COVID-19 PROCEDURES


We want to encourage everyone to stay safe and choose what is best for them, but we are excited to announce that we have resumed in-person Personal Training.

 

We have made a bunch of changes to our policies and facility to promote physical distancing and enhanced cleaning measures, such as:

 

  1. Personal Training will be held in Studio A or Studio C, which will only allow for 1 Trainer + 1-2 clients at a time.
    • Alternatively, sessions may be completed outside on the grassy patch in front of the Recreation & Fitness Center, or at the Track & Field Complex
    • Sessions may also be completed out on the Fitness Floor with appropriate social distancing in mind between client/trainer
  2. Staff will be required to wear a face covering at all times.
  3. Clients will be required to wear a face covering at all times.
  4. Clients MUST complete the Personal Training COVID-19 Questionnaire prior to each session!  *This is a university requirement for Contact Tracking.
  5. Personal Trainers must keep 10 feet between themselves and their client(s) at all times; except in the circumstance where heart rate and/or blood pressure needs to be assessed.
  6. Efforts will be made to modify Personal Training sessions to avoid exercises that may require the trainer to spot their client.
  7. Efforts will be made to modify Personal Training sessions for minimal use of equipment, being mindful to select items that are less absorbent, and more easily sanitized.
  8. When use of a mat is necessary, yoga mats will be used in place of traditional exercise mats as they can be washed after use.
  9. Trainers will be required to clean any common touch points in the Studios, such as: light switches, fan switches, and doorknobs with Husky 891 Arena Disinfectant.
  10. Immediately after the session, Trainers will be responsible for cleaning all equipment used with Husky 891 Arena Disinfectant.
  11. Yoga mats will be washed after each use due to their absorbency. These will be placed in a “dirty” laundry bin at the end of each session and washed prior to another use.

 

With these changes in mind, we want to assure you that your health is our top priority!

If you are still uneasy about in-person Personal Training, you may choose to move forward with Virtual Personal Training Sessions via Zoom.
