“I don’t understand why gyms have mirrors. I know what I look like. That’s why I’m there”

"I don’t get/understand why gyms have mirrors. I know what I look like. That’s why I’m here/there” is a gym saying that has been printed on many images.

“RT @rene: I don’t get why gyms have mirrors… I know what I look like. That’s why I’m there” was posted on Twitter by Cia on February 9, 2012. The original post by @rene is no longer available.

“I don’t get” is often replaced by “I don’t understand,” and “That’s why I’m there” is often “That’s why I’m here.” “I don’t understand why gyms have mirrors… I know I look like crap. That’s why I’m here!” was posted on Twitter by Beau Pinto on February 9, 2012. “I don’t get why gyms have mirrors… I know what I look like that’s why I’m here” was posted on Twitter by Temi on February 9, 2012.
