Piggybacking and Bell-Ringing:  Recently, several unpaid individuals were caught sneaking into the facility by piggybacking (entering the facility behind others) and ringing the bell to gain access.  Members should not interrupt their workout to open the door for bell-ringers when staff is on duty – please allow staff to greet them and ascertain their membership status. If staff is not present kindly ask bell-ringers to sign in attendance sheet on front desk.  Please report suspicious piggybackers and bell-ringers to staff. Thank you.
