Important Note to Members

By brett kokoruda | In News & Events | on September 1, 2015

Hey Guys,

You’ve probably noticed by now that we have a new neighbor. Partner’s Health Care will be opening their doors for business this Wednesday September 2nd.  There will be physicians, nurses and clients there 7 days a week from 9am to 9pm and they will need us to be respectful of their needs regarding noise and vibrations.  While we are actively seeking a number of very promising solutions to this problem, we need to temporarily suspend the dropping of weights in the gym on the floor and might also need to make other minor modifications to the programming.  Trust me when I say that I am doing everything in my power to remedy this as quickly as possible however for the next couple of months we need your support in following this new protocol.  I’m sure many of you will have questions but below is a general guideline for the temporary new rules which we will have to enforce strictly.

  1. No weights are to be dropped on the floor. If you are failing a rep and your safety is compromised then this is of course an exception. Please only choose weights that you can control both up and down.
  2. We will attempt to change our programming as little as possible but please choose submaximal weights, especially on the Olympic Lifts until we resolve this issue.
  3. The rule also applies to open gym time since Partners is open during those hours.
  4. The only classes where weights may be dropped are the 6am and 7am classes Monday to Friday.
  5. For the time being, Yosh is going to try to maintain the Olympic Class on Wednesday night. If it becomes untenable then we’ll move that to a new time.
  6. We will also continue to keep the music at a respectable level. We’ve found a volume range that won’t diminish the experience of your enjoyment of the wod nor cause discord with our neighbors.

 

As an aside, I was a member of a gym for two years that didn’t allow weight dropping.  While the first couple of weeks took some getting used to it wasn’t the end of the world and the community thrived and the wods were still very fun.

 

This community has grown tremendously in the last year and it continues to evolve and expand.  We are all in this together and I truly see this as a small bump in the road towards our final destination.

Brett
