5 gym etiquettes that all men must observe

No matter what workout you’re doing or what kind of gym you frequent, either boutique fitness studio or a classic, chain gym, there are unspoken rules you should be following.

Have great gym etiquette

Have you ever been to the gym, excited to achieve your fitness goals but 10 minutes into your workout, all you want to do is get out of there. For those who make the gym unbearable, here are five gym etiquettes to observe:

Wipe down:

The fact is we go to the gym to sweat. In fact, some would even argue that you’re not putting in your all if you aren’t sweating. Whether or not that’s true, the point is to guarantee safe hygiene, you should wipe down all equipments you use once you’re done.

Headphone rule:

Actually, most people at the gym are very helpful and if you ask them nicely, they most likely will help you with equipments or whatever little favor you need. However, some people like to focus in the gym and they have headphones on. For such people, please leave them be.

Don’t pick up chicks at the gym:

Let’s be honest, girls do not go to the gym to try and meet guys. Sorry guys! There are so many other ways you could meet women that doesn’t involve you having to interrupt their workouts with your staring or bad pickup lines.

Pick things back:

Another big point is that if you use a piece of equipment, like a dumbbell, medicine ball or a mat, then please ALWAYS, return it where you found it. Yes, it can be tedious to tidy up after a pretty strenuous set, but not only is it respectful to other people, plus you may  burn a few more calories!

After workout:

Of course, you should work out of the gym feeling energized but also looking and smelling fresh. Thus, use the showers but don’t hug the benches with your towels and clothing, lounging around chatting in the nude or over-grooming yourself in public view.

Check out these gym etiquette rules. Please add any more you may have in the comment section.
