Keeping your safety at heart

Keeping your safety at heart
We love our members and have been so excited to welcome you back to our fitness centers! Your exercise experience may be a little different right now, but as part of our thoughtful phased reopening approach, we’ve implemented the following workout safety measures while keeping your health and safety at heart.
  • Requiring face masks to be worn
    Our team members are required to wear face coverings, and we ask you to as well, in all areas of our facility.
  • Practicing proper social distancing
    You’ll likely notice increased spacing between equipment and limited occupancy within certain work out areas to allow for appropriate social distancing. Look for extra signs to guide and remind you.
  • Performing deep cleanings
    We’re committed to continuous frequently scheduled disinfections of high touch surfaces throughout our facility.
  • Making self-cleaning stations available
    Readily available sanitizing wipes will be offered to wipe down equipment before and after use. We’ll also have hand sanitizer for you well within reach.
  • Limiting workout lengths for members
    To ensure all our members get the opportunity to exercise, we’re limiting all workouts to 60 minutes per member.
  • Remaining contactless with each other and members
    We’re strongly encouraging our team and fitness center members to refrain from personal contact with others.
  • Performing temperature screenings at the entrance
    Prior to entering our fitness centers, we’ll be checking temperatures of all our members and staff. Those with fever, symptoms or recent contact with any COVID-19 patients will not be granted entry.

Our fitness center members who are over the age of 65, have chronic medical conditions, or may be more at risk for COVID-19 need to take extra precaution and refrain from the use of our fitness centers during this time.

As we navigate through our phased reopening of both fitness center locations, we appreciate your help and understanding as we get through this together!
