Why do they just stand around in one spot day after day after day inside of a gym? Don't they have families? What business could they possibly have inside a gym doing anything other than challenging the gym leader? I know this is a video game, but it's still interesting to talk about these things.
There's a 95% chance this topic is unfunny. Deal with it.

The phenomenon is hardly exclusive to gym trainers. 90% of NPCs don't stand anywhere near their homes.

I know that but at least maybe they're bird-watching outside. What could you possibly be doing inside a gym.

Indentured servants. They get help from the Gym Leader in exchange for their servitude.
Not changing this sig until we get a new main series Tales game released on a Nintendo console in the US

Of course not! Trainers, regardless of status, can't legally enslave other people, only pokemon...

They are probably employees or students of the gym trainer.

I don't think Elesa has enslaved Smogoon. Their love is mutual as far as I understand.
