Boy Scout Motto
So, my household is recovering from the flu from hell and I thought it would be a good time to bring up a motto that we should strive to live by at the gym. "Leave it better than you found it."
I have noticed we have gotten a little bit lazy on cleaning up after ourselves. We have some amazing cleaners at the gym who take pride in their work but nothing is more frustrating than spending an hour on the dumbbell area to have dumbbells strewn about the area the next day. Or to take a couple of hours to clean the floors to find chalk hieroglyphics on the ground or remnants of these... Or coming in after a day on the pull-up bars to see that some members were doing their greatest impression of Lebron James pre-game chalk throw.
Sickness spreads and it is sometimes impossible to prevent but if you are sick or your kids are sick, let's try and stay home until we know they aren't contagious anymore. By cleaning up after ourselves, we can better prevent the spread of sickness. Nobody likes to be sick. Let's wipe down our bars, put equipment back where we got it and just be more aware of our surroundings before we leave each day.
