    We're on an internet forum. Not exactly the best place to find people that do actually exercise or go to the gym. Which means the general opinion on this matter is going to be swayed by the several internet posters who do valuable little else with their time and simply can't be arsed to exercise. "Oh I don't go to the gym, so it must be gay/waste of time/pathetic" is all I'm seeing from the majority of posters in this thread. If you can't be bothered to maintain a healthy lifestyle then ****ing admit it rather than trying to force a negative spin on this whole 'fitness' business because you simply aren't motivated enough like the rest of us.

    Oh, and sorry, but women are naturally more attracted to more muscular males, even if you try to convince yourself you're not.

    No it doesn't bother me.. there is more to life than being 'hench' and also it can be intimidating if the guy is too muscly!

    as long as they're not actually fat don't care. and I know how pathetic it sounds but id rather be the fitter one as it would make me feel better and being with someone more fit would make me feel rather insecure

    uh huh

    and what happens when those BIG BAD men decide to take your wallet? or rape your Gf in front of you? Dare I say you might run squealing for the hills less you hear some grunting noises?
    Both those situations provide reasons to study martial arts or boxing or something. I would not think "I wish I had gone to the gym".

    It's nothing to do with fitness. Play a sport, go jogging, do something fun. The motivation for going to the gym is narcissism:

    "I want to look hench/buff/built"

    Sorry but when a fight involving 2 guys or more happens you need the following on your side

    -Mental state to inflict pain when needed
    -Capable of holding a guy in a position long enough to hurt him
    -Muscle
    -Elbows and knees
    -Uppercut punches
    -Neck hits
    -Groin hits

    You dont need any boxing/martial arts background to understand this, you need to focus when in a fight, you'd probably fall over the nearest stone.

    Except strength training has a lot to do with fitness and it can also be fun.

    Don't let your insecurity cloud your ability to think logically.

    I think (know) people's views are incredibly biased - People are only basing their opinions on what seems to be the body building hardcore gym-goers that spend most their time to bulking. But that's their choice right?

    Anyway my point is what about the many people that do gym alongside their everyday life? I'm trying to get more into gym and at the moment it seems people will judge me negatively.

    I want to get stronger, more fit and look better is that really a crime wanting to look better as well? :P I'm not vain just if there's a way to improve myself and it's in reach I should shoot for it?

    I also want to get more into my running and so gym can help with my general fitness (free gym membership with my accomodation so how could I say no? though i will be paying for it next year 'tis worth it)

    People remember - you can go to the gym AND not be a self-obsessed person stop ruling all the options out

    Just wondering. Does it put you off that a guy never goes to the gym and pulls weights/works out? The guy is not fat or anything, he just doesn't have the typically buffed up gym body and would rather spend his time doing other things.
    Don't like either extreme. I appreciate a man who takes as much care in his body as I do. As long as the gym isn't an obsession or he hasn't got a complete aversion to being healthy I don't mind. Prefer everything in moderation.

    Rudimentary martial arts or boxing won't help you when you're weak as a kitten.

    Cardiovascular endurance =/= fitness.
