I think we need to come up with a list of gym/workout/fitness ones, like

SWLT--stupid weight loss technique
HOFDL--hanging on for deal life (on any cardio equipment, treadmills, elliptical)
NYRers--new years resolutioners
WWGRD--oldie but goodie, what would gym rats do

Any more?

GYMAG=gym bunnies
BBMD=gym gorillas

I'm guilty of being PWS, though. If someone does something creatively good or stupid, I stare.

Thong alert? I can't remember the last time I saw a thong at the gym! I'll admit I'm guilty of wearing them in the 80's, complete with headband and shiny lycra leotards. Let's get physical, physical, I wanna get physical...

LOL, okay, I don't know if it's the time of day where I work out (day time when it's mostly SAHM) or that I'm just getting old but I can't remember the last time I ran into PTTPIWS. But, I know it's common AND annoying. Remember Millcreek? She had the funniest stories about PTTPIWS, from now on known as pitpews.

Let's not forget:

PWHM--people who hog machines, otherwise known as equipment hogs
WWWS--women who won't sweat

LMAO!!! too funny!
At my gym I see all of this going on!LOL!
I work out early in the morning which seems to be the special time for the "Older Men" they really seem to like watching me so I try to do what I can in the ladies only section and venture into the co-ed area only if necessary.
I really don't get the GWMAG! "wtf" is right? is it a workout club or a dating club? really!?
I spent many years working out with BBMDs...they are actually okay. I was even married to one! (my first husband) They are just into themselves and usually like a girl partner to assist them with a few exercises. The guys I trained with always said that training with other BBMD's was just too competitive and then they couldn't focus on their own workouts.
The powerlifter guy I trained with was the best!....I would heft these 80 - 100 lb dumbbells for him and a lot of 45 lb plates for the olympic bar too...I got an extreme workout just doing that. He taught me a lot of good things though :)
