Gym Etiquette: “THAT GUY” and Other Annoying Gym People
Going to the gym is sort of a ritual for me. I take it very seriously, and I love the time I get to spend with my thoughts and my personal goals that I try to reach. While I’m there, I do my best to keep to myself and be respectful of others trying to do the same thing.
Problem is, every now and then, there will be that one oblivious person who is inconsiderate, or just absolutely naïve to the fact that they are annoying others trying to get their workouts done!
Yup, we’re talking about “THAT GUY!” You all know him! That one guy who… you know…. well… let me tell you!
Take this guide and do your best to NOT be “THAT GUY” or one of those annoying people, at the gym. Don’t be one of these 10 most annoying people at the gym.
Coach: You can do it! Give me one more, come on one more! ONE MORE PUSH!
Coach: Good job! But next time, try not to bend your elbows too much, that’s not good for your form. Keep them tucked!
Me: … ummmm…. do I know you?

BONUS ANNOYING GYM THING FOR OC PEOPLE LIKE ME:
One 45 pound weight on the right side, one 25 pound weight and two 10 pound weights on the other side….. yes they may weigh the same…. but THEY’RE NOT THE SAME IN MY HEAD AND IT DRIVES ME CRAZY!!! Sorry… I’m OC like that…. Is it just me?
When it comes down to it, the gym is more than just your place to work out; the gym is a community! So have some gym etiquette and be more considerate of the people around you there.
On the other hand, don’t be afraid to go to the gym just because you don’t know all the rules and practices; you’ll learn as you go along. Just going to the gym is already a step ahead for a better and healthier lifestyle.
