Am I the only dude who completely blocks everyone out at the gym?
No, but I guess I don't need to since I'm the only one training at our facility at night!
When I trained at commercial gyms, I definitely blocked out everyone/everything around me. My workouts were always better when I would be able to drown out my surroundings and focus only on what I needed to. I know some people probably thought I was an a-hole for not being Mr. Friendly, but I never went to the gym to socialize, it was always business. The few people I ended up talking to were nice, but became the guys who thought it was fine to try and have a 10 minute conversation between sets, so I'm not at all unhappy to be away from that whole scene now that I train alone again.
