I've had quite a few people say to me, "I’m not sure I want to come back to the gym yet. What should I do when you reopen?" My answer? Return when you're ready and if you're not, we're going to keep coaching you at home.
Not everyone is ready to return to the gym. That's OK! While we have been given the green-light to open our doors, all of us still have to make our own personal risk management decisions. Everyone has the right mitigate their own risk.
Heck, not all of our coaches are ready to return to the gym. With full time work-from -home jobs and full time families, the double full-time obligations are damn hard to manage.
We will continue to remotely coach anyone who wants to stay home. None of us are at the gym anyway on Tuesdays and Thursdays so we're all still working out at home at least twice per week.
To make sure everyone is safe and comfortable at the gym we have limited our operational capacity to 8 people per training sessions.
You must enroll in a training session. If your name is not on our roster you can't come in the gym. You can enroll via the Pike13 client app. Click on the blue buttons below to install the Pike13 client app on your phone.
The App will let you know how many spaces remain for each training session.
We need to know who's attending a specific training session because we are personally setting up your workout stations.
You are assigned to a freshly sanitized 6 x 8 foot station (that's 48 sqft per person) that has a place for you to put your water bottle, your phone and any other personal gear you need. Your station has a kit with a whiteboard, 2 WB pens, a bottle of hand sanitizer, a bottle of liquid hand chalk, a 1 inch band, a foam roller, a PVC pipe, a bunch of paper towels and a bottle of disinfectant.
All of the equipment you need for the workout is set-up at your workout station. Yesterday we had plyo boxes and wall balls set up for each individual. Tomorrow we will have barbells and bumper plates laid out at each station. Your 6 foot wide station is set 3 feet apart from your nearest neighbor. With all of your equipment in your own personal orbit, you never have to leave your personal station, unless, of course, it's a running day:) Even then, we have set up the flow of the gym so that you can easily keep 6 feet (and more!) physical distance from everyone in the gym.
When the weather permits, we can open both of the big bay doors and make it feel like we're outside. We can even take equipment outside!
After each session you sanitize everything you touched and your coach sanitizes the floor.
At the end of each day the coach disinfects everything including door handles and light switches. We put all of the day's equipment away, disinfecting as we go, and lay out all of the equipment for the next day's session.
We are ready for you when you're ready to return. How do you know when you're ready? You must calculate your own risk to benefit analysis. We have done as much as we can to make the gym a safe place for everyone. No matter if you want to continue to stay home or head to the gym, we are here to make sure you're sweaty, safe and happy.
