Lightbulb I CAN NEVER TAKE A SHOWER AT GYMS BECAUSE THERE IS NO PRIVACY!

I wish there was privacy at gyms, i dont want to be naked in front of other people in locker rooms. i understand some people don't mind taking showers while being naked infront of others, but some do. i beleive they should have doors so people can take showers in privacy. i hate driving home feeling all sweaty! does anyone agree with me?

Yup. Luckily my gym has separate shower cubicles with curtains so it's not a prob.

Wear a nylon swimsuit that looks like a pair of shorts. I found some Nike's that can be used as both shorts and a swimsuit and dry quickly. That's what I do. Towel off and let them dry for a minute and you're set to go.

I'm guessing you're male. Both gyms I've belonged to have had separate cubicles with shower curtains.

Make the suggestion to gym management. And until they fix it, follow strait's suggestion and rinse off in a swim suit or nylon shorts. Change in the toilet stalls in the bathroom section.

I'd say just try to do it for a few weeks and see how it goes. Usually you become comfortable when you realize that no one is concerned with your showering. I agree it is a pain at first because you feel like your in fish bowl, but it gets easier.

Yeah those open shower areas are like a pervert's paradise. You must belong to a really old gym because I don't know of any that don't have separate shower areas. And if you sweat, just bring a towel to wipe off the sweat on your face. Plus, how long could it be to drive home from the gym if you need to take a shower? If that's a problem, join a gym closer to home.

sports locker rooms cured me of that a long time ago.
An insecurity issue perhaps?

i had experience with only 2 gyms, one in my high school (which was very small) and one in my college(which i am currently going to and is quite big), unfortunately they both don't offer any privacy.
i like the swimsuit idea, thanx for the advice everyone!

I'm rather surprised that a gym that you PAY to go to wouldn't have some sort of privacy for showering. It's not like you're in prison or the military! Maybe look at another gym? I go to Gold's and I LOVE it!
