DECEMBER 23, 2020 UPDATE

 

We understand that outdoor or home exercise can be difficult for many who may be immunocompromised, in particular during winter months in Iowa. Our hope is that we can provide a healthy outlet for those individuals to continue to maintain their health and fitness this winter while creating an environment where they can feel safe to do so.

 

In an effort to accommodate those in our membership family who may be immunocompromised or those who have requested the full use of masks within the facility, Performance Health & Fitness will implement mask required hours during the month of January.

 

These hours will be reserved from 1:30pm-3:30pm each day, Monday through Friday for the duration of the month of January. We will monitor these hours and will review them for any continuation or changes that may take place beyond January 31st.

 

Outside of the hours of 1:30pm-3:30pm Monday through Friday, we will continue to follow the guidance found in the governor’s proclamation which requires of the use of masks/face coverings at indoor businesses with the exception to remove them while actively exercising. We just ask that you please utilize a mask or face covering while entering/exiting the facility and while in any common areas where social distancing may be difficult such as locker room, stairwell, and lobby areas.

 

As always, we ask that all of our members, guests, and staff to stay home if they are symptomatic or believe they may have been exposed to the virus until they have been cleared by their primary care provider.

“I am a competitive cyclist and have been in personal training at Performance for 6 years. The best part about the trainers is that they know our medical histories very well.  Leslie is great at modifying a training session specifically to each individual person’s limitations so as to avoid injury.”*
