From the General Manager | September 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. 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/months.

 

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.

 

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.

 

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
