I bet these days, no one can be separated from their phones. Even for a split second. I admit I'm always stuck with my phone. I guess it's my partner forever and ever. Even in the toilet the phone is there. Well some have it while making business while others, may be its to capture something nice *wink wink*.
Having a phone is great. Well, you can call, text, play games, snap pics and so much more *cough*. But there should be a place and time to have or even use your phone. I'm not saying no to it, but be reasonable. I get sarcastic voices around me whenever I go out with friends and family, thus I try to reduce my usage of it.
So lets talk about the gym. I know, I know, guys you're pretty famous with so many folks. You need to update your Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Whatsapp, Line every single minute during gym hours. I'm not saying you can't but it tends to be inconsiderate I would say. If the gym was empty with hardly any soul around it is surely okay. But imagine with just a limited amount of weights and strength machines around, lots of folks wanting to get in shape, and you, who will like do 1 rep which last for 20 seconds then turning to your phone for like 5 minutes. Hogging the equipment while you work out with your phone instead of the machine. How great is that? Like seriously?
I'm not sure of whether you gym junkies or hunkies out there carry your phone around and actually fiddle with it while working out?. I won't say I've never done it, I do do it at times but I try to look at my phone after I'm done with all my reps. Most of the time I would just keep in the locker and only check on it before shower. There have been folks in the gym whom I see would just sit at the machine for quite some time not using it but merely fiddling with their phones. When you approach them asking if they are using it the reply you get is "Yes I am", but only after another 5-10 minutes on the phone. The cycle goes on until they are practically done making out with their phones.
Apart from that, I would say its a distraction as well. Your focus should be on the workout routine or something and not your phone.
The usage of a phone *wink wink*
