    Gym members acknowledging me now - so before I was a nobody?

    I know having a build is not an indication on how well you know your sh!t or don't, however I can tell you this, when I first started training at this new gym (24 hour fitness) no one knew me and honestly no one even noticed me, no head nod when eye contact was made, no hello, no nothing.

    But now, because I am growing (muscle memory is all) I have the nods, the whats up man even have some folks coming up to me and asking me for advice on certain movements.

    I am OK with all this, but my point is, before when I was skinny my form was still the same, my intensity was still the same, I was in the gym day in and day out consistency yet I didn't get the attention I am getting now, and I get it, who wants to ask/take advice from a skinny old man right? But, we all know having a build doesn't mean you know your sh!t, there are plenty of coaches out there who don't look the part, (some are fat, some are thin etc) but know about training/nutrition.

    Last night my son and I were looking for 30lbs DB to do some alternating curls - this gym is horrible no one puts the weights back - and these two girls came up to me to ask me how to perform one arm dumbbell rows. Now keep in mind these two same girls have been in the gym since I started, they never asked me for advice and their form sucks, so why now?

    On Saturday when I was squatting, I had 3 guys come up to me and asked me if I was a personal trainer and if I could help them with their squats, again I have squatted before on this same platform with these same guys right next to me and never did they asked me for advice.

    Yeah so now I am noticed..


    Of course I will post pics for context on how I am looking in the gym.

    ONE question, is this a fitness center or a gym gym, if you know what i mean?
    On a scale of 1 to 10 how hardcore is this place?

    Mixture, fitness and some strong mofo who bench/squat some serious weight. Not many bodybuilder type guys though. In all my time going there I could count on my hand how many great build guys are there.

    The women on the other hand that's a different story almost all of them look incredible, but I think that has to do a lot with surgery. I never seen so many women with shapes like the ones that go to the gym.

    You should have punched them all in the face. That said, it could be a combination of you looking the part and also people becoming familiar with you. Whenever I hit a new gym, nobody says a word to me the first few months, but after seeing the same faces week after week, eventually people start approaching and asking questions. One of the most common (don't ask me why) was how I could hold a heavy barbell with what appeared to be a double-overhand grip. I then got to explain the miracle of the hook grip.
    It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

    Ohh yeah, my other gym *dolphin fitness" was very hardcore, old equipment, no AC lots of bodybuilders and I was very well known there. Miss that gym man, it closed down due to Covid.

    And at dolphin there had to be like 5 women, if that much that would go there.

    I was going to point out that if they're asking basic advice... they probably don't know enough yet to recognize good form, so seeing a guy who's built is all they can go on to know who to ask.

    I finally built up the courage to Google "what does pink knighted mean" and that was a mistake. I read the first few words of the Google result summary of one result. And I learnt it means 2 very different things and you shouldn't investigate the matter.

    Which one Dustin meant, I'll leave to you to discuss.
    Faith in Jesus first and faith in squats second.
    Then other details will start to slot themselves into place.

    I agree to a point, but like I said there are some out of shape coaches that know their sh!t Hell I trained with some pro bodybuilders (Gary Strydom, Victor Martinez, Rich Gaspari to name a few) and I learn a lot from them, but I also listen to Mark Rippetoe and he is a fat fck

    LMFAO, now I am curious.
    So now I know why you know your chit, you only mentioned Victor in past discussions.
    Gary and Rich know their chit as well, that must have been a blast! Lucky man!

    I trained with Victor BEFORE he became pro, I trained with Gary after he was older and no longer competing, I trained with Rich when he was competing.

    Every one of them I trained at Mid-city gym in mid-town Manhattan. I had a training session with Macho Man Randy Savage but it was in a group of 10 when he showed up at Mid-City gym.

    My gym is currently closed (for the 3rd time) for covid.
    Easter weekend, right before the last closure I was banned for 1 week because of an altercation with an anti-masking punk. He made the mistake of inviting me outside to settle things. I thought that was a good idea and went outside with him. By this time we had attracted a large gym audience. That audience knew me and the weight I lift, and my work ethic, this punk did not.
    I told the front desk lady to call the cops for me and an ambulance for him-in front of him.
    When we were outside he was all crazy yelling and insulting. I quietly told him I if he took a step up to the plate I was going to rip off his head and sh*t down his throat. I said this very calmly, quietly, and waited for him to make his move.
    To my surprise his move was to go to his truck and leave.
    I was disappoint. (sic)

    I am known at my gym as either its strongest azzhole member or the gym's strongest protector, depends who you talk to. Imo, I just don't take any sh*t from anybody. I let Bill Goldberg (the wrestler) know it, I f*cked with Nelly (the rapper) and his 2 bodyguards, and I threatened to break 2 professional football player's (CFL) arms mid-season for taking my squat rack when I went for water. When another gym manager threatened to kick me out I told him I was here long before you and will be here long after you. He was gone within a month of that incident.
    For all my sh*t talking and provocation towards azzholes only at the gym...not once has any of them stepped up to the plate even when I knew they would beat my azz.

    I tried my best John, and failed. Sorry bro.

    On the other hand, 2 twin teenage brothers, who are recent immigrants, joined my gym. They were absolute newbs and I saw a chance to pay it forward. Took them under my wing and booked a full week of training with them for free so they could learn from experience rather than a textbook or some twat online.
    That's how old school rolls imo, we take care of our own and don't take any sh*t.

    Does that mean that there was a positive covid test result for a member or the city has closed gyms because of data and number of cases? Either way I feel for you.

    The province (State for Americans) closed the gyms. My province has the highest per capita numbers in all of Canada and Canada is sucking azz with the vaccine rollout.
    My gym has closed and re-opened 3 times since covid. We are now on closure #3.
    Imo, if my ancestors can escape from Stalin, go through the Great Depression and WW2...then this pandemic sh*t is easy compared to that. Thank-you.

    They will come if you build it.

    Have you competed in bodybuilding lately? I gave it up, hence why I am getting a sleeve tat starting May 29th. Although inside I know I would have done extremely well, but fck it now I will never know.
