Gym Etiquette: Odor Control
Offensive odors at both ends of the scent spectrum can diminish the experience of fellow members and guests. Nothing is worse than exercising close to someone who smells bad because of natural body odor or the fact that the workout clothes they are wearing haven’t been washed in weeks. On the other hand, excessive use of scented perfume, deodorant, or other products can be overwhelming to others gasping for air during cardiovascular activities. Be considerate, be clean, and be conservative with the use of artificial scents.
