    Just got back from my favorite local sushi place and was chatting with the chef, whom I've become semi-friends with.

    Turns out he was in the gym today, working out right beside me, even talked to each other a few minutes, and neither of us recognized each other. FML icon_lol.gif

    This probably happens more often than you think. At the gym, you tend to focus on people's bodies. But outside the gym, the focus goes back to the face. icon_biggrin.gif

    That is very true. I also met the GNC dude there today. Watch me not recognize him when I go to GNC tomorrow. icon_lol.gif

    Maybe you'd recognize him if you met him at a bus stopicon_eek.gif

    I used to work summers as a lifeguard. When I ran into people away from the pool I would always hear the same stupid comment, "Oh, I didn't recognize you with your clothes on." NOT FUNNY.

    When I sat down at the sushi bar and he said "were you at the gym today?"
    We both got a good laugh out of it.
    I'm actually meeting him there today to help with his workout. He just started two weeks ago.

    Don't feel bad man, Ive done that before. I worked with this guy one time and at work he always wore baggy shirts and baggy pants, but you could tell he was really lean and worked out. He was a major hottie!! He wore glasses and etc.

    then one day I was running on the treadmill at the gym and this incredibly ripped HOT guy comes up next to me and starts running beside me on the treadmill, he says "hey brian" I swear I almost fell off the damn treadmill!!!

    I finally realized after about 5 minutes it was him in his workout clothes and no glasses....I finally had to turn the treadmill off and leave due to circumstances that were potentially "rising"

    Sometimes I don't even really see my clients in the gym. I was walking out once and had a client call out to me as she walked down the hall the other direction. Many of us are in a totally different zone when we are in the gym.
    No biggie.

    The sushi chef may have been in your shoes yesterday, since I normally wear non-revealing clothes at the restaurant.
    I was already pumped up when he got to the gym... arm veins showing, abs popping through the yellow compression shirt, chest pumped from presses, etc. I must admit, this new physique even turns ME on sometimes now...quite a change from last year. icon_lol.gif

    So true! Only difference is this is a really small town. I've only been here 2.5 months and already talked to over half the guys in the gym. It's starting to become more of a social place rather than just a place to workout...which is actually the whole point of the Y. icon_wink.gif

    I suppose gyms can be that way. Our greater Wichita Y's are some of the best in the country, several are huge and totally up to date. Even though I go to the slightly dated East branch (1996) and smaller, I try and keep conversations to a minimum. I do have several friends who like to pull me aside and relate every event of the past week. Fortunately that isn't often.

    I just know I'll be glad to get back to my home gym where I can turn off the phone and have no interruptions during the workout...and no waiting for machines...and no endless conversations with distracting hotties...and no rushing to get there before closing...and no more wearing clothes while I workout.
    3.5 more week in GA then I'm back home to my clothing optional home gym. Yay! icon_biggrin.gif

    My risk is that I take my glasses off when working out. After my workout, I hopped on the treadmill for 25 minutes. A pretty well-built guy was staring at me from about 20 feet away and I was getting a thrill out of it until I realized he was waiting for me to recognize him. icon_confused.gif I finally nodded to him in greeting as my ego deflated (just a little bit).
