Venetian Tower Fitness Center
Happily, many of
our residents are increasingly committed to fitness and well-being. This quest
for a healthier lifestyle is resulting in greater use of our Venetian Tower fitness center. The following are provided
as guidelines and suggestions on how to enhance your exercise experience. They are intended to make your workout safer,
to improve the overall appearance and neatness of the room and to foster consideration for others. 1.
The 2 ½ pound black, horseshoe-shaped weights should be returned to the corner of the room behind the
Paramount Lat Pull machine after they are used. This will prevent someone from tripping over these weights, will
eliminate people “hunting” for them and will make the room more presentable.
2. If you are “banging”
or “clanging” the weight stacks of the Paramount machines during or at the end of your workout, you are using
too much weight. This problem tends to be localized to men. Dropping these weights in this matter can cause injury and
can result in breakage. In general, proper form is far more important than using heavy weights.
“wipes,” beverage bottles and the like should be disposed of properly in the hamper and trash receptacle, as appropriate.
Nothing makes the room look worse than used towels or wipes strewn about.
4. Please return
balls, mats, steps, bands, etc. where they belong – on the racks where you should have found them.
The floor fan by the door to the pool area should remain close to the wall. Some people are moving it out away from
the wall, both blocking the entry to that door and potentially causing a hazardous situation.
6. As a
reminder, the TV volume should be at 25% of its maximum when others are present. For the TV next to the treadmills,
the maximum volume is 100 and therefore the volume when others are present should be at about 25. I admit that it is
virtually inaudible at that level, but having it set between 30 and 35 should be sufficient.
not in use, the white remote to the TV by the treadmills should be returned to the Velcro holder on the TV. This avoids
others having to “hunt” around for the remote.
I’m sure you’ll agree that we will all benefit from adherence to the above.
