I don’t wear mine in the gym, I lift weights and will eventually bend the yellow gold band.

I don’t like leaving things in the lockers as there have been a few break-ins so I (discretely) take it off in the car and leave it in the armrest.

I’d love to wear it in the gym but just don’t want to damage it. I worry that people might see me in there and thing we have called off our engagement!!

lilsweetie:  I love this idea! I’m thinking about getting one of those too. Would you recommend it? When do you use it apart from the gym? Do you use it daily? Sorry, just got too excited with this idea haha. I’m wondering if I would end up using it enough, apart from having a little dish on the bedsite table.

These are the ones I’m looking at: http://www.emilyc.com/shop/

I never remember to take mine off, so I just wear it.

Has anyone tried the QALO rings? They are silicone bands, used in place of your wedding/e-ring while working out.  They are huge in the CrossFit community right now. My fiancee thinks they would be a great idea for when he does mud runs or Spartan Races, so he doesn’t lose his actual wedding band. 

They come in so many different colors and are super inexpensive- http://qalo.com/

I second Qalo rings! My Fiance and I just bought some.  We figure we’ll wear them when we’re working out & doing other outdoorsy activities.  Now we just have to hurry up and get married so I can actually wear it!

I wear my rings at the gym. I don’t use them for anything.

I take mine off to do dirty yard work, messy cooking, or when I’m out in a lake kayaking or swimming.  I would be devistated if I lost it!  I also don’t shower wearing it, just in case.  My gym doesn’t have a pool so I wear mine to work out, but If I was swimming I wouldn’t.  I do for yoga and biking.  Just not anything that would risk it getting slippery and sliding off!

The company mine is from said to never wear it to the gym, but I’m overly cautious with it in general

I wear mine to dance classes (don’t do gym) and its fine. But if I ever did go back to gym I would definitely leave it at home. I don’t shower with it on – too worried about losing it down the drain – and I’d be too nervous of leaving it in the locker. I definitely would never wear it in the pool! maybe get yourself a cheap stand in ring so that you don’t feel too “naked” without it?

soontobemrspatterson:  I rarely go to the gym right from work, but when I do – I put it in a pocket in my purse, which is in a locked locker while I’m working out. I have worn it sometimes during classes (Barre, Zumba, CXWORX), but I hate when it gets all sweaty around my ring and interferes with some of the stuff I have to do in 2 of the classes.

So, usually I head to the gym after I’ve been home and it stays there.

A girl I play volleyball with wears hers all the time (she works at a gym, enrollment manager), and she says that she just ties her ring to one of her shoes.
