Social Group: 24 Hour Fitness Personal Trainers
Description: This group consists of all personal trainers currently working at the 24 Hour Fitness in Santa Barbara. The large majority of them are male between the ages of 18-35, and they are generally very health conscious and at times some what narcissistic. There are constantly new trainers coming into the gym, meaning that their specific vocabulary is constantly changing as well.
