Jennifer DiDonato: Hi everyone, welcome to MadeFitTv. I am Jennifer DiDonato, your host and this is episode number 33. MadeFitTv is everyone's source for health and fitness information and entertainment, so thanks so much for following us and for watching. Today' show is ten -- the top 10 things to not do at the gym. The reason why I thought this was pretty appropriate is because it's just running on January, now congratulations to all of you who joined the gym finally and who has actually stuck it out for this month, that's important. I know it's tough to do starting out, so you should pat yourself in the back because it's a hard thing to do. Now so congratulations for those of you who are just getting your gym memberships or if you are not in the gym, just starting out working out, it's a great thing to do, so keep it going, I know you can do it. But if you are new to a gym or let's say that you have been at the gym for a long time and kind of forgot how things work, you know, you've been there for eight years and kind of getting comfortable, it's time to kind of check yourself a little bit, let's see if may be some of these things you may be doing that are offending other people, so I am just here to help, you know I am here on your side. So starting out, top 10 things to not do at the gym. Number 10 is, don't make your friends do the same workout that you are doing. Now, if you don't working out with them for a long time, perfect, beautiful, you both get in cut, get in chicks, keep it up, but you know what, a lot of people who are just joining the gym you know, let's say, you've been a part of the gym for really long time and then you are just bringing your friend who wants to loose a significant amount of weight but they never picked up a weight before, don't be like, oh, yeah, we're going to do chest presses, we're going to super sit up, we are going to do some bosu, you know pikey things, you know, these people can be overwarmed and they may not be as conditioned as you. So try to take it easy and may be offer them or direct them in a position of someone who is knowledgeable but is also can keep up with their either slower pace or their beginner pace because you don't want to interrupt them and you don't want to scare them either. Number 9; stop leering at all the chicks or the guy's, okay, you know, you are sitting there doing your biceps curls and just staring over at the chick over there, okay. Don't think that she doesn't see you, she sees you and it's a little creepy. If you want, just go and talk or something, I don't know, but just don't leer at people or if you like on the elliptical and just kind of staring off, you know, be conscious of that because if they see you more and more doing that, I mean, it makes people kind of uncomfortable and first you don't want to be known as like that creepy guy because who here is part of the gym and like just stopping thing for a second, who is that creepy guy in the gym, bingo, I bet, you'll sink your head right now like, oh my God there is only a guy at the gym that totally leers at people and has got his, don't be that person or that chick either I mean please stop, please stop, I am saving you here. Number 8; don't wander the floor and just not workout and just check yourself out in the mirror. You know you got those people - tricep guys, come on no, no, no, we know what you're doing and the same thing for girls, you know, you got to check the hair. This isn't a beauty context, we are here to workout. It's fine if you want to check some of the counters or if your bicep is improving since last week, but I mean, don't just keep walking the floor and walking the floor and looking at yourself in a bunch of angles because we know what you're doing, you know I am not stupid. So just bear in mind. Number 7; don't block people if they are in a spot in front of the mirror, okay. I know a lot of gyms, I don't why gyms do this, the gym that I am a member of, they recently had the
