Four Ways Guys Creep Girls Out at the Gym

Coach Austin and his Top 4 Ways Guys Creep Out Girls at the Gym

Being a member of the male species I cannot deny that when an attractive woman comes into the gym temptation will arise to go ahead and “appreciate the scene.”

An occasional glance is expected, however, there is a time and place for everything and the gym, to me, is not a setting to try your chance at love. It is a place of focus, hard work, and you vs. yourself.

As a gym owner I have witnessed the ways in which guys try, and fail, to get a girl’s attention while working out, and make themselves into a gym creep.

This has brought us to this…


Gym goer being overly sexual with a lifter

4 ways guys creep out the ladies at the gym.

There are probably more. Ladies, please let us know.


If you stare so hard you hope your infrared vision will burn off the overpriced lululemon sports bra your poor victim has bought and wore to the gym, you’re not doing it right. If you catch yourself getting stuck on some girl’s assets chances are she already saw you and has labeled you a “creepy ass mofo” which decreases your chances of any acknowledgment from her from 1% to  minus 9000%. “It’s under 9000!?!?!”

Leering and Grunting

Grunting while staring will not make your situation any better bro. It amazes me that some fellas think grunting will totally get the ladies to throw their panties at them as if it is the ultimate mating call. It may work for Koalas, but I have no idea about humans. If this were the case you would hear an endless amount of grunting at clubs, raves, and wherever the nightlife takes you.

Fun Grunting Fact: Grunting has  been shown to improve your power output during lifting.

Leering while Flexing

Producing your double bicep pose as you stare off into the distance at a woman who has no idea who the hell you are is a great way to display the “Look how sexy I think I am because you are there for me to stare at while you look at me flexing showing you how sexy I think I am!”

This is also a great way to show what you look like when your super constipated, a great look that attracts only the rarest beauties of the land.

Leering while Smiling

This only says one thing “I am going to kill you, with pillows…..tee hee tee hee!”

So guys, have some respect for yourself and the other people in the gym. Everyone’s there to work hard, work out, make progress.

    I would love to get the conversation going further. I am married and not interested in any other romantic relationships but just a man’s presence at the gym seems to make women feel uncomfortable. I tried being friendly and smiling at some women today and I got the same reaction as chucky with a chainsaw would have. The guys smile back, maybe converse a little. I’m not starring at anyone. I actually just want to have a relaxing workout as well without being made to feel like a creep. Ladies, how do we non creep guys help you to feel comfortable? I’m not interested in making friends just want everyone to feel comfortable, any suggestions?

      I’m happy to have this conversation with you – as a women myself I would like to ask a few questions first before I give you my personal opinion..
      First of all – what is it that makes you want to talk to people at the gym, are you after making friends? If so the gym doesn’t seem like a great place… Why would you need to mention you’re married – rules are the same for everybody regardless of their marital status? Are you talking about smiling at people you often see at the same time/same day? Or just randomly when you go?

      On a personal note, I would honestly say…Don’t talk to me in the gym unless there’s a reason to or very occasionally afterwards! I am there to workout and workout I will. I am not there to talk to you, my neighbour or anybody else. Am I wearing headphones? That means I don’t want to talk to you. Am I busy working out? That means I want to focus on it…
      This sounds harsh but really as a women, and with me quite a few womxn, I feel vulnerable at the gym. I’m sweaty, red, hot, bothered and wearing sports clothes.. All I want is to get in, do my thing and get out.. Am I standing around drinking water for more than 60 seconds? Then maybe i’m having a break and you might say hello or smile but again – Am I on my phone? Then I don’t want to talk to you…

      Legit you can ask me if I’m nearly done, you can ask for help using a machine, I will spot you where needed, but I am not at the gym for you, your benefit or to become friends with anybody 🙂

      As a married woman who lives in a very gym heavy, college town, I will say this, going to the gym alone as a woman is a terrifying experience. Anytime I’ve gone alone, I’ve worn a wedding ring, even when I was single. And that barely stops the leering, smiling, flexing, and again leering. I once had a man ask why I wasn’t wearing makeup. Makeup. While working out. I have also seen “trainers” helping women do little more than bounce while actually helping the men (luckily they were fired quickly).

      My next question is, why are you trying to talk to women at the gym when we already feel exposed and naked? Do you have any female friends? Ask them why this is a bad idea, seriously. Or ask your wife. Seriously. I don’t care if my husband makes a new female friend nor does he care of I make a new male friend. But you can best believe I’m gonna ask a few questions as to why he felt the need to chat up only women at the gym. If you truly want to be friends with women, don’t try to talk to them when they are working out. And if you are truly a nice guy, you will understand it’s not about you, it’s about the creepers we deal with every single day at every single place we go.

      But again I have to ask why do you feel the need to make female friends at the gym and how does your wife feel about that?
