Dear Valued Member,
EXCITING NEWS!! The governor announced that as a part of Phase II - fitness centers can reopen on Monday, June 1st. We are extremely happy for this positive news and looking forward to seeing everyone!
Our main objective as we reopen is to make sure you feel comfortable and confident in our safe setting. We take this very seriously and are taking all steps necessary to assure you of that. With that said, we cannot do this alone. This is a two-way street and we need your assistance by following recommended social distancing guidelines and by cleaning equipment when you are finished exercising.
NEW POLICIES & GUIDELINES: please note that these are subject to change based on new information or guidance from health officials.
With reopening, obviously the way we previously operated will change based on our new landscape. Many of these changes will take time to get used to, but will be for the better and will make the member experience a safer, healthier one. We will follow the Healthy at Work guidelines established by the governor. All, of these guidelines are achievable.
All staff will be required to complete a daily health screening as well as a temperature check prior to their work shift. When appropriate, staff will wear face masks and/ or gloves
Additional staff has been hired to assist with the daily cleaning of equipment, changing rooms, restrooms, common areas, etc.
During the closure –the entire club has undergone a deep, sanitizing clean (all cardio, strength equipment, free motion equipment, child care, restrooms, changing rooms, rafters, walls, HVAC flushed and filters changed, carpets cleaned, plus much more).
We will be operating on a reduced 33% capacity, so we ask that you limit your workout to one hour or less. If need be, scheduled workout times may be implemented to adhere to these guidelines.
Cardio machines have been spaced out- a schedule for using every other machine will be put into place (unfortunately the Cardio TV’s will not be available every day).
Circuit machines have been spaced out as much as possible - please use every other machine when someone is on an adjoining machine. NO sitting on machines.
Free weight floor has been spaced as much as possible, please follow social distancing guidelines and space yourself appropriately. Please use one piece of equipment at a time and NO sitting on equipment.
Wipe down all equipment with disinfectant after use. NO EXCEPTIONS. We have purchased additional spray bottles to make this an easy task.
Please bring your own water bottles, the water fountains will be out of use- ONLY the touchless bottle filling station will be available
Wash your hands frequently - this is the best prevention available to fight the virus. In addition, we have placed additional hand sanitizer dispensers throughout the club.
Some members especially those considered to be a part of the "vulnerable" population - may be more sensitive than others as they return. Please be aware of these differences and be respectful of these various degrees of concern.
Childcare will not be available until June 15th at the earliest.
While not mandatory, we encourage that masks be worn during your use of the club.
IF YOU ARE FEELING SICK, PLEASE STAY HOME!!!
In advance, we are asking that everyone please bear with us through this process. These are unchartered waters for all of us; any and all changes will be made in the best interest of the club and its members. We are excited to see you all soon!
