I’m sorry this has happened to you. I see these types of personalities in many gyms I visit, but I pay no attention to them. Unfortunately gyms are the gathering place for many of them, because that is how they feed their egos.
Have you tried to bring this issue to the gym manager/owner attention? It would be cheaper and more effective than a lawyer (unless bodily injury has been done to you). Usually that helps and they can have them remove from their facility and revoke their memberships. The last thing gym owners and managers want is negative publicity and attention for their businesses. Good luck to you!
THE OWNER OF THE GYM SHOULD BE NOTIFIED. HE OR SHE SHOULD HANDLE THIS MATTER. I HAVE HAD A PERSONAL STUDIO FOR 39 YEARS WITH MANY GROUP TRAININGS. I HAVE A 0 TOKERANCE FOR BULLIIES AND HAVE REMOVED THEM FAST. SORRY YOU ARE HAVING THIS PROBLEM. MAYBE SUSAN IS RIGHT, JUST FIND ANOTHER GYM. THINGS SUCH AS THIS SHOULD NOT EXIST TODAY BUT I GUESS THEY STILL DO. GOOD LUCK.
I am sorry that you have experienced this. I will say that as an owner of a gym, I would want to know if this happened in my own gym, regardless if you decided to find another place to work out. I would want to make sure that it did not happen again to you or anyone else and remove those offending members from the gym.
I wish you well and Merry Christmas.
Best in Health,
