Hygiene and Gym Etiquette Reminders

germ-pic

We all need a few reminders throughout the year in regards to gym etiquette and hygiene.
-Please keep in mind as we head into cold and flu season if you are sick or think you are coming down with something, stay at home until you are well. It will prevent the spread to other members and will allow your body to rest and fully recover.
-If your fluids (sweat, blood, pee, etc) get on the floor, equipment, rig, or any place in the gym, please be sure to clean it up with the Clorox wipes. If you can’t find the wipes, the coaches will be happy to point you in the right direction.
-Please be cognizant of equipment being used by other members and check with those around you before taking it for your own use or using that particular spot on the rig.
-Please watch where you drop your bars as they do bounce and could hit another member.
We are concerned about the safety and health of all of our members and with everyone’s help, we can keep the gym a clean and safe environment.

2016. A New Year. A New Goal. Make It Happen.

It’s that time of year. We are looking back on 2015 and welcoming 2016. It’s that time when many people come up with New Year’s resolutions they will most likely break within the first month. What’s ironic is that people sometimes claim that New Year’s resolutions are meant to be broken. We are looking at this all wrong. Trust me,…

Product Review: The Nike Metcons By: Matt Booth

These are Nike's version of CrossFit shoes. They are the Nike Metcons. 1) How are the Nike Metcons different from other CrossFit shoes on the market? The main differences are more arch support and a narrower toe box (compared to Reebok Nanos).  They also have a more solid heel in my opinion, which helps to feel more grounded and stable…

Conclusion of the 2015 Open

The Open is Over “Ok, just do ten.” “Seven is good.” “Come on, pick up the bar. You’re an athlete!” “You are definitely NOT an athlete.” “Butt down, chest up.” (Misses clean.) “Motherf***in butt!” “Oh my god, it’s the first thirty seconds and I can’t breathe.” “Oh my god, I’m not even half way.” “S*** I only have a…
