    Sounds like gun safe for the car is your only option then. As far as I'm concerned anybody that carries a gun should have one. There will always be a time at some point you and you gun will get separated, might as well do it securely. Leaving at home is never an option for me.

    Pocket-carry can be very useful, at the gym. With the right shorts, it needn't be visible or flop around. (This assumes you're simply using machines and doing floor exercises, not dancing around in an aerobics class or similar.)

    IMO, it's a better option than leaving valuables in the car or locker, if at a location known for car/locker break-ins.

    I take mine in and lock it in the locker. We don't have flimsy lockers though, they are quite substantial. Last Sunday afternoon, at the gym, I'm undressing to get into my gym cloths and pull the holster out to place in the locker. A conversation started with a couple of the guys and before you know it three of us had our carry pistols out for a comparison. It's all good.

    My gym sounds much yours, good neighborhood but crooks seem to know gym goers leave good things in their cars.

    I'm now one of those goobbers not wearing gym shorts. I started wearing regular shorts and belt, with my gun inside the waist ban just like always. Works for me. At 50 years old being fashionable in way less important to me.

    Thank you for a sensible answer to another "thread" where my answer would be--"wherever you want it to go". We can add this to the list of "wheres" or "whats" on securing or storing a firearm during all personal acivities that have included in the shower, in the toilet, in a kayak, on a bike, running/climbing/walking/jogging, in the car, in the house, in the store etal. By the way, when I am amorous with wifey and just cannot wait to put the firearm in the safe do any of you just leave it on in bed?

    I just leave mine in the glove compartment and lock the car. I'm not very far from the car due to the treadmills right next to the windows. Besides, I hope crooks will be sleep at 4am.

    Where does the gun go when I'm at the gym?

    How about a fanny pack designed
    for firearms.

    I usually put mine, holstered, in my gym bag then in the locker with a combo lock on it. Someone breaking into lockers will be noticed. If you feel that is not an option, a safe in the car is another option, as others have said. I use one when I can not carry somewhere. It is a gunvault. Tethered to seat frame.

    Leave it in your car in a safe that has a cable attached to the bottom of your seat or put it in your gym bag (safely of course) while in the car and then place your bag in your "locked" locker when your working out.

    You can also keep it in your pants. You don't want an indecent exposure citation.

    Gym parking lots are famous for break-ins. People leave their wallet under the seat while they work out, and the thieves know it.

    I'd do the fanny pack thing, or wear long sweatpants and an ankle holster.

    Get a small pocket pistol in stainless and have that as your gym carry gun. My wife has a beretta bobcat and she could stick that in her bra and no one would know.

    I workout several times a week and wear my Glock 30 in a belly band with my t-shirt untucked over it and my sweat pants. I've also found that a belt over the belly band helps to keep it extra secure and my rig doesn't move at all.
