Dogs, Kids, & Babies @ HRCF

From the get go Hudson River CrossFit has always been about community.We pride ourselves on being dog, kid, and baby friendly. We will continue to be dog, kid, and baby friendly, but in order to provide the best class experience to all our members we need to put a couple policies in place.

Please remember that a lot of members use their hour at Hudson River CrossFit to escape their own dogs, kids, and babies. A barking dog or crying child not only makes it difficult for the coach to coach class, but also for the athlete to learn, perform, and enjoy their time at the gym.

That said I ask that you help keep HRCF amazing by taking note of the following:

HRCF Kids Policy:

  • No kids are allowed on the gym floor during class or open gym time

  • Kids need to be able to sit in the lounge area unattended, which means they are not a distraction to others, and are not a danger to themselves or others

  • Kids should not be in the way of group class (i.e., when a class is running in and out of the gym)

  • The Front Desk and Coaching staff is not there to babysit your kids

  • Please be mindful of your stroller (strollers are not allowed on the gym floor and must be out of the way of classes)

  • We have one of the most generous open gym policies of any CrossFit gym in the NYC Metro area, if you’re ever in a situation where you need to workout but need to frequently attend to a dog or child, we ask that you do so during open gym as to not disrupt group class

  • Coaches and staff may politely ask you to leave class if your child is disrupting the class experience

HRCF Dogs Policy:

  • Dogs that bark, whine, jump, or bite are not allowed at the gym.

  • Dogs must be leashed and anchored to kettlebell during class time

  • The Front Desk and Coaching staff are not dog sitters

  • Dogs are not allowed on the gym floor during class time

  • We have one of the most generous open gym policies of any CrossFit gym in the NYC Metro area, if you’re ever in a situation where you need to workout but need to frequently attend to a dog or child, we ask that you do so during open gym as to not disrupt group class

  • We reserve the right to ask you to remove a disruptive dog

Thank you so much for your help,
John
