Not respecting personal space
WE’RE NOT ON THE TUBE (subway, if you’re American). Respect people’s personal space.
This is one of the most common mistakes I see not only noobs make, but anyone really.
Before you pick a spot to workout on the gym floor, or pick up a weight from a rack, or put a weight back, or generally just move around the gym, make sure you’re not interrupting someone’s workout.
I see this sh*t happen EVERY time I go to the gym. Giving people space to work out properly is just GOOD MANNERS.
It makes my blood boil when someone decides to flap their arms inches away from my face, when there’s literally acres of free, available space elsewhere.
It’s not enough to just pick a spot that’s free though. When you move around the gym, ESPECIALLY when it’s busy, don’t f*cking walk over people.
I’ve lost count of how many times people try to squeeze past me whilst I’m doing something like flat-bench dumbbell press, knocking into my dumbbells mid-set!
If you need to get past someone or put some weights back but someone working out is in the way, WAIT until they’re done with their set.
It’s INCREDIBLY off-putting and rage-inducing having someone suddenly come towards you whilst you’re lifting. Just wait 20 seconds for that person to complete their set, then do what you have to do.
It’s just good manners. People come to the gym after their sh*tty day at work to find solace and happiness and you being impatient and inconsiderate, deadlifting so close to someone’s head they can literally feel a breeze brushing past them is not what they’re paying their gym membership for.
Don’t be a d*ck. Give people their space.
That’s all from me.
