Ryan: (Looking at woman) We just have one more set each...
Woman: (Interrupting) Well then can I rotate in with you, because you both have been over here doing well over three sets a piece and you're taking too long.
Ryan: (Irritated at her tone) Yes, ma'am. You know, all you have to do is ask.
Woman: (Clearly irritated) I am asking. Don't you know that doing more than two sets of any given exercise is a waste of time?
Ryan: (Flabbergasted) Not really. Different people's bodies are built differently and different kinds of exercising accomplish different goals.
Woman: That's not true. If you read any of the books on the subject, you'll see that more than two sets of any exercise at a time is worthless.
Ryan: (Incredulous) Ok, ma'am...
Woman: (Patting Ryan on the shoulder) You keep believing that, you'll be fine.
This is not a good example on how to behave at the gym. Or anywhere. And when it comes to something like working out, I'll trust someone's advice who actually has worked out for a while over someone whose only exercise in recent memory was flipping the page of the newest fitness guru's book du jour.
People are much nicer at Ballys.
I would have opened up a can of woop A**
Seems to me you could remove the prepositional phrase, there, and still be just as accurate:
"This is not a good example of how to behave." Period.
She would have kicked ur sorry butt if you had provoked her.
