Let’s assume that you have earned yourself a good value among all the beginners in your gym through your athletic physique and the amount of weight you lift. You have been working hard on your training, nutrition and recently you have bought yourself a couple of fitness magazines too! That’s great. Now, everything you wish is to become an alpha-athlete and gain a little more respect from both, veteran lifters and newbies. All in all, you want to be called as an asset to the gym.

The very first thing you need to do to become more receptive to courtesy in the gym is by doing away with your habit of offering unsolicited advice to beginners.
