Via Drudge, I see that a gym has banned grunting, and is enforcing the rule. While there's clearly more to the story than just that, I'm happy to see that there are some options for men who don't like to work out with grunty guys. That's why I left 24hr Fitness and went to Curves -- 24hr Fitness had the same setup (here are a bunch of machines, spend 30 seconds on each one, go around in a circuit in this direction, etc.), but the guys there seemed incapable of following directions (jump in in front of you and take over a machine for 10 minutes) and were the nastiest, stinkiest, noisiest people I've come across. At Curves, there's no stinking, no nastiness, and no grunting!
