It is not enough that you resolved to lose weight. Finally deciding to lose weight and getting serious are just the beginning. Here in Singapore, losing weight is encouraged that almost all parks have equipment you can use for free. If you do not want to exercise in public, you can always choose to sign up for an exclusive gym membership.
Going to the gym is a fitness routine you have to develop. No matter how exclusive it is, the fact still remains that there are other members around and you are expected to be in your best behaviour. There are certain fitness rules that you should follow. Here are some rules that you should observe for harmonious sessions:
Do not speak loudly; you are not inside the phone booth
Your friend is calling you and you feel like boasting you are in the gym. There is nothing wrong with that but if you talk too loud, other members might get annoyed. Remember that you are not inside the phone booth. If you cannot contain your voice, at least go in a corner and far away from people as possible.
Do wipe your sweat
As a courtesy to the next user, you have to wipe your sweat. This is the reason why it is important you always carry around your towel. Remember that it is not your equipment that you can just leave without wiping. Other people will use it and it will be surely appreciated if you wipe or clean it.
Do return the equipment where it belongs
No matter how exclusive the gym is, chances are you will have to share equipment at some point in time with other members. If you use equipment first, gym members will respect your time. If you are done, the best signal is to return the equipment (like weights) where it belongs. Do not hoard all equipment.
Do not yell
When the workout is intense, sometimes it is best to let it all out. That is okay once in a while but if you continue to yell, that will be annoying enough. The same goes for moaning incessantly every repetition. As much as possible do not yell or moan too much.
Do not keep everything
Your parents taught you to share things. It is always nice to share things. If there are other members you want to use equipment or join you, share it. Do not worry because it will not delay your goal.
You have to embrace these manners or rules for your next gym session.
