When it comes to going to the gym, we typically encourage doing whatever feels right for your body. But when it comes to the basic dos and don'ts -- can you go naked in the sauna? should you wear flip flops in the shower -- there are a few bad habits, pet peeves and just plain improper practices that we'd like to see go the way of the dodo.

We asked Richie Frieman, the Modern Manners Guy for Quick and Dirty Tips and Jeff Halevy, CEO and founder of NYC-based Halevy Life, a private and semi-private personal training gym and HuffPost blogger, to walk us through what not to do in the locker room -- those actions that, as Halevy puts it, "break the locker room social contract."

Here are the rules we think we can all agree on. Did we miss anything? Tell us in the comments!
