So I asked him, can you guys use the standalone barbell since you're doing rows and I wanna squat.

Fvckface fake-smiles at me and says, oh cannot, no space.

Talk about lack of initiative and being brain dead.

I said ok I go do other stuff.

Went to the stretching area, did SMR. Sometime later, fvckface walked past me into the toilet, then walked out. I noticed he went to the machines, and saw his client there.

So I walked over to the squat rack and now saw another person on it. Heng that person was already on last rep.

So the fvckface who told me he had to use the squat rack for rows, walked right past me as I was doing my SMR, and didn't even have the courtesy to let me know he's done with the rack.

And he's a trainer. FFS.

wow...that's really was sh*t!!
this is the first time i have heard...cannot share a equipment and didnt even bother to inform when he's done....
may i know which branch??

Yeah AMK FF. The most disappointing thing was that he could've easily found the space to do the rows with a standalone barbell, instead he chose to monopolise the rack. It's as bad as the morons who use the squat rack for barbell curls. Fvcktard.

I'll wait for the day when he asks me for use of the rack :s8:

ya...same for me..
ORQ trainers are friendly as well and they are willing to share....even if doing curls at the rack.:s8:

to coutuser....selfish people ..yes...stupid exercises at the rack...no...
everyone is entitled to do any exercises at the rack as everyone is paying to use the facilities....it's the selfish people who refuse to share....

some trainers are like that, they think they're have more right than the normal user.

had a trainer at tf rush me through my squats, he 'helped' spot me and a minute later 'helped' me through my last set. all so that his client who just came could use the squat rack.

what's your budget?
FF is normally more than 120...unless you are on corp plan or maybe student plan or some plans.
TF & CF will be cheaper and neg.

yes...i agreed that bicep curl shouldnt be done in a squat rack...but squat rack and bench press are the only ones that have that longer heavier bar.
other misc bars at the sides are lighter and shorter.....so for whatever reason why people prefer to use one or the other, they are entitled since it is a gym.
i guess you are just plain unlucky not able to get them to share.
i have seen my share of people not wanting to share...i have met 2 guys doing squats like forever in the rack, by the time i completed my hour of training...they had also just completed using the rack...so you see...there are selfish people whether they are doing curls or squats.

I think FF is more expensive than TF now, but FF is better. I've blacklisted TF after their horrendous sales tactics, and terrible communications. I was with True Fitness before they bought over Planet Fitness, they first tried to sell me the package at $300++ per month, and then made "discounts". Anyway, I stupidly joined them because they offered True Yoga classes which I thought might be interesting. Some months later, they closed down their only Gym at raffles place (before they bought over PlanetFitness) and the comms was horrible. (Just look at TrueSpa). I've since re-joined FitnessFirst when they had a promotion for old members to join.

They also have a referral program, so if you are interested to join do let me know. For disclosure of interest... I do get some benefits for referrals, but I might be able to get you a better monthly fee through the referral :) PM me if interested.
