Please see below regarding our approach to COVID-19 at CrossFit Undeniable. We’ll be keeping this page updated as we evaluate new information on a daily basis. Follow along here and on Facebook for the latest updates.
As of Sun, 3/15:
- Open for all classes with class caps reduced to 10.
- We’re cancelling CrossFit Kids from March 16-27.
- We ask that parents refrain from bringing kids to the gym from March 16-27.
CrossFit Undeniable family,
As we mentioned in the Facebook Member Group and in an email last week, we’re committed to keeping CrossFit Undeniable open for as long as possible during this outbreak.
Following our email last week, we received many replies from grateful members reinforcing how the gym provides a small piece of sanity during an extraordinarily stressful time. We value being that small release valve.
At the same time, we also have a commitment to you all and our global community to stop the spread of this virus. We take that commitment seriously.
As of right now, we’re continuing with our normal class schedule with the following modifications:
- Class sizes will be limited to 10 people or less.
- Workouts will be modified so they don’t require sharing equipment or any personal contact.
- We’ll be cancelling CrossFit Kids from March 16-27, and we ask that parents refrain from bringing kids to class. For unknown reasons, it appears as though COVID-19 impacts kids differently than adults (milder symptoms, less susceptibility, etc). However, they can still be carriers.
- All equipment will be wiped down and sanitized at the end of every class along with extra cleaning of gym facilities.
- We’ll be sharing “At Home” workouts inside of Triib every day for members. These workouts will only require a weighted backpack, which can be achieved with a bag of sand from Home Depot.
We did not make these decisions lightly. We weighed the pros and cons of each, consulted other gym owners and members, and looked to local, state, and federal policy for guidance.
We understand these decisions also impact our members directly. Local schools and daycare centers are closed meaning kids are at home. The decisions to not allow kids in the gym and close CrossFit Kids were tricky. Kids need to move and get out some energy. Trust me—I have a two-year-old running around my house all day. Ultimately, we felt that this short-term sacrifice was a necessary trade-off for the health of our community.
From our members, we continue to ask the following:
- Continue (or increase!) basic hygiene—wash your hands, take regular showers, wipe down equipment, cover your mouth when you cough/sneeze, etc. The basics can go a long way here!
- Please avoid coming to the gym if you’re feeling sick.
- Wipe down all equipment after use and use hand sanitizer/wash your hands.
- Avoid physical contact with other members. “Air fives” and “Air fist-bumps” will sub for normal celebrations after a workout.
Zach, myself, and the entire coaching staff are discussing our approach to COVID-19 daily, and we welcome feedback to email@example.com. Stay tuned to this thread and our public and private Facebook page for the latest information.
Stay healthy everyone!
Zach and Jeremey
