Thanks for empathizing! I had read that about the wedding band thing, glad to hear someone else confirm it. That was also a problem when I worked at a larger firm in manhattan - all these younger guys just wanting a fling or something....
Although, this particular guy (Let's call him Trainer A) was looking over at my left side (so he was either looking at my ring finger or my butt) and smiled to himself. (He doesn't always notice that I catch him.) I wasn't wearing my ring at the time because the rough texture on the weights messes it up. However, there is a major dent/tanline that may or may not be noticeable to people. If he was hoping I'm single, and thinks he has confirmation now, I feel bad for him and hopefully me wearing the wedding band and bringing my husband will help with this guy. However, there are lots of other skeazier guys (including some of Trainer A's clients) who will actually talk to each other about my looks loud enough for me to hear. eeek.
I think the culture of the gym might just be that way. In which case, looking at your phone a lot and having headphones in may be the way to go. Thanks!
