The “+ More” = Crowded Gyms in January
Regular and consistent gym-goers complain about the surge of new people in gyms in January.
Not me. I LOVE the January crowd. New faces, resolution excitement, all the “new beginning” vibes. I am hoping that by showing these newbies an occasional smile and some encouragement, a few will stick around, become more healthy, and begin to love the gym as much as I do.

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.

…not because of a great bicep and back workout but because of this guy lifting IN JEANS:
And this guy:
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.”

A LOOONG time ago, I posted the following picture of Marilyn Monroe on a weight bench IN JEANS.
This week, I stumbled upon this picture of her RUNNING in those same jeans.

The last post was about the guys and their poor clothing and footwear choices at the gym. Today’s post is about the girls. Enjoy.

Since the first installment of Denim AND inappropriate footwear at the gym was such a hit, I’m doing a couple of more just like it. Fortunately for us, there are many people who make poor workout clothing and workout shoe decisions. Today is dedicated to the guys.

When I see someone in the weight room of the gym in jeans, my first thought is, “Must not be leg day.”
Uh…not so fast.
