A gym nemesis is a person whose presence in the gym has a consistent
adverse effect on one's own gym-going experience. The most common manifestation of such a person is someone who always seems to be on the equipment that
you want to use but they could
also just be an obnoxious, disrespectful, or otherwise
unpleasant fellow gym-goer.

press for like an hour. And that's the third

Joe: "You know what you've got yourself
there, don't you?"
Mike: "No. What?"
Joe: "You've got yourself
a gym nemesis my friend."
Mike: "Fuck my life."
