14 Type Of People You See At The Gym

They're rather easy to spot.

14 Type Of People You See At The Gym

If you're a gym rat like me, then you too have run into these kinds of people at the gym. Now, it's great that they're at the gym. It must mean that they have the intentions of bettering themselves, right? However, there are do's and don'ts when it comes to being at the gym. Here are 14 types of people that you'll see at the gym sooner or later:

1. The normal person.

Don't take this with a grain of sand. I mean, what even is normal anyways? But these are the people that go to the gym, do their thing, then leave. (Everybody thinks that they're this person, but are you really? Read on and find out.)

2. The creep.

This is the feller that's more focused on watching the ladies that are there than he is focused on his workout. Don't be this guy.

3. The meat head.

AKA The Hulk. He marches in and heads straight for the weights. He's huge, and he has that douchebag look on his face. Maybe he is one, maybe he's not. But who knows? He's certainly there for one thing and one thing only. And he's not taking any advice from others. Which leads me to my next person....

4. The advice giver.

This is the guy that feels the need to tell everyone what they should be lifting and other variations of exercises. Now, by all means if you see someone with bad form that could possibly get them hurt, then please do help them out. But heavens, let them do their thing. Surely they know how to use the internet if they wanted to find more exercises.

5. The one with blaring headphones.

I myself cannot workout without headphones and my own preference of workout music, but I don't crank the volume for others to hear. If I can hear your music that's in your ears over the music that's in mine, then it's too loud, bro.

6. The girls that only do cardio.

This one really bothers me. Like, you're in the gym, great! But if you're only paying for a membership just so that you can do cardio, then why are you doing it? Go to the park. Get you a bicycle. Get outside and enjoy nature. If the weather is bad, I get it. I truly do. But I'm not so sure I'd waste money on a membership if I could do the same thing outside for free...

7. The guys that never do cardio.

For whatever reason these guys think that cardio is the worst thing ever for their body and for whatever reason they think it makes them less of a man. Don't trust these guys.

8. The elderly people. Bless 'em.

They're so precious. I really tip my hat off to them for still seeing the importance that exercise is to your health. It doesn't matter what your age is. Sitting around the house deteriorates your health.

9. The loud obnoxious "pros."

These are the guys that feel it's necessary to grunt so loudly so that everyone in the gym is turning their heads to see what the heck is wrong with them. These are also the guys that think it's cute to just dead drop weights onto the floor and/or the equipment, therefore resulting in a very annoying and loud noise, as well as damage to the equipment. But they're the biggest guys in the gym, right? So what can we say?....

10. The ones that have absolutely no idea what they're doing.

Now, allow me this moment to say good for them for being there in the first place. However, sometimes it is quite entertaining to watch these people. This is where the question of 'Should I offer to help, or nah?' comes into play.

11. The lazy ones.

Grrrr. These are the ones that are apparently too weak to re-rack their weights after they are finished with them. But by all means go right ahead and leave those 45lb plates and 100lb dumbbells chilling on the floor in my way. I get great exercise doing what you somehow couldn't. You just got showed up by a girl, how does that feel?

12. The ones that think they own the place.

You go to the gym a lot. You know exactly what your workout will consist of. We get it. But this is a very popular gym. Wait your turn. If someone is on the leg press, be patient Cujo. You're not entitled to be on it before them just because you already knew in what sequence you would do it.

13. The ones that make themselves at home.

I can really only speak about the girls on this one because that's all I know of. It's great that the gym has showers and all, but this is not your bathroom at home. Don't just leave your shower stuff chilling on the sink and expect it to stay there until the next day. It's disgusting.

14. Those that do more socializing than working out.

They go to the gym with their buddies, and they talk literally the whole time they're there. They circle up and talk about things other than fitness. It's kind of annoying, and they're always in the way.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
