CLEANLINESS IS KEY
Always wear clean clothes and deodorant while working out. Excessive body order affects others workouts and may result in us asking you to leave.
Clean, closed-top sneakers or athletic shoes are required. No dress shoes, work boots, or sandals are allowed on the gym floor. Dress shoes and boots have a tendency to destroy our floors and equipment, and sandals can be extremely dangerous. During the winter months, we require a change of shoes upon entering the gym. We do everything we can to keep the gym clean for our members, and we need your help to ensure no salt, sand, or snow goes beyond our foyer. If you have been walking around in mud and dirt during the spring or summer months, please clean your shoes before entering the gym. Continued failure to do so will be result in suspension or termination of membership.
Be sure to clean up after yourself wherever you are in the facility. Machines, cardio equipment, benches, barbells, etc must be wiped down using the provided gym wipes, all equipment must be put away in its proper spot, and all personal items must be kept on person. If you are not cleaning up after yourself, you may be approached by a staff member or volunteer and asked to clean your area. If you are approached multiple times regarding your cleanliness, we may ask you to leave the facility.
We do everything we can to keep our bathrooms clean, however we do need your help to make sure all members have a good experience. If you drop paper towels, toilet paper or trash on the floor, please pick it up and throw it away. If the toilet is clogged, please inform a staff member immediately. If you use the last of the paper towels, toilet paper, or soap, or the trash is overflowing, please inform a staff member immediately. We do not allow any items to be stored at the gym overnight. If anything is left in the facility for more than two days, it will either be donated or thrown out.
Our gym is thoroughly cleaned each night after closing. Any personal items left overnight will be discarded.
We offer parking in front of the gym and also directly behind the gym in our back lot. If parking in the front, please be sure to park completely in one spot, or if parking along the road park as close to the car next you as possible. If the front lot is full, please make your way to the back of the building. DO NOT BLOCK OUR NEIGHBORS IN. There is plenty of parking, so street parking is not necessary.
If parking in the back lot, please park as close to the car next to you as possible. There is a separate back entrance under the middle overhang that will bring you down a hallway to the foyer of the gym. DO NOT ENTER into the Emergency Exits or the Strongman overhead door.
Any member who incurs an injury or becomes dizzy/ill while in the facility should immediately contact a JPF staff member for assistance.

It is important that JPF staff is notified of any cases of injury or illness so that proper procedures are followed.
CARDIO EQUIPMENT USAGE
Cardio equipment is first come, first serve. We ask that you please limit your use to 30 minutes if other members are waiting. Always wipe down cardio equipment after use including the handles, screens, and decks if covered in sweat. Do not leave cardio equipment running while not in use.

Lower the elevation completely and slow down the treadmill before pressing "Stop".

INCLEMENT WEATHER & HOLIDAYS
JPF staff make every effort to remain open during inclement weather. There may be times, however, that we decide to close the facility due to weather conditions. If we are closed, please respect our decision and do not come to the gym. We need the lot empty during winter closings in order to clear the lot of snow and ice.
We always update our Facebook page with any closings or schedule changes due to holidays. If you are unsure if we are open, please feel free to give us a call at 860-412-9047.
We understand that many people use their cellphones for music and entertainment while working out, as well as to take photos of them, their workouts, or their workout partners. We ask that you do not let the use of your cellphone hinder the workout of any other member. This includes sitting on machines and benches while not using them to use your phone, taking excessive photos and videos, or playing music/videos out loud. If your cellphone use affects the workout of another member, we may ask you to put your cellphone away for the remainder of your workout.
