We have a few of our own pet peeves/bugbears but the majority are listener submitted. Some seem very simple on the surface however after discussion the ranking we give them may surprise you. We split all the pet peeves into 3 different tiers. Tier 1 being the really bad ones and tier 3 not really bothering us. In the actual episode, we use a more "creative" ranking system but we'll let you hear that for yourselves. Down below are all the pet peeves we discuss and the ranking we gave them.
Wearing high waisted bottoms (Andy was going hard at it and then Tom said he does it. Brilliant.)
Clips on the smith machine
Cleaning kit (Present-day COVID)
Not putting kit/weights away
Tom Reardon (Yes our Tom Reardon. Cheers Mikey for the submission)
Wrong use of lifting belts
Senior/older persons "Back in my day I would have done XYX. Back in my day, I looked like that etc etc.)
Cleaning kit (pre-COVID)
Vest tops with nipples out
Poorly trained PTs/ Rubbish PTs in general
All the gear no idea
Hats in gym
Holding onto treadmill sides while running
Red belts grey sweaters. (British Army PTI dress code which is what Bill & Andy are. Bill wanted it in a separate God tier)
Gloves on CV equipment
Gloves while lifting
Women in "provocative clothing"
Squatting in "wrong" footwear
Wearing makeup to the gym
Driving to the gym to walk on a treadmill
So some of these may have you screaming at the screen saying NO WAY! Well have a listen and we do make a good discussion to get to tier placement. We really enjoyed this one and if you did too then please get in touch and we will look at doing a part 2. If you do have some more pet peeves/bugbears that you'd like us to get stuck into then drop us an email or message us on Instagram and we will add them to the list.
