Hygiene and equipment for fitness
In the gym it is important not to forget that meet on clothes. The fitness equipment must be not only comfortable, functional and appropriate. Men shouldn’t go for a workout in the stretched tights or boxer shorts, stop wearing t-shirts. The fair sex is better to abandon the tops with a deep neckline and ultra-short shorts, sheer pants and t-shirts. In such clothes it is uncomfortable to perform the exercises, plus the attention of visitors will be provided. And be sure to change into clean shoes and not to wear street shoes in the fitness club.
The right clothing should absorb sweat, so it is advisable to buy clothes from modern materials. But quality leggings, t-shirts, sports pants will not help to remove the smell of old sweat.

Often in the gym, there is a need to hold several shells. For example, when you have a circular fitness training. But if the trainer does not need, at least in the next 10-15 minutes, no need to hang your towel or to put next to a bottle of water. You need to give to do some other visitors.
A gross violation of the unspoken rules is the analysis prepared for the rod without asking. If the neck is fixed pancakes — you must first clarify whether the projectile. And only then begin to “tweak” it for themselves.
After operation of a simulator or rod you must return the equipment to its original state. Fitness classes come and newcomers who may be not under force to remove heavy loads from the vulture, to open the locks. All used pancakes and dumbbells need to be put in their places by weight and sight. Not as it will be easier and faster.
In the analysis of the rod can not throw the pancakes on the floor or noise to lower the neck on the rack. These sound sources can irritate focused on the exercise athletes. In addition, such a handling equipment makes fitness training unsafe. You can drop the pancake on foot passing by the person, or yourself.
To use the shells you need in accordance with their functionality. For example, it is not necessary to occupy a work area with free weights to accomplish stretching to make the exercises. All the benches after themselves should also be wiped clean.
There is another important aspect in the handling of projectiles. You can not push the free weights legs. So they can stain or again once again to cause the noise. Athletes also there is a superstition associated with equipment gyms. You should not step over the barbell — your own or someone else’s. It is believed that this can lead to injury.
