Revealed: Which Gym-Goer Are You?
The gym is a congregation of people of all shapes and sizes – and where the biggest workout is often a battle of the egos.
But whether you’re a selfie-obsessive or just a clueless newbie, you’re welcome at Fallowfield’s newest fitness space, aptly named ‘The Gym’, which opened March 27.
We’ve bagged a special £12.99pm discount for FRESHR app users, plus we’re giving away THREE free memberships in our competition. Read on for deets.
As the go-to gym for students in Manchester, it’s only right we consider who your new gym buddies are likely to be. Which gym-goer are you?
You’ll see these chaps sweating away in their muscle-tight Gymshark vests and OBEY snapbacks regularly- but there’s one thing you’re likely to notice; they only ever train their arms. And with their golden fake tan, they kind of look like an upside-down Dorito. But that’s okay, when they’re bopping about Deansgate Locks with a Voddy Redbull in hand, their malnourished legs are nowhere to be seen.
The polar opposite to the previous, perhaps new to the gym and is starting to get slightly concerned about the stressful uni lifestyle. The Amateur hasn’t quite worked out what they want to get out of the gym, so they skip from machine-to-machine trying to find what they like; a bit of cardio, legs, chest, then most likely get bored and leave after 20 minutes. Fear not, The Gym’s PTs are your remedy.
The Snap-happy Chappy
The gym’s equivalent to a pigeon on the streets – always in your way and a real eye sore, but what do they actually do? A couple of sets to get their blood flowing and muscles popping and then the photoshoot starts, slap it on Insta with a Black & White filter, a philosophical caption and several hashtags – job done. Of course, the session wouldn’t be finished without a drink out of a protein shaker; protein shakes, water, squash, beer, milk, EVERYTHING. Not just in the gym either; at home, in lectures, at pre drinks, EVERYWHERE.
The I’m Alright Jack
Not here to improve fitness or shape, this gym-goer will simply visit to tell their mates that they’ve been to the gym to justify going home and eating a full packet of bourbons whilst watching The Chase. Usually found on the leg press or leg curl machines with their phone in hand, doing a quick set every five minutes. Not bothered about the people waiting, as long as they’re burning their 30 calories.
The Andrea Pirlo or Serena Williams of the gym, wearing old rags and has full respect from everyone in the gaff. No messing about, no pictures, no hyped-up gear, this is serious stuff. Rock up, graft, leave. The routine has been tried, tested and honed for years.
