You may be new to the gym, or maybe you’ve been going for years. No matter what gym you choose, there are rules to be followed. They may not be plastered on the wall or explained in your membership packet, but there is an unspoken set of guidelines that should always be followed.
- Eat fast food elsewhere. Most people cannot eat that food and not gain a pound. They are usually at the gym trying to burn it off. Be considerate and leave the “smell good” food for another time. Also, try avoiding the food channels on the community TV. News and sports channels are usually safe for everyone.
- Respect others wearing i-Pods and head devices. If you wave, make eye-contact, or yell and they do not remove their earphones, chances are they do not want to talk. This could be their only time to themselves so respect it and get in touch with them on their way out.
