The Jim

I know I’ve read several people’s posts on this topic before, but I thought I’d just weigh in on it myself. The topic is: People Who Stare at the Gym. As I see it, there are three types of people that go to the gym: People Who are There to Work Out, People Who are There to Socialize, and People Who Stare. Last night some of the People Who Stare were taking it a little too far and even I felt uncomfortable. I’m there to workout. So, stop staring at Me! I know you’re all turned on and hot and bothered by looking at my buffed, sweaty, naked body, doing squats and lunges, but control yourself!

Naked?! No wonder they're staring!!

My Jim has tvs over all of the cardio equipment, so even though I have my iPod like a normal person, there are people who bring nothing to listen to and stare at the tv which is hanging 4 inches over my head - of course, it took me a few visits there to realize this, I thought they were all staring at my hair or a giant zit on my forehead... next time maybe I should look for a tv before I throw a sweaty towel at someone on a treadmill across from me... I mean, if they ever lift the restraining order and let me go back...

I'm with Sarah. If you are naked doing lunges and squats you are obviously looking for the attention.

If you're naked doing lunges, I'm staring. Sorry, that's just the way it is.

I'm typically one of the socialize/work out people. I do both. If I can't socialize, I'm not going. It's just too damn boring if I can't talk.

Yeah I have the problem in the locker room. Uh, hello? If I wanted old fat guys to stare at my junk I'd go to one of those gay bath houses!

Then there was the time I sat my naked ass down in the steam room and once the mist cleared a bit I saw two guys sitting across from me jacking off and staring right at me. That was all kinds of uncomfortable.

LOL!!!!! This is why I have never joined the gym up until a few months ago after being scared about dealing with all the staring bullshit. I HATE gym rats! This is why I need an Ipod. I want to ignore everyone. Tune them all out. I hate the feeling that when I walk by some stupid muscle guy that he is staring at my ass. I feel like my ass is on fire b/c his laser beam is burning me.

Wait a second, are you worried about the ladies staring or the dudes? Hmmm...

sarah - I'm just trying to be comfortable.

c8 - I think I'm one of the only people at the gym (and possibly the world) that doesn't have an ipod.

ogo - whatever!

qop - I've belonged to my gym for about 5 years now. I've probably talked to one or two people the entire time.

chuck - that happens to me all the time, except with chicks. uh huh.

steph - I think you missed the joke in where I claim to work out naked. Or maybe you didn't and it just wasn't funny. (never!)

Can I come to your gym? I want to see the nekkid show, although, I'm not touching or sitting any place after you sit there. I need that barrier of shorts for peace of mind

I don't ever talk to people at the gym.I listen to my iPod and read the captions on the bottom of the tv screen.I'm a snob.

Steph said...

tim - actually, I did get it. That's why I LOL'd!!!!!!!!!!!!! then it made me start thinking about the sick pervos. Thanks alot. Anyway, i'm sure that you doing naked squats would be a pleasant site to see. haha

A little less lip and a little more flex, please. That's it. Nice.
