COVID-19 Phase 4

COVID-19 Phase 4

PART 4 - PROTECTING OUR FITCLUB FAMILY

The health and safety of our FitClub Family is our #1 priority. We're taking measures that align with industry best practices and adhere to both requirements and recommendations of public health officials to keep you safe. You should ALWAYS feel safe in our clubs, and we're taking every possible step to make sure you do. Here's a list of the new rules and protocols we're put in place for members and staff.

MEMBER RULES AND PROTOCOLS

  • Face Coverings: Face coverings will be mandatory for all members upon club entry and at all times except while exercising, while in the pool, or in the wet area of the locker rooms. Face coverings removed during exercise should be kept within easy access at all times, preferably in a bag or on your person. Face coverings will be available for purchase for $2 if a member forgets to bring one, but will be limited to one purchase per member per visit.
  • ​Social Distancing: Members will be expected to observe social distancing measures including observing floor signs that indicate dedicated waiting areas for high-traffic zones, spacing markers in group studios, and directional arrows for high-traffic or confined walking lanes. Members will also be expected to avoid contact and maintain six feet of distance whenever practical with anyone outside of their household.
  • ​Spotting and "Working in": Spotting will be allowed in our free weight areas to reduce injury risk. Spotters will be required to wear a face covering and should avoid contact as much as possible. "Working in" on the same piece of equipment between sets is discouraged among members from different households, and should only be done if both members observe 6 feet of distance at all times and thoroughly disinfect the equipment before any after use.
  • ​Temperature Checks: All members will be required to consent to a contactless (infrared) temperature reading. Any members with a temperature exceeding 100.4 degrees fahrenheit will not be allowed to work out, and will be required to wait at least 72 hours before making another reservation.
  • ​Symptom-Free: All members will be required to be free from all COVID-19 symptoms for at least 72 hours prior to entering any FitClub facility. All reservations will require a member to certify that they are symptom free at time of booking and to agree to cancel their reservation if they develop symptoms prior to their reservation. Cancellations made within 2 hours of reservation time due to symptoms emerging will not be subject to a missed appointment fee.
  • Dress for Success: Whenever practical, we ask that members come dressed in proper workout attire to reduce traffic in our locker room areas. If a member must change in the locker room, we ask that they follow locker room protocols and maintain a minimum of 6 feet of social distance at all times.
  • No Guests: Please do not bring a guest during the initial part of Phase 4, unless they are interested in also becoming a member. We are limiting all non-member traffic during this time to reduce the risk to all members and staff.
  • ​COVID-19 notification: All members must agree to notify FitClub as soon as practical if they receive a positive test result for COVID-19 within 14 days of visiting FitClub.
  • ​Disinfection: All areas of the gym will be equipped with disinfecting wipes and/or bottles with cleaning solutions and paper towels. Hand sanitizer will also be available. Members will be required to wipe down all equipment before and after use, and are strongly encouraged to use hand sanitizer or wash hands frequently.

STAFF RULES AND PROTOCOLS

  • Face Coverings: Face coverings will be required at all times while indoors, except when exercising. Instructors may remove their face covering while teaching or recording a live streaming class, provided they are able to ensure a minimum of 6 feet of social distance at all times. 
  • ​Gloves: Disposable gloves are required during cleaning, while performing temperature checks or any action that could inadvertently cause contact with another person, or when handling cash transactions.
  • ​Social Distancing: ​Physical separation of at least 6 feet will be enforced wherever practical, including during one-on-one training sessions.
  • ​Temperature Checks: All members will be required to consent to a contactless (infrared) temperature reading. Any members with a temperature exceeding 100.4 degrees fahrenheit will not be allowed to work out, and will be required to wait at least 72 hours before making another reservation.
  • ​Symptom surveys: All employees will be required to complete a symptom survey (including temperature check) prior to beginning each shift and again after 4 hours for any shift that is over 5 hours in length.
  • Workstations: ​Shared resources will be eliminated where possible, and disinfection will be required between uses for those that remain.
  • ​Area Monitors: Dedicated staff members will be assigned to monitor specific areas of the club during high traffic hours to ensure proper distancing is observed and disinfect equipment after member use.
  • ​Proper Hygiene:​ Frequent hand washing and use of hand sanitizer is strongly encouraged. Employees are also expected to disinfect shared resources before and after their shift.
  • ​COVID-19 Exposure: Any staff member who has been in contact with someone who then received a positive COVID-19 test within 14 days will be asked to notify public health authorities and to comply with their instructions. Such staff members will not be expected to report to work until they have been cleared by a medical professional.

VENDOR PROTOCOLS

  • Face Coverings: Vendors will be required to wear face coverings at all times while inside FitClub locations.
  • ​Temperature Checks: All vendors seeking entry to a FitClub facility will be required to consent to a contactless (infrared) temperature reading. Any vendors with a temperature exceeding 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit will not be allowed entry.
  • ​Record Keeping: All vendors are required to clearly state their name, company, and purpose for entering FitClub facilities before being granted allowed entry.
  • Limit Contact: All vendors will be required to avoid members and limit contact with staff to necessary interactions only.
