I wear mine – I figure a diamond and platinum can withstand anything I do at the gym!

I carry my purse with me in the gym, and I put my ring in a zip pocket while I’m lifting weights.

I tie it up in the laces to my shoe with a double knot

Whatever you do, don’t wear your engagement ring when you work out! You can damage the metal or even chip the stone if you knock it against something at the right angle, it’s not worth it. You can hide rings and other valuables inside of a folded, wrapped pad. A lot of men are repulsed by anything period-related, and it’s really inconspicuous! You could leave the ring hidden inside a pad in your glovebox. Or, can you leave your ring hidden at work? For instance, do you have a desk drawer that you can lock? Since your gym is close to your work, you could drop by after your workout is done to pick up the ring. Even if you’re really careful, there’s always a chance something could happen to your ring, so make sure it’s insured!

About necklaces: you know those thick wire ones that are shaped like a circle that interlock at the back of your neck? Those would hold a ring without fear of coming undone, breaking, or losing the ring. To me they would be safer than a typical thin chain link.

and you could slide one of those soft cushiony pencil grip things from Staples or Kmart office supplies, etc. on the necklace so that your ring would fit on that and wouldn’t rub against the necklace metal.

march2018brideboston :  I do indoor bouldering, where wearing rings could be dangerous or at the very least damage them over time.

I carry my ring box with me in my bag and put my rings in there before putting them in my locker.

I have found 2 eRings at my gym. Turned them both in and they were returned to their owners. Because of this, I don’t take mine off, safer not to.  I HIT, lift weights, box, swim, etc, etc for over 5 years now with my eRing, it’s fine. I used to wear gloves but my eRing sticks up too high for gloves. My jeweler assures me that he can fix anything, except lost, so I don’t give it another thought.

I just wear a silicone Enso ring on the days I go to the gym so my e-ring is safe at home.

I don’t have a ring but my friends when we work out either leaves the ring home on work out days or puts it into the coin section of a purse

march2018brideboston :  I usually go to the gym from home, so I leave it at home. If I do come from work, I zip both my engagement and wedding rings into the coin bit of my wallet, then put my wallet in my bag, then lock my bag in a locker.

I never wear rings while working out because the high risk if ring avulsion, especially when lifting weights! Silicone rings are the way to go and you can get a little carrying pouch for them when you are not wearing them. I place my metal rings in the pouch when hiking, lifting, etc. Sometimes I wear them just because they are really cute and comfortable! 

Enso rings are my favorite and Qalo is another great brand. I even have a few off ebay that are great, but please for the safety of your finger leave your e-ring at home/work/car or on a necklace while you work out. Rings are easily replaceable but fingers are not..

I’m engaged but not married yet…and I actually switch out into a qalo silicone band for the gym. I just like having something on my left hand, and I call it my “gym ring.” My Fiance is totally fine with it. I had a right hand ring that I wore for years and managed to get a hairline crack in it earlier this year from working out (it was 10K white gold) and that was the end of it for me…I said I’d never wear my E-Ring to the gym again just in case. However, I don’t switch it out when I do cardio– long runs, etc.

Wishbone_HolderI have a wishbone ring holder. 

Or sometimes I hide it in the car under floor mats, not in glove box.

I would never leave my ring in a locker no matter how well it is hidden. I work out at an Equinox gym, and the staff there still would never guarantee security or recommend leaving valuables. 

Instead, I wear mine or leave it at home. Even if you carry ring insurance, your car insurance policy limits may apply. Read your policy really, really carefully.

The types of workouts I do are cardio (elliptical, run, stairmaster), HIIT, plyometrics, and some heavy weights for glute training. I’m working on that 🍑 🍑

No gloves because my ring has too high of a profile, but I also just hate the way they feel
