Ken's Rules to Gym Etiquette


by Ken Hunt

Just some simple suggestions to make your gym experience good for you—and everyone around you. I call it “Ken’s Rules of Gym Etiquette.”

Share: If you’re doing multiple sets on a machine, it’s common courtesy to let others work in during your rest periods. This may not always be practical, but offer to share whenever you can.

Clean-up: Please don’t walk away from a machine, leaving a pool of sweat behind. Always bring a towel with you and wipe the machines down when you’re finished. At Steel Gym, we have paper towels and sprays strategically located for this purpose.

Leave no trace: Don’t you just love the person who leaves four million pounds on the leg press machine? Pick up after yourself. Your mother isn’t around to it for you anymore. Always put your weights back when you’re finished.

Don’t hog the treadmill: Some gyms have time limits on cardio machines during busy hours. There’s a reason for that, and you should obey it. And no, throwing your towel over the display doesn’t fool anyone.

Keep it down: Most gym-goers I know have seen That Guy or That Girl. The one pumping away on the treadmill while screaming into a cell phone. Is someone really that important ? Unless it’s an emergency, save your chats for after your workouts.

Cover it up: I respect the confidence that allows some people to walk around the locker room naked. Know what else I respect? Seeing you wearing a towel after your shower to keep the locker room a comfortable place for everyone What’s that smell? When you’re headed to the gym,
please go easy on the cologne and perfume. It’s almost, but not quite, as bad as body odor. And while we’re on the subject, please take your gym clothes home and wash them. Trust me, everyone will love you for it.
