COVID-19 Update To Members

August 24, 2020

As we prepare for the Fall, Gravity would like our members to be aware of the following policies regarding safety and prevention pertaining to   COVID-19.

Do not come to the club if you are sick.  All persons must answer NO to COVID-19 screening questions prior to each visit. 

We must have current contact information on file including phone number and email address.

Please continue to adhere to proper social distancing.  You must allow at least 2 metres between yourself and anyone else, including our staff.

Follow all flow and distancing markers and please respect the area around the front desk and our staff.

Change rooms and showers are open; however, social distancing must be maintained at all times.  Keep time in the change rooms to an absolute minimum.  Whenever possible, please come in your gym attire and avoid change rooms altogether. 

Towel service is still unavailable.

Do not linger within the gym.  Keep visits outside of the gym (and with social distancing).

Lockers are open, but only use lockers that allow proper social distancing.  If someone is using a locker, wait for them to clear the area before proceeding.

Only 3 people allowed to be in the change rooms at a time.  If someone is showering, this counts as one person.  We ask shower use to be minimal and whenever possible shower at home.

All equipment must be sanitized before and after use.  This includes all weight plates, attachments, handles, benches, weight pins, dumbbells, tubes, mats, etc.  You must spray the paper towel provided with sanitizer, then wipe down the item.  It is not acceptable to use your towel or to re-use paper towels that have dried out.  Cardio equipment must also be wiped down, but do not spray the consoles directly.

Members are reminded not to touch their faces during their workout and if they need to cough or sneeze they should do so into their elbow.  Hand sanitizer stations are located throughout the club with sanitizers and paper towels.

Use proper hand hygiene.  Posters are up throughout the club with information on how to effectively wash hands in order to kill the virus.

Do not share equipment.  If you leave a station, you MUST sanitize it before leaving.

Group fitness classes are available on a limited schedule.  Effective Monday, September 14th, classes will begin at 9:00am (not 9:15) and some new classes will slowly be added.  Check online for the updated schedule (will be posted on or before September 4th.  Sign up is mandatory and if you cannot make a class for which you have reserved, you must cancel online or call the club.  Group fitness participants must sanitize all equipment used in class and ensure they maintain social distancing at all times, including exiting, entering and sanitizing.  Markers are on the floor for class spacing.  No lingering after classes please.

Floor fans and water fountain are not available until further notice.

Sanitizing hands upon entry to the club is mandatory.  If you have an allergy, please bring your own approved sanitizer and allow us to see you clean your hands.
