MAC FITNESS CENTER ETIQUETTE 1. If you use it, please put it away. For safety reasons, please re-stack your weights and dumbbells after you are finished using them. Also, please be courteous to other members by placing bands, steps, balls, periodicals, etc. back in proper storage areas. 2. Please clean up after yourself. Once you are finished with a piece of equipment, please wipe it clean with disinfectant spray. This will ensure for a cleaner and healthier workout environment. 3. Share with other members. Instead of getting upset when someone is monopolizing a piece of strength equipment, just ask to “work in.” This means you are taking turns lifting while they rest between sets. 4. Be aware of surroundings. Don’t rest on equipment. If doing multiple reps, please get up while you rest and let others work in with you. 5. Please follow rules. Be considerate of the other members by observing the cardio usage limits posted in the Fitness Center. Please wear appropriate attire while working out. Street clothes such as sandals and jeans are not permitted. Since the majority of members arrive in their workout attire, please be cognizant at all times of the cleanliness of your shoes. Dirt, mud, and grime will decrease the longevity of the fitness equipment. Also, avoid using cell phones in the Fitness Center. It can be distracting to others as well as dangerous. Cell phones are allowed in the Fitness Center only in case of emergencies. 6. Loud noises can happen. During workouts, breathing heavily is a normal part of many people’s exercise habits. However, please be respectful of other members working out and those who are receiving a massage and try to keep the grunting and groaning to a minimum. 7. Where is my stuff? Lockers are provided for your personal belongings. Please only bring what you need for your workout to the Fitness Center. 8. Don’t share your illness. Please do not workout when you are sick. Not only is it possible to infect others, but it is also very counterproductive.
