And it seems we have a bumper crop of Stupid getting fit.


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Metro police are warning gymgoers to lock up their belongings after multiple reports of keys being taken from locker rooms and used to steal cars.

“People go to the gym, they’re focused on I’ve got to get my workout in, maybe it’s chest day, maybe I’m trying to get some cardio in,” West Precinct Investigations Lt. Keith McNamara explained. “But in the meantime, somebody else has other plans.”
West Precinct officers are working hard to catch at least four suspects after keys were taken from the Planet Fitness on Charlotte Pike last week and the Bellevue YMCA on April 13.

“What they’re doing is they’re taking keys, wallets and other valuables out of unsecured lockers and then they’ll take those keys out to the parking lot and steal the car while the patron is inside working out,” Lt. McNamara said.

Police looking for thieves targeting Nashville gymgoers (

Since I started going to the gym, I used the lockers maybe three times and always with a lock. I ended up designing a routine that did not involve the use of a locker because I found it to be a waste of time in my particular case. I carry all my stuff with me in a secured manner and nobody is the wiser. And I understand that some people may have to use the locker, but for Adonis’ sake, invest in a lock and only leave in there what you can afford to lose.

If you can lug around the stupid nalgene bottle in between stations and weights, you can carry your car keys and wallet.

  1. Stupidly abounds in “modern “ America….
    It is our biggest obstacle and it can’t be fixed by us. The dumb ones have to learn the hard way. And when they do EVERYONE suffers.
    liberals favorite “fix” is more laws..

  2. What percentage of the population do you think woke up this morning with the ambition to steal something from someone else? And then there are the people who believe…if a person is dumb enough not to protect their stuff from theft, then it’s ok to take it, because they didn’t deserve it if they didn’t respect the value of it. Everything is “free” if it’s not protected… is the motto of many.

  3. On days when I go straight to the gym on the way home I use a locker and bring my own lock that lives clipped to my gym bag. Its just like school rules.

    On days when I go from home to the gym I’m already dressed appropriately and all my stuff fits nicely in a little fannypack. Glock 42, key fob, headphone case. Does it look a bit dorky? Sure but its great to just walk in and walk out no muss no fuss.

    With the amount of weirdos and passersby in a gym why on earth would anyone for a second leave their stuff unsecured and think its safety was someone elses concern.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
