She's got a point: "Grunters should go elsewhere." Personally, I don't grunt. I scream at the top of my lungs on my max, max lifts. I call it the Airhorn effect.

Grunters & screamers should locate their nearest CF affiliate!

I once had a grunter at my gym when he was basically yelling EVERY single rep of EVERY single exercise he did...and we are not talking about Deadlifts...we are talking about pec decs, preacher curls, calf raises, and the like for sets of 10 to get a burn.....it got on my every last nerve....those kind of people can get thrown out all day long.

I was once asked to "keep it down, this is not that kind of gym" while a guest at a corporate facility in LA. I was ~ 3/4 of the way thru the pullups in Angie, and as a guest I reluctantly complied.

Strange thing though, at the time I was admonished ~750 ft^2 of the gym floor was occupid by 8-10 slow moving ladies being led thru step aerobics by a gel-haired frat boy with an MC Hammer microphone to the thump of ~100 decible hip-hop. How could anyone hear me???

In a lot of cases, I think gym owners figure yelling is a form of showing off or attention getting, like wearing ugly pants, and wearing a belt when you're benching.

In my own case, I only yell on the last rep of a buildup to max. I fill my lungs with air, pressurize my body (on back squats and deadlifts), and allow the yelling as a sort of pressure overflow valve when the tension gets too high. I don't so much yell as allow the air to escape. Especially with deadlifts, I'm normally dizzy for a second anyway.

Dear Ms. Palazzolo: Sometimes while rowing I push to a point at which I start to let out a sniveling dying-dog noise with each stroke. It's right before I get nauseous. I call it "diaphragm whining." Is that bad etiquette? Also sometimes when lifting I let out a little toot if you know what I mean. I am being rude?

Sweaty

Apparently Planet Fitness doesn't allow deadlifting, either. No sympathy for the guy. He chose to go to that gym.
