From the General Manager | August 2020 Facility Updates

Like many industries both small and large, the fitness industry has been drastically impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent economic suppression. At the time of writing this statement, Performance Health & Fitness has been open for exactly 10 weeks since the shutdown to slow the spread of the virus. While we’ve certainly had challenges and will likely continue to experience bumps along the way, we’ve been encouraged by our members, clients, and staff over the last several weeks.

 

Although we’re seeing nearly 50% fewer weekly visits than our average pre-shutdown average, we have seen approximately a 25% increase in weekly visits since June 1st. Additionally, we have been very pleased with everyone’s level of adherence and patience with our screening, sanitation, and distancing protocols. We’re also encouraged by the participation in our virtual membership options and at-home programming we are providing. They have served as a great tool for us to stay connected to many of our members who have chosen not to return to in-person fitness classes or training at this time.

 

Our staff should also be commended for stepping up as needed and providing guidance and leadership where needed. While we do understand that there are always areas that can be improved, we want to thank you all for helping us maintain safety standards here at Performance.

 

Currently, we do not anticipate major changes to our operational hours, services, or programming in the coming weeks. We will continue to promote distancing both in and outside of our facilities, as well as continue to improve our cleaning effectiveness and consistency. We also encourage all to adhere to personal hygiene standards as well as the use of PPE, including masks and/or shields. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, we will continue to ask that all of our members, guests, and staff to please 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.

 

We certainly appreciate your patience as we navigate the ever-changing business and social environment that we are all encountering. We are hopeful to be able to increase our operational hours, services, and programming in the near future as we continue to strive to recover from some of the changes to our business that have taken place over the past 100 days.

 

As always, please follow our social media and website for the most up to date information about any changes that could be made.

 

Sincerely,

 

Brock Reed
General Manager, Performance health & Fitness

Since joining Performance, I have made huge gains. The process of recovering from knee surgery has been much easier because of the expertise of the Performance staff in helping me get back to full strength. I would recommend this gym to anyone.*

Under the guidance of trainers, I have been able to decrease my 5K time from 28 minutes to under 20 minutes in just 2 years.  I have also lost 30 pounds while increasing strength, endurance and power.*

Training over the last few years at Performance has been the best health decision I have ever made.  Leslie, my current trainer, keeps me on track to stay fit and strong, makes our sessions interesting and challenging, and is always positive, even when I have setbacks.*

“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.”*

“I’m retired and enjoy a full, active life. This is due, in no small part, to the time I spend at Performance. The group classes provide a great workout and lots of variety. Plus, a fun way to meet new friends!”*
