Most modern gyms feature smooth
operating machinery that operates in
close to total silence, but not at the Gym
of Sighs, Groans and Roaring.
Every piece of equipment here is
with a noise generator and a
comprehensive data base of sounds
extracted from a variety of sources
rasping metal; wooden beams straining;
leather being twisted, cars crashing into
When weights are thrown unto the
rubberised mats you may hear anything
from plate glass breaking, to concrete
walls collapsing. Even small weights are
able to generate floor shaking volume.
Choose "Random" and you will never
what sound is about to erupt into the
room as you drop your barbell.
To further enhance you work-out, you
also select "Sighs, Groans and Roaring."
this mode, even the most flimsy of
individuals will experience their modest
training session being punctuated with
noises of macho like grunts and loud
Running machines, of course, sound like
the galloping animal of choice. This
you can canter along like a pony or join a
herd of stampeding buffalos.
Would this drown out Stuart Sugarman?

||You're going to need a pretty powerful sound system to cover the noise of creaks, groans, pitiful whimpering, voices begging for oxygen masks, and the distictive high-pitched, rising whistle of a defribrilator charging ......
||OMG, as if if the place wasn't noisy enough already. Still, [+] for the fun.
||No fingernails on the chalkboard sound, please.
||These sighs and groan could be combined with an instrumental seventies disco track and the "nude incentive for exercise" (linked).
||Can you give it a male/female voice that grows more and more excited until the preset "completed" time? Theres some incentive!
