  • Weight Room Policies

-Please DO NOT DROP or throw weights and/or equipment.

Please maintain control of weights and equipment at all times during use. If you hear a “bang” or the weight bounces on the floor, you are dropping weights. Every time a weight is dropped, it endangers yourself and others around you, damages the floor, disrupts classes and offices, and lowers the life expectancy of the weight. Patrons who carelessly drop weights and have been asked more than once to stop dropping weights will be asked to leave the weight room. If you are performing deadlifts, please do not bang the weights on the floor, and use spotters on all heavy lifts.

Please re-rack and/or return weights and equipment to their proper storage areas after use.

  • - Please use a locker or cubby for all personal belongings.
