- Don’t drop the barbell when you’re stripping the plates. When you are cleaning up, save your coach from a brain aneurysm and strip down your barbell properly. This means you should lift the barbell and slide the plates off of it, then place it back on the floor—don’t just let it crash to the ground. This is how they get damaged, they’re not cheap to replace.
- If you’ve sweated on the equipment, bled on the equipment or cried on the equipment, wipe it down. Aside from being an obvious point of hygiene, it really isn’t a pleasant sensation to grab a wall ball that’s wetter than a new born baby, or sit your ass down on an abmat that might as well have been placed against the bare skin of the person before you. Grab a paper towel and disinfectant, and take the 30 seconds to wipe down your equipment. Please do it—for everyone’s sake.
- Check in/Sign up for class on Zen. We’ve all been through WODs that have had to been altered significantly because there wasn’t enough equipment/space to go around, and it’s not fun. There are class caps for a reason, so save your coach the trouble of having to send you home for not checking in and just sign up.
- Wait until everyone has FINISHED the workout before putting equipment away. “But, I already finished my five rounds, and most of the class is still on round three!” Epic work. You smashed that workout. However, there is still a class full of active athletes. Grab your post-workout shake and cheer them on. You can pick up your equipment after everyone is finished with their workout.
- No WODing during Open Gym. WOD’s are for main class, open gym is for working on strength and skills.
- The gym can only accommodate the storing of OLY shoes. We cannot keep Nanos or trainers at the box – sorry guys you need to take them home.
