To ensure physical distancing, all classes will have a limited number of participants, per class, spaced out at least 200 square feet per person which will be marked on the floor.
Classes will have set times of 30 and 50-minute increments with a minimum of 30 minutes in between classes to allow for proper sanitization of the group fitness room, any equipment used, and cleaning of high traffic and frequently touched surfaces. The instructors and participants are responsible for cleaning in between classes. In addition, the commercial cleaning company will clean the group fitness room overnight and in the afternoon.
To halt the spread of illness, equipment usage during group fitness classes will be limited during Phase 2.
There will be no admittance inside any of the group fitness rooms including Spin, and Mind/Body rooms when classes are not in session. This is to minimize physical activity in the rooms, and to allow for cleaning in between classes.

All members must be present in the fitness club in order to sign up for any classes in which they would like to participate. The sign up is on a first come, first serve basis.
The instructor will bring in the sign-up sheet, and take roll call prior to class start. Anyone that is not on the list once it is full, is not permitted in the class.
