A survey from FITNESS Magazine and Yahoo! Shine shows what annoys gym-goers most.

Here’s the press release:

FitnessMagUnfortunately, there’s no Emily Post for Gym Etiquette, so it’s no surprise 88% of gym-goers polled for a new survey from FITNESS Magazine and Yahoo! Shine said they are steamed over bad behavior at the gym.

Forty-four percent of men and women agree that the biggest gym annoyance is people not wiping down machines when they are done using them.

The exclusive survey asked 2,000 women and men to reveal what bothers them most about “sweatiquette” at the gym.

The results appear in the March 2012 issue of FITNESS, on stands now and online at Yahoo! Shine, the leading site for women’s lifestyle content.

Highlights from the findings are below.

• People who don’t wipe down the machines — 44%

• People who talk loudly on their cell phones — 40%
