Fitness 101: What to do and not do at the gym

Fitness 101: What to do and not do at the gym
BY JENN A. NOCERA
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

As the New Year began, many people resolved to lose weight and get in shape. Among fitness enthusiasts, there is an understanding that the gyms will be packed with “Resolutioners” for about the first six weeks of the year. Regular gym-goers cannot wait until mid-February when the gym environment begins to return to normal with fewer visitors. They know that the “Resolutioners” will have either been injured, burnt themselves out by overtraining, or giving up by that time. Then comes Spring, with it’s influx of people who have forgotten their resolutions but are alarmed at the approaching bathing suit season. Again, regular gym-goers will be tested.

These are not necessarily ill-spirited sentiments. The feelings come from the many disruptions that new visitors to the gym create. Since most of the newcomers are unfamiliar with proper gym etiquette, it creates extra tension in the overly-crowded environment. Hopefully, this article will shed some light on what not to do at the gym.
