We're Back and Better Than Before!
Elevate Fitness is more than a gym, it’s more than a building, it’s more than classes and exercise equipment (although we know you’re missing your favorite pieces) – it’s a community. And we’re so excited to welcome our community back to the clubs this week. We’ve been hard at work making sure we’re ready to re-open safely and effectively. Here’s what you need to know!
We will be following all provided New York State government requirements for health club operations in this phase of our re-opening. We ask you to keep in mind that these requirements were created by NYS officials, and not the Elevate Fitness team. In order to legally and safely re-open our clubs, we must comply with these requirements and ask our members to also comply with all posted and communicated safety requirements.
We believe that the temporary inconveniences will be far outweighed by the benefits of resuming our fitness programs in order to build our immune systems, create better general physical and mental health and to reach our fitness and wellness goals!
This video was created when we reopened in August of 2020, protocol has changed since then. Please scroll down for current protocol.
Keeping Elevate Safe For You
Not only have we spent this time sanitizing and deep cleaning from floor to ceiling, but we’ve made a significant investment in our sanitation processes moving forward.
Each club has been equipped with multiple Reme Halo air purification devices to sanitize the air you breath in the club!
We’ve always used high-quality products for sanitization at Elevate Fitness. Our disinfectants are hospital-grade, guaranteed to kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses including the coronavirus.
NYS requires masks at all times while in the club unless swimming or showering for all individuals who are not fully vaccinated. NYS does not allow bandanas, gaiters, or buffs. Masks only. Fully vaccinated individuals may choose whether or not to wear masks in the clubs.
You’ll see increased signage to remind and educate our community on the importance of social distancing.
We ask that when choosing equipment to use, you allow for proper social distance (six feet or greater) between you and other members and our staff when possible unless you know the vaccination status of those around you. This may mean patiently waiting for machines neighboring those you intend you use to be vacated before using them.
Memberships have been reinstated and most members who had requested freezes or other considerations for their memberships due to the pandemic have been serviced at this time.
Annual paid-in-full membership billing has resumed and invoices are being sent out monthly for those members.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about your membership please reach out directly to the member services team at your club using the contact information below:
There are additional changes you can expect when you return including, but not limited to:
- Over 20 additional touch-free hand-sanitizer have been installed throughout each club,
- Over 20 additional touch-free paper-towel dispensers have been installed in each club and we are using higher quality paper-towels for better cleaning.
- At this time we have made the decision to NOT reopen the Kids Clubs moving forward. For a detailed explanation of this decision, please see your club manager.
What Else Have We Been Up To?
- Repaired parking lots,
- Purchased and installed new air conditioning units for the clubs,
- Replaced flooring,
YOUR KINDNESS and PATIENCE
Finally, we ask that you’re patient with us as we figure out the path forward. We ask that you exercise kindness and compassion with our entire community by following the safety protocol we set forth. Together, we will figure out our new normal.
