* The young MorallyBankruptBanker George Warleggan in ''Series/{{Poldark}}'' is a NouveauRiche who has molded himself into the epitome of cultured gentility. Although George has a bit of a SlobsVersusSnobs dynamic with his ArchEnemy, Ross Poldark, who comes from the gentry but is a man of the people, the expectation of George being a SissyVillain is subverted, as George regularly trains with a professional boxer, often while plotting against Ross. It's implied that George does this so he can win against Ross in physical combat in the same way he aims to win against him through economic chicanery. Indeed, in one episode where the two drop social pretenses and get into a bare-knuckle fight, George is evenly matched with the brawny Ross thanks to a combination of all of his training and simply from [[TheCombatPragmatist fighting really, really dirty]].

* Tombstone does this in ''[[WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan The Spectacular Spider-Man]]'' -- fitting, since that adaptation promoted him to the Kingpin's usual role. (They couldn't use the trope namer himself due to rights issues.)
* In one episode of ''[[WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries Superman The Animated Series]]'', while it's not really "in a gym", Lex Luthor is seen practicing archery - for bonus points, he does this while on the phone with Lois Lane and asking her "Do you really think I would jeopardize the safety of this planet just to settle my personal grudge against Superman?". And then hitting a bullseye with a shit-eating smirk.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'', David Xanatos enjoys sparring in a dojo. As always [[MagnificentBastard subverting]] such things, he shows how {{Badass}} he is by ''losing'' to his BattleButler and then commenting on how surprised he was that Owen has improved.

* In ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'', near the end of season 1, when we see Cassandra Savage for the second time, she's sparring with a group of soldiers and easily bests them before berating them for their sloppy performance, pointing out that [[ComicBook/VandalSavage her father]] won't tolerate this from his finest.

* Issue 350 of ''Comicbook/CaptainAmerica'' showed the recently-resurrected ComicBook/RedSkull practicing his hand-to-hand skills by slaughtering several of the {{Taskmaster}}'s trained cronies... all of whom were dressed as Captain America. Later stories expanded upon this: Red Skull never tells his would-be appointments that he is going to fight them to the death, just for the added lulz of watching them panic when they realize that Skull was going to kill them.
