There have been a couple of things that really pee me off at the gym recently, and so I thought I would write down my own "gym rules". It made me feel much better to get it off my chest - feel free to add as many as you wish.
1 If I arrive with a baseball cap over my eyes and my earphones in I do not want to talk to anybody.
2 Tapping me on the shoulder, making me remove my earplugs, just to say hi really annoys me again I do not want to talk to anybody.
3 If I am working out on a machine and can barely breathe please stop trying to talk to me.
4 A gym may be where you usually pick up girls, but they are usually in the cardio section go over there and pick them up leave me alone.
5 If I pick up some weights, dont feel that you have to pick ones up heavier than mine, then struggle to do the exercise it will make you look - stupid.
6 The gym is not a fashion parade, if you must wear only thin strips of spandex, please have the type of body that looks good in it.
7 I do not care or even look at how much weight you can lift, so trying to show off is only going to give you an injury.
8 Small grunting noises while working out are fine sounding like you are having wild passionate humpies is not cool.
9 Walking at 1mph on the treadmill while chatting to your girlfriend on the phone is not really a workout you will get more exercise pacing up and down on the phone at home so go home and stop hogging the equipment.
10 I can see that you are staring at me, please go stare at somebody else or at least do it inconspicuously. Standing right next to me watching me work out is freaky!
11 The chat up line so, do you work out?, never works in a gym think about it.
12 Working out for 10 minutes, then going over to the smoothie bar for an oreo, double chocolate chunk shake, is not going to help you lose weight. Note smoothie does not equal healthy.
