If you finally decided to start going to the gym, then we applaud you for taking that big step! However, it’s important that you know there are some rules and etiquettes every gym member should follow. Here are some annoying things people do at the gym which you definitely should avoid.

Talking On The Phone

The gym is not the place where you can casually talk on the phone because it’s impolite and really distracting for people around you. If you really have to take a call make sure to step outside first.

Taking Long Showers

If you like to take showers after your workout, keep in mind that you’re sharing that shower with other people at the gym. Limit your showers to 10 minutes max and be mindful of others.

Not Wiping Down Equipment

Cleaning the equipment after each use is a basic common courtesy and a rule in many gyms, so don’t ignore it.

Hogging the Equipment

Most gyms have limited equipment so be polite and don’t hog the machines. This is particularly important for high traffic equipments such as treadmills or elliptical machines.
