Situational awareness is usually talked about when you are looking at responding in emergency situations. The problem is that understanding where you are and what is going on around you is ALWAYS important. In this age of faces shoved into cell phones, everyone's heads are down and literally will walk right into you if you aren't careful. Now as easy as I could start talking about posture etc, that's not what this is. Today it's about understanding what's going on around you. Sure many of us think we are the center of the universe, but even being at the very center means that you need to know and understand the things spinning around you. Let's take being in the gym, first off, no one there owns a particular spot, or bar or ball. So if you need to move around a little, or you see that someone has your special bar, don't freak out. It will be ok. Just get another one. This doesn't mean you can just go and grab whatever is on the floor and claim it as your own. If you are looking for a spot on the rig but not sure if someone has it or not, then ask. Don't do butterfly pull-ups with the chalk bucket right next to where your feet are flinging all over the place so that you chance knocking it over and spilling chalk everywhere. Leave the chalk pieces in the buckets. I see it more often than not that someone will take their own special piece of chalk and put it somewhere for their "lightning fast transitions", and then LEAVE IT there. If you are running in and out of the room on a workout, know that others are throwing weights around. Look out for them and the bars. If you need to use the bathroom, then spray the “unpoop” spray when you are done. And guess what ANY SMELL smells bad in the gym so no one wants to smell Body Odor, or a heavily perfumed or body sprayed body at ANY time in the gym. Wear deodorant when you come in and put your perfume on in your car. Basically, there is a whole wide world out there around you with things happening. Keep your head up, see what's going on, anticipate what will happen, or what you will need to do, so you are prepared for it, be kind and be ready to help!! :)
