So that going to the gym does not turn into a complete disappointment, it is worth following the elementary rules that many people ignore.
Behavior in the gym implies a certain etiquette that not everyone knows about. New York-based celebrity fitness trainer Beck Dolan, founder of a nutrition and fitness company called Sweat With Bec and instructor of many Hollywood celebrities, solved this problem and told the Daily Mail what to do and what not to do while exercising in the gym. where other people train.
First of all, Beck asks everyone who used the simulators to clean up after themselves.
“Nothing is more annoying for both staff and other gym goers than having access to a sweat-soaked machine or not being able to find the right equipment because it hasn’t been put away properly,” she said.
The second thing that annoys a lot of gym goers is the person standing next to them, waiting for them to finish using one or another simulator.
“If someone is using something you want, please ask how much time they have left, let them finish their set in peace, instead of standing and watching them finish,” Beck explained, but flatly as long as the interests of others are not affected. For example, selfie lovers should remember that when taking a photo, they must remember that there should not be other people in the frame who are engaged at the same time and do not always look photogenic.

“If you’re filming your workout, make sure no one is on the video if you don’t have permission, and if you’re attending a class, ask the instructor for permission first,” Beck advised.
It’s good to keep conversations to a minimum in the gym so that it doesn’t affect the quality of your workouts, but you shouldn’t ignore the staff. It is better to say hello to a person and smile than to walk by with an indifferent look.
Dolan recommends always having deodorant with you, as well as taking up enough space so that others have enough. In particular, this applies to yoga classes that are held on rugs.
Finally, the celebrity trainer noted that a visitor to the gym should always be in contact with his instructor:
“If you need to leave class early, try to alert the instructor before you start, make sure you have a seat in the back, and leave discreetly.”
Among other things that should not be done in the gym, Beck named the following:
do not spend too much time on selfies, using the room as a personal photo booth; do not turn on loud music on your phones. To do this, there are headphones; do not turn on the sound and speakerphone on the phone; do not carry a metal bottle of water with you. A loud falling sound may frighten or unnerve others; do not make too much noise. The trainer explained that the “sounds you make while exercising” should never “sound like you’re having sex”. Don’t ignore the instructor. If you are unable to attend class, please let us know in advance.
