Newp. I’m into heavy-lifting. The idea of wearing my ring while trying to deadlift (and having the metal band pushed into my skin) makes me itchy.

I wear mine running and doing body weight exercises. I’m terrified of losing it, so I only take it off when cooking or handling gross stuff. My Fiance hates that I sleep in it, but if I take it off at night, I often forget to put it back on in the morning 🙁

No way. Definitely don’t google trauma photos of working out with rings on…

I wear mine when I work out, but I don’t do any heavy duty workouts – pretty much just yoga, pilates, and barre with baby 2-lb weights. If I were doing workouts like boxing or weightlifting, I might take it off. I go to the gym straight from work and don’t feel comfortable leaving it in a gym locker, though, so no idea how I would handle this.

If you lift weights, don’t wear your rings! Two words… ring avulsion.  And like soymilk said, do not google it!!!

I used to work out with my ring on until it started to slip off.  After a resize, I stopped wearing it to the gym.  It’s a sapphire so I’m a slightly concerned about durability compared to a diamond.

I take mine off when I work out because if I don’t, it rubs against my hand and I get a callous spot there. Or it pinches against my skin when I am on the rower, etc. But I never take it off otherwise, and I wouldn’t if I was just running or on the elliptical etc where I didn’t need to use my hands.

The first few weeks I was engaged I wore my ring to the gym everyday, but that was only bc I was hoping my ex would see it!

I take it off for breathing, lol, it is heavy and wide and kinda hard to close my fingers. I want a thin, flat skinny band to wear for actual life.

No, I weight lift and it can be so dangerous to weight lift with rings on your finger. One time I accidentally had my ring on at the gym and started lifting and it was so uncomfortable so I took it off right away. I also take my ring off when I shower, sleep, and do the dishes.

I wear my wedding set when I’m working out. I mainly do aerobic stuff though. I wear it just about all the time. I don’t want to accidentally lose it if I take it off, and the materials should be hardy enough to withstand everyday use.

As someone who has actually seen a ring-induced injury at the gym, I never wear my rings to workout. I didn’t see the incident happen, but I saw the aftermath, and it was traumatic. It happened on a pulley-system machine, somehow her ring got caught and when it was pulled up her finger it took most of the skin down to the bone with it. I leave my rings at home now.
