I am for teenagers getting together to be productive in a safe place but aren't there better places to do this.

So I have been making an effort to get back into the gym and try to get in better shape. I prefer to go to the gym late at night, it's not as crowded, and I can get in and out and get my workouts done quickly The problem is recently, I have noticed there are a lot more people in the gym, and that's usually because of the new year, and everyone wants to get in shape.

Over the past few weeks, there has been an uptick of people going late to the gym, but it's not folks who are working out, it's teenagers who are using the gym as a hangout spot, and it's pretty infuriating.

You might be thinking, but I bet they are working out, you are wrong. When there are seven people huddled around one machine shooting the breeze, you aren't working out these teens are there to hang out with your buddies.

It's just a bummer because they could go anywhere else in the gym to hang out and have their social hour. Why not go to the basketball court or just the lobby? Those are great places.

I might sound like a curmudgeon, but when I go to the gym, I want to get in and out as fast as possible. I don't have two to three hours to kill as some people do. That's all I have, rant over.
