RULES OF THE GAME
Our Community Rules
1. GIVE US YOUR FEEDBACK
2. WELCOME NEW MEMBERS
You have been in a place where you didn’t know anyone. When words like AMRAP or WOD was foreign language to you. None of us want to be in this state for a long time.
So, please introduce yourself to new members and help them become a memeber of our community. Who knows they may become your new best friend!
3. NO ONE LEFT BEHIND
Your WOD isn’t finished until the last member in your class is finished. If you complete your workout before someone else, find someone who hasn’t finished and cheer them on.
There will always be a WOD where you will be the last one and you may welcome that extra push or cheer to get you through it.
1. ASK FIRST, THEN TRY
2. RESPECT OUR COACHES
Please pay attention when your Coach is explaining the workout and the movements. We should refrain from loading barbells, grabbing equipment, practicing movements or discussing what you had for lunch when the coach is talking.
While you may have heard the instruction for a deadlift one thousand times, it may be the first time for the person standing next to you. Besides you may learn something new!
3. DON'T LOAD UP EARLY
4. STAY UNPLUGGED
5. SCALING IS NOT FOR SISSYS
6. KIDS AND BARBELS DON'T MIX
We love our CFK kids, but we want them to be safe. We encourage you to bring your kids with you, but all children need to be able to sit unattended at the front of the gym. If they require supervision, please have a responsible adult in attendance to supervise them.
If your child is screaming please attend to them. Children are not allowed on the equipment at any time, and must be off the gym floor during classes. This goes for any of our furry, four-legged visitors as well.
7. CONTROL YOUR BARBELS
Please control your barbells or any weight you are moving. Do not drop lightweight barbells from overhead. This is a phenomenon called Ghostriding and while you may feel cool doing it, we guarantee you won’t feel cool when your barbell hits your neighbor. So please don’t do it.
Barbells should only be dumped for safety purposes and out of necessity. We will give you one warning, after that your session is over.
8. DON'T SUFFER IN SILENCE
1. COME EARLY
2. BE ON TIME
Being consistently late for anything is not cool. And warming up properly is extremely important. We understand you have a life outside the gym and we all know that DC traffic sucks.
We won’t judge you if you show up a few minutes late once in a while, but please be respectful and ask the coach if it is ok to join late or be ready to wait until the next class if possible. Don’t assume you can jump in.
1. DON'T BE SMELLY
Please Wear Deodorant and take a bath!
2. OUR COACHES DO NOT SCOOP POOP
3. CLEAN UP YOUR MESS
EQUIPMENT AND FACILITIES
1. SPEAK UP
2. CLEAN UP
Wipe down your white boards and equipment and keep your bodily fluids off our equipment. Pick up your tape, markers, poker chips, notebooks, water bottles, clothing and gear. Put away all the equipment you used back where it belongs. Stack the boxes neatly, put the bars in the racks, stack the plates in order, and hang up your jump ropes.
If your kids make a mess, please clean up after them, especially any snacks they may have enjoyed as this draws insects. We pride ourselves on having one of the cleanest CF gyms in the area. Please help us keep it that way. Set the example and others will follow.
3. KEEP THE BATHROOMS CLEAN
