    At my university's gym, a facility constructed with the main aim of the uni's athletes having a good training facility, with platforms, bumper plates, racks, etc., we used to have guys who looked like they tanned with bleached blonde hair wearing wife beaters who weren't even students complain that the athletes doing power cleans and other olympic lifts damaged the floor (despite the fact the place was fucking constructed for them to do their damned power cleans and other lifts) and distracted them from doing their quarter range bench presses with 80kg.

    Good luck on the training.
