From Our friends at NFC:
After 3 months of being closed, we are happy to tell you that we will be opening Monday June 15th with limited hours. We will be open Monday-Friday 8am-8pm, Saturday and Sunday from 10-4. We will continue the 24/7 access in the near future.
We are making this decision because we know that a healthy community is needed right now, and exercise and positivity at our club is a beacon of hope for many of our citizens, myself included.
However, because Covid-19 is still here, we will need to take more precautions to keep our club safe and healthy.
We ask that you follow the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) guidelines while we take on this new challenge together.
The CDC states, “based on currently available information and clinical expertise, older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions might be at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19.” If you are at risk, please protect yourself.
If you are sick in any way, please stay home. We will monitor each person that comes into the gym, and it is our discretion on whether you will be fit to utilize the facility.
We also ask that all of our members clean each piece of equipment after each use with the many sanitation bottles we will have placed around the gym. Please clean anything that you touch when you are finished, barbells, dumbbells, medicine balls, cardio equipment, mats, weights, heavy bag, jump rope, squat rack, everything. We will do our part and thoroughly sanitize the gym before and after each day.
Please keep 6ft apart from each other. We will have a few treadmills taped off and some equipment staggered so that we are able to follow this guideline.
On the subject of face coverings - the CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) especially in areas of significant community-based transmission. We have situated our club so that each person will be able to keep a distance of 6ft or more. Face coverings are recommended, but not required.
We will have the guidelines posted at the club and will update with any new information that the CDC puts forth.
If your membership is frozen and would like it to resume, please call us at (231) 928-5013 during our staffed hours.
Lastly, I want to personally thank everyone that supported us during this pandemic. Our fitness family is stronger than ever before, and we plan on continuing to build that strength.
