As concerns about phonecam misbehavior grow, an increasing number of healthclubs in the US are banning mobile devices with embedded cameras:
So far, gym bans on camera phones have occurred mostly outside the Washington area. Celebrity-laden clubs in Los Angeles, including the Sports Club/LA, already have nixed camera phones.

Cameras are not allowed inside those clubs without written permission, and "the new camera-cell phone combinations are no exception to this rule," said spokeswoman Shannon May. The rule appears on signs posted in every club, she said. The chain operates no fitness centers in the District, Maryland or Virginia. But most local workout spots haven't gone quite that far -- at least not yet.
