I'm not old enough to fit into the "cougar" category, but I've been to the gym and seen them in action. Where I live, they're not that big of a problem; they flirt, they watch the guys, one may go around and admire a weight-lifter's muscles. They're pretty harmless.
Most of them flaunt what they've got (mini-shorts in this weather?!), but then, a lot of the men do too. I can't count the times when a man approached me just to let me know that he could bench x amount, and then there're the guys who ask me towel them off after a work-out because they "can't reach" their backs properly.
Haha! Chewed gum on a toothpick...I know that type well.
In my gym there are cougars that are well behaved but still flaunt it because they love the attention. They know what they're doing, the rest of us guys thinking about horizontal physical training. Then there's some that just look weird with all that plastic surgery, looking like a piece of chewing gum on a toothpick.
Ok... wow a massage therapist! Ya you better watch your back. My younger and less wiser friend is a trainer. And yes he finds out that alot of them want horizontal physical training ;) And like a dummy he Sh!ts where he eats... Its caused him some trouble, be careful
a few of them at my gym, are major distraction they got it and flaunt it, I'm so happy! but for the most part they behave, darn!

Not really any of the above. I joined the park district gym. It's affordable and only 4 blocks from my house so it's very convenient. I think the affordable part is the reason that the only girls/women that are there are either 19 or 20 years old or in their late 50's to early 60's so the cougar factor is pretty much non existent.
Yep, they are there and on the prowl. I was pushed out of the way by one this weekend so she could get closer to my 25 year old this weekend. He is in fantastic shape and I noticed quite a few trying to get up close and personal....LOL. His new nickname is raw meat.
Thanks. Glad you like the topic. When I first went to the gym I thought the place was going to be all 20 somethings, but I found that some of the most inshape and energetic people at the gym are the women 40 and up. I find they can motivate and are always quick with positive wit but man are they an assertive flirty bunch too, thats why I offer the distraction choice as well. I've been approached, whistled at, and asked out and they say the men are bad.... On top of that they have their own weight room at my gym but use the coed section or ask to work right in... gotta love the revolution :)
