Drop-in Fitness Class Etiquette

To keep your workouts fun and safe for all, follow these guidelines.

  • Be respectful to all staff and fellow participants. This is a group workout in a community space.
  •  Arrive on time to class. Latecomers are not permitted after 5 minutes.
  • Use lockers for personal belongings and store all equipment in a safe area to the side.
  • Be sure to participate in the warm up, cool down and stretch to help prevent injury. Each component of the class is equally important.
  • Listen to your body and work at your own pace. Ask for help if needed.
  • Keep hydrated! Drink water before, during and after the class.

If you are new to the class, arrive early and introduce yourself to the instructor. Review the PAR-Q+ form annually to ensure you are ready to begin exercise.
