    People don't talk to me much. But when they do, it has nothing to do with my body and everything to do with what's blaring in my ears...
    "Dude, is that britney?"
    "yup"

    -i receive an uneasy stare-

    "meet me in the steam room in 10"
    "k"

    Works every time! Haha! I felt a rediculous response was appropriate for this thread...

    Do people really compliment each other at the gym? This has never happened to me. Maybe I need to go to the cruisey gay gym on Camelback.

    I only get compliments from women, mainly cougars.

    Guys usually ask me how to cut body fat, which I guess is a way indirect compliment I suppose.

    I go to a neighborhood gym where guys are straight buff and simple

    @Firebran: there is a huge difference between being socially polite and cruising. Cruising would be standing behind you on the smith machine and grab my dick while smiling at you on the mirror.


    It's a troll. It's trolling you. "Block Him" and "Ignore His Posts" is the most relevant, effective, and efficient use of your mouse clicks.

    "It is forbidden to complement anybody at the gym" seems to be an unwritten, unspoken rule.

    However, on the street, guys (I assume stricon_cool.gif chat me up all the time about my cut and definition (gay guys would NEVER do such a thing).

    I usually go to the gym for swimming, yoga classes... and the sauna - where I tend to receive most of the compliments! That's where I do my yoga stretches and I hear most about how lean and flexible my body is - essentially from women and older gents.

    The MOST effective behavior is not giving a fuck about what other people think. icon_wink.gif

    I've never been to a gym that WASN'T that way...even back in the 90's in a small town in Arkansas.

    As long as you don't come across as overly cruisy (aka, creepy), you can have any guy in the gym who's bi or gay. icon_cool.gif

    novo saidMeh. I usually attract a crowd of admirers as soon as I walk through the door. Men, women, gays, straights, they're all trailing after me for a peek at my latest muscle growth. I try not to encourage them, you know? to stay focused on my workout. But it generally only takes a set of biceps curls before they're clapping and hooting and throwing me high-fives. I've learned to live with it. But it's pretty annoying.

    Unless I'm having one of those days. You know, when a guy actually needs some attention in the gym. Something to get his juices flowing, to push him through a hard-core workout. And, wouldn't you know it, it's usually these days when the audience--ahem, other gym patrons, seem preoccupied with their own workouts. (I know, right?) But, it's all good. I resort to Plan B: After a few sets, to get good and swole, I start posing in front of the mirrors beside the free weights. If that doesn't get everyone's attention, I add some sound effects with each flex--loud bursts of air, sprinkled with a few under-the-breath "Yeahs!" as I look myself over with satisfaction.

    Still nothing? No problem. As I flex and make my sounds, I start darting my eyes dramatically over to whomever happens to be watching me (sometimes only from the corner of their eyes), inviting them into my moment, so to speak. This almost always does the trick. And It only takes a few compliments to get me through my work out.

    There is a Plan C, which I've only had to resort to a few times. That's when I progress from darting eyes to some verbal prompting while I flex in front of the mirrors. Something like, "You like that?" or, "How you like them apples?" which I sometimes have to say pretty loudly if everyone happens to be wearing headphones. (I know, right?) Sometimes it just takes a little coaxing. All I'm asking for is a little recognition, a little appreciation for all the work I'm putting in, you know?

    lol


    I love your sense of sarcasm! May I add for the original OP:

    Plan D (Plan of Last resort) - post on RJ how admired you are.

    Wide shoulders, defined arms , huge chest, nice traps, great lean torso, love it when they say ur solid,great muscle tone.


    I call shenanigans. Somebody's fishing for compliments, methinks.

    Things people might say at the gym to compliment others:
    "Looking good bro."
    "How do I get arms like those?"
    "You're making great progress. Keep it up."

    Things people don't say.
    "You have wide shoulders."
    "You have defined arms."
    "What a great, lean torso." (Torso?)


    I have also gotten "Are you taking anything?" icon_neutral.gif

    I don't talk to anyone at the gym, no one talks to me. I just do my workout without paying attention to other guys. My workout is for me important.

    What is it with all of you who don't speak to folks at the gym? I understand the gym is a place to workout and I do that as well. But I was struck this week at the gym by how most people are so anti-social in the sense that they avoid human contact. And then so many of you mention the same. Yet, we'll be social online with folks...it's a real breakdown for humanity when we are so busy with our gadgets that we can't be bothered to interact with others face-to-face. Being friendly and open to others is not going to make your workout take longer. And if so, by maybe a few minutes.

    Ok, I'm off my soapbox now.

    And to answer the question of the OP, the most bold (and cruisey) compliment I've ever gotten at the gym - "That's a beautiful piece of meat you have there," as I was toweling dry from my shower.

    1. "What do you do for your triceps?"

    2. "What do you do for your abs?"

    I go to the city rec center (its really close and a good price) and there are a bunch of senior citizens that frequent the center. One day after I had done some squats and went to get a drink from the fountain an old 70+ year old lady said to me "I just want you to know that you have a really nice tushy"

    haha I was both flattered and moderately creeped out

    Almost none - since I'm usually focused on doing my work out and not talking to guys. Once in awhile though, I've had a few guys over the years ask how to get their legs to look like mine.............or abs, shoulders etc. This is rare though. I will stop and help a guy in these cases.

    "I'd totally bone you; if it was totally okay to hook up with guys where I lift weights, hang out several times a week, and get sexy all week long". And also, "If having sex with you and then realizing that we didn't have much in common, and that I didn't like you that much didn't lead me to being a dramatic bitch at our mutually shared gym; I'd fuck your brains out on a tread mill now!", is another one I like hearing once in a while from the obvious trolls at the gym. lol, j.k. icon_question.gif?icon_confused.gif
