The Absolute Worst People at the Gym

The gym. A dungeon of torments for some, a meditative palace of solitude for others. Either way, it's the same gym, and we all have to share it – whether we like it or not. Usually... not. That's because humans are amazing creatures, but people are the worst. This is a list of the worst people we've all seen and we've all had to deal with at our local gym. Hopefully, our 2018 workout music playlist helps block out unwanted distractions. 

This list might also be of some help to a few of you. DON'T BE THESE PEOPLE. If you find yourself or any of your loved ones practicing any of these philosophies or exhibiting any of these behaviors, check yourself immediately or you will surely wreck yourself.

Who are the most annoying people at your gym? Vote, vote, vote... unless you don't even lift.

    People Who Don't Clean Up Their Sweat

    The gym is already disgusting beyond imagination. Why are you making it worse? It takes three seconds. Wipe it down.

    Mr. Unwanted Advice

    They know everything there is to know about every exercise, every training regimen, and every diet plan, and they can't wait to tell you about it, even though you've never met.

    Also, this guy is usually short for a grown male and weighs about a buck twenty-five. Thanks, bro. I'll hit you up during the next famine.

    They're locusts. They're everywhere, and they're not going anywhere anytime soon. Look for them at the gym nearest to you, drinking pre-workout shakes together and talking really loudly about the "chick they banged" last night and probably lying about it.

    People Who Talk to You Mid Set

    There is an iron bar above my head with hundreds of pounds of iron plates on it. Why do think that this is a good time to talk? It isn't. You shouldn't be distracted by your own inane conversation, you should be focused on making sure I don't drop that aforementioned rock weight on my skull.
