Comment Re:Exercise in front of people anyway (Score 1) 1806

Speaking as an extrovert, I can honestly tell you that I am not looking at ANYONE when I am working out at the gym. I am there to work out, and get out. That's it. Although, maybe that has something to do with the time of day I go (early AM).

I used to work out after work, and that was a whole different scene (it, in fact, WAS a "scene"). The "pick-up" crowd tends to show up after work, and makes it annoying when you're actually trying to exercise and not socialize.

If you find you can't accommodate what you'd like to do (cardio, weights, whatever) at home, then I'd suggest hitting the gym in the morning. If you feel you need to add another level of distance from everyone else, then put on some headphones, even if you don't listen to them. Most people won't even give you a second glance, if they give you a first glance to begin with.

The brain is a wonderful organ; it starts working the moment you get up in the morning, and does not stop until you get to work.
