I've seen a lot of comments by friends on Facebook and read a few articles in the paper about how annoying it is to regular gym-goers when, in the New Year, gym Newbies show up to start a workout routine.
The first few weeks of January are marked by Newbies: hogging favored treadmills, forgetting to wipe sweat off of equipment, and talking loudly on cell phones. I'm sure the list goes on, but since I haven't been inside a gym in, ummm, a while, I'll let it stand at that, or ask you for your 2 cents.
Let me just say, out of heart-felt consideration for long-time fitness devotees, I have decided to sacrifice my own well-being and forgo breaking my years-long exercise fast.
Am I considerate, or what?
