1. Sign In
Sign in before every WOD. It allows us to monitor class sizes and memberships virtually and lets us know if we have to add more classes. Then grab your log book or device and check your previous data for the WOD or movements and write your name on the whiteboard and hit the posted warm up. If any unfamiliar movements appear on the warm up get a coach’s attention.
2. Talk To Us!
If you notice that equipment is broken, lights are out, there’s no toilet paper, bring it to our attention so we can do something about it. If you are concerned about a weight, movement, or are injured TELL US.
3. Be On Time
When possible, arrive early and stay late to cheer, clap and encourage others. Anything less is to cheat yourself of the experience and to rob others of the gift of your presence and support as part of the community.
Respect the coach and listen while the coach is going over points of performance. If you are a veteran and think you don’t need the instruction on points of performance then why does your form still suck? No one’s form is perfect enough, not even the coaches’. Virtuosity is the goal. Do not talk when the coach is talking and move with the group when the coach instructs. This interferes with time management and the safety of each member of the class.
5. Put Your Ego On Standby
Check your ego at the door… Being worried about how much you are lifting versus how much the person next to you is lifting is one of the quickest ways to get hurt. Leave your ego at the door and focus on getting a good workout in….But keep it close by to safely drive your competitive juices.
6. Negativity Is Nonsense.
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. Positive attitude and talk. Attitude and effort earn respect. Work hard. Don’t drag people down with negativity. Be optimistic, have fun and push yourself and those around you to do better. When you are done with your WOD cheer others on or use your intuition if they need to be in their own zone.
7. Yo Momma Doesn’t Work Here, So Put Away Your Toys.
Please be respectful of the 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.
8. 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.
9. Make Sure You Count
If you lose count go back to the last rep you remember. You’ll only let it happen once or twice before you start to focus.
10. Cheating Is LAME.
Don’t cheat. No one cares what your score was. Everyone cares if you cheated. Be honest with everyone else, and be honest with yourself.
11. 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.
12.Come To Class
Showing up is the hardest part. For newbies, make sure you’re staying consistent. For veterans, don’t start thinking that it’s okay to just do your own thing whenever you want to. There’s a myriad of reasons we have class.
