Part of the power of our community is the terminology, acronyms, nicknames and overall lingo we use at the gym(s). It’s cool to have our own language, inside jokes and different ways of communicating with each other inside the walls of the “box”:)
However for a new person (#rookies) it can be imitating, confusing, isolate them or even demotivating:-O
Consider the list below the cliff notes to understanding the lingo we use and why we use it. Enjoy!
AM I MISSING ANYTHING?? Please comment if so.
