Today I did a pilates class…one frum woman wore a skirt and pantyhose for the class (all women, but still!) Does she think this is tznius? What clothes do you wear to work out in that are tzanuah in an all women’s gym?February 25, 2011 12:07 am at 12:07 am #744865
maybe she left her gym bag at home?!!??! i wear leggings and a tank top when doing yoga and at the gym in general but there are always some crazy ladies who are working out in their sheitals and tights….February 25, 2011 12:29 am at 12:29 am #744866
She was new to the class, maybe next time she will wear something less revealing.February 25, 2011 12:53 am at 12:53 am #744867
i dont wear tznius clothing to work out…no way!!February 25, 2011 1:20 am at 1:20 am #744868
its ok to dress for the gym- and u culd wear leggings etc- but there are ppl walking around with their leggings or sweatpants sticking out from under their skirt- and its not just showing a little its alotFebruary 25, 2011 1:41 am at 1:41 am #744869
Shuli, I hope you work out at a women’s only gym.February 25, 2011 3:17 am at 3:17 am #744870
I go to an only womens gymFebruary 25, 2011 2:03 pm at 2:03 pm #744871
I wear a skirt to the gym, but with leggings underneath. I just need that skirt coverup to hide my not so skinny body!
It nauseates me when woman wear plain leggings and they’re more than size 6.February 25, 2011 2:16 pm at 2:16 pm #744872
Get this – I was at the gym once and saw a woman get into the POOL fully dressed! And I mean skirt, long sleeves, snood, the whole business. I couldn’t believe my eyes. I thought she was just going to put her feet in or something, but noooo… all the way in.
Why? Why? WHY?February 25, 2011 2:45 pm at 2:45 pm #744873
its usually the fancy 5 towns ladies who wear their sheitals when owrking out…February 25, 2011 3:44 pm at 3:44 pm #744875
Laer- she DEFINITELY left her swim suit home because NOBODY swims fully clothed indoors, especially when they sell these Tznius bathing suits by now.February 25, 2011 3:50 pm at 3:50 pm #744876
yoga is very goyish, it associated with meditative practices in Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism…very goyishFebruary 25, 2011 4:36 pm at 4:36 pm #744877
Pants and a t-shirt. No way I’m going to be in long sleeves in an all girls gym!February 25, 2011 9:34 pm at 9:34 pm #744879
Smartcookie, you serious? Thats why they are at the gym. Can’t believe you would really mean that, but if it really bothers you, just don’t look. There is no way I would wear a skirt when working out (too hard to move around), and I hate to tell you I am not a size 6.February 27, 2011 1:09 am at 1:09 am #744880
Understand- yes I’m serious. But we all have different feeling and I guess you don’t mind it. See ya at the gym! Now I’ll know whom to look out for!February 27, 2011 2:35 am at 2:35 am #744881
course you wear leggings and a t shirt… you are working out with women not walking out into the streetsFebruary 27, 2011 4:10 am at 4:10 am #744882
What about the people who do go outside with their leggings sticking out of their skirts. Or their hair sticking out of their Teichlach. The answer is ” I am just on the way back from the gym” Is that a heter for dressing not tzniusdik outside?February 27, 2011 4:12 am at 4:12 am #744883
What is wrong with having leggings on under your skirt, as long as you skirt is long enough?
How is it different from wearing stockings? Are you not allowed to wear stockings?February 27, 2011 4:24 am at 4:24 am #744884
They may be attention grabbing. Also, she may think if she has leggings, her skirt doesn’t need to be long enough.February 27, 2011 4:25 am at 4:25 am #744885
mikehall… it depends on the instructors machshavos and at most gyms its done for exercise/relaxation.
ur rite bubbee…when im dripping in sweat i should put on a full face of make up and a suit with 5 inch slingbacks.!??February 27, 2011 4:29 am at 4:29 am #744886
They may be attention grabbing.
They may be. They may not be. If they are, then there could be an issue. If they’re not…
Also, she may think if she has leggings, her skirt doesn’t need to be long enough.
She may. But we are presumably talking about a situation where her skirt is long enough.February 27, 2011 12:53 pm at 12:53 pm #744887
cshapiro–bbubby didnt say you need to look glamorous coming out of the gym, she said you are still required to be tzanua.February 27, 2011 7:45 pm at 7:45 pm #744888
Laer- she DEFINITELY left her swim suit home because NOBODY swims fully clothed indoors, especially when they sell these Tznius bathing suits by now.
So why the snood? I dunno, if I left my bathing suit at home I’d just skip the pool. She had already done machines and a class, and she was just walking in the pool, not swimming. And she didn’t hesitate before getting in the pool, just walked right in as if it’s what she usually does! The whole thing was just bizarre.February 27, 2011 8:15 pm at 8:15 pm #744889

I’ve seen many women go into the pool in a t-shirt, skirt, and snood. Most of them came to watch their kids though, not to actually swim. I personally wear a long t-shirt that covers my knees. I also keep my hair covered either with a bathing cap or a snood. I’m just more comfortable that way. And I’m not overweight.February 27, 2011 10:01 pm at 10:01 pm #744890
pet peeve, if my pants are under my skirt, how is that not tznuis? (assuming the skirt is long enough and you dont see *gasp* skin)February 27, 2011 11:12 pm at 11:12 pm #744891

and you responded: “ur rite bubbee…when im dripping in sweat i should put on a full face of make up and a suit with 5 inch slingbacks.!??”
so i said that bubby is not telling you to glam up to go out of the gym, but to be tznius. she clearly thinks that wearing pants under your skirt is not a tznius look. it might not cross any halachic boundaries, but I can see how someone would feel that it is a sensitivity–the look is not so refined. plus, showing hair is not ok….
