For many, the gym is a place to focus on fitness and health, 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, and do you really need photographic evidence that you’re at the gym? You’re only hogging the mirror from the members that actually need it to focus on their technique. And taking selfies at the gym? Just stop.
I know we all get annoyed at the invasion of our personal space. From the locker rooms to the equipment, there is an unspoken rule to leave distance if available. For instance, if the gym is practically empty, there’s no need to hop on the treadmill right next to someone who’s already been running.
Most can relate to at least some of these gym pet peeves. If you read through this list and realize you are one of these people, now’s the time to start making some changes.
