Now, we are totally not into stereotyping but let’s be real… We all know that there are certain ‘types’ of people that you find in EVERY gym!
Read, share and have a laugh! Let us know where you fit in the gym type categories!
1. The super-enthusiastic elderly person.
Gym accessories: High-waisted sweatpants, one-kilo weights, and apparently the secret to everlasting life. This super-granny has the ability to make us all shrink behind our dumbbells in shame (because we all know she is fitter than we are)!
2. The person who might as well live at the gym.
Gym accessories: Workout clothes that reveal as much glistening skin as possible, the ability to bench-press you and your whole family, and a gym bag full of creatine supplements.
3. The newbie who can’t seem to figure out any of the machines.
Gym accessories: Brand-new sneakers and gym clothes, and (in a couple hours) a hernia. Don’t worry we all secretly started here!
4. The one talking on the phone REALLY LOUD while on the treadmill.
Gym accessories: Earphones with built-in microphone for SUPER-LOUD TALKING, and the ability to ignore any and all dirty looks from other gymgoers. We have to give them credit for their muti-tasking ability!
5. The one who’s waaaaaaaaaay sweaty.
Gym accessories: Soaking-wet clothes, a gym towel that isn’t going to help at all, and a total disregard for how wet he leaves the machines.
6. The Gym Class Army.
Gym accessories: Lorna Jane everything, insane core strength, and colour coordination that’s on point.
7. The guy who skipped leg day. Every leg day.
Gym accessories: Bulging muscles north of the equator and twigs that are about to break.
8. The creeper.
Gym accessories: None. He’s there to creep. Creep urr day, creep urr night.
10. The people taking selfies.
Gym accessories: A smartphone and extensive knowledge of which Instagram filter is most flattering depending on the time of day.
