Chalk stays in the buckets!
Clean up. Put away your toys. Clean up your sweat and wipe down the equipment with the sanitary wipes. Pick up your used tape, band-aids, water bottles and sweaty clothes. Put away all the equipment where it belongs. Stack the boxes neatly, put the bars in the racks, stack the plates neatly, and hang up your jump ropes.
Respect our equipment. NEVER drop an empty barbell. NEVER drop a kettlebell or dumbbell.
Try hard. Effort earns respect. Work hard. Don’t drag people down with a bad attitude. Be optimistic, have fun and push yourself and those around you to do better. If you are done with the WOD, cheer on those that aren’t.
Intensity is key. The only way to get stronger is to increase intensity and then load. Always strive to go a little faster before you go heavier. Never say, “I can’t.” When you want something you’ve never had, you have to do something you’ve never done. Push your limits.
Don’t cheat. No one cares what your score was. Everyone cares if you cheated. Be honest with everyone else, and be honest with yourself. You know what full range of motion is, so there’s no excuse for shoddy reps. If someone calls you out for doing something wrong, listen to them. The person standing around watching you work out has a much better perspective on what you’re doing than you do. When you are working at max heart rate and trying to breathe, you’re biased, trust us.
Learn how to count. If you lose count, the next number is always 1. If you know you have trouble keeping count, ask someone to count for you. If you want to get on a leader board, you MUST have someone count for you. If no one saw it, it didn’t happen.
Come to class. Stay consistent.
Stay safe and keep your fellow crossfitters safe.
