Hopefully, this will bring the monkey out of hiding.
Many moons ago, the Monkey created a T-Dictionary that was added to in a thread about all the wonderful people we see in gyms and the such. I’ve decided to take it upon myself to continue the dictionary and hopefully add to it after an infuriating day at the gym. Without further ado…
The Lounge Lizard - The “personal trainer” who sits on the leg curl machine (or whatever piece of equipment appears not to be in use) while their client is on the leg extension machine. Known to offer encouragement such as “Come on” and “One more”. Also very adept at counting to 10…and also couting down from 10. “Get out of the way Lounge Lizard I’m trying to use that bench.”
Captain Bench Press - The gym member who wears a wife beater and belt while doing 4 sets of bench press in the time it takes me to complete my whole NB3 workout. “Yeah, Captain Bench Press kept giving me the stink face because my ass was in his face while I did the Waterbury Walks.”
Swingline - adj. When some annoying gym member (possibly on a cell phone) causes you to lose concentration on heavy squats and you get stapled to the floor. “The captain got a call and yelled when I started my squats. I got Swinglined to the floor and I thought about taking him out.”
Feel free to add to the dictionary, I know there’s some good ones out there.
