Men Only Gyms?

There seems to be a good amount of female only workout gyms or at least a female only area in the gym.

Why not for men? For some of the same reasons that women use to justify all-female areas and organizations, (privacy, freedom from feeling self-conscious in the company of the opposite sex, the feeling that you can talk and behave in a way that you wouldn't in the company of the opposite sex, etc.)

Does anyone know of such a gym that exists? Preferably in Mississauga

I think there are a number of temples in Mississauga where the sexes are segregated and there is a lot of bending, rocking, etc. Kind of like a unisex workout class. :)

Personally I'd only go to a fitness club if there were lots of healthy girls also present. Something to keep your mind occupied while you workout. Too bad they like to keep the guys out!
12 months for condemning rape. 6 months for calling violent thugs "nasty". WTH? Is this IS?

Nope not a homosexual. Simply just wanted to know if there were such gyms available for the reasons stated in the original post

I've often asked that question myself. Are there Men's-only gyms? And the question I always ask after that is.......why?? ;)

There was a men only gym called Steamworks that was being advertised on the subway a couple years ago. We had a chuckle at some of the content on the posters, even though it's an acceptable alternative lifestyle and blah blah blah...

Are you looking for a gym like a spa/health-club or a power-lifting type place?

Really OP no one at the gym stares at you or pokes fun, everyone is there to do their own thing women included. I'm guilty of staring at the women though :(

I thought that until I worked out with a male friend one day. I am female. He was making inappropriate comments about the woman running in front of us on the treadmill. I now work out in the female section of my gym.
