@Blt2 I guess all I can say to that different strokes for different folks. I mentioned earlier that I workout outside mostly and alone and It is really hard for me to either disgust or impress myself lol

@ BLT: this was locker rooms (women) and pre-and post workout in the fitness classes i taught (women & men). i was clueless to the signals--still am to a large extent. d'oh!

When I was a "newbie" to the gym scene in New York, there were certain gyms that were like pick up spots and it probably persists today. It's no secret that a lot of people made hook-ups at the gym. Some even married and had long-term relationships and it didn't have much to do with what someone was wearing. We had the hardcore training mentality in common which is a very strong bond -- you trained the same, you at the same and in a lot of cases you fucked and fucked a lot. As far as chatting up is concerned, the circles I rolled in, you didn't chat in the gym, you trained and trained hard. We were competitors from the amateurs to the pros. I still have that mentality. Even at my PF in Vero, if I ask someone in a nice way can I work in with them, they usually say yes, mostly the men because they are often the ones pressing what I press or using the machine I need. I am in and out. I see people who stay in the gym for hours and hours and they look exactly the same way -- no progress.

heh. i am of two minds on this. i go to the gym to work, and work hard.

so i dress in gym appropriate attire (although my PF doesn't allow midriff baring attire, rolling my eyes) and when i am there, my focus is on the work.

i see all ends of the spectrum: sloppy/gross to "gym bunnies" made up & barely legally dressed, and hey--difft strokes for difft folks. i am there strictly to work out. so much so that i have missed out on some obvious (now that i am older, in retrospect) attempts to pick me up/chat me up.

and that's okay. i don't like to mess with one of the places i go to de-stress and relax.

@Charlie aka Cougar: I totally disagree and had this dispute with one of my trainers back in the day who thought that just because I came to the gym Viva Glam that I wasn't prepared to not only train but train hard. He was totally wrong and soon found out. I ALWAYS go to the gym looking and smelling fresh, not overbearing with perfume but always groomed. Just because someone looks sloppy doesn't mean they're more serious. My saying used to be I always wanted to be ready for a photo shoot.

OT: It's like when I see women, especially single women, who claim they don't want to be single, going to the store with rollers and/or slippers or pants that look like PJ's. What's up with that? And then they complain they can't meet anybody. Whatever.

@OP anything that fits you're there to train not make a fashion statement

Sports bra and yoga pants. Sometimes shirt and gym pants. I'm there to work out and it is a all women gym so I have to stay focus before I get in trouble! Haha

we work with a private personal trainer who has her own gym to avoid the planet fitness gyms that all seem to take your money, discourage real weight lifting training and close after a short time

njny: I know each PF is individually owned. At my gym in Vero Beach, we don't have a dress code like that. I never wear just a sports bra and no covering. Not because I don't think it's cool, unless I have a visible six pack, I am not wearing it. We have women there who wear almost nothing an no one bothers them.

I am happy about the clunk thing because I hate stupid asses who drop weights. What I don't like is people who park their ass on the machine when they know you were working that particular machine as part of a super set. I politely tell them I have one more here or whatever. There is no gym etiquette. That's the difference between a hardcore gym and PF.

I see a lot of regulars. Some people even come with their nurses, etc. I've seen quite a few people who clearly have had strokes. This is a good thing, though after the fact.

One of my pet peeves is the knucklehead who wants to follow you up close in the gym. I give them "the look," finish up my workout and get the fuck out.
