We are not your ordinary gym. Our rules are likely different from those posted at the last place you worked out. They are part of what makes us different and a large reason why our Community is so strong.
Check your ego at the door. There is always someone out there bigger, faster and stronger than you.
Be on time for class. Give yourself enough time to change clothes, put on your shoes, and warmup.
Clean up after yourself. Clean up your sweat, blood and chalk. Pick up your used tape, pens, notebooks, bandages, water bottles and sweaty clothes. Put away all the equipment you used.
Respect the equipment. Put things down gently. Dropping weight should be a necessity, not a convenience. Keep your weight under control. NEVER drop an empty barbell. Don’t drop the kettlebells or dumbbells.
Take ownership. If you notice that equipment is broken, lights are out, there’s no toilet paper, bring it to our attention so we can fix it.
Be an active part of our Community. Introduce yourself to everyone you don’t know. Post on our website. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter. Come out to our monthly social events. Make everyone around you better.
Know your limits. Know when to back off and when to turn it up. If you get hurt you can’t train. If you can’t train, you can’t get more fit. You’re here to get more fit. Need advice? Ask your Coach.
Don’t cheat. No one will care what your score is, but everyone will care if you cheat. Be honest with yourself and everyone else. Use full range of motion. If you lose count, the next number is always 1.
Come to class regularly. Get consistent with your training. Don’t just do your own thing. Everyone needs coaching and can benefit from working on the basics. Don’t let injuries get in your way. There are always substitutions and modifications that you can make.
You are responsible for your own fitness, health and safety. Our workouts are tough. The weight is heavy. If you need to scale back, or aren’t comfortable, tell the coach, and do so. This is being smart, not weak.
Don’t worry about how you look. Worry about how you perform.
Use the Coaches. They are there to help you become the best athlete you can be. Ask them questions. Ask them to critique your form. Ask them how to make yourself better.
Shirts are optional. Guys, shirts are optional. Ladies, sports bras are welcome. Wear what’s comfortable. It’s all about performance and results here.
