If you are like me you like to get to the gym maybe answer a text or change songs but keep moving around doing your routine. What I see happening a lot are these people who just sit down on a flat bench or on another piece of equipment for what seems like forever. This kind of behavior disrupts everyone’s flow and will give you a bad rap.
Yes everyone checks their phones, but sitting down and having a full conversation for a half an hour is just wrong. Nobody should want to be the one that is just sitting staring at a screen the whole point is to keep moving and get your heart rate up. If you have something important to do on your phone you should go sit in the locker room or somewhere out-of-the-way.
There is a guy like this at the gym that I attend and he causes all kinds of problems by just sitting in the way texting the whole time. Me and my gym buddies are constantly having to work around him to try to getting everything done. It’s just down right rude and wont help you in your quest for health. So keep it light with the texts and heavy on the reps and keep moving forward.
