Gym Etiquette

27 Aug

Don’t rush around in the gym. There is so much equipment that can injure you.  Move slowly and with purpose at the gym.

If you have questions, ask them! Leave your ego at the door.  Gym equipment can be very dangerous! Protect yourself with the knowledge of how to correctly execute gym equipment.  Ask a staff representative for proper equipment use.

Take advantage of personal trainers.  They can inform you about the gym and what type of program and equipment you need to be focusing on to get closer to your goals.

Avoid blocking the mirrors, or standing in front of the dumbbell rack.  Share equipment and weights. Don’t sit on a machine in between sets.  “Work in” with other gym members.  Remove weight plates when you finish.  Put weights back where you found them.

Wipe off equipment when you are finished.  Meaning, don’t sweat out your neighbor.  Utilize a locker.  Most gyms have a policy that gym bags cannot be carried around the gym. Gym bags and other such material can be potential tripping hazards.
Time manage your workout.  most gyms have time policies with their Cardio equipment, but use common sense here, if the gym is busy limit your time on a specific cardio machine to 20 mins, clean the machine then move onto another one.  Be mindful of others.
And lastly, always carry around my muscle building phone apps so I am with you every step of the way.  Get them today!
