COVID-19 UPDATES!

We are monitoring the unfolding situation regarding the COVID-19 Virus and will post all updates directly to our homepage in an effort to keep everyone updated.

*****************************************

April 1, 2020

Dear FitClub Members,

Much has changed in the past week. We have learned how to serve many of you from a distance with our virtual membership, engagement in our app has soared, and we have turned our focus toward re-opening clubs that are cleaner, better equipped, and in pristine working order for all of you. We are also working on bringing even more programming to our virtual portal and app, so stay active in our communities and keep looking for more updates soon!

More importantly, during the past week, we have been hard at work trying to find ways to keep our employees earning a stable paycheck, and have been able to apply for emergency small business loans that will allow us to do that. While we are still awaiting final approval, we are happy and proud to announce that all employees are back on the payroll as of Monday March 30th, and will continue to be paid their regular rate of pay through the duration of our closure.

To help support our ongoing operations and our efforts while closed, we plan to move forward with our 5th and 7th billings as scheduled. We know this is a hard time for many of you, and we want to reiterate that we are here to help you as well. If you feel your circumstances have made it difficult to afford your monthly membership payment, we will help you put it on a temporary hold so you can avoid being charged. To ensure your request is properly processed, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with your name, phone number, and date of birth or member number, and we will make sure your payments are paused during our closure.

For those of you who are enjoying our virtual portal and app, who are able to more comfortably weather this storm, or who would like to help us as we work to improve the clubs (both physical and virtual) and keep our employees’ paychecks stable during this time, we greatly appreciate your support as you leave your monthly billing in place. For those of you who do this, we want you to rest assured that all of the money will go to sustain our employees and current club operating expenses. If you pay for any training sessions, we will make sure that any sessions that usually renew monthly have their expiration dates removed. That way, you can access them any time, either virtually while we are closed, or in person when we re-open. We remain committed to reaching out to each of you as soon as we re-open our doors, and will credit membership dues for the period of time we end up being closed. Please know that your support means the world to us right now.

In these uncharted waters, it can be difficult to know the next right step to take, but we remain committed to doing our best for you, our members, as well as our employees. We will continue to work to serve you and help keep you on track while we are closed, and we look forward to the day we can welcome you back into our clubs.

Today, more than any time in these past few weeks, we can say with confidence that we will get through this together. As long as we continue to do our best to support one another and our community, we are certain we will come out of this stronger than before.

Thank you for being a part of the FitClub Family.

Sincerely,

FitClub Management

03/20/2020 Coronavirus Update - Temporary Closure

 

Dear Members,

 

As the COVID-19 virus continues to spread, guidance from the CDC and our state government are providing increasingly stringent standards for group sizes and restrictions to daily activities to prevent the spread of this pandemic. Based upon the latest communications, it has become clear that the only responsible choice left to us is to temporarily suspend all club operations effective 8pm tonight March 20, 2020. Given the volatile nature of the situation, we do not believe it is responsible to arbitrarily pick a re-open date. We will continue to monitor this situation daily and will re-open as early as responsibly possible.  We will continue to update you on both our outlook and any changes that may be coming with timely email, Facebook and app communications during the time of our temporary closure. 

 

This is not a decision made lightly. We know you rely upon FitClub to meet your fitness needs, keep you on track toward your goals, and ultimately be your partner in a better, healthier life. Similarly, our employees depend upon FitClub for their livelihood, as they rely upon their jobs to provide for their families and futures. We take this dual mandate incredibly seriously and that is why it is so difficult for us to make this choice. Yet, in spite of the difficulty, it remains the right choice.

 

We are hopeful that by taking this action in solidarity with so many other businesses and organizations in our community that we will be able to come out of this stronger, wiser, and better able to fulfill our mission. We are committed to staying closed for as short a time as possible and anticipate that we will be back very soon to serve you and fulfill our role in the community as we have over these past 20 years. 

 

In the meantime, we will do our very best to continue to be your partner in a healthier life by releasing our FitClub Virtual App to all members. Our App is a phenomenal tool to help you stay on track while we are closed, and it includes tons of features to support you, including:

  • Virtual Workouts - Basic programs designed by our Director of Fitness for members of all fitness levels to complete with little-to-no equipment needed. These workouts include animations, rep counting, timed rest intervals, and voiceover instructions and encouragement.
  • On Demand Video Classes - A huge library of On Demand Classes to substitute the classes you are used to doing in the club. These classes are professionally filmed, and can be sorted and filtered by class intensity level, class type, and class duration.
  • Community -- Optional social networking and groups where you can engage with fellow members and keep each other motivated during this time of physical isolation.
  • Progress tracking to help keep you focused and making strides towards your fitness and nutrition goals while we’re closed.
  • And much, much more to keep you on track at this time and into the future

All active members should have received an invitation to sign up for our app, but in case you missed it (or didn’t receive it), please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with your name and date of birth, and we will make sure you get your invitation ASAP.

 

While we are certain that this app can be a big help to almost all our members, we recognize that it is not a full or adequate substitute for the service you have come to expect from FitClub. Therefore, as we prepare to temporarily halt operations, we are already working on a system to reach out to all affected members as soon as we resume operations to offer credits or extensions for any time we are closed. In short, no matter the duration of our closure, you can rest assured that we will make this right for all our members upon reopening our facility. Meanwhile, we will still do our very best to support you through our app.

 

Those of you who have personal training programs should expect to hear from your personal trainer soon. One of the few things we can offer our wonderful fitness employees is the ability to convert their clientele to virtual training via our app. We have made the decision to allow all of our clients to convert 1 in-person session for 3 days of custom-programmed virtual workouts from your trainer that will be delivered via our app. We hope you will give this new platform a try to help keep you on track toward your goals and help soften the blow of our closure to our training staff.

 

Since the inception of this crisis, we have done our very best to balance the needs of our members and staff with the health and well-being of our community. Though it is now increasingly clear we have reached a tipping point in that balance, we truly appreciate the incredible support you have shown us during this difficult time. We are thankful beyond words for each member of our FitClub family, and we look forward to the day when we can once again be physically united in our shared purpose - Fitness and Wellness for Life. Until then, we will continue virtually.

 

Forever Grateful,

 

The FitClub Management Team

3/15/2020 Update

Dear Members,

 

Now that the COVID-19 virus has been confirmed in our community, our leadership team has decided we must implement additional measures to keep our members, employees, and community safe during this volatile time. We take the guidelines issued by the CDC and Departments of Health very seriously and will be taking a number of steps to ensure adequate social distancing in our clubs to prevent the spread of this disease. In addition to the universal precautions we were already following, effective Monday, March 16, 2020, we will be taking the following steps until further notice:

  • All Group Exercise classes will be suspended at all clubs
  • FitClub Kids’ Clubhouse (childcare) will be closed at all clubs.
  • No daily or weekly guest passes will be issued at any FitClub location.
  • We will be taking every other piece of cardiovascular equipment out of service to allow ample space between members. These machines will be rotated and deeply cleaned/disinfected every day.
  • Group Personal Training sessions will continue until further notice. Our coaches have been instructed to keep participants separated and avoid the use of shared equipment in sessions.
  • Additional staff hours will be devoted specifically to disinfecting equipment every day. 

FitClub will remain a safe place to practice healthy habits if we all work together to protect ourselves and one another. We ask for everyone’s help in following our new rules, and we will be enforcing them vigorously to protect the wellbeing of our members and employees during this time.

 

We will also be deploying our FitClub Virtual App and online portal to ALL members this week. We have been hard at work adding features, and are excited to let you know that this portal will include: 

  • Virtual Workouts - Programs designed by our Director of Fitness for members of all fitness levels to complete with little-to-no equipment needed. These workouts include animations, rep counting, timed rest intervals, and voiceover instructions/encouragement. Just choose the workout that fits your fitness level and equipment access, hit “play,” and let your virtual trainer walk you through your daily workout!
  • On Demand Video Classes - A huge library of On Demand Classes to substitute the classes you are used to doing in the club. These classes are professionally filmed and can be sorted/filtered by class intensity level, class type, and class duration.
  • And much, much more to keep you on track, even if you can’t make it to the gym!

Please keep an eye out for email updates regarding app access. If you do not have an email on file, but would like to be granted access to the app, you can email our App team (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) with your name and date of birth or member number, and we will make sure you are given access!

 

In closing, we want to assure all our members that we are doing absolutely everything we can during this trying time to continue serving your fitness needs while being conscientious of our role as a local business leader and our responsibility to do the right thing in the face of the risks facing our community. We have contingency plans in place and will continue to execute them as needed to protect the health of our community while remaining unwavering in our commitment to never leave you without a solution for your fitness and wellness needs. 

 

Sincerely,

 

The FitClub Management Team

3/12/2020 Update

Dear Members,

As you probably know, yesterday the WHO declared this coronavirus a global pandemic. As a valued member of the FitClub family, we wanted to personally reach out and inform you of our response to the situation unfolding around the COVID-19 Coronavirus.

For now, we remain open and encourage all members to continue to exercise at our facilities while following some basic, universal precautions to protect yourself and others:

DO NOT:

  • We ask that you DO NOT use the facilities if you are sick, particularly if you have a fever or have had one in the past 72 hours, or if you have a family member at home who displays symptoms.
  • DO NOT Engage in shaking hands, giving high fives, or other forms of physical contact while in the clubs for the time being.
  • DO NOT Touch your face during your workout or in between sets, even to wipe off sweat. We will provide complimentary sweat towels to all members during this time in order to assist in this effort.

DO:

  • DO Disinfect all equipment with our Sanitizing Wipes or our Sanitizing Spray Bottles BEFORE AND AFTER using any equipment to protect yourself and others.
  • DO Wash hands thoroughly before and after using the restroom.
  • DO BYO(X): Bring your own yoga mat, towel, workout gloves, water bottle, headphones, etc…we will make every effort to disinfect all of our surfaces, equipment, accessories, and high touch areas, but your best protection is to be proactive!
  • DO Grab some extra tissues, which we leave out for all members, to have on hand in case you must cough or sneeze. It is always best to do so into a tissue and then to dispose of the tissue and disinfect your hands.
  • DO Contact us if you have any questions, concerns, or feedback about our club policies, procedures, or our response to this pandemic. We are here to work with you, and value your health above all else.

WHAT WE ARE DOING EVERY DAY:

  • We are proactively stocking up on sanitizing essentials to ensure we do not face a shortage as time goes on.
  • We are increasing our focus on sanitization within our daily housekeeping duties in order to reduce the chances of encountering contaminated surfaces.
  • We are increasing our messaging within the club including flyers in our high traffic areas and bathrooms encouraging members to be proactive in their personal sanitation.
  • We are monitoring the CDC as well as National, State, and Local Health Departments to provide guidance in determining future steps.
  • We are working to expedite delivery of our FitClub Virtual App to all members, and creating a library of workouts that our members can access anywhere and perform with no equipment needed.

We here at FitClub remain committed to continually monitoring this situation as it evolves and will update all of our members as our response changes.

Again, thank you for being a part of our FitClub Family. During these trying times, we must all rally together and care for ourselves and for one another, and that is exactly what we intend to do – together.

Sincerely,

FitClub Management
