Unless you are doing some serious training elsewhere, make the commitment to train consistently. To get better you need to train often, not every now and then. Turning up is often the hardest part, remember there will always be options to suit your abilities and modify anything if needed.
BE ON TIME!
Get to training early, if you're not early - you're LATE! Say hi, get your head around the workout, MOBILISE and think about a general warm up. Amongst other things, lateness distracts you and others from the brief.
PENALTIES APPLY FOR LATENESS!
LEAVE COACHING TO THE COACHES!
We love encouragement before during and after the workout but recognise the difference between encouragement and coaching. People have different cues and instructions for different reasons and what applies to one person may not apply to the next. Worry about your own technique and performance and if you see something or you are unsure,
grab one of the trainers.
LEAVE YOUR EGO AT THE DOOR!
Accidents and injuries can happen and are usually a result of impatience. Slow down!
Ask questions and ask for help. Practice safe habits. If you are told to: "Take weight off the bar" or "Work with (insert scaling options here)" Then it's more than likely your ego is getting the better of you and it's not the way to improve. LISTEN AND APPLY!
PUT STUFF AWAY AND RESPECT THE EQUIPMENT!
Clean up after yourself and put equipment away after each workout. Treat the equipment with respect, use common sense. Wait until everyone has finished before cleaning sweat, chalk, dirt, handprints and whatever else you have left behind.
INTRODUCE YOURSELF TO NEW CROSSFITTERS!
Get to know people, welcome and encourage anyone who is new. Remember when you were new. Help a newbie feel relaxed and comfortable and treat anyone the way you wish to be treated.
APPLY ALL OF THE ABOVE PRACTICES, YOUR FITNESS DEPENDS ON IT
