MEN hitting on WOMEN at the gym

I am 20 years old and i have been personal training for 2 years now. I work at a gym that has equal men to women. For the past 2 years i have seen many of people come in and out of this fitness center.

about 50% of the guys that come to the gym will stare at the women on the ellipticals, treadmills, machines, etc. and make comments to their other buddies about the "woman with the gorgeous ass".

about 5% of them will actually say something to the female.

now i am a very confident young man who is not affraid to approach and attractive woman. But the gym?

is it right for these men to stare?

is it right for these men to make degrading comments?

here is my thoughts.

women go to the gym for themselves. not to meet you. they want to better themselves and be left alone so they can focus on what they came there to do. workout.

I think that the men who come to the gym and are more focused on moving all the big weight around to impress the female running on the elliptical to the left is sad. they show up the same time as the females they are interested in and pretty much stare in between sets. IF YOU MAKE THIS YOUR WAY OF GETTING WOMEN YOU ARE SLOWLY GOING DOWNHILL. you are turning yourself into a creep. a stalker in a way. and no matter what you try and make yourself believe, it is just socially awkward and uncomfortable.

dont ask her to get a protein shake with you

dont ask her to grab some coffee sometime

dont ask her how her workout is going

she doesnt know you and if she wants to get to know you then let her approach you.

the gym is for working out. the club is for "hooking up"

men, DONT be that guy.

When it comes to anything as variable as human beings, almost nothing is universally true. (Death and taxes, of course.) We had a long thread up here not too long ago in which a guy successfully asked a woman out to coffee at the gym and they ended up dating -- it was kind of sweet.

personally i think it would be nice if a guy at the gym tried to make conversation with me. maybe that's just me because i like a good ego boost ;)

Despite what some have said in this thread (and another older thread) about whether women want to be approached at the gym there are no definitive answers. I will say that most women like to workout in peace. That being said, there are women at the gym for social reasons; however this tends to be the minority. My best estimate would be about 1 in 5 every five. That being said, if a woman is straight, available and interested in you, she will put off the positive vibes. If you don’t bother looking for the signs, odds are against you. If you think that women don't like to be approached at all, you might want to reconsider after reading the following...

I’m in my early 40’s and go to the gym regularly. I have a better-than-average physique with boyish looks. I’ve had women ranging from their early 20’s into their 50’s flirt with me. Here are a few gym situations I’ve encountered over the past year. I’ve had two red-headed sisters in their 30’s exercising next to each other on the treadmill. Holding the rails, they simultaneously turned around (multiple times) to smile at me. Another college-age girl would often do lunges strutting in front of where I exercised. She was approached by every guy in the gym—or so it seemed. Each time a different guy would approach her, she’d actually look over at me to check if I was watching—even with the guy still in her face! A gorgeous and busty woman detected that I was fond of her. I later found out she was a fitness model. Because she used hand weights she could have worked out in nearly any part of the gym yet she’d often do her exercises right in front the elliptical machines when I was doing cardio. Facing me with a low-cut top she would bend down making sure I had a nice view of her cleavage. One time she let her shoulder strap fall down revealing a glorious sight. The notable thing is that she didn’t even bother pulling up her strap—at least not for a minute or so! Oh yea…she looked up to see if I noticed. If the body language in these situations doesn’t emphatically suggest, “Come over and talk to me”, what other conclusion would you draw? I mean I could be wrong, but I doubt it. These are just a few of the more memorable situations not even counting the half-dozen or so opportunities that present themselves every single week.

The easiest place to pick someone up is in a class for two good reasons. First, she won’t be wearing headphones. Second, there’s a certain low-level bonding that takes place with those who take the class. If I were you, I would start by “talking” to another girl in the class when she’s nearby. Don’t talk too loudly, but make sure she can hear what you’re saying. Note: this approach should be in a completely platonic way. Talk to a few other girls over the span of a few sessions. This way she can see that you’re friendly yet she’ll feel special because she also knows that you don’t hit on every girl in the gym.

Seriously, dude, just ask me out for coffee. It's the STARING that makes me want to punch you.

Since buying the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars last year for $770 million Wholesale Jerseys 2016 , auto-parts billionaire Shahid Khan has been trying to revive one of the NFL's worst teams. He's brought in new coaches and players. He's upgraded team facilities and added fan amenities
  • Philadelphia Eagles Jersey
  • . And this fall, he's sending the Jags onto the field with a dramatic new look: a menacing logo, a striking two-tone helmet, and a completely redesigned jersey. "It's got to look cool," Khan says of the attire. "We want to signify this is a new direction, a fresh start. We need more fans."

    Overhauling uniforms as a way to amp up enthusiasm and merchandise sales is an increasingly popular strategy in the pro-sports world. In recent years, teams such as the NBA's Brooklyn Nets
  • San Diego Chargers Jersey
  • , MLB's Toronto Blue Jays, and the NFL's Seattle Seahawks have generated buzz with eye-catching reboots, and the pace of such face-lifts only seems to be increasing. "Redesigns have always been a part of sports
  • San Francisco 49ers Jersey
  • , but things are different now," says Paul Lukas, creator of Uni Watch, a popular blog that covers "athletics aesthetics." For one thing, there's more at stake: Annual merchandise revenue for the NFL, MLB, and NBA is at record levels, with the NFL alone raking in an estimated $9.5 billion in total revenue
  • St. Louis Rams Jersey
  • . And teams must now work harder than ever to attract fans' endlessly divided attention.

    For the Jaguars' redesign, Khan worked with Nike, which last year began making NFL uniforms as part of a reported $1.1 billion deal that lasts through 2016
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jersey
  • . (The company is also behind the less-bold 2013 uniform tweaks for the Miami Dolphins and Minnesota Vikings.) The goal was to create something flashy and different, but not too radical for either the team's supporters or the NFL, which has to approve all uniform-design changes (the league designs logos itself). "We err on the side of evolution, as opposed to revolution, which is where we have a healthy debate going with
  • Tennessee Titans Jersey
  • ," says Leo Kane, the NFL's senior vice president of consumer products. "We've encouraged them to push us."

    The helmet's unique design fades from matte black in front to shiny gold in the rear.
    Nike's Jags jersey is made out of
  • Washington Redskins Jersey
  • high-tech stretch material that hugs the torso for a sleek look but still offers the necessary range of motion.
    An armed-forces-style badge is a nod to Jacksonville's sizable military community.
    The belt adds hidden padding
  • 2015 Super Bowl XLIX
  • , which could help players avoid hip pointers, a common injury.
    When a player interlaces his hands just the right way, the gloves create a single image, the team logo.
    After the Jaguars requested a new look in March 2012
  • 2015New Style Noble Fashion
  • , the NFL's marketing group and team officials got to work on a creative brief that would guide the process. "We explored, What is the essence of the brand?" says Kane. "What is the personality? What do fans think?" One of the new uniform's key elements is a military-style badge that's attached to the front of the new jersey—a nod to the 12% of Jacksonville's population with ties to the armed forces
  • 2015 Pro Bowl
  • . The helmet, a groundbreaking design with a matte-black finish in front that fades into shiny gold in back, is meant to evoke the hunting style of a big cat, which stalks its prey in the shadows before pouncing. And the new team logo features a less-goofy jaguar head than the original, introduced in 1995. "We heard 'The cat has an overbite' or 'It looks like a cartoon,'" says the Jags' Khan. "You listen. That is vital. Where is the threshold where NFL you hit some nerves and offend fans? You want to respect the history, even though it may be short."

    Kisha, along with client services director Lisa Leone and production manager Cathi Christopher Wholesale Jerseys 2016 , were confined to a 10-by-10-foot room backstage at the Auditorium Theatre, working with two heat-press machines and thousands of names on clear film in folders
  • Dallas Cowboys Jersey
  • , organized by team.

    "Even though we pretty much knew who was going to go in the first round, we still made all the names
  • Detroit Lions Jersey
  • , just to be sure, because there always seems to be some anomaly every year," Kisha said.The trio typically make two jerseys for each player: One to hold on stage and another that's destined to be cut into pieces for trading cards
  • Houston Texans Jersey
  • .They bring six jerseys for every team — all with the No. 1
  • Oakland Raiders Jersey
  • on the back — to account for a team having an unlikely three first-round picks.

    Until 2014, they brought only four jerseys per team but in 2013, the Minnesota Vikings traded up and had three first-round draft picks, which meant six jerseys. When the Vikings made their move
  • Jacksonville Jaguars Jersey
  • , Stahls' grabbed an extra jersey from a mannequin in New York City's Radio City Music Hall, where the draft was held.The group gets early word of draft picks from an NFL representative as soon as the pick is submitted by the team
  • Miami Dolphins Jersey
  • . Then the two-minute drill begins: Leone grabs the correct name from a box — this year the box contained 1,600 names
  • Minnesota Vikings Jersey
  • and team possibilities — and hands it off to be pressed by Kisha and Christopher, in a play they've run repeatedly.

    Names are only prepared for first-round prospects who have confirmed they will attend the event
  • New Orleans Saints Jersey
  • . Thursday night, 25 athletes attended.Stahls' gets the list of confirmed attendees about two weeks in advance.Each team has its own unique font NFL , which means 32 versions of every name.The company spends at least six weeks preparing for the event.

    Despite the pressure
  • New York Giants Jersey
  • , the company considered Thursday just another day on the job. Friday, the Stahls' team was on-site at the NFL Shop in Draft Town as part of a larger team that produces on-demand personalized apparel for fans
  • New York Jets Jersey
  • ."This year went really great," Kisha said. "You're always nervous though, you know? You've still got butterflies. And (you're) happy when it's done."
