I haven't seen men with tiny shorts, but there is a girl whose shorts and panties are so tiny that I have literally seen everything she's got. I did not need to see that.

No fashion faux pas at the gym but there is a guy who will just text on every machine. He can't just work out and hurry up, it's annoying. Between every rep this guy is seriously sitting there texting away. I've got places to go, hurry up!

The one that cracks me up at my gym is this guy in his 40's that wears his shades while he works out. I guess his future's so bright...

The guy in the tiny shorts at my gym likes to scream at the top of his lungs while lifting weights. It has gotten to where I can't stop laughing when he is there. The good thing is that laughing burns fat too!

Now that the nicer weather is here, Fabio Dude is back! He walks near my neighbourhood, long flowy bleached hair, teeeeny skin tight wife-beater and black & white striped spandex shorts -- and he's so muscular his arms swing wide when he walks. Now, that's funny enough in and of itself, but add to it that he's about 5' tall and WOW lol My DH says the guy would kill his mother to be a foot taller LOL

There was one guy a month or so back... he came to lift heavy weights in flip-flops :dizzy:. And when he was doing work outs where he had his feet off the ground - his flip-flops came off and he was barefoot. Geeze...

There's really only one guy at my gym who wears short shorts. He's a runner. He's got nice legs and he's cute. I forgive his fondness for the short shorts. ;)

We have a girl who only wears a sport's bra, no shirt. She's not very overweight but she's got lots of stretch marks and loose skin and really needs a shirt.

There's also a guy that wears jeans and workboots to his workout. It looks so uncomfortable.

Some sunglasses have radios and even cameras in them. We went to the circus last week, and my husband was able to record all two hours of it on video using his sunglasses.

Not saying that this guy is recording people working out. Maybe he's hung over or sensitive to bright lights.

Oakley makes a pair of glasses with a radio in them. It's still weird to wear your sunglasses while you're inside though. They were designed for outdoor runners and cyclists.

These stories are cracking me up! I'm glad I'm not the only one that has to endure it. And I'm also REALLY glad that my gym has a dress code. No working out in just sports bras and you have to have appropriate shoes on, and no jeans (although that'd be better than the super teeny shorts.)

I understand running shorts, I really do. My DH is a runner and they definitely serve their purpose. Just not when you're on an elevated surface in front of a bunch of people and don't have any spandex on underneath them! :p

Because looking impenetrable, remote & unemotional takes practice. Hours & hours of practice.

You are clearly not his targeted demographic, or you'd be thinking to yourself: "He's so hot ... because he's so unknowable, so unobtainable ... so authoritative .... like a state trooper about to give a ticket ... GOD, HOW I WANT HIM."

I mean, you must be thinking about your own workout or something.

I am so glad I go to a womens old gym. Now if only I could last longer than the 77 year old on the ellipical next to me, who actually sings while she works out.

At my gym, we have:

1) The Bundled-Up Guy. He's a rather slender fellow, and wears long navy tights under his shorts, then a t-shirt & a heavyweight gray fleece hoodie sweatshirt over that. He looks like he's prepared for a run in the Arctic. But no, it's May, and he's over in the free weight area, literally sweating it off.

2) The Preppie. He's actually rather good-looking, with thick blonde hair that swoops around his forehead in a way that Donald Trump only dreams about. He wears extraordinary long puffy workout pants. Almost parachute pants. They are like pajamas. They are pale pink with a chartreuse green pattern. He was on a machine near me the other day & I saw they had little whales all over them. (Oh, Muffy, darling, please pass me a T&T when I'm done with my workout.)

3) The Last Surviving 80s Mullet in My Village. This guy makes his black, thick, slightly curly Sicilian mane look even more impressive by dousing it in some kind of oily styling product. His cologne is quite strong. This is not a look that is popular in my village. (The look around here is generally #2, just above, but lighter on the little cavorting whales.)

Minus the silly purple tie, of course. Seriously, I never noticed it before, and now I can't take our troopers seriously because they have FUCHSIA colored ties.

We just have a bunch of boys that look like they should be on Jersey shore and bunches of high school girls that just come for the tanning.

I haven't seen anybody strange in the daytime, recently I went to a nighttime Zumba class. This guy dancing next to me looked like a 70s porn star, wifebeater shirt, covered in hair and trying to chat up every woman in the place. It was 91 degrees and the A/C wasn't working, and at one point he said something about joining him in the pool afterwards LOL

**Sob! ** Nobody that interesting at my gym. We do have Brad who is about 67 and has tattoos. He wears a muscle shirt and grunts a lot. That's about as exciting as it gets.

Gotta love this thread. I live for vicarious pleasure.

I think Saef's Bundled Up Guy was at my gym yesterday. He was on the machine in front of me wearing sweatpants, a tshirt and a sweatshirt and sweating like mad; just pouring all over the machine!

Bundled Up Guy was here this morning. He had his woolly hat on too. You know, the one with ear flaps.

Brad's cousin is at my gymn. He's covered in tattoos and tells stories of the Canadian Interior. (Remember this is in the UK.) I call him Old Timer. I know his sister-in-law, as it happens.

We have one of the Titchy Shorts Men here too. For heaven's sake, why? Is it to do with hygiene? Or possibly naturism?

Short shorts runner guy can't run--gym is doing maintenance on all of the treadmills. So he chose to use an elliptical today. The one in front of the AMT I was using. Still a nice view :D
