A gymcel is an incel who copes by thinking that he'll turn into a chad if he goes to the gym and works hard.

At the end of the day, most incels would benefit by gymcelling, especially fatcels who need to lose bodyfat to show their bone structure, or skinnycels who are just skin and bones, and could use extra muscles in their neck, shoulders and torso.
