Turned on at the gym?

Wondering if I'm alone on this or what. I get turned on at the gym and necessarily there isn't always an attractive woman in the gym. Lifting just gets my endorphins going and I'm not sure if it's normal or not? Of course I don't act on it or anything like that

    Lifting gets my happy hormones going too. For me, this is a different feeling from arousal, but also pleasurable, albeit in a different way.

    No I can't honestly say this has ever happened.

    Nope - I admire some people's hard work and results, but I haven't been "turned on"

    Not embarrassing to say that yes, yes I have. And I agree, it's not always because there's attractive ladies there. Sometimes on a late night workout it's just me!

    Me! Nothing in particular at the gym, but the fact that I'm up and moving and getting endorphins flowing always has me "happy" :P

    Aly, I have a feeling you're going to have a huge amount of friend requests, if this thread catches on!

    Yes. I think it's physiological. Lifting increases blood flow. So does sexual arousal.

    It is simply enjoying the feeling of a muscle pump.

    Only when a hot woman starts eyeballing me!

    I get the endorphin rush near the end, and am more frisky at night for sure. But not turned on AT the gym, no.

    Yes sometimes I feel "realll good" especially after a workout. I chalk it up to all those happy hormones being released.

    There is a small percentage of women that experience "coregasm" while doing intense exercise....

    My 'coregasms' usually come after the exercises, while stretching
