workout shoes

10 characters you might see at the gym:

1. the creeper. he stands directly behind you in every class.

favorite quote: “Nice yoga pants. Have I seen you here before?” / favorite workout song: Jason Derulo – Talk Dirty. 

2. the really old lady. she’s better at spin than you are.

favorite quote: “I’m going to die sitting on this bike right in the middle of class. hope you’re sick that day.” / favorite workout song: Florence + The Machine – Dog Days are Over.

3. the stuck up buff gay guy. he doesn’t speak to you, probably because of your choice of workout attire.

favorite quote: “I really love the locker rooms here.” / favorite workout song: Iggy Azalea – I’m So Fancy. 

4. the guy who won’t shut up. he just keeps yapping.

favorite quote: “I’m Fred and I’ve worked out here for 11 years and I love this instructor, do you love this instructor? and I have to work out hard today because I ate a huge steak last night with my son, did you know I have a single son?” / favorite workout song: R.E.M. – It’s the End of the World.

5. the amazing, very pregnant one. she’s 8 months in, kicking ass, and takin’ names.

favorite quote: “Do you think I can still do TRX classes or is that too much for my 3rd trimester?” / favorite workout song: Apparat – Hailin From the Edge. 

6. the silent yogi. little bit of a hipster with a tiny ponytail on top of his head. mean handstand.

favorite quote: “______” / favorite workout song: Joshua Radin – Brand New Day.

7. the motivator. the incredibly hot, hot, hot teacher.

favorite quote: “Let’s go people. 4 more sets. NO I’m NOT KIDDING. Go.” / favorite workout song: DJ Snake & Lil Jon – Turn Down for What. 

8. the faker. you never see them doing anything except standing around talking.

favorite quote: “You want to head to the juice bar to chat and take a break?” / favorite workout song: Icone Pop – I Don’t Care, I Love It.

9. me. see archived posts for more info.

favorite quote: “yes my gym is exorbitantly overpriced but money motivates me.” / favorite workout song: Timbaland & JT – Carry Out. 

10. the Biggest Winner. they need to lose over 100 pounds and are an inspiration to us all.

favorite quote: “I just wanted you to know that you are really strong and good at this class and I like standing by you. So thanks.” / favorite workout song: American Authors – Best Day of My Life.
