So, I am regular gym user. I do dead-lifts every week and I make some noise - they are a heavy exercise with lots of weight. However in this clip on Youtube some dumb-ass who doesn't agree with someone else being in the gym literally kicks the bar out of a teenagers hands in the middle of a dead-lift.

 

 

Apparently this is now in the hands of the Police:

 

 

How many people here take exception to noises at the gym? My thoughts - it's not a meditation studio, people can be working hard and noises like grunting, weights getting dropped, etc. are part of life.

 

There are many places that offer "machine only" type gyms and no free weights; if you don't like noise go there.

I always wear headphones at the gym. So don't care about noise.

A bit of grunting is expected, but not continuous earsplitting stuff. Nothing like a womens' tennis match between two banshees shrieking on every shot.

Every Gym has a culture, Some are No Dropping weights or noises, Some that allow it. If I go to a unfamiliar gym I try to work out the etiquette its not hard and adjust.

Watching that, I thought the mats were doing a great job of keeping the noise down. Not sure what Mr Skinny Legs had to complain about. Good to see the youngsters made a complaint to police and they're following it up.

Yup agree, but don't agree with kicking the barbell out of someones hands midway through a deadlift. That's beyond culture, even beyond being a d**k, it's just dangerous.

 

 

And he wasn't even making that much noise (especially compared to the one from @GeekGuy, which made me LOL!)

Hope that twerp who kicked the barbell gets banned from the gym. That action could have caused serious damage to the young guy’s back.

If older bloke had an issue, there is a much more mature way to handle it.

What a douchebag. Deserves to be banned from the gym, and prosecuted.
