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:

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!

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

Crossfit1

Crossfit2Also, in the past, I wrote about CrossFitters in British Columbia who wore their best denim outfits to raise money for a children’s hospital there. A little taste of what you missed:

I <3 Resolutioners

imagesJanuary at gyms = my favorite time of year. No joke. And it has nothing to do with workout apparel (okay, maybe a little).

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.)

Thanks, Sarah!

And…I LOVED this comment on a sign at my gym asking, “What will your legacy be?”
