Ring at the gym?

Just curious how many of you ladies wear your engagement ring while working out at the gym?

    If I'm working out at the fitness center in my apartment complex, I leave it at home in its box. If I'm working out pretty much anywhere else, I wear it. It gets kind of sweaty and gross, though, so I'd also love brilliant ideas about how to keep it safe but take it off. :-)

    I didn't wear it for the first couple weeks because it was still so shiny and new! But I sort of realized it would be a pain to keep that up forever, so now I wear it and don't even think about it.

    Besides, it's gotta help keep the gym creepers away a little bit, right?

    True. Plus it's good a good visual reminder of why I need to keep going!

    AJ, that is what I do too. I love wearing it but it gets sweaty and scratched up at the gym.  If I'm working out away from home, I never ever ever take it off!

    Totally true!  I WANT to wear it to the gym and keep the creepers away.  I guess I should just wear it and get it taken to the jeweler for more regular cleanings and stone checks ;) !

    I do not, I dont like it moving around because of me sweating or cutting into my hand when I do weights. If I forget to leave it at home I stuff it in my wallet.

    I wore it ALL THE TIME when I first got it. Now my workouts have gotten more intense and I don't usually wear the ring because I don't want it to get dirty or scratched. I do wear it sometimes, though, because it keeps creepy guys from hitting on me! I also don't wear it in the bath, walking the dog, or doing the dishes...

    Absolutely not. First of all, I'm not much of a jewelry person to begin with, so it actually feels more natural to me to not wear it at all.

    Secondly, with the workouts I do and the unique setting my ring has, I'm terrified it's going to get bent or broken.

    And lastly, I have actually managed to keep my ring shiny, and I don't want to mess it up with sweat and general gym gunk :o)

    Not caring about missing RSVPs because there aren't any rocks!

    My bag has a key ring on the inside that locks closed, so if I'm going to do weights, I will slip it on there (and leave it in my locked locker).  If I'm just doing cardio, I leave it on.  I do take it off when I go outside to exercise, things like hiking and kayaking.

    I agree dsb! I like to occasionally see my ring catch the light and remind me to run a little faster so I can look super in my dress.
