She also added that gyms should consider setting up new rules in order for people to maintain their privacy.
“I need to set up a proper home gym because these tripods that people have set up at the gym are not it. Can’t even work out freely, always checking that the camera isn’t pointing your way. New gym rules please

Many who headed to the comment section agreed with Pearl that the cameras were a little too much.
“I’ve been saying that gyms should consider having designated areas for fitness influencers to record their workouts or take pictures, it’s really uncomfortable trying to workout next to someone who is recording,” one person said.
Others however feel bad for influencers who sometimes rely on their workout content as a source of income.
“Yea it’s better you set up your own gym sana because what if that’s someone’s job though ? Let’s be respectful of other people’s grinds,” someone remarked.
