BE EARLY. IF YOU’RE NOT EARLY, YOU’RE LATE
Give yourself enough time to change, use the restroom, do mobility,
warm up, work on weaknesses, and wash your hands before class starts.
If you miss the class warm up, you MUST wait until the next class to
do the workout (even if it means the next day). This is for your safety
and those around you.
CLEAN UP AFTER YOURSELF
Clean up your chalk, sweat, and anything else that’s yours. Pick up your used tape, pens, notebooks, scrap papers, CHALK, band-aids, water bottles, wraps, sleeves, belts and sweaty clothes. Wipe down and put all equipment you used back where it belongs. Stack the boxes neatly, put the bars in the racks, stack or rack the plates neatly, be sure to keep like plates together and hang up your jump ropes. Return all equipment to its home.
RESPECT THE EQUIPMENT. DROP AS A LAST RESORT
Put things down gently. Dropping weight should be a necessity, not a convenience. Bumper plates are designed for emergency dropping, not every rep during a tough workout. Always keep your weight under control. If you must drop, do NOT drop from overhead, guide the weight down first. NEVER drop an empty barbell. Please do not drop the kettlebells or dumbbells . 15 lb or 10 lb bars should NEVER be dropped
Please let us know if you will be bringing a friend or family member
to try out a class; note, there is a drop-in fee for the day. Of course we encourage and welcome you to bring guests, as this is how we grow!
Please check with us so that we can let you know our schedule, as
we will want extra coaches so that your guest gets the attention they deserve.
GREET NEW MEMBERS
We were all a newbie at one point. Remember being told to “grab that kettlebell and give me 21 swings and then get on that there rower, and for good measure, give me 15 pushups…now do that 3 times…FAST!” As easy as that sounds now, that is intimidating for a newbie. So please take the time to introduce yourself to new members. For you newbies, introduce yourself to all members, these are the people you are going to shed blood, sweat, and tears with.
WE ARE A TEAM
And we should work out as a team and FINISH TOGETHER. No one should ever strip their bars or put their equipment back until the last person is done the WOD. Encourage those around you to finish strong if you finish before them. Help them through it.
When using chalk, please keep hands in the bucket, and over the
wooden areas if possible. Chalk can get pretty messy, so keep as much in the bucket as possible. Using chalk for pullups works for a few, but is dangerous for most. The chalk can get pasty and peel the skin away even faster. Use with caution on the pullup bars.
Note we do sell liquid chalk if you prefer not to use the chalk buckets.
Always be sure to wipe down the bars when you’re done.
CHECK OUR WEBSITE DAILY
Our website, emails and Facebook are our way of communicating
with you. Know the WOD before you come in, they can be found in
the Zenplanner App. We also post notifications of events…and cool
pictures of members on our social media pages at: Facebook.com/

CHILDREN ARE NOT ALLOWED ON THE GYM FLOOR DURING ACTIVE WOD SESSIONS
This is for obvious reasons. We love kids, and want to keep them around, so please keep a close eye on your children as they must be under adult supervision at all times. The equipment in our BOX is very inviting to children, so please keep an eye on your children and keep them away from the equipment as there are many potential hazards.
For optimal results, we recommend eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no to very limited sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Beneficial plans such as Paleo -Zone will provide you with the best body composition, performance, and health. You will absolutely hum with energy and power. If you are unsure what to eat or how to structure your meals, see your coaches and schedule a one-on-one session they will be sure to connect you that
NOT FEELING WELL?
If you’re not feeling well, especially if you have a temperature, STAY
Seriously. This is where the magic happens. Sleep is your express train to recovery, so get as much as possible.
BRING YOUR OWN “TOOLS”
This includes tape, gloves, towels, water, jump rope, long socks, belts, shin guards, knee sleeves and did we mention long socks?
TRACK YOUR PROGRESS
Everyone should be keeping a workout journal to track their progress and to record their strength days and also benchmark WODS. “How much should I lift coach?”. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm…your journal will tell you.
Need help choosing a journal we have some on site!
WORK HARD, STAY FOCUSED, AND GET INVOLVED
Get focused for your WODS. It is one hour per day, 4 to 5 days per week. This is your time to shine, to spoil yourself, and feel the best you’ve ever felt. Go hard, heavy (yet safe), fast, and use the techniques you have learned, and you will be rewarded! Get involved with your fellow members, stay after, work on your weaknesses, help those around you, and even compete in local, state, national competitions. This is not only about getting in the best shape of your life, it’s about being part of a community, something bigger than just looking good. Interested in competing inquire about our Competition Club. Taking care of your health bottom line, can be one of the most exciting parts of your life. There is nothing else like it! And of course, above all else, we make it fun and you’re worth the work you put in!
