7 Annoying Gym Habits and How to Avoid Them ...


Making it to the gym after a long day can be hard enough, especially if there is someone constantly there with annoying gym habits. While gym etiquette isn't taught in school, we should all still be respectful of one another when working out in a public facility. After eight hours in the office, my body craves nothing more than a peaceful workout to strengthen my muscles, calm my mind and stretch my legs at the end of the day. And even if my local gym is packed, nothing stops me from fitting in a successful workout more than a fellow member with annoying gym habits. Here are 7 annoying gym habits and how you can avoid them.

1. Too Much Chatter

While the gym is certainly a social place, your workout time is just that: yours. There is nothing like an old friend, coworker or stranger striking up a 30 minute conversation right in the middle of your workout. One of the most annoying gym habits that comes to mind is when someone tries to carry on a conversation with you while you're trying to workout. As a social girl myself, I love a good conversation at almost anytime of the day, however, not when my earbuds are in, and I'm trying to keep my heart rate up. Not only that, but for me, the time I spend in the gym is the time that I use to unwind, clear my mind and let go of the stresses of the day. Nothing can kill a good workout like an unexpected conversation about a work related issue, friend drama, family problem and so on. So how can you avoid this annoying gym habit? Simply tell the person, in a very kind tone, of course, that you only have a limited amount of time to squeeze in a workout but that you

would love to continue the conversation later. "Call me!"
