There's a breed of gym goer who goes so often they might as well stop paying rent on their apartment. Rain or shine, they will show up for their planned workout session. (These excuses to skip the gym won't pass their lips.) Social life be damned, it's leg day.

If you feel like that could be you but aren't positive, there are several telltale signs that you've reached gym rat status. You've probably tried to find a place to hide shampoo in the locker room, and you've definitely memorized which treadmill has optimal Bravo viewing. In case you're still unclear, here are six more signs that you live at the gym. (Related: How Much Exercise You Need Totally Depends on Your Goals)
