Out of respect, and for the safety of our athletes we ask that everyone adhere to the following rules of the gym. (Courtesy of CrossFit 312)
We Squat. A Lot. Deal with it.
- The squat is a fundamental movement of the human body. Proper squat depth is considered femur parallel to the floor or deeper.
When possible, be early.
Check your ego at the door.
- Somewhere a high school kid is warming up with your PR.
Negativity will not be tolerated.
- This is a facility of awesomeness. This is a drama free zone – period. Be optimistic, have fun and push yourself and those around you to do better.
Your Mom doesn’t work here, so clean up after your self.
- Please be respectful of gym and the resources we provide you with. Please put back any and all equipment used in warm-ups and/or workouts when the class has ended.
Clean your DNA!
- Blood, Sweat, Skin, and Spit cannot remain on our equipment upon you finishing your training. If your DNA is on something, make sure to clean and sanitize it.
Be respectful of our equipment.
- ALWAYS keep your weight under control. NEVER drop an empty barbell. NEVER drop a kettlebell or dumbbell. Our equipment is expensive, treat it with respect.
- The only way to get stronger is to increase the load overtime. Push your limits while staying safe. If you don’t know how much weight to use, ask a coach and start tracking your lifts and numbers with our provided spreadsheets or in your workout log; don’t cop out and use an ‘easy’ weight.
Cheating is lame.
- Be honest with everyone else, and be honest with yourself. You know what full range of motion is, so theres no excuse for shoddy reps. If someone calls you out for doing something wrong, listen to them. Constructive criticism can only help in the long run.
Don’t Cherry-pick WODs.
- CrossFit is about being well-rounded, not just showing up on days that you can post a good score. Besides – it won’t be good for long if you don’t show up to improve at the things you’re not good at. Accountability is king, be proud of your day’s efforts.
Be respectful of others, the gear, the coaches, and show pride in your gym.
- Those Are The Rules, violations may incur “motivational consequences”
