Let's be honest: the biggest perk your gym has to offer isn't the complimentary towels or the four different bikram yoga classes. It's the hot guys lifting weights. Think about it — do you catch yourself lingering outside the weight room, peering in at the exercisers and getting entranced by all the grunting?
