Box Etiquette

Be On Time

We cover a lot in class & utilize every minute. If you are late and we are still warming up, please assimilate into class by mimicking what you see in the class.

Check Your Ego at the Door

There’s always people lift more than you & finish workouts faster than you. Focus on yourself. We only care how well you move and how you scaled the workout properly. Coaches are here to help you improve safely and efficiently and long in the future.

Please Respect Our Coaches

Please pay attention and stop talking when the Coach is explaining the workout and the movements. While you may have heard the instruction for a deadlift one thousand times, it may be the first time for the person standing next to you. Besides you may just learn something new and it could be what separates you from your next PR!

Please Ask First

Additional practicing prior to or after class must always be cleared with the coach on duty and should not interfere with the ongoing class. For more information about this, please see our “how to use open gym at X Ray” on our website.

Please Check in / Sign Up for Class

Sign up as far in advance as possible so our coaches can prepare class ahead for you to get the best experience from the class.

Please Clean Up Your Equipment after use

We clean up equipment after everyone has finished the workout. In addition to equipment, it’s possible that in your CrossFit career you may sweat a lot or bleed, please use disinfectant to wipe them down.

Please Treat Empty Bars & Dumbbells Like They Were Your Baby

Never ever drop an empty barbell or loaded with small plates or Dumbbells.

No Ghost Riding the Barbells - Ever

You know what’s not cool? When you barbell drops to the floor and bounces into someone else’s shin injuring them for weeks.

Check Your Surroundings & Stick to Your Equipment

If you have already set up your equipment & space, don’t change up and use someone else’s during the workout.

Don’t Break Down Your Equipment Until Everyone Has Finished the Workout

At X Ray, no one breaks down their equipment until everyone has finished the workout. This is a common courtesy. You can cheer on others, grab a foam roller, or just sit and enjoy the down time, but don’t touch your equipment.

Chalk Usage

Chalk stays in the chalk bucket. The fact of the matter is that a little dusting chalk on your hands is all you need.

Come Prepared for Class

The coaches’ commitment to you is that we will come energetic and prepared for the day’s class. We will provide a class format that is professional, organized, and well-coached. We ask that you, our athlete, come prepared for class. Learn the workout, look up past Benchmarks and 1 rep maxes when relevant, and have any personal equipment prepared and ready to go. And, take detailed notes on your workouts so it fuels your preparation for next time.

Give Your 100% & Be Positive

Work hard and be optimistic. Every athlete pushes themselves in different ways on the term of respecting others. You can scream, cuss, cry, go to your happy place, bleed, or even rest… just don’t quit and respect others. Always be honest with your scores. This is also what CrossFit is all about. Cheering, Clapping, Encouragement are always welcome here.
