Hands on a Hard Body

[ 4 ] 08/12/2012 |

Got your attention, yet?!

I’m here to talk about eye candy, specifically eye candy at the gym.  You see, most of the time when I exercise a the gym, it’s during prime-time mommy time.  Meaning, a morning week day between the hours of 8:30am and 11am.  The older kids have been dropped off at school and the mommy crew, myself included, head to the gym to drop off the younger children in the childcare center, and then climb on the elliptical to sweat it out, or do a Zumba class/Body Pump with friends or whatnot.  There may be a few men around, but not of the eye candy sort.

Anyhoo, the other day I was on the treadmill sweating my guts out working up a nice glisten when Justin Timberlake’s look-alike hopped on the treadmill next to me.  Now, I’m not in love with JT (Justin Timberlake) by any means, but he is easy on the eyes and he looks like he has a pretty fit body.  OK, now that I just uploaded this picture from the interweb’s, I have to say that JT is H-O-T.

I would put my hands on his hard body.

I can say that here, right?  This is a safe place, correct?

This post might get me kicked off the Shrinking Jeans writing team and my husband just might be horrified by this post- oh well!!!!

Where was I?  Oh yes.  JT’s look-alike was on the treadmill was on the treadmill next to me.  Of course, I have to say he was JT’s lookalike from the side because I never got a straight on view of him.  I mean, I was next to him and couldn’t very well jump off my treadmill to go stand in front of his to stare, could I?  And I certainly didn’t want to hurt myself while running and craning my neck to see if he indeed was related to JT (but I tried!).  Of course, there is a good possibility that the man didn’t look AT ALL like Justin Timberlake and this is all made up in my mind slim chance.

Regardless, for whatever reason- we know the reason- I had a GREAT workout, burning mega calories and feeling all kinds of bad-assery awesome.

I have JT and his look-alike to thank for that unexpected motivation.

Talk to me peeps- have you encountered anyone at the gym, on the trail, at your usual place of exercise that motivated you for whatever reason?  Tell me YOUR story.  I can’t be the ONLY one that has a workout kicked up a notch because of the eye candy around me, am I?  Don’t leave me hangin’!

    I love you, girl – thank you SO much for that JT picture! I usually end up having a worse workout when I see someone really hot at the gym. Too distracted and too worried about how crappy I look. That, and I get pissed when Mr. America is busting out a 6 minute mile on the treadmill and I try to catch him but only last about 2.4 seconds. :)

    since I only work out in my bedroom or at TaeKwon-Do where I am usually the only adult surround by 5-10 year olds, there is not a lot of eye candy to motivate me!

    Was at the gym working out and saw a guy whom I had previous relations with and after said relations told me he didn’t really enjoy himself cause I was fat (but I was a good person! Can’t forget he added that in, cause it made it so much better) basically he waved at me and I worked out so hard I thought I was going to puke! Anger is a great motivator! Lol

    Lisa, interesting post.

    The hottest person I have ever seen, who motivated me the most, is the person I encounter when I work out on the machines in front of the full-wall mirrors.

    Sorry! Had to say it! You left that straight-line hanging out there like a slow fastball…

    And, hey, don’t discount guys having similar thoughts about you at the gym!
