To ask male gym instructor to 'show' a little less

AIBU to ask our rather nice new instructor to wear something other than very close fittIng lycra shorts? He seems to be quite a 'show-er' but his attributes attract way too much attention and discussion. I seem to find my eyes wandering a little during sessions and sometimes I have to get closer to the front to prevent others from getting distracted too! On the plus side I have lost half a stone. Seriously, what should I do - public decency is being outraged!

It's the elephant 's trunk in the room

Now this is comedy gold! grin

What a great idea! But a quick pic with my iPhone would be even better. Depends how close Incan get to him without arousing suspicion.

I'm sorry Scarlet71, but I am going off to flouncers corner unless you can provide photographic evidence that this gym-based Loch Ness Monster exists. Any chance of sending a group of American tourists with long lenses in to provide said evidence?

Come on MN! Need to get this thread restarted. Away alone in a hotel on a business trip and needing some light relief!! Anyone up for it?

Scarlet that's just boasting........grin

As opposed to no 3 who has the bisected nutsack. (helps settle him onto the bike seat p'raps?)

And no 4 who dresses one way to compliment No 5 who dresses the other. Good to see a well balanced team.

This is more like what I'm faced with every time I go to the gym

SNF grin What the Dickens (arf) is going on with cyclist number two?? Poor lad <snort>

1950shousewife - imagine how embarassing it would be doing this if you had a really small willy (or a really big one!)

Nutella - that is the funniest photo EVER. I love the way they all look so earnest whilst their meat and two veg are not left to the imagination. Bless you for that.

Scarlet71 Wed 13-Jun-12 22:20:20

Hmmmm I would say the middle one but really this guy is much more blessed than any of them!

SecretNutellaFix Wed 13-Jun-12 22:16:53

Which of these most closely matches what you see?

Photos? Let's just say I wouldn't need a zoom lens.

1950sHousewife Wed 13-Jun-12 22:11:27

This thread has made me laugh so much.

Advice? Keep him away from the Power Plate at the gym. I'd not want to see his shorts vibrate vigourously. Or maybe I would. I need photos to check.

Scarlet71 Wed 13-Jun-12 22:08:02

Anyone willing to offer any advice?

Scarlet71 Tue 12-Jun-12 20:08:35

Even worse tonight. He's moved on from the tight shorts to very baggy tracksuit jogging pants. If anything, this is even more entertaining distracting. What's a girl to do?

Scarlet71 Fri 01-Jun-12 21:08:34

Now I've had a chance to calm cool down perhaps I can give you my full account? Glad to hear I'm not on my own!

All these bulging men are doing it on purpose. And you are falling for it. The best thing is to stare fixedly at their face for the entire encounter. They will be very disappointed and wear an even tighter pair next time

CrazyUnderwear Fri 01-Jun-12 20:45:46

Erm - are you in Hull by any chance? I happen to know of a gym instructor with a massive bulge who likes to wear the tightest lycra known to mankind. He's such an ego-maniac though.

Lueji Fri 01-Jun-12 20:27:50

I can well imagine. Similar to what I have to suffer during DS's swimming lessons...

Only today he had a t-shirt on. Darn.

LolaThePregnantFlyola Fri 01-Jun-12 20:06:27

It's quite probably DP, i tell him every morning that he will offend someone with his shorts.

i don't know if mumsnet will class this as advertising so i will hide it well if you all give me your numbers i am more than happy to sell him for private lessons

[really, really wants holiday]

Scarlet71 Fri 01-Jun-12 19:56:28

OP here. Just back from gym. Hot. And. Rather. Flustered.
