  1. i found this on some forum and this is sorta what i need since i am writing a paper for my english class on the different "groups" of people in an environment. i chose to do the gym and i need more stereotypes besides this obvious one... thanks in advance...


    The Frat Boy - Always lurking around the gym looking for the next available bench. Constantly on the prowl to get in a few sets (in between sets) for his bis.

    Most common sayings:
    - "Hey bro, mind spotting me while I throw up this 185 for sets of 20?"
    - "Work out legs? Nah man I get enough workout in my legs from walking."

    Strong points:
    None

    Weaknesses:
    - Surrounds himself with all the dumbbells in the gym ranging from 30-60 around his bench
    - Constant staring at other gymgoers when in between sets
    - Never re-racks the weights
    - Twig legs

    Me: Pisses off everyone in the gym because I hog all of the 45's and cover everything in chalk

    Strong Points: Bench

    Weaknesses: Deadlift


    :mamoru:




    actually,


    The Metro - Comes in to the gym wear nice clothing, changes into even nicer clothing in the locker room (also gels hair and takes a shower in cologne before working out). Proceeds to do two laps around the gym (and stinking the whole place up... making my bottle of ammonia smell better than his cologne), rudely interrupts all of the women working hard in the gym, does curls in the squat racks, and lifts up shirt while doing abs. Beware... the metro can seem like a Chatterbox or Hollister model, but these one's take it to a new level

    Strong Points - Can strip paint of walls with cologne

    Weak Points - Many

    :rofl: @ reverse power clean curls.

    Our gym has a monkey man:

    Has a thick big foot type coat of hair on his back, and sweats profusely. Never brings a towel, wears tiny tank tops. Leaves swirly sweat marks on everything he touches.

    strengths: no one fucks with his equipment in between sets

    weaknesses: probably still a virgin

    The Guy That is always at the gym:

    Utilizing the same outfit, EVERYTIME you see him... "Buddy" as most people know him as never really changes, though is always there. Can often be seen by the light end of the dumbell rack, or close to a smith machine, Buddy never really goes home.
    He has a decent build, the kinda build you can get genetically, he hangs out at the gym as if he is supposed to too because someone told him he was thick or built once before, now he feels its an obligation.

    Most common sayings:
    - "Hey Bro, long time no see" (You saw him yesterday, but cause he has been there all night, it feels like an eternity)
    - "You're looking jacked bro" (A retorical statement, he awaits your compliment on his never changing physique)

    Strong Points:
    -Has all the time in the world to be at the gym
    -Depsite never going home, he drives a nice car and his gym shoes though worn ALL the time, look like they just got out of the box

    Weaknesses:
    Despite being at the gym 24/7 buddy's lbm hasnt changed since some guy told him he was built and he started going to the gym.

    YES!!! :bowdown:

    At my gym I call him "Captain America", as he has a matching do-rag to go with those wicked flag pants.
