A gym or health club is a shard environment, one that comes with its own set of rules. Follow these simple guidelines to avoid being the member no one wants to spot.

Step 1: Take turns
Be courteous and take turns at the machines. You pay dues, but so do other members. If someone is lingering near the machine, let them use it in between your sets.

If you see someone blatantly breaking gym rules, let the staff know.

Step 2: Put back equipment
When you are done with equipment, or during long breaks, put the equipment back where you found it.

Step 3: Unload your weights
When you are done using a bar with weight plates, take the plates off, and place them back on the rack.

Step 4: Don't stand in the way
Respect other members -- don't stand in the pathways or in front of mirrors in between your sets. Move out of the way to allow other members access to the equipment.

Buy yourself a lock so that you can store your bag and clothes in a locker during your workout. This will help keep the workout area clean.

Step 5: Wipe down machines
Bring your own towel or locate cleaning equipment on the gym floor. You should never walk away from a machine without first wiping off any sweat you left.

Make sure to use a cleaning spray if it's available.

Step 6: Clean up after yourself
Clean up after yourself in the locker room. This isn't your bathroom. Don't leave hair on the counters, sinks, or shower drains. Place trash in the garbage cans and put towels in the appropriate laundry basket, not on the floor.
