Gym Etiquette


I had a recent experience at the gym that has left me to write a PSA. Now we all know the basic public etiquette but do we know gym etiquette…totally different.  Here, I will layout do’s and don’ts at the gym so you and the others around you can have a great gym experience.

DON’T

Lay your mat right next to someone….  C’mon! Guys, you wouldn’t use the urinal right next to someone in the restroom, would you?  Same applies here. I don’t really know the equivalent for girls but you get the idea.

DO

Lay your mat a healthy distance away. I would say 5 feet is a good starting point.  If the gym is empty…make the distance a little longer.

______

DON’T

This is very similar to the one above.  Don’t jump on the treadmill or bike right next to another person when there are 20 others! Personal space please!

squat

DO

Grab one about 2 down. That would be fine with me!

DON’T

Do not take a million selfies while people are trying to workout. You are really getting in the way and although your insta-followers love seeing your toned tummy, people in the gym could care less.

DO

If you want to snap pics of yourself at the gym, make sure you are not surrounded by people actually working out. Just don’t get in their way. It’s rude. Do it in the locker room or find a space where no one is around.

______

DON’T

Please don’t be a gym hoarder. This is totally one of my biggest pet peeves! UGH! They take all the equipment and don’t share. So obnoxious! Just don’t do.

DO

Take 1 or 2 pieces of equipment and put them back immediately after finished. And if you must use a million pieces, please share when someone asks.

______

DON’T

Do not take pictures of girls and/or guys while they are working out.  Just don’t do it. It’s gross! There is no DO for this one!

______

These are just a few of the things that irritate me at the gym. I’m sure others have experienced similar situations! Please drop a line in the comment section below about your gym experiences!
