Talwalkars - 7 personality wonders of the gym

  1. 1. 7 Personality Wonders of the GymWe’ve all been subjected to at least one of these odd characters once or twice in our gym visits -some strange enough to make you take the headphones out of your ears and stare in disbelief. Herewe break down seven types of gym personalities that make us do a double take.The Incredibly Hairy Hulk
What’s short, out of shape and is hairy everywhere but his head.When that shirt you thought he was wearing turns out to be 100% authentic, all-natural, humanbody hair, your post-gym snack suddenly seems like the last thing on your mind. When sweat beadsget trapped in his fur it looks like grass with morning dew on it. But then again, a little bit of sweatyhair never hurt anybody.The GrunterAs youre slowly walking through the gym, looking for the least-intimidating piece of equipmentaround youll soon hear strange and upsetting sounds, thats the Grunter,who cant exercise withoutforcefully exhaling like a seal in heat.The strange thing is that with every rep they do they let out the most disgusting guttural moan "Duh-duh-Duh-DUh-Duh-DA-DA! Phwum-phwum-PHWUm-PHWUM-DA-DA-DA-PWHUMMMM. Many findthat the grunting is an integral part of their strength and timing, something they cant exercisewithout, which would be fine if they were in the gym alone.The GoddessShes been on the treadmill for 45 minutes, and she hasnt cracked a sweat, even though shesrunning at six mph. This chicklet is the one who is wearing full-blown make up and hair done up likeshe just stepped out of a salon and looks like she is ready for a night at the club. This goddess doesmore work texting to her friends and finding songs on her iPod then actual exercise in her hour stintat the gym.Cardio LadyThis lady seems to be on a cardio machine every time you go to the gym regardless of the time orday. Whether she is walking on the treadmill, cycling, or using the elliptical machine, she alwaysappears to be doing a minimum of 2 hours of cardio a day.Loud Social ButterflySure, we’ve all seen people at the gym with their phones plugged into their ears, or shooting off aquick text here and there - but that is generally unobtrusive to your normal workout experience. Ourpersonality in question here is the loud, treadmill socialite. They’ll be happy to share with the entiregym their weekend plans, spoil the latest movie they saw. Just to reassure yourself that you’re notthe only one that finds this type of behaviour completely distracting and unnecessary.
  2. 2. Superstar TrainerThis guy is at the gym in his trainer uniform or working out at least 80 hours a week. You would thinkhe has cot in the men’s locker room. He is talking it up with all the patrons and thinks that everybodyis his best friend. Even on his off days, he will be there for a double work out. The gym is his both hislife and self esteem booster.Short Term Gym GuestThese members, for whatever reason, decide now is the time to get in shape. They are usually out ofshape or obese. These members are normally seen working out with a personal trainer due to aregistration package they just signed up with. Also probably have a few new gym outfits to helpmotivate them and make them fit in. However, they are out of shape for a reason and once thepersonal training sessions run out, they become an extinct guest.Gym is a place that allows you to break a sweat, relieve some stress, and meet people all in onelocation. Unless you are in a specialized gym that is either for just yoga, weightlifting, or Pilates thereis a good chance you will come across each of these easily identifiable characters at your local gym.
