With the recent news on the corona virus outbreak we wanted to give you an update on our point of view and our preventative measures. First of all we want you to know that we are committed to stay open, as long as we are permitted to do so, but also want to be responsible at the same time.
We believe in the importance of your fitness and health and that the time spend in the gym will contribute to that. However we are strong believers of a 'better be safe, than sorry' mindset. Therefor we will need to take precautions and we will take the following preventative measures.
WHAT WE WILL DO
Increase of cleaning frequency
We will clean all 'hotspots' in the gym more frequently.
Door knots, barbells and all other equipment/items that are used frequently, will get a proper wipe down on a regular basis.
Stay at home workouts
We will launch a special workout track in SugarWOD with stay at home workouts for all our members that need to stay in-house. You can find this track in the SugarWOD app if you click the ‘workout of the day’ button on the whiteboard.
Increase cleaning utilities & stations
We will increase our cleaning utilities and create more stations for all of our members/visitors to use during their workout.
Decrease class sizes
We will decrease our class sizes to a max of 10 spots per class in order to have enough personal space. We will enroll this for all upcoming classes that are not fully booked yet.
Decrease of equipment needed
We will decrease the amount of equipment that is needed during our classes. This way we want to decreased the amount of contactpoints.
As for now we won’t be programming any buddy workouts during our classes and highly discourage high fives or any other variation, to decrease inter-personal contact. Our last buddy workout will be held tomorrow during the Bring A Friend workout.
All our visitors will be notified of our policy on this matter, prior to visiting our facility.
WHY BE THIS CAUTIONARY?
For the most part, our demographic isn't what you would consider "at risk," but not being at risk doesn't mean you can't become a carrier and spread it to people who are (like your parents or grandparents). Eventually it concerns us all and we are all in it together.
WHAT YOU CAN DO
Feeling sick? Stay home
To prevent other members to become sick we ask all members that are feeling sick, to stay at home until they feel better. We have created a specific ‘Stay at Home’ workout track for all our members that will need to stay home, so they can do a workout in their homes with minimal equipment needed.
Clean your hands before & after workout
We ask all of our members and visitors to wash their hands right after they’ve come in the gym and right after their workout.
Don't touch your face
We recommend not to touch your face, during class. This way we try to prevent the posibility of spreading bacteria.
Clean workout equipment before & after workout
We kindly ask you to clean the equipment thoroughly that you’ve used after your workout with disinfectant that you can we’ve supplied in the gym. Additionally, If you would like to wipe down your equipment before you start, you are more than welcome to do so.
Don't sign out for class unless you're feeling sick
Because we will decrease the amount of spots available in our classes, we kindly ask you NOT to cancel a class unless you're feeling sick. This way we can ensure everyone to join a class and prevent late cancels and low attendance.
Try not to hang around
As a community based gym it's really hard not to hang around with your fellow Wildhearts, but we discourage doing so for the time being.
Bring your own towel
We ask all members to bring their own towel to the gym and use it during and after class to absorb/clean/wipe down sweat or other body fluids.
Good bye for now 'High Five'
We ask all our members to not high five, or use any other variations, for the time being.
With these preventative measures we try to keep the gym a safe place for all of our members and visitors. We will keep you updated if anything will change.
As for now The Club Games '20 finals event and team prep hours are still on. We do recommend teams to take preventative measurements during their team training. If anything will change on this matter, we will keep you updated.
We want to thank you for understanding and your participation, until this outbreak has subsided.
If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to us and email firstname.lastname@example.org or call +31633976698. We are happy to be of any assistance.
