Woman deletes TikTok account after being called out by fitness influencer

If you post a TikTok of yourself at the gym and receive a point from Joey Sergo (@thejoeyswoll), you’ve probably done something wrong nine times out of 10.

Swoll created an online following with “Gym Positivity Nation” and by assembling videos of people making fun of other gym goers in their videos. Currently, Swoll has over 6 million followers on TikTok and over 2.2 million followers on Instagram.

Swoll recently stitched together a video with designer Jessica Fernandez (@jessica.frndz) after she posted a video accusing a man of being “weird” with her in the gym.

“Women are being harassed in gyms and it needs to stop, but you’re not one of them. One act of kindness or one look doesn’t make you a victim,” Swoll wrote in the captions.

Fernandez has since deleted the video and apologized.

After Fernandez’s video, Swoll stitched up another video with @gwinie_the_pooh due to her putting an older man in her videos.

“Making fun of an old man who works for likes and attention? Really? Thank everyone who defended him,” Swoll said in the captions of the 46-second video.

“Men just having fun with the bag why hate it?” said @doubie.swag in the comments.

@Gwinie_the_pooh went further than just apologizing. She deleted her TikTok account.

Swoll, in that same video, also touched on how many people want shoots to be banned in all gyms.

Some gyms have banned filming, but gym-goers may be a little hesitant to waive that right.

Reddit user u/smallof2pieces discussed this issue in a thread and received praise for their response.

“It’s a decision that needs to be made in the context of each gym, its culture and its clientele,” they said. “But I go to a powerlifting gym and banning filming wouldn’t go well there. … The same would go for an Olympic weight room or a weight room where they have to record poses to revise them and refine.

It’s an interesting debate, especially with recreational lifters who bring their cameras to the gym. While many gyms continue to allow recordings, remember that if you make fun of someone in the gym, you might end up on Joey Swoll’s TikTok.
