Tip #1: Cover Up!
Towels were invented for a reason–use one! Don’t walk around like a National Geographic documentary. Even if you have–um, “gifts”–that would make most doctors gasp and say, “Nurse, get my sketchpad! I have to document this!” please wrap up.
Tip #2: Watch Where You Sit
Hand in hand with #1, if you are wet—either from the shower or your workout—please dry off before sitting or lying down on the locker room bench. You don’t have to be a germaphobe to understand this one.
Tip #3: Wash Your Hands
For the love of hygiene people, wash your hands! This is a no brainer. You’d be surprised how many times I am in the locker room and see someone pass right by the sink after using the bathroom. Even my two-year-old daughter knows better.
