Denim is taking over my gym. I’m not sure exactly when it happened but, in the past two weeks, Sarah (who snapped this AWESOME photo of a guy sleeping) and I have been seeing people working out in them left and right.
Sarah called last Monday “jeans day” and texted me these two pictures:
Earlier in the week, I saw a guy lifting in jeans who clearly was JUST released from prison. Avoid taking pictures of a guys working out in jeans if they have face tattoos and look as if they have spent the last “8-10″ doing nothing but lifting weights for hours upon hours a day. #JustSayin
But I did see this girl on an elliptical IN JORTS:
And I have walked past this poster in the stairwell a bazillion times and never noticed that the guy in it is IN JEANS.
Is Golds Gym is sending out subliminal messages and encouraging this atrocious jeans-in-the-gym behavior? What do you think?

…not because of a great bicep and back workout but because of this guy lifting IN JEANS:
(notice the strategic use of mirrors to get the shot)
And this guy:
(Yes, he is sleeping! I know he isn’t in jeans but the picture is funny as hell. )
Thanks to my gym friend, Sarah, for snapping the second picture. To get her to forward it to me, I had to “come out” about this website to her (Hi, Sarah!). I counted and I think she is only the 10th person that I know/met in my real life that knows about what I do here. As I always do when I tell people about JoggingJeans.com, I started with “Don’t judge me.”

And, Young Ones, one of the “Justin Biebers” of the generation before you – meet Jordan Knight:

Here are two of my MANY gym-related pet peeves:
1) People that wear jeans in the weight room section of the gym (no surprises there, huh?).
2) Guys* that carry around water in a gallon milk jug.
Today’s picture, thanks to Nikko, captures both.
* I’ve never seen a girl do this. Have you?

All of us regular gym-goers have been dealing with it for the past month: the newbies crowding our workout facilities and throwing off our swole rhythm. And we are conflicted. Of course we are happy that people are trying to commit to a healthier lifestyle. Of course we hope some of these people learn to love the gym and make it a regular part of their life. We also love watching them get stronger and transform their sloppy, doughy-bodies into rock-solid temples. But we all feel a bit of frustration when we can’t get to the equipment and machines we need to use.
We also might like to judge their gym clothing atrocities…i.e. jeans in the gym.
The evidence of this is my ready-to-explode inbox and Twitter feed. So many pairs of jeans at the gym. So little time.
Along with today’s jeans-in-the-gym photo, you are going to get a lesson about proper form when doing preacher curls.
Keep your ass on the seat. Class dismissed.
