    The recent thread on "stud times" got me to thinking.
    So what time do you go to the gym and do you think you are seen as "eye candy" by others? Have you been aware you are being checked out by others, gay or straight?


    I usually go to the gym from about 5:30 or 6:00 p.m. to about 7:15 or 7:30 p.m. depending on the day. I know I'm being checked out by others there, usually men who are guests. I'm not that tuned into the whole thing and I'm there to exercise, but it is a little weird to get up and see someone staring at you.

    My YMCA is mostly straight and into families, but there are some gay men... and I know of one who checked me out in detail and I never knew he even existed until later.

    I posted else where that I had gotten a total body compliment from a good looking guy at the gym a couple of weeks ago. It is the first time that I realized that anyone was really noticing me....and that I am apparently looking good...even on "candid camera."

    Maybe they are checking to be sure you arent Rick Santorum...

    Frothy mix of WHAT?

    Considered a stud? are you serious? When I used to go to the gym I never was noticed by anyone gay or straight. My body was not quite muscular enough to be a stud.

    Well, I go to the gym around lunchtime, and the dogs stare at me the whole time.

    My regular bike ride is on a popular route, 5 miles of which is bikes & pedestrians only. On a typical day, I pass 90% of the people that I encounter and get passed by 10%. A couple of weeks ago, a pace line of women tried to chase me down. I escaped by out-climbing them, but was too exhausted to work for the rest of the day. I could swear I overheard something along the lines of "we've gotta keep up with that ass!"

    It could have been a compliment, or something else, I suppose.

    I go to the gym to workout. It is that simple. I prefer to go when there are less people to fight over machines and free weights with. I tend to get a lot of questions about my workout but they are always technical and I am usually more then happy to help a girl or guy out.

    I think it's funny that I get called a "stud", I just say thanks!! It's funny though 'cause quite a few guys that I have met at the gym ALL said the same thing... "Every time I saw you, I could have sworn you were straight!!" I'll take it as a compliment!

    i usually go to the gym like 9pm only cuz it is too crowded earlier in the evening and yes i've seen guys and girls check me out but of course girls are girls so whatev and the guys that are clocking me well it is kinda hard to tell if they're lookin' at me 'cuz they're checking out my physical build or they're checkin' me out' hahaha... my gym is blue-collar straight so i don't really think with my dick while i'm at the gym... could get me into trouble!

    i go to the gym at 6:30am. guys do look at me, but it's only because they want to use the piece of equipment i'm on. i'd say they consider me more of an obstacle than eye candy.

    I am usually at the gym around 2:30 or 3. I don't think too many guys check me out - living in LA, there are so many amazing bodies packed in a gym that it's really hard to stand out or compare.

    My gym is about 70% black men, with maybe 15% on the down low. The rest are married white guys, about 25% of which play discreetly in the sauna.

    Most of the guys in my gym are about how much they can lift in one rep, not about building their bodies into the best, most attractive form. I lift plenty heavy, but I remind them, it is not about the weight, but what the weight does to change your body.

    Am I eye candy? MMM only with my clothes off lol.

    my gym is about 50% white 25% asian and 25% other. Most are straight some have bisexual streamroom activity.

    I really don't see many guys checkin me out so much. It's never that packed so you can't be really discreet about it.

    I have seen one realjock guy there, He's ok but alittle too wild for me.

    I am completely oblivious if anyone is checking me out while I'm working out as I am completely oblivious to others while they are working.

    I wouldn't consider myself sweet on anyones eyes. I'd be surprised if someone actually tried chatting me up or sneeking a peek at me while working out. I truly am in my own little world when I work out.

    I either go very early, between 5:30-6:00 a.m. or later in the evening, after 8. On my days off I go whenever. Lots of steady, regular members at my gym and I guess we're tired of checking each other out.

    Must resist urge to talk about my studlyness. Must resist urge...must resist...resistance is futile!

    OK, the other day, there was a hot guy, beautiful bod, cute face, tan, nice tattoos. Yes, working calves, too. Thank god some guys hit their lower half.

    I'd have to say I was second place to him. Yay! I'm Number Two.

    That never comes out right.

    I go pretty late (around 8:30pm) and have the place pretty much to myself - about every other night. I also swim 1000 yards the other nights. I see a hand full of regular guys - most of them in great shape - so I'm just an average guy there!

    I get guys asking about my routines a lot - and I'm happy to answer questions. Guys check other guys out in the gym - doesn't bother me a bit - I take it as a compliment.

    I know from what my running partner says that I am definitely checked out. One of the workers at the front desk told me that all the women up front think im hot. I just think she is being nice. I do catch some stares from guys but I dont know if they are just checking out my form or checking me out.

    I have to admit, I find this hard to believe. I'll bet the str8 guys think you're eye-candy, but they're too icon_confused.gif and threatened to admit it to themselves. OK, that's a sweeping generalization, but generalizations are true some of the time.

    I go to the gym between 8 and 9pm. I'm definitely not eye-candy. Eye-celery, maybe: tall, slim, crunchy.

    Usually, I think I'm the only gay at the gym.

    God no!icon_eek.gifI'm the poorly dressed Fag, spending the first 20 minutes on the treadmill trying to figure out where to place those stray hairs.
