6 Gym Villains You Love to Hate

Recommended Posts

Torres

Some people just suck. You find sucky people everywhere, but the gym is a place where you can find some of the biggest ass-hats in society.

As a coping mechanism, I have this internal story in my head where I'm a superhero who must do battle with my arch nemesis in the gym. Below are some of the villainous rogues I see on a daily basis, and I'm sure you do too.

1 – Fake MMA Guy

This Karate Kid likes to show off his boxing skills with 15-pound dumbbells in a commercial gym. (Punching the air with dumbbells, by the way, actually decreases performance.) He's super into watching MMA and thinks he could totally kick anyone's ass if he wanted to.

He loves watching himself shadow box in the mirror while obliviously blocking the dumbbell rack. You can usually spot him wearing an Affliction shirt and large baggy shorts. He has a Japanese tattoo that he thinks means "warrior" on his shoulder, but actually translates to "douchebag."

Why He Sucks

If you're a real boxer, fighter, or martial artist, you're probably practicing your craft in an actual martial arts gym. While most people go to commercial gyms to get a workout, this jackass goes so he can feel like the baddest mother-effer in the place.

He wants you to see him acting tough... even though he's not facing any real opponent. He thinks he's impressing people with his amazing footwork and power as he bobs and weaves, but since the gym is busy, people have to practically bob and weave to get around him. Their skills are better than his.

Real fighters or those learning to defend themselves don't practice their fighting moves at Planet Fitness. Sorry, bro.

2 – Locker Room Selfie Guy

This is the guy who has spent his entire gym session prepping for his locker room photo shoot. Every exercise was aimed to maximize his chest and bicep pump, and he knows the best spot, with just the right amount of lighting, to highlight his rippling muscles. If you could only hear the sick EDM beat he's posing to, it would totally blow your nips off.

He can generally be spotted wearing a neon tank, flat brim cap, leggings, and Beats headphones. His physique is equipped with a large chest, a few bicep veins, a hint of a six pack, and a disproportionally small lower body.

Why He Sucks

Generally speaking, I don't find gym selfies to be annoying, but if you're snapping a picture of yourself in the locker room, and I'm stark-ass naked with my dong hanging out five feet away, that's another story.

Don't look annoyed at me for invading "your space" by using the locker room for its intended purposes. My bad if I'm blocking the light that you use to highlight your almost-six pack. Also, I don't trust your photo cropping skills, so you can delete the picture of my package from your phone anytime now.

3 – Weight-Belt Fashion Statement Guy

He goes to the gym not to work out, but to do a few curls, get a pump, and hit on chicks. He's always wearing a weight belt, but isn't planning to use it for any actual lifting. Instead, he's using it as a form of Spanx to hold in his gut. He wants you to be impressed by his awesome V-taper. Stare in awe at his wide shoulders, sick lats, and his tiny waist.

You might spot him sporting a stringer tank top that shows a tasteful amount of nipple (possibly plagued with gynocomastia), and he'll have a Bang energy drink nearby... or a gallon jug of water. He's throwing a rager of a party this Friday night at his bro Thad's house and every hot chick in the gym is invited.

Why He Sucks

Watching this person is like watching animals on Animal Planet try to find a mate. If you're female, you can bet your ass you'll be hit on by weight-belt guy. Not interested? Then he'll think you're stuck up and will tell all his bros about how he could totally have you, but you're just not hot enough.

4 – Half-Repping Noisy Guy

He wants you to know how strong he is. Be in awe as he uses 600 pounds for 10 full spasms (not reps) on the leg press, screaming like he's about to give birth after each one. He's amazed by his strength and doesn't care if he has shitty technique. The goal isn't really progressive overload and long-term results – it's impressing you with the number of plates he's got stacked together.

You'll know he's around because you'll hear the hardcore music blaring from his headphones, and he'll be singing out loud while slamming on 45-pound plates as part of his pre-hype lift. After all, the louder the noises, the stronger the person, right?

Why He Sucks

While the half-repping is pretty common place, the screaming and singing is super obnoxious. Sure, you may need to grunt every once in a while if you're lifting some heavy weight, but this overproduction is incredibly distracting. It's one thing to scream, grunt, and slam objects if you're in a powerlifting gym, but if you're at your local Snap Fitness you're just making an ass out of yourself.

 

5 – The Talker

This person will just not shut the hell up. He or she has an uncanny ability to sense when you're crunched for time and make a beeline toward you with a life story to share.

Maybe you just tried to say hello and keep walking, but he took your acknowledgement as a sign that you're interested in hearing about his workout and nutrition habits. He believes this information is riveting.

You'll know who this person is because instead of just greeting you and continuing with his or her workout, the talker will tell you everything you don't need to know: their goals, one rep max, injury history, experience level, opinions about controversial diets, and what they had (or didn't have) for breakfast.

Why He Sucks

When you have to get in, get your shit done and get out, he'll be there to interrupt. Most people are too polite to tell the talker to shut up, but their body language screams that they're trying to get away.

The talker doesn't care though and will continue to follow you, or talk louder as you begin to walk away. Even when you start your next set, intent on getting your workout in, the talker will keep blathering on.

 

6 – Girl Who Doesn't Want Attention (But Really Does)

This girl claims to get angry when guys stare at her (because all men are pigs), yet she shows up to the gym looking like Stripperella. She has a commandingly large ass and it looks like her butt just might eat her shorts... which is the extreme she's going for.

She's testing the limits of the little bit of fabric covering her body, and a wardrobe malfunction could actually go down at any minute. She can be found on the hip abduction/adduction machine (the bad girl machine), and will be faux-offended if you look in her general direction.

Why She Sucks

You know what's hard not to look at? Literally anything out of the ordinary. Car crashes get attention, crying babies get attention, people who are 7 feet tall get attention, big buff dudes get attention, and yes, girls wearing next to nothing will get attention as well.

I'm not trying to be a victim-blamer here, but don't hate all men when you get hit on by weight-belt guy and get invited to Thad's sweet party on Friday.

 

I found this article on Tnation and thought it would hit home with a lot of us.

Being in a room full of people everyones eyes are going to lock at some point . but I hate when people stare at me. I do look at chicks. But I'm pretty nonchalant about it. There's 10 other guys just straight staring at them I don't need to be one of them. I don't talk to anyone....ever. If someone says hi. I'm fine with that.

 

Veering off the subject it used to be totally cool just to work in with somebody out of the blue. Couple months back I asked to work in with a guy... it kind of caught him off guard. But he was totally cool. An older guy like my self and I adjusted and kept to his pace and his reps and his weight. Then he said he was done and walked away. Five minutes later he came over and said hey man come over here and try this. ....see ..thats cool. By the way I think his neck was 30" ...big guy

its bs having to go over and say anything to them when you need to use that machine.

What really drives me nuts is when you ask the guy and they give you a sideways look or say I'm not done yet. It's all I can do to not club these people over the head with a dumbbell. thankfully, now that I have the home gym going on I never have to deal with these douchebags again.

I feel more inspired/motivated at the gym, but when I see these Dick cheese people, it just makes me red like a tomato and like @pitshack said, I feel like clubbing them over the head !!!

There used to be this dude at my gym that was the " Shadow Boxer" that was what I called him. Well this dude would get in front of the mirrors and start shadow boxing. I used to get so annoyed. He would look around to see who would watch him, what a dick cheese. 

Now there is another version of him. A little dude that always walks around the gym looking more than training, and hes a combination of the " Fake MMA Guy " & " The Talker " . You wanna talk about a real Dick Cheese , Thats him.

Mines is having a workout partner that constantly stares at himself in the mirror and flexing while he's supposed to be spotting... Also, one that has the gift of gab and expects you to answer as you're lifting, especially in the middle of squats... 🤣🤣🤣🤦‍♂️...  Characters and a half... I've found it much better to ask a random person for a spot...

Shadow boxing guy gets pretty annoying as well, but I've learned to laugh in the moment at all of this...

The Stinker 

Every gym has one. A guy that stinks and just leaves a green cloud everywhere he goes.

I'm sometimes the guy who gets too stoned before the work out and spends too much time on the stretch mat. But then I get it together and get after it.
