In the buff: Nudity, no wipe-downs among gym rats’ pet peeves

WASHINGTON – Many people avoid going to the gym for one reason or another, and a new survey shows 90 percent of gym-goers are irritated by something in their exercise experience.

The Yahoo!/Fitness Magazine survey found that the No. 1 workout-related pet peeve is people who conveniently forget to wipe down equipment after using it.

Close behind are those who talk loudly on their cellphones while working out.

Also near the top of the list: Gym rats who hog machines, and those who walk around naked in the locker room.
