Fitness Center Use Guidelines

Although a Fitness Center employee will always be on duty, the Fitness Center will operate on an "exercise/lift at own risk" policy.
  1. Weight belts are not allowed on strength training machines.
  2. Appropriate attire is required at all times, including gym shoes and shirts (no skin should come in contact with any padded areas of the equipment).
  3. Only Fitness Center weight pins may be used in the weight machines.
  4. Users are recommended to bring and utilize their own towels when working out.
  5. Personal belongings are not to be brought in the Fitness Center. Backpacks, jackets, etc...can be left in cubbies located in each Fitness Center and should be cleared out at the end of the participant's workout. Keys may be kept at the Fitness Center Desk at the risk of each member.
  6. Only one set at a time may be performed on the strength training machines during peak times to allow all users equal opportunity of each machine.
  7. No food is allowed in the Fitness Center. Only beverages in spill proof bottles will be permitted.
  8. A maximum of 30 minutes is allowed on the cardio machines during peak times. Participants must sign-up in person for a time slot. If the person signed up for their time slot is late, they forfeit the reservation.
  9. Users must clean off equipment with the provided disinfectant and towels when they are done working out. Solution should be sprayed on the towel and not directly on the fitness equipment.
