>Check your ego at the door! Leave it at home, in the car or any where else, but here. Somewhere there is a high school kid warming up with your PR.
>Arrive early, if you are not then you’re late. Give yourself enough time to sign in, change, and warm-up before class starts. Try and give yourself at least 10 min. Wear proper gym attire.
>Always be Supportive and offer encouraging words to your fellow athletes. Cheer, clap and encourage others. Your presence is appreciated more then you know. Be ready for high fives when the work out is finished! You are part of an amazing group of people. Although you train as an individual we workout as a team.
>Introduce yourself to new athletes and help to make them feel welcomed. You were new once too and this can be an intimidating place.
>Respect our equipment. Put things down gently. Barbells with rubber plates are designed to be dropped, but please avoid dropping barbells with 10lb plates. Please do not drop empty barbells, especially the lighter ones. This also applies to metal dumbbells, iron plates, and the kettlebells. The equipment we use is costly, and the more we have to replace it, the more we’re going to have to charge you.
>Control your barbell bounce - bumper plates bounce and usually sideways, especially the 10s and 15s. Never drop a bar and walk away. Please be courteous of you neighbour, there is no need to throw them down and injure someone in the process. Keep your hands in contact with the bar as you drop and control where it goes.
>Clean up after yourself, i.e Bumpers should be stacked nicely, kettlebells put away neatly, Med balls stacked along the wall, jump ropes hung up in the proper location, Plyo boxes tucked away and bands hung up. Ring straps to be re-velcroed after use.
>Take your DNA with you and Clean your biological off your gear after use, i.e Med balls, abmats, barbells, kettle bells, pull up bar. We have all the proper cleaning supplies. We promise to keep a clean box by cleaning nightly, but biologicals come off equipment a lot easier fresh then dried on.
>Pick up your used tape, pens, notebooks, scrap papers, chalk, band-aids, water bottles and sweaty clothes. We appreciate the help and a tidy gym is a happy gym.
>Chalk is useful, but messy. Please be respectful of the staff, air filters system and future classes. When applying chalk, keep hands in or near chalk bucket.
>The phrase “I can’t” is not in our vocabulary. By showing up daily you have proven “you can.” All we ask is to try.
>Don’t cheat. No one cares what your score was. Everyone cares if you cheated. Be honest with everyone else, and be honest with yourself. If someone calls you out for doing something wrong, listen to them.
