I've been going to a 24 Hour Fitness near my house for about 10 years. I've been using chalk for about 4 years. I dont make a mess. I use it for griping the bar and will do push ups. Yeah it leaves a very little white spot but nothing water and a rag takes up.
There a new employee who bothers the hell out of me running around and always putting plates away during the 4pm rush. He said something to me months ago that chalk wasnt allowed. I just smiled and said ok. I was going overheard presses with the bar and not only did he walk in front of me as I was pressing up, he waited and said chalk wasnt allowed.
I'm kinda pissed really because its just chalk. I dont think he can tell me that or maybe I just dont like the way he went about it. I guess I'll start keeping a towel wet and wipe up any mess I may leave.
