1. CLEAN YOUR SPACE / EQUIPMENT:
PUT IT AWAY!
Sweat all over the floor? MOP IT UP!
Wipe down all your equipment with disinfectant and put it back.
Please DO NOT SPRAY BIKE, ROWER or SKI ERG SCREENS.
2. DON'T DROP THE BARBELL WHEN YOU ARE STRIPPING OFF PLATES:
Want to see your coach turn into a demon in less than 3 seconds?! Dropping an empty barbell to the floor is a sure-fire way to make it happen! Remove a plate from one side of the bar, gently place the barbell collar on the floor and repeat on the other side.
3. DON'T STEAL OTHER PEOPLE'S EQUIPMENT:
Before a workout, claim your pull up bar and keep your equipment in your own space.
4. DON'T BE LATE:
We have a lot of work to accomplish in one hour. It is essential that you are properly warmed up before jumping into a workout. If you are able to avoid being late, please do so as a courtesy to other members
5. PAY ATTENTION WHEN THE COACH IS GIVING INSTRUCTIONS:
It is disrespectful to talk while a coach is giving instruction. Some workouts are a little more complex. If you offer your full attention during instruction, it will help the coach not have to repeat themselves. We only like to repeat our Fran Times. Everywhere. To Everyone.
6. DON'T HAVE A CONVERSATION DURING THE WORKOUT:
You may be hindering someone else's performance by holding a conversation mid workout. Save your comments for post WOD. "Less talking, more squatting."
7. RESPECT AN ATHLETE'S SPACE:
Make sure you are giving one another ample space to workout. If someone is preparing for a major lift, do not walk in front of or behind them. If they need to bail, you don't want to be in the way or have the athlete fall back on your equipment.
8. NO DROPPING DUMBBELLS OR KETTLEBELLS FROM OVERHEAD:
This can damage the equipment and can also cause it to bounce into other people. The same rules apply for barbells with 10lb plates or rubber/bouncy plates. Those should be dropped no higher than hip level.
9. INTRODUCE YOURSELF TO NEWCOMERS:
It it is a drop-in or a potential new member, always introduce yourself. We have all be the new person at the gym. Make everyone feel welcome!
