The gym is like a microcosm — so colorful, vibrant and full of passionate people. When we step through the gym, we can see a mix of personalities; all having the same goal — bodybuilding.
Though people in the gym look different, but the common goal brings them together under one roof. However, there are different categories of people — some people just want to stay fit, while others want to have a muscular body.
Besides, there are others who are professionally linked to bodybuilding. Based on these goals, we can classify them on different groups of people in a gym. Check out the following different groups of people:
The unfailing men or Die Hard Men
They are called the Die Hard because you will find these folks in every gym; no matter what time you visit — they will be right there. They do not skip a single exercise because they have seen how the pros perform these exercises. In addition, they are well acquainted with every training principle.
They keep themselves abreast of everything related to bodybuilding by reading every single issue of health magazine. They are Die Hard because they love sports and want to be recognized in a crowd either by way of building great body curves or by wearing trendy clothes that could reveal their fanny pack.
Ambitious Men or The Try Hard
These are people with great determination and committed towards achieving their goal in terms of getting a good physique. They are very friendly in nature and want to make friends with those associated with sports.
Every day, they try harder and harder than others in a gym. Sometimes, they seem to be doing ridiculous, but they do so in the hope that someone big will speak to them. Try hard men get a descent body shape, as they literally do not stop in order to get huge.
Wander Men or The Gym Rat
They have enough free time to hit the gym. These guys have tried several things; made some mistakes in life and have learned from their mistakes in the end. They are like a yard bird and have multiple memberships at different gyms.
However, they choose gyms that are well-equipped to meet their needs. They are recognized by everyone in the gym and they have both good and bad stories about everyone in their gym.
One of the drawbacks of the gym rats is that they use the gym as a place to work and fun. However, their training programs get hampered several times due to their social obligations
Old Smarts or The Golden Oldies
The Golden Oldies are those who have got a good body shape. It simply gives a clue that they would certainly be a big man in their heyday. Although, they are old, but they still love to train their bodies for fitness and to be healthy. They are well behaved and willing to help anyone, anytime.
Golden Oldies believe in old school exercises such as Jefferson squats and prefer quality over quantity. They rule out the theory of food supplements and give examples of the past greats would take only whole milk and juicy steak.
However, don’t take golden oldies easy for their kindness. If anyone dares to misbehave or comment on them, they will set them straight.
Legitimate, professional bodybuilders are not seen in every gym. When there is a professional bodybuilder in a gym where you train at, everyone will know him and respect him. Professionals know everything about nutrition, training and food supplements.
They can talk for hours with regards to training, food supplements and other things related to bodybuilding. When they get into the gym, they hit hard and get out.
Professional bodybuilders have great fan followers and want to talk to them. Professionals never disappoint their fans and get some leisure time to talk to their fans.
The last category of people whom you can see in the gym includes everyone else. They come from different backgrounds including athletes, gym staff, Cardio freaks, spectators, the stretchers and youngsters, who have just started out, to name only a few.
All those who hit the gym, play a significant role in that microcosm. Without such a diverse group, a gym would not be a very happening place.
When all these diverse groups hit the gym, they work out in different ways based on their abilities and experiences. Well, you may not want to be in a gym with so many diverse groups. You would better prefer to be in a local gym, regardless of how you are personified.
