To our wonderful members,
We are allowed to open the gym!! It’s been a long time coming but we are so grateful to finally be able to open our doors to help you manage your health and fitness!
As you no doubt already know there will be several policies and procedures that go along with the facilities being open during the ongoing pandemic. Here are some of the things to expect…
1. YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO WEAR A NON-MEDICAL MASK TO ENTER
The Grey Bruce Public Health Unit requires everyone to wear a mask in the common areas of a gym where physical distancing is difficult. This means the front entrance, desk area as well as the locker rooms. We encourage you to wear it when travelling from place to place in the weight room while lifting weights. It is not a requirement if you are using the cardio equipment or attending a fitness class.
2. THE NUMBER OF MEMBERS IN THE FACILITY MAY BE LIMITED
This number will be based on our square footage but will also depend on where people are in the gym during their workouts. Every second piece of cardio equipment will be put out of service to allow for proper social distancing in this area.
We will allow weight room members to use the studio, when there are no classes running, for functional, circuit style workouts requiring smaller equipment. Please respect the area and use it safely. DO NOT THROW BALLS ETC. AT THE WALLS. The area has cameras to monitor safety. Memberships will be revoked if damage has been done.
3. WORKOUT TIME MAY BE LIMITED TO ONE HOUR PER MEMBER
Depending on usage and the number of people wanting to work out we may have to limit a workout to one hour. Please respect this policy as well as your fellow gym members. You may be politely asked to leave if you over say your workout time.
4. YOU MUST CLEAN YOUR OWN EQUIPMENT AFTER USE
A spray bottle of sanitizing product and a towel will be given to each person upon entry. Use this on each and every surface and piece of equipment you touch. Please hand in the spray bottle and the towel to the laundry bin at the front desk when you leave. Hand sanitizer will be available for you upon entry and exit from the facility.
5. WASHROOMS AND LOCKER ROOMS WILL BE OPEN
We recommend that you come dressed to workout but showers will be available. Only one urinal in the men’s room will be available and the shower area will be limited to one at a time. Please practice social distancing in these areas as well as the rest of the gym. Masks will be required here.
6. YOU MUST BOOK CLASS PARTICIPATION THROUGH OUR WELLNESS LIVING PROGRAM
Classes will be limited in size due to the social distancing rules. Please pre-book classes and be sure to cancel if you decide not to come
7. YOU MUST BRING YOUR OWN MAT TO YOGA
We will no longer provide mats, straps, blocks, blankets or bolsters for our yoga classes. Other equipment used in classes that is easily cleaned will still be available for use. Your instructor will put the required equipment out for you prior to class. You will be responsible for cleaning the equipment you used after class. The instructor will put it away.
8. PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE GYM IF YOU ARE UNWELL
If you experience fever, sneezing, coughing, runny nose or other flu like symptoms please do not come to the gym. Please continue to wash your hands as often as possible. We will provide hand sanitizer for use on the way in and out of the facility.
