7 People You'll See At The Gym

7 People You'll See At The Gym

You know you're one of them.

Every once in a while I get on this health kick and suddenly all I want to do is workout, eat right, and get healthy. Normally this fades after a few weeks when I realize pizza, eating out and Netflix are way more fun than waking up at five a.m. to go to the gym. But for right now, I'm going to try working out and see if i can get it to stick. When you go to the gym there are a few different people that you will definitely see...

1. The Fashionista

Literally using going to the gym as an excuse to buy new clothes. And you can't help but wonder where she got them from.

2. The Clique

They all came together, they workout next to each other, they lift weights together, they get drinks of water together, maybe they pee together, who knows? But whenever they go they go there together

3. The Old People

You watch them and think, "You go, old man! You've got this!" And you're also a little jealous that they are in better shape when your supposed to be in your prime.

4. The Arms

Usually a guy, but could be a girl, who has massive arms but obviously skips leg day. So their legs just look like tiny tooth picks sticking out from their shorts.

5. The Lost Child

The one who you can't help but feel bad for because it's painfully obvious that they have no clue what they are doing.

6. The Fantasy

These people look perfect. Their arms, legs, abs, everything is perfectly toned. They are what you want to look like at the end of the day. Plus they are usually really nice to look at.

7. The Worst

This person could be any of the aforementioned types but this person you hate with every inch of your soul. This person stole your machine. Yes, you know that technically you don't own it but you use it all the time so it's almost yours. And not they've taken it from you and so you'll hate them forever.

To The Tinder Boy Who Unknowingly Saved My Life

You don't know how amazing you are, and I wish you could see yourself through my eyes.

As freshman year winds down and I have no roommates to thank for this, no friends to thank for that, and not much of anything to say about my freshman year, I do have one big thank you to say.

Dear Tinder Boy,

We had known each other via social media for a very short time before we actually connected in person on campus. There wasn't much to say when we did meet up. We had so little in common, yet having a conversation felt so effortless and natural. Perhaps this is why I felt as though you were my soulmate in a friend way and opened up to you in the ways that I did.

You constantly tell me that you can't see what you did to help me. You don't see the impact on my life you have had. But that doesn't matter. What matters is that I see the good things you've done for me. I owe you more thanks than what I am allowed to write. But for now, I'll just thank you for the most important things.

Thank you for swiping right on Tinder. Without Tinder, we never would have crossed paths on campus, and I believe that I wouldn't be where I am today. Thank you for swiping right and for sending the first message to me.

Thank you for being my first friend on campus. Little do you know that you were my first friend on campus and your simple "hello" made me want to engage with you.

Thank you for being you. Your true self is so beautiful and pure. You show me every day what a good man looks like. You show me how to be strong and how to push forward.

Thank you for being the person I can depend on here. I know that no matter what, you'll be there in the end. Some days, you're the only one waiting for me at the finish line of every day and that's okay, that's all I need.

Thank you for being real. You tell me when I'm being dramatic or too much. You tell me how it is and don't sugar coat a single thing. Nobody here does that for me. Your realness is a true gift.

Thank you for telling me to go to counseling. I believe that if it weren't for you, I wouldn't have gone to the counseling center when I did. Your support through the process is something that I can't explain. The way you offered to drop what you were doing to come and be there for me through my first appointment is something I haven't seen from anyone. Ever.

Thank you for keeping me sane. You let me cry and complain to you more often than anyone else. Even though I say the same thing over and over again and cry over the same person, you still listen. You still offer advice.

Thank you for not giving up on me. Thank you for being my personal cheerleader and for making sure that I am okay at the end of every day.

There are not enough words for me to thank you for all you have done for me. There are no words to explain how thankful I am for you and all of the hours you spent helping me through this year. There are no words that could ever tell you how thankful I am.

Thank you for not being another douchey Tinder boy or another douchey fraternity boy. Thank you for being the best friend I have ever had. Truly, I love you.
