Some people just use the gym to look at their phones.

Yesterday I was at the gym before work like I do every day. I have a regular routine I do and when I got to my last machine, there was an elderly man sitting on it looking at his phone. I waited and he still sat there on his phone. So I left without finishing my normal routine.
Today I go to the gym and when it comes time to do that one machine, here’s the same elderly man on the same machine, just sitting there playing on his phone.
This time I walked up to him and politely asked “ sir, are you going to be using this machine much longer?”
He did apologize and jumped up saying “ oh, I am just using it to be on my phone!”

I don't know about you, but when I'm working out, I try to maximize the amount of work out performed so I'm not there all day! I don't understand people looking a social media when they are working out! If you are engaged in something, do that, and that only. So rude to make others wait.
@JimboSaturn exactly! This gym is small and only one of a lot of machines like the one I needed

@Mardrae So it's not like the guy is lost in a big LA Fitness, he should be aware of others around him.

Yup, I have seen many people spend more time texting or looking for their next song then they do working out. Leave the phone in your pocket or car for an hour!!!
