How To Meet Girls At The Gym While Working Out
If you are a exercise fanatic who enjoys the gym, odds are you spend a good chunk of time in there.
In fact, its not unusual for guys to spend anywhere from an hour to two hours a day working out!
From personal experience, when I work out, Ill be at the gym five days a week, alternating between an hour of cardio and an hour of weight training.
And that time at the gym adds up! Some people even go further by joining classes, getting a personal trainer, and hanging out at the local juice bar. So its no surprise that because some of us spend so much time at the gym, wed like to know how to meet women there!
After all, its not just the fact that some guys spend a lot of time working out at the gym, theres also the fact that some very attractive women spend a lot of time there too! (In an effort to remain as attractive as possible, of course.)
But as much as it makes sense to try and meet girls during your workout, it can seem like a very daunting task! But if you know a few simple tricks for meeting women at the gym, you might be surprised to find that its actually easier to do than you think.
Lets go through the tips now...
TIP #1: Taking Advantage Of Cardio
Typically, people will do cardio workouts for anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour. Lets face it, thats a LONG time to do nothing but run in place!
If you see an attractive girl youd like to meet doing cardio, see if you can get on a machine next to her to do your cardio. This will give you the opportunity to start up a conversation with her.
Youll be amazed at how easy it is to talk to someone when theyre doing a cardio workout, and thats because cardio is BORING. The girl will typically be watching closed-caption TV, flipping through a magazine, or listening to music on an iPod. But talking to someone can pass the time just as fast, and as long as your approach is smooth, shell be more than willing to chat with you!
TIP #2: Find Out Her Playlist
One of the biggest obstacles guys face at the gym is competing with iPods. People like to listen to music when they work out, and seeing a pair of ear-plugs can scare you off from starting a conversation.
But Ive found that actually asking the woman about the music she listens to when working out is a great way to not only get her to listen to you instead of music, but a good way to quickly bond with her over mutual interests.
The way I do it, is Ill try and get the girls attention, either by waving at her or tapping her on her shoulder. This will get her to pause her music and look at me. Then Ill say...
"Sorry to bother you, do you mind if I ask what music youre listening to?"
When she answers you, you can respond with:
"My playlist is getting a bit stale, and I havent been able to keep up with new bands. What sort of music do you prefer to listen to?"
This is a great lead in, and I can start bringing up my favorite bands, concerts Ive attended, etc. Its a great way to engage her and keep her attention on you!
TIP #3: Offer Advice
Often times, youll see girls working out throughout the gym on various machines or weights. A great way to start up conversations with them is to offer them advice or feedback on their form.
Just make sure that its "friendly" suggestions, and that youre not telling them theyre doing things wrong.
People at the gym who work out without personal trainers usually have mistakes in how they are using machines or performing a certain exercise. So if you can offer them some tips on how to make their workout more effective, theyll actually really appreciate it!
And once you offer them your advice, you can start asking them about their training goals, and carry on the conversation from there.
This is a very effective way of meeting girls who are weight training.
TIP #4: Join A Class
Most gyms offer a variety of classes you can sign up for. These range from yoga, to spinning, to dancing, etc.
Heres a tip - most of these classes are filled by a majority of WOMEN. So taking a class can give you a tremendous opportunity to meet girls!
Not only that, but many classes can become social functions, and give you excuses to talk and chit-chat with girls. I cant tell you how many girls Ive dated because I was the only guy in their class at the gym.
Youll also notice a lot of the girls in your classes also work out at the gym, so you have a great way of meeting them if you see them in the general training area. Just approach them and say "Hey, arent you in my spinning (or whatever) class?"
Seriously, it does not get much easier than that!
TIP #5: Take Advantage Of The Juice Bar
Most gyms nowadays have some type of juice bar, or place where you can sit down and drink a protein shake or smoothy. Take advantage of this when youre trying to meet women at the gym!
There are two ways you can utilize a juice bar...
The first is to invite women you meet while working out to join you for a drink. This is a great way to do an "instant date" after meeting a girl. Instead of letting the girl just leave after shes done working out, ask her if shed be interested in grabbing a drink with you at the smoothy bar.
Then, sit down and chit-chat with her. Its just like getting coffee together, but much quicker and easier.
Alternatively you can watch the juice bar area for attractive women who are already there. Dont hesitate to ask them to join you for a drink while there - most wont refuse and you can chat them up immediately.
All in all, there are a bunch of wonderful ways to meet women during your workout. Try different methods, and see what works for you!Thomas writes articles for adult singles looking for the online dating services.
