Wellness Center Phase 1 Policy Updates

Remember, it is your responsibility to be aware of and comply with these policies. Please see our Member Playbook located on the front page of our website for a full list of our policies in place for your safety.

  • Masks
  • The ONLY time you are allowed to remove your mask inside the facility is:When you are actively exercising at a higher intensity or swimming in the pool,AND you are NOT talking (talking while exercising requires a mask by both people),AND you are at least 10 feet away from anyone else.
  • ANYONE talking, no matter how few words are spoken, MUST wear a mask and practice social distancing. Both people must wear a mask even if only one person is talking!
  • ANYONE working out together or spotting must both wear a mask at all times whether talking or not. Please remember that talking on the phone with earbuds is still considered talking and requires a mask.
  • Not all face coverings provide the same protection. Please read the Duke University study regarding using gaiters as a face covering. Neck gaiters may be among the least effective types of face coverings for preventing the spread of respiratory droplets. We highly recommend you invest in a mask that provides the most protection possible and fits well. 
  • Room Capacity
  • Currently, the room capacity for the Free Weight Room is limited to 40 people and 35 people in the Cardio Room; this includes Wellness Center staff. If capacity is reached, a single entrance will be established for each room. The single entry point will be the doors located closest to the membership lobby. There may be a short wait time, and we appreciate your patience. An announcement will be made when we are no longer at capacity. To avoid the wait time due to room capacities, consider planning your workouts during non-busy times. Ask staff at the membership desk to help identify a day and time that works with your schedule.  
  • Be considerate of others; during room capacity, move through your workout without the use of phones.  
  • Disinfecting
  • Members are required to wipe down all equipment and touch points with the approved disinfecting wipes. This includes all handles, screens, weight pins, upholstered pads, cable attachments, dumbbells, weight bars, weight plates, etc. It also includes anything you touched with a phone, water bottle or other personal item. 
  • Do not use the same wipe on multiple pieces of equipment; however, one wipe can be used to disinfect ALL touch points on a single piece of equipment.
