Make The Gym A Friendly Place.

This Sparked Me!

I work out late at night, and see the same other late-night exercisers at my gym over and over. It seems to be the norm, at ALL the fitness centers I've gone to, to NOT MAKE EYE CONTACT when one is exercising, and definitely to NOT TALK to other exercisers...like we're each in our own private bubble. But since there's such a small, regular group at Snap in the late hours, I've started saying HI to people, and smiling. Let's POP that antisocial bubble, and generate some community and support!

    This is a great suggestion and should be incorporated into every aspect of life. I think people are so focused on their own problems they forget to take the time to smile or speak to one another. It's sad sometimes. I think we'd al feel a lot better if we got more involved.
