Do you believe there is such a thing as gym ettiquite? And what do you think those unwritten rules are? My second home has become the gym in the past couple of months (and I am almost to the 20 lbs lost milestone! Yahoo). I love the feeling if getting stronger , building up a sweat, gaining new muscles. Yay. My gym luckily has a no cell phone conversation rule while in the gym (only in the lobby) which is great. One thing I have noticed is that sometimes when the gym is completely empty during sometimes I go, there will be rows and rows of machines open and someone uses the one right next to me. Ah! I want space. Lol. Do you have any gym pet peeves? Happy exercising yall!

Yes! That is a very good point too. I am guilty of not always bringing one but I am always sure to wipe it down after use! Thats another pet peeve - people not sanitizing their machines after use. Icky!

Yes ANYONE bringing in a cell phone and using it!!! What is so important that the world won't go on if you don't make a call?? PS I HATE cell phones in public. :O)

Me too. It feels harmless enough if youre on a machine sending a text or watching a show but disturbing others around you by making calls? So obnoxious!!

Same here. I prefer going to the gym when it's empty.

Me too! I feel like I have a bubble. And it also makes it so much hotter when there are people everywhere. Lol. Hope youre having a good day!

I haven't been to the gym, so I don't know the rules. But seeing other friends, I think I can manage.

I never go to the gym. Since I am a physiotherapist, I can do some exercises to keep me fit. But I think a gym is the best way to strengthen the muscles with the use of machines.

Nice. That sounds like a very cool job! Do you like it? And I agree. I definitely feel so much better since I have started going on a regular basis!!
