HERE’S WHAT WE’RE DOING:
Preparing for Your Return
In addition to following CDC guidelines, World Gym is taking extra precau- tions to help our members and staff stay safe and healthy. This includes ex- tensive cleaning protocols and social/physical distancing practices within all areas of the gym.
Taking A Comprehensive Approach
We continue to follow stringent protocols for proper cleaning, disinfection and sanitization, operations and maintenance, as well as adding additional procedures and staff to achieve a new level of cleanliness.
Adding More Deep Cleans
We have expanded the sanitization/disinfection of high-touch surfaces. Hours and schedules have been adjusted to allow for daily and overnight deep cleaning.
Enhancing Our Procedures
EPA-registered disinfectant that kills the COVID-19 virus along with hospital grade ELECTROSTATIC Sprayers will be used.
Providing Self-Cleaning and Sanitizing Stations
Sanitization Stations have been strategically located with spray and wipes in close proximity to all equipment. Alcohol based hand sanitization units are conveniently located throughout the club. Please use them.
Implementing A Safer Way to Be Together
We are taking careful actions to facilitate social/physical distancing. Look for extra signs to guide you through each space and help us all practice social/ physical distancing.
Prioritizing Staff Safety
World Gym is dedicated to the health and safety of our entire community, in- cluding our great staff. In addition to adapting the environment in which they work to help ensure adequate spacing, our personnel will be encouraged or re- quired to wear masks and self-temperature checks will be taken at home. Upon arrival to the gym each staff member will be temperature checked by manage- ment prior to beginning their shift. This helps us to keep in line with government orders and guidelines and protect all staff and members. Any staff that does not meet the temperature criteria will be sent home. If any staff member is experi- encing any symptoms such as fever, cough or runny nose, they will not be per- mitted to work that day and will be advised to seek medical attention.
Providing Additional Equipment Spacing
You will likely notice increased spacing between equipment and within work- out areas to allow for appropriate social/physical distancing. Various signs will indicate the equipment in use and those pieces that will be rotated into use. Additional signs will instruct you to respect each other’s distance and use only certain pieces of equipment.
Modifying World Gym Athletics Classes
Due to regulations and guidelines provided, we will be limiting attendance to all World Gym Athletics classes. All classes will require reservations, and schedules will be adjusted to be consistent with governmental orders and guidelines and to allow for thorough cleaning between classes. We have put a condensed schedule in place that still allows for the most popular styles of classes along with the instructors and coaches you are familiar with. (See schedule) Look for floor indicators in your class, placed 6 feet apart to help practice social/physical distancing. Equipment, when applicable, will be laid out for you at the beginning of class. Classes will be spaced to allow for the sanitizing of the room and equipment. More information on how to make class reservations will be coming soon.
Modifying Locker Rooms
Based on governmental orders and guidelines to reopen, our lockers and showers may be permitted to open as long as strict physical distancing guidelines are in place. Please be mindful of physical distancing while in the locker rooms. If permitted, only certain lockers will be available for use and they will be spaced out accordingly. Please be aware that sinks could be an infection source and you should avoid placing hairbrushes and other items directly on counter surfaces. We will perform frequent sanitization of shared surfaces throughout the day using EPA-registered, virus-killing disinfectants.
Limiting Some Amenities
Based on the current governmental orders and guidelines, some amenities will remain modified initially, like our Recovery Zone.
Providing a More Personal, Personal Training Experience
Staff will clean and wipe down each piece of equipment before and after each use. To protect members and Trainers, we will practice social/physical distancing of 6 feet during 1:1 sessions, eliminate any physical contact and masks will be encouraged or required to be worn by all Trainers. When avail- able, training may be done outdoors or in other areas in the club to help en- courage health and safety.
