A gym is quite a strange place. Some people go there to strictly workout and get out of there as quickly as they can with as little interaction as possible. Others go to scope out the potential love interests and try to pick up an unexpected date for Friday night.

Regardless of what you're there for, everyone is sweating, wearing skin-tight clothing, and displaying their strength all while grunting and panting. It's bound to be a place of awkward energy and confused hormones.

Between desperately wishing your elliptical neighbor would wear some deodorant or just feeling like a total loser with your 2lb weights, the gym is the perfect ground for awkward encounters.

You should be proud of yourself for putting on your brave shoes, banishing your tendency to stay in bed to binge watch the new season of Shameless, and actually making it to the gym to push it, even if you do look like a tool the entire time. Just kidding, you're doing great kid. Keep it up!
