CHILDREN ON THE GYM FLOOR
Children are NEVER allowed to play on gym equipment before or during a workout. Rowers, ropes, rings, jump ropes, etc. are all off limits to kids unless we have a signed CrossFit Kids waiver on file. It is simply a safety thing.
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, running out on the gym floor, etc. it is your responsibility to put down the barbell and take care of your child. We have an amazing staff that 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 CrossFit Tucker. 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.
Lastly, some kids have too much energy to be confined to one room. Some like to climb walls, or furniture, or people. Some need to work on their sharing and cooperation skills. Some can turn a crayon into a lethal weapon. We love ALL kids, but if your kid happens to be one of these, you’ll probably need to find somewhere else to take them while you workout. OR…sign them up for CrossFit Kids— we can help them burn that energy off!!! You know your kid better than we do; just use your best judgment.
We love you all and all your kids but we want safety first. We want to welcome everyone to our CrossFit Tucker Family 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.
