For first-timers, the gym can feel like an intimidating tangle of machines that look like torture devices, bodies way harder than yours, and all sorts of unfamiliar etiquette. When you start sweating before your workout even begins, you know you’re stressing too much about all these pressures.

Don’t worry, though: Check out the video above to learn the do’s and do-not-do’s of proper gym behavior, including:

  • How not to scream weird Euro disco songs while lifting.
  • The latest in anti-rhyming tech.
  • Where you should leave the spandex (spoiler: on the rack in the store, unpurchased).

If you follow these tips and more — plus make sure not to stink up the joint by applying Gillette Clear Gel — you’ll be happily hammering out stress-free reps and sets (um, whatever those are) in no time.
