WELCOMING YOU BACK SLOWLY & SAFELY!

Our top priority is the health and well-being of our members, staff and community, and we’re working hard to ensure our facilities meet the highest standards for hygiene and safety based on CDC, state and local health guidelines. Below is the latest updates to our phased re-opening plan. Please note this information could change at any time.

  1. Are masks required to enter the facility?
    Yes, everyone 5 and older is required to wear a mask indoors, unless they have a medical condition that prevents mask use. According to the Executive Order, proof is not required.
  2. Are masks required everywhere in the facility?
    Yes, unless you are actively showering, swimming, eating, drinking, or you are the only person in the room. If you have a medical condition that prevents mask use, you are not required to wear a mask.
  3. Do I have to wear a mask while working out?
    Yes. We know it can be difficult at times to wear a mask while working out. We understand. We are asking our members and guests to wear a mask AT ALL TIMES. If you are having trouble breathing, especially during accelerated physical exertion activities, you can take your mask off briefly, but we ask that you replace it when you are able. If you do need to remove your mask temporarily to catch your breath, we ask that you’re respectful of any one that may be near you.
