I was totally that girl today at Anytime Fitness....talking on my cellphone while walking on the treadmill...I know..it's rude...and I won't do it again!
DNA Puddles There is nothing quite so icky as picking up a slippery weight or lying down in a stranger's pool of sweat. If you forget to bring a towel, use your sweatshirt or the paper towels provided by the club.
Space Hogs In the gym, weight equipment is considered communal property, so don't sit on a machine while you rest between sets. It's common courtesy to stand up and let a fellow gym member "work in" with you -- that's gym-speak for share nicely.
Machine Bullies If Space Hogs had an equally evil twin, it would be the pests who hover nearby, ready to pounce the instant you go over the 30 minute time limit on the elliptical machine or who practically snatch the weights out of your hands before you've finished your last rep.
Onerous Odors Extreme body odor, coffee breath, stinky feet, flatulence, overpowering perfumes.
Noisy Neighbors Save your bathetic blah blah blah for elsewhere. In the gym, no one wants to hear it, especially if you're yakking on a cellphone at a high decibel level about what's for dinner.
