House Rules


House Rules

 

  •  Be on time. There is a 10 burpee penalty for the first minute late. 5 burpees for each additional minute.

 

  • Do the warm-up. EVERYONE needs to warm-up properly. If you require an additional or specific warm-up, get to class early.

 

  • 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.  You know what full range of motion is, so there’s no excuse for sloppy reps.

 

  • Learn how to count. If you lose count, the next number is always 1.  If you know you have trouble keeping count, ask someone to count for you.  If you want to get on a leaderboard, you MUST have someone count for you.  If no one saw it, it didn’t happen.

 

  • Let the Coach on Duty Coach. If you see something that needs to be addressed with an athlete, bring it to the coaches attention. We do miss things, let us know and we will address it with the proper correction.

 

  • Be friendly. Walking into a new box for the first time can be very intimidating. If you see a new face, say hi…don’t ask them their Fran time.

 

  • Group class has priority to all space and equipment. If you are staying over to do additional work, get out of the way and give up your bar if needed.

 

  • Do not spit on the floor or in the entryways. No one wants to do burpees in spit that gets tracked in. And yes, people have spit on the workout floor.

 

  • Pick up all water bottles, clothing, equipment, skin, etc at the end of class.

 

  • Report any broken equipment or any damage to facility to Trainer on Duty immediately. The trainer will fill out an incident report. This is for your safety and the safety of others. If you were using the equipment as intended, you will not be asked to pay for it. If you were abusing the equipment or just being dumb we will ask that you replace it.

 

  • Do not use AbMats for knee pads during mobility.

 

  • Do not use other member’s personal jump ropes without permission.

 

  • Dropping Weight
    • Dropping is for safety
    • Do not drop empty barbells
    • Do not drop bars loaded with 10s only (they will buckle and break)
    • No excessive or forceful dropping
    • Place staging weights well away from drop zone

 

  • Technique Bars
    • These bars are marked with green paint. They are 15# aluminum bars that can bend easily and are very expensive. These bars are for light technique work only.
    • Do not add more than 15# plates to the light silver alumni technique bars
