I love the people in my sports conditioning class but there are a couple who are big time chatterers.

I probably have others, but my biggest "quirk" is that I'm totally OCD about my yoga mat. I can't do yoga unless my yoga mat is lined up straight with the room -- especially if there are lines on the floor -- and with any nearby mats. If I'm in a crowded class and have to have my mat near someone's crooked mat it will drive me crazy to the point I can't concentrate on the yoga. I have "secretly" straightened other people's mats when they walk away to get props.

Does it bother you if the step if facing the wrong way w/ the letters upside down? I know someone who will fix other people's steps.

I'm like that with steps, too. I've seen people have it off-kilter where one side is higher than the other (with the risers that click in) or off the risers.

I don't care about right side up, but I thought the steps have the logo on both sides so it doesn't matter anyway? Anyway I never noticed if there's a right side up.


I am careful about making sure the steps are "locked" in and also I don't like steps where the black matting is peeling up, because I feel like it's a tripping hazard.

The steps with the risers have the words printed in one direction. I didn't notice until someone started straightening them and told me why.

it drives me nuts when equipment isn't parallel to the lines of the floor tiles.
