Will masks be required in the gym?
As we have been closely monitoring Public Health and government requirements, masks will be required at all times while inside the gym, EXCEPT while exercising.
Will loaner mats be available?
No, loaner mats will not be available for yoga. You must bring your own yoga mat.
Will loaner bottles be available?
No, loaner bottles will not be available. We ask that you bring your own bottle. We also have our own POWERSTATION waterbottles for sale.
Will gloves be required?
We will be cleaning regularly, but wearing gloves when handling equipment like dumbbells and battle ropes, provides an extra layer of safety. If you want to use gloves, we suggest you bring your own, but we do have a supply of disposable gloves here.
Are there any class changes?
We have created a re-opening schedule. There are about 1/2 the number of classes, and we have adjusted some of the times. Our intention is to be flexible and able to make further adjustments - additional classes and/or time changes - based on real-life experience on a week-by-week basis.
What have you done to improve social distancing in classes?
We have reduced class sizes in order to allow proper distancing between members. Cycle classes are organized where 3 metres of distance are between bikes. Classes in the TRX area have tape boxes on the floor to indicate where members should stand and work out. Yoga classes have tape boxes on the floor to indicate where your mat should be. Barre classes have tape on the wall mount where to stand.
Will towels be available?
Yes, but shower towels will be distributed at the front desk in order that we can keep them covered until use. Hand towels in the bathrooms have been replaced with non-touch paper towel dispensers.
How will we dispose of used masks and gloves?
We have a designated GLOVES/MASKS/WIPES trash can between the showers and bathrooms and ask members to dispose these items in that can.
Are there any new rules related to class attendance and arriving/departing the gym?
Yes. Members must be in class 10 minutes prior to start time of class and no one will be admitted after class starts. Pre-class sign up is REQUIRED for attendance - no walk-ins allowed. EVERYONE must check in at front desk upon arrival as we will be checking your temperature. We will disinfect cubbies regularly so storing your belongings during class will not be a problem.
What steps have you taken to minimize air-borne transmission?
We have increased the number of room fans, dehumidifiers, air purifiers and window exhaust to optimize air circulation and removal of air-borne particulates.
Will showers be available?
Yes. We have disinfectant spray for use on the shower walls, floors, etc. After a member uses a shower, we will lock the door until we can complete disinfecting for the next user.
