People Who Go Up Two Stairs at a Time refers to a series of jokes and memes about feigning awe at people who can walk up stairs two at a time.


Referencing people who can walk the stairs two at a time has existed since as early as 1977, when in the book Quote Unquote, Joan Welsh's quote states, "A man's health can be judged by which he takes two at a time -- pills or stairs."[1][2]


Over the next several decades, various articles have been written about the phenomenon. On December 13th, 2012, The Daily Mail[3] published the article "The cheat's guide to exercise: Taking the stairs one at a time burns MORE calories than leaping up them."

On January 10th, 2017, Instagram [4] user @ScottyScottyOxenFree posted a Game of Thrones meme featuring a character in awe of another walking up stairs two at a time. The post received more than 390 likes in less than two years.

Later that year, The Tab[5] published an article called "Is it just me or does literally every guy take the stairs two at a time? An investigation." The post featured various tweets of people talking about the act (examples below).
