My therapist keeps suggesting I go more and I'll meet people. I never really talk to anybody when I'm there.
Any friendly gay gyms in the west valley of LA? Like Woodland Hills, Encino, Sherman Oak area.
Yes, very much so. My core base of long-time friends originated at a gym that we were all members of years ago. We've all moved to different cities since than, and still get together, in fact this memorial day, I'm hosting ten of the former gym members.
Obviously depends on the gym. After that, I'd say classes at the gym are the least awkward gym situations in which to get to know people. Think Jazzercise, but more (broken?) hip.
