If you are in the bathroom/lockeroom freshening up your make up before you go work out, then yes, I am laughing at you.

Ok, definatly not freshining up, but never thought to wash it off. I don't wear foundation though, so not worried about sweating through it! Maybe I should start washing before though...can't be very good for my skin :P

I usually use one of those facial wipes to take off my foundation without messing up my eye makeup. I'll go without foundation in public, but not without mascara, even to the gym!

I always quickly wash my face in the sink. I don't worry about eye makeup, but I take off all powder/concealer before working out.

I mostly only wear tinted moisturizer and a little pressed powder and not very much of either, so I don't bother to take it off as it's mostly moisturizer and I don't really sweat anyway ( ) I don't wear eye makeup and all that stuff every day anyway, only for special occassions, so there's not much to take off and I never even thought of doing that.

I do have to wear cute clothes to get in the mood and feel good. They make some really nice workout outfits.

I haven't gone to the gym in a while though because I do all my workouts at home and I was only going there for kickboxing class, which I had to put on hold since getting pregnant. And I am going to take prenatal classes at a separate place, so I probably won't go back to the gym again till I'm ready to lose baby weight, and who knows what I'll look like or be wearing then????

I've done some goofy stuff at the gym.

I go really early most days, around 4:30 am or so.

I get dressed half asleep and in the dark so I'm not waking up the rest of the family.

Once I put my shorts on inside out and backwards and didn't notice until I got on the elliptical machine and noticed that my shorts kept biting me. I look down and see the big old tag staring back at me!!

I was so mortified because the stupid changing area is all the way on the other side of the gym.

I snatched that waistband up as high under my shirt as I could (which kinda hurt) and walked really fast to the locker room.

What an idiot!!

I never wear makeup to the gym since I go first thing. I look pretty scary!!

I've also fallen off of the bench in step class because I was too busy checking out what someone else was doing!!

As an owner, I have a super story that happened just this week...

Everyone knows you kind of need some things to make exercise machines work, right?

So in walks a woman, with one artificial leg, AND a bad shoulder. She later informed my partner that she has a condition where her body grows tumors that eat away her bones

It was really difficult for her to not say, you know what, we can't do anything for you. She tried her hardest to adapt every exercise so that the woman could do something, but realized that you need at least one half of your body to work.

She was really nice and quite determined though!

This is a true story.

The poor woman! Probably she should have gone for physical therapy. They can usually teach you some exercises that you can do at a gym too.

For a moment, the thought was "this has to be a practical joke." She took it very seriously and that was that.

I can understand that some people may be coming directly from work and still have their makeup on, BUT, I've seen PUT ON makeup in the changing room

I just joined a gym here and so far so good. Its probably a cultural thing and I'm not really offended, but women that insist on staying naked while they do everything in the locker room kinda weird me out

Once, there was this girl who was already dressed, who went to the mirror, lifted up her shirt with no bra under, got a good look at her boobs and rib cage and walked out. Very strange.

I haven't encountered this here, but when I was in school I used to hate the guys that come up and comment on my form (I lift a lot) as an obvious pick up. My solution for this has been wearing my ipod.

Another time I was on an eliptical and some jerk looked over at the monitor and said do you really think you burnt all those calories?

I've got a new one from today:

the elderly ladies love to talk to the younger women and I have no problem with that, I like talking to them, it's just kind of hard to do that when they're standing buck naked next to you and of course you have no idea where to look.

At least wrap a towel around yourself, you may be comfortable in a naked conversation, but the person you're talking to may not.

Now someone's going to tell me to suck it up and look at the ceiling next time. :P

I cannot work out wearing makeup. Just the thought of it completely grosses me out. It's right up there with sleeping in your makeup. Yucko.

So yes, I would be looking at you going, "EW! How can she workout with makeup on!!!"

Of course you'd be looking at me going, "Damn, she looks like HELL."

There was a woman at the gym I used to go to, who would always use the communal hairdriers in the locker room to BLOWDRY HER CROTCH after her shower. Disgusting...

5:30, but yeah. Even if I go after work, though, or if we walk, I have to take the makeup off.

where to start!?

Well, I might possibly go to the most run down and smelliest 24 Hour Fitness ever. The place stinks and seems to have no sign of ventilation. Machines are always taken or broken. And patrons do not wipe up after themselves. It sucks, but it is close and convienient.

I'm a regular at the step classes and unfortunately there are 2 other men that are too. One of these men (M1) smells like awful BO and wears, what looks to be, the same sweatsuit every single time. He loves to step near the fan so his stench is dispersed through out the class. The other man (M2) smells like mild BO but mix it up with some OLD SPICE after shave. He likes to step in the middle of the classroom and like to "increase the cardio intensity" by flailing his arms releasing the nausiating stench from his Old Spiced armpits. When they collectively stink, it is a feat to get through the class without gagging.

M2 is a nice guy and I feel bad for him. M1 seems to be a real a-hole and seems to enjoy stinkin' up the room.
