Here’s what we’re doing to help keep you safe:

  • We are taking a phased approach. We’ll only reopen areas in the facility where we can implement enhanced health and safety protocols.
  • We are practicing social distancing. We ask that you stay six feet apart from other members. You will notice increased spacing between equipment and within workout areas. Look for extra signs to guide you through each space.
  • We are limiting facility capacity. To ensure enough space for social distancing, we’re only allowing a certain number of people in each facility at one time. This means you will have to reserve a time to enter. Learn more about the reservation process.
  • We are cleaning frequently. While the facility is open, we are sanitizing all equipment and surfaces with disinfectant in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines. We are also deep cleaning the facility every night.
