    Diamonds aren't good to work out in.

    You dirty gym rat.

    A thief purloined more than $100,000 worth of jewelry from a woman’s locker at a downtown Chicago health club Tuesday, police said, according to the Chicago Tribune.

    Alexi Dohnal said she arrived at the East Bank Club Tuesday for a facial, changed into her spa robe and placed her eight-carat diamond rin and wedding band and her gold Cartier watch in a locker.

    She secured the locker with a pad lock, but a thief used some sort of lock cutter to gain entry and swipe the gems, cops said.

    East Bank Club isn't just any old club either -- it's been used by the likes of Oprah Winfrey and Barack Obama.

    The theft occurred sometime between noon and 2:30 p.m. Tuesday.

    "It is a high-profile gym," Dohnal said. "Everyone has nice cars and there are a lot of housewives with big rings, so I don't really stand out ... It is not a place where people are constantly clutching their bags or looking over their shoulders."

    Police have no leads.

    Most Chicagoans have no sympathy.
