    HOW To... Get your G/F to start working out?

    I have been dating this girl who is great. She is cute and if she went to the gym she would be slammin'. She is slim, but just needs to tone up a little bit. She says she just doesn't really like to work out. How do I get her to become interested in working out with out offending her?

    Pinch her back holding a butcher knife and tell her youre gonna start slicing bacon off her back. That always seems to work.

    hmm.. well its a bit of a sacrifice on your part.. Feed her a bunch of crap food.. make her gain some weight.. then she'll want to be in there and hopefully stick to it hahah...
    I dunno man I gave up on trying to get girls in the gym.. either they want to or don't!

    when she's on top riding your stick, tell her to flip over because she's getting a little heavy.

    You have two options, one of which is vastly more attractive and more likely to succeed.

    Option One: Tell her that you think it would be a great way for you guys to do something together. Even if you're doing different things altogether at the gym, just going together and having that commonality in your schedule can work wonders.

    Option Two: Give her an ultimatum. "Look, gym important to me - if girl important to me, gym important to her - you go gym now".

    Clearly option two is more attractive because every relationship ends miserably anyways, so you might as well not waste your time and energy sugarcoating *anything*. Tell her you're still waiting on that sandwhich as well.

    pay for her membership to a SpaLady and have her go with a girlfriend. I don't know, but everytime I brought a chick to the gym with me, it just hindered my progress.

    Say if she was toned up you would rail her twice as hard cuz she would be twice as hott. Boneability goes up exponentialy with the hotter the chick.

    Tell her "yes you do look fat in those jeans"

    Oh darn! you want a way to tell her "without offending her"???? hmmm can't help ya there

    Maybe try to find a sport or physical activity she likes and do it with her... then you can suggest the gym to "help her out" in this sport.

    Good luck bro. I have been trying to get back into goping to the gym after just buying a house and my wife, who was going to the gym, is now saying that she doesn not want to go. If I come up with anything that works I will let you know. Hope you can do the same for me! Good luck!!

    Good luck! I run a gym and my girl might work out once a month if the moon is right and stars are alighned. They either are into it or they are not...just like fat slobby guys - I always ask myself why would anyone want to LET themselves look that way, and why wouldn't anyone want to look lean, muscular , hard and fit? Some people just are not into our thing.

    make it a point to go to the gym everyday at the same exact time then miss a day every once in a while and make a big deal out of it because u missed a day. the female mind will tell her that u are meeting someone at the gym everyday and that is why u got so mad. she will then make it a point to start goin with u. at least thats what my girl did.

    Way to use your girl's jealousy and insecuity against her!! Let us know how long it lasts, won't you?

    sometimes its a lost course........like someone said before.....they are either in it or their not.........i was in the opposite situation not too long ago........trying to get a guy to start working out.........everything was great about him, he just really, really, reallyyyy needed to get rid of that belly.............needless to say, it didn't work........i gave up when i realized it was just not happened........some people just have different priorities in life and its hard to change that...........

    I was thinking more along the lines of just telling her if she worked out she wouldnt have to be with someone so **** ugly....but yours will work as well...

    When I trained with my Ex in Barbados, I never missed a day in the gym. It was the best time of the day that I got to share with him. Hard workout, nice extra cardio session afterwards ...... invite her to train with you...tell her that your gym time is the most important part of your day and you want to share it with her. Be patient and keep trying. But as everyone said...if she doesn't want it, she won't do it..not for long anyway. You have to decide if she is important enough to you to date her even if she isn't going to share your love of working out. Personally, I can't date a guy that doesn't workout. Tends to pull me away from my training because I make him my priority and then I suffer. I'm happy that the man in my life now is a competitive BB so it will always be part of our lives .

    How important is the relationship? If she is "The One", then you can't take chances with ego trips, jealousy plays, etc. But here is what I would do, I think... I would mention the hot chicks at the gym, especially the one who looked kinda nice a few months ago but already looks too hot for porn, now, and isn't it frikkin amazing? Go on and on and then tell her SHE could probably look better than that because she started out already looking better than the lycra bunny in the gym.

    Or train at home. Get some olympic db handles and lots of loose 2.5, 5, and 10 lb plates and some QuickLee collars, and a simple flat bench. Better yet, two pairs of handles and collars to match. Maybe some cast DB in the very small sizes since the handles will weigh about 12 lbs bare. Get her to train naked with you! Face each other and do shoulders, for instance... arnolds, laterals, front raises, etc... you can figure it out.

    Or engineer a meeting between her and a really buff chick? Tell her she is your training partner!

    Odds are, though, if she isn't interested now, she never will be. But good luck anyway.
