Health Policy

If you have shingles, the flu, a cold or any other contagious or debilitating illness, please do not train in the Fitness Center. Using the Fitness Center with a contagious illness puts you and all other members at risk. Illness causes an individual’s system to become weaker and the likelihood for injury increases significantly when training under these conditions.

Furthermore, given the nature of physical training, the transmission of contagious diseases occurs quite readily. Wipes of disinfectant and paper towels are available in the Fitness Center and group fitness rooms for cleaning perspiration from the pads, benches, and machines. Please be courteous of fellow Fitness Center members and use the supplies provided in the areas that you use.


Safety Policy

Contact your health care provider prior to using the facility for advice on types of exercises that are appropriate for you. Also contact your health care provider for advice on when to return to exercise following any injury or illness. Start out slowly and increase workout time and intensity gradually. Make sure to include a proper warm-up and cool-down into your workout routine.


Equipment

Members are encouraged to limit cardio equipment exercise time to 30 minutes when the facility is crowded and others are waiting.
Please return all equipment to its proper place after using.
Please do not drop or slam weights.
Please clean equipment after use.
All weight lifters must use a spotter for safety reasons. If you do not have a lifting partner, ask a Fitness Center staff member to assist you.


Lost and Found

The Miller Center will not be responsible for items lost, stolen or damaged in or at the center. Members are advised to leave valuables at home or locked in your car.
Items will be kept for 2 weeks and then donated or discarded.


Personal Belongings

Please store coats and belongings in proper areas (locker rooms), as bags are not allowed in the fitness areas. Also, do not leave personal property in the facility unattended. Property left unattended will be confiscated.

Injuries

Any member who incurs an injury or becomes dizzy/ill while using the center should immediately contact a Fitness Center staff person for assistance. A first aid kit is kept at the front desk for minor injuries. In cases requiring more extensive first aid, Fitness Center staff will contact the appropriate persons for assistance. It is important that Fitness Center staff be notified of any cases of injury or illness so that proper procedures can be initiated. Athletic tape may only be used for minor injuries.
