COVID-19 Gym precautions

Feb , 2021 - Gym Update

Thank you for continuing to keep our gym safe and sanitized. Our team works hard to do the same. We appreciate you and all your feedback and solutions are being discussed and actioned daily.

 

In an effort to keep our gym safe for social distancing, we have established new policies and are currently paying very close attention to our membership sales numbers, renewals and cancellations. We are accepting membership requests at this time and will continue to move forward very cautiously. We are NOT allowing any drop-ins at this time.

 

Do not enter the gym if you are sick or experiencing any of the following symptoms:

·     Fever or chills 

·     Cough 

·     Loss of sense of smell or taste 

·     Difficulty breathing

·     Sore throat 

·     Loss of appetite

·     Extreme fatigue or tiredness 

·     Headache 

·     Body aches 

·     Nausea or vomiting

·     Diarrhea

Do not enter the gym if you: 

·     Have travelled outside of Canada within the last 14 days

·     Have been identified by Public Health as a close contact of someone with COVID-19 

·     Have been told to isolate by Public Health

Odyssey Guidelines:

YOU MUST FOB IN AT EVERY VISIT. This is imperative, as we need the names and numbers to ensure we can trace usage if we need to contact you for ANY reason and so we know we are staffing properly to maintain our 24 hour status.

Currently, we have a max capacity of 35 people in the gym at one time. This number is based upon our square footage and in accordance with the health authorities recommendations. 

 

We have two rooms that can only handle eight members at a time - the dumbbell room and the stretch room. In the cardio room you should be spacing yourselves according to the signs posted. 

 

Social distancing is mandatory. If you are working out with people in your bubble it is capped at three people. We are not holding any group training or classes at this time.

We have eight cameras being reviewed daily to make sure we are staying within these guidelines. 

 

Our community and team have been patient and compliant. While there have been some wait times, overall it has been successful. It is important to read the signs at the front, especially if no staff member is present, to ensure we are not at capacity and you have been counted and properly checked in & sanitized.

 

Our vending machine in the lobby uses contactless tap for purchase. Our water bottle fill-up stations are cleaned daily and are safe to use.  

 

We have always expected our members to clean up after themselves and most certainly we need to make sure this is done at every workout station. A light mist with our approved cleaner over dumbbells and plates is efficient. Please wipe down all seats and wherever you put your hands. 

 

Remember to use our lockers or designated shelves for your bags if you must bring them. Keeping them off the gym floor is expected. Lockers are available with your own lock. Always take away what you brought in each visit.

 

Showers, washrooms and change rooms are available for use. Same social distancing rules apply. Staff clean all surfaces daily.

 

Our goal is to continue to be steadfast in our mission to keep our private, members only facility open, safe, clean and friendly.

  

Self-policing is the only way we can have integrity with social distancing and is why we must be diligent with our current policies. 

  

Thank you so much for your support, encouragement and kindness towards staff and members. 

 

You can reach me or the front desk by email or by phone at 250-386-2000 and leave a message. If you need to speak with me directly and confidentially please request so at the above email with your name and number/email and I will be happy to reply.

 

Thank YOU from all of us here at Odyssey!

January 28 , 2021 - Gym Update

While we remain open, masks have been mandated by Dr. Henry inside public indoor spaces. While we wait for clarification on what that means for us, everyone must wear a mask at all times during their time within the Gym. 

We are permitted to have 30 to 35 people inside the Gym. Currently no classes.

 

While not ideal, it’s a small price to pay for our well-being. Thank you for your understanding, and we’ll update you again as soon as we hear more. Your patience is appreciated.

August 1, 2020 - Gym Update

 

Dear Odyssey members,

 

Thank you for continuing to keep our gym safe and clean. Our staff work hard to do the same. We appreciate you, and all your feedback and solutions are being discussed and actioned daily.

 

We have had an influx of new and returning members and would like to be clear about our policies for social distancing, parking, gym etiquette, cleanliness, gymuse, wait times and our plan to keep the gym safe moving into the fall which is traditionally a busy time for our community.

 

Our members vary from people who have been with us for 20+ years and new members who just started, so coming together we are experiencing the usual growing pains from routines being disrupted and our natural instinct to protect our space, to excitement of being part of our community and awesome gym. The emotions are running high and we understand.

 

In an effort to keep our gym safe for social distancing we have established new policies on capping membership sales and drop-in privileges. We are currently paying very close attention to our membership numbers, renewals and cancellations. We are accepting membership requests at this time as well as limiting drop-ins and will be heading into the fall very cautiously.  

 

Presently, we are managing 30 members in the gym at one time. Our community and team have been patient and compliant. While there has been some wait times, overall it has been successful. It is important to read the signs at the front, especially if no staff is present, to be sure we are not at capacity and to ensure your head has been counted and properly checked in.

 

Our goal is to continue to be steadfast in our mission to keep our private, members only facility open, safe, clean and friendly.

 

In order to do so, a few rules apply:

 

  1. Give people space; respect people's bubbles. Be flexible and efficient with your workouts and remember to be kind. We are all here for our well-being and health. Communication with respect always wins.

  2. Enter the gym clean and ready to work out. Use the hand sanitizer, yes, but nothing is better than a thorough hand washing. Keeping your phone use to a minimum during workouts is highly recommended. If you use your phone, you need to wash again. Disinfect your phones as well as your hands. 

  3. Clean up after yourself. This is key and mandatory. You can use the approved and supplied spray cleaner stations with paper towels to clean up sweat and where your body has touched. Spray a fine mist over the dumbbells, weight plates and machines. It will dry and disinfect within 5 minutes and be ready for the next person's use.

  4. Put your equipment away. Rack your weights, put bands, mats and other equipment back to their appropriate place after use and cleaning. This rule is the easiest and the most frustrating for all members and staff alike. We share this house; respect it and its family please. 

  5. Use our lockers or designated shelves for your bags if you must bring them. Keeping them off the gym floor is the desired result. Lockers are available with your own lock during your gym visit. Always take away what you brought.

  6. Showers, washrooms and change rooms are available for use. Same social distancing rules apply. Staff clean all surfaces daily.

 

Self policing is the only way we can have integrity with social distancing and is why we must be diligent with our current policies. We understand that this has been easy for some, but others have been congregating and also disrespecting the 6 foot distance for other clients and staff members as well as leaving weights to be picked up and cleaned by others which is just adding more risk. We know we are all happy to see each other and want to catch up, but it’s simply not time yet.

 

We ask that you adhere to the new norm and continue giving feedback and helping with solutions. We are all in this together and we all love our gym. So let’s take care of our space and each other.

 

Thank you so much for your support, your encouragement and kindness towards staff. You can reach me or the front desk by email (info@odyssey24hrgym.com) or by phone (250-386-2000) and leave a message. If you need to speak with me directly and confidentially please request so at the above email with your name and number/email and I will be happy to reply.

 

Thank YOU from all of us here at Odyssey!
