When someone signs up for a gym membership, there is rarely an orientation on gym etiquette. In fact, some people believe gym etiquette goes out the window because they're paying 'x' dollars a month for their membership and so should be able to do whatever they want, like use any piece of equipment whenever they want with no regards for others who may want to use that same piece--or even harass trainers while they're training clients.
As someone who's a trainer in a gym, I'm going to break down gym etiquette for you so that way you don't find yourself in an uncomfortable situation where you feel like instigating a screaming match with someone who is being blatantly rude, dismissive, and inconsiderate.
