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 still 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 six 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 have added a new feature to our 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 Mindbody account. If you have not created an account or are not sure, click HERE. If you need assistance setting up your account, please contact us.
Workout time slots are offered in one-hour increments. To reserve a workout session, simply click on the Sign Up Now button next to any available slot under "Open Gym" classes. While it is not mandatory to reserve a time slot in order to access the gym and we will always allow walk-ins if there is availability, we strongly encourage our members to reserve a workout time. 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 Off the Grid Fitness are not enforcing this individual recommendation, we do encourage those in this specific age group to strongly consider following it.
