Not to brag, but we've been hitting the gym pretty hard lately. And even though we do try to—in the infamous words of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson—"FOCUS!", we can't help but occasionally be distracted by these horrible, horrible people you'll find in every gym.
1. The Person Who Hoards All the Good Equipment
Where you'll find ‘em: On the elliptical for three hours during peak rush hour. Or bouncing between three popular weight machines and leaving behind a water bottle or towel on each to mark her territory.
2. The Overly Sweaty Person Who Never Uses a Towel
Where you'll find ‘em: Using whichever machine you were going to use next and leaving a perfect sweat outline of his body on it when he leaves.
3. The Perfect Guy Who Makes You Feel Bad About Yourself
Where you'll find ‘em: Squatting an impossibly heavy amount of weight and making it look easy. Wearing a skimpy little tank top that shows off his chiseled six pack and perfect pecs. How do you even get biceps like that? Uh, not that you were staring or anything...
4. The Social Media Addict
Where you'll find ‘em: Unashamedly taking 50 selfies in the mirror between sets of sit-ups and tagging them on Instagram #workingonmyfitness #bikinibodready #thinspiration
5. The Creeper Always Checking You Out
Where you'll find ‘em: On the stationary bike right next to you, even though there are like, eight other ones open.
6. The Person Whose Stretches Make You Uncomfortable
Where you'll find ‘em: Using one of those big exercise balls, but definitely not in the way they were intended to be used.
7. The Gym Bunny
Where you'll find ‘em: On the elliptical in a color-coordinated outfit from Lululemon, with a full face of make-up and her hair did. Don't worry, she won't ruin it by breaking a sweat.
8. The Person in Jeans Running on the Treadmill
Where you'll find ‘em: On the treadmill, of course. But have they ever used one before?
9. All of the Old Naked Men in the Locker Room
Where you'll find ‘em: Everywhere. The steam room. The sauna. Loitering by the mirrors. Stretching in front of their locker. Sitting on the bench in front of your locker. Sitting on the same bench you were going to sit on, with their bare butt rubbing all over it.
Best to just skip the workout today...
