FITNESS CLASS
POLICIES & ETIQUETTE

General

Attend a class that is appropriate to your personal fitness level.

  • Turn off cell phones.
  • Be on time to get the full advantage of the warm-up. We request that you not leave the class before it is dismissed so you are assured a proper cool down and stretch.
  • Refrain from "doing your own thing." Follow the instructions given by the fitness instructors to ensure a safe and balanced class. If you need to modify your routine for a specific reason, notify the instructor before class.
  • Limit your conversation in class as it is disruptive for other members.
  • Enter class only after the previous class is finished.
  • Wear appropriate exercise attire (bathing suit or shorts and t-shirt) and supportive exercise shoes when necessary.
  • For your own protection, do not use ankle/wrist weights during the cardio portion of class.
  • Return all equipment to it’s proper place after class.
  • Refrain from the use of cologne/perfume prior to class; odor enhances as you workout.
