Hello Bao Family!

We are BEYOND EXCITED to finally be able to announce that we are officially back open on Friday July 24th, 2020 @ 5:30 a.m.

Your health and safety are our #1 priority, and every decision we’ve made has been guided by that premise.

  1. Members are required to wear a mask entering the facility, walking in common areas as well as exiting the facility. Masks are NOT REQUIRED to be worn during your workout.  We will have masks for purchase for $1 available to you should you require one.
  2. All members are required to have a quick forehead temperature scan before entering the facility.
  3. All members are asked to sign the online “Check-in waiver” Covid-19 self-assessment when they sign up for a class or workout. Read the Covid-19 waiver, check off the electronic signature and hit the Save button.
  4. Every member will receive their own equipment sanitizer bottle and cleaning cloth to wipe down all equipment used. All cloths and sanitizer bottles shall be handed back in at the front desk before leaving the facility.
Members will be required to book their workouts and classes in advance to secure a spot.

Workouts can be booked up to 5 days in advance through our online Member Portal.

  • At this time use of the showers, saunas, towel service and juice bar will be suspended.
Now that our plan is laid out, we want to make sure you know about all of the additional health and safety precautions we’re taking at the club!

UPGRADED CLEANING SCHEDULE:

Equipment will be thoroughly disinfected throughout the day every 30 minutes by a staff member.  We’ve allowed for more time between sessions so we are able to clean equipment and our facility more effectively. This includes the regular cleaning of doorknobs, handrails, front desk area, and any other surfaces or objects (ex. pens) that are touched throughout the day.

Our facility will CLOSED to all members between the hours of 2:00 am – 3:00 am and 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm for a deep sanitization on a daily basis.

Sanitation:

Our facility is well equipped with Sanitol Sanitizer – this is a health Canada recommended disinfectant against Covid-19. This is the sanitizer that will be in each spray bottle that you will be receiving. https://www.canada.ca/en/health-canada/services/drugs-health-products/disinfectants/covid-19/list.html#tbl1

TAPING THE FLOOR:

We have taped the floor with visible markers in our studios and the gym floor to ensure a 6’ safe distance from one another.

INCREASED VENTILATION:

We will keep the group exercise studio well ventilated by opening the doors. We have increased our ventilation system throughout the entire facility and will be adjusting the air conditioning as needed.

HAND SANITIZER:

These items will be readily available for your use throughout the club.

MASKS AND GLOVES:

Our coaches and team will be wearing masks while they are at the club as long as it’s necessary. If you’d like to wear one, please do! We will have masks available at the club for purchase at cost. We currently have cloth masks that can be washed up to 20 times for $10 or regular one time use masks for $1.  Gloves will also be available at no charge.

TEAM HANDWASHING:

Our coaches and team will be washing their hands when they arrive and leave and also throughout the day after each class or coaching session for at least 20 seconds.

EQUIPMENT:

Our cardio equipment has been limited to every other machine for social distancing. As for our Epic machines and machines that could not be spaced apart, we ask members to respect social distancing rules and avoid using a machine next to someone else. An employee will be on the gym floor to help with this process throughout the day.

We are in this together, and we need YOUR help as we re-open to keep our club as safe as possible.

  1. Workout Shoes Only: We are asking that everyone use gym shoes only (no street shoes) in the club. This will help avoid tracking in any germs or bacteria. Please bring a separate pair of sneakers that you only wear inside the club.
  2. Air High-Fives! As much as we LOVE high-fives in the club, we’ll only be doing air-high-fives at this time.
  3. Hand Washing: Please wash your hands (up to your elbows) for at LEAST 20 seconds BEFORE and AFTER your workout.
  4. Keeping Equipment Clean: Please wipe down every piece of equipment after each use with our provided sanitizer bottle and cleaning cloth.
  5. Please Stay Home If You’re Not Well: If you’re not feeling 100%, please stay home and rest or participate in our virtual sessions until you are feeling better. (Our team will also be following this policy!)
  6. Please Avoid “Congregating” In Groups Before / After Classes: We also are asking clients to avoid gathering in groups before, during, or after their workouts. Again, this is because of social distancing guidelines. If you arrive early for your workout, consider staying in your car until it’s time to come in.
  7. Weight Lifting: Please do not super set your workout exercises – use only one piece of equipment for each sets, sanitize the equipment, then move on to the next piece of equipment.

Phew! That was a lot to cover! Thank you for practicing physical distancing guidelines and We cannot WAIT to see you again back in the club!  As always, we’re here for you. If you have any questions or need anything, reach out any time.

Committed to Your Success,

Brian & Elaina Bahm
