Safety Protocols

Thank you so much for your support as we have weathered the COVID-19 storm. While we are eagerly awaiting guidelines from state and local officials on when it will be safe and appropriate to reopen (Health Clubs are part of Phase 3), we are stocking our club with hospital–grade disinfecting sprays, wipes, and equipment.

While every member of our team will be working to keep our clubs clean and sanitary, we need your support as well in creating a safe space. We have made some updates to our Club Rules and Etiquette.

Club Policy Update

We are committed to ensuring the highest safety standards for our members and our team to return to a clean and safe environment. In doing so, we need your help. Below are a few additions to our Club Rules and Etiquette. Please follow the below guidelines when you visit the club.

ONLINE RESERVATIONS

In order to make sure we do not go over our club capacity during Phase 3, we need all members to sign up for a reservation to work out. All workout sessions will be one hour and thirty minutes in length and members will be expected to adhere to this time limit. You will not be able to show up at the club for a workout without a reservation. You will be allowed to sign up for either an open gym workout which includes the cardio and weight room or a Group Exercise class. Please arrive ten minutes prior to your workout to give yourself time for the check in procedure. You will be able to sign up for your workout one day ahead. We ask that you only schedule yourself in for one workout a day so that all members can have a chance to enjoy the club. We also ask that if you can't make it in, you let us know so that someone else can take your spot.

STAY HOME IF YOU ARE SICK 

Studies suggest that COVID-19 may be spread by people who are asymptomatic. Please do not come to the club if you have a fever, a cough, shortness of breath, or even just feel run down. Please don't take a chance - stay home until you feel better. We will be taking no-touch temperature readings for staff and members as they enter the building. Do not use the club if you have had contact with a person who has or is suspected of having COVID-19.

MASK - FACE COVERING

You must wear a mask when entering the club, in common spaces, and any place where appropriate physical distancing cannot be maintained. You must agree to comply with all local regulations related to wearing a mask while exercising indoors (we will know once we receive guidelines from the State.)

PHYSICAL DISTANCING

Please keep 6 feet between yourself and other members or staff while in the clubs. We have labeled the Group Exercise studios with floor stickers to distance participants 8-10 feet apart while working out. Studio 1 can now hold 18 participants and Studio 2 (The Haven) can now hold 10 participants. The Loft Cycle studio has signs on bikes that cannot be used to enforce our physical distancing as well as machines on the cardio deck. Weight room floor equipment has been space appropriately and signs have been hung to remind members about distancing. Please do not move any weight benches or equipment from their place.

DISINFECTING EQUIPMENT

Upon entering you will be required to sanitize your hands. While working out, you will be required to disinfect all equipment before and after use with spray disinfectant in the provided bottles. You will notice more sanitation stations throughout the club to make this convenient for our members.

Cleaning & Sanitization Protocols

Upon reopening, the club will close mid-day for staff to disinfect high touch surfaces and equipment. You will see this time reserved for cleaning on the online reservation calendar. All disinfectant products are medical–grade and are shown effective in EPA listings related to COVID and other viruses. We have purchased a cordless fogger mister in order to disinfect large surfaces throughout the day and in the overnight hours when we are closed.  In addition, our "Clean Team" will spray all surfaces throughout the club on a nightly basis.

We ask that all members disinfect equipment before and after each use.  We have set up disinfectant stations in workout areas which will include wipes, purell, disinfectant spray, and paper towels. The CDC recommends using the sanitizing spray and paper towels over the wipes. Please use wipes sparingly as there is a national shortage and we only have a limited supply until manufacturers produce more to purchase.

All cleaning products have an EPA number. Below are the sanitizers that we are using including one that has a 1 minute kill time even when not wiped down. You can use the following link to obtain information about any cleaner that we or you may use at home!

Diversey Oxivir Tb Sanitizer - EPA Reg. #70627-56

 

Along with our staff, members will be asked to disinfect all group fitness equipment between classes. In order to make this happen, when classes come back to our schedule we will keep a minimum of 15-20 minutes in between to allow for sanitzation and drying times. All members will be required to sign up online for all group fitness classes. All fitness studios will be stocked with disinfectant stations for members to do their own cleaning as well.

We have placed hand sanitizer dispensers and bottles around the club. Members and staff are required to use sanitizer entering the club and throughout their time in the club. Upon completing a workout, it is recommended that you wash your hands with soap and water.

Additional Information

To ensure the safest possible environment for our members and staff, we will be limiting club hours upon initial reopening. In the beginning, our club hours will be Monday - Friday from 6am-8pm, Saturday 7am-7pm, and Sunday 10am-6pm.

We have been told that the earliest we can open is July 17th.

 

To date, we are still waiting to hear what the mandated State Guidelines will be for health clubs in Phase 3. We will update as soon as we know. We are preparing for a reduced overall capacity per hour. Therefore, we will be limiting the number of members in the club at any given time. All members will be required to sign up through the Member Portal for a workout - either Open Gym (cardio and weight machines) or Group Exercise when offered.

All workout sessions will be one hour and thirty minutes in length and members will be expected to adhere to this time limit. You will not be able to show up at the club for a workout without a reservation. Please arrive at least ten minutes prior to your workout to give yourself time for the check in procedure. You will be able to sign up for your workout the day ahead. We ask that you only schedule yourself in for one workout a day so that all members can have a chance to enjoy the club. We also ask that if you can't make it in, you let us know so that someone else can take your spot.

Please do not show up to the club without an appointment because we will not be able to allow you in. There is a steep fine for not following State Guidelines.

Upon our reopening, the locker room showers and sauna will NOT be available. The bathrooms and changing rooms in the locker room will be available.

We ask that you show up ready to exercise with as little as possible - a sweat towel and water. We will not be providing equipment to borrow such as  exercise mats but encourage you to bring your own. You are welcome to bring such things as your own TRX or basketball. We will not be providing towel service.

The Children's Center will remain closed until further notice. We are waiting to hear from State officials if and when this can happen. When the Children's Center resumes, there will be a capacity limit and members will have to reserve space online through our member portal for your child.

Personal Training will be available upon opening either in person, outdoors, or virtually.  We have been busy creating new programming for the Evolve Performance Training sessions. More details can be found on the Evolve Performance page.

There will be no sharing or circuit style training during Phase 3.

You will need to make a reservation with your trainer. If you would like more information regarding training opportunities, please contact our Fitness Director Kyle Bergman at kbergman@clubworx.net.

Members must wear a mask when entering the club, in common spaces, and any place where appropriate physical distancing cannot be maintained. We are waiting to hear from State Officials whether or not masks will be required during a workout in the gym. We ask that you plan to comply with local, state or federal guidelines once we know what they are.

We are asking all members to maintain a 6-foot distance between themselves and others in the club. We have added floor stickers six feet apart in our lobby for our check in process and separated equipment. Our staff will help members maintain distance as well.

We have added floor stickers 8-10 feet apart in the Group Exercise Studios. Studio 1 can now hold 18 participants, while Studio 2 (The Haven) can hold 10 participants. You will be required to reigster for classes ahead of time.

 

During our initial opening, we are not allowing guests or day passes. You must be a member in order to use the club. If you have a Performance Plus membership, we will bank your guest passes to use at a future time. They will not be lost.

Water Fountains will be turned off and not used. We will continue to sell bottled water if you forget to bring your own.

 

We have done maintenance to all of our air filters and vents at the club. Our large HVAC units provide fresh air exchange throughout the club above and beyond the State code required. We are in the process or improving the air exchange and reducing the humidity in The Loft Cycle Studio during the closure to ensure our members are safe when we can come back and ride!
