The gym room is fitted out with equipment leased from Life Fitness.  Life Fitness is responsible for maintaining the equipment in good working order.

Do’s and Don’ts

Some of these are covered by the list of conditions of entry/exit to the gym below.  However, as a number of people have put considerable effort into getting this up and running, it’s particularly important to note the following points in the spirit of maintaining and contributing to harmony and fairness:

  • The Watertower gym is STRICTLY FOR RESIDENT USE ONLY and is not to be used by friends, relatives or guests visiting or staying with you.

  • Travel quietly when going to the gym as 4 units have bedrooms that back onto the walkway. So please be respectful by walking to and from the gym quietly.

  • Keep the external walkway door  closed when using the gym.

  • Carefully allow the soft return of the gym weight stack after each repetition on the weights machine so that the noise will not disturb residents in the adjoining apartment.

  • Wear headphones if you wish to listen to music.

  • Keep conversations quiet as the noise will travel.

 

Read and adhere to the other points in the Gym Conditions of Entry/Exit below and follow the placarded instructions on use of the sauna.
