Your Health is our Top Priority
For the health and safety of our staff and all our gym members, we suggest you familiarize yourself with our new guidelines during COVID-19 as well as the guidelines we were adhering to just prior to closing the facility.
Social distancing is an important preventative measure to avoid spreading COVID-19. To reduce close contact, we will be limiting the number of members who may use the gym at any given time. Further, we ask that while you are at the gym, you keep at least 12 feet between you and other gym patrons.
Reserving Workout Times
We understand the temporary inconvenience that comes with only allowing a limited number of members to access the gym at a time. In an effort to help us all adhere to the social distancing guidelines and mitigate frustrations regarding whether or not a member can access the facility, we are requiring that all members register through the website. This simple feature allows members to reserve a time slot for their workout during regular business hours.
NOTE: To access this feature, you must have a ZenPlanner account if you became a member before August 2020 OR the Wix Member app if you signed up for a membership after August 2020. If you need assistance setting up your account, please contact us.
Workout time slots are offered in 1/2-hour increments for the circuit and scheduled 45 minute class times for group classes. To reserve a workout session, simply click on RESERVE NOW button next to any available time slot you are interested in. Classes are labeled with the class name and Circuit time is labeled "Circuit". This will guarantee your access to the gym and eliminate the likelihood of you having to wait until there is availability.
Additional Health & Safety Guidelines
Our updated rules and guidelines as outlined in no way supersede any national, state, or municipal rules that have been set in place as a result of COVID-19. Further, we strongly urge you to follow at all times all pandemic-related recommendations provided by the Center for Disease Control (CDC). This includes rules that may directly or indirectly cause harm to our business and/or our members.
The health and safety of our staff and our members is paramount. As such, we ask that all of our members over the age of 65 consider the recommendations by the CDC of avoiding fitness establishments during this crisis. While we at LIFT for Women LLC are not enforcing this individual recommendation, we do encourage those in this specific age group to strongly consider following it.
NEW RULES FOR PATRONS STARTING
[Updated on 8/27/2020]
1. WHEN ENTERING THE BUILDING, ALL MEMBERS MUST:
__ Sign a Covid-19 related liability waiver (This will be done only once, when the member enters the gym for the first time)
_ Due to CT State Ordinance an appropriate facial mask must be worn while entering the building, changing your shoes and going to your designated space on the circuit or class floor.
_ Have their temperature taken by staff (No one with a temperature above 100 will be allowed to enter and workout)
_ Sanitize their hands upon entry of the building.
_ Change your sneakers to sneakers that have not been worn outside. If you do not have sneakers that have not been worn outside you can wipe down the bottoms with sanitizer before entering the gym.
_ Be an active member. For the safety of all, only active members can use the facility. We will not be doing any trial memberships at this time. Children, parents, and friends will only be allowed to enter the premises if they have a mask and have their temperature taken, and will only stay within the facility for 5 minutes maximum, which is plenty of time for a pick up or drop off. NO ONE WILL BE ALLOWED TO SPECTATE A WORKOUT OR LOITER WITHIN THE FACILITY.
2. WHEN STAYING INSIDE THE FACILITY, ALL MEMBERS MUST:
_ Maintain the 12 feet distance from all other patrons.
_ Keep their bags either under cubbies or in locker area. Any bags found elsewhere will be removed and may be destroyed (with their contents) by staff.
_ Not eat. Eating food will no longer be permitted in facility
_ Not use the water fountain. Please bring your own water
__Spray down your own equipment after use, we will provide wipes and spray bottle to clean equipment.
__ Put Kleenexes only in the trash, not in cubbies, counters or on the floor.
3. DURING WORKOUTS, ALL MEMBERS WILL:
_ Put all equipment back in its proper place.
_ Wipe down all equipment and machines before and after use with the spray bottle.
_ Limit the number of pieces of equipment used at the same time. Sharing equipment is strongly discouraged due to the virus. Please adapt accordingly, and if sharing is unavoidable, please wipe down equipment between sets.
_ Limit workout sessions to one hour maximum until further notice (This will be strictly enforced)
_ Be efficient with their time. Please remember you only have 1/2 hour to workout on your own. Everyone is going to be excited to see one another given this close knit community. Just remember that due to social distancing limitations while you are talking and not working out another member may be waiting outside the facility waiting to get their workout in.
4. AFTER WORKOUTS, ALL MEMBERS MUST:
_ Wash their hands.
_ Leave no Kleenexes or towels out in the open. Place them in their appropriate bins or take them home
__ Not loiter. Again, we appreciate you wanting to talk with other patrons, but due to capacity constraints, you staying prevents someone else from entering. Please be mindful of the needs of all
