Co-Ed Fitness Classes

The word aerobics came about when the gym instructors got together and said, “If we’re going to charge $10 an hour, we can’t call it jumping up and down.”

Good looking men and women with great bodies are often found in the gym. But, it is awkward to strike up a conversation with the person running at 10 miles an hour on the treadmill next to you. The solution? Join a co-ed fitness class.

Men are more likely to meet women in an aerobics or yoga class whereas women are more likely to meet men in high impact or martial arts based classes.

So, how should you approach a person at the gym? Peter Post, author of Essential Manners for Men, says. “Offering a compliment to a woman is a very gentlemanly thing to do,” explained Post, great-grandson of manners maven Emily Post. “But in a gym setting, it’s inappropriate to refer to her physical appearance. Comment on her abilities, not only to show you’re a nice guy who notices things, but also that you’re not solely focused on how she looks. If she responds favorably, that’s a signal to move forward.”

You should take an extra bottle of cold water with you. That way, you will have an excuse to introduce yourself to a cute person of the opposite sex who is missing theirs.

If your gym has a juice bar, you can ask if they want to join you after the class. But, be prepared for them to turn you down. Besides scheduling gym classes into a busy day, people may not feel up to a date after working out. Instead, suggest an alternative time that fits into both of your schedules.

Realizing that you are both fit people, suggest an active date such as hiking or playing Frisbee at the park rather than dinner and a movie. Active dates let you get to know someone better than if you were sitting in a dark theater.

Keep in mind that if the relationship doesn’t work out, things could get awkward at the gym class and one of you may have to switch. If you get attached to a specific teacher or only one time works for you, this could be a problem.

Still, you are likely to have a lot in common with someone who is as committed to their health as you are, so give love at the gym a chance.
