I am sure anyone who has had a blog of the athletic type has at one point bitched about people’s general lack of gym etiquette. Now it is my turn.
Get off your cell phone– I find this exceptionally annoying. First of all, if you are capable of talking on the phone while working out, you aren’t working out hard enough. And second, oh…its rude.
Dress yourself completely– Complete= Bottoms, tops and ladies please PLEASE please wear a bra. Please. (I am going out on a limb here and guessing men do not see this as a problem.)
The locker room is not your bedroom– Is it really necessary to blow dry your body hair while standing naked in front of the only mirror in the locker room? I know the answer- no it is not necessary. This of course doesn’t stop people from doing it…or staying naked while they apply their makeup. Get dressed. Save the show for your boyfriend.
Don’t be a stalker– You do not have to stand next to the machine I am on or in front of the weight bench. I see you. And because you are breathing down my neck like a thirsty dog, I am going to do extra reps.
Don’t stare– Um, this is easy…it’s creepy.
Put the equipment back properly- You think they mark those weight stands for their health? No, they do it so the 10lb weights end up in the 10lbs spot. I know, reading is tough.
Clean up after yourself– Don’t be pig; wipe up your sweat. It is about as unsanitary as a person can get and oh yeah, its super gross too.
There are so many more I could list but I thought I would open it up to my readers: What are your biggest gym pet-peeves?
