There’s a new meme taking the Internet by storm and it’s called “Gym Kardashian.” The photoshopped images show Kim Kardashian as she usually poses throughout the day only her arms have been edited to those of a champion body builder’s.
While many fans are used to seeing Kim Kardashian in the buff, the Gym Kardashian meme gives a new meaning to a buff Kim K. Twitter user Jay Paul George began sharing the photos that instantly went viral.
Now, media outlets nationwide have picked up the story while the images continue to draw plenty of online attention. Jay’s collection of Gym Kardashian images have received more than 266,000 likes and over 1,500 comments. The Gym Kardashian meme has been shared over 74,000 times.
Twitter users are loving the Gym Kardashian photos and are creating their own memes. Kim K is always the subject of memes especially since she spends an inordinate amount of time sharing selfies and naked photos online.
It’s not uncommon to find Kim Kardashian in social media GIF and image searches, but this may be the first time anyone has seen buff Kim Kardashian.
Earlier this week, a meme of Kim Kardashian running from spiders went viral. You may see buff Kim Kardashian in the photos below.

Jay said that he thinks he found a new hobby and a quick scroll through his Twitter feed didn’t reveal any other celebrity images that have been given the same treatment.
There haven’t been new pictures of Gym Kardashian added to his Twitter either, so it’s unclear whether he will continue to bring Gym Kardashian to the masses or use other celebrities as subject material.
Still, even if this is all Jay decides to create, we have a feeling that Gym Kardashian will be a meme that outlasts the test of time.
Unlike photoshopped pictures that tend to cause controversy such as making someone appear larger and then fat-shaming them, or doing the reverse these images aren’t producing any negative remarks, most likely because people view working out at the gym and getting muscular as an indicator of health.
What do you think about the Gym Kardashian meme? Do you think it’s funny? Some people are encouraging Kim Kardashian to hit the gym for real and get buff so she matches the pictures.
