The basic rules of behavior and security
We will not tell you that you could teach the family or in the section where you walked in childhood. Not everyone had this experience.
1. Remove weight
In some reserves for the rich are engaged personal trainers. But if you still dispense with the services of such a guy, please disassemble the leg press, dumbbells clean up, and even to pick up fitness bands if you pitoresca.
Equipment needed to remove the pancakes and putting them on the rack in order. This is particularly important for those halls where all the pancakes are black, and you have to wind a few kilometers in the chaos to collect myself, for example, the bar in the deadlift. On the racks for scales usually have a weighing plate of pancakes, what and where to hang.
Even if you are very tired, and generally on the verge of fainting, still take over. The exception is the case when your working weight wanted someone to warm up. And that, and this also happens. This rule equally applies to boys and girls, it is unlikely that you immediately begin to warm up on squat with 100 kg, so you do not much overworked and then make out with him.
2. Do not drop weights
Sometimes the reset rod on the floor – part of the competitive movement, or a way to save the back, if you are performing a lot of reps of some heavy work. But fitness these things are not used. Even if you wanted to push the rod in the aisle, on the floor without a platform during rush hour from the upper point it will have to be lowered, but not to throw.
Usually “flying” equipment does not live long, if we are not talking about professional weightlifting the vultures. Therefore, carefully lower. It is still useful.
3. Dress normally
Pitoreske half-naked in shorts and tank tops look cool on the posters. But in life they may be asked to dress the part, if beauty was in this way in wearing this Elevator operator or the weightlifting hall, where they are preparing for professional athletes.
The same applies to the biggest bodybuilders that each workout are happy to bare his torso. Most people absolutely are not willing to use the equipment after the naked man in the room. So even if you are in good form – hold its demonstration to the beach or competitions.
Everyone’s favorite item is shale. Coaches in some halls may not allow you to attend classes Amateur beach shoes. It’s not that ugly, just not safe. The legs can slide, and so easy to get injured due to simple reluctance to wear normal shoes.
4. Don’t leave a puddle of sweat
Yes, I want to see that you not simply go from the simulator to the simulator, and are actively engaged. But it is not necessary to leave a puddle of sweat. Outdoor clothing and intensive training? Carry a small towel that you can lay for themselves, or which is to wipe a bench and exercise equipment. Vultures too, it is desirable to wipe, especially if you squat in an open shirt, and your cream for the body, actively moving on the fretboard. Not all halls can be used magnesia. The next person could be injured.
5. Do not meddle in the personal space of others
Of course, the exception is the case when you are asked to insure someone. But there is no need to joyfully embrace the insured on the squat, and even cuddle up to him so that the amplitude of movement was minimal.
Try not to stare at the person who begins to approach, especially if this person gathered a great rod, and is planning heavy approach.
6. Wear smenku
Well, of course, in the summer to get out of the car and I go to the gym, without a change of footwear, and not changing clothes. But it’s still better to change the shoes, because the rules of most clubs allowed to prevent people without smenka.
The rules of etiquette
1. Do not meddle with razgovorami
Each club has a “circle of interest” for a discussion of who is friends with whom, who was beaten in the octagon, and what are the chances of winning regular players. And there are people who are highly annoyed by standing or sitting in the gym the participants “conversational circle”. Even if you saw that man doing something awesome, better with their admiration not to go to him during training. The norm is to pozdorovitsja and exchange a couple of phrases, and not to stand and discuss things constantly.
2. Forbid not to do “turn by turn”
Yes, many clubs are still poorly equipped. Maybe they are a lot of simulators, but, for example, the bench alone. In such a situation, all those involved in the evening shake at a time. Even if your working weight is far for one hundred, let me join you to other people. Yes, they will be able to remove and hang the pancakes, and you still long a rest. Those involved in bodybuilding for some “fun” schemes with a rest timer, drop-sets, or even what methods of increase of the training volume, you can simply explain your needs. Or to find a less peak time for your training.
3. Ask whether the trainer
Not need happily sit on any empty bench and try something there to swing. That guy next to the trainer is clearly engaged in it. Ask how much he still approaches, and ask in turn. The main thing – not to go silently and start to change the working weight. It is for this and not love impudent beginners.
4. Don’t bother
Even if you are a master of sports in powerlifting, and the girl crouches in front of you with a thunderous tilt forward, the vertical legs and in nedeed, keep your comments to yourself. She may be injured, or trust some new-fangled “gluteal” coach. And you obviously do not like to start with conflict. In General, your comments about the art of others to give before you are asked, not entirely ethical.
5. Fans of circuit training is dedicated to
Most likely, for the sake of your great methodical schemes will have to not go in the evening on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and more free time. Covering a lot of equipment people stopping around the hall. Even if you don’t strive to be the most popular person in the room at this moment, you better choose to do this another way.
If you think that someone who barely raises your weight, do not happy to run, and lift this weight for him. It so happens that the approaches planned for maximum resistance level, and people just have to do everything himself, and with his help, you deprive him of the approach. By the way, when you are asked to insure, you better keep your hands away from the fretboard, unless you will understand that it is time to help.
7. One pulls the other presses
If you are engaged in “Agrifirm” and just hang excessive weights for themselves and try to raise a better tie. Meaning that your insurers will pump long muscles of the back, no. Click? Use the normal jimboy program. Engaged in bodybuilding and fitness? Choose adequate weight.
8. Do not meddle in the thick of things
It can be quite difficult at rush hour, but don’t put your bench where people gathered in large numbers. You will hurt them and interfere with your practice. Be careful.
9. Reset weight
If you asked someone in the queue and hung on top of your pancakes, remove them yourself. The person who you are allowed to weight is not required for you to complete additional scope of work. The same applies to simulators.
10. Be tactful
Yes, people are different. Someone with 20 kg sit down normally, and someone begins to stretch the rod in a 70 kg, and work – from 300. So your valuable comments and opinion best to keep to yourself. Especially not to joke about other people’s appearances. It’s just not polite, and alluding to the low social status and cultural level of the Joker.
11. Do not refuse insurance
If you are really able to help, never deny, it is very ugly. But those who are not confident in their abilities, we should say about it. Nothing shameful or wrong with that.
12. Screams and roars
Snarling during the approach of the people – the norm in the halls wearing this Elevator operator. Not the norm in a regular gym, where he worked on health and beauty, and not on becoming really strong. So try not to make especially loud noises during a workout.
13. Conversations and music
It is not recommended to behave like on a bench at the entrance, for example, loud and with sound to show your friends videos, and loudly discuss what is happening.
This applies not only to girls. Separate guys so brightly like that to be near them in training more than an hour is not impossible even for the most seasoned. Hall simply take a shower, use some not too smelly deodorant and all. Pour yourself a liter of spirits should not be.
To be a newbie no shame there. Don’t like newcomers, and those whose behavior distracts from training and introduces chaos into a coherent inner world gym.
Rules of conduct and safety
In any room it is better to train so as not to create hazardous situations. Even if you do crossfit, it is not necessary that after each approach you have a fly rod with pancakes, and all the space around was littered with weights.
The safety rules are
- To workout go out in clothes that cannot get stuck in the simulator, and shoes designed for this type of exercise. Of course don’t have to buy weightlifting shoes if you the first time I put it on the back of the neck 20 kg. will be Sufficient any sneaker with a hard sole. For traction perfect shoes, and regular exercises in the gym – any sports shoes that locks the leg;
- If you do not know where to get some of the equipment, ask the duty trainer. No need to look for locks half workout;
- Yes, the locks will have to wear, especially if the rod is assembled with a few pancakes, and you are not sure of its stability under load;
- Do not drag your viruses into the hall. Cold? Sit at home and heal. It is unlikely that you have because of SARS breaks down preparing for the Olympia, but to infect other people is a bad habit, which, moreover, makes room is not the healthiest environment in the world;
- Ask for insurance on the bench press and squat, if the weights are working. Try not to rely on the stress factor, which according to legend helps to squeeze any weight;
- Do not sit with your smartphone on the benches and simulators. It is unnerving everyone from visitors to coaches;
- Do not eat in the hall. An exception may be except that the powerlifters who train for 3-4 hours in a row, and may drink between sets serving gainer or eat a candy bar;
- If you eat in the locker room, do not disturb other people. Actually, now few remaining establishments in which no fitness cafe or something like that. You can always eat your food too. In fitness clubs it not cause problems, because these institutions are created to enable you to get better and eat healthier meals.
Coach or instructor
The modern rooms are divided into two broad categories. First, the instructors can only tell where what equipment, and to conduct the first training-coaching. It usually consists of a “run” on all machines for all muscle groups, and demonstrate that it works. Some free plans for beginners can be out there in the public domain, but usually in these halls write them for a small fee trainers.
If you want serious work, you will have to hire a personal trainer. The so-called man who will be with you every workout, and will monitor your technique and how you are doing. A personal trainer will write a program that will help you adjust your diet, and will help you reach any goal.
Usually attempt to obtain personal training at the Desk, be crowned anything. It’s not a bad coach, and the club’s policy is. You have to pay if you want an individual approach. If you bought just a ticket, but not coach services, you get access to equipment and insurance necessary.
The second category of rooms is found is quite rare. This Studio or, suddenly, the halls of the old school, where the trainers are people who prepare athletes. They can tell and tell absolutely for free. If you decide to put the vehicles, and do according to plan – will pay. No coach will do everything that you just do not injured, gave the body to tone and even pumped biceps for the summer. The studios are season tickets that include coach services. Then anyone can either do it himself or to see a specialist to help.
The most important rules of conduct in the hall
Many clubs close down membership to people who are engaged in illegal personal coaching. You can just come work out with a friend, and the next day to learn that both will return the money, but to go here you will not. Does it make sense to do in this club? Everyone decides for himself, in fact, engage at a high level, it is indeed easier with a training partner. And the risk of injury less.
In other clubs, you cannot perform certain exercises. Yes, we are talking about homebrew execution of weightlifting movements in the passage of the usual “rocking”. Specify whether it is possible to do so, if you are going to do crossfit.
Be sure to find out all to buy a ticket. Can I use chalk, or liquid version, it allowed the use of their belts and personal equipment, in General, is there a random time limit use of cardio equipment.
Yes, some clubs in the rush hour, you can work on a treadmill or stationary bike no more than 20 minutes at a time. This can be a problem if you want to lose weight, you need to do a lot of cardio.
Club rules, by the way, can be quite strange. There are still places in which personnel can not communicate with customers outside the club, and even add them to social networks, in addition to the workers accounts. It is better to find out beforehand to avoid a mess.
But for most fitness clubs is enough simple rules of courtesy, etiquette and behavior in society. Greet other people, say goodbye to the coach when going to leave, and don’t forget to clean up after themselves, that’s all.
