Seven people you see at the gym

If you go to the gym on a regular basis, you'll know exactly who I'm talking about; you might even be able to picture them.*

 1.  The bodybuilder: this guy has it all figured out.  He spends hours of every day at the gym and it shows: he's huge. His forearms are bigger than your head and he could probably pick you up with his pinkies if he wanted to. Do not get in his way, or he might decide to use you as the weight for his next exercise.

2.  The "cardio bunny": although typically a girl, a guy could fit this description as well. She (or he) will always be on either the treadmill, elliptical, StairMaster, or bike. This person stays far away from free weights and anything that might make them look "bulky" or "manly" and probably has on their cutest gym outfit.

3.  The "cute" couple: they're either attached at the hip and are working out side-by-side or are meeting up every five minutes to sneak in a little smooch. They don't care if anyone's watching; in fact, they hope you are just so you notice how cute they are that they can workout together.

4.  The walker: this is the person that drives at least 5-10 minutes away from home just to walk on the treadmill, and not just on an off-day. They're there, walking, every day. But hey, at least they're getting some exercise in, right?

5.  The admirable: this is the average Joe (or Jane) who just wants to get their life together and maybe lose a couple pounds (or their Freshman 15). They want to stay out of everyone's way, just do their own thing and get out.

6.  The totally in-shape person you hate: you know the type; super athletic, great bod, naturally skinny but not too skinny, with pure muscle definition. This is the person you want to just yell at to get the *bleep* out because they're making us all look bad. They're skipping from bench to bench, machine to machine, flying through their workout and you know they're just loving it.

7.  The one who's totally out of place: this is the person that has very clearly never been to a gym before. The people who show up on Awkward Gym Moments on Facebook or on iFunny. While there's nothing to make fun of, it's also kind of funny to watch them struggle...as long as they're not hurting themselves!

*I know this list is poking fun at people, but it's pure fun! I admire anyone who gets their butt to the gym, whether it's their first time or their 1000th. 

Who do you think I am? Who are you at the gym? Anyone to contribute?
