The Five Most Annoying People You'll See at The Gym

Let the gym frequenters be warned: 

Your sacred place is about to be invaded by a bunch of newbies that decided that they would start working out as part of their New Year's resolution. You'll just need to be a little more patient as the gym is about to be the place to be after January 1st. 

Of course, we were all once a gym newbie and we should welcome these people with open arms and help them if we can

While going to the gym gives me the boost I sometimes need, the people I encounter make me want to scream.

These people are clueless about proper gym etiquette. If you're about to head to the gym for 2018, you should read this:

1. The Texter
Yes, I see this all the time. Someone is just sitting on one of the machines having an extended text conversation with SOMEONE. Meanwhile, they are tying up that machine. Which brings me to the next annoying person...

2. The Machine Hog
Some gyms have policies about how long you spend on one machine. But some don't have that policy. You should still be mindful of others and share the equipment.

3. The Selfie Snapper 
I am convinced that some people just go to the gym to snap a few selfies. It seems that if you don't take a workout selfie than your workout clearly never happened. Just stop!

4. The Person Who Doesn't Wipe
See all those spray bottles and paper towel dispensers all over the gym? Those are so you can clean your sweaty ass marks off the bike or whatever other equipment you used.

5. The show-off/Lound grunter
I feel like these two are the same person. Just don't. 

Which type of person annoys you at the gym? Let us know.

Good luck in 2018 to gym-goers!
