Virus Response: Keeping Our Gym Safe

With concern for our clients, staff and instructors, Community Fitness continues to take steps to keep our gym safe in response to the coronavirus disease COVID-19.

What are we doing to reduce risk of COVID-19:

  • Our in-studio class capacity is currently capped at 50%.
  • We have a “no touch” class sign-in system.
  • Wear a mask, or provide proof of 2 weeks of being vaccinated to workout without a mask. Present your vaccination card to accounts
  • We’ve doubled the ventilation recommended by the WA State Department of Health. Studio air is replaced with FRESH AIR 10 times per hour (every 6min).
  • Alcohol hand sanitizer, wipes and spray are available throughout our studios.
  • Sterile disposable gloves are available at the front desk for clients who want them.
  • Staff regularly cleans high touch points such as door handles and plates, cabinet and drawer pulls, faucet and flushing mechanisms, light switches, counter tops, benches, shelves, pens and more with a 60% alcohol sanitizing solution.
  • Yoga: We removed all yoga props from our studios including blankets, bolsters, straps and yoga blocks.
  • We’re currently asking clients to bring their own fitness mats (for classes like Yoga, Barre and some Strength classes).
  • Strength: All traditional “Circuit Training” classes have been modified to individual workout stations.

When attending classes at Community Fitness, we’re asking all clients to:

  • Sanitize your equipment BEFORE and AFTER use.

How to Prevent the Spread of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Coronaviruses, including COVID-19, are primary spread between people who are within about 6 feet for greater than 15, without a mask. The same good health habits that prevent other viruses like the flu, also prevent the spread of COVID-19 and decrease the risk of getting sick:

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and/or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, with 60% alcohol.
