I went to the gym this morning to crank out my 3-mile run and saw something that I have honestly never seen before at the gym that disgusted me.
Not that I am some gym etiquette nazi or anything, but there are a few things that I absolutely can not stand at the gym, and this one made the list.
When I looked over at this lady today, I was like:
The lady on the bike in front of me was riding the bike, without shoes.
For some reason, this (mixed with the massive amount of sweat that she left all over the bike post-workout) honestly made me gag.
Am I the only one that this grosses out?
I refuse to believe that I am.
This got me to thinking about the things that I believe are breaking gym etiquette. So here we go. Let me know if any of these things bother you too, or if I am in fact, just a gym nazi.
1.) Grunting. It’s just not okay. I don’t want to hear your loud gorilla sounds. If you need to me to tell you that you’re a man, I’ll do that if it means that I don’t have to listen to your obnoxious grunting over the sounds of my headphones anymore.
2.) People who don’t clean up their sweat. I mean, come on.
3.) People who are CONSTANTLY staring at your speed while you’re on the treadmill next to them. Oh, I’m sorry, I didn’t realize that I was running a race today.
4.) People who sit on the bikes to watch TV and not actually bike.
5.) Girls who wear a lot of makeup to the gym. Stop making me look like a sweaty troll.
6.) Women who wear a lot of perfume to the gym. Perfume + sweat = …no thank you.
….Maybe I am a gym nazi after all.
Lauren and I are off to cycling tonight.. wish us luck since neither of us have cycled since the dawn of time and are just hoping this doesn’t happen to us:
Tell Me: What is your gym pet peeve?
