It’s never a bad time for a refresher course on gym safety but after the recent news that a gym member in Iowa, USA, died when he dropped 140 kilos on himself during a bench press, it’s more important than ever to know how to use the gym safely.. Accidents in the gym are entirely preventable and while we all get small injuries from time to time, an activity that is.

Exercising proper etiquette while exercising at the gym creates a safe, pleasant and user-friendly environment.

  • just ordered my carton of cigarettes and stole a bunch of towels now I’m gonna lay it on every machine in the gym so no one can workout but me mwuahahahhahahaa

  • honestly this video sucked 10 fake azz gym commandments, honestly other than the humor, who the hell doesn’t stretch before they workout shit you asking for injury asap, or a crap, or pull some muscle, next who occupies 5 machines at a real gym you don’t do circuits at a real gym you do straight sets otherwise it turns into you are hogging the bloody machine,only way you do a circuit is if you do it in a way that you don’t hog anything, anyways thats all i got to say for you dumb asses that think some of the stupid ass shit said was serious,have a nice day

  • Anyone else almost shit their pants during the “fake spot” and he dropped what looked like 315 on him? I jumped like it was a horror movie! hahahaha!

  • She hates cell phones on the floor. I disagree you may have a family call business call work call or music or following a workout regime maybe her job is working at a gym but everyone else have lives

  • The people with the best bodies are NOT slamming weights and leaving a mess. People with the mediocre, ass hole body and mentality always slamming weights and causing a scene.

  • I don’t think they could’ve picked a better person than Terry Crews. And the fact they gave him braids makes this video THAT much funnier

  • Great video Dr. too many times all these happen. Most people don’t say anything to those doing these things, but a lot of these should be common etiquette. Probably my biggest problem is when people do not put their weights away or stay on one piece of equipment for 20 minutes not letting others work in with them��

  • Actually one of my biggest problems I have with folks are the ones who come in with a gallon container and sit at the water fountain filling the whole damn thing up when all you wanted was a sip of water. I mean how much damn water do people need right where they are lifting? I understand your supposed to get your water in, but i think they missed the whole point. You dont get your whole daily water intake in one to two hours lol its supposed to be throughout the whole day.

  • Come to my gym please Terry and smack some common courtesy into them. I have had to ask some of the people (politely) a couple of times “can u please put the equipment back when u finished”. They ofc say I didn’t use that when they blatantly did. And those mobile phone idiots GEEZ they are the worst. Some are loud but it just makes my mind boggle seeing them sitting on a machine or bench chatting away and i have done 2 exercises (8 sets of 10 reps) in the meantime yet they haven’t pushed a single weight and when they finish the convo they move to another machine. GRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!

  • the bottom line is that gyms sell too many memberships then they blame the gymrats fro being human in a way too crowded environment… stuff it lady

  • He is right! Some others include bringing a gym bag on the floor and to each machine you go to; that’s what lockers are for! And the screamer/grunters. If you have to scream to do the weight, it’s too much for you!

  • I’ve had this happen to me at least 4-5 times a year where I’ll be using a station and someone will come right and ask if they can hop on it real quick to finish their last set of reps, which in my book is the #1 rudest thing to do at a gym.

  • Those five crimes are gym Hogs… also you have weight droppers…. Space Cadets…. Space Invaders…. cherry pickers people who randomly cherry pick their exercises…. mirror blockers!

  • I don’t understand giving your nice over-the-ear headphones a sweat bath. They just seem so out of place to me while working out.

  • I don’t wanna start any trouble so i won’t say where I go……but there’s a few people in there that don’t KNOW exactly what they are doing!!! Another thing is THE EGO!!!! A few dudes (that have a really nice physique and are very strong)…..really really have a problem. I have a decent shape to me, nothing to write home about….but some dudes will come and do what I’ve termed “FAKE LIFTING”,like DUDE, YOU WHERE JUST ON A MACHINE WAAAYYY OVER THERE……AND THEY LEAVE ALL THEIR STUFF: WATER BOTTLE, TOWELS, GYM BAGS………COME OVER WHERE I’M AT,JUMP ON AN IDENTICAL MACHINE AND DO THESES CRAZY ACTION TYPE REPS….”FOR 1 SET”…..THEN GO BACK TO THE MACHINE/BENCH WHERE THEY WERE….been going for about 6 months and as of 2 wks ago….I just close my eyes and wait til the fuckery is over….I’m ME and am only in comp with MYSELF……SMDH
