The Little Things
Here are some little amenities and services you may not know we have.
Loaner Bike Lock and Bike Pump: Got all the way to the gym and forgot your lock? We’ve got a Kryptonite U Lock at the gym you can use to keep your wheels safe. This is not a substitute for bringing your lock consistently! Also if you’ve got a flat tire there is a pump by the roll-up gate.
Hair Ties: Need to tame your locks? There are free hair ties for members available at the front desk. We got you!
Stickers: Rep CFSBK! Grab a free sticker or two at the front desk. Tom S has been notoriously tagging ski reports around the country with the old skull and bones.
Tape: Need to wrap your thumbs for snatching or wrists for everything? There is always athletic tape at the front desk. Ask a coach regarding how and why to use it if you’re curious.
Espresso: There is a Nespresso machine on the kitchenette in 597. Nespresso pods are $1 each, there is a small red bucket to throw a buck in. Caffeine is an ergogenic aid!
Shower stuff: There is soap, shampoo and conditioner available in the showers as well as body lotion on the counter. We’ve also got a hair driers and towels. <GYM PSA> The towels are for shower use only, please do not bring them onto the gym floor. Also no human being needs more than two towels AT MOST.
Things for your Kids: At the couch area in the front there are Legos, cards, Jenga, coloring books and paper, crayons, markers and educational kids books about art, history and science. They’ll probably just be on their ipads but.. we’re just saying they’re there.
Finally, not an amenity but did you know we post the following day’s workout as the first comment on rest days? #knowledgeispower
