Joey Swoll’s ‘movement to change toxic gym culture’ is spreading – Fitness Volt
Fitness influencer Joey Swoll continues to use his social media presence to fight toxic gym culture. In his latest TikTok video, Swoll gave an example of a female TikToker to shame gym-goers.
Joey Swoll is a popular influencer and has steadily become a TikTok sensation for his noble fight against bad gym etiquette. Swoll often makes headlines with viral videos aimed at correcting bad behavior in the fitness world. Last week, Joey reacted to a female TikToker who thought she was being stared at by an older man. Swoll pointed out the difference between “watching like a creep and just watching someone to see what they’re up to” in his latest video.
In a since-deleted video, another TikToker woman attacked a gym goer who she said was lifting the ego and performing “half-ass reps.” She didn’t know that the exercise the man was doing was called a partial. Once the viral snafu hit Joey, he took the opportunity to explain how great partials are for delts and building size.
It looks like Joey’s efforts are gaining momentum as a man named Reshaud has joined him in condemning a female TikToker for mocking her local gym-goers.

In a recent video made on TikTok, Swoll thanks Reshaud, and explains the reasons why the young woman should not have posted the video.
The video reads: “Going to Planet Fitness for the first time” and queues up the TikToker woman saying “Where are all the sexy people?”.
“Honey, I don’t know if you know this but there’s this guy named Joey Swoll. You still got time to take him down. Reshaud said. Take that shit down now!”
“Rashad this is amazing thank you bro. This shows you guys the movement to change the toxic gym culture is spreading. It is growing and you are seeing the change on social media on TikTok. It’s awesome . Thank you all.” said Joey Swol.
The #MYOB the movement is growing! The culture is changing! Thank you @Reshaud
According to Swoll, the video is hurtful to people who suffer from gym anxiety. Additionally, he thinks people should be more respectful of others in gyms because it’s a shared space.
“That young woman who posted the video, you need to understand what it does to people with gym anxiety. People who are afraid to set foot in a gym and start their journey. It’s so hurtful to them. You shouldn’t have posted this. You need to do better. And to those who say “Joey, why don’t you message them before you post first”. Why does it have to come from me? I’m not not special.
What’s more important about me than Reshaud or anyone commenting on this video. That should be enough to know that the video shouldn’t be out of place. You must do better. Swol said. Mind your own business.”
