Work It Baby!

Welcome to February! Hopefully you are still working out at your local gym. Did you know that 17% of all those who sign up for a gym membership never go to the gym after they sign up - NOT good!

Discipline is doing what you don't want to do! Remember: Do it anyway!
Several posts back I asked you ~ What tips would you like to give the person working out next to you?

Here's your feedback of what NOT to do at the gym:

  • Going to the gym when you are sick. Ewww! There is no need to spread germs, especially in a place where people are trying to get healthy!
  • Not cleaning up after yourself. Towel off equipment before you leave, wipe up puddles you leave by the shower, toss disposable razors, and clean up any mess you make on the counters. 
  • Changing the channel. How rude to assume you are the only one watching the TV. Someone could be involved in a show. Always check with others first if you want to change the television channel. 
  • Hovering while someone is exercising. Don’t stand and stare at someone while you are waiting to use equipment he or she is using—just be patient. 
  • Using gym towels as Kleenex. Another big Ewwww! This should not have to be mentioned, but unfortunately, it must: tissues are for noses, towels are for bodies. Do not confuse the two.
Keep up the consistent work-outs ~ you will be glad you did it!

Brilliant tips! Perhaps you can come and lecture some of the "gym-bunnies" here in Spain!! Gym etiquette is not their finest point ;-)

I would also like to take this opportunity to invite you to my blog to enter our competition to win TWO gorgeous prizes from our jewellery boutique, Luxuria. We would love you to join us :-)
