10 Signs of the Hipster Gym Rat

You've heard of the "bro" - the muscle tanked, Friday-night-pre-drinking-weight-lifter grunting in the corner.

And then there's the "beauty queen" - music blaring, full face of makeup, going as fast as she possibly can, shaking the elliptical.

Well, rarely do you see the elusive "hipster gym rat." But if you ever did, here are some things you might encounter...

  1. Gym selfies are taken with Polaroid cameras.
  2. You have your iPod, they have their record players.
  3. They curl with their biceps and handlebar mustaches.
  4. They were planking before it was cool.
  5. Their water bottles contain PBR.
  6. Sets and reps are tracked on a typewriter.
  7. Hipster gym rats run on the treadmill ironically.
  8. They never work the leg press; skinny jeans won't allow for the movement.
  9. Nor do they do push ups; their thick rimmed glasses always fall forward.
  10. Don't ask where they got their running shoes - it's a pretty obscure store, you've probably never heard of it.

If a tree falls in the forest, and no one is around to hear it, does a hipster buy the album?
