Oooooooh I HATE that! Even if nobody teeeechnically has a reserved spot, dang it that's where you like to go and it's annoying!
I agree that if someone is already IN it, you really can't do a lot. I know you like your spot, but you can get a good workout no matter where you stand, right?
But it sounds like they are full on taking your area after you have already gotten there. How obnoxious! When you go to get water, I would put my workout bag right where I was standing.
This may not be your style, but when I've had people be as annoying as that, I have no problem zumba-ing right into them. Then they don't want to be around me.
