For most people, a gym is a place where they come to sweat profoundly and shed a few extra pounds. It's a place filled with men and women determined to get in shape and you might think that the vibe there is all sporty and serious, but that's where you'd be wrong.
It's incredible how much weird stuff happens at the gym – we kid you not! People wear their weirdest clothes, some of them put on crazy shoes and heels, and sometimes there are animals involved.
There are also numerous cases of people coming to the gym to do some other stuff like reading, drinking coffee, or eating ice-cream. It's like a different world in there! Take a look at these wow-worthy gym moments and they’ll definitely make your day better.
38. Going on a Date… to the Gym?
Women like to look good and there’s nothing wrong with getting dressed up for a night out or a date with a boyfriend, but something different is happening in this picture.
The lady in a pink dress and gorgeous heels surely looks stunning, but we can’t but ask ourselves why would she hit the gym dressed like that? Was she stood up by her date and decided to let off steam in a gym? Or did she have some spare time before going out with her friends and thought it would be nice to do some weights?
So many questions that no one can answer… But one thing we know for sure – you don't see a woman dressed like that in a gym every day! So savour this moment.
37. What are You Looking at?
Ah, ladies at the gym are always so remarkable, aren’t they? Even if she’s just training for a few minutes using a simple exercise machine, somehow she just draws lots of attention. And don’t get us wrong, both men and women like to do a little staring at the gym!
There’s just something very cool about people working out and doing their best to get into shape. Well, this dude was definitely distracted by a gorgeous woman doing her workout session. So much so, that he forgot all about the man he was supposed to look after!
We really hope that man wasn’t crushed by the heavy weights while the other guy was checking on a gorgeous woman doing some exercises. Well, we can’t really blame him!
36. What's Going on There?
You won't surprise anyone with a fit gym selfie these days - everyone is taking them! Whether it's a trainer, a fitness pro, or just a beginner, it seems that no one can resist the temptation of those huge mirrors.
Just like many people before her and many people that would do this after her, this gorgeous woman decided to snap a post-workout gym selfie, but she managed to capture something else as well.
What on Earth is the other woman doing there in the back with one shoe in her hand? Is she washing it? We have no idea what's going on there, but this selfie looks both ridiculous and mysterious at the same time.
35. Be Careful with Mirrors
And back to gym selfies once again - they just keep on giving! And who are we to ignore them? This woman was just making another selfie to share her workout mood with everyone, but she missed one important detail.
Can you already see it? Mirrors can be so dangerous when we aren't watching closely what exactly they are reflecting. Not only did this woman photograph her face, but also her back!
And that's when the 'oops' moment happened. We sincerely hope she didn't go to the gym wearing these pants!
34. Oops, That’s Not Chocolate!
This little boy’s face says it all… The despair is almost palpable! It was the most wicked deception grown-ups have ever come up with. What looked like a dream come true turned out to be a nightmare for this little guy.
Did you ever dream to get covered in chocolate from head to toe when you were a kid? We’ve all had some kind of chocolate fantasy when we were little, but we never had the chance to make it come true.
This boy thought it was his lucky day! So, when he saw some guys all covered in chocolate he ran to them and tasted it… Not only running into some guy’s thigh was far from fun, but the brown substance was no chocolate at all! The biggest lie ever.
33. Inspiration for Everyone
Sometimes we go to the gym and we feel totally lost. What is the purpose of all this? Can we really build the body of our dreams or it's just another way to punish ourselves for not being successful in life?
Well, if you've ever felt discouraged at the gym, we get you, it doesn't feel good. That's when you start looking around at other people trying to figure out whether it's all worth it or not.
It's people like this who encourage us the most! Just looking at this fit smiling woman with great abs makes you want to head to the gym and start working out immediately. Who knows, maybe soon you'll become an inspiration for someone, too?
32. It’s Time to Chill
Did you ever go to the gym just to chill? No? Well, this guy must know something we don’t because he looks like the most relaxed person in the world.
Usually, people come to the gym to sweat and train like crazy, but this doesn’t mean you can’t take a break here and there and enjoy your favourite book. Yes, it does look a bit weird and people would probably stare at you, but who cares? You do you.
When there aren’t too many people in the gym it can actually be quite a serene place if you go there early in the morning or late in the evening. So maybe this guy has a point? We won’t know until we try it ourselves.
31. The Perfect Dress Code
Dressing for a workout can be tricky in many ways. You need to feel comfy, but you also want to look good.
Most of the time people choose something functional without thinking if it’s trendy or not. Still, when it comes to women, things may take on a different turn.
This woman definitely cares about the impact she makes in a gym. Her outfit looks quite spectacular, to say the least.
30. That’s Not Quite How You Do It
First-timers know that going to the gym can be a very intimidating experience. There are so many machines there and you just feel like everyone is staring right at you!
Quickly, you decide to jump on the first equipment at hand and just start doing anything to avoid the awkward moment. And yet… You end up creating an even more embarrassing situation!
This woman was definitely trying to show that she knows what she’s doing, but she failed miserably. You rarely see something like this in the gym!
29. Is He for Real?
We mean… Wow! We had no idea you could even pack so much weight on this gym equipment, but it seems the only limit is your imagination! That and your body’s ability to pull, push, and lift weights.
This guy seems to be quite chill sitting in the chair despite what looks like a ton of weights pressing down on him. Is he even human? The man on the left is staring at him in surprise and we can clearly see why. This dude is unbelievable!
Of course, we don’t know for how long he managed to exercise like this – it could be a few minutes or just a few seconds! He could even be doing it just for an Instagram photo, which happens quite often with gym enthusiasts. Well, this dude does look cool in this pic, we have to give him that.
28. The #1 Gym Fan
Have you met those gym fanatics that wouldn’t miss their workout session no matter what? Whether it’s snowing outside, raining, or the scorching sun is burning everything to the crisp, they would still pack their bag and rush to the gym.
We certainly have seen a few people like that and, believe us, they are really impressive. Nothing would stop them from going to their favourite gym! It seems that this guy (and the one in the back) is one of those gym fanatics.
Would you train in a gym that is full of water? We probably wouldn’t, but this man seems to be on cloud nine! And if he gets hot he can immediately freshen up with all that water splashing on the ground. Kind of neat, don’t you think?
27. She Seems to be Doing Fine
Somehow, we've never seen dudes keeping other dudes 'safe' during workout. So what's going on here with this lovely lady doing her heavy lifting? Some trainer clearly decided she needed help...
We aren't sure if that's the usual practice with people doing lifts, but we rarely see this happening at the gym, especially when guy are doing weight lifting.
Otherwise, this woman seems to be doing just fine. She's in such a great shape! These weights seem to be too heavy for an ordinary human so she must have been training for quite some time now.
26. Balancing Like a Pro
Sometimes you come to the gym and you just feel like trying something new instead of the old boring workout machines. Did you ever get that feeling? No?
Well, this guy was definitely feeling adventurous with his workout routine when he decided to do this pose while lifting some heavyweights.
We aren’t even sure how he’s doing it – he should have fallen already, but he keeps on standing! It takes some mad balancing skills to perform this, that’s for sure.
25. A Photo She'll Hate
Taking photos during workout is definitely one of the things people enjoy doing at the gym. And when you can't take a photo of yourself you usually ask someone else to take a pic of you working out.
Well, it seems that whoever took the photo of this woman at the gym will regret it soon. This is too unflattering! We just really hope it wasn't her boyfriend behind the camera.
Naturally, as soon as this photo went online it instantly became a hit. It seems that the weirder you look on the photo, the more people like it!
24. Dog Yoga
And we mean it quite literally – dogs love doing yoga even more than humans! Of course, they have their own version of yoga asanas, but can you really blame them? They are dogs, after all.
This cute doggy probably thought his owner was doing too much training, so he decided to help in the best way possible – by jumping on the girl’s back! The pup seems quite comfortable and the girl, for better or worse, won’t be doing any movements any time soon.
It doesn’t look like the puppy is planning to go anywhere in the nearest future, so the woman might as well have a nap. This may be the most relaxed yoga session ever!
23. The Evil Twin
This gym photo seemed perfectly normal at first and we could have easily dismissed it as just another girlie selfie, but then a peculiar detail emerged. Can you already see it? This photo definitely needs a double take!
While this girl was posing for her regular gym selfie, something weird was happening in the background. Can you see another girl who looks exactly like the one in the front? They seem so alike, almost like twin sisters!
Of course, they are dressed differently, so there's no doubt there are two girls in the photo, but their resemblance is uncanny! It looks like a reflection, but then you spot the little details that make the second girl different… It's quite mind-bending, to say the least!
22. Batman to the Rescue
Did you ever wonder how superheroes get ready for their daily jobs that require saving the world, catching some criminals, and rescuing a few damsels in distress while they're at it? No? Well, neither did we, but apparently, they need to train just as much as other men and women.
Batman here is hitting the treadmill in his full attire looking like he just went from catching bad guys straight to the gym. Seeing him wear all this stuff while running does raise a question – doesn’t he feel hot in it?
We realize being a superhero without actual superpowers is tough, but it would have been better for him to hit his personal gym and leave all the extra stuff hanging in the closet. Well, he may also be preparing to run a marathon in full disguise - that would explain the masked workout at the gym.
21. Worst Dad of the Year
Okay, we realize that once you start working out it can be hard to stop. You just somehow feel compelled to do it all the time!
Getting hooked on workout is definitely not the worst thing in the world, but this dad has taken things a little bit too far. He needed to babysit his kid, but he decided to combine the two and started doing some workout with the baby still hanging in a sling!
This is dangerous and reckless on so many levels! We just hope that someone explained this man that this is not the proper way to treat a baby. Don't you ever try this yourself, guys and girls!
20. The Cinderella Workout
Even Disney princesses find time to do some exercises, so what’s your excuse? But seriously, look at this gorgeous Cinderella rocking a cute blue outfit while she’s performing some aerobics moves. She looks amazing!
You might have noticed that it’s not exactly a gym photo, but who are we to judge a Disney princess? She exercises wherever she wants and whenever she finds time to do it. Maybe the life of a princess is more complicated than we thought?
We kind of get it why she wouldn’t want to hit the gym – people would probably stare at her and maybe even ask for autographs! The life of a celebrity is tough like that.
19. Here’s How You Do It, Human
If you're familiar with yoga and yogic asanas (or poses) you've probably heard about the Upward Dog pose. And if you haven't – here is a striking example of how one should perform it! Yes, this is exactly what it looks like and we can't but wonder how on Earth this cute dog managed to do it.
The dog’s posture is amazing, and look at those hinder paws! This pup is too cute to be real. Did he learn this pose watching his owner do yoga or did it come naturally to him? It is called the Upward Dog for a reason, you know.
We don’t know the story behind this photo, but one thing we can tell for sure – it’s the cutes dog yoga we’ve ever seen! And the pup does look like he knows what he’s doing. Maybe he can become a yoga teacher in the future?
18. Hitting the Gym When You’re 99
Can you believe this woman? She’s 99 years old and she still goes to the gym! But never mind that - she’s 99, and she still looks so good! We wouldn’t give her more than 70 years. Seriously, this granny is a tough cookie.
The lady received a martini at the gym as a small gift to celebrate her birthday. It was very nice of gym workers to do that for her. Well, even she decided to show up at the gym and just randomly have a drink there, it would have been cool as well.
Because when you’re 99 you can do whatever you want. There are not many perks in getting old, but this is definitely one of them.
17. Trying Way Too Hard
This girl might fool some gym newbies, but we can see right through her. She’s not working out at all! We get it, going to a gym is cool and taking a tough selfie is a must for most people. Still, she could have put a little more effort into making this photo look more believable.
Did you ever see the faces of people exercising? They are far from cute and lovely because of the effort it takes to work with weights and other machines.
This girl, on the other hand, has a very cute expression like she’s about to laugh out loud. You don’t get all giggly while you sweat, that’s for sure. Still, she can start by faking it and then she might get the inspiration to actually exercise using those machines!
16. Birds Also Need Exercise
We don’t know about all the birds, but this little parrot certainly likes to get a little bit sweaty in a gym along with his owner. He has his very own training stick and seems quite enthusiastic about the whole process.
It seems that taking pets to the gym is quite a big trend these days. People take their pups, birds, and even cats to train with them. Although, cats are probably too lazy to exercise and would just lie and sleep somewhere in the corner.
This bird, on the other hand, seems super excited to be in the gym and exercise along with everyone else. Will it become stronger, we wonder? Like a parrot version of Schwarzenegger with strong wings and even stronger legs.
15. Awkward Gymnastics
These girls look happy to be in the gym and seem to have enough energy to exercise for hours in a row. Still, looking at this image, we can’t but wonder if the movements they are doing are actually safe.
The girl that is doing push-ups while hanging in the air is a real pro and could probably do a dozen of them. Her friend, on the other hand, seems to be pretty uncomfortable with the whole situation.
Why do we have a feeling that something bad is about to happen? The girl who is keeping her friend up in the air seems kind of shaky. She might actually drop the girl! We hope no one got hurt in the end.
14. High Heels vs. Sneakers
We get it, high heels look beautiful and some women can wear them literally anywhere. But is it really that comfy wearing heels to the gym? A place where people get all sweaty and smelly, trying to build the bodies of their dreams.
Is this woman trying to impress someone? In that case, well done, because it’s impossible to ignore such an outfit when you come to the gym.
We have to applaud her, though, because wearing high heels is a workout in itself! If she's doing exercises wearing pumps, well, it's a stunt worthy of a Wonder Woman.
13. The Show Must Go On
Just when we thought we’ve seen everything we stumbled upon this crazy photo. Can you believe what’s going on in the picture? A whole music band is hitting the gym like it’s the most common thing ever!
Just look at them casually exercising on a treadmill in full attire with huge musical instruments in their hands. We bet they were even playing loudly for everyone to hear! And look at the guy on the left, the only one who’s not wearing a suit – he just keeps on doing his run like nothing special is going on.
This is definitely one of the weirdest things that have ever happened in a gym. We just wish we were there to witness this!
12. Break the System
People have different reasons for hitting the gym – some want to shed all those extra pounds, while others want to build a more stunning body. Either way, most people come there to work out and sweat like crazy.
But not this woman! Instead of running on the treadmill, she decided to ride on it. This is kind of cool if you want out opinion, but it totally contradicts the whole purpose of a treadmill. You know, the one that you have to be running using your legs.
We have to give it to her, though, the idea to ride a treadmill like this is kind of genius. It’s also a good way to train your balance. Still, we wouldn’t recommend doing this yourself – just use your legs and run like normal people.
11. The Best Workout Partner
Is it a good idea to take your dog to the gym with you? We believe there is no right or wrong answer to that as all pups are different. Still, we imagine that dogs, who generally like to be with their owners wherever they go, would be on cloud nine to spend a few extra hours with them at a gym.
Wouldn’t pets get bored hanging out there all by themselves, while men and women are doing their workouts? Well, that could probably happen, but only if your dog is all alone in there.
This woman found a perfect solution – she took her pet to the gym and found a buddy for him to play with! It doesn’t seem that her workout is going too well, but the dogs seem to be having fun.
While most people can exercise on their own in the gym, there are also those that require the help of a trainer. You might not need a pro trainer telling you how many push-ups to do and how many laps you should run on a treadmill, but he'll be useful when you're about to try a machine you've never seen before.
This poor woman was definitely not expecting this to happen… That strap should be in some other place, that’s for sure!
It’s generally a good idea to ask around before trying equipment you’re not familiar with. There’s no shame in asking for help – this simple act will save you from moments like this!
9. Hello From the 80s
Okay, we've seen girls rocking high heels and pumps, but what we haven't seen yet is a fashion show reminiscent of the 80s. Can you believe these girls? They look like they stepped out of the 80s sports fashion magazine!
Well, judging by the photo they had fun not only working out but also posing and taking pictures. If we were there, we'd ask for a group photo as well!
If you’re feeling a bit down going to the gym you can also turn it into a fun fashion event. It will definitely lift your spirits! It’s also a good way to make some new friends.
8. The Stormtrooper Attack
Having seen so many crazy outfits in the gym you probably think that nothing will impress you… But what about this workout moment? An actual Star Wars stormtrooper is in the gym!
He doesn’t seem to be working out, so maybe he’s there to intimidate the woman who’s doing some exercises? If we were there, we would probably just run away screaming.
This woman, on the other hand, continues doing her workout like nothing weird is going on. Does she even see the stormtrooper? She might be so into her workout that she doesn’t notice what’s going on around her. She’ll be really surprised afterwards, that’s for sure!
7. Get Ripped or Go Home
Wow, can you believe this woman? It wouldn’t really be surprising to see a ripped guy holding his equally ripped girlfriend on his shoulders, but seeing the woman do it is something else entirely.
We can’t even start to imagine how many hours (or years?) of training it takes to become so strong that you can hold this huge muscular guy like he weighs nothing at all. Her training regimen must be fierce!
And look at this guy’s legs! His one leg seems thicker than her whole upper body. Kudos to this fit man for training so hard and rocking such a chiseled body.
6. Double Combo
Are we seeing double or are there actually two identical-looking beautiful women on this photo? Yes, they are twins, but not all twins look so much alike and decide to rock the same look, wear the same outfit, and go to the same gym all at once!
They also seem to be equally fit, so they must have been doing it for more than just a few months.
They look striking and we hope some sports magazine will notice them and offer to do a photoshoot! Just seeing these two gorgeous ladies working out in the gym is a huge inspiration for everyone.
5. When You Forgot Your Sneakers at Home
It’s not the first lady on our list who is wearing pumps to the gym, but we still get amazed when we see these fashion choices. Did she forget her training sneakers at home? Or was it a conscious decision?
Whether she put them on to attract some attention or simply to click a fun photo, we must admit she’s doing a great job exercising in those high heels. It’s a real art and not all women can even walk in them, let alone perform some kind of workout.
We should also applaud the shoemakers that created these pumps because usually they aren’t meant to hold so much extra weight. Are they made of steel or what?
4. The Irresistible Punching Bag
This must be one very special punching bag as it got so much attention from two gorgeous gym-goers. Punching bags are named like that for a reason, you know, so most of the time they just get kicked, punched, and beaten in various ways.
This punching bag, on the other hand, got some special treatment from two beautiful ladies. It must have been the best day of its life! If punching bags could think and feel, of course.
Anyway, we’re happy that this punching bag received some love instead of kicks and punches. We’re definitely moving towards a better future, people!
3. What Happens at the Gym, Stays at the Gym
Out of all the weird things we’ve seen happening at the gym, this one is definitely among the most unusual ones. Why on Earth would a girl dressed in a prom gown be going to the gym? Did she have a rough prom experience? And why is she cleaning the mat?
So many questions and no back story that would satisfy our curiosity. It might have been just a weird idea for a gym-inspired photo session.
Either way, she doesn’t look too happy being there all dressed up and doing God knows what among all those sports machines. We just hope her prom night was alright!
2. The Ultimate Boredom
Did you ever feel bored at the gym? Like that time when you didn’t really want to go there but still decided to give it a try, although your body wasn’t really into it. Yeah, we’ve all had days like that.
These two dogs look bored out of their wits. It’s as if their big sad eyes are asking us why were they dragged here and why is no one paying attention to them.
Poor pups, we really have no idea why would anyone want to take their dogs to the gym and then leave them hanging out there all sad and lonely. We just hope this boredom didn’t last for long!
1. We Just Come Here for Selfies
If you’ve been to the gym at least once you know that all kinds of people attend it. Some go there solely to work out, while others go there to meet new people and make workout buddies so it’s more fun to exercise together.
Then there are those people who don’t care as much about exercising. All they think about is how to make a cool selfie and let everyone on Instagram know that they’ve been to the gym.
We don’t really know if that’s the case with these girls because they do look quite fit, after all. But it’s not a secret that gyms are full of selfie-lovers who stop every now and then to take shots of themselves to see if their tummy got flatter or not.
Exercising in Style
Some people are so worried about how they look that they simply can't go out without putting on makeup or those stylish boots that look like they should be worn by a movie star.
Well, we can't blame people for wanting to look their best, but is gym really the place to show off your unique style? Unless, of course, it's a sports style, then people wouldn't mind it so much.
These cowboy boots seem so out of place that it hurts us to even look at them! It's not that those are bad boots, on the contrary, they look quite cool, but exercising in them seems like such a waste. It's just not comfortable!
The Kind of Workout All Men Dream About
We are quite stunned not only by the sheer power of this guy who can lift two gorgeous women simultaneously, but also by the fact that such an idea came to his mind at all.
It's definitely not something we would suggest trying at home with your loved ones, but weightlifting women does look quite impressive. That's definitely a profile photo that will make people stop and stare for a while.
It's not something we see people do every day, so kudos to this guy for a truly original idea. Maybe more guys will be inspired to try this trick now as well!
The Power Couple
It's not every day we see couples exercising at the gym together, but when we do -it's always a sight for sore eyes!
Exercising with a partner is a fun way to make your workout more versatile and, well, bring some joy to all the people around you. We don't think these two intended to become everyone's entertainment at the gym, but that's exactly what happened!
We aren't exactly sure whether this type of exercise is a good workout, but at least it looks like they're having fun together. And that must count for something, right?
Not Your Average Date
What do most people do when they go on dates? They probably go to a café, grab some lunch together, maybe watch a movie or go for a stroll in the park.
What most people definitely don't do on dates is couple powerlifting! At least, we haven't seen a lot of couples like this, but that doesn't mean they don't exist.
These two are a vivid example of how people can share a similar lifestyle and be happy together while doing sports. It's a great motivation to keep on going even when you're feeling a bit lazy and sluggish - there's always someone beside you who will inspire you to go on.
Wait a Minute...
You won't surprise anyone with a boxing session these days, but boxing out in the open under the sky? Now we are wondering how on Earth is that punching bag hanging there in the middle of nowhere?
Okay, we have a few suggestions - this is either a good case of Photoshop magic, or someone went to great lengths to create this shot and used some extra equipment to hang that punching bag there.
Well, either way, it looks quite impressive! That's definitely a photo we haven't seen before and that's something not many pics can boast these days. It's just so fun to look at!
Just When You Think You've Seen It All
At first glance this seems like an ordinary situation you'd expect to see in the gym, although, the guy does seem to be doing some impressive exercises, but that's not what makes this shot so valuable.
Can you see what's going on in the back? It's so subtle, but when you notice the T-Rex in the back this picture becomes worth a thousand words. It's just so surreal!
The people in the gym seem quite unimpressed by what's happening - maybe it's a regular occurrence? If only this guy knew what was going on behind his back!
When You Lack Proper Motivation
Taking food to the gym is one of the worst ideas ever. It just distracts you from doing a proper workout, making exercising less fun than it could be.
Still, in some cases, we admit food can be a good motivation. Not on a regular basis, of course, but as a reward - why not? Buying yourself something yummy after a week of hardcore workouts isn't all that bad.
Although, we believe this guy has taken things a little bit too far. It's one thing to be motivated by food, and it's an entirely different thing to start eating while you're exercising!
Gym Style 101
And we're back to gym fashion once again. Do you think there's such a thing as a fashion faux pas when it comes to gym clothes? We used to think that the rules for gym style are pretty simple - as long as it's airy and you're comfortable, you can wear pretty much anything you want.
Still, looking at this guy, we have to wonder whether there should be some special gym style rules. We don't think he looks bad, but those chicken feet are definitely distracting!
Well, if he wanted to get some attention from the people around he definitely succeeded. It's hard not to stare at those hilarious (and a little bit creepy) feet.
That's How a Pen Feels After Typing for Years
If you're one of those people who prefers typing and uses it for almost everything, then you know just how weird and awkward it feels when you suddenly need to write something and take a pen into your hand.
Yes, this picture sums it up pretty well! Of course, this man probably had a different reason to strike this drawing pose with exercising gear, but we love this photo nonetheless.
Just the fact that he can hold these weights in this way is beyond impressive! He's even smiling while doing so, what a guy.
We've All Felt Like This
There are good gym days when you're full of energy and you feel like you can exercise on each and every machine and then still be able to do a lengthy cardio run.
But then there are other days when your hands feel like sausages and it hurts to even think about lifting weights. That's when we turn into this duck and just lie there peacefully trying to get ourselves together and make at least a few moves.
Seriously, though, we have no idea how this duck ended up at the gym. Those wings aren't meant for exercising!
I've Got Better Things to Do
Most people go to the gym to sweat and do some exercises, but that's definitely not the case here. Maybe this woman just needed a peaceful place to nap?
But then why not just go and enjoy the comfort of your home? Ah, so many questions and so little answers.
Well, we hope she enjoyed the nap and didn't spoil the workout motivation for the people around. We must agree that machine does look pretty comfortable to rest on. Not a bad choice for a napping spot at all!
