This goes back years and years, back when I 1st put a home gym in my spare room. I couldn't get decent workouts because people would come in and sit to talk, when they weren't talking they were watching. Aggravates the hell outta me.
Getting back into it, I'm back with the same/different issue. As soon as I put my gloves on to warm up on the kick boxing bag, the other home dweller comes jump on the couch. Same debate everytime. Go find something else to do, find another room. 2 other TVs, 1500 other sq ft of house, 2 acres of yard outside. For 45 minutes, don't be in my eye sight.
Its the same as the people who go to the gym and sit on equipment for 15 minutes talking instead of using it. GTF up and move along! I'm told its because I'm self conscious of someone watching and should deal with it. It messes up concentration and pesters me that someone can sit on their ass and watch someone else work out.
More of a rant I guess, typed it twice and still getting riled up about it.
2nd Edit: All the equipment is in the livingroom because I no longer have a spare room. It is piled floor to roof with her crap over 2 years. No option of outside, no covered areas.
