pants, t-shirt/tank top, and either a tichel or nothing on my head if it falls off while I work out.

My gym is not co-ed.

Because they consider it like swimming or bathing.

These women would never be caught dead in a mixed pool, and I highly doubt that they bathe with other men as well.

I consider the gym like a hospital or other medical facility. You want to cover more, go right ahead. There's a time and place for everything, however.

ETA: I don't go to a gym currently but if/when I do I would definitely go for a sports bra and spandex short shorts...

I work out in a mixed gym. I wear pants with a skirt on top, a baseball (3/4 sleeve t-shirt), and a tichel. There are plenty of religious women who work out and cover their hair in the gym. There are many who would consider themselves very religious, but at the gym don't cover their hair. I don't judge and don't really care, but this always confused me. If you believe that it is an obligation to cover your hair, why would you think that working out changes that?

Yeah always wondered the same.

on the rare occasions that i go to the gym, i usually wear a t-shirt (with tzitzis and undershirt), and my regular pants and kippah.
"Spiritual wants and instincts are as various in the human family as are physical appetites, complexions, and features, and a man is only at his best, morally, when he is equipped with the religious garment whose color and shape and size most nicely accommodate themselves to the spiritual complexion, angularities, and stature of the individual who wears it."

"The despotism of heaven is the one absolutely perfect government. An earthly despotism would be the absolutely perfect earthly government, if the conditions were the same; namely, the despot the perfectest individual of the human race, and his lease of life perpetual. But as a perishable perfect man must die, and leave his despotism in the hands of an imperfect successor, an earthly despotism is not merely a bad form of government, it is the worst form that is possible."

-Mark Twain
