Kids Room Rules
The kids room is an unsupervised environment in which kids must be able to sit quietly and be self-entertained without the need for parent intervention for the entire hour. Feel free to bring books, washable crayons/markers, homework, puzzles, handheld gaming systems or tablets (with headphones), or other quiet activities for your kids. The TV is there for DVD’s as well. We understand that smaller children may get uncomfortable if they cannot see their parents. At the Trainer’s discretion, s(he) may designate an area for your little ones to sit so they may see you while you work out. This is 100% at the Trainer’s discretion and dependent on the class size, activity, and your child’s ability to stay in one place. We will fully support any Trainer’s decision to require a child remain in the Kids Room.
CHILDREN ON THE GYM FLOOR
Children are NEVER allowed to play on gym equipment before or during a workout. Treadmill, spin bike, dumbbells, barbells, bosu balls, stability balls, medicine balls etc. are all off limits to kids. We need to ensure the safety of all kids whilst in the gym.
FOOD & DRINKS
Snacks and drinks are allowed in the kids room. However, please bring mess free appropriate snacks (no goldfish, bear paws etc.) We are also a peanut-free environment. Only drinks in “no-spill” containers will be allowed.
It is your responsibility to see that your child has cleaned up after themselves. f you bring your child to the class please make sure the kids room 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. We still love you regardless.
If your child is being very loud or disruptive during a workout it is YOUR responsibility to take care of whatever the issue is. We understand kids will be kids, but if your child is constantly screaming, getting out of the kids room, etc. it is your responsibility to stop mid exercise and take care of your child. It is possible that the trainer will help in some situations, but their responsibility is training and the safety of the members working out. This is especially true when we are teaching movements. If you are having a hard time hearing because your child is being loud it probably means everyone else is having a hard time hearing too. Please take the time and take care of your child, doing so in a way that is not equally disruptive.
For the safety of everyone involved, parents are asked not to bring sick children to class. The following standards will be enforced to ensure that all children and staff are protected from communicable diseases.
Children with the following symptoms will NOT be allowed in the kids room:
• Productive cough
• Unidentified rash
• Fever any grade
• Pink eye
• Bad cold
• Reddened sore throat
Children must be symptom free for 24 hours after symptoms cease. If your child does not attend school due to an illness, they should not be brought with you to the gym. We want to welcome everyone to our Personal Training Studio and want to have some ground rules to make sure that every time anyone comes it is an enjoyable experience no matter who they are.
