Everyone has different guidelines when it comes to how they approach their personal fitness, but there are some things people do in the gym that pretty much annoy everyone. 

Who knows? You could be guilty of these gym faux pas and not even know it.

Most people’s number one excuse for not going to the gym is that they don’t have time. Watching you send a five-paragraph email while sitting on a machine might be the most irritating thing ever.
