    So basically the question is what do you think of 90% of the male population, right?

    They aren't mutally exculsive numbnuts.

    u jelly of my swoleness and mental prowess while you are stuck with just the one?
    I didn't say they are now did I? I just called lifting weights trivial. Please don't assume or infer unless I directly state how I feel. I know a lot of smart guys who lift weights and who are stronger than me.

    Just because I don't like something doesn't mean I think the people that do it are stupid and/or inferior in any way.

    It's probably more than that...

    I been going gym since 2007. To be honest, I feel like it's a waste of money, although I only pay £15/month. To me, it's just a hobby and it's better then staying at home doing nothing.

    I have seen no improvement in my fitness level and don't see any change in my body, maybe slightly more toned compared to 2007.

    I usually do the same routine every time at the gym, maybe that's why I am bored of it.
    I haven't read ahead yet, but no doubt the subsquent view would have been asserted prior to to this.

    The reason you are seeing no improvement is because you are not challenging your body. You'll never improve if you constantly give your body the same workout. Muscles adapt. So yes, the last four years have been a waste of your time and money.

    Can't afford it, lazy git, doesn't care about image.... etc etc
    I have a mind to get girls with instead. I dont care if they can beat me up, I can just wait till they fall asleep
    And in any case I dont need to go the Gym to do my hair. Its not like you walk around shirtless the whole bloody time.

    Never been to a gym in my life. It's never posed a problem.
    And it never will.

    Define very often.

    This has the potential to be the dumbest thing I've read all week.
    Any more than a couple of times a week.

    Clearly you do not read much.

    Not challenging my body is not a reason for not seeing improvement. I am just not fit and when I do push myself I get injuried.

    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.
    As long as he's fairly fit and healthy, that's fine.

    I wouldn't be attracted to a guy more just because he goes to the gym or is very muscular.

    I wouldn't say no, but it's not on my priority list. Other things matter more to me.

    Firstly, being fit or not is not an inherited attribute. You work towards it. Secondly, Yes, that is the reason for you not seeing improvement. I don't think you arguement has much credibility when you clearly know very little about building muscle. You've spent the last four years at the gym and haven't changed! The reason you are getting injured is because you have improper technique and/or have failed to work certain muscles and have caused an imbalance, thus becoming prone to injury.

    I know people that have never visited a gym in their lives, yet they have an amazing physique because of their genes. They are also pretty wealthy.

    I used to go to the gym when I lived at home, did weights, got myself looking more toned. But now I can't afford it/too busy, but I still play football once a week and play tennis once a week. My body has pretty much stayed the same, still got six pack and look toned, so I have no need for the gym any more.

    I don't think you can just ask "what do you think of people who don't go to the gym", cos it depends if they're fat, weak, unhealthy looking, etc or if they look fine and you wouldn't know whether they went to the gym or not. Outside exercise is better than the gym anyway, it's more healthy I think!

    I wouldn't give a damn. I'd take a guy who doesn't go to the guy over a guy who is obsessed with working out any day.

    Massive beginners mistake there my friend.

    EDIT - I don't understand all the gym hate on TSR especially from the guys. Haters gonna hate I suppose, especially if they're skinny beta's.

    I'd probably prefer it if they didn't go. There are better ways of exercising - I prefer going for jogs in the local area, playing team sports, going swimming, dancing or walks in the countryside, rather than being in a sweaty hall of mirrors, full of chavs on a running machine while they blast Eric Prydz over the sound system.

    Maybe it's just my upbringing, all of my past boyfriends, or guys I've had a crush on, don't use the gym regularly.

    The people I know who have gym memberships are:
    a) My dad.
    b) This insufferable prick who I went to high school with.

    You're implying people who go to the gym don't play outdoor/other sports as well. For me I got to the gym because I desire to stay in the university rugby team, its a means to an end tbh.
