All right, ladies and gentlemen, the new year is upon us and as we know, every January since the beginning of humankind carries heavy attendance on gym floors across the world. This is mainly due to “New Year's Resolutioners” getting a jump on their goals. It gets a bit hairy because there is no “crash course” for newcomers to the gym. No one is there to teach them the gym floor etiquette that could stop the disruption that often occurs when new individuals arrive. The purpose of this article is to show noobs (and some folks who have been there a while) what they should and should not be doing while training.
There definitely are many more do’s and don'ts, but these are the major ones that need to be brought to the attention of everyone walking through those doors. The gym is a place to accomplish goals. Every person present is there for a specific reason, and their path to achievement should not interfere with another’s ability to work on theirs. If you follow this list, you should be well on your way.
