Synopsis


"After all if you're in shape people notice you, and being ignored is the last thing you want to happen".


Driven by a daily quest for perfection, Will takes us on a fast paced, sweaty, physical exploration of how the gym has strengthened and weakened his relationships, his physique and ultimately his life.


A complex love story from a gym addict's point of view, set within a 60 minute workout, A Gym Thing tackles body image and bigorexia (Body Dysmorphic Disorder), leaving those who don't visit the gym with a greater understanding of 'why we do what we do'.
