Responsibilities of the Requester

By reserving the group exercise room, each requester assumes the responsibility of returning and maintaining the room to its proper organized condition. All use of any exercise equipment or accessories including mats and blocks, must be stored as indicated by the signage posted  throughout the room.

See staff to use audio equipment. If the audio equipment and floor fans are used, the fans and stereo should be powered off at the designated ending time of the reservation. Failure to maintain the room, or going over time, will result in a warning. Multiple violations may result in losing the privilege of reserving space for three months. Each requester will assume full responsibility for any damage to mirrors, exercise equipment, or audio equipment sustained during the time the room is reserved or occupied by the group.
