Group X Guidelines

To help ensure your safe use and enjoyment of our facility and programs, we provide the following list of guidelines for everyone to follow. Please contact our staff if you have any questions.

  • Please allow the previous class to exit before entering the classroom.
  • Please be on time. Due to the importance of a sufficient warm-up, late participants may be denied entry to class at the instructor's discretion.
  • Participants are encouraged to stay for the entire group exercise class to ensure the proper cool-down.
  • All classes are available on a first-come, first-served basis. 
  • Fresh workout clothes are strongly recommended. Shirts must be worn at all times.
  • Athletic shoes must be worn at all times unless recommended otherwise by instructors for classes such as yoga. Heels, boots and street shoes are not permitted in the group fitness rooms.
