Maybe you're used to finding your latest fling at the bar, but what about the barre? For many regular gym goers (and their hot, sweaty bodies) the gym has become the newest hook up spot. 

A recent British study revealed that nearly 25 percent of gym-goers have had sex where they work out. More than half of the 2,000 people surveyed confessed that they've used the gym as a place to hook up. And if that shocks you, get this: 10 percent of people even admitted to taking a condom along with them, just in case.

Plus pheromones, the chemical that attracts your partners, are released in your sweat. 

Are we surprised that gym-goers are looking for a little lovin'? Not exactly. Whether you’re hooking up or fantasizing about it, like 70 percent of the women surveyed, you're certainly not alone.
