It doesn't matter if the gym has communal or partitioned showers; they have open locker bay. So,if someone seems to stare at you, just ignore him. Finish doing your business, and leave. Some, younger ones, might be intimidated by gthe older ones with all those muscles ripping from their bodies. They don't understand that it took years of discipline, and they don't know how to ask to know what to do in order to get that shape. Some,obvious, might "compare" bodies. It's normal. But take the gym's experience as an opportunity to expand your social circle. Some guys might try to start a conversation because they've seen you at the same regular times and we, humans, are social animals. There are opportunities to nourish just a random rapport, possible acquaintanceship, and even friendships! If you don't want to socialize when someone want s to strike just a conversation, you can simple say:"Hi. man. I'm in a hurry for work/home. Nice to meet you; we'll chat some other time. Thanks.' It pays to be polite. What if you end up with a flat tire on the side of the road and someone that have seen you at the gym can stop and help you or keep you company for safety reasons? Situations like so had happened. What if yous car's battery suddenly is dead and someone offers you help? Again; it pays to be polite at the gym. You don't know when and where you might end up needing a helping hand.
Also, don't "hog" the machines or equipment; you are not the only one needing to use'em! Limit yourself to no more than 5 mins at the station or equipment. Rudeness doesn't look good on anybody.View Thread
I understand where you 're coming from. I suggets to call and set an appointment at various gyms in your area, especially those: closer to home and work no membership contract fro one or two years available month to month monthly payment option check , obviously, the men's locker room facility
As others have suggested you already, there are gyms depending on your taste; inexpensive ones with not so expanded options, and those who can cater your own.
There are limited hours gyms as well as 24/7 ones. Again, check for memberships fees and contracts, and their specifications on payments and cancellations.
Most gyms have a communal shower and others partitioned stalls, even some with doors.
And as men we are, looking to feel and look better through exercise, naturally your body will be responding without warnings to erections, which are normal and naturals. The best approach is either to face the wall most of the times , in an open shower. in either case, is also good to wrap the towel around your waist, even if you happened to get an erection for no reason at all. At the least, towel around your waist it's a way to show proper etiquette and respect to your co-workout fellows. Some might stare at you to check each others' bodies. That doesn't mean anything at all. That's why we have the annual bodybuilding competitions!
And, finally; it's a very good idea to get a refreshing and invigorating shower after the workout, no matter how long you spent time at, if you sweated like a hog or not. You'll feel good and smell good and people appreciate someone smelling fresh and clean. And if you go to the gym in the earlier hours before going to work, you can shave, and groom, and gfo for breakfast and have a great day.
If you go after workday, you'll get fresh to home and having a nice meal, that'll ensure a very restful sleep and a better disposition at work.
Good luck finding your most affordable and convenient facility.View Thread
