WATCH: Offensive Straight Dudes Want To Know, “Which Gym Stereotype Are You?”

Are you trying to get in shape but afraid of what judging eyes at the gym will think of you? Here’s something that’ll really motivate you to get out of bed and into the gym: A bunch of guys who made a video making fun of everyone else at the gym!

Presumably to take out unwarranted frustration at what gym buffs call the “New Years Resolution People,” the hilarious dudes at Dude Perfect have mashed a bunch of broad stereotypes into one video that covers just about every type of person you may encounter at the gym. There’s a few you may know (The Screamer, The Selfie Guy, The Mirror Magnet) a few you’ve never seen (The Sauna Suit Guy?) and a few that are downright rude (No Idea What I’m Doing Guy, The Yoga Guy, The Sweaty Guy). “Which one are you?”, they ask.

Too bad they didn’t include Douchebag Making Fun Of People Exercising Instead Of Working Out Guy. I saw about 15 of them before the video was halfway over.

    Not funny at all. But also not offensive at all.

  • Stache1

    I can’t believe that was all done to sell their product (Dude Perfect). As far as comedy goes they better keep their day jobs. However, that could be my gym. I recognized most of those stereotypes.

  • Dixie Rect

    I thought it was very accurate. I know a guy who is at least 5 of the stereotypes rolled into one.

  • ZaneStuart

    Yes, we’ve all seen the stereotypes at the gym but I had to stop watching this video at 1:07 because that’s all the stupid I can handle in one day.

  • KittyLitter

    @ZaneStuart: Comments here were more than enough for me.

  • TheMarc

    Wow, apparently this video hit a little too close to home for the “author” of this story. Queerty: Home of the easily offended and the juvenile. I’ve seen this video covered else where with absolutely no mention of it being “offensive.” Because it’s not. Funniest video on the planet? Obviously not; but certainly not offensive…unless someone is LOOKING for a reason to be offended. Seriously, half the staff needs therapy and the other half apparently hasn’t graduated junior high.

  • Ridpathos

    I thought this was funny when I first saw it. Don’t know what you guys feel offensive about it.

    I’m “Doesn’t know what he’s doing guy”, “Mr. Excuses” (because I have no idea how to do anything at the gym and that’s my excuse for not going) and “Treadmill Sprinter”. (because the one time I did go, all I did was sprint on the treadmill)

  • Arkansassy

    Very funny and very true! Considering they left out all of the obvious gay gym stereotypes I’m surprised anyone here would be offended. Besides, a couple of them are kind of hot!

  • Ditamo

    Why is Queerty hating on them? Of course the video wasn’t the funniest video I’ve ever seen, but it was funny. Plus I identified with some of the characters, mostly the sweaty guy, I didn’t think it was offensive at all, just a laugh.

  • viveutvivas

    Why do you label them as straight? Because they are not flapping their wrists? Who is guilty of stereotyping now, Queerty?

    I found it quite funny, so get that bee out of your bonnet.

  • darkanser

    I think you forgot the I-think-I’m-all-that-hence-my-swagger dude.

  • Tackle

    @viveutvivas: Good point, and funny that you said that, because my gaydar went off on two of them. That being said, I thought the video was mildly funny and found most of the gym stereotypes to be true…

  • tada-no

    These guys never set foot into Equinox or they would not leave out the sausage fest that goes on in the saunas and locker rooms.

  • jonathanyoungii

    it’s not really offensive… it’s pretty light-hearted and I found it hilarious

    OH MY FUCK’N GAAA…i just watched some guy flex’n with his shirt off and had his “buddy” take pix of him at the gym locker room to post on whatever whore site he logs onto…hysterical!

  • jwrappaport

    This is why I bring a book and headphones to the gym.

  • QuintoLover

    The one guy doing the bicep curls next to protein guy was HOT.
    And it was a very stupid video but it did point out mostly true stereotypes (how have you never seen a sauna suit guy? People ALWAYS overdress in those expensive outfits at the gyms) and I laughed a little when the guy swung on the pull-up bar to Wrecking Ball haha.
