Men usually go lift weights while women do the fitness class thing.
Personally, I hate group activities. I do like to see others at the gym, but also enjoy it when I'm the only one around.
Because then you can say how you benched 335 even though you didn't get it off the rack and how you can squat 500+ even though you never even came close to going below parallel.
I guess I'm more like a woman in that I like working out with other people because I get very competitive (if I see someone else doing something then I can do it, I push myself much more in a group, etc...).
I also think I get much better results from fitness classes than from just lifting weights but then again, maybe I'm looking for different results than others.
I love yoga class usually since it is a bunch of fit women in tight spandex and me.
But then usually some hairy fat dude in super tight spandex that lets you know whether he is circumcised or not can come and ruin it.
I joined a yoga class once, and was one of 2 or 3 men and a dozen or so ladies. I quit after the 3rd or 4th session because group activities are not my thing and because it was too awkward given the poses and routines we did.
our society exerts much more pressure on women to remain fit than men.
Unfortunately, not all the scenery was good. Somehow I often found myself behind women doing the downward dog and similar poses who were either fat or very old. Not a pleasant sight - more awkward than anything.I took some yoga classes. It wore me out a lot more than I thought it would. It's too painful to enjoy much the scenery.
