FitLife Reopening Plans and Guidelines

First and foremost, we hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. We are happy to let you know that we are preparing to welcome you back to FitLife! Of course, we understand that you may have questions about how COVID-19 will change the way we operate. After careful consideration and much preparation, we are implementing a carefully planned and phased approach to reopening FitLife’s doors while following CDC, state, and local guidance to protect our clientele, staff, and our community. Please see a summary below of the actions we are taking to help ensure we are lowering COVID-19 risk as much as possible to keep you safe, while also allowing you to enjoy your fitness center membership.

The health and safety of our patrons and team remains our highest priority. We have completed a thorough cleaning of our entire facility and look forward to welcoming you back! 

 

CLEANING PRACTICESOur approach to proper disinfection, operation, and maintenance

·         All team members have received training related to enhanced cleanliness and sanitization policies and procedures

·         Readily available disinfectant spray and gym wipes required to be used by members after use of equipment

SOCIAL/PHYSICAL DISTANCING AND CAPACITYHow we can workout together again safely

·         Practicing and encouraging social distancing by keeping members 6 feet away from others

·         Visual cues and markings provided in the group exercise studio, cardio area, spin studio, pool area, and elsewhere throughout the facility to maintain proper distancing

·         Some fitness equipment may be marked as temporarily closed to allow for spacing

·         Increased spacing between some equipment to allow for appropriate social distancing

·         Continuous monitoring of club capacity during high attendance times to comply with occupancy guidelines and capacity limitations

 

COMMUNITY SAFETYEnhanced provisions to keep members safe

·         Bring your own water bottle – drinking fountains will be closed, however bottle fillers will remain available to refill your own reusable water bottle

·         Our complimentary towel service will be temporarily suspended. You are welcome to bring your own towel for your personal use.

·         Avoid unnecessary contact by checking in using your key fab or digital keytag on the FitLife app

·         Constant promotion of healthy hygiene practices, such as encouraging all patrons and staff to wash and sanitize their hands frequently, avoid touching their faces, keep 6 feet from other people, cover coughs and sneezes, and wearing face masks upon entering and moving throughout the facility.

·         Stay home if you are sick or have symptoms such as a fever, cough, or shortness of breath

 

OPERATIONAL UPDATESKeeping you in the know

Now more than ever it is essential to prioritize your physical and mental health! Help boost your immune system by getting at least 30 minutes of exercise a day at FitLife, eat a nutrient-dense diet, get at least 7-8 hours of sleep a night, and spend some time outdoors to boost your vitamin D levels! We have missed seeing you and supporting you along your health and fitness journey. We look forward to being together again! Due to the ever-changing nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, we may need to adapt our policies and procedures related to operational guidelines. We will continue to update you as necessary. Stay healthy, and see you soon!

 

 

Facility Information Related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

To our Valued Members and Patients:

Although our Fitness Center is currently closed, our Physical Therapy Department remains OPEN. Please contact the Physical Therapy Department directly with inquiries or for scheduling at 215-753-9034. All patients entering the facility for their scheduled appointments must be wearing a mask or face covering.


The Fitness Center remains closed. In accordance with Governor Tom Wolf's state reopening plan, the fitness center is not permitted to reopen until Philadelphia County reaches the "green phase". We remain committed to the safety and good health of our members during this challenging time. All member inquiries regarding current memberships will be addressed. We appreciate your understanding. Please be sure to check out our online group exercise classes on Zoom (see the schedule below!), 30-minute Workouts on Facebook Live, and virtual one-on-one personal training sessions! Continue to check back here for updates regarding the reopening of the fitness center. We hope you and your families stay well, and we look forward to seeing you back here again soon!

Our Physical Therapy Department is open. FitLife Physical Therapy is considered a life-sustaining business under the Governor's current Order. As part of the guidance for this Order, it is advised that it is allowable for individuals to leave their residence to complete tasks essential to maintaining their health and safety, or the health and safety of their family or household member, such as visiting a health care professional, such as our physical therapists. We have taken measures to thoroughly clean and disinfect the facility during our recent closure, and we are committed to maintaining a high level of standards for daily processes and procedures related to ensuring our space is safe and clean for our patients and staff. FitLife team members will be wearing masks and gloves while they are in the facility and will be disinfecting all equipment after each patient and mulitiple times throughout the day. 

Our Physical Therapy hours of operation will be adjusted during this time:

Monday - Thursday 7:00am-6:00pm
Friday 7:00am-5:00pm

Prior to patient appointments, all patients will be prescreened for symptoms of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) by phone. When patients arrive for appointments, they must enter through the main facility entrance from the parking lot. There will be strict guidelines displayed in the lobby as a self-guided screening for patients to follow before making their way downstairs to the physical therapy department. Patients can expect to mandatorily answer 5 screening questions:
  1. Have you traveled outside of the U.S. in the last 30 days?
  2. Do you have a fever?
  3. Do you have a cough?
  4. Are you experiencing shortness of breath?
  5. Have you been directly exposed to anyone that has tested positive for COVID-19?

If one answers "yes" to any of these questions, they will not be permitted to proceed and must leave. If one answers "no" to every question, the patient will be directed to wash and sanitize their hands, and put on a pair of gloves before proceeding to check in for their physical therapy appointment.
