BUFF Dudes

If you're looking for extra motivation to hit the gym in the new year—well, this video is not it. But it does offer a humorous look at the jungle that is the modern workout space.

Created by the folks at BUFF Dudes, a YouTube channel that offers healthy recipes and workout routines, "Gym Wildlife" is shot in the style of an animal documentary, following homo sapiens as they work out in their unnatural habitat.

From the "rare females who have dared to step off the safety of the treadmills and set foot in this harsh free weight terrain" to the lifters who "yell and grunt" to seek attention from "all surrounding homo sapiens," the video captures all your worst nightmares about working out in the presence of others. You're welcome.
