Most people want to go to quietly go to the gym before work, or nip in after work for a quick workout before chilling out at home, but its so hard when you are faced with these gym personalities. It’s almost certain you will come across at least of these in your local gym.
Gym personality 1 – The Hunk
Literally ripped from head to toe, their heads slowly disappearing into their shoulders and probably stood in the mirror working out, but not checking themselves out – “admiring their performance and giving them motivation”. Yeah, OK then!
The hunks will more than likely be wearing a tank top just to show off their muscles but if for some reason you cant see them you’d certain hear them grunting or snorting like a pig everything time they lift the free weights, and obviously its the heaviest ones that no-one else can even attempt to lift.
Gym personality 2 – Miss Princess
Miss Princess doesn’t actually need to go to the gym, she’s perfect anyway; just wants to show off her natural toned stomach and her freshly blow dried hair, a bobble is optional, depends how she’s feeling on the day!
Miss Princess would have full face of make up and maybe some false eyelashes to make her eyes sparkle that tiny bit more and you’d probably see her doing some step aerobics – you know, something nice and easy so she doesn’t break a sweat. Also, you’d probably find ‘The Hunks’ somewhere close, there’s always some sexual tension between them two.
Gym personality 3 – The Chatterbox
The chatter boxes, a small group of friends who have promised each other ‘we will do this together’ – even though the mouth is the only part of the body getting that real workout. Gotta love girl power though
Gym personality 4 – The Boss
These people think they own the place, taking up not one but about three lockers and probably a whole bench to put all their towels, clothes and hair products on. The boss is friends with everyone, literally. Well… if you class saying hi to everyone in the gym your friend then yes everyone is your friend – good job!
Gym personality 5 – The Couch Potato
The couch potatoes are normally zoned out somewhere, preferably infront of a TV so he has some similarities as being at home or maybe reading a book somewhere away from everyone; all they want is a bit of peace and quiet, bless them!
Gym personality 6 – The Major
The major is actually very similar to ‘The Boss’ – they know all the gym instructors by name and chat to the newbies to make them feel at home. Aww, what a lovely person; or was lovely until they advised you how to improve your workout because basically yours was pants! *rolls eyes*
Gym personality 7 – The Lunch-Breaker
Bless these people, after working all morning they still manage to motivate themselves for a quick lunch break gym sesh; however, by the time they get there they have to turn around and go back to work anyway, but I suppose that’s good for them, no messy hair or sweatiness (: – bonus!
