AAPES POLICIES

CLASS POLICIES

Thanks for helping us create a welcoming, safe space where everyone can train! Our goal is to ensure an enjoyable experience for everyone. We appreciate your understanding, mindfulness, and attention to these policies:
  • Please treat fellow students, instructors and members with respect – they are your friends and we ask everyone to follow the same policies.
  • Please avoid excessive use of your phone in class. Whilst we encourage you to film your progress, be mindful of other students in the class who may not want to be filmed (always ask permission from anyone in your videos before uploading your clips to social media) and don’t film while your instructor is instructing. 
  • Please ensure that appropriate footwear is worn at all times.
  • Please keep personal belongings in designated member storage areas.  We have recycling and waste bins conveniently placed around our facility, so please place cups and other garbage in the appropriate bin. When you are done using any gym equipment please return them to their “home.”
  • Place weights back in their proper place once done.  Not everyone can lift heavier weights and they can be a trip hazard!
  • If you’re bringing food into the gym, please do not eat it on the floor. Make sure all drink containers can be closed with a lid to prevent spillage.
  • Please do not drop or throw weights and please don’t be forceful with the equipment. If you need a hand moving equipment around, feel free to ask an instructor or another student for help.
  • Out of respect to your instructor and fellow students, please arrive to all scheduled classes on time. You must arrive 10 minutes prior to the start of class to ensure you’re logged in and ready to go.
  • Our instructors put a lot of thought and effort into our class curriculum, and our students come to class because they want to learn. If you’re in class, you must be participating actively. All instructors have the discretion to remove any students found to be not paying attention, or using equipment that is not the subject of class. 
  • We strive to create a supportive community within our gym and studio. We want your workout experience to be safe, effective and fun. Our staff and instructors/trainers are here to support and motivate you to reach and exceed your goals. We want you to get the most out of your visit, please let us know if there is anything we can do to better serve you!
