Stepping on benches in the public gym? : GYM

Hi, new here, and fairly new to working out in the gym. I hope I’m posting in the correct place, (because AskReddit is supposed to be thought provoking or something…..) I want to follow this particular exercise plan, and some of the exercises involve stepping up or jumping up and down on the benches. I’m just wondering if this is something you can do /or are allowed to do in a public gym??

I find it strange to step up on a bench someone might use lie down on later to sit up or something. Or is there a particular set of shoes that we’re supposed to set aside only for use indoors especially for gyms? For the few times I’ve been at the gym (around 8 – 10 times), I’ve never seen anyone step on the bench.
