    How to ask a girl out on a group fitness class?

    Hello! So, there’s this really cute girl on a group fitness class that I’m also attending (similar to bodypump). I’ve been wondering how I could talk to her or even ask her out sometime. The thing is, I don’t want to be creepy, and I don’t want her to feel uncomfortable on the next classes if she’s not interested. Basically here are my options:

    Before class: There are several people waiting for the class to begin outside the room. No one’s talking, except if someone came with a friend. Starting a conversation in that situation might put her on a spot.

    During the class: Not really an option. There might be a little time after we get the equipment ready, or when we’re putting the equipment back after the class.

    After the class: Everybody is hurrying to shower. Waiting until she’s finished would be creepy, as there’s no cafe or any other excuse to stay after the class. It would be too obvious that I’m waiting for her.

    Any tips? Thanks!

    Based on what the description of the class I would shoot for before, or after if you caught her leaving or something. Don’t worry about being creepy or anything, just start a casual conversation, doesn’t have to be super intense and just work your way up from there. We’re all just human!

    Yes, I think before the class would be best. I haven’t seen her for a while though, the class is only once per week, and participants change a little. I’ve been thinking about an excuse to go to talk to her when I see her again, clearly a direct approach would’n be good in this case. If I somehow mention that I like her, she will assume that it’s only because of her looks, because I don’t really know her. However, she seems like a sweet person too. Maybe I could ask her recommendations for other group classes… For me it’s quite difficult to make the conversation casual with a girl I’m interested in. It would be more natural just to say how I feel. It also doesn’t help, that usually she’s there with her friend. Damn, I’m overcomplicating this…

    Before the class, ask her if she’s going to the same class and mentioned how you’ve seen her around.

    Unfortunately no. On this week, I didn’t have time to participate in that class. I haven’t seen her after starting this thread, so maybe she was only participating a few times. However, it’s common to see pretty girls on those classes, but starting a casual conversation in that environment seems like an impossible task. It’s so easy to come off as a creep (or maybe that’s all in my head).
