In the gym, there are those who are there to get fit, lift weights, and sweat away the pounds and then there are those who are there to attract eye candy while “jogging” on the treadmill.

The Daily Mail reports that 26% percent of women wear make up to the gym, according to a recent study by British online beauty retail site

Experts suggest women who wear a full face of makeup to the gym burn fewer calories because they are more focused on how they look than on getting an effective workout.

Katherine Jenkins, opera singer and Dancing With The Stars season 14 runner up, was criticized for wearing a full face of makeup to the London Marathon, but it seems like many women would have done the same. Most of the women interviewed for the poll gave reasons such as habit, impressing the opposite sex, or “having a bad skin day” as reasons for wearing makeup.
