  • The use of safety stop clips is strongly encouraged while using treadmills.
  • Towels must be placed between the equipment pads and the person using equipment if/when a person is not wearing full-backed shirts or pants.
  • Patrons should use extreme caution when lifting weights to avoid potential injury to themselves or others. Top loading additional weights onto weight stack machines is unsafe and is prohibited.
  • Patrons are encouraged to ask fitness staff for help adjusting equipment, for a spot or for general questions.
  • Spring collars should be used with all bars in free weight lifting.
  • Weight-lifting hand chalk is not permitted in the Fitness Center.
  • Patrons must sign-up at the fitness desk when using any piece of cardiovascular equipment. Maximum sign-up time is 30 minutes.

  • Machines and mats should be wiped down after use. Cleaning supplies are available on the fitness floor and should be returned to bins after use.
