|What are the most annoying things about using non boat club gyms?
Anyone who's ever used a gym - even a posh one - in the holidays will have come across some of these...

|It hugely irritates me that gyms put a maximum length of time that you can spend on CV equipment. What is the point of erging / running / cycling for 15mins?!

|I don't find all this annoying, just vaguely amusing...

|So many annoyances not on the list:
-you can't put your own music on and are forced to listen to shit like robbie williams
-the air conditioning is always crap and you can't open the big doors or take your clothes off. but to be fair its still cooler than outside in the summer, hence the "sad-looking" people on the treadmills who just don't want to sweat to death and get covered in evil midges
-its well expensive
-it closes at about 10pm
But there's lots of good things:
-Decent showers, sauna etc.
-Bench press with enough weight that you can use both arms
-girls to look at

|Not just girls to look at, girls in gym gear...
Has anyone who reads this ever pulled in a gym? Perhaps another poll?
