    Hello how is everyone? I’m sorry to bother anyone or if this is in the wrong thread but I’ve only been regularly going to the gym since mid November and I was just wondering if anyone could answer my question please? Ever since I’ve been going to the gym I’ve worn my prescription sunglasses while I’ve been there just to try to keep my confidence up a little bit, I know that most people at the gym look better than me and that even without the sunglasses I look out of place being there that’s no secret but I have been trying my best at the gym, I have been watching videos on YouTube about different methods and proper gym etiquette and I watched a video today about “gym crimes” by buff dudes and they didn’t out and say it but they kind of implied that wearing sunglasses at the gym is a no no. I was wondering if it would be an idea to stop wearing them while I’m at the gym and just wear my normal glasses? I try to be as courteous as I possibly can at the gym but since I’m pretty new there I don’t know everything about proper etiquette, I guess I kind of understand that wearing them can make me out to look like a bit of a creep but I’m honestly not wearing them to stare at people I’m only wearing them for a bit of self confidence when I’m there I only focus on what I’m doing and not on anyone else, I just don’t really want to make people feel uncomfortable around me for whatever reason as it’s a public place and they have a right to be there just as much as I do. Any advice or info would be greatly appreciated, I’m sorry if this is a bit long. Thank you for reading this and I hope that you have a good day. Oh and I go to Crunch Fitness if that helps too.

    Tldr. Sunglasses inside especially at a gym makes you look like a douchebag.

    I know what you mean about not wanting to make people feel uncomfortable. I walk around the gym with my penis in my hand during the whole workout and this makes some people feel uncomfortable. But thats too bad, this is how i train and it really keeps me motivated to keep going hard.

    you said prescription sunglasses, so I'm assuming they aren't fully blacked out, just slightly tinted yeah?

    If they are so dark no one can see your eyes, yeah you're being a creep. That goes for any situation indoors. If you can see you eyes still from the outside, no issue. Carry on.
