Ten things you should avoid in a powerlifting gym (part 3)
8. Be Loud and Obnoxious
It might be understandable that a powerlifting gym sometimes has some grunting, yelling, which is even necessary in some case. So, it’s no need to complain about the noise. However, be reasonable since there are many other people who are training at the same room and there are also those that might take craziness to the next level.
Whether it is the body funk that makes you smell like you reside in an onion patch, or bad breath that would make anyone nauseous, the people around you are going to notice. So make sure not to be oblivious to the fact that your hygiene is something inconvenient to everybody around you.
Remember to brush, floss, gargle, and shower every day. Apply deodorant and even one or two sprits of cologne (don’t do it too much as this isn’t pleasant either).
Avoid wearing the same clothes more than once without washing and keep your gear clean and smelling fresh.
10. Be Rude
This is one of the most important rules in gym. It is annoying to see someone’s stuff on a machine while they are not in your sight. So just leave it exactly where it is and wait until that person comes back and ask them how many more sets they have.
You might not be too happy if someone else moved your stuff and used the equipment you planned to use.
Being rude by any way is unacceptable and there is a huge difference between standing up for yourself and just being rude. The gym should be a place to encourage and offer help to other people who are on the same path with you.
So, understand that you should be an example no matter the circumstance, no matter how bad someone’s actions may tick you off. Your attitude should reflect the discipline and self-control of your own.
