Members of the Impact Community,

 

We have missed you and hope this finds you all well and safe! We wanted to fill you in  on some upcoming changes. On Monday, April 27th- Governor Polis spoke to Colorado about the Stay-at-home order coming to an end. He outlined the next phase of the Coronavirus pandemic. The slides from that presentation are here. We are anticipating that the reopening of the country will be similar to the manner it was shut down. It will happen in phases and be led by the local government based on the current situation. 

 

The Impact team cares deeply about your mental and physical health and we’re here to support you. We are working hard to develop a plan for return in a safe, deliberate, and phased manner. We will be guided by the best science and data available to us and will continue to make these decisions with our staff and members’ health and safety as our top priority. 

 

As we begin this first phase of re-opening, we strongly urge people to maintain social distancing principles. There will be several factors that inform our strategy in the operation and maintenance of the gym and overall team safety, but here are some key highlights of our plans during ALL phases of re-opening.

 

STEPS WE ARE TAKING TO MAKE SURE IMPACT IS A SAFE PLACE TO WORKOUT 

  • Follow strict cleaning and sanitation policies for weights, equipment, and common areas and surfaces after every session and use. 

  • Enforce strict social distancing procedures - 6ft minimum distancing, equipment staging, sectional training spaces, appointment only training. 

  • Use a professional company to clean, sanitize and stock the facility with adequate supplies.

  • Set up hand sanitizing stations at each entrance and exit.

  • Enter and exit the facility on the right side and maintain distance from others.

  • We will invest in temperature sensors in order to conduct symptom and temperature checks for our employees. This follows the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment guidelines and will allow us to ensure that our trainers in the building are healthy. 

  • Minimize the amount of staff exposure to members/clients.

  • Virtual Classes will continue to be offered via our facebook group

  • Remote check in via Impact and MindBody App 


 

PHASE 1:

 

The most recent information we have received is that Boulder County will be lifting the stay-at-home mandate on Friday, May 8th. We will be moving into Phase 1 called Safer-at-home. To learn more about this phase from the State, visit https://covid19.colorado.gov/safer-at-home


 

REDUCED CAPACITY AND SOCIAL DISTANCING 

Personal and Semi-Private Training up to 3 people will be offered for CrossFit, barre, yoga, strength, TRX, mobility, boxing, and athlete training sessions at Impact as a part of the first phase. Our plans are currently pending city and county approval, but we hope to be ready to open for personals and Semi-private sessions Tuesday, May 12th at 6am.

  • During phase one, you will only be permitted in the building if you have an appointment scheduled or have reserved a spot in a semi-private session.  We will have no more than 3 people training in each space at any given time and a reservation must be made prior to entering the facility.

  • All sign-ins will be done virtually and remotely. We encourage you to update your Impact app so that you can reserve a spot for your session. If you have not previously used the Impact app to reserve classes, simply download the Impact Sports Performance app from the app store and set up your account. Please sign up for only one slot per day and be considerate of other members and sign up only one day in advance. If you cannot make it to your session, please cancel promptly so someone else can take your spot. 

  •  If you have a personal trainer, please contact your personal trainer directly and they will reserve sessions and space for you.

  • We will not have a front desk staff in place during this time to protect our staff and limit the amount of people in the building. We will have a staff member on site to manage daily operations, but they will not be in contact with members or clients.

  • We will have areas taped off to designate adequate spacing between trainers/members in order to ensure that distance is kept while working out in the facility. 

  • Communal gathering spaces, such as locker rooms, showers, or the waiting room, will be closed during this time.

  • We will reduce the amount of cardio equipment in use to ensure that heavy breathing/aspiration while exercising does not contribute to the spread of the virus. 

REDUCED TRAINING TIMES 

  • Each personal or semi private session will be 45 minutes long. This will allow time for clients to help clean equipment and exit the facility before the next session’s clients enter. In order to maximize social distancing and minimize contact between members, no one will be permitted to wait or linger before or after a session.

  • Our hours of operation during Phase 1 will be 6am-6pm during the week and 8am-10am on the weekends for private or semi-private sessions. 

 

WEARING OF MASKS 

  •  All clients and instructors MUST wear a mask while entering and exiting the building. Colorado guidelines require masks to be worn in locations where social distancing is difficult to maintain. Since we have created appropriate social distance workout spaces within our facility, clients may take their masks off once the workout begins. Clients are welcome to wear masks while working out. We do have concerns about how this will impact breathing during workouts and will be open to feedback as we figure this out after reopening. For more details, see https://covid19.colorado.gov/mask-guidance

 

CLEANING AND SANITIZING

  • We will post signage for employees and clients outlining good hygiene and safety measures being taken. 

  • While working out at Impact, all trainers and members will be asked to gather all equipment needed for the workouts and stage it in a designated area to prevent mixing equipment before it is sanitized.

  • All equipment will be cleaned and sanitized before and after each session. 

  • The entire facility will be cleaned and sanitized at the end of each day.

 

 

PHASE 2:

 

The next phase will be individuals working out on their own, small group training and small group fitness classes. We will wait for more guidelines from the State as to when these will be allowed to resume.

  • Small group training and classes will have a limited number of participants. Those numbers are still to be determined. 

  • You will be required to sign up ahead of time on the MindBody or Impact app and reserve your spot. When the class has reached its maximum capacity, you will be required to sign up for a different class. 

  • We will continue to monitor how many people are entering the building at any given time so we stay below the restrictions. 

  • We will have areas taped off to designate adequate spacing between trainers/members as to ensure that distance is kept while working out in the facility. 

  • While working out at Impact, all trainers and members will be asked to gather all equipment needed for the workouts and stage it in a designated area to prevent mixing equipment before it is sanitized.

  • All equipment will be cleaned and sanitized before and after each session. 

  • The entire facility will be cleaned and sanitized at the end of each day.

 

PHASE 3:

 

We do not have dates or guidelines on opening up Impact to its normal capacity. We imagine this last phase to allow for larger classes and more people in the building. We will continue to wait for guidance from the state and county on how to safely proceed with this phase. 

 

 

WAYS THAT YOU CAN HELP US

  • If you are not ready to come back to the gym or don’t feel comfortable at this time, we totally understand. We will continue to offer virtual classes on our Impact Members Facebook page.

  •  You can also communicate with your trainer about virtual training or outside training.

  • If you are feeling sick or have had any symptoms of COVID-19 within the last 2 weeks, please stay home and help us protect our staff and community. 

  • If you have tested positive for COVID-19, or have knowingly come into close contact with someone who has, we ask that you do not come to Impact for 14 days or until you’ve tested negative for COVID-19.

  • We know that a big part of your experience at Impact is the social component. We love hanging out with you guys in the entryway between classes, however this will no longer be permitted. Clients may only enter the building (through the front door) 5 minutes prior to the start of their session and must exit immediately after the session ends. If weather is permitting and clients would like to chat while waiting for a session to start or after the session ends, you can do that outside, while maintaining 6 feet and with your mask on. 

  • As we all hope to start seeing each other again soon, it is very important that everyone continues to take personal responsibilities and precautions to protect yourselves and our Impact team and community. 

  • There is not a single path for ramping up and we know this is a work in progress. We have the utmost confidence that with comprehensive planning underway and with each of us doing our part, we can take these initial steps together safely.

  • Please be patient with us as we navigate so many unknowns and first times. Our hope is to create a seamless reopening, however we know there will be bumps in the road. We are completely open to making any and all adjustments necessary as those bumps arrive.

  •  Thank you for your continued patience, support and adaptability. Further information and dates will be shared as soon as it becomes available.
