Test Your Exercise Etiquette

I know that a lot of folks work out to let off a little steam, but sometimes I see manners, not to mention common sense, fall by the wayside on the road, trail, pool, and gym. Take this quiz to see if you know your exercise etiquette.

Test Your Exercise Etiquette

You are running in the street against traffic in the bike lane. A cyclist, with a car right behind her, is headed toward you — what do you do?

5/5 Most of it is just common sense and respect, though there are times where I do want to wave the bird at several inconsiderate people taking up lanes and not caring etc.

Ha, gotta say that flipping off the ladies with strollers just made me laugh out loud. Thanks for that!

haha, i didn't know this was a real quiz! all the answers seem so obvious, but i did get 4/5 because i answered, "Since the machine is in use, clearly you were meant to skip that exercise."

5/5. I like being polite too. It usually pays off for everyone involved.

5/5...good quiz! I would personally talk in the sauna if it was only me and my friend. I would probably stop talking if someone else came in though.

Great quiz; I laughed and I learned something: Don't flip off stroller moms! (Just kidding, it was the part about the sauna.)

It's funny how cyclists are so territorial with "their" paths, yet they constantly bully their way over to use "our" sidewalks!

Sometimes I really do feel like flipping off strollers that take up the entire street though....

This quiz was cute - made me laugh out loud about flipping the bird. ha. Some dude bike has totally done that to me while I was running. As he flipped the bird he also yelled back "This is the BIKE path!" Lame. What - we can't share?

I agree, if no one else is around, you can chill and relax but be sure to be nice if someone shows up. It's unfortunate but most people don't have manners or even care to be nice in most social situations. I've had people shout on cell phones in crowed gyms and then get mad at me because I give them the ol' stink eye from across the room. ha.

5/5 :) I tend to be overly paranoid about others thinking I'm rude, lol. mamasitamalita, I was thinking the same thing! What's the harm of enjoying yourself if no one else is around?

this should have been an option, as it is the correct answer: "If there is no one else in the sauna, feel free to lie down and talk, but if someone joins you, make space and mum's the word."

I talk in the sauna if it is just a friend and me, but if there are others in there, I keep quiet.

I would chit chat in the sauna, but other than that I'm pretty polite
