How much you liftin’ bruh?

Look we all know that staying actively fit is a good thing. Whenever we are feeling sluggish, guilty, or just want to get our sh*t together we all end up eventually spending too much money on a gym membership we sometimes use. Whether you actually like going to the gym or not, we can all agree there are several people who go that we just want to strangle because let’s face it, the gym attracts some of the worst people out there. Today join Tuong La and gym rats Spencer Galipeau, Nathalie Lengacher, and Alex MacInnis as they call out the worst people and rank the top 5 Pet Peeves at the gym!
