DRESS CODE

  1. We strictly enforce our dress code to prevent disease transmission. Anyone not following the dress code will be asked to put on proper attire or leave the facilities.
  2. Only unaltered t-shirts and sleeveless shirts which cover the entire stomach, chest and back (NO bra tops) are allowed.  Altered shirts contribute to excessive sweat & moisture which can damage equipment.    
  3. Sweats, modest shorts and similar items are considered appropriate attire.  Modest dress prevents anyone from being offended by what others are wearing (or not wearing)  
  4. Athletic shoes must be worn at all times.  Proper athletic shoes protect feet and protect floors. Sandals, flip flops, crocs, boots, black-soled shoes, jeans, and any pants with buttons or hardware (zippers/rivets) and skirts are prohibited.  
  5. No earrings larger than a quarter may be worn and necklaces must remain underneath your shirt.  Small jewelry prevents injury (large hoops and chains can get caught on handles etc.) and buttons/rivets can damage equipment and are thus prohibited.
