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:
6 Ways to Embarrass Yourself at the Gym (#6 – Wearing Jeans)
The Rattiest Gym Outfits Ever (#4-5, #15-17, and #15-#25 – that is 16 of their 25 pictures!)
The blog has featured other jeans-at-the-gym photos that I am sure you will enjoy.

J.J. Watt and Arnold Schwarzenegger on their recent bro date, a squat session . . . IN JEANS.
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!

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!

In the past, people have sent me signs from their gyms that I have categorized as “Gym Signs that Suck.” My new (#badass Las Vegas) gym doesn’t have a sign but it does have a list of rules. There is one rule in particular that sucks. See #4.
My first thoughts to share:
- So. Much. Sun. My body hasn’t seen this much vitamin D in my entire life.
- On my first day here, I got a little sunburn drinking coffee on my porch at 7:00 IN THE MORNING!
- One day, I thought there were clouds in the sky but it was actually smoke from a house fire a mile away.
- Goodbye seasonal affective disorder! Hello life of applying sunscreen every single day!

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:

Resolutioners help to break up my grind – the week-after-week, month-after-month, year-after-year, gym grind that typically contains no fresh starts or earth-shattering new goals for me.
I am okay being elbow-to-elbow with you or waiting an extra minute for the equipment that you are using. You know why? Your fresh start is my fresh start. Your excitement is my excitement. I enjoy watching your early strength gains, your longer and longer runs on the treadmill, your smiles of accomplishment, your transforming bodies.
I hope you stick around. I hope you become more healthy. I hope you grow to love the gym as much as I do. (And, I hope you learn what is appropriate and what is not appropriate to wear to the gym.)
And…I LOVED this comment on a sign at my gym asking, “What will your legacy be?”
