Your health and safety are our #1 priority, and every decision we’ve made has been guided by that premise.
EXTRA SAFETY MEASURES:
UPGRADED CLEANING SCHEDULE:
We’ve allowed for more time between Classes (20 Minutes break) so we are able to clean equipment and our gym more effectively. This includes the regular cleaning of doorknobs, handrails, front desk area, Mats , Boxing Bags and any other surfaces or objects (ex. pens) that are touched during the class.
Our gym will also have a deep clean on a daily basis.
TAPING THE FLOOR: We have taped the floor , so you’ll have plenty of space to train and will not have to share equipment or space during your workout.
INCREASED VENTILATION: We will keep the studio well ventilated by Keeping the door open when appropriate and adjusting the air conditioning and fans as needed.
HAND SANITIZER & DISINFECTING SPRAYS : These items will be readily available for your use throughout the studio.
MASKS: Our staff will be wearing masks while they are at the studio as long as it’s necessary. If you’d like to wear one, please do!
