For gym newbies, it might seem like there’s some secret code of conduct when you first step foot in a gym, but gym etiquette rules are.

Your personal trainer will provide support and guidance, constantly pushing you to get better results. However, every gym has its own personal training etiquette. If you are new to fitness, there are certain mistakes you can make unknowingly. Gym Etiquette #6.

Monopolizing Workout Equipment. Some gyms have tons of machines while others don’t have much at all. If your gym has few machines, you can look like a real ass if you monopolize a certain piece of equipment too long.

This is a common problem of bench press freaks who act like there’s no other exercise in the world.

  • I agree with everything but the last point is a bit wrong… It is amazing to get as much advice as possible and getting tips of how to workout is always welcome i cant belive ppl can feel attacked just by getting an advice… Cmon ppl what is this? Planet fitness? Gym fail videos show us what happened when someone refused to get advice. XD

  • These two kids at the gym I unfortunately have to go to they act like they’re at the mall arcade acting like clowns so I called them out on it in a nice way and they wanted to fight me, wtf!!.

  • ” have you ever been in any of these solution? ” ” of course you have!” Ok hold up I’m a kid 9 year old and dose it look I can afford a membership no I only have 15 and 57 cents

  • I train through the pain anyway. I messed up my knee by a bad stretch for a little while worked out anyway. I feel stronger now for it.

  • There are some of people who think they are gym trainers and give advice to others, and try to talk to girls who are workout. that’s annoying.

  • Honestly, I don’t mind if someone wants to help me correct my form. I actually really appreciate it since I’m trying to get into fitness, and I barely even know how to use a quarter of those equipments.

    The only time I mind is when you’re clearly using it as an excuse to hit on me. That’s it.

  • When I was new at the gym I was using a piece of equipment wrong and could have damaged my shoulder. Fortunately, someone explained and showed me the right way. Years later I’m still grateful.

  • Exactly there’s nothing wrong with having a rest day or two there’s a quite a few people that actually go to the gym everyday sometimes twice every day which makes no sense this is the reason why most people never make any progress but never let their body have a rest day also I have noticed that more old people never wipe off there machines
