Fitness influencer recording workout in shared gym makes faces and gets annoyed when people get in the way. Bodybuilding Instagrammer puts her in her place and calls out the entitlement.
Bodybuilder Joey Swoll Calls Out Fitness Influencer: “The Gym is Not Your Personal Studio”
Joey Swoll also known as @thejoeyswoll on socials has decided to dedicate himself to calling out entitlement when it comes to influencers.
This time he decided to call out another influencer who was recording herself in the gym and getting annoyed when people walked through her shots.
Fitness influencers are an entirely different breed. While they’re often providing content of value to those trying to get into shape, some also take this as an opportunity to take over as much space in the gym as possible.
This means that those who also pay for the same gym membership are limited in space so they don’t end up in the shot.
Now it seems that people have stopped caring and just dont entertain the entitlement that they exhibit.
This female influencer captioned her video "This always happens when you're shooting content," as she made faces at the camera when people walked into her shot.
Joey said that this behavior was unacceptable. "You know I truly don't understand this entitlement when filming in gyms. But this nonsense needs to end.”
"Imagine setting your camera up in a busy walkway in front of some lockers and the locker rooms and then getting upset when people walk through your video? Really? And the look you give that man at the end, as if he and everybody else should stop what they're doing just because you're filming?"
He continues to say, "I'm sorry you don't own the gym. It's not his job or anybody's job to care about you filming. They pay the same gym membership fees that you pay."
He said that if you filmed in a shared space then you’d have to work around their limitations. "But hey, if you want to film somewhere where nobody's gonna walk into your video and you can do as you please, build a home gym."
"Train there. It's videos like this and people like you that are the reason that everyone wants filming banned in gyms. You need to do better. Mind your own business."
Commenters agreed with Joey and said that this new culture had started hindering their gym experiences as well.
One even mentioned how a gym dedicated to the practice had opened up in Australia.
Some other gyms on the other hand had opted to ban filming on their premises.
