OPERATION CROSSFIT OVER COVID

Phase 3 Member’s Guide

As we continue to follow the guidelines set in order to stay open it will be important that we adhere to guidelines outlined by government officials. It will be the best way to keep you safe and healthy while working out. We very much appreciate all of you being patient. We are doing our absolute best to keep you safe while providing you a good experience at the gym within the constraints of current regulations.

As the temperature starts to drop we are prepared to maintain the safety and health of every member. We will close the doors and turn the heat on for temperatures under 50 degrees. Our HVAC technician has installed UV lights within the HVAC system that are rated to kill 99.9% of pathogens, bacteria and viruses. Along with these lights we have upgraded the Air filters to MERV-13 filters. These are hospital grade filters that catch everything from smoke, bacteria, mold, and virus carrying particles.

Through Phase 3 of the reopening process our workouts will be slightly different than phase 2:

  • Based on current demand, we are choosing to keep classes capped at 17 – 20 members.
  • Maintain 10ft of distance between yourself and your closest neighbor. There are taped/marked 10 foot sections for each person. 
  • No partner WODs and recommended that athletes do not share equipment. If you choose to share equipment, it must be sanitized between uses.
  • You may workout outside if you feel more comfortable!
  • We request that upon entry into the gym, you take your own temperature using our wall mounted thermometer (temperature must be under 100.3 degrees to enter the gym and workout).
  • Please arrive to the gym wearing your facemask, and keep it on in the warmup area until your 1 hour class begins. From there you may choose to remove your facemask or keep it on during your workout.
  • If you choose to stay in the warmup area after your 1 hour class is over, please put your facemask back on and social distance!
  • We have the gym floors cleaned six times per week by our professioonal janitorial crew.

Reserving for Class

  • You must RESERVE for class through Zen Planner. Classes can be reserved 1 week in advance. You may not show up to class if you have not reserved. 
  • If you do not show up to a class that you had reserved and that class is at full capacity, you will be barred from that class time for 30 days. Please respect your fellow athletes who also want to workout.
  • Reservations can be cancelled up to 1 hour before class. If you need to cancel after that 1 hour window has passed you need to contact the gym via email or phone. If we do not answer your call, leave a voicemail message explaining your situation. Please do your best to drop your reservation 1 hour prior to class to ensure another member can come in to workout.
  • If you are waitlisted for a class, be sure to check 1 hour prior to class to see if you were bumped into the class if others dropped their reservations.

Class Structure

  • We ask you to continue to monitor your health and if you are not feeling well STAY HOME. 
  • Upon arrival at the gym, please take your temperature and at that time you may remove your facemask.
  • The coach will brief the class as usual but please maintain 10ft of distance between you and everyone else in class.
  • Before grabbing equipment, you must sanitize or wash your hands. 
  • Next, we recommend that you wipe down your equipment (wipe down the Barbell, Kettlebell handle and Pull-ups bars). The bumper plates should not be wiped down as the disinfect damages them. Please ensure appropriate distancing between workout stations.
  • After class, please sanitize the equipment with a disinfectant wipe or with the spray bottle solution and a hand towel (reminder – please do NOT wipe down the bumpers).
  • Before leaving we recommend that you sanitize or wash your hands.

General Guidelines

  • Follow the coaches directions to ensure a safe workout environment. All of the coaches have gone through a training session regarding the guidelines to be followed and will be in charge of making sure that all members adhere to them.
  • Please keep at least a distance of 10ft between yourself and other members/coaches.
  • We ask you to continue to monitor your health and if you are not feeling well STAY HOME. 
    • This includes any indication of being sick (shortness of breath, fever, cough, headache, nausea, vomiting, muscle aches and/or loss of smell)
