A NOTE ON SUPPLEMENTAL WORK:

I wanted to put out a friendly reminder regarding our policy for completing supplemental work outside of the regular Group Classes. If you would like to warm up or complete some supplemental skill/strength work you are welcome to do so at the discretion of the coach on schedule and when floor space is available. However you must also attend a regular Group class prior to or after completing any additional work. If you plan to complete supplemental work, please notify the coach on duty and let them know the class you plan to attend and the supplemental work you plan to complete. Please Note: The coach on duty can suspend a member’s supplemental work during a class if at any time it is deemed disruptive, unsafe, or there is not enough equipment or space available for the scheduled class. Members must first request permission from the coach on duty prior to completing supplementary work, please do not assume you can just do your own thing because you come in regularly to do supplemental work. Members should also refrain from dropping loaded barbells during the education portion of the class. Safety is always and will always be our first priority! Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

 

WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU:

JUST A FEW NOTES AND ANNOUNCEMENTS…

WHITE BOARD POSTING: 

I have received several requests to post the Daily White Board each night so some of our earlier classes and see the results for the rest of the day.  We will begin posting a picture of the day’s White Board on FB each night along with the WOD posting.

 

SUPPLEMENTAL WORK:

I wanted to put out a friendly reminder regarding our policy for completing supplemental work outside of the regular Group Classes.  If you would like to warm up or complete some supplemental skill/strength work you are welcome to do so at the discretion of the coach on schedule and when floor space is available.  However you  must also attend a regular Group class prior to or after completing any additional work.  You cannot just come in and do your own thing and not attend a regular group class.  If you plan to complete supplemental work, please notify the coach on duty and let them know the class you plan to attend and the supplemental work you plan to complete. For example, Johnny plans to attend the 5:30 p.m. Group class but wants to work on his butterfly pull-ups during the 4:30 p.m. class. Johnny would go to the coach on duty at 4:30 p.m. and let them know he plans to attend the 5:30 p.m. class, but would like to work on his pull ups during the 4:30 p.m. class. The coach on duty will let him know if this is ok.  Please Note: The coach on duty can suspend a member’s supplemental work during a class if at any time it is deemed disruptive, unsafe, or there is not enough equipment or space available for the scheduled class. Members must first request permission from the coach on duty prior to completing supplementary work, please do not assume you can just do your own thing because you come in regularly to do supplemental work. Members should also refrain from dropping loaded barbells during the education portion of the class. Safety is always and will always be our first priority!  Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
