The gym, a place to keep fit, unwind and whatever other reason we may want to tag it to, but there are a few characters who have made it almost impossible to enjoy the gym and its benefits, well probably apart from them.
These are the kind of people I am talking about;
They don’t want to leave the equipment even when it’s obvious other people are waiting to use it. Maybe they’re too caught up in their zone to notice the waiting line or they just don’t care. If you notice they’re not leaving the equipment any time soon, you can move on to other equipment or alert them, but moving to another equipment always works out better.
You never see them coming, even if you try and keep up with their whereabouts and they always find you in the middle of intense workout. There’s nothing wrong with a little flirting after the post-workout shower. However, nobody wants to chat on a treadmill or lifting weights, let alone when you’re dripping sweat. It’s distracting and a bit uncomfortable especially if you’re not used to the gym atmosphere.
You might have seen posts of hot girls or hot guys in front of a mirror at the gym and thought everybody looks like that. Spoiler, they don’t. First, let’s talk about their outfit. Though cute, it’ not very practical for the gym. It’s either too tight or too skimpy. They have a full face of makeup and look like they’re effortlessly beautiful. They spend most of the time taking selfies and posting on Instagram. Some go as far as to live-stream their workouts.
Workouts can get intense and we all let out noises to release the tension. However, the attention-seeking kind goes way overboard with their workout noises. Even when they’re doing the barest minimum, you can always expect loud grunts and moans from this person. It seems to be always about them and what they’re doing. In many cases, they’re regular gym goers but have somehow not yet used to the workouts. If it’s causing you that much distress, maybe try something more of your speed.
The Stink Bomb
There are people who re-wear their gym clothes without washing them. You can imagine how they smell even a day after. When they get next to you at the gym, you almost want to pass out because of how they reek. Whether you’re a sweaty person or not, your gym clothes are bound to get musky after a workout. Make sure you wear a set of clean gym clothes at least after every two sessions depending on how you sweat. Additionally, avoid wearing perfume as this makes the scent more intense.
In as much as they annoy to some extent, they are quite interesting characters to keep up with. Plus it’s a crazy world, everyone is crazy in their own way.
