Do You Wear Jewelry When You Work Out?

I feel my wedding rings get a nice cleaning when I wear them while swimming laps, but I have a friend who fears that her rings will slip off in the pool. When it comes to other jewelry though, I like to have my ears, wrists (except for my heart rate monitor), and neck clear since I get hot and sweaty. Not only that, but things dangling around me while trying to work out would be so annoying. What about you . . .

I went to Oz with my family and picked out an opal and my dad had made it into a ring when I was 17 - I haven't taken it off (apart from to change fingers, I like to move it around) since. When I jog I take my watch too.

Usually the only jewelry I wear is my wedding and engagement ring and stud earrings, so I typically don't bother taking it off for workouts. If I happen to be wearing a necklace or bracelet (which is very rare) I usually take it off.

wedding band and engagement rings and I'll occasionally leave my earrings on if they are small studs or pearls. Oh, and I can't workout with my watch either!

Since I go to the gym straight from home in the mornings, and return to home afterwards, I leave all jewelry at home.

I'll wear stud earrings, but I take off dangly earrings, necklaces, bracelets and rings. Sometimes I take my watch off too.

I wear my Tiffany & Co. necklace + my ring and stud earrings but no huge earrings or bracelets because they will annoy me.

I take off all my jewelry, including my wedding set. I have to -- I do free weights, and I wear weight-training gloves. And yes, I get hit-on frequently. It's annoying.

I was gonna say that I never wear jewelry while working out or running, but actually I keep all my earring studs in, so... I had to say almost all my jewelry comes off

I don't wear much jewelry; just my diamond studs and my wedding/engagement rings. So I just leave them on because I think I'd probably lose them if I took them off, lol.

I can't imagine wearing jewelry when I am working out! I would be so scared that my rings would fall off or something equally as bad! thats just me!

i practice tae kwon do, while we mostly kick, and use very little punch (always in chest for men, belly for women), i don´t take away nor my wedding ring, nor another cute ring that belongs to my mom, but which i´ve "stolen" from her :P

Never necklaces or rings...especially rings because my fingers tend to swell when I exercise...and I HATE that feeling.

Just simple stud earrings and a simple necklace. If I'm in spin the necklace has to go... it drives me nuts when its tapping on my chest.

If I go swimming, everything comes out except for stud earrings. I have a necklace I wear all the time that I can hear clinking around in the pool when I do flip turns, and seeing my rings on my hands in front of me is distracting. If I'm just conditioning or running outside or on the treadmill I keep everything on. I've lost too many things in locker rooms by forgetting them or having them fall out of bags.

The only things I always wear are 2 rings, but I take them off when going to the gym. I don't like to lift weights with them on

i have a necklace that i rarely take off (think the last time was because i HAD to for an MRI last spring) and a watch that i wear always. i actually have moments of panic when i take the watch off to shower and forget to put it on right away. i feel weird without. everything else comes off when i exercise...if i were swimming, that might change, though.
