“Sweat Is Just Your Fat Crying,” Says Weird Sign In Alabama Weight Room (via Deadspin)
Ok, seriously. Does no one at Deadspin look at Pinterest? In the midst of all the serious investigative work they’re doing over there, none of their writers has ever stumbled across a fitspiration blog? None of them are even Facebook friends with any Zumba instructors (heyyyyy) or sorority girls gearing up for bikini season?
This quote is all over the damn place (the damn place being the internet, obvs), usually with photos of sweaty, toned, tanned chicks in short shorts and sports bras. Perhaps the strength coaches thought that would’ve been more distracting than motivating, and maybe it is a weird message to use in a college football weight room but that is exactly the type of thing that speaks to the young female workout crowd.
I’ll just go out on a limb and assume whoever coined that headline also hasn’t heard about the trend of wearing all black to work out because you’re going to a funeral for your fat.
