How to pick someone up at the gym

Most people join a gym to get fit, lose weight or tone up. But not everyone.

Some people use the gym to find a date. If you're one of these people, check out this hilarious tongue-in-cheek video on how to pick someone up at the gym without breaking a sweat. 

Almost 50% of women surveyed say the gym is a great place to meet guys, but remember, the gym is not a pick-up joint. Don't use the gym as a cruising spot and your gym card is not a ticket to picking up men or women.

Most people come to the gym to get fit, not to get hit on.

However, if you're someone who actually joined the gym to improve their health and reap some of the many benefits of exercising, check out our Fitness Zone for some great exercise programmes, articles to get you started on exercising and keep you motivated to continue with it.
