We have a few overall safety rules for the gym. If in doubt, always ask a coach for clarification or help. Kind of like a flight attendant, our coaches are here first for your safety.
Walk around – not through – an active class
For your safety, please don’t walk through an ongoing class. The garage doors are open to allow airflow, but if a class is in session when you arrive, please walk around to the entrance on 70th St. Please walk out of the parking lot to the sidewalk. Turn onto 70th St and keep walking to the last door on 70th St. If you are in the open gym and need equipment, you may walk through class, but please be careful and make eye contact with anyone you’re walking near.
We love gym dogs!
For the safety and comfort of all of our members, we have a few simple dog rules.
1 – Dogs must be kept on a leash at all times, out of the way of class and entrances/exits.
2 – Owners are responsible for cleaning up after dogs. This includes shedding! Please ask for a vacuum if your dog is shedding.
Hold onto your weights
We have a lot of neighbors, including the apartment building that shares a wall with our gym. When you drop your weights, it’s LOUD inside those apartments, so whenever possible, please hold onto your weights on the way down. On the bright side, controlling weights while lowering is one of the best ways to build strength! If you’re working on a 1-rep max or something else that requires dropping weights, please grab the crash pads. And, of course, if you need to bail out of a lift for safety, absolutely drop the weights. Just don’t make a habit of dropping weights during the workout.
