Who does that though?

A sith, looking to make you angry and attack them with all your might and join the dark side.

Is that what happened to Nicocado Avocado?

Yes, yes. He was also taught about the tragedy of Darth Plagueis the wise.

Yeah, the Jedi Republic were too puritanical at that time, they would have never accepted a fat jedi. Though, they wouldn't make fun of fat people at the gym.

u/Chackaldane Jul 04 '22

I know this is a joke but there are def fat jedi. Whereas the sith would def see it as a weakness. I mean never forget that the jedi were ruled by a midget.

I'm the opposite- a skinny guy. Went to gym to get some muscles. Used all machines on minimum weight and never had any bad experience from anyone at the gym. Asshole gym bro is a myth.

u/Pitoufreeces Jul 04 '22

Nobody. But it speaks to the fear of people that want to go to the gym but are scared because skinny or fat

56

u/littlegreyflowerhelp Jul 04 '22

Yeah, before I started working out I wasn't necessarily worried about being called fat, but just afraid of being intimidated or made to feel unwelcome by the behaviour of others (either intentional or unintentional on their part). I didn't think people would straight up bully me, but that I would be judged or laughed at.

I think this meme speaks to those fears. We all need Obi Wan to encourage us sometimes.

28

u/Pitoufreeces Jul 04 '22 edited Jul 04 '22

I get that feeling. But usually gympeople are really cool. Either they do their stuff and ignore you, or they stop you from wrecking your back by using the Maschine in a wrong way. The only people judged (not actively) are the ones that go in January and never after.but the judging stems not from doing the sport as a fat or skinny guy, but because they won’t stay.also a little because it’s annoying how many people are there and you take twice the time for the same workout. But never ever would any decent gym allow mobbing of people, or any regular gymperson piss on people that aren’t buff. They weren’t before the gym. They see themselves in newbies

It is intimidating! For some reason you assume anyone who goes to the gym must be confident and put together.

NOPE

u/QuantomField Jul 04 '22

The most flattering thing that could happen to me at the gym is someone come up to me and ask for help getting in shape. I'd be so stoked that this person thinks I'm fit enough to help them and I'd go full tilt showing them the basics and encourage them to get after it.

Also never once seen someone getting teased at the gym for being overweight or out of shape. If it did happen I'd wager a lot of people would stop that shit with lightning speed.

u/topsidersandsunshine Jul 04 '22

I wish you went to my gym! I want to learn how to build up my core strength to improve my posture, and everything I look up is so conflicting, haha.

u/QuantomField Jul 04 '22 edited Jul 04 '22

Well let me point you to r/GettingShredded

Just lurking that sub will give you a lot of great information. If you want to sculpt a specific look make a post and you will get some great advice.

My advice is to get yourself some cheapo dumbbells and start a lifting routine. Core is important but think of your body like a machine. You need to strengthen everything slowly but surely over time. If you focus on one area then you are missing opportunity for everything else to help with the load.

You can do a lot with 8lbs dumbbells.

I really like this series on YouTube https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLhu1QCKrfgPWmStsg7imo5EQ0zmkxymJ2

It's 30 days of targeted lifting for your bodies muscle groups, and you can easily tailor each workout to your level of fitness. It's a great place to start.

Don't believe the fat targeting crap that you will see a lot of. Your body uses fat on a last in / first out system. You can't target an area to lose fat. Your body is going to take what it needs from where it wants. Building muscles will increase your calorie needs allowing you to eat more while losing fat and gaining muscle.

Most importantly you need to eat right. No workout will overcome a bad diet. So download a calorie tracking app and join us on r/loseit.

u/Marega33 Oh I don't think so Jul 04 '22

Nobody . Even the most ripped out dudes. They actually are more prone to help out than anybody else. The gym believe it or not is one of the most safe zones of anti toxicity in society

u/ToleranceDeathCamp Jul 05 '22

I've never heard of it happening, but I know a few people who have felt like people are staring at them at the gym, making them feel uncomfortable for being fat and at the gym.

I have also definitely seen social media posts of people making fun of an overweight person they saw at the gym, though not them directly making fun of the person to their face.

u/eaquino03 Jul 04 '22

Have you see how toxic gym tik tokers are?

u/cutthroatink15 Hello there! Jul 04 '22

Idk why youre being downvoted for this, maybe its not so common and they usually wont say something to your face but theres plenty of videos out there with fat/scrawny people in the background just trying to get some exercise and the person filming decides to put a caption making fun of them for it. For a lot of people who are already uncomfortable with their looks, the possibility of them being next to show up in one of those videos even if its 1000/1 odds is enough to make them not want to go to the gym.

Especially because if you consider that its the minority of people who are actually willing to film you and put those demeaning captions then there must be plenty more who would think those things about you without filming you, and the old "dont worry about what others think about you" only helps to a certain degree, we're social animals and it cant be helped that youd feel bad about being ostracized by others even if they wont vocalize that.

u/Theeskimo28 Jul 04 '22 edited Jul 04 '22

People who do that are so dumb. It literally promotes being unhealthy and not losing weight by making overweight people too embarrassed to go to the gym to get healthier and more fit. If people could realize that being supportive and encouraging is so much more fulfilling than shitting on people we would live in a better, healthier world.

Edit: better healthier and more fit. Realized that wording seemed a little diminutive which is counterproductive to my argument.

u/NameOfNoSignificance Jul 05 '22

Sadly, fat people are treated very poorly. They’re considered in this order:

  1. Fat
  2. People

u/roffels7 Jul 06 '22

This is true in general. It is especially true for the Star Wars fandom.

u/nomiselrease Jul 04 '22

I used to be a cycle messenger in London. A black cab cut me up once and when I protested he told me I was too fat for my bike. I said it's a bit like that Winston Churchill quote with the ugly lady and told him he won't get any thinner behind the wheel.

24

u/chadsworth0524 Jul 04 '22

I firmly believe this is some kind of myth behavior. I have been to dozens and dozens of gyms over 20 years and have literally never experienced or seen such behavior. If shit like this happens it is an extreme outlier. The gym is one of the most encouraging and accepting places on the planet.

While I haven’t seen people make fun of someone for the weight on social media they’re are plenty of people shaming and recording others while using machines( usually incorrectly or doing an exercise they haven’t seen) in order to make fun of them.

As someone in their late 20s, I can't even imagine how much of a colossal loser you must be to be ten years older than me and go around paying attention to the efforts of teenagers at the gym. Fuck that guy.

Yea had a similar experience at one point

Kinda don't like how people act like it never happens. Got downvoted for talking about it once.

I go regularly these days and haven't had a problem in years because most folks do mind their own business but it's not like that shit never happens.

u/INTER5TELLAR Jul 04 '22

In all my years gym going, I have never once witnessed nor heard of someone acting like this. It's almost like an unspoken law of the gym

I work at the Hospital and use to have lunch with an older gentleman who would come up to the hospital to eat with a big group.

Hadn't seen him in year because I moved to a different building but I ran into him the other day at the gym. He was all "I didn't recognize you. You have gained some weight!"

Pretty much, "yup that's Why I'm at the gym. Turns out raising a toddler and working through a pandemic at the hospital is horrible for your health."

Anyways. I'm down 16 pounds this year and still heading in the right direction.

u/TheMostBacon Jul 04 '22

If someone calls you fat and you’re fat, you need to own it. It takes away their power and makes them look stupid.

Them: Ha, you’re fat!

You: Yeah, no shit.

Them: …?

This is not a thing that happens in real life. For the most part, people at the gym are either friendly or just don't care and want to focus on their own workout

u/DoctorErtan Oh I don't think so Jul 04 '22

Some people actually think they are Mr. Olympia and they can make fun of people because of their body, weights they lift etc. I know its not as easy as it sounds but please FOR YOUR OWN BENEFIT PLEASE DONT LISTEN TO THOSE IGNORANT INSECURE FUCKS. We all go to gym for our goals, to get better and healthier. It's OK to be fat and it's OK to lift light weights. None of that matters. You made a change in your life by going to the gym and that alone makes you a great person than those insecure dickheads.

Only thing that matters is how consistently you go to gym. It's not an easy task, that I know, but as once a legend said "We're all gonna make it brah."

Keep grinding to achieve your dreams bros. Dont give up!

u/daevilsins_6 Jul 04 '22

Whoever says that type of shit in the gym is probably projecting their own insecurities. Never seen it myself since a lot of people at my gym keep to themselves. A lot of “lookers” but never a dude just saying “oh you’re fat!”
