Tales From the Glitter Gym – The Pickup Part 2

Standard

This post is a follow up to Tales From the Glitter Gym – The Pickup.

In the last edition, I listed the three classes of guys who attempt to pick up women at the gym. I also explained how I’ve never seen a woman try a pick up a man at the gym. Women seem to understand that people look better after they’ve exercised, not while they are exercising.

There is one other scenario which I didn’t cover.

A few weeks ago I was watching in disbelief at what could be the worst personal trainer in history, train his client. The choice of exercises and postures were not only ineffective, they were dangerous. I couldn’t help but shake my head. Between every set I had to watch the training disaster that was unfolding.

Then I noticed this other guy was also shaking his head watching the personal trainer. Someone besides me now shared a common bond of hatred for this awful personal trainer. I made some comment about the disaster that was unfolding and as soon I did I realized I had made a mistake.

There are basically a few types of guys who enter the free weight room of a Glitter Gym. Skinny guys trying to gain muscle. Heavy guys trying to lean out. Older guys just trying to be healthy. Guys between 35 and 50 and in awesome shape at a Glitter Gym are often homosexual. The rare heterosexual male that still in great shape after 35, most likely has a home gym or works out in a Rust Gym.

Well my new friend floated over to me and was flaming more than a San Diego wildfire. In the body language book I read back in June, it outlined 13 different signals that women project when they are attracted to a man. The book further explains that some are used by homosexual men. Well, I spotted a few being thrown in my direction. Nice enough fellow, but he had me all wrong.

I suppose I should be flattered. I’ve finally sculpted my physique to appeal to gay men. Great. As long as this guy doesn’t spot me driving around Queen Anne listening to high energy dance music, I should be OK.
