How would you react if a guy shouted at you in the gym?

Some stranger guy shouted at me in the gym for making several eye contacts to him. Obviously, I was doing that because he had a good physique, but he thought otherwise probably. Little rude from him. I just kept my mouth shut and avoided eye contacts for the later part. But how would you guys react if someone shouted at you in the gym for a mistake as little as that.

Shouting like proper shouting or more of a "WTF are you looking at?" angry voice?
 
I wouldn't do anything either way.   He's probably harder than me.

It was just 'are you ok, man' in a loud angry voice, nothing else.
 
I was not intimated by the fact that he had a good physique, I just wanted to avoid trouble.

Never perved at anyone intentionally in the gym, it might have happened a few times by mistake, like you get carried away sometimes you know.

Did you actually respond? I think in that exact situation he was justified in what he said so I wouldn't do anything - if I felt someone was out of order I would report it to the gym manager.

I just said' hey man, i just wanted the bench' and walked away. You are right, he was justified in what he did, but he could have said the same thing in a nice manner and I could have got the message.

I would have replied that I was O.K. , I might have walked over and said "No offence, just watching the way you were (what ever exercise he was doing) " and shook his hand. Its best to sort these things out rather than it turning into some on going thing where you will be giving each other looks every time you pass each other in the Gym.
He was probably just having a bad day, I wouldn`t read too much into it.

i shouted at a guy last monday, well he did walk right in front of me while i was mid rep on a 200+kg deadlift the fck.... his only goal was to fetch a 5kg plate.
 
I wouldnt shout at someone who was eye balling me all the time though, just kind of wonder why he was staring.
In previous gyms this was a big no no as the area was pretty rough and clicky.

You should have told him the truth.
 
I was shouted at about 6 months ago, because I wasn't wearing shoes.  Some guy (never seen him before) stormed over and asked if I was going to put my shoes back on.  Took me by complete suprise as he was pretty worked up about it.  I told him 'no'.  He said it was not hygenic and I told him my feet were cleaner than the bottom of his shoes.
I was not agressive in any way and he quickly calmed down.

Some stranger guy shouted at me in the gym showers for making several japseye contacts to him. Obviously, I was doing that because he had a good physique, but he thought otherwise probably. Little rude from him. I just kept my mouth open and avoided contacts for the later part. But how would you guys react if someone shouted at you in the gym for a mistake as little as that.




Not that small a mistake mate, I would count yourself lucky, and just put it down to on the job learning.
 
I don't tend to look or touch anyone in the gym so would most likely not get myself into that situation.

I sometimes feel like asking people why they are staring at me. Usually the guys sat resting on benches in front of the mirrors.

Then I tell myself to briskly walk past and ignore them as it's more than likely my own self-conscious introversion and social anxiety kicking in during a state of utter shellshocked paranoia

do you think thats the case all the time? willing to take a gamble?
some guys who made a lot of noise were guys to really avoid, some were just cheeky upstarts.

I cant tell the OP how to react but as the question is how would I react if someone shouted at me just for making eye contact?
 
Id Say to him Who you think your talking to?
 
If he get up and says you. then its game on I dont care what he looks like, what hes on.
 
If I do something wrong without realising I always say sorry to whoever it is but he not gonna speak to me how he wants and act like the Silverback of the gym just cause hes had a bad day.

Fundamentally it's usually because they are not particularly bright.
