NYTimes has an interesting article on some of the most debated topics here: what to do and not do at the gym.
Some highlights include:
"The Manhattan district attorneyï¿½??s office says that Mr. Carter, a stockbroker in a spinning class at an Equinox gym on the Upper East Side, had had it with Stuart Sugarman one morning last summer. Mr. Sugarman was pedaling a couple of bikes away ï¿½?? and grunting, groaning and shouting.
Mr. Carter walked over and upended Mr. Sugarmanï¿½??s exercise bicycle, with him still on it, Mr. Sugarman said. He spent two weeks in a hospital and said he has had chronic neck and back pain ever since. Mr. Sugarman, 49, has said that he can no longer go golfing or hiking ï¿½?? or spinning.
Mr. Carter, 45, is now on trial in Manhattan Criminal Court. He could face up to a year in prison if convicted on an assault charge, a misdemeanor. "
