We can’t wait to finally open our doors back up and start seeing you again.
You are our family and we take your health and safety very seriously, and want to make sure you are comfortable coming back to GameChanger. That means we’re going above and beyond the CDC guidelines to make sure you & your loved ones stay safe.
Below, we’ve outlined our game plan that’ll help keep all of us healthy as we come out of the lockdown and start training together again.
Keep in mind that this is just the beginning. We’ll be constantly adding to our plan and we have even more strategies and upgrades coming in the near future. We’ll make sure to update you as they go into effect.
Check out what we have in place already:
ELEVATED CLEANING PROTOCOLS
We’ve always prided ourselves on having the cleanest fitness facility around and, to take that to the next level, we’ve consulted with a number of healthcare professionals to help us put the best and safest plan in place for you.
Based on that expert advice, here’s what we’re doing at GameChanger:
Electrostatic Disinfectant Spray
We’ve invested in electrostatic disinfectant spraying equipment. This new disinfecting method sprays more evenly, gets hard-to-reach crevices, sticks to every surface it coats, and is proven to kill viruses like COVID-19. We’ll be using this to clean the gym throughout the day, so you’re always working with clean surfaces.
Strictly-Enforced Deep Cleaning Schedule
We’re dedicating 15 minutes between every session so our staff can sanitize, disinfect and kill germs on all high touch areas and equipment. All weight equipment, toilet seats, sinks, all door knobs & handles, and cubbies will be sanitized and disinfected.
Additional Hand Sanitizer & Wipe Stations
It’s incredibly important that our members have unlimited access to hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes, so we’ve increased the number of stations for both throughout the facility. There will be disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizer easily accessed throughout the facility, so you’ll never be more than a few feet away if you need to disinfect your hands or any equipment.
EPA Registered Products
Not all disinfectants are made equally and only certain products are recognized by the EPA as effective against COVID-19. All the products at GameChanger are registered by the EPA and capable of killing COVID-19 within 60 seconds of contact.
THE EXPERIENCE AT GAMECHANGER
Our cleaning & sanitation practices aren’t the only thing that’ll help keep GameChanger a safe, healthy environment. Moving forward, we’ll be implementing the following practices that’ll change your workout experience, for the better:
Options to Train Online, In-Person, or Both!
Training online has been an amazing way for us to stay on top of our goals while ensuring we all adhere to government safety guidelines. When our in-person sessions resume, we’ll continue to offer our online sessions for those who prefer that. You can do one, the other, or both!
A Touch-Free Experience
From the second you walk-in, a coach will check you in for your workout, so you no longer have to touch the iPad yourself. Entrance doors and doors throughout the facility will be propped open, so you don’t have to touch any door knobs to get to your workout. Bathroom doors will be cracked open when not in use, and we installed hands-free door openers, so you don’t have to worry about touching restroom doors.
Your Very Own Equipment
During each session, you’ll have your own dedicated equipment that will not be shared with others. You can have confidence in knowing that you’re the only one who’s touched that equipment, and that it’s been properly disinfected and sanitized since the last time it was used.
Our Social Distancing Protocol
To make sure we’re properly social distancing, floors will be marked to control the flow into and out of the facility, so you don’t have to worry about coming into close contact with other members. We’ll have workout spots marked 6+ feet apart so you can workout while socially distanced.
Fewer Members in the Facility At All Times
While other fitness studios rely on cramming tons of people into a small space, we do the opposite. With small group personal training there will only be one or two handful of members in the facility at any time so you don’t have to worry about being in an overcrowded space.
Our health & safety protocols don’t just start & end with the GameChanger staff.
Our GameChanger members play a huge role in ensuring our workout environment continues to stay safe & sanitary.
We ask that you and the rest of the GC family do the following:
Stay Home If You’re Feeling Unwell
If you’re experiencing a cough, fever, or any other symptoms of COVID-19, we advise that you wait until you’ve been symptom- & fever-free for at least 3 days before returning to the gym. If you’ve tested positive for COVID-19 or come into close contact with someone who has tested positive, we ask that you wait 14 days or until you test negative for COVID-19 before returning to the gym.
Follow Good Hygiene Practices
Before entering and upon exiting the facility, please wash your hands with soap & water or use hand sanitizer. Also, wipe down any & all equipment you’ve used during your workout, and refrain from sharing equipment with other members.
Practice Social Distancing
Maintain a safe distance from others while in the facility, whether it is on the gym floor or in the front desk area, by following our markers placed on the floors. Avoid gathering in the front desk area (you’re welcome to do so outside the facility). Arrive no earlier than 5 minutes before your scheduled workout to allow other members to safely leave. We also advise your children stay at home, so we can keep the number of members in the facility to 12 or less.
We understand that this might be a little difficult and overwhelming.
However, once you’re back inside our doors, you’ll realize that your home-away-from-home is safer than ever.
We’ll be ready for you when you return, and we cannot wait to start training you again.
