After a long day at work its difficult enough to drag yourself into the gym. But once you're there the last thing you want to deal with are things that get in the way of your workout. To this end I've come up with my list of rules everyone should abide by at the gym.

    Clean the Machines After Use

    Is it too much to ask to clean the machines after use? There is nothing worse than seeing someone else's sweat all over the handles, and screen of my favorite treadmill. Don't be gross, 'nuff said!

    Don't Leave Weights Out for Others to Pick Up

    Unless mom is coming along to pick up after you, please put the weights back where they belong. Look at it this way; you're burning more calories when you do it.

    Share the Equipment

    Hey Mr. Bench Press, how about you give someone else a try? If you camp out on a machine for too long I'm liable to get cranky. The gym can be a busy place, so sharing equipment and being courteous to others can make the workout better for everyone else.

    Listen to Your Playlist; Don't Sing It

    I love to listen to music while working out but I know enough not to sing along. Anyone who has been alongside the next American Idol knows what I'm talking about.

    Join a Gym That Supports Breast Cancer Research

    If you already go to the gym, great work and keep it up! If you don't, think about joining one that supports the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, like Planet Fitness!
