CLEANLINESS STANDARDS AND SAFETY PROTOCOLS
ALL Workout Club locations will be open to our members!
To maintain safe social distancing, we will initially reopen at 50% of our maximum occupancy.
- ALL areas will be open for full unmonitored use. Group X Classes will resume with a maximum capacity of 10 per class.
- Our daycares, hot tubs, saunas, tanning, and steam rooms are still closed. We will notify members as soon as this changes.
- Face Coverings are required at this time for all staff and members when in the facility and not actively engaged in a workout where a face covering may make it difficult to breathe.
- Exceptions to this policy on the use of cloth face coverings are outlined by the CDC and includes younger children, to whom cloth face coverings may pose a health risk.
Safety Restrictions: In order to keep everyone safe we ask that you do not enter the facility if any of these conditions apply to you within the past 14 days:
- You are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19
- You have experienced a fever over 100 degrees Fahrenheit
- You have had close contact with anyone suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19
- You have traveled outside the state of NH on public transportation (domestically or internationally)
No registrations will be taken for the club except for all group fitness classes including Spin and Aqua Fit classes along with the Group fitness studio classes. *Club closing for cleaning does not affect the group fitness classes*
ADDITIONAL CLUB UPDATES
We have an extensive list of Group X classes kicking into gear with limited spaces available. Check out the Class Registration link to sign up and reserve your spot. To help manage the demand, please limit your class reservations to no more than 2 classes at a time to allow fellow members to rotate through and join in as well.
Currently, we are offering one-hour long Group X Classes with a class size of 10 members per session. Each club will be closed for 30 minutes after each workout session so that our employees can thoroughly clean and sanitize the facility. Please bear with us as we might have to tweak hours/scheduling as we muster through this for your ultimate workout pleasure.

iWAVE-C AIR PURIFICATION SYSTEM INSTALLLED
The iWave family of products have been proven through independent lab testing to significantly reduce a wide variety of pathogens and viruses similar to coronavirus in the breathing zone and on hard non-porous surfaces.
What is the iWave-C
iWave-C is a self-cleaning, bi-polar ionization generator for actively treating a building’s air quality that does not require replacement parts in a year or two like competing UV lights or other ionizer technologies. In addition, the iWave-C produces and maintains unparalleled ionization output and capabilities. As the air flows past the iWave-C, the device emits positive and negative ions, creating a plamsa region that actively purifies the supply air, killing mold, bacteria and viruses in the coil and living space. The ionization process also reduces allergens, smoke and static electricity, as well as controlling odors (cooking, pet, VOCs) and other particles (no more sunbeams) in the air without creating ozone or any harmful byproducts.
