Pump ze Iron, Shut ze Mouth

Do you think people at the gym who grunt really loudly when they lift weights are aware of what they are doing?

Unlike snoring, surely this is a controllable bodily function, right?! And if said grunters know that they are grunting, does that mean that they think it's OK, or even impressive?

People at my gym who grunt make me feel really uncomfortable. It's like a totally unwanted glimpse into their sex life.

And in the case of the skinny 60 something year old man, who is also the loudest grunter to date, I really, really, really don't want that glimpse.

People of the world, exercise is good. Loud guttural noises when doing so is not. Keep it quiet in there!

Also, and I know I'm no doctor or personal trainer, I would think that if what you are doing is causing you to scream out in pain like that, then it probably isn't good for you in the first place.
