Fitness Class Etiquette

Well guys grab something sturdy cause you're in for a shock. Since January I've been going to the gym. I know. That's like what, 4 months? Hold on, I'll show you a picture of my 6 pack. Hmm...keep holding for that one.

Anyhow, I've been taking a lot of fitness classes. Most are good and go smoothly. But some end up a little uncomfortable. I feel like there needs to be a lesson on gym class etiquette.

1. I'm in the back row. I always get there EARLY to get a spot in the back row. Do not come in 10 min late and create your own new back row behind me. Ooooh this really chaps my hide. You don't want to make a scene, I get it. You don't want to be seen. Believe me I really get that. That is why I plan ahead to secure a spot in the back. I suggest you do the same.

2. Please do not knock over my water! Or if you do, at least be kind enough to pick it up. Come on people. It's a basic lesson. Clean up, clean up, everybody everywhere...

3. If we are in a class that some clean up is required ( ie muscle) don't start cleaning up during the cool down! Maybe you are already all stretchy and don't need any more of that. But some of us do. So when you are running around us putting all your weights and other equipment away it's very distracting. And kinda rude to the instructor in my opinion.

I guess that kinda sounds like a rant. 99% of the classes I take are super fun ( or funnish, I hate you muscle) and go smoothly. But every once in a while I get a class and I wonder what people are thinking. Be courteous to your fellow gym goers!
