Protein Shakers & Gym Accessories For The Ultimate Gym Junkies
What is a gym junkie? A gym junkie isn’t simply someone that goes to the gym. They’re not someone who’s ‘fit’. They’re not someone who heads to the gym when they get a chance. A gym junkie is obsessed with the gym. No. They’re more than obsessed. They’re addicted. It’s their life. Their religion. You can tell they go to the gym just by looking at them—from 100m away. They’d rather miss sleep than a workout. You can identify gym junkies by the tight clothes, protein shaker in their hand, and the overdeveloped muscles they’re admiring in a window’s reflection.
Gym junkies are a species of their own. You can’t just be buying them any old gift. To make their special occasion truly special, you need to surprise them with gym accessories like a protein shaker (a gym junkie can never have enough shaker bottles).
