It doesn't matter whether you work out at the toniest spa-like gym or frequent a basement bargain dungeon. If you stay at any workout facility long enough, you will see some gross -- and just plain ODD -- things. Like, for instance: No. You should not blow dry your pubic hair at the gym. Just FYI.
Yes, we all know we are supposed to wipe down equipment after use, but sometimes I feel like the only person who actually adheres to that rule. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.
But just how disgusting can it get? Personally, I don't spend a whole lot of time in the locker room -- I'm a get-in, get-out kind of girl. So the nastiest things I witness are usually related to sweat pools and unwiped stairmasters. We asked around, though, and some of the most horrifying things people have seen at the gym will shock you. Be warned: That which is read cannot be unread.
