Coming soon "Wuss World"
NEW ZEALANDFri, Sep 23Share Source:One NewsA young bodybuilder says she would leave any gym that disallows mirror posing in response to CityFitness' new ban. Phoebe McCreath says posing in front of a mirror after a workout is a crucial routine for bodybuilders in the lead up to competitions."I'm currently preparing for a show and I practise my posing in front of the full length mirror at the gym every morning."If I practise (posing) after a workout, my muscles are full and pumped up and I can get a realistic look of what I will look like on stage," Ms McCreath told ONE News.The national gym chain has flexed a nerve with bodybuilders since banning mirror posing at their facilities late last week.AdvertisementThe ban came after one member practised their bodybuilding routine in underwear.CityFitness Operations Manager Lisa Brown told ONE News the incident caused an "uncomfortable environment" for other gymgoers, necessitating a posing prohibition.Brown says their facilities are "not an appropriate place for members to practise the routines of any individual sport"."If the intent in coming into our facilities is to purely use them to practise a bodybuilding routine, we ask that you find alternative locations," she says.Bodybuilder and CityFitness member Sarah Ward told Fairfax at least 20 outraged bodybuilders intend to cancel their CityFitness memberships.Ms Ward says not being allowed to pose at the gym would put a stop to her being able to practise her sport entirely.A GymNation online forum member says there is "no actual sense behind the ban"."All they needed to do is talk to the offender and ban him if warranted. I myself [sic] wouldn't give a crap if I saw someone in a group fitness room just in their undies," the member posted today.The gym chain has previously considered a national ban on selfies and grunting.- By ONE News Now reporter Madison Reidy
Coming soon "Wuss World"
Planet Fitness started this whole wussy thing, now the rest of the world is joining in. I advertise my gym as "no fluff" and "civilized hard core" and there are times I think thats a mistake as least as far as income goes. Joe Gold would roll over in his grave if he knew how lame stream fitness has taken over and bastardized an other wise honorable industry resulting the crap product we have now.
I had incident a while back where one of my BB's dropped his shorts (had posing trunks on) and hit a few thigh shots. Guess who complained? Yep, a 350 lb woman who found it offensive. Offensive? Honey you wear knee length shorts when you ahem "exercise" where the cellulite on yr thighs shows, resulting in a sickening pain in everyones stomach, then you bitch when a high achiever hits a thigh shot? Now whos offensive??
All this Politically Correct / Over Sensitive About Offending Other Peoples Feelings is No Ones Fault But OUR OWN!
We have let the Meek Run Amock , by standing idly by while they bitch and moan about anything and everything, we held our tongues so long that were nearing the point of no return, and the only way to remedy this situation is for normal folks like you and I to say whats actually on your mind! The Very First Thought that comes to you NEEDS to be spoken aloud and Unfiltered, as its this first thought that is the truest you, whether its crass , rude, NON PC, who gives a shit!
If someone says something absurd, you tell them they sound like a fucking moron, before your brain gets a chance to start considering, "is this person gonna be offended" or "am i gonna be labeled"
Im so sick of shit like this! And I wish people would stop being such bitches! And im not talking about the people like this "fat chick in the gym" I am talking about people who dont speak up in fear of being labeled something, be it biggot, sexists, racist, homophobe, PhattyaPhobe, if you dont speak your mind right there on the spot, your a bitch and your contributing to this "woe is me society" we now live in!
So grow some fucking balls people!
Sorry to hijack the thread but it pisses me off and no one says or does anything...
Like at my gym last week a girl walked wearing volleyball shorts the really short spandex type and had a tshirt on that said u of m volleyball sec women's champions so she was obviously a college volleyball player, she was very in shape and looked to be 21 maybe and gorgeous...well she walked through all the way to the back to start here ab core workout...in doing this she had to walk past 50 overweight middle aged women and of course us guys so full of test we are almost humping mid air....and everyone of those women looked at her like she was a piece of trash....jealousy is what it boils down too...she wasn't flaunting she was a real college athlete wearing shorts obviously good enough for the NCAA

The other day it was hotter than shit and I walked in a Sams Club wearing my wife beater (or stringer for you PC folks) and the lady checking the cards who was Asian, said something like "you need a T shirt". I finally got what she was saying, I guess my stringer was showing too much skin, she has me walk over to the service counter and the supervisor looked at me and smiled and said "its a shirt" and I was good to go. But what a crock of shit, over a tank top!
