Covid Protocols When Training

  • Hand sanitizer and disposable wipes are placed abundantly throughout the space for workers and customers to disinfect their hands and equipment before and after use.

 

  • Trainers are required to wash hands before and after each training session and sanitize frequently during each session.

 

  • All equipment must be sanitized between uses. No equipment shall be used by another customer or returned to the storage rack / container without being sanitized.

 

  • Clients are encouraged to use one piece of equipment at a time (e.g., limit circuit training or “super sets” with multiple pieces of equipment) in order to facilitate required sanitizing.

 

  • Clients must wear masks when entering and leaving the building.

 

  • During sessions, if a client is retrieving a piece of equipment for use, masks must be on.

 

  • While working out in their own personal workspace at a high level of intensity, clients can take the mask partially off to facilitate breathing then must put it back on. Immediately after exercising, that particular workspace must be immediately sanitized.
