We are happy to announce that we have FINALLY been given the authorization from our government to open our doors. The official reopening date will be Thursday June 22nd at 12h00. The hours of operation for the first two weeks will be 5am to 10pm, there after we hope to return to our 24 hours schedule. Visits are on a first come, first serve while respecting the club capacity.
Gym-Max Gatineau has been part of the community for over 25 years. During this time our focus has been on creating an exceptional member experience. Gym-Max has always been known for its superior cleaning practices and COVID-19 will be no exception! We are committed to a caring and safe approach to reopening our club moving forward.
Measures will be implemented that will ensure your safety. Some of these measures will include:
• Barrier shield at reception.
• Increase physical distancing and maintaining a safe club capacity.
• Increase deep-cleaning practices.
• Provide our staff with safety training on new procedures and cleaning practices.
• Increase hygiene options for staff and clients
In addition to the safety measures added, the following will be temporarily out of service:
• Group Classes
• Drinking Fountain
• Some cardiovascular equipment to ensure safe distancing.
We believe that those who are proactive through attending a gym or are involved in other fitness related activities put themselves at an advantage and therefore reduce the risk of illness and disease. For those members who are at an increased risk due to age or those with pre-existing medical conditions, you might want to delay your return to the gym. In choosing to return to the gym you fully acknowledge the risks associated. Gym-Max will impart safety measures and kindly remind members of these guidelines; however, it is up to members to respect the rules in order to create a safe environment for all.
All memberships will start to be RE-activated as of June 22nd, 2020 and billing will continue as usual. For those who had pre-paid memberships, a procedure will be put into place to extend memberships for any time lost. Once again, please consider offering all or some portion of your already paid fees to be retained by Gym-Max as a donation. Any contribution will greatly help the club and be deeply appreciated. Otherwise, we will honor all dues paid and extend your membership accordingly.
We are excited to have our Gym-Max family back! It has been a LONG 99 days!
