I hate cardio at the gym. Why? Because it’s boring. To remedy this dire situation I make up nicknames for the people working out around me. Here are some current ones:
- Mr. Zumba. Mr. Zumba thinks it’s still 1985 and he was really, really into Richard Simmons. He kinda makes me giggle.
- Angry treadmill woman. Angry treadmill woman hates me and I’m not sure why. At first I thought, “of course she’s angry – the only thing she ever uses at the gym is the treadmill,” but then I saw her totally smile and have a conversation with someone the other day. When I say “hi” or do that half wave thing you do when you go on a machine next to someone, she always looks like I farted on her best yoga outfit.
- What’s in Your Wallet? I call him this because he looks like a viking from the Capital One commercials.
Ok, fess up. I know I’m not the only one who nicknames people. Who’s in your gym?
