(SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.) – After a challenging few months Mountainside Fitness is pleased to welcome guests back and reopening on Monday, May 18th. All 18 fitness centers will re-open for normal business hours with enhanced safety procedures and protocols to ensure guests health and safety.
The new changes and guidelines implemented include the following:
All staff have been trained in Covid-19.
Sanitizing stations will be available throughout the club including the front desk.
Staff will continuously disinfect frequently touched areas throughout the day with CDC-approved disinfectant.
Cardio equipment will be spaced accordingly. Every other machine will be turned off.
Towel cleaning temperatures have been increased to 150 degrees.
Group Fitness classes will have decreased capacities and will be available for pre-booking 12 hours prior to class. Additionally, more classes will be added to the schedules to offer guests more options.
All employees will have their temperature checked prior to each shift and will be required to wash their hands every hour. Disposable face masks will also be available to employees.
Children entering childcare will have their temperature checked and any child with a temperature above 99.9 degrees will not be permitted.
Mountainside Fitness will also continue its touchless service and check-in at the front desk, childcare and the M Cafe.
Guests will not be charged any memberships dues until June 1st.
Wanting to do its part both financially and responsibly, Mountainside Fitness additionally made a $100,000 donation to the Arizona Coronavirus Relief Fund several weeks ago. The locally owned and operated fitness center also partnered with Patients Choice to offer a series of antibody testing sites for several weeks in its parking lots.
Tom Hatten, CEO and Founder of Mountainside Fitness said the company is proud to have made the donation, offer the test sites and now re-open with enhanced safety protocols.
“We closed our doors for two months and during that time we contributed to the fight against this virus by offering antibody tests sites and donating $100,000 to the state’s Coronavirus relief fund. We’ve now taken the final step by incorporating the highest level of sanitization practices into our daily routine at all 18 locations of Mountainside Fitness. Under these new enhanced protocols, we are proud to re-open our doors and welcome guests who would like to come back and work out,” said Tom Hatten, founder and CEO of Mountainside Fitness.
