COVID-19 has definitely been hard on a wide variety of businesses. Sadly, many businesses aren’t likely to recover as concerns over the virus continue to be at the forefront of so many lives. This includes gyms, which have often been forced to close due to safety concerns.
As the most reputable and health-conscious fitness center in Panama Beach, we knew that it was imperative to develop responsible guidelines to ensure a clean gym at all times. To put your mind at ease, we’re going to explain some of the techniques that we’re utilizing such as disinfecting gym equipment, educating our staff, and other such measures.
At Fitness 360, we have always prided ourselves in maintaining a clean environment for its members and visitors. Even before the virus existed, our fitness club was the cleanest in town. Since then, we’ve increased the frequency of our cleaning procedures along with more specific instructions for the entire staff. You’ll notice that we wipe down the workout equipment, door handles, keyboards, sinks, toilets, faucets, and other high-touch surfaces.
Disinfecting gym equipment is perhaps the most important part of our cleaning procedure since this is what our members use most. There are specific household disinfectants that are made for use against SAR-CoV-2, which is the virus that causes COVID-19. Our facility keeps plenty of these disinfectants on hand, so you can rest assured that every piece of equipment is not only being cleaned but also disinfected, which will kill the coronavirus on any surfaces.
Maintaining social distancing of at least six feet apart has become instrumental in staying safe from COVID-19. Fitness 360 enforces a social distancing policy at all times. We realize there are situations where this may be more difficult to maintain and our staff is always standing by to assist you. If you have any concerns with members not following the rules and they’re making you feel unsafe, speak up to us rather than being confrontational.
Wearing Face Masks
Since the virus spreads through droplets that can be expelled while you breath, cough, or sneeze, it’s important you wear a face mask while at our gym. Some members have expressed concern about wearing a mask while exercising, but it has proven to be entirely possible, even during a personal training session. If you have any questions or concerns, our staff can show you how to exercise with a face mask safely.
Fitness 360 wants every member or visitor to our gym to feel entirely safe. We have dedicated a good amount of time training our employees in a variety of techniques meant to maintain a clean and safe gym at all times. This includes disinfecting gym equipment, conducting thorough cleanings, showing members the proper way to exercise, and more. We are positive that this specialized training will create a safe, welcoming environment for everyone.
At this point in time, extremely crowded rooms aren’t very safe because they create an environment where COVID-19 can more easily spread from person to person. To help ensure that everyone will be able to maintain social distancing, we are reducing the size of our classes for the foreseeable future. This includes all of the Les Mills classes that we offer. But don’t worry, – you’ll find the same level of quality that you always expect at our fitness clubs.
In addition to employees helping keep our facility virus-free, you will find posted notices both inside and outside the gym. These will basically provide notification that members and visitors are expected to abide by the social distancing and face mask rules that we’ve set forth for everyone’s safety. These postings are clearly stated, but if you have any concerns, please don’t hesitate to ask one of our staff members.
Fitness 360 is dedicated to disinfecting gym equipment, maintaining social distancing, teaching our workout community, and other related tasks to keep our members safe.
