NOTE: These rules are JOKES! If you ever see any of these rules posted at any gym you ever go to, please take a picture for me!

1. Donít blow your nose inrepparttar 118291 water fountain.

This is a crude habit and can contribute torepparttar 118292 spread of colds and viruses. Besides, thatís whatrepparttar 118293 gym towels are for...

2. No smoking onrepparttar 118294 cardio machines.

Those little circular spots are water-bottle holders, not ashtrays. If you need a cigarette that badly when youíre working out, tape one torepparttar 118295 pulldown bar and take a drag on it as a reward for each rep you do.

3. When spotting someone on bench press, be sure to wipe your face first.

You are not a stalactite, and dripping sweat into someoneís eye is not a good way to make friends.

4. If you choose to wear cologne or perfume torepparttar 118296 gym, please donít marinate in it.

Ifrepparttar 118297 person onrepparttar 118298 stair machine next to you lights up a cigarette, you could both be seriously injured.

5. Those stands that have allrepparttar 118299 weight plates on them should not be used for holding your donuts.

Your donuts will end up with a terrible metallic taste that evenrepparttar 118300 coffee in your water bottle wonít be able to get out of your mouth.

6. The Crunch Machine is not a vending machine for candy bars.

1. Dumbells - The original dark basement booby trap.

* Dumbells make great childrenís toys. They are, of course, heavier and more dangerous than a barbie doll or Play-Doh (tm) and are not really as exciting as a video game but they certainly are cheap and hard to break.

Nevermind that they wonít be able steer because theyíre holding ontorepparttar 118292 thing...

* Tenderizing meat - layrepparttar 118293 meat down belowrepparttar 118294 head rest and rock violently back and forth on top of it.

3. Thighmaster (tm) - popularized by Suzanne Somers, no closet is complete without this device. You simply set it between your legs and squeeze!
