Greatist: Navigating the Gym Floor

Creatop works for everyone, from bodybuilders, to yogis, to the average person who runs or goes to the gym a few times per week.

While easy to navigate for some, the gym can be an intimidating place for someone just starting out on their fitness journey – or someone looking to build weight training on to their exercise regimen.

We love these tips from Greatist for navigating the gym floor:

  1. “Work in” as you work out. Let someone use a piece of equipment while you rest between sets.
  2. Safety first. Push the weight pin in all the way, add weight collars to barbells, and adjust the bench seat to the appropriate height.
  3. Keep it neat. If you un-rack weights, re-rack them for the next person.
  4. Put the phone down. Give yourself time to do something for you.
  5. Find some space if you’re doing an exercise that requires extra dynamic moves. Be prepared to modify your workout if the gym is extra packed that day.
  6. Don’t be gross. Wipe down the equipment – gyms are some of the germiest places around.
