COVID-19 SAFETY PROCEDURES

Help Keep Everyone at Recursive SAFE by following these Safety Procedures:

  • First and foremost, do not come to the gym if you start to feel sick or show any symptoms of disease.
  • Class sizes will be smaller and capped at 10 athletes plus 1-2 Coaches. People will be required to sign up for class ahead of time through ZenPlanner. No exceptions. If you are not registered for class, you will not be allowed to participate.
  • No chalk will be used at this time due to the sharing of the chalk bucket. People may NOT bring their own chalk either – it is a perfect tool for trapping germs on the equipment.
  • We will not have any Open Gym time because we can not monitor the equipment cleaning process.
  • We will program to use a minimal amount of equipment and to avoid sharing any equipment. We have spaces marked out on the floor for each person.
  • People will only be allowed to show up 5 minutes before class and must leave right after class to avoid cross over traffic in the gym.
  • Classes will be 60 minutes long. We will spread out our class times to accommodate traffic and cleaning between classes.
  • Athletes will be required to wash/sanitize hands before and after classes.
  • Athletes will be required to wipe down all equipment after use using the cleaning supplies provided below.
  • People will be required to bring their own filled water bottle. No disposable water cups will be available. The water fountains will not be available for use at this time.
  • Substitute high fives for air fives.
  • The gym will be closed on Sunday for a weekly deep cleaning.
  • We will not be accepting Drop Ins/Visitors at this time.
  • You must wear a mask into and out of the gym and in the common areas. You are also required to wear one while working out.

Some Tips for Wearing Masks While Working Out:

  • Bring 2 masks. One will get wet/sweaty from working out and it will be more difficult to breath through. Plus, it will be more pleasant to walk out of class with a dry mask on.
  • The disposable masks are easier to breathe through, but they get wet faster (and then are more difficult to breathe through.)
  • The safety protocol calls for a cloth face covering (plastic face shields don’t qualify). Consider trying a bandana instead of a form fitting facial mask.
  • Looser masks may let you feel like it’s easier to breathe, but they also get sucked into your mouth as you breathe heavy. A tighter fitting mask will move around less as you are jumping and moving around.
  • You may have to lower the intensity of your workout until you get used to the mask – be patient and understanding with yourself.
  • If you need to stop and catch your breath – do that!

Cleaning Checklist:

Anything that you have used or touched today should get properly cleaned by spraying the area directly and letting it sit for a minute or 2 before wiping down with a fresh, clean towel.

Any monitors should get cleaned by spraying the rag and then wiping it down, please do not spray the monitors directly (Rowers, Bikes, Ski Ergs).

  • PVC
  • Barbell (collars and bar)
  • Plates (the black rubber part plus the inside metal ring)
  • Barbell Clips
  • Rowers – seat, handles, rail, foot plates, monitor
  • Bike – seat, handles, knobs, monitor
  • Kettlebell/Dumbbell (the handles and the entire thing)  
  • Any other equipment used – wall balls, jump ropes, slam balls, boxes
  • Whiteboard
  • Marker

    Again, the safety of everyone in the gym (staff and members) is our highest priority. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
