If you’re a fitness freak like me or spend countless hours in the gym rather than your own home you know what goes on wants you step a foot in the gym. But at one point or another we’ve all seen nasty, irritating, and confusing behavior by others at a gym or reaction center. Like for instance it are giant puddles of sweat left on machines, a meathead hoarding dumbbells in a packed weight room, or that one old man or women nude in the locker room. Nevertheless, for some people common respect seems to disappear in a gym setting now days.
However, the common pet peeves I have always experience is preventable if people follow my advice, then everyone’s workout will go peacefully and smoothly. One of my many pet peeves is when a crazy sweaty people do not clean there machine because sweat spread diseases. For example, they continually leave giant puddles of sweat all over workout equipment. Not only sweat is a problem with me, but also people who do not pick up after themselves. Such as free weights, foam rollers, towels, and yoga mats. My subjection is it back where it belongs if you use it.
In addition, I am quite sure others around you do not want the most common decease in gyms now days so be kind and pick up after yourself. Arrebota2 People should not hog equipment because it waste time and prevent others from working out. I can’t stand when people who grab one piece of equipment and won’t let you work in. For example, every time I go into 24-hour fitness in Kansas City. Sadly, there is always that one male or female who puts their bag down next to the squat rack and reserve it like it is a plane ticket.
However, even after they get on the squat rack they spend about twenty-five percent of the time lifting, and the next seventy-five percent cursing around talking to friends or staring at mirror acting like a peacock. If you do not want to work out fully get off the machine and let others who are waiting use it because they do not want to spend all day waiting at a gym waiting. In my gym, it is common to see nude people walking around the locker room because they are not courteous or respectful.
The most people who do these things are the elderly people. I don’t know why but they feel like it’s okay to walk around the locker room nude for hours and not try to cover their sleeves. I mean dropping a towel quickly to pull on your clothes is one thing, but standing at the mirror brushing your teeth while completely naked is another. If this is a problem for you take my advice and tell the manager. Ask if they could hang a nice, and polite sign saying to “practice covering yourself”.
For some people they might not know what goes on in a gym setting because they do not work out every day. Then again, If you are a fitness freak like me than, you must have experience at least two out of the three examples I talked about. On the other hand, if you are one of those people who cause my pet peeves please be responsible for your actions and treat others Arrebota3 with respect. Try to prevent the nasty, and irritating things that goes on in the gym so everyone’s workout can go peacefully and smoothly.
