People at the gym

I go to the gym 6 times a week. I go for an average of an hour and a half each time. In this time I have started noticing certain types of people. Most of them are awful.

First group is the "gym mutants". These are people that seemingly only work on one part of there body. A guy with no chest, back or legs, but huge biceps. Or a man with a massive chest and comically small legs.  They aren't really getting in shape, they are just becoming weird looking. They aren't evening gaining any real strength, as muscles work as a team for any practical application.

Then we have the groups. For some reason you will see one very large man with several smaller men, the smaller men don't seem to be working out, rather they are just "cheering" for the larger man. They seem to do nothing other than get in the way. Is it some kind of gay thing? Or is it a case of alphas and betas? When in come in groups too. They seems to just come to talk while sitting on equipment without actually using it. For them I assume it was either this or Starbucks.

The plastic women. These are women who come to the gym to be looked at. They have been surgically enhanced to look as good as they can. Nothing about them has anything to do with going to gym. They are there doing the lightest workouts possible hoping people (mostly younger men) will compliment them and ask them what their secret is. It doesn't matter how perky your fake tits are if they are covered with sun damaged skin.

Fitness grandpa. He is old, he is in shape. Often sporting braces on joints, usually with some scars form orthopedic surgery. No hate for these guys. Good for them. At least they are there to work out.
