A few days into their workout, these newbies are introduced to a sad fact that exercising leads to body aches. And then, they begin to make their presence felt in the gym by cribbing and whining nonstop.
The sweaters are those who begin sweating the moment they touch a machine. They leave behind puddles of evidence of their presence wherever they work out. As far as hygiene is concerned, towels and deodorants are alien terms. If you're extra lucky, you'll even get to meet those who consider bathing and laundry optional too.
The competitors are synonymous with frenemies. They will compete over every little thing, whether it is running on the treadmill and burning x number of calories within a given time, or using heavy weights, maximum number of reps, weight-loss, etc. They are constantly trying to beat the other one's record.
But it doesn't stop there. If they're not talking on their cell phone, it will beep continuously. You can even spot them sitting idly on the machines, texting. Selfie addicts will flex in front of the mirror to click selfies and post them online.
Then, there are the gym residents. These guys take machine hogging to a whole new level, by hogging the gym. They are present at the gym all the time, be it morning, evening, or night. It's as if they never leave.
