Hahaha, NO.

I have my hair up in a bun, I wear a t-shirt two sizes too big, and my MOM’S running shorts from the EARLY 90S! They were super expensive, and they fit better and work better than any other shorts I’ve ever owned!

I used to have REALLY old sneakers, too, but I bought fabulous new ones recently, so at least those are cute!

Definitely not!  Ratty shorts, tshirts or tanks, hair in a ponytail, very little makeup.  I might consider trying to look cute if I were single, but I just want to work out and not attract any unwanted attention.

@angustia:  I refuse to wear any makeup while exercising. It just feels so gross with the sweat. Then again, I usually don’t wear any makeup most days (probably should at least do Foundation to cover the little acne bumps).

I don’t know if I look “cute” per se. Sometimes I wear a form fitting tanktop, but that’s because I’ve started running on the treadmill. I always wear longer sweat pants; I’m not comfortable in exercise shorts because I have a butt and thighs. The only time I might consider putting a little extra effort in is if I go with my boyfriend, but I only want him looking at my butt so I usually don’t even try when I go with him (and if I caught anyone else staring they would get the glare of death, so it’s better to just avoid it).

@lolot:  +1

@angustia:  Lol! I did Color Guard for two seasons in High School. Even though some of the girls would practice in sports bras and shorts, I would STILL practice in full out sweats and t-shirts. . . even outside in 90 degree weather. I’ve just never been too comfortable with showing off my body.

And that sounds like a pretty good compromise to me. Maybe you were more comfortable doing that for dancing because it wasn’t at a gym and people were too busy learning the routinue to stare at you?

I think I look awful!  I seriously wear a pair of Jcrew yoga pants from the year 2000 (maybe even earlier? :/) and a huge tshirt and then some mens gigantic running shoes.  🙂

Oh, God, no… I’m a sweaty hog in the giant T-shirt. Not to mention, when I really get into it, I get the determination face on and mouth/headbang along to my music. Yeesh.

I dont necessarily try to, but I think I do. I exercise a lot, so I have an entire drawer of workout clothes and they’re fairly fitted and flattering. I will not exercise in cotton, so oversized t-shirts are out of the question. I always put on mascara when I leave the house, but I certainly don’t put on much makeup for the gym! I get sweaty and I workout hard, so I’m pretty yucky by the time I leave, but I could do much worse haha.

Hell to the no! I’m a disaster at the gym. I dont even shower before I go because what’s the point?

@angustia:  I dont think I look “cute” either.  I don’t try to be.  I wear a larger tshirt and yoga pants.  But that’s just because yoga pants are pretty easy to run in and I hate my legs. So until I get a tan (I’m as pale as casper) and tone up some more no shorts for me lol.

Oh gosh, I’m going to be the exception. As awful as it sounds I’m super proud of how good my body looks and I love to wear things that are fitted and especially cute.

I rarely wear bright colors normally but all my excercise clothes are bright and fun and…well tight. I like looking good, even at the gym.

I’ve also found, as bad as it is, that guys are much more eager to help me remove heavy weights or spot for me if I am looking good. 

I don’t put on makeup or anything crazy but I make sure that I look nice.

Sometimes. I dont get decked out, but every once in while I do want to look cute. I always wear lip gloss (no other makeup) and I enjoy wearing cute tops (but they are always comfortable). My pants are always black yoga types or tights. But its not like I’ll pick fashion over function. But I defintely have my I IDGAF gym days where I look like total shit.

I don’t shower or do my hair or makeup before I go to the gym, but I think my workout clothes are pretty cute. I get all of them from Old Navy because I refuse to drop $100 on compression capris that I sweat profusely in. But all my workout clothes are some black or grey solid or pattern, so I definitely match. And everything I wear is fairly tight, so I’m not in oversized clothes. My sneakers are also gray, but my sports bras are usually bright colors. But by the time I leave the gym, I usually smell bad and am sweating like a pig with a bright red face, so I would hardly say I look cute.
