House Rules

We are not your ordinary gym. Our rules are likely different from those posted at the last place you worked out. They are part of what makes us different and a large reason why our Community is so strong.

Check your ego at the door. There is always someone out there bigger, faster and stronger than you. You are most likely not a master at any of the movements you will do here, and that is part of the reason you are here.

Be on time for class. Give yourself enough time to change clothes, put on your shoes, and warmup. Respecting people means respecting their time.

Clean up after yourself. Clean up your sweat, blood and chalk. Pick up your used tape, pens, notebooks, bandages, water bottles and sweaty clothes. Put away all the equipment you used.

Respect the equipment. Put things down gently. Dropping weight should be a necessity, not a convenience. Keep your weight under control. NEVER drop an empty barbell. Don’t drop the kettlebells at all.

Take ownership. If you notice that equipment is broken, lights are out, or there’s no toilet paper, bring it to the coach’s attention so we can fix it.

Be an active part of our Community. Introduce yourself to everyone you don’t know. Post on our website and Facebook page. Follow us on Instagram and Twitter. Participate in social events. Make everyone around you better.

Know your limits. Know when to back off and when to turn it up. If you get hurt, you can’t train. If you can’t train, you can’t get more fit. You’re here to get more fit. Need advice? Ask a Coach.

Don’t cheat. No one will care what your score is, but everyone will care if you cheat. Be honest with yourself and everyone else. Use full range of motion. If you lose count, the next number is always 1.

Come to class regularly. Get consistent with your training. Don’t just do your own thing. Everyone needs coaching and can benefit from working on fundamentals. Don’t let injuries get in your way. There are always substitutions and modifications that you can make.

You are responsible for your own fitness, health and safety. Our workouts are tough. The weight is heavy. If you need to scale back, do it, and then tell the coach. This is being smart, not weak.

Don’t worry about how you look. Worry about how you perform. Function comes before aesthetics, but trust us, it’s not far behind.

Use the Coaches. They are there to help you become the best athlete you can be. Ask them questions. Ask them to critique your form. Ask them how to make yourself better.

Leave your “can’t” and your foul language at home. This place represents the pursuit of excellence. We have no room for negativity or vulgarity. Punishment is 15 burpees.
