HEALTH & SAFETY MEASURES
We are committed to reducing the spread of COVID-19* and we are also committed to promoting fitness and mental health wellness through exercise and self-care. We have adopted a multi-prong approach that is aligned with the CDC and state and local recommendations. Read more about our on-site health and safety measures:
Personal Space: We have divided our open gym spaces into personal workout pods. These are single occupancy, partitioned spaces that will keep you at a distance from others so that you can focus on what is important - your workout. View downtown pods. View 360 & Westlake pods. Click here to see how our protocols are keeping you safe in our group programs.
Crowd Control: Every guest entering our spaces must have an appointment. This effectively controls the number of people in the space at one time allowing us to stay far under the 50% capacity limit.
AIR FILTRATION & CIRCULATION
We have upgraded to MERV-13 air filters at our clubs, ASHRAE's recommended filter for reducing airborne infectious aerosol exposure. We have purchased and installed HEPA filter air purifiers throughout our buildings that run 24/7. HEPA filters are known to abate allergens, bacteria, and viruses in the air. Each personal workout pod and enclosed space features a purifier that filters 350-1300 square feet of air every 30-minutes. Our workout pods range in size from 32-350 sq. ft. making our indoor air better filtered than most other places. In keeping with our core values of environmental sustainability – each of the air purifiers we selected is certified Energy Star rated.
SANITIZING & CLEANING
We have increased the amount of cleaning and sanitizing throughout the day. We deep clean with disinfectant foggers. Household disinfectant sprays bring harsh VOCs into an indoor environment. Our chosen disinfectant, Rejuvenate, is a hospital-grade accelerated hydrogen peroxide disinfectant approved by the EPA. AHP® is a trusted and reliable disinfectant that rapidly kills harmful pathogens, yet is non-toxic, non-irritating, and has no harsh chemical smell.
We have a dedicated COVID-19 Contact Tracer on staff who was certified via a Johns Hopkins Contact Tracing course. In the event of a positive case at our facilities, our Contact Tracer will work to identify anyone at risk of being exposed and connect with them. By requiring appointments at our facilities, we are able to access the necessary information to achieve contact tracing efficiently.
Mask requirements: Every person entering the gym is required to wear a mask covering their nose and mouth. Masks are required while moving throughout the gym, while working out, and while receiving services.
Temperature Screenings: Every person entering is subject to a contactless temperature screening and will be denied entry if their temperature is above 100.4.
Protect the Castle pledge: To help protect our community, all patrons must sign and abide by the guidelines regarding COVID exposure and prevention in the Protect the Castle pledge.
Personal Hygiene: Our hand sanitizer is a mix of 70% isopropyl alcohol and is available at the entrances and in each personal workout pod.
