    I don't carry a knife to the gym. I do have a CS Mini AK47 that is always in the car.

    That's a very good point. I tend to just throw it in my pocket whenever I leave the house. It hasn't gotten much use at the gym, but it certainly doesn't get in my way at all

    I’ve stopped carrying pocket knives to the gym, I really feel I get a better workout with swords.


    But hey, that’s just me.

    The vid in #43 would make more sense with a rifle and bayonet. He could get ripped quicker.

    Ahh yes... the Garand Slam workout. Great stuff.

    I don't carry a knife in the gym. But if I were so inclined, the Bugout is thin, light and has the deep carry clip.

    I'd carry that I suppose.

    Whatever knife I was carrying to work that day.

    I head straight to the gym after work and just wear the same clothes, carry the same wallet, and the same knife (knives).
    Throw a few things in the locker, like coats if it's winter, but I ain't taking the bus home, leaving stuff there, grabbing another bus and wasting a bunch of time. It's just go there after work, get it done, then go home. :)

When I get an urge to exercise, I call a friend to have a drink with me until the urge passes. If I had to bring a knife with me to the gym, I would stick a 55gm William Henry B-15 into the placket of my polo shirt.

    "In the shower or in the pool with family" is when you might most desperately need a knife ! :p

    I haven't been to a gym in at least 45 years . But, if I had to do that to work up a sweat , I'd take this along :

    A "Jim Bowie" of course.

    (I can't take credit as this was the response to the same topic years ago.)

    If my gym staff saw a knife in the gym SWAT would be called immediately and a police sniper would take you out before you knew what was happening.

    Yes that one and the Native 5 LW S110V is what I carry when wearing shorts with no pockets.

    And also I'm totally in the "no knife in the gym" camp. If I ever need a knife when doing my workout there will be a knife in/on my casual pants in my gym bag. That is gonna have to do..

    I've got 3 or 4 that would work perfectly, specifically the Bugout, Para 3 LW or DF Salt.

    Any particular reason why?

    I only ask because I have gone back and forth on the issue that I show up to my gym and park in a dark lot before 4am. The gym backs up to our neighborhood, which is nice, but also touches borders with some rental properties. Its located in a strip mall that has seen better days. I guess I could be considered a target for someone.

    However, i don't really worry too much about that at all. I'm parking in the front row that is about 20' from the door. I'm not a huge guy, but I'm 5'10 and a solid 205lbs so not exactly a soft mark. I don't have anything to rob me of. Maybe my phone, but i don't carry anything nice or whiz-bang.

    The irony of carrying a knife to the gym is that I would be the most valuable thing on my person:D

    Maybe he just wants to get cut and not ripped

    I don't carry a knife on me while in the gym, does not make sense (again, for ME). But I do carry a knife permantenly in the gym bag (which stays in the locker). So if I ever need something cut, I just go to the locker and cut it. But if you want to carry one while squating, deadlifting or benchpressing heavy, be my guest!
