CrossFit Serenity in Hopkinsville announced its reopening plan in an email Wednesday. Gyms are allowed to reopen on June 1 under Gov. Andy Beshear’s Health at Work plan.
The gym will divide its space into athlete squares. Each Square will be a minimum of 10 feet by 10 feet to allow each athlete a minimum of 100 square feet. Squares will be appropriately spaced to maintain social distancing protocols.
Each square will also contain all the equipment that the athlete will need for the class. All equipment needed for the class will be provided in the square.
Members will reserve their square ahead of time. The gym asks that squares are reserved no more than 48 hours in advance.
Attendance for each class will be capped at nine athletes. Classes will run with a shortened time limit to allow necessary cleaning between each class.
On its initial reopening, the gym will not allow children or the elderly inside. Those populations will be allowed inside when the state is in phase 3 of its reopening plan.
Coaches will be required to wear a face mask, per state guidelines. Athletes are encouraged to wear face masks.
The gym will continue to offer virtual and online options to anyone that wants to take advantage of that option.
Social distancing class procedures
The gym asks that athletes come to class dressed, and ready for their workout. Athletes should not enter the building too early for their class.
Athletes will enter the building and report to their reserved square 5 minutes before their reserved class start time.
Upon entering the building athletes will be asked to sanitize their hands via the hand washing station outside the door or via hand sanitizer. There will be no congregating in the lobbies or common spaces.
All personal belongings will remain in the athlete’s square.
The coach of each class will check the temperature of each athlete with a thermometer.
“Athletes with a temperature reading in excess of 100 degrees Fahrenheit will have a second reading taken, and if that reading also exceeds 100 degrees Fahrenheit will be asked to leave the facility and not participate in the class,” the email stated.
The gym will forgo the use of shared chalk. Those who need chalk should bring their own personal supply and not share that supply with others.
