Sure, you’re sweaty (and maybe a little stinky), but that doesn’t mean you should throw etiquette out of the window at the gym. So whether you’re a newbie or a gym rat, you need to follow the right etiquettes.
Rule #1: Use the Right weights:
Can’t use heavy weights? Ask your gym instructor for lighter weights
Rule #2: Ask for help:
Aren’t sure how to use a particular machine or how to do a certain exercise? Don’t try faking it. It’s very easy to hurt yourself or the machine if you don’t know what you’re doing. Ask for help.
Rule #3: Clean the machine after use:
It is required to clean your machine after use. Surely you wouldn’t like working on a machine that is dirty. Carry a towel and clean each machine with the cleaner provided.
Rule #4: Maintain proper hygiene
Wear clean clothes while working out. Wear dry and closed-top athletic shoes .Take a shower after your workout if you feel you need one.
Rule #5: Use the equipment properly:
Do not sit on the equipment’s between sets. Do not use weights while on the cardio machine.
Misusing the equipment can result in injury and/or damage to the equipment; follow directions and instructions. Ask help from the fitness staff for instructions.
Rule #6: Get to it:
Do not slow down your exercising by talking with your friends during your workout. When you talk to others, there is a tendency to move slower and to dally over the equipment rather than focusing on the exercise.
Rule #7: Try to keep the ‘sound effects’ to a minimum:
Grunting with exertion is acceptable, but yelling is a complete no-no.
Rule #8: Put on antiperspirant before arriving at the gym:
If you have a problem with body odor, it will make the environment more unpleasant for everyone. It does not matter what your age, physique or gender, a little deodorant goes a long way in maintaining good interpersonal relations at the gym.
