When you're paired off with a total stranger in a group class.
When you ask someone with a great body if you can use their dumbbells.
When diet talk eventually comes up in the locker room and you realize that healthy food isn't all it's cracked up to be...
...but at least you can envision yourself having a great body in the end.
When you see that guy whose body is so big that his head looks a little bit off.
When someone asks you if you only take classes "to meet people."
When you end up taking a Zumba class and FUCKING LOVE IT.
When you've spent a fortune on gym clothes and tennis shoes, plus the bracelet for your iPhone, a headband and everything, and you stand in the dressing room like, "Damn, I look good."

When your trainer pokes and prods you to get one more rep in.
When your rhythm is off and you're totally out of sync in body pump class.
When you wanna quit halfway through your workout 'cause beauty standards are ridic.
When randos approach you at the gym and try to flirt.
When you celebrate killing a hard-ass workout.

When you see someone use a machine without wiping it off.
When you realize how much your membership costs and you haven't gone in two months.
When your trainer gives you a muscle rub and you're totally feeling it.
When it's Jan. 22 and the gym is packed because everyone has gone crazy with their New Year's resolutions...
...and then in August when the resolution crowd is long gone.

...but then have second thoughts about going a little too far.
And finally, when your workout kills you, but when you get home your roommate has made some badass kebabs.
