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/sauna is STRICTLY FOR PERMANENT RESIDENTS USE ONLY and cannot be used by friends, relatives, short term stays and 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.

  • Ensure lights and air-conditioning is turned off when leaving

  • The gym provides free hotspot WiFi.

  • Wear headphones if you wish to listen to music.

  • Keep conversations quiet as the noise will travel.
