1. Be courteous and Helpful. Disrespect to any member of our gym will not be tolerated. Try to be a good person.
2. Do not say “I can’t” or “I won’t”. If you have an injury, please let a coach know and movements will be scaled for you. There is no other reason to not perform a workout. This is a community environment, and we will not allow bad examples to be set.
3. Treat the equipment and the gym with respect. Do not drop empty barbells or barbells with only one #10 weight on each side. Do not drop the #15 barbells under any circumstances. When stripping weight from a bar do it properly. Slide the plates off and don’t let the empty barbell crash on the floor. Put equipment back where you found it. Clean up after yourself. This means cleaning up your chalk bombs.
4. Check your ego at the door. The coaches are present for a reason. Do not argue if we ask you to take weight off the bar, or scale a movement.
5. Come early, stay late. Get to the gym at least 10 minutes early, mobilize and stretch. Figure out what weights you will be working with before the workout. If you have time afterwards, do your Street Cred and work a little more on mobility and flexibility where you need it. Coaches will be happy to help you with this.
6. Take care of yourself. Make sure you are getting enough sleep, and are eating enough to fuel your workouts.
7. Come prepared to work hard. The only number we care about is if you’re giving it 100%. If you are not trying hard and pushing yourself, you will be asked to leave the gym, again this is a community environment and we will not allow bad examples to be set.
8. Respect the coaches. If the coach is demoing a movement or giving instruction to the group, don’t make them talk over you. Put your phones away and don’t check them excessively, your hot date can wait.
9. Educate yourself. Take a look at our workouts before you come in. Write down what exercises you do in class. Youtube a movement if you’ve never done it before.
10. Please practice proper hygiene. You will get sweaty, and you will have to spot or partner with other members. Wear deodorant, try to smell nice.
11. Have fun and smile! Try and enjoy it! You’re getting stronger, faster and more awesome!
