Top 3 Different Types of People You’ll Meet at the Gym

Going to the gym can be a rather fun experience, in spite of all the hard work one has to put into it in order to get results. The most interesting part, however, comes from the variety of people that you can find there, which isn’t unlike trying to find as many different dating sites, such as cowboy, transgender and cougar dating sites.

That’s why we’ve decided to take a look at the 3 most specific individuals today, which can both make your experience in the gym that much interesting – or that can pretty much halt all of your progress.

1. The CrossFit Zealots

CrossFit isn’t for everyone, that’s for sure, but those who do practice it tend to take their workouts to a level where only they can actually fit and everyone else is a loser and doesn’t know how to properly work out.

These total fanatics rarely go alone and can be found in groups of zealots that celebrate every rep with over-the-top cheering and have a personal goal of becoming absolute rulers of every single machine, tool and piece of equipment in the gym.

Being in the presence of these people can do one of three things to you: their show of dominance will demotivate you, they will cause resentment and you’ll become more motivated to work out or, in the worst scenario, they will pull you into their cult.

2. The Gym Legend

The gym is full of people who work hard and put a lot of time and effort into losing weight and building muscle. However, none of them will ever compare to that one guy who knows exactly how to do each exercise and who doesn’t seem to strain about any move.

This legendary superhero of the gym is quiet, friendly and strong as a mountain. You can load pretty much any weight and ask him to show you any exercise, and he’ll know how to do it. He’s been around for quite a while and is most likely working out just to stay in shape, which is where he’s different from those CrossFit freaks we’ve mentioned before.

3. The Chatter

Now that we have two types of gym-goers that can be recognized by how they work out, it’s high time to mention that one specific person that doesn’t actually do anything physical at all in the gym – instead, he or she likes to chat with others.

The Chatter is the person that you can hear talking as soon as you enter the gym. They’re usually standing next to someone who is working out and talking their ear off about gym-related things, as well as anything else that comes to their mind. For these people, a gym is a place for socializing, not for working out.

Try to stay away from the Chatter as much as you can because this person can be as dangerous to your workout progress as any CrossFit maniac.
