12 Different Gym Personalities You Encounter Every Day

The guy with Invisible Lat Syndrome (ILS) or the girl who spends her time taking selfies for an hour and then leaves? Pick your fighter.

Everyone goes to the gym and sees these kind of people. Whether they make you mad or not, this list definitely resonates with all gym-goers.

1. The Runner

This one I don't really understand. Why would you miserably put yourself through running 10 miles every day?

Weird flex but ok.

2. The Kid With Invisible Lat Syndrome

The guy with no lats but has his arms out at all times. Sheesh buddy.

3. The Selfie King

I guess you do you. Just stop taking up all the mirror space for when I'm "checking my form."

4. The Social Butterfly

We all have that one friend that will not shut up at the gym. I love you, but please just let me finish this set.

(I think we all know the real problem is that I thrive off of social environments, and I'm probably the one who won't shut up.)

5. The Boys who hit Arms EVERY DAY and still think they're BIG.

There are other muscle groups, I promise.

6. The Girls who hit Legs EVERY DAY.

I know you feel the pressure to be "thick," but here's a trick! Having a bigger back is going to allow for the illusion of a smaller waist, therefore making the contrast between your butt and waist seem even bigger.

Please listen to me ladies.

7. The kid with the Jug

Did you really need all that water for your quick arm session? Nope, no you did not.

8. The Grunter

This one kills me. I don't wear headphones when completing heavier compound lifts, and I always hear the kids with the dumbbells which are too heavy for them start grunting unnecessarily. Ugh, what great sounds.

9. The Beauty Queen

Wearing all that make up to the gym isn't good for your skin. Well, if you're actually going to sweat.

10. The Sponsored Gymshark Athlete

Let's be honest. Any real gym rat knows we all want to be Gymshark Athletes. One day right?

11. People who take the Rack for 3 Hours

Yes! My favorite is when people tell you they have 2 more sets but end up taking 30 minutes. Ever heard of a limited rest?

12. The Mirror King

We're all guilty of looking in the mirror once in awhile. These people are just... obsessive.

I'm sure everyone can relate to at least one of these. That's not a bad thing, just means we're judging a little bit. (It's funny).

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.

On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.

Launched by Iranian journalist Masih Alinejad in 2014, My Stealthy Freedom is a commendable campaign that shows women going against the strict hijab restrictions in Iran. This movement has recently gained a lot of momentum on their Facebook page and is currently even gaining support from tourists in Iran. Ms. Alinejad shares photos of men in hijabs and women inside Iran who have taken part in a moment of 'stealthy freedom' by removing their hijabs to the outside world.

Sinning in Las Vegas

Be careful what you do and post

Going to Las Vegas for the weekend is practically a sacramental right of passage in college. It’s so crucial to our early adulthood development that Snapchat even made a filter that says “Vegas for the Weekend.” Damn Snapchat, you really do get it.

National Coffee Day falls on September 29, a fact that I don't think I'll ever forget, even though I didn't even know it was a "holiday" until just recently. Maybe that's because my love for coffee is still a recent development, or maybe I just don't keep up enough with the times, but either way, I can't think of any better time to recount why we all probably love it so much.
