Group Therapy: How Should I Start Conversation at the Gym?

This question is an excerpt from Group Therapy in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

I've been scoping out a cute guy at the gym and exchanging glances for about a month, and I want to make a bold move before the moment passes. Chitchat at our gym is rare and, though we go at the same time each day, we've never had the opportunity to strike up a conversation. He is a focused runner and gets in a serious sweat zone, but he has checked me out enough for me to know he thinks I'm attractive (usually when I'm walking in and he's walking out).

One Saturday I mistakenly cut him off as we left the parking lot and he grinned and let me over. Since then, I try and smile whenever I get a chance without seeming like a total creep and it appears he is doing the same. So, my dilemma is this: Should I leave a note on his car that says something like "I'd write you a "Missed Connection," but Internet dating freaks me out. We should hang out sometime when we actually talk and are not running on treadmills." (Wording thanks to my BFF.) Or, should I just sit tight and keep trying to strike up a conversation. Or at least a "hi" first. I'm shy, but confident and willing to make a fool of myself. That said, is a note too presumptuous at this point?
