So I'm joining a box!

I've finally found a box that works for my goals and schedule. Very excited! Any tips on what NOT to do so I'm not "that guy"? Any tips on what to do, to be received well? Thanks!

Introduce yourself to other people.
Don't spill chalk, it gets between the joins in the rubber flooring and is difficult to clean.
Make your coaches aware of your abilities and experiences so that they can adjust as necessary.

Re: So I'm joining a box!

If it is a busy box make sure you scale when in doubt. Don't get caught up in the hype. Better to only be a little sore and do more WODs a week then be very sore and only do a couple.

Easy does it!
