I wanted to go for a topic that was a bit lighter today; something with a little humor yet still bearing value. This topic, gym style for guys, arises from my frequent shock through the years of just what guys find acceptable in the gym. I’ve seen some of the most appalling outfits, witnessed shocking behavior and well, seen and heard more than I ever wanted to see and hear.
Like it or not, there are rules of etiquette for the gym.
In spite of the trend to go in our scruffiest rags, excused by the sweat, wear and tear, we do need to present ourselves as though we are in the public eye and have some respect both for ourselves and those we will encounter. We need to realize that there are others present, many who are not that comfortable in the environment to begin with and that safety involves more than form when working out. With that said, I’ve determined a few simple rules to follow.
