    For the first time today, a lady said that I look like I might work out! Result! My progress is paying off!

    Anyone else had any experiences like this?

    Though I have not had an experience exactly like what you describe, it's always nice when someone compliments the way you look, whether it's a snazzy suit you're wearing or how well you fill out your shirt. Keep it up!

    Great feeling when someone brings it up, especally if its out of the blue.

    Congratulations!

    Twice recently. At my last gym a gay member, who turned out to be the former membership director there, said "he liked watching me work out." (Does that literal workout compliment count? I assume he was referencing my strict form. *cough*) Also recently I was asked if I was a personal trainer. Loved that!

    Recently some high school kids were at my gym and one of them made a point of telling me: "Wow, dude, impressive workout. You'e pretty strong...." and the second he started talking, I knew this was going to be the follow-on "...for a guy your age." Me: icon_biggrin.gif, then on a dime icon_sad.gif

    It was actually funny, because I think the young kid truly was impressed and didn't mean it as a backhanded compliment. Still, would have loved if those last few words hadn't come out his mouth!

    Yup, happens all the time. Get used to people asking for advice and quick fixes but then arguing with you and making excuses for not following your advice.icon_lol.gif

    guess not
    had a man ask me where I worked out and before I could even answer he interrupted saying, "guy like you probable doesn't have to work out".'
    Not sure if it was a complement or what...little guys can be so insecure, didn't want to do anything to make it worse.

    An acquaintance of mine came over on Wednesday to play football with my bro and his newly established team. As soon as he saw me he went "Bro you look amazing!"

    I was beaming!!

    Yesterday, I went to eat with my good bud. I was there, freezing, and standing in front of the fire. This guy says to me, "How old are you?" Then, he says, "How old do you think I am?" I said, "52." His response: "Damn." I said, "How old are you?" His response: "71". My response: "Wow!" He looked like he was 40, and had been working out for almost 60 years. We got to talking. He gave me his business card, and he, and his wife invited me and the boy, to Thanksgiving and Christmas. Yes, there are still some cool folks around. I was so inspired by this 71 year old man. Amazing.

    On the gym floor, I get checked out, and complimented daily.

    In the locker rooms, I get the gazers. When one is especially bad, I'll walk over, shake their hand, and say "Chuck Gudgel here. Pleased to meet you." They about poop that I take it away from them, creepy folks that they are.

    I have, before, told gazers to "knock it the fuck off, you creep." Usually, though, I'll just intimidate them. Take my shirt off, and introduce myself. LOL. True stuff.

    I had a gazer when I did chest two nights back...He couldn't stop. I had my shirt off, and turned around and said "How are ya?" (I giggled.) "Good, good" Creep.

    LA Fitness has notices on the monitors about gazing not being classy, but, folks do it.

    Yesterday, at LA Fitness, Carrollton. (5'5", 208#, needing a shave, after doing shoulders)

    "Do you work out?" Um...yeah. :-)

    I love the classic: "I don't wanna' get big. Just toned." Of course, I tell them to eat, and they worry about being fat. It's fucking near worthless cause.

    I take guys staring at me as a compliment. Specially when they look away real fast when I catch them at it.

    yeah, I've had men and women compliment me--great to know that my working out, running, kickboxing and cycling are paying off

    I was complimented last week, "You're looking studlier each time I see you."

    I appreciated it (and said so), but made by a woman, not a guy! *Sigh*

    i get it at work all the time and it never fails to embarrass me. i know it's supposed to be a compliment. i'm shy and quiet enough though without having to figure out how to respond to people asking how much i workout and what i do and don't eat.
