A gym is like any other common area in that the members rely on each other to follow the rules and behave courteously in order to make the gym a pleasant place for everyone. Whether you’re planning on joining a gym or you’ve been a member for years, it’s important to understand gym etiquette so that your presence doesn’t disrupt the gym and make it uncomfortable for other paying members to work out around you.

It’s difficult to stay motivated at the gym especially when your goals are weeks and months away. If you have a problem with motivation or you just want a change of pace in your exercise routine, you might want to consider participating in group classes at your gym.
