Do You Enjoy the "Fittingly Mad" Feature?

Do You Enjoy the "Fittingly Mad" Feature?

Today, instead of doing my usual rant appropriately called Fittingly Mad, which is full of musings about things I find silly in the fitness and health world, I thought I'd try a poll on it instead.

The feature is not meant to be mean, but a funny way to allow us all to joke around about pet peeves that most of us share surrounding health and fitness. Being that I've gotten some negative feedback, I thought it would be a good idea to get your opinion on this weekend feature since I want to keep the site focus on motivation and fun, but certainly not offensive.

So check out all the past Fittingly Mad posts and let me know what you think!

I think for the most part they are funny! Maybe the stomper will read it one day and stop.

They can be fun but the one about "treadmill stompers" was a little over the edge. Everyone should refrain from ranting about people who are trying to get fit. It is this fear of ridicule that can keep some people out of gyms. Things like not wiping down gym equipment is gross and should be ranted about.

Keep it up Fit. I like the posts. FitSugar is about all the best ways to become and stay healthy and when you find things out there that are annoying, irritating or plan outlandish I want to hear about it! :D

Hey, an occasional rant is healthy, and incidentally, entertaining.

Just wanted to clarify - the treadmill post did not offend me at all. In fact when I read the comments of people saying they were offended it surprised me. But, with that being said, I remember how intimidating it was for me to 1. Join a gym and 2. Actually go to the gym. Every time I went at the beginning I felt like everyone was staring at me and knew that I had no idea what to do. It can be a very intimidating atmosphere - so with that in mind I'd say that posts like the treadmill stomp may have made me a little weary when I was starting to work out. I can't say for sure that it would have - but I can see how it could.

I skip over that feature because most of the ones I've read seem overly petty, but then again I'm extremely laid-back and nothing really bothers me too much. I don't think you should stop doing that feature, though, as there are obviously people who enjoy it and those who don't can easily skip over them! =)

Love them!And really, there are things that annoy all of us, and quite frankly I think we get WAY too PC sometimes. It annoys you, it annoys a lot of us, and it's okay to say so. You didn't say "Mr. Jim Johnson of 123 Street in San Diego, CA is stomping on his treadmill at Bob's Power Plant every morning at 6:00 am."I guess I just wonder why people took it so personally. Just a thought.

i like it, please don't stop it.not only do the treadmill stompers get to me, but also the guy at the gym who puts the treadmill speed to high, takes a few steps, then stands on the sides of the treadmill for a minute as the treadmill continues. i wish i could tell him that the hour he spent standing on the sides of the treadmill only counts for about 40 steps, and he should just slow the speed down so he can actually keep up, even if he just starts out walking.

I like them! And I really enjoyed the treadmill rant, it was so true!! Anyway, yes I think they should stay. It looks like the majority of fitsugar readers do like it, so I think that those who do not like the feature can just skip over it! :)

I think if someone is offended by one of the posts, it is an oportunity to look at the behavior they so closely identify with and see if they might be that annoying to other people without it being personal.
