Little do you know that the other person in this tiny-ass gym took a picture of you in your jeans!

My new awesome job has me on the road A LOT. I am traveling mostly on the west coast and quickly learning the tricks and tips associated with being a road warriorette. One of my biggest challenges with my new lifestyle is keeping up with my workouts in tiny hotel gyms that usually have nothing more than a bench and a set up dumbbells up to 50 pounds. I try my best to make it work.

Occasionally, I am delighted by someone walking into these “fitness centers” and working out in – you guessed it – JEANS!

“Jeans and sweat don’t agree with each other.”

In case you were wondering, I am not dead. Life in Las Vegas is awesome and my new job is rocking my world (in the best ways) – but both have been keeping me insanely busy. I have all the pictures that you have sent of people inappropriately wearing jeans while exercising, and I promise to post them soon.

In the interim, I am sharing the picture* I took yesterday at my gym of a dude working out in jorts. He is, in fact, the very first person I have seen out here wearing denim while participating in some sort of exercise (difference #126 between Las Vegas and Pittsburgh) .

JortsAnd the sign that hangs at my gym that the dude obviously didn’t read:

Rule* Yes, that is me wearing a Steelers shirt sharing my Pittsburgh love in the desert. And, Pittsburghers, how much do you love what is hanging in the entryway of my new home?

You are a fan of BroScienceLife, right?

To my fellow Gym Rat followers,

You know about BroScienceLife, right? If not, go over and check out the YouTube channel of Mike Tornabene and Gian Hunja. Mike and Gian are the comedic masterminds behind the obnoxious, douchebag Dom Mazzetti who makes gym culture hysterical. My favorites: Do you even lift?What is Crossfit?, What type of fitness chick are you? (warning: NSFW)

Recently, BroScienceLife blog featured some JoggingJeans.com pictures in two recent posts:

Ultimate Frisbee done right = Cotton Kills

Some awesome snippets from a recent email from my new boyfriend, Stephen:

Well, it isn’t exactly jogging but I captain an Ultimate Frisbee team named Cotton Kills and our uniforms are denim.  The more the better.  Overalls, cutoffs, dresses, hats, we have all varieties.

Our undefeated team is rejecting technical fabrics in lieu of good old fashioned denim ’cause it looks and feels right.

Our motto: Wool chafes, polyester smells, Cotton Kills!

TeamThe dog!

Cotton Kills reminds me so much of the dodgeball team I featured before: Dodgin’ in Denim. Don’t you think?

h/t Stephen for sharing this with me. Teaser: a fun post is coming soon about Stephen’s Ultimate Frisbee team. Their team name? Cotton Kills. Stay tuned!

 

“Cut!! You, You in jeans, can’t you see what we’re doing here?”

JoggingJeans.com has the BEST fans. Seriously. Especially runner Bethany who sent me the link to the following video. I was watching it thinking, “ok…boring, boring, what’s the big deal?” until I saw the magical thing that happens at 0:51.

 

I found the camera-person’s gradual shift to the left just AWESOME!

Gymnastics? In JEANS?!

Did anyone catch the season premier of America’s Got Talent last week? Did you think of me and this website when you saw ShowProject in their jeans? The only acceptable answer for not noticing the jeans is because you were so entranced by all the shirtless-ness.

People who work out in denim, who hurt you? + More

The “+ More” = A Little About Me

Reading about Elisa’s kitchen renovation has got me reminiscing about all the work we did on our condo a few years ago. Our renovation was a MAJOR one. I’m talking demolish-and-rebuild MAJOR, every square inch. We learned one important thing during it: NEVER undergo a whole-home renovation. It sucks on so many levels.

Anyway, during the work, I was OBSESSIVE about taking before, during, during, during, during, during, during, and after photos of every little space. Here is an example, with most of the “durings” removed:

I chose this sequence because I am in love with that hand-painted panel which I found at an estate sale for super cheap. Another thing about me: I’m an estate sale, flea market, thrift store addict. Retail is for suckers.

Denim is taking over my gym!

It happened again this morning. A ridiculous number of people showed up at my gym IN JEANS. Gym friend, Sarah, and I were the oddballs in exercise clothing.

UPDATE: Maybe Mary is right and Pittsburghers have lost their minds because of the snow. Today was the biggest snowfall day we have had all year. Right now, the view out my window:

CrossFit Love

CrossFitters = athletes that know how to rock fashion during workouts
