Don't Be A Dick: Gym Etiquette

Here are some cues to mastering gym etiquette:

  1. Put your weights away when you are done using them. No one likes to clean up after you.
  2. If someone is about to perform an lift (particularly an Olympic/Power lift), do not stand directly in front of them. That eye contact is awkward and it can be distracting to them.
  3. Wipe you sweat off of equipment. Again, no one likes to clean up after you...especially bodily fluids.
  4. Don't leave a pile of chalk on the floor. Unless you want Jake to make you do burpees.
  5. Don't fart in a closed space where others are (ahem Jake).
