We are still in phase 1 of re-opening, we ask for your patience, kindness, and cooperation as we work through these new policies handed down from Governor Scott. There has been a lot for us to figure out in a short amount of time. Please keep in mind that these changes are temporary and fluid and will be adjusted as restrictions are lifted. The health and safety of our members is always our top priority.
Please reserve your workout time online at marketplacefitness.com. No walk ins will be allowed.
At this time, we are offering 45-minute workout blocks that will start on the hour. This will give us an opportunity to clean in between groups of members. Timeliness is very important. To make it fair for all members we ask that you only sign up for one block per day.
During this phase we will also be abbreviating our hours. 7am-6pm Monday- Friday. Weekends 8am-1pm.
Please stay 6 feet apart. We are following strict social distancing in the gym and ask that you adhere to the designated signs and markers. During Phase 1 we are only allowed to run at 25% capacity. This means only seven people in the Weight Room at one time, seven people in the Cardio Room, and four people in the Group Fitness Studio. To help maximize space, we have converted the Group Fitness Studio into a smaller weight room with lighter weights. (2-50lbs), and benches. Keep this in mind when you make a reservation.
Masks must be worn at all times. The only time it may be removed is when you are engaged in strenuous exercise. In which case pull your mask down, catch your breath, and put mask back on over your nose and mouth.
We understand that they can be very difficult to wear while working out, but they do minimize the risk for everyone, and it is only temporary
We will be following all cleaning guidelines set by the CDC and state authorities. We have increased cleaning on all touch surfaces in the facility but will need members to do their part. You will be responsible for wiping down everything before and after use.
For members protection we are required to perform pre-screening checks for all our staff and members. This will consist of a questionnaire and possible temperature check. If you are experiencing symptoms or not feeling well, please stay at home.
Please come dressed and ready to work out as locker room use is limited. To adhere to social distancing and 25% capacity guidelines, only 3 people will be allowed in the locker rooms at one time, always staying 6 feet apart. We will be offering shower use to those who need it.If possible, please continue to shower and/or change at home to leave the showers for those who cannot.Please shower and change as fast as possible. This means applying make-up or performing other after shower activities elsewhere.Members will be responsible for sanitizing the shower stall after use with provided sanitizing spray. Locker rental and day locker usage are available, but we are limiting use to only those who need them. Saunas are not currently available. Please remember to bring a water bottle as the bottle filling station will be available, but the water fountain will be turned off.
Due to capacity limitations we will not be offering classes in the studio. We are excited to be offering outdoor classes (such as bootcamp, yoga, cardio, and circuit) at Battery Park and live classes on Zoom. You can make a reservation for classes online at marketplacefitness.com.
