There were no blue jeans or T-shirts, no sneakers or flip-flops and not a single exposed midriff in sight. Even the music was unexpected -- a choreographed waltz performed before an audience of friends and family. It was a night of elegance, complete with white gowns and tuxedos, pearls and shiny shoes.

" This isn't exactly etiquette boot camp, but one message has been drilled home -- first impressions are lasting impressions.

It's not your fault. You don't know what you don't know. When you got your health club membership, you went through the standard sales presentation from the sales guy, the "three free sessions" with one of the club trainers, and then you were thrown in the deep end of the proverbial pool without a set of floaties. You learned how to use the machines, what the child care hours were and what day the gym will take your money every month. Through all this, you never learned what is commonly considered proper gym etiquette until "Joe the Bench Presser" is all over you for a flagrant violation of one or a few.
