How the Y Core Values pertain to your use of the Wellness Center, more specifically the Free Weight Room at the Watertown Area YMCA.
- Please respect other members' time by not loitering on or hogging a machine or piece of equipment. Let other members "work in" with you.
- Be respectful of your current fitness level and lift weight accordingly. Only lift weight you can properly handle.
- Respect the germs by acknowledging their influence and need to be removed. Use the disinfectant spray on all equipment you use.
-Be responsible enough to put your weights away after you're done using them.
-Be responsible enough to use the machines and equipment as they are intended to be used.
-Be responsible enough to not drop any weights or abuse any piece of equipment.
-Be alert and aware of your surroundings - care about your personal safety and that of other lifters.
-Be engaged with other members when using the free weight room – positive relational connection and interaction help to improve your mood, which studies have proved will have a positive impact on your workout.
-Care about proper form and weight load for your current fitness level.
-Be honest with yourself about your effort.
-Always strive to do YOUR best - no one else's.
-Evaluate your fitness level often and lift accordingly.
-Be honest with staff about your use of equipment - are you the right age, have you gone through the right orientations?
-Be honest with members about your need for a piece of equipment - share your sets and skills with others.
-If you see someone needing help or struggling with a lift, offer honest aid and support.
We are not in competition with one another. The better everyone gets at lifting, the better we get as a Y and the stronger and healthier our community becomes. We all win!
