- Touch surfaces will be deep cleaned every two hours.
- Cleaning staff will be wearing appropriate PPE.
- Wellness staff will be consistently cleaning equipment and encouraging members to do the same.
- Sanitizing and wipe-pull stations have been added to the wellness floor and studios.
They have also announced changes to continue to encourage social distancing while protecting both guests and staff.
- Masking – Virginia guidelines require appropriate facial covering to the greatest extent possible while in the facility. Masks are not necessary while exercising, but required in all common areas. If you forget your mask, one will be provided.
- Floor Markers – Standing markers and arrows will be placed on the floor at the front desk, in the wellness studios, in high traffic areas, and next to select pieces of equipment to guide social distancing. No “spotting” unless both participants are from the same household.
- Wiping Equipment – While staff will be cleaning equipment, visitors are also required to clean before and after each use. Failure to do so may result in your dismissal for the day.
- Removed Furniture & Equipment – We’ve removed high-contact surfaces such as chairs and tables as well as soft surfaces that are hard to clean such as mats and battle ropes.
- Check Out – We’re asking guests to check out of the facility at the front desk so we can better monitor facility capacity.
