Gym Etiquette for Beginners

Let’s face it—the gym can be an intimidating place for the neophyte lifter. But it needn’t be. The gym is the great equalizer: whether you are a corporate CEO or entry level service worker, all of us are made equal in the gym. We can’t buy our physiques; we have to earn them.
