Cornell’s Fitness Centers (CFC) have decided that it is no longer safe to text while on the equipment at the gym. Due to the increasing number of students falling of machines while texting staff are required to tell people to please not text while they run, jog, sit-up, or even use weights (for preventative measures and understandably so).

CFC is also going to be placing signs next to those which say “Please Only Sign Up for Cardio Machines for 30 Minutes” that say “Don’t Text and Run, Save Lives.”

Get your lift on. Not your text on.
