What Your Gym Says About Your Social Life

| Fitness

Most of us tend to be pretty ride or die for our gyms (SoulCycle devotees and Flywheel followers are basically modern-day Montagues and Capulets). And according to new survey data from FourSquare, your go-to sweat station suggests more about you than what type of exercise equipment floats your boat. A lot more.

Here's what your place of workout worship says about your social life,eating habits, and other personal preference, according to Women's Health.

Equinox: Equinox enthusiasts are as fancy pants as everyone assumes they are (those memberships are not cheap). According to the data, they can be found frequenting juice bars, airport lounges, and fancy boutiques when they're not flexing in the weight room. They’re also nine times more likely to check into gluten-free restaurants and chow down on ramen and dumplings—no doubt somewhere chic.

Flywheel: Hipsters tend to flock to Flywheel. When they’re not on the bike, they’re checking into indie theaters, sculpture gardens, yoga studios, boxing gyms, and Buddhist temples. But they aren't totally pure: This group is more likely to splurge on brunch and Bloody Marys.

Planet FitnessPatrons of Planet Fitness know how to party. This group is four times more likely to go salsa dancing — a genius way to show off that hard-earned bod. But they also appreciate a balanced life, as evidenced by their likelihood to be found at fried chicken joints.
