Btw, whoever posted about the NY accent thing.. That was kind of offensive. My mom and my entire family talk like that. It doesn't mean they're all ignorant.
That was me, and MY ENTIRE FAMILY talks like that too (Both parents, both sisters, all 40+ aunts/uncles/cousins and all four of my deceased Brooklyn born and raised grandparents). I was born and raised on Long Island and the fam still lives there. Moved to NC when I was 26.

And although my mom and all my aunts/uncles and cousins talk with that accent, I don't have one as severe. I don't know why, maybe because I was raised by my mom (Brooklyn accent) and her boyfriend of 20 years (Turkish accent). People can normally tell I'm from NY but I don't sound as bad as my mom. It's not by choice, I wouldn't choose to change my accent as I'm proud of being a New Yorker.

I did not go very far in reading the posts under it--but there seemed to be quite a few from people who have seen him at that gym--seems he s a regular and this is typical for him. He probably knew he was being filmed and does not care anymore--he must be pretty good at tuning out negative stuff.

Definitely NOT laughing at the guy. I'd like him to be my work out partner.

This is like the lady who danced while working out on a treadmill. I sometimes sing while I am warming up before a run, but usually quietly.

I'm not arguing with you whether it's offensive to make fun of accents. I agree.

My point was I found filming this guy and embarrassing him online is offensive, too.

Using the word "ax" in place of "ask" is one of my pet peeves, so I get where Jennasis is coming from.

Now, about the video... If I were a member of this gym, I would be much less bothered by this guy dancing than I would be by someone filming. It wouldn't matter that they weren't filming me. I would be concerned that I would turn up in the back ground all red-faced and huffing and puffing a treadmill or something.

I would think that most gyms would not allow you to film other members.

How would they know? Unless there is someone watching everyone all the time and that isn't the case at our gym. I think this guy has a great attitude and he's in great shape, I do see the humor in this video and I'm sure he does too. And yesterday at the gym, doing tricep curls on the weight machine, I was doing 5 lbs....because my triceps are weaker then I thought. LOL I'm going to try to work up to 20 lbs....think I can do it? LOL

I just can't get over how long it must take him to get through a workout.... The reason why could be anything... Maybe he is a professional dancer, dances for fun or maybe he has OCD.
