    I've noticed lately that a number of members of my gym are working out with their sunglasses on. It's not that bright in the gym, and they are not celebrities. wtf... can anyone explain why this would be something one would want to do while working out?

    It's easier to stare at the hotties without being noticed.

    I think it has the opposite effect. It only makes it more obvious that they're checking people out. icon_confused.gif

    I prefer to wear sunglasses on chest days because otherwise the lights are shining directly in my eyes on flat bench, declines, and inclines. I'll admit it looks silly, and I don't give a damn. On other days I don't wear them.

    Some people need to wear them due to eye problems.

    But it makes it less obvious as to "who" they're checking out.

    Maybe it's to deter people from approaching them and interrupting their workouts - kind of like ear buds for the eyes.

    Hey, that's a good excuse. I'll use that if someone asks why I'm wearing them. Hopefully they won't notice me checking them out while I use that excuse. icon_biggrin.gif

    I've seen guys talking on their Bluetooth ear pieces at the gym (even though my gym has a no cell phones on the floor policy). I always wonder, "What is so important that can't wait and who is on the other end of the conversation for that long?"

    Sunglasses inside though automatically = tool.

    Then again, maybe they'll all just Horatio Caine:

    How about a bright yellow compression top, compression shorts, flip flops, and expensive sunglasses?

    So it looks less conspicuous that they're on meth?

    You'd think juggling the 120 lb dumbbells would be an indication.

    It's dangerous because they can't see clearly.
    The first time somebody gets injured and sues the gym, there will be a no sunglasses policy.

    sxydrkhair saidI saw some guys on the treadmill wearing a sweater on and it is 100 degree outside.


    I wear sweaters during the summer.

    If you're such a fashion victim that you have to wear your sunglasses while you're throwing metal weights around icon_confused.gif

    Meh, sunglasses don't cover up staring nor crying effectively (anymore), that's why I have long hair; I can just pull it over my face and look aaaall I want noone notices a thing, highly recommend those icon_razz.gif
