Dear Mike’s Fitness Community,

As we start to reopen the gym our first priority is to keep all our members and staff safe and healthy. 

We will be following the guidelines the state provides for gyms to start to open. This will include social distancing, the wearing of masks or face coverings and disinfecting. 

Please bear with us as we navigate the reopening process. We will have new and different rules than we did before the shut down. 

Be prepared for changes and new protocols on a regular basis while we reopen the gym. As we phase into opening this will include capacity limits and limited hours of operation. 

WHEN ENTERING THE BUILDING:

  • Building protocols: The building is requiring that only 2 people be in the elevator at any given time.
  • The front entrance will be open for use of the back stairwell.
  • When entering the building: A mask/face-covering is required. If you do not have one, masks will be available for sale. You will not be allowed to work out in our facility without a mask. Masks are mandatory. 

GYM CHECK IN AND WORKOUT PROTOCOLS:

  • When checking in your temperature must be taken.  If your temperature is 100 or above, you will not be allowed in the gym. We understand that it is summertime and the walk into the gym might make your temperature rise and can retake it within 10 minutes. 
  • When entering the gym: A mask/face-covering is required. If you do not have one, masks will be available for sale. You will not be allowed to work out in our facility without a mask. Masks are mandatory. 
  • Gym capacity will follow the state recommendations on how many members can be in the facility at one time. If required by the state, we will implement appointment only workouts. We are exploring opportunities to schedule times for people to be in the gym which would help address gym capacity and contact tracing should it be needed.
  • All areas in the gym will have disinfecting wipe dispensers strategically placed so members can wipe down equipment once they finish using it. 
  • All benches, free weights, plates, weight stacks, dumbbells and barbells must be wiped down. Basically, if you touch it you need to wipe it down.
  • Mike’s Fitness has added a night cleaning crew working to help ensure that the facility is kept clean and safe. Members will have to clean equipment as they work out to minimize any risk to others and themselves.
  • We are aware that Mike’s Fitness is a place for friends to come and catch up while they work out, however, during this unprecedented time, we are asking each person to complete their workout within a 90 minute timeframe. This is a temporary measure as we phase into our reopening.
  • Mike’s Fitness has purchased a fogger machine to deep clean the facility on a daily basis during the off or closed hours.
  • Group Fitness (studio classes) and team training will be phased in as permitted by the state. Social distancing will have to be observed, as well as, disinfection protocols.
  • This is an unprecedented time and our goal is to offer our members a safe environment with rules and regulations put in place to protect everyone’s health and well being. We must all do our part and be diligent in maintaining a safe environment for everyone.

Today Governor Baker announced a four-phase plan to re-open Massachusetts. Mike’s Fitness falls under Phase 3 of Massachusetts reopening plan. A formal opening date will be announced in the next few weeks.

While we won’t be open for workouts at this time, we have been working diligently from day one of our temporarily closure to make our space safe and healthy for our members. The health and safety of our members and staff is our top priority. We are taking extra steps during the closure to ensure the safety of our community. Stay tuned for additional information and keep up with updates on our social media platforms.

Sincerely,
Omar Argote
