Believe it or not, the gym is a good place to meet girls. Hey! At least you have working out in common! But there are certain ways to do it smoothly. After all, you don’t want to embarrass yourself. From a girl’s point of view, these are the best tips for meeting chicks at the gym.
Hit the gym on Monday nights
Monday nights are the busiest night. After a weekend of eating out and partying, girls need to redeem themselves by jogging on the treadmill or sweating with the elliptical.
We are suckers for feeling guilty, and we love to start the week right. So find us on Mondays. Sometimes we even come in masses.
Work out close to the classrooms
Girls love fitness classes! We love yoga, kickboxing, step aerobics…We don’t know why, but being in a classroom full of other girls make us feel secure and less pressured. It’s like being in a sorority. There is an unspoken comfort about being around other like-minded women.
We often hit the weights or cardio right before or after a class. Since we are in the gym already, why not burn an extra 100 calories? It’s a perfect time for you to talk to us.
I know someone who met her husband this way. He looked up her class schedule and waited outside before class. After a few minutes of chatting, he got a date!
Don’t be a tough guy
I know the gym is full of grunting muscle heads, but please don’t act like one! I once asked a guy to help me with some weights, and he acted like such a tough dude, I was not only turned off, I was scared!
The best way to talk to a girl – not just in the gym but anywhere – is with a smile.
I know guys like to act tough with each other, but to us, that just looks silly.
Exercise gym courtesy
There are certain courtesies in the gym that’s commonly exercised. For example, when you are done with the bench or a machine, wipe it off. Also, don’t take too long resting between sets when it’s busy.
Girls value manners. We’d rather go for a guy who is considerate than a guy with big biceps.
We are not fishing for them, but after working so hard, it’s nice to receive positive reinforcements from the opposite sex. Please don’t go overboard though! A simple “nice job” will do after a tough set of squats. As long as you are sincere, we appreciate your compliment. And trust me! If you give us a compliment, we always remember you, even if we don’t act like it.
I know you didn’t join the gym to meet chicks. But if you are single and looking, the gym is a nice place to do so. Girls who work out are fit and confident, and they actually like it when guys talk to them. Just remember to take it easy, be polite and be brave! Who knows? You might just find your future wife at your next workout.
