Gym Personas – Which One Are You?

You’re at the gym and struggling to make it through your workout. Make the minutes go by faster by doing a little people watching. Keep an eye out for the “Gym Mom.” She’s dropped the kids at the club, totes a massive gym bag (hers and the tykes’ stuff, too) and has her favorite spot already secured in class. “Jack the Ripped” is bench-pressing loudly while “Mr. Personal Trainer” and his muscle shirt are getting plenty of use out of each machine on the floor. Don’t be surprised if he offers you a few tips.

Be impressed with the guy with the ear buds, multi-tasking while on the treadmill, getting business taken care of. Be aware of the gal with the phone in hand snapping her fifth selfie of herself hard at work — you don’t want to end up in the background dripping sweat in contrast to her perfectly coordinated makeup and ‘do. And, of course, there’s always that individual so clearly comfortable in her skin, baring her midriff and rocking the perfectly coordinated outfit.

For more information on how to identify the gym goers you can expect to see – or to figure out which of these categories you fall into – check out the descriptions on the following infographic.

I am making another go with getting fit.  I have said this for a while now, but this time, I’m going to do it.  For reals. 

I really don’t know why it’s taking me sooo ling to get back into it.  I can use the excuse that it’s been cold outside, which it has.  Or I can use the excuse that I was pretty sick for a while, which I was.  Well, that’s actually a really good excuse, now, isn’t it?  But the real thing is, I’ve just been a slacker.
