I may not be a fitness freak but I am quite conscious about my body weight and therefore I work out at least 5 times a week. Yeah, that’s true. Since, I am not disciplined kind of person, so I prefer heading to the gym instead of doing it at home by myself. Besides, there are several exercises that one must not try without the supervision of an expert.
Since we are talking about gym, I can say that a place where we workout is sometimes a whole new world. In a way, you get to interact with a small part of society and meet different types of people. They all have different personality traits and yet it’s fun to interact with them. In this post, you will get to know about different types of people you will always encounter at the gym:
- Those Who Pretend to Know Everything
“Don’t do sit-ups like this or you will hurt you back.”, “If you do this exercise like this, you will grow your muscles much faster.” These are some common things that you get to know from people who are self-proclaimed professionals. They may not pay attention to their own exercises but will try to give you all possible kinds of suggestions.
- Those with the Best Workout Gears
I don’t really like to spend on exercise gears and especially those exercise hand bands though I want my shoes to be perfect. But, there are some people in gym with this crazy obsession for the best workout gears. Besides, they get all their exercise gears in different colors and styles. Epic!
- Those with Deep Selfie Love
Selfie lovers are omnipresent. You can find them everywhere whether it’s a shopping mall, office or even gym. They will enter the gym with their phone in a hand and find the best place to click a picture of themselves looking in the mirror. They take multiple pictures and then select the best one to post on social media.
- Those with Super Friendly Nature
There is nothing wrong in socializing and interacting with the people you see every day but sometimes it’s too much to handle. It is not an issue when you just say ‘Hey’ and then carry on with the warm up. At the gym, you will definitely find someone who will try to have long conversations with you. I still remember my first day at gym when a guy standing next to me explained why he hates his job.
- Those with Extremely Cute Smile (You Know What I mean)
These people are the attraction of the gym. There will be at least one person with a cute smile that you might find fascinating. Some people call it the ‘gym crush’ but I think it’s not true in all cases.
- Those with Uncontrollable Talking Habit
No offence but I just hate it when people keep talking for no genuine reason. No matter how hard you look at them or what you say, they won’t stop unless and until they want to. And the worst part, these people sometimes forget that it’s a place for working out and not a club for regular gatherings.
- Those with Obsession for Equipment
Some people jump straight on treadmill instead of doing warm ups just because of their unnecessary obsession for equipment. They ensure to occupy their favorite exercise machine the moment they enter the gym and won’t move unless you leave the gym. These are probably the most annoying people you will find at your gym.
- Those with Exceptional Enthusiasm
These people will enter the gym with ultimate zest for workout. It seems like they are coming straight from a party or are excited about something. They will greet everyone with enthusiasm and start working out as if it is the only aim of their life.
- Those Who Drink Lots of Water during Workout
Usually, gym trainers highly recommend to avoid drinking lots of water right after or during the workout. But, most people don’t consider it as a point to be remembered. You will also find these people at the gym who drink lots of water. In fact, they act like this is the only thing they want in their life.
Some of these people might be annoying at times but, they make the entire ambiance of the gym quite entertaining. Believe me! So, next time you hit the gym, just take a look around and see how many types of people you find there. By the way, which one do you think you are from the list?
