Weight Safety

Don't Drop Weights: keep weights under control as you lower to floor for your safety and the safety of those around you

Use Clips: place clips on all Olympic bars when in use for your safety


For your safety, athletic shoes covering the entire foot must be worn in strength and cardio areas. Crocs, flip flops, sandals, slides, or bare feet are not allowed.
