View Full Version : I've posted many times about my woes with motivation. . .

November 13th 04, 02:16 PM
Just wanted to let you all know that I figured out what at least part of the
problem was. It was the gym. I didn't even realize that I didn't like the old
gym.

Recently my membership expired. Around the same time, a fabulous "6 months for
$99" deal popped up at a gym much further from my house, but still on my way to
and from work. Everyone said I was foolish to join the gym further away, but I
couldn't turn it down - so I didn't renew at the old gym and took the new
membership.

I have now gone to the new gym more times in 2 weeks than I went to the old gym
in a whole year.

It's 4 times the size. There are 4 squat racks AND a cage. Eight machines for
calves alone! Run by a female IFBB professional. The MUSIC is BLASTING like
at a nightclub which I find helpful, yet I can still block it out on the cardio
machines with my noise-cancelling headphones.

Part of why I like this gym is that there are almost NO women in there.
Yesterday at 7 PM I counted up the members - 25 "HOW YOU DOIN'" type guys, and
me, the lone female. I realized that I don't like seeing other women working
out as they are invariably skinnier, younger, and fitter than me. This
discourages me instead of encouraging me for some reason (yes, Krista, I did
take your quiz and answered "I hate her" to most of the questions!).

I have also noticed that if you are the only woman working out in a gym, no
matter how fat you are, men will still come on to you, stare at you, and help
you take heavy weights off the bar. Even if they are 10 years younger than
you. That's another motivational factor.

So there you have it. I do not anticipate slacking off this time around.
Plus, there is the 20th high school reunion to think about this June.

It looks like you found a genuine iron gym, Debra. The price looks
really good for the NYC area, and with your MFW mindset, you'll
probably gain some respect for being a "real" female weight trainer.
Is it a 24/7 gym?

I found something similar a couple of years ago, and the longer drive
is the only real disadvantage. I keep telling myself I should just
drop the payments on my local YMCA gym and quit outright, but I guess
I just like the security of a membership I've had for 15+ years.

Uh, gee, I guess that means we'll never work out together.

I do not have this experience. Sometimes it's been as many as 50:1 males:me
(I pass time by counting between sets). Where are my heavy weight toting
minions, dammit? Are the men in the gym all unionized in Canada?

I don't have this experience either. I get an occasional nod of the
head, but that's all, and I don't invite any further interaction
anyway (I'm there to train, not socialize).

Maybe the former is an anomaly.

Maybe it's because I only got the stares, and never got any help with
the weights (although I did get occasional spot offers when I was IN THE
DAMN CAGE), but I found the guys in the gym more annoying than
motivating. Well, they did motivate me to shove my computer desk into
the corner and put a power cage in my computer room.

Another bennie of having a home gym: no one else there unless
explicitly invited. (Hmmm...... perhaps I should expand upon the 12x20
sq ft consideration; back to the drawing board). And a great view.

Thanks for the encouragement, John. Unfortunately it's not a 24/7 gym. This
isn't a factor on weekdays when it's open from 5 AM - 11 PM, but on Saturdays
it's only open from 7-7 and on Sundays (the horror) from 8-5!

>Uh, gee, I guess that means we'll never work out together.

Krista, if I was once again as fit as you, I wouldn't feel that way anymore.
I'm an insecure person so when I'm not in shape, I really fixate on other women
and how much better than me they are.

As for the issue with men helping me out, maybe it's the big boobies and the
long blond hair? Or maybe, for you, you exude a "don't **** with me" face.
Back in the old days, when I was more in shape, I actually put on a "don't ****
with me" face when in the gym, because of the relentless come-ons. Having
gotten used to being pretty much invisible out in the world over the past 3
years, I guess I haven't been putting it on in the gym because I felt it wasn't
necessary. Instead I've been wandering around with a deer in the headlights
look trying to figure out what to use among all that equipment, and in some
cases trying to figure out what the equipment is even used for! Maybe the men
latch on to that.

Hmmm. It could also be my pungent stench, home made prison tattoos, missing
teeth, or knife fight facial scars. Men are so shallow.

That's classic, offering to spot you in the cage! No one has offered to spot
me yet, and I'm glad. The only thing I need spots on are squats and the only
guy I allow to get that close to me is my boyfriend.

I find these guys amusing because they are mostly walking stereotypes. The
following types can be seen (Keep in mind, this is Staten Island):

Younger guys, baseball caps on sideways with the brims flattened and white
wifebeater tank tops, who know ALL the lyrics to the rap songs that play in the
gym: These guys all think they are Kevin Federline or even black rap stars,
despite the fact that their skin is lily white and if they ever saw a black guy
in their Italian neighborhood they would attack him with baseball bats.

Wide guys: Italian or hispanic guys who are at most 5'8" and try to expand
sideways as much as possible to compensate. Many of these guys have large guts
as well for some reason.

HOW YOU DOIN' crowd: guys in their mid 30s to around 50 who can actually be
heard uttering that exact phrase to each other multiple times each session -
they can be tall, short, fit or wannabes - but the common factor is that every
other part of their conversation looks like they are secretly discussing where
to bury the next body

Cops and Firemen - they are sometimes wearing NYPD and FDNY logo clothing or
baseball hats, but if not, you can JUST TELL that's what they are. Don't ask
me how - it's a 6th sense you grow from living your whole life in NYC.

The common thread between all these types is tattoos. Lots of tattoos!

Is it that you are any less of a person compared to them? Or is this
about your own expectations about yourself? There really is a
difference in that respect.

Well, yeah!

Yes, I works well for me too.

Combined with the above description, you are a dude magnet.
Regardless, you might consider finding one person, male or female, as
a training partner. At least for the beginning experimentation period.

Another approach is to have a written plan: exercises and machines. If
you are perplexed about the machines, consider asking for an 20-30 min
introduction session from one of the staff. It will at least give you
a better idea of where to start. Or hire a trainer for one session.

BTW, is this one of the NYC Sports Clubs? I've been to 3 of them in
Manhattan, the last one (last Sept) next to St. Luke's Cathedral (next
to Ground Zero). The squat rack overlooked the Cathedral and Ground
Zero; interesting and distracting view for doing squats.

Next time I'm in Manhattan, we should meet for lunch or something.
I'll see if I can pry myself out of the Am Museum of Science/History
:)

Can't your boyfriend be your training partner for a while till you get
up to speed?

I would suggest a training partner for you. If not your bf, then you
might consider another chic with your characteristics. You also might
be surprised that one of those males that you have characterized could
be an excellent training partner. But that will require time and
careful observation and evaluation. All my training partners (the few
that I've had; don't really like having one) have been male, except
for the one female powerlifter/biochem buddy, who was a lesbian. My
good friend was a powerlifter in Maryland and had two male Italian
training partners (Guido and Marco), the best partners she ever had.

When you feel more confident, you can go on your own if you choose. A
good long-term training partner can be great, but they are very rare.

>The common thread between all these types is tattoos. Lots of tattoos!

Nothing wrong with tatts. See lots of them here, even professors. One
training friend in the old gym in Or was a full-body tattoo art board
and a statistician. He was a sweetheart. Each tattoo 'told' a story.

Hmm, well you did say you were the only woman in the gym. I don't
think they're used to seeing any.

Anyway, FWIW, as for the way they treat you, I think you can control
that to a great extent by the way you dress and act. If you play it
right, you could end up as everyone's little sister and they'll be
likely to come over if some new guy starts to **** with you.

Cute, huh? That started when my bench got up to 95 lbs. Apparently the
guys saw those big ol' 25s on the bar and thought "That's heavy for a
gurl, she must need my help".

Hmm. I don't think you have to grow up in NYC to be able to spot cops.
I'm not sure exactly what it is that gives them away; maybe they just
exude copness.

Yeah, there was some freaky tattooed chick at the gym I used to go to. I
think she's stalking me or something, cuz I still see her at the new gym. ;)

Who give a **** about that. I train with a woman who specifically has
stated she wants to be spotted like a guy i.e. grabbed around the
chest. I guess she's more concerned with safety than modesty.

Unfortunately, this is in Staten Island. I work in Jersey now, so I
am never really in Manhattan. But if you do go to the American Museum
of Natural History, have a look at the MUSEUM DIRECTORY posted next to
every single staircase. Look at the photo for LIBRARY, on the 4th
floor. They tell me that my photo, used for the Library when I was
working there back in 1994, is still there. I'm the girl in the
candy-apple green blazer, reading the giant book at the table. I was
a librarian there for 4 years.

Unfortunately he lives and works in Brooklyn and I never see him
during the week which is when we both train. Way back in the day, he
did train me. He's the tall dude seen in my story on Krista's web
page helping me sort of squat those two plates years ago. . .

I think I will get by just fine on my own. I'll ask the gym owner for
a tour of some machines I am not familiar with. Thanks for all the
suggestions however!

Sounds like a stalker, doesn't it?
