If your not early, you’re late! Give yourself enough time to sign into Wodify, get your workout equipment on and warm up before class. Being late is disrespectful to coaches, and interrupts your fellow class members.
LEAVE YOUR EGO AT THE DOOR
Safety first, somewhere a high school kid is warming up with your PB! Accidents and injuries can happen, they are more prone to happen as a result of impatience and ignorance, so leave your ego at the door. Slow down, ask questions and ask for help.
Put away all your equipment, stack the boxes & Kettlebells neatly, put the bars back in the racks and stack the plates in correct order. Clean up your sweat, handprints, blood and puke! Don’t spit on our floor…. EVER. Pick up your used tape, clickers, chalk, water bottles and sweaty clothes. Remember there are classes after yours.
RESPECT OUR EQUIPMENT
Drop bars, plates and Kettlebells as LAST RESORT. Put things down gently. Dropping weights should be a necessity, not a convenience. Bumper plates are designed for emergency dropping, not dropping after every rep on Fran! ALWAYS keep your weights under control and NEVER drop an empty barbell. Our equipment was expensive so please respect it.
Effort earns respect. Work hard and don’t drag people down with a bad attitude. Have fun, be optimistic and always push yourself and others around you to do better.
NEVER SAY "I CAN’T"
Always strive to go a little heavier and a little faster. When you want something you have never had, you have to do something you have never done. Push your limits.
No one cares what your score was. Be honest with everyone else and be honest with yourself. There are no excuses for bro reps (half reps), you’re only cheating yourself.
COME TO CLASS
For newbies, make sure you stay consistent. For oldies, don’t start thinking it’s okay to do your own thing whenever you want. No matter how experienced you are, you still need coaching and can still stand to work on the basics. If you have extra things you’re working on feel free to come early or stay after class.
Positive grunting, screaming and cheering are all welcomed and encouraged during your time here. Just remember there can be such thing as too loud, rude or offensive.
CHEER, CLAP AND ENCOURAGE
Anything less is to cheat yourself of the experience, rob others of the gift of your presence and support as part of the CrossFit Inventive Community. We see each other as family and we are all here for the same reasons.
