Each fall more people join gyms, which are unique communities with their own rules and regulations. At Mettler, we strive to provide a healthy, fun workout environment for everyone. However, even our veterans need a reminder to dress
appropriately in the gym. By following these rules, all members will be able to enjoy their workouts. Select appropriate clothes.
You'll need close-toed shoes to run, lift, and participate in classes. Make sure you wear comfortable shorts or pants. Pay attention to smells.
Clean shirts cut down on smells, but in a pinch, fabric freshener works. We also provide deodorant in the locker rooms in case you've forgotten yours. If you're hitting the treadmill before a class, you might want to towel off and change shirts, too. Also, limit strong-smelling perfumes/colognes. Practice mobile manners.
Please do not bring your cell phone on to the fitness floor but leave it behind in your locker on vibrate. And remember that members who are getting dressed may not care to listen to your latest ringtone. Turn down the sound.
You might love running to oldies, but your neighbor would rather watch TV. Be aware of surroundings.
If someone is working on a mat, give them room to complete their stretches. If you're filling up a water bottle, let those waiting for a drink cut in line. Make sure others are done with weights before taking them. Rotate with other members.
Waiting for a machine can be annoying. If you're resting between sets, let others switch in. They'll return the favor when you need a certain machine later. Leave equipment in the area you found it.
Our free weights are placed near mirrors so you don't have to move them. Please use them only in the weight area and return them to their racks when you're done. Wipe off machines when you're done using them.
Spray bottles and cloth towels are provided so you can wipe down your equipment after using it. You'll limit the spread of germs, too. Lift weights that you're comfortable with.
Weights that are too heavy can slam loudly, interrupting those around you. By staying within your comfort zone, weights are less likely to slip and crash.
We know you're working hard to achieve Whole Life Fitness. By following these simple, common courtesy rules, all of our members can have the best experience possible.
