We love that our gym is a family place and that our athletes bring their kids while they are working out. Showing children the value of fitness is so important and what better way is there to teach this than by doing – we all know they love to emulate mom & dad.
Kids Room Rules for Kids & Parents
The kids room is unsupervised so kids must be able to sit quietly and be self-entertained without the need for parent intervention for the entire hour. We have books, puzzles and toys in the kids room. However, feel free to bring handheld gaming systems or tablets, or other quiet activities for your kids.
CHILDREN ON THE GYM FLOOR
Children are NEVER allowed to play on gym equipment before, during or after a workout. Rowers, ropes, rings, jump ropes, pull up bars etc. are all off limits to kids. If possible please use the back for entering and exiting the gym if you have kids with you.
FOOD & DRINKS
No food is allowed in the kids room. We do not know all the allergies and medical issues of other members kids so please no food in the kids room. It is also a sanitary issue that we keep the kids room clean. If they need a snack, please get it in them before they head in the kids room. Only drinks in “no-spill” containers will be allowed in the kids room.
It is your responsibility to see that your child has cleaned up after themselves. We have some awesome members that will often help corral the kids, but it is not their responsibility to clean up the room. If you bring your child to the kids room please make sure it is cleaned up afterwards.
Children are expected to behave appropriately according to their age group. If a child is disrespectful, abusive to another child or destructive in any way it will be addressed both with the child and the parent. This is not being meant as a disrespect but more of a reminder to the children and the parents that proper behavior will be enforced.
For the safety of everyone involved, parents are asked not to bring sick children to the Kids Room.
Lastly, some kids have too much energy to be confined to one room. Some like to climb walls, or furniture, or people. Some need to work on their sharing and cooperation skills. Some can turn a crayon into a lethal weapon. We love ALL kids, but if your kid happens to be one of these, you’ll probably need to find somewhere else to take them while you workout. You know your kid better than we do; just use your best judgment. Safety first!
