    Recently I was stretching out at my gym and a guy across from me was finishing up ab work on a ball... and what to my surprise... he had a Real Jock workout printout lying on the floor right next to him.

    He left before I had a chance to say anything...

    Has anyone ever met/recognized someone from Real Jock at there gym?

    I leave my RealJock printout where everyone can see it in the hope that someone will notice. So far it's attracted one straight guy who's become my gym friend, so at least it's a start. He likes it when I spot him and tell him he lifts like a girl.

    When I search on RJ for people from my town, they're pretty thin on the ground. Not quite the only gay in the village, but certainly the only RJer from my gym. icon_sad.gif

    Yes, I recognized a guy that I see at the gym regularly. I asked him about realjock and since we chat whenever I see him. We both like working out during the noon time. In fact he's agreed to play in our fantasy baseball league (need 4 more players if anyone else wants to join, it's an online league!).

    Yeah, same here, but I use discretion in approaching them.

    i've not seen any rj's yet, but i've only just started. i've seen queens from the scene, and that worries me, plus this y is incredibly aggressive with cruising. i got cruised by at least 5 people in less than 30 minutes. it's month to month so if it's too distracting i'm not obligated to stay.

    out of curiosity - i've never used gyms much, and i'm not accustomed to this type of intrusion when i'm trying to concentrate... how does one tune that out if it's literally coming from all sides?

    I have yet to encounter any even I've spoken to a few on here who say they go to my gym. I do go to the gym at really weird times though. Or maybe they wisely chose to switch gyms rather that hazard a chance encounter with me.icon_lol.gif

    I've run into 4 guys that are members, talked to a couple of them, emailed the others. That's as far as it ever went. Never seen them again.
    Still workin out

    I just joined as well, so I haven't ran into any other Real Jockers. A matter of fact most guys I talk to have never heard of the website. So I am spreading it around. I think it's starting to catch on in Texas.

    I can't leave a RealJock work out laying around when I'm working out because I think someone would laugh. icon_sad.gif

    I saw one! It was a surreal moment, he looked more handsome in person than in his profile. What makes me laugh in retrospect is that I wanted to say something and then remembered that the headline of his profile is "Are you stalking me?"

    Ya, I still haven't met any Realjockers in person yet. Someday, someday.

    I've seen one other from the site. I said nothing to him at the time, sent him a message when I saw him online here a few days later. That seemed the less-creepy way to do it, given that I was upstairs on the cardio equipment that overlooks the weight area where he was at the time.

    Maybe we need to get Jeff and co. to produce RJ tank tops and workout clothes. Could be a whole line of business. They have a really cool logo!

    Then we can spot our fellow RJers out in the world.

    I think I'll start a new thread called "RJ clothing - pick a tagline!"

    Hey that's a cool idea! I'd wear it.

    I'm convinced that I will never meet a RJ at my gym! Kansas doesn't have too many people that use this site, and since the real town that my gym is in is not even an option for me to select, I'm thinking that I'm the only one from here. Maybe I should move!

    Oh ya....plus my gym is full of either old farts, or high school kids. I actually saw a man with his oxygen tank using the treadmill. That's so weird.

    I've met a couple guys here and invited them to my gym to workout with me. The RealJock shirt is a good idea.

    Actually, I have seen someone at my gym from realjock. I've never approached him, though. I think there may be others who I've not seen on realjock yet. I don't run local searches often here.

    I've been @ the gym with another RJ member, but it wasn't by accident. He was nice enough to give me one of his guest passes while I was in town. icon_cool.gif

    I saw an RJ member at the gym the other day, but when I messaged him and said hi, he reported me to the police and the judge issued a restraining order and an ankle bracelet.

    So let that be a warning to you guys.

    Never introduce yourself to an RJ member at the gym
