First, we ask that you review our updated Youfit Member Code of Conduct to know what you can expect when you visit us again. There are additional steps that you can take to put your health at the forefront when working out in the gym.

Going Back to the gym

Communities are continuing to lift regulations that had previously temporarily closed all gyms. Heed your local community guidelines when heading back into the gym.

If you have experienced symptoms of COVID-19, if you have been around someone who has been infected, or if you are facing health problems that put you in an at-risk category, you may want to avoid revisiting the gym for the time being. As always, please consult your doctor before beginning a fitness routine. 

Gym Precautions

These days, it isn’t just about having the right form when working out at the gym. You need to make sure that you’re practicing social distancing and cleaning your machines properly to maintain a clean workout setting for yourself and those around you. Luckily, our team is here to help! We have updated our gym layouts to encourage social distancing and we are practicing upgraded disinfecting and sanitization schedules for all spaces in our clubs.

There are additional steps you can take for healthy workouts that include coronavirus gym precautions. Here are some added COVID gym tips to follow for a healthy workout:

  • Keep your distance from others in the gym.
  • Wash your hands often, especially before and after your workout.
  • Consider visiting the gym during slower times of day.
  • Avoid touching your face, especially your nose, mouth, or eyes. 
  • Choose water bottles over the water fountain. If needed, we have water bottles at the front desk for you. 
  • Wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth. 
  • Wipe down your equipment or weights before and after use.
  • Shower at home following your workout.

Getting Back into the Swing of Healthy Workouts

Now that you know how to enjoy a good workout, it’s time to get back in the swing of things! Consider starting out with a 30-minute workout that brings a full-body workout in a short timeframe. As always, remember to drink plenty of water when working out and follow the updated gym tips.
