Gym Etiquette

In life, there are written rules … and then there are unwritten rules. I believe one of the unwritten rules is that when you are working out at the gym and you are using a machine or the free weights, you do a rep, rest for 1-2 minutes and repeat this process until your set is done. What you do NOT do is one rep … and then pull out your phone and sit there for the next 20 minutes searching the internet or talking to someone on your phone. You’re not the only one who wants to use the weights asshole! If you want to socialize, go to a bar. I’m here to workout … and you should be also. Like a civilized person … I try to be courteous to people around me. I understand people’s time is important … as is mine. I do my workout and move on to the next machine, making the machine available for the next person. Another unwritten rule is that you can only work out on ONE machine at a time. I’m sure you’ve run into the asshole that has his keys, water bottle and jacket spread out among three machines. I walk up to a machine to use it and he mumbles “Oh, I’m using that, bro.” Really … because to me it looks like your using the machine you’re on. Not this one! It blows me away how oblivious and self-important people have become!
