How should the subject of etiquette be approached?

We've all seen it - someone not wiping down sweaty equipment or talking on their cell phone on the gym floor. It's called etiquette. And many gym-goers need to learn a little bit about it.

This is the time of the year that is most important. With many new members going through clubs' doors with New Year's resolutions fresh in their minds, they not only need to be educated on the do's and don'ts at a club but those who have been there awhile need to be reminded, too. If a newbie sees a veteran commit a transgression they they may feel it is OK.

Check out what some IHRSA members have to say on the subject.
