I heard that in some gyms, you're not allowed to chalk up or make grunting noises.
Well, I just found out that the new gym I'm attending in San Diego (I'm originally from LA), will enforce a new policy starting March 1, where we'll have to bring a towel along with our membership card. Personally, I'm not a sweaty monster like some people, so it will definitely be annoying to carry around a towel I probably won't use. I take a shower when I get home anyway.
Kinda ironic that our gym is enforcing this, because in San Diego, people are very conservative for the most part. Nobody here really perspires much. Back at the Bally in LA, sometimes the entire bench would be SOAKED after someone was finished. It was just nasty. They should enforce the towel policy in that gym.
It just seems like our gym doesn't want to pay employees to clean up the equipment, so they're forcing us to bring a towel. I'm not making a big deal or anything. I'll probably just keep a rag in my trunk and just use it as my ticket to the gym, no biggie. But it's still wack.
So do any of your gyms have any rules like this, that's out of the norm?
