This weekend I thought I would mix it up and go to a different gym for a workout. In today’s post I thought I would share with you some of the characters I met while there.
This post serves as a reminder as to why Krystie and I set up Results.
Please don’t take this post too seriously it’s just a bit of fun 🙂
1 – The Phone Zombie
You know the guy I am talking about, he’s the one that has been sitting on the bench press for 20 minutes having a phone conversation with his mate Dave. He is completely oblivious to the fact that you might just want to use the bench.
Don’t be the phone zombie guy. You’re in the gym for a purpose and that purpose is NOT to check instagram between sets
2 – The Hardcore Bodybuilder
He will be the one checking his arms out in the mirror. No doubt he will be wearing a stringer and grunting between sets. His workout today is 10 sets of 10 reps on bicep curls
3 – The Dumbbell Rack Hogger
Don’t get me wrong the dumbbell row is a fantastic exercise but you don’t need to perform it while holding the rack. Did it ever cross your mind that someone might want to use that 20kg that you have commandeered yourself all over?
4 – The Ego
You have seen them. Tall colourful socks, reebok trainers and their t-shirt… well somewhere on the floor after they throw it off during their set of high rep olympic lifts and burpees.
5 – The Upper Body Bro
You got this bro, all you, all you. The bro will be doing yet another workout of chest and biceps and between curls he will be finding the best angle for his next selfie pic.
Simpy avoid him by training legs. He doesn’t know what they are 🙂
6 – The Dodgy Personal Trainer
With his two week qualification he now is the fountain of fitness knowledge. If your trainer tells you standing on swiss balls is functional or utters the words ‘it’s supposed to hurt’ then put your wallet back in your pocket and leave.
7 – The Talker
He’s the guy that interrupts your workout to have a chat. He will often invade your personal space and talk about nothing but himself. No matter how politely you try and escape he won’t let you.
Dear Mr Talker, you may not care about your workout but I do. Please I am asking nicely. Leave me to my deadlifting
That’s it for today. Who did I miss?
