While we are aware that none of our safety measures can completely eliminate the risk of infection, we are hopeful that we can all work together to minimize the risk.  Some customers may not feel safe returning to the gym and we fully support your decision.

Opening our doors to our customers is something that we take very seriously. We want to provide our customers with the safest possible environment and much of our success will depend on all of our customers adhering to our new rules. Parents, please discuss these new policies with your children.
