Have a Little Gym Etiquette, Please!

Posted on May 17, 2011 at 10:28 AM
Yes, it happened again today. I got up early and headed for a great Sunday workout at the gym thinking it would be empty and I could have a peaceful workout. When I got there it was pretty empty, but the few people there managed to annoy me. I think we need some gym legislation that requires gym goers to pass a gym etiquette test before they are allowed to work out. If I owned a gym, here would be my rules:

-If you pick up weights from the rack, step away from the rack for your workout. Otherwise, no one else can get to the weights. You have an entire gym to work out. Do you really need to be that close to the mirror? Not to mention you might clock someone in the head like the idiot who almost did that to me this morning.

-Don't use the gym equipment as your personal table for you drinks, cell phones, water bottles, etc. Otherwise, other paying members cannot use the equipment. This also goes for sitting on the equipment for 20 minutes and doing nothing, but chatting.

-Feel free to socialize with other members, but have some class. Is it really appropriate to discuss the details of your divorce in this public forum?

-If you show up late for a class, go to a spot where there is room. Don't put your yoga mat or step practically on top of mine.

-Working out makes whatever is on your body smell more. As I am working out and breathing heavily, I don't want to smell your bad BO, cigarette smoke, or perfume and cologne.

-The same goes for what is in your body. If you had too many beans for lunch, maybe you should skip the gym class where a room full of people are enclosed in a hot room being subjected to your stink bombs.

-Wipe down your equipment. I don't want to sit in my own butt sweat, so I certainly don't want to sit in yours.

-No excessive grunting that sounds like you are passing a bowling ball.
