Top 10 Things You Should Never Do At The Gym!


10 Things You Do At The Gym But Should NOT What’s a place where a lot of strangers
are cramped together to sweat their guts out? A pat on your back if you said ‘the gym’! So do you have any idea about what to do in
order to escape a punch from a fellow gym goer? Okay, maybe we just exaggerated that one but
when so many people are stuffed together for some forced intimacy; you never know when
you land into trouble with another person. So we have come up with a practical guide
on things to steer clear off while at the gym, if you don’t want your backside kicked! Number 10. Flashing your assets
We all know you’ve been working out often and are the proud owner of a great body but
can’t you keep it to yourself? Everyone is busy working on their own share
of muscles and fat, your shirtless form will be better appreciated someplace else. This includes your time in the shower, like
by no means are you parading naked within anyone’s vision. You might not mind showing off your ‘things’
within the same sex but hello, it can be uncomfortable for the others so respect their privacy! Number 9. Resting on equipment
We’ve all come across people who are social media addicts and there is probably nothing
wrong in it, uhmm we aren’t sure of that. Anyway we aren’t worried about your addiction
as long as you can keep it out of the gym. Occupying equipment while you are busy scrolling
your Facebook feed or sending ‘important’ e-mails is definitely not a sign of good gym
etiquettes. What is worse than that? Sleeping on the machines and yes that happens,
yikes! Number 8. Hitting on the hottie
Yea we know you meet new people who share the same interest as yours and a friendly
hello poses no harm but what’s with that flirting? Err; didn’t you join the gym to tone up
your body and stay fit? We guess flirting has no role to play in that. So before you come up with yet another cheesy
line or ogle that hottie, remember you might have your membership cancelled. That my friend can happen so stay clear right
from the start! Number 7. Clinging to a machine
You aren’t a little kid who wants his toys all for himself. On a second thought even kids learn that toys
are meant to be shared with others, so what are you thinking while you occupy the treadmill
for a good 2 hours? Others in queue are waiting for their turn
on the equipment so hurry up! And yes the other way round, don’t give
tough looks to someone using a machine that you have set your eyes on. Give them some time before you give them the
glare! Number 6. Pump up the music
It’s great that you have the Chainsmokers playlist running while you work your ass off
but is there a need to make the entire gym listen to it? The person exercising next to you has his
adrenaline gushing at the sound of Coldplay and you could respect that. Tone down the volume to a bearable level so
that it doesn’t burst into other people’s ears over their own headphones. You could do that! Number 5. Annoying latecomer
When you are in the middle of a group session and a clumsy latecomer enters and creates
a chaos for everyone to be distracted enough to ruin the entire session, ever felt it? It’s irritating and annoying and distracting
and so on. Don’t be that latecomer! Even if you are late make sure you quietly
enter and disturb as less as possible. On the other hand if you reach the class well
before time, do not and we repeat DO NOT push people who are exiting a previous class in
order to reserve a nice spot! Number 4. Sweat on display
You are going to sweat while you work out, that’s natural and a common site at the
gym. But leaving your sweat dripping off the equipment;
is that even allowed? You wouldn’t want to use a machine if it
reeks of someone else’s sweat and that goes for others as well. Isn’t it easier to use a towel while to
tone exercise and cleanup after yourself? Like it really saves the others a lot of trouble
and is hardly any effort! Number 3. Visit as a patient
Your immunity gave up and you caught a cold, that’s okay and by no means do you have
to exercise and improve on it while you are still sick! There simply is no point in punishing your
body for giving up on you because in turn you are punishing other gym goers as well. They already are exercising amid a lot of
germs and you certainly are not going to derive any sadistic pleasure in passing them a disease! Or are you? Number 2. Blind eye to safety of others
Oh wow man, what strength you’ve got! Handling those big weights might have been
a tough task and so once you were done, you dropped them over! As a child we are taught to put our toys back
to where they belong and gym is an adult’s play area so the same rules apply. Littering weights can cause others to trip
over, so refrain from it. And by the way, it would be nice of you to
not make those grunting sounds while you are pushing yourself for more, it sure is annoying! Number 1. Ignoring others personal space
For the nth time, gym is not your personal place and so you need to keep in mind the
spatial needs of others as well. Standing up close to a person doing squats
or lifting weights will only cause you injuries, because yes they need SPACE! Oh and yes how many times did you jump over
a person doing push ups? Just come up with the truth and yes, you aren’t
doing that again because it’s rude! Did you come across such characters at the
