When you come to Combat Mindset, we expect you to come with a few basic etiquette rules in mind. They’re simple, mandatory, and reinforce the philosophy behind what we do:
Be early. If you’re on time – you’re late. Give yourself enough time to check in, change clothes, and warm-up before your class starts. That probably means showing up at least 10 minutes before class.
Check your ego at the door. At our studio, we take pride in having some of the toughest students around, but somewhere… a high school kid is warming up with your workout!
Clean up. Put away your stuff. Clean up your sweat. Pick up your used tape, pens, notebooks, scrap papers, band-aids, water bottles and sweaty clothes. Put away all the equipment you used back where it belongs.
Respect our equipment. Don’t throw our stuff around.
Respect the headphones. Sure, we’ve been known to turn our sounds way up, but still people may want to listen to their own tunes while doing their own thing. People who do this, are basically putting up a ‘do not disturb’ sign so, save the pickup lines for later.
Respect where you are. Absolutely no phone calls, texting, emailing, vibering – or anything else on a phone while in our studio. It’s a waste of your time – and ours.
Respect the environment. Speaking of that, absolutely no hitting on women allowed inside the studio, in the parking lot, or anywhere within a 2-mile radius. Any guy caught trying to pick a chick up, will be banned from the studio and have his membership suspended for 3 months.
Respect our music. Unless you’ve been featured on ESPN, UFC or WWE – do not ever touch our music! Don’t turn it up, don’t turn it down, don’t plug in your own tunes in our system.
Bring things to our attention. If you notice that equipment is broken, lights are out or there’s no toilet paper, bring it to our attention so we can do something about it.
Try hard. Effort earns respect. Work hard. Don’t drag people down with a bad attitude. Be optimistic, have fun and push yourself and those around you to do better.
Go hard or go home. The only way to get better is to increase your performance. Always strive to go a little harder. Never say, “I can’t.” When you want something you’ve never had, you have to do something you’ve never done. Push your limits.
Bring a towel. You always need a towel with you while you’re training to wipe down equipment (and yourself). “Where’s your towel? Oh, it’s back at your house? Then that’s where you should be too.”
Don’t cheat. No one really cares what you do but everyone cares if you lie or cheat. Be honest with everyone else, and be honest with yourself. If someone calls you out for doing something wrong, listen to them. The person standing around watching you work out has a much better perspective on what you’re doing than you do.
Learn how to count. If you lose count, the next number is always 1. If you know you have trouble keeping count, ask someone to count for you.
Come to class. For newbies, make sure you’re staying consistent. For others, don’t start thinking that it’s okay to do your own thing whenever you want to. We have class to improve on the basics and work on the extras. Show up and put in the work.
Take ownership. Be responsible and respectful and take pride in our studio. Don’t let others get away with things that are bad for them or bad for our brand. Remind people to take their clothes with them and pick up their water bottles. If you see someone doing something that you’re pretty sure will hurt them, tell them to cut it out. We don’t care who it is! Safety first!
Greet new clients. We all were the “new guy” or “new gal” at one point. Take the time to greet the newbies. After all, these are the people that you are going to shed blood, sweat and tears (maybe) with. Our studio can be very intimidating, especially when watching some of our clients go at it, so a warm and friendly introduction can really settle some nerves.
