Weight Room Rules. Reminder to members that dropping weights (un)intentionally loudly on the floor is prohibited. It could damage the weights, the floor under the thin carpet, other members ear drums and most certainly indicates you are not using good/proper form/technique which could result in injury to oneself.  Keep the weight speed of repetition and range of motion under control at all times and gentle place the weights down. This applies to all forms of weights; dumbbells, kettlebells, weight plates and the selectorized pin-set weight machines (weight stacks should not be put down/clicked between each repetition – only upon last repetition).

Resistance band station (located on the wall opposite the mirror in the group exercise room).  Reminder that the horizontal rack is for storage only.  Members should use the vertical racks for working out.  Slide the resistance band of your choice into the desired height slot and use the metal clips to secure the band in so it does not travel and slide out.  See more detailed safety instructions and exercises posted on the wall.
