Gym Etiquette Tips

Posted: Updated:

A few weeks into the new year and many of you are most likely continuing New Year's resolutions.

Many resolutions are to join a gym and get in shape.

What many people may not know is that there are many helpful hints to give you and those around you a better gym experience.

Fitness director, David Widdison at Gold's Gym in Bismarck says gym etiquette is very simple and easy to follow.

It starts with wearing the correct clothing.

He says you should not wear jeans or khakis and always remember to bring a clean indoor pair of shoes, especially in winter months.

While working out, Widdison says to let people share equipment with you, and to clean up after you are done.

If gym etiquette is not followed, the fitness center can end up with a muddy mess and a group of frustrated regulars.

Either way, this is a good time of year for a gym etiquette reminder to everyone who uses the gym.

"Some of it is inexperience and some of it is just lack of common courtesy. Ya know, if it is the before hand then obviously you are forgiven. Hopefully you'll learn quickly and if it is the later then - ya know I just always say treat people like you'd like to be treated yourself. So try and give gym etiquette so the other members can enjoy their experience while you do." says David Widdison/Fitness Director.

He also recommends always putting weights back and wiping them down with a towel when you're done.
