Here are a few New Rules I've personally come up with from my experiences and observations at the gym. Please note that if any of these rules speak to you personally, now is the time to adhere to these rules. It will make the world a better place. Smile


1. If you’re a man, DO NOT wear tank tops with a plunging neck line down to your belly button that barely covers your nipples, tucked into the elastic band of your muscle pants… and capped off with a nifty fanny pack. Hey buddy, 1986 called…they want their outfit back. Just saying…

2. DO NOT bring a 5 gallon Sparklets bottle to the gym. I mean, I don’t get it. Water is essential but there is no need to walk around with such a huge bottle of water so you can do a curl motion when you drink it to flex your biceps. If your best workout is when you drink… you have to rethink your routine. Just saying…..

3. Do Not… I mean DO NOT bring a mask and snorkel to the gym to be used in a lap pool. I have a feeling that if you’re one that does, you probably have to register for more things than just your car. Just saying…..

4. DO NOT use the public steam room as an opportunity for shaving. Hearing a scraping noise and tapping sound against the wall is freaky. But when the foggy steam disappears only to see that those sounds are you shaving and tapping out your lil hairs from your razor onto the wall is just disgusting. Just saying….

5. If you’re one to bark after every rep of every set while lifting weights please remember to never leave home without your bark collar. “Sit Ooboo sit…good dog *ruff*”. Just saying…

6. If when you are doing bicep curls and your lower back is getting most of the workout from your constant swaying back and forth….. Put the “ego” weights down buddy and try using something not so heavy. Seriously…no one is paying attention to how much you’re lifting. Just saying….

7. Although the gym has an abundance of awesome flat screen TV’s everywhere you go….Its a gym…not the movies. So the seats on the machines are NOT to be used as a place to sit and watch. Put the popcorn down, get your set in and move on. Some of us here are actually trying to sweat. Just saying…

Any new rules you think should be added from your personal experiences or observations?

Hilarious!!!

Here's 2 more:

Do not talk to me. Period. If you need a spot, I'm happy to help. But I do not want to hear about your dog, or anything else when I'm focused and training. Yes, I see you trying to catch my eye.
Yes, I have headphones in to stay focused, and Yes, I'm ignoring you. lol
We'll talk later, I promise.
Just Saying...


And please...If you're strong enough to lift those weights, for god's sake...PUT THEM BACK!
Just Saying...

Exercise is like meditation. The more you do it, the easier it becomes.

Trust your Self. Reach for the moon. Not the fingers pointing to it.

Don't be the guy to come in to a small anytime fitness or something of that sort and take up 4 machines for quick minute circuit training then do that circuit for the next half hour while no one else can do anything..... just saying....

I have a few:

*The locker room bench is NOT the place to sit in your underwear and argue with your boyfriend. Some people are trying to change and would prefer their privacy, and not worry about the CELL PHONE that probably has picture taking capabilities that is pointed in thier direction...

*if you sweat on a machine, like leave a puddle, WIPE IT OFF!

oh and one more

*Be courtieous of those around you. If you see someone headed for the same machine as you, it is definitley bad manners to run for the machine and sit down the second the other person puts down their water bottle next to it...

These are just a few, i'm sure i could think of a few more...

Don't spend all your time looking in the mirrors while lifting and then look around to see if anyone else is watching you too...ya already look stupid.

If you are at a gym it is to work out and get sweaty! Don't come to the gym in the skanky little outfit, all decked out in make-up and spend the next hour talking/flirting with people actually trying to work out!

LOL!!! Those are awesome!

I guess this is #17?
Please do not use the steam room to masturbate... I can still hear your noises and moans over the sound of the blasting steam. I haven't been able to eat Kraft Dinner since - but maybe that's a good thing! (Maybe I should be thanking you instead.)

1Cool Don't come up to me telling me how to eat and exercise when you look no differently than I do. I don't think substituting food with supplements and pills is the best way to go. You think you're some fitness guru, but you're all hype - get over yourself!

The treadmills are for running, walking, or jogging. Do not leap, skip, do jetes, or any other "I love the DANCE" moves. It is dangerous and also I will give you a leotard wedgie.

Please don't leave your nasty sweat paper towel on the machine. Though I am a mommy, I'm not your mommy, and I'm not throwing that nasty thing out for you.

When using the sauna, please don't lay on the bench, taking up the entire area, playing with your fat rolls. Its rude, and really not attractive. Really.

OK, am I missing something?? What in the world does masturbation have to do with Kraft dinners??????
