9 Types of People You'll Find At The Gym [GIFS]

Shopping Gym

We're less than a week into the new year and gyms are already flooded with resolutionists hoping to achieve snatched bodies before the snow melts. We've also fallen victim to this vicious cycle and one thing's for sure: your local gym is a prime spot for people watching. Whatever your ultimate goal may be, the gym is good for the body and much-needed entertainment after a long day at work.

Flip the page for a list of characters you're bound to run into.

Gym lifting weights

The man who grunts loudly.

Is he in pain? Does he want attention? Is he having trouble breathing? Whatever the reason, making animal noises in the gym is just a bit distracting to the rest of us.

Selfie

The selfie-obsessed man/woman.

What's a trip to the gym if you can't let everyone else know you're there (sense our sarcasm?)? Nothing's more important than some self reflection, exercise included (apparently).

Gym Flex

The Flexer.

We all know this guy. In between reps, he's staring at himself in the mirror and flexing whatever muscles he does or doesn't have. Why? Because he's sexy and he knows it.

Fit Woman in gym

The really fit girl that threatens your high self esteem.

Abs packed, ass stacked and legs for days. She looks amazing running, lifting and glistening. We secretly want her as our personal trainer. And we can only dream of looking like that.

The Rock

The impossibly good looking man.

If that crazy fit girl has you feeling blue, eye candy is the best pick-me-up. If only we could work out with The Rock everyday.

Gym Fail

The elderly person trying to figure out the machines.

They arrive dressed up and ready to go, but can't make it past the treadmill. Poor things- someone help them out.

Workout in regular clothes

The person working out.....in their work clothes.

Apparently common sense isn't common. The least you can do is dress the part.

Watching TV at gym

The cycling TV-watchers.

These people will sit on a bike and cycle like there's no tomorrow....as long as there's a flat screen in front of them. Plan on waiting a very long time for your chance at some sit-down cardio.

I-Pod Gif

I-Pod

The I-Pod obsessor.

Ever awkwardly stand near a machine wondering if the person in front of you is still using it? Maybe if their heads weren't buried in their Ipods/phones half the time, you could actually tell. In fact, we wonder if they've even made it to the workout portion of their gym visit.

Beyoncé, Rihanna, And J. Lo Make Forbes’ Highest-Paid Women In Music List

As November comes to a close, many publications will be crafting their year-end lists for all things pop culture. Forbes released a ranking of the world's highest-paid women in music on Monday (Nov. 19), with Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, and Rihanna holding it down for women of color.

Beyoncé comes in at No. 3 on the list with an earning of $60 million as she made most of her money through her historical Coachella performance, the joint album with husband JAY-Z, Everything is Love, and the Carters' On The Run II Tour in support of its release.

Jennifer Lopez made No. 6 for earnings tallying of over $47 million thanks to her lucrative Las Vegas residency, endorsements, and shows including World of Dance where she serves as a judge.

Rihanna follows behind the "Love Don't Cost A Thing" diva at No. 7 with earnings of over $37.5 million. Although she hasn't toured since 2016—thanks to her cosmetics and lingerie lines, Fenty Beauty and Savage Lingerie—the Bajan pop star has been keeping herself busy.

Forbes' annual list (which factors in pretax earnings from June 1, 2017, through June 1, 2018) has placed Katy Perry at the top with over $83 million in profits due to her gig as an American Idol judge and her 80-date Witness: The Tour that brought in an estimated $1 million per night.

Kelly Rowland Hops In Her Bag With New Single "Kelly"

Kelly Rowland has it all and isn't afraid to brag about it on her new single, "Kelly."

Released Thursday (Nov. 22), the singer goes the clubby, confident route while rightfully dropping her attributes like her relationship with God, smoldering looks (a.k.a the drip) among other things. With "Kelly" being the first single since her 2013's Talk a Good Game, the singer comes out swinging, reminding everyone of her power in the game.

The mother of one has promised that her new tunes will be edgier and most honest than her past work that included vulnerable tracks like "Dirty Laundry" and massive hits like "Motivation" and "Commander." Speaking with Vogue over the summer, Ms. Kelly disclosed a few details behind the album.

“It’s about love, loss, and gain and whether it’s professional or with family or whatever, it’s just honest," she said. "I had no choice but to be honest and authentic with this record: it’s about friendship and marriage.”

She also explained a drop in confidence caused her hiatus. “I was thinking about pulling back from recording, but I couldn’t help myself: I still wanted to record. I still felt like I was missing something. The third year just came and left so fast. The fourth year I said: ‘I have to get to work’ and now I’m ready to release some music! I felt like I wasted so much time, and it was my husband who actually called me out on it. He said: ‘Babe, as great as those records were, I think you were nervous, you got gun-shy’, and when he said that it was like boom, a gong went off.”

Glad to have you back, Ms. Kelly. Listen to the eponymous record up top.
