The health and safety of our coaches and members have been our number one priority.
Below are the following changes and upgrades you can expect. We will continue to comply with all government mandates, and make upgrades and changes – so you can always check here for the most updated version of our safety protocol.
*Update: the following protocols are still in place, only now we are holding classes outside.
Every coach will have their temperature checked before their shift.
YOUR COACHES’ SAFETY
All coaches will wear a mask when checking in clients. If physical distance of 6 feet or greater is possible during class, coaches may remove their mask.
The Empower Fitness coaches are here to help, from a safe distance. We have put protocols in place that limits them from entering into your space.
We have limited the capacity for classes to ensure 6+ feet of social distancing between each member. We have also changed our class times. We will always be reassessing the class schedule to accommodate your needs.
RESERVING YOUR CLASS
Booking class in advance using the website or Pike13 app must be done for ALL classes. If you did not reserve a spot in the class, you will not be able to attend.
All members must arrive on time for class. To ensure everyone’s safety and uphold protocols, we will not be able to let anyone in to the gym after the designated class start time.
To allow as many members as possible to reserve a spot in class, we will be strictly enforcing our cancellation policy – cancellations must be made 8 hours prior to the class start time. Late cancellations and no-shows will result in a fee.
IN EMPOWER FITNESS
Bring only the essentials to class as you will take them to your designated workout station. No cubbies will be available.
Bring your own towel. We will not be providing complimentary towels.
Bring your own yoga mat or larger towel to perform burpees or other floor movements on.
There will be no community chalk box. We will provide a Ziploc bag for you to put chalk in for your own personal use. You may also bring your own personal chalk bag.
Bring your own water bottle. The reverse osmosis water fountain in the kitchen will be available to use.
You will have your own station in the gym, complete with all necessary equipment for the day’s workout.
YOU WILL HAVE SPECIFIC DETAILS AS TO WHERE YOUR STATION IS LOCATED AND AS TO WHERE YOU WILL BE SOCIALLY DISTANCED IN ORDER TO DO PULLUPS.
If you need to leave your station, you will be required to put your mask on.
When the workout is over, it is our policy to spend 10 minutes cleaning the equipment while also wearing the face masks. Disinfectant wipes will be provided to members at their stations to wipe down all equipment.
SAFETY & CLEANLINESS
There will be mandatory contactless temperature checks for members when entering the gym in addition to confirmation that you are not symptomatic of COVID-19.
Our coaches will work to coordinate members entering and exiting the gym, while maintaining social distancing practices.
PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
Masks are required when entering the gym, checking in, walking to your designated box, utilizing the restrooms, and exiting the studio. Masks are NOT mandatory during the workout class.
After each class, all equipment will be thoroughly disinfected.
The staff will utilize disinfectants proven to kill viruses like COVID-19 in bathrooms and other common areas before and after each class.
We will continue to provide multiple sanitization wipe stations around the gym for you to use. A hand sanitizer station will be at the entrance of studio and the sink in the kitchen can also be used to sanitize.
We will have air conditioning, but we will not be using fans to push the air around. We will open the doors regularly to allow fresh air to come in and out.
WHAT WE NEED FROM YOU
If you don’t feel 100% healthy, we ask that you please stay home. If you have had a cough, fever, or symptoms of COVID-19, do not come to the gym until you are symptom free for at least three days.
While you’re at Empower Fitness, please practice social distancing and be mindful of your fellow members. We encourage social distance high fives in place of actual high-fives!
We love time for member socializing after classes, however we ask that you please leave the gym once class ends so that we can have time for proper cleaning & sanitization.
