Gym Re-Opening Phase 1
Welcome back to SAC & HHF!
We’ve missed our tremendous members so much and can’t wait to see you all! I think we can all agree this is the most unique and challenging time in our country‘s recent history. I always look for silver linings and during this I have found many to hold onto and I hope you have as well.
It’s not something most of us in the business world have done before and what a challenge it is! With the limitations placed upon us, it has been particularly challenging and as much as we just wanna bust out and say “We are back 100%!”, unfortunately at this time we are not able to. We sincerely want to thank all of our members for your loyalty and the many many messages and well wishes we have received throughout the few months that we’ve been closed. It has meant the world to us.
I look forward to getting the process of re-opening started. It is not the way I necessarily would’ve planned it, but I will be a good soldier and follow the guidelines the state has mandated.
Beginning June 1:
SAC & HHF will be staffed from 7am to 6pm M-Th and Sat 8am-12pm so that our ‘current members’ can visit us to discuss the following safety measures described below as well as the details of what WILL and WILL NOT be available to you during Phase 1 of our reopening. We will not be providing details or answering questions via social media or email so please visit us to find out more regarding the specifics of what is being allowed so we can help you better understand our ‘Old Normal with Adjustments’ as they are very specific and will be better explained in person. Additionally this gives us an opportunity to show you the modified layout of the facilities as well as the foot-traffic flow.
Personal Trainers will begin 1-on-1 training by appointment during the first week of June. Any member wishing to have a complimentary Personal Training Session with one of our many amazing Trainers can email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com to secure one of the limited sessions available. These sessions will be filled on a first come first serve basis and will be a great opportunity to learn something new and get off on the right foot! . Our group exercise classes will remain virtual through Zoom for at least the first week of June before we launch our limited in-house class schedule. Silver Sneakers specifically will stay on Zoom until further notice.
June 8th is our target date to have some normalcy regarding workouts, pool etc. We can’t wait!
