Gym Rules that Suck

In the past, people have sent me signs from their gyms that I have categorized as “Gym Signs that Suck.” My new (#badass Las Vegas) gym doesn’t have a sign but it does have a list of rules. There is one rule in particular that sucks. See #4.


DrearyIf you care, I am LOVING it here in Las Vegas. Today marks two weeks and it feels like I have lived here for 6 months.

My first thoughts to share:

  • So. Much. Sun. My body hasn’t seen this much vitamin D in my entire life.
  • On my first day here, I got a little sunburn drinking coffee on my porch at 7:00 IN THE MORNING!
  • One day, I thought there were clouds in the sky but it was actually smoke from a house fire a mile away.
  • Goodbye seasonal affective disorder! Hello life of applying sunscreen every single day!

No to skinny jeans in the gym

Because sometimes text isn’t enough and you need pictures with Xs and check marks:

When you go to a gym make sure you also wear the right kit, there is nothing worst than seeing people in the gym wearing inappropriate gym gear. Ian Allen gives his advice:

“Clothing conducive to exercise, permits a full range of movement at all working joints (i.e. no jeans). Should cover torso and pelvis (i.e. not topless). Demonstrates personal health and safety (i.e. no flip flops) and hygiene (i.e. clean, no bare feet) requirements.”

Below is an example of how not to dress and how to dress for the gym:

The post also has a hysterical video about gym etiquette. It cracked me up. I love these guys.

Sent to me by the hysterical (albeit foul-mouthed) Brian from Brian Watkins is Fat. If you have a minute, read his first blog post to get a feel for his “style.” If you don’t love him, I don’t know if we can be friends anymore.
