Good health is popular

8:52am:
At the 24 Hour Fitness on Balboa Avenue, there are a lot of ladies working out. When I first began working out in the 1970s, hardly any women worked out.

Curious, I asked some of the ladies in the gym club, why they worked out? Good health is very popular now, was the answer. Also, feeling good is a reason for exercising at the gym.

Group classes are very popular with the ladies!





9:17am:
If you've got it, show it
At 24 Hour Fitness, showing your muscles is popular. Both the men and ladies wear exercise clothing that displays their muscles.

My muscles are growing! In a few months, I may be one of those who shows muscles too.

  1. What they didnt tell you is that many of them are there simply for the attention that men give them when they are running on the treadmill in yoga pants.

    1. Hi Andrew,

      Perhaps. However, the majority are here at 24-Hour to build muscles. Because a muscular body is the in-thing for both men and women.

      BTW! Would you say that men are at 24-Hour for the attention that women give them?

    2. Generally I think thats a big part of it for both sexes. Sure there are people there for legit fitness too. With San Diegos legendary perfect weather I cant believe anyone interested in running for exercise would be paying to do it indoors.

  2. Why do hardly any women show up at the gym,,, it's very simple,,, males
    The average woman is very self conscious of her body,,
    It's bad enough one Ogling her in the office,, how do you think she feels in a gym ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ•ถsurrounded by all that๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ testosterone
    That's why a lot of gyms have a women's only section or Time slots
    Let's face it the majority of us are pervxxxxx
    And don't try to think up a good excuse cause y'all know it's ๐ŸŒช

    1. Ed,

      You may have failed to interpret what I Blogged correctly!

      I Blogged:

    any man thats been to the gym more than once knows there's proper etiquette that must be followed. you may glance at a lady but if you stare or gawk and cause her to become uncomfortable you will be advised to behave properly. I attend my gym daily, many ladies look very nice but I dont pay any extra attention to them. I m there to lift weights and get big muscles like George has. ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ’ช
    good day from Annapolis,Md

  4. I've always worked out as young as in junior high school. I never stopped doing push ups, squats, wind mills, lift weights, etc. I was strong (don't know about muscles) even tho I was only 97 lbs by the time I reached college age. I played on Jr. Varsity team in college and my partner was over 6 ft tall while I was only 5 ft tall. I played forward and he played the back court. In high school I was in pep club and we continually exercised to do routines, flips, etc. Later in my 20's exercise clubs popped up and I joined to stay strong. I also joined hiking and camping clubs which I enjoy to this day. I also took up dancing for exercise and have been complimented that I am a good dancer too. I did all this for myself. I've always been very active from a young age riding horses, running cross country, etc. I never thought about who is looking at me...went about my business of exercising and out the door.

  5. Wow! My head can't wrap around some comments. In 1991 I made a conscious decision at 47 years of age to body build for one year--not for competition but for self-esteem and good health. My trainer was working on his Masters in Physical Science and developed a program for me. I was the only female in the free weight room until I inspired a couple guys to bring in their girlfriends. All of us were serious about our workouts and helped spot each other. I worked out 2.5 hours a session 4 days a week and worked in walking or hiking on my other days. I had never felt better. I kept up with a scaled down workout in ensuing years. My body is broken today because of an illness but I firmly believe I would have lost my battle had I not taken care of my body when I was younger. Wish I could work out along side of you! Hurrah for the ladies in the gym!
