    I usually work out from 8-930 pm and then go for a swim. In the past few weeks, it's been packed!!! icon_mad.gif

    What are some of the hours you guys are noticing that gym is not as full? (besides Friday and Saturday evenings!! best times ever, no one in there).

    Unfortunately, just about any time before 9pm at the French Riviera I go to means it's going to be packed. It's kinda' lame, because I don't necessarily like going that late, but it's the only way I can get in and get out in a reasonable period of time. Definitely makes me wish I had a membership to a smaller, more private gym. icon_sad.gif

    Early afternoons (before 4pm) are the best at my gym, especially on the weekends.

    My gym starts to thin out by 8, since the work crowd is leaving by then. Then it's stay at home moms & retired people until the lunch hour rush. Then from about 1-5 it's really sparse in there. Sometimes I like that, but other times I like the after 8 p.m. crowd. After the evening peak, but plenty of hot guys, most of them young enough to be my....nephews

    Afternoons like 2 to 4 are great times for me to go. Late night after 10 is normally very good as well. I have an odd work schedule so I am often up late. The 24 hour gym is nice

    When possible, I try to go in as early as I can. But I avoid the lunch hours (11-2). I go to the campus gym, so that provides a huge insight to the variables that control the gym populace. During 11-2, you'll crowd with the staff and faculty who try to workout at lunchtime, but aside from that, the gym is pretty free until around 6pm when all classes are done. Then it gets progressively more crowded right up until it closes at 11.

    So long story short, I try to get in around 2pm. Summer isn't so bad on a college campus since all the students are gone, so even the evenings aren't terrible at the moment.

    Well, I go to a small college with odd class hour, plus we don't have many swimmers at all, so it's almost always just me in the pool.
