If you are more than five minutes late, the piece of equipment will be available to another member. You may also use the cardio equipment for up to 30min on a first-come first-serve basis, as long as it is not one of the advance cardio pieces that is already booked (you can check with a trainer to ensure it is not booked).

  10. Dropping of weights is dangerous to you, to those exercising around you, and to the facility. Use a manageable weight or ask for a spotter. Abuse of equipment may result in the loss of Zone privileges. The staff in the Walker Complex will intervene if a guest is deemed to be exercising/behaving in a manner which could be hazardous to themselves or others.
  11. Use of Electronic Devices: Cell phone use is not permitted in The Zone. Photography and videography is not permitted in The Zone due to privacy.
