The gym is a place to focus on fitness and health, at least for most people, but, unfortunately, there are some members who treat the place like their own personal playground. From the grunters to the hoverers to the talkers, the lack of respect is not what you signed up for.

For the offensive fitness buffs, there’s no need to document your workouts. No one cares about what you look like lifting weights in the mirror.

Also, do you really need photographic evidence that you’re at the gym? You’re only hogging the mirror from the members who actually need it to focus on their technique.

And taking selfies at the gym? Just stop. Not to mention that it may be dangerous.

Most people get annoyed at the invasion of their personal space. From the locker rooms to the equipment, there is an unspoken rule to leave distance, if possible.

Most can relate to at least some of the following gym pet peeves.
