    One of the common stereotypes is that gay guys lift weights and take care of themselves better (on average) than straight guys.

    I am interested in this question because I have concluded that all the hottest chicks are found at the gym.

    What do you think? What proportion of guys at your gym to you think/know are gay? Girls?

    I have never tried to figure out the proportion of guys at my gym that are gay. I assume that there is a mix, but not sure what it is. I am not real sure what the relation between gay guys in a gym is to hot chicks in the gym...can you clarify?

    Also a stereotype is just that....

    I used to lift weights in college. And I stopped due I had high metabolism and didn't have any gains. I started about three years after I graduated from college...still the same problem.

    I guess I should start now. I bet that I would look hot. I do need the exercise.

    That's a pretty futile question.

    Gyms will obviously vary greatly from place to place and there is no real definition for what 'gay' is. And there are guys who you would swear who are gay that end up being straight as an arrow, and others that you'd never imagine were into men but in reality couldn't be more gay.

    This is my version of the Fact or Myth threads.

    The relationship is mostly for curiousity relating to my highest goal: banging hot chicks that go to the gym.

    I've only been lifting for a year but with tremendous results. I am certainly fit compared to average guys but not some of the other regulars. That makes me less confident in the gym. But maybe some of those guys are gay. Also, rumor has it that a lot of the people at the gym are either single or looking to get out of a relationship?

    Just one of those dumb ideas that pops into my head occasionally that is the relationship could have some impact. Banging hot chicks that go to the gym is a most genius idea.

    I would guess at least 25% but it could be more. I know at least a few the regulars are for sure.

    This idiot is trying to figure out what and who the competition are. He figures if there are 150 guys at the gym and 50% are gay then his chances with the 'hot chicks' at the gym are better. This is at best faulty logic as he hasn't considered how many men might be bisexual and how many men are straight and happily married or involved and not looking for 'hot chicks.' In addition he clearly doesn't know about lipstick lesbians. :tongue:

    I think it depends on what time you go, I see all sorts of people at my gym, hot girls, hot guys, straight, gay, Milf types, Dads,,etc, etc
    i do think gays do tkae better care of themselves tho, grooming, cleanliness, smelling good, all the things women sure like!

    My experience: it depends on the gym, and the time of day.

    In all the years I went to a gym and worked out, I generally preferred the gyms that were gayest. The atmosphere could get intoxicating!

    But the only time I ever hooked up with someone I met at the gym was last year, when I'd walk to the closest but least gay gym (a Bally's) I'd ever been to.

    So percentages mean little in terms of chances of meeting someone.

    :guilty: Yeah, those queens ambushed me and said to me...
    "You should go to the gym you are getting bald and fat. Until you get hair and buff status, your membership privileges are revoked and you are hereby :banned:. "

    So, I am in limbo. Anyone want to start a porn genre (and make it trendy) that involves an older gay man in straight porn? Straight for pay? I don't have any diseases. On-the-job training? Benefits?

    According to some on this site, 100% of men everywhere are gay.

    guess it depends on whom you ask

    NJQT is not quite on point but close.

    I consider myself to be more fit than about 80%. I presume that being fit is important at the gym. If those that are more fit than me are gay or marrried (they are easy to spot NJQT) then they don't really count inside my sample so maybe I'm 90% more fit than the rest. All of these numbers are just ball parking and I would not sit with my workout log taking stats. So, then I would feel more confident. Also, another note is that this is not faulty logic because I count the amount block not figured (bi and lesbians) as part of the error term in my estimiation.

    It seems like I would offend less people if I asked each person at my gym, "Are you gay, straight, or bi?" However, I plan to go to many gyms. Meeting gym bunnies is a numbers game just like anything else. That is why I ask for an average. True, some gyms are more straight or gay than others but I'm only interested in, "What proportion you would expect are gay in your gym?" I'll extrapolate from there.

    I know that being fit does not imply being gay b/c I am both fit and not gay.

    Some poor soul wants a slight advantage in meeting women. That's all I can think of after reading this thread. It doesn't always work out that way, being in a population that exceeds the ratio of the norm. It still doesn't mean he has an advantage. (pssst: a personality helps)
