to me and tells me he was using it. this is what I said.

Im sorry unless you were a ghost, no one was on the machine and im here to work out. Damn your luck bro, but i'll be done in a about 2 more sets. I don't have time to wait around like you do."

LOL Dude was pretty good size larger then myself and just grabbed his bag and went to another station.

Exactly, it's all about approach.
If you would have came across rude to me or acted like a tough guy(in person),
I wouldn't have done a damn thing...except tell you to lick the sweat off my balls.

I do stuff similar to that, just because I have a routine and a time limit to work with.
I just interrupt them if they are lollygagging around and ask if they will share the machine.
I always get the craziest looks, but haven't heard someone say no yet.
Like I said, it's all about approach.

Man... I know sweating is involved in working out but it was gross. I sweat, I wipe down the machines...When I leave over half my shirt is soaking wet but I dont sweat puddles on the floor. All Im saying is it's disgusting. Id wipe up the floor if it was my sweat. The gym I go to is pretty good about people wiping stuff down, and I have never really had a problem until now.

I don't care how much people sweat at the gym. That's what they're there for.

I am a germ freak, so I wipe down the machine myself before I get on it, that way I know it's been cleaned.

The rec is super anal about people putting towels between them and the equipment. They say it's for health reasons but I was buddies with the old manager and he said that rule prevents the padding on the machines from wearing out.

That's something a d-bag would say. But I'm guessing you're just angry cause you're a sweaty scrub
