Access Control

I watch the video logs each day to see who is entering the gym. Do not bring a non-member into this gym to work out without prior permission from me. Bringing a non-member into this gym without prior consent to work out, will result in an immediate termination of your membership with no refund and a $50.00 fine imposed on the account used for monthly membership billing.

Opening Doors

For the safety and security of everyone in this gym, never open the doors for anyone, even if they have a keyfob with them. If their keyfob is not working, there is probably a valid reason.

Freezing your Account

If you need to freeze your account, you must notify me by the 26th of any month so that I can put it in the billing system. The Freeze is effective for a calendar month, up to three months a year. Your account will automatically go active after the third month, unless you notify me sooner.

Terminating your Account

A 30 day written notice is required to terminate your membership. However, as a courtesy, if you notify me by the 26th of any month, it can be terminated at the end of the current month. If you let me know after the 26th, your termination will be effective at the end of the following month. There are no exceptions to this rule. PHONES CALLS ARE NOT AN ACCEPTABLE MEANS OF TERMINATING for your protection and mine.

Your Access Key Fob

Please DO NOT write on or mark the keyfob(s) in any way. If you must end your membership, you must return your keyfob(s) to me on the last day of the month you are terminating in. You can slide under my office door if I am not here. A $20.00 fee is charged for each keybob that is not returned or returned in an unusable condition.

Billing Declines

If your account is declined for any reason, a $20.00 NSF/Late Fee may be applied to your account, although I do not do so unless you disappear on me. If you have any changes to the credit card or atm card that you use for your payments, please let me know by the 26th, so you can avoid any extra charges. All delinquent unpaid accounts are turned over to Golden State Collections LLC, Lathrop.

Free Weights

Please rack your weights when you are finished with them.  Your fellow members and I will appreciate your cooperation.  Some individuals can not lift the heavier plates off the equipment.

Cleaning Equipment

I do my best to keep the gym clean.  At the front of the gym is the sanitizing center.  The spray bottles are filled with Mark 11 spray, which kills staph and mrsa.  Your fellow members will appreciate it if you wipe down your hand holds and seat/backrest after you are finished using the equipment.
