I finally made it to the gym yesterday, and after having a small talk with my trainer (who was very very disappointed at my disappearance act), I got to the actual workout. Only then did I realise that I did not have my mp3 player on me. Oh-oh.
My gym protocol is as follows: get in there, pop in ur ear set, cardio, then a one-on-one with the trainer, stretch, hit the showers. Get out. The sooner, the better.
However, since I did not have my player on me, I was forced to look around.. There was always the overtly social lady, who felt its appropriate to discuss current events while huffing and puffing on the treadmill, the girls who confused the gym with the mall and would be all dolled up, makeup, hair, complimentary eye roll included. And then there comes a lady, every once in a while, who feels its her place to let u know that: the gym is a place for really fat people, and what are you doing here? *shoots an "are u one of em "anorexics" look in just for good meassure*.. Ugh! (Trust me peeps, I am nothing close to an anorexic! lol if only! :p)
And I usually avoid having to deal with this crowd by smiling at my tunes, and.. working out!
So yesterday, this got me thinking: gym etiquette.. Do's and Don'ts.. There should be a list somewhere!
- to healthy workouts! xx
