The gym is a place where you can go and work on your health and fitness. However, there are some people there who are determined to make sure you have a good day at the gym, or a bad one. Of course you are only going for yourself and minding your own business, but there are people at the gym that you cannot help but notice. Here are 6 types of people you meet at the gym.
The Selfie Takers
I get it. You have an Instagram. Going to the gym is in right now. Put it together and what do you have, that person that is in front of the mirror taking selfies nonstop. You are not on the photoshoot set for Sport Illustrated’s Body Issue. These are the types of people that are usually in activewear grocery shopping. Listen, nobody cares if you crushed that workout Susan. I mean honestly, you can do what you want, but you should know, you are hogging up space in front of the mirror.
The Leg Day Guy
This is your friend who is always complaining about how their legs are so sore. You finally start going to the gym with them and you never see them working on their legs at all. Never seeing them work on their legs coupled with the fact that they are built like your seventh grade gym teacher, it is at this moment you realize they are full of s**t.
Texters, why are you here? You are not even working out. You know that is the whole point of going to the gym correct? To work out? If you did you would not be sitting there texting Beverly to take you back. Seriously, work that situation out at home. The real problem is that while you are texting you are hogging up a machine that I am certain someone would actually like to use.
The Loud Grunter
Picture it: you are at the gym. It is early in the morning. You thought today would be the perfect day to work on your regimen. You are on the treadmill or bike or whatever machine of your choice, watching the good old news and then you hear it, the grunt.
Grunters at the gym, I just want to know, why? Why are you grunting so loudly? Is there ever a time where the sound of grunting sounds like a sweet song from The Sound Of Music? No! Clearly the weights you are working with are too heavy for you. The sounds you are putting out into the universe sounds like you are taking a crap and having sex, activities none of us would like to be a part of. It’s awkward af so please, if you cannot workout without making noises, ditch the gym and workout at home.
The newbies are easy to spot. Usually they look at the machines like how your dog looked at the new kitten you brought home. They circle it. They read the pictures. They are confused when it comes to what handle to grab or button to push. Now I’m not making fun of them I was the newbie a couple times. It’s pretty fun to watch them actually…until they take the pin out of the weights, then it’s time to go help them.
The Person Who Doesn’t Wipe Down Their Machine
You know those spray bottles and towels scattered all over the gym? Yeah, well, they are there for a reason.
