SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING COVID-19

Update Posted: 11/16/2020

New COVID Restrictions

To the Members of Monte Fitness Center:

 

As you may well know, Washington State has issued renewed restrictions on businesses, including fitness centers, through Demember 14th in response to COVID-19. At the writing of this letter, the Governor’s website does not list a proclamation corresponding to the restrictions, so we are assuming a formal proclamation will align with the restriction listed in media releases. While these restrictions are certainly not the news we were hoping for, we have determined that complaining or debating will not move us forward in a productive way. Rather we have tried to get compliant, imaginative and resourceful. With that view, we would like to share the following.

 

Monte Fitness Center will close at 8pm tonight and will not be accessible to members as a fitness center. Access keys will be turned off.

 

We view Monte Fitness Center as a community resource and certainly recognize the abundance of health and wellness benefits that come with a fitness routine. In an effort to continue to provide fitness opportunities for our members, we are offering the following.

 

Access to FitnessOnDemand through the FLEX App. This resource is currently included as part of your membership and provides access to hundreds of fitness classes through your phone, tablet or computer. If you do not yet have access to FLEX, please text Garrett at 206-550-8423 and he will share a link to be able to sign up at no cost. We intend to build on this option by sending out recommended classes through email and social media several times each week.

 

Small equipment will be made available for home workouts. Tuesday the 17th, we will be at Monte Fitness Studio from 5 to 8pm with the loanable equipment including dumbbells, plates and mats. Additionally we will have a number of resistance bands that we are happy to give to members who can put them to good use. During this equipment pick up, only one household will be allowed in the studio at a time, so please bring a warm jacket and patience in case you need to wait a bit outside. Also, since our medicine ball inventory is low, we can offer first-use borrowing to a limited number of members. In this case, the medicine ball will be shipped directly to you with the understanding that you will return it to Monte Fitness as soon as the restrictions are over. Please text Garrett (206-550-8423) if you would like to take advantage of this option.

 

We will convert our main gym space to an exercise based hourly rental space. This option will be limited to only one household and no more than 4 people at a time. If you are interested in renting the space (currently the MFC member rate is planned at $0.01 per hour) please email Garrett at garrett@montefitnesscenter.com for more details and limitations.

 

If the above options do not meet your membership expectations, there are options to pause your membership payment or extend your prepaid membership. Please email Garrett for more details.

 

We truly hope that you and yours are healthy and well. Our members are the best part of Monte Fitness Center and we deeply appreciate your past and on-going support.

 

Again you can reach Garrett by text at 206-550-8423 or email at garrett@montefitnesscenter.com.

Update Posted: 6/28/20

Required Masks, Exercise, & MFC

 

As you all know, on Friday, June 26th Governor Inslee’s required face covering rule went into effect.  We have received numerous questions and opinions regarding this requirement and cancelled classes at the end of last week to try and grasp what this means for health and Monte Fitness.

 

We looked through the fine print and found an exception for face masks while exercising…I have included it below:

 

Individuals may remove their face coverings in a public setting while engaged in indoor exercise activities provided that the distance of at least 6 feet is maintained from non-household individuals.

 

What does this mean for Monte Fitness Center:

 

  • Your face covering must be on when:

    • Entering the facility, whether the main gym or to attend a class

    • When cleaning equipment

    • When 6ft distance cannot be maintained with non-household individuals

    • When exiting the facility or class

 

  • Your face covering may be pulled down when:

    • When exercising and additional oxygen is required, given that 6ft distance can be maintained.

 

The health and safety of our instructors, staff and members is always our top priority.  We have decided to cancel our classes Monday, June 29th and Tuesday, June 30th in an effort to let our instructors try out the more breathable face coverings we are testing.  We also encourage our members to make sure they have comfortable, breathable face coverings when they come to exercise, whether in the main gym or attending classes. (UPDATE: 8/8/2020-Due to new restrictions, all fitness classes have been discontinued until further notice. CLICK HERE for details.

 

Moving forward:  we don’t know how long this face covering requirement will remain in effect.  Your health and safety are our top priority, so we will continue to be creative in the classes and opportunities we offer to help you achieve your goals.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Update Posted: 6/17/20

With Grays Harbor County entering into phase 3 of the Safe Start plan, MFC has reactivated the 24 hour keys.  Upon entry, please review the signage and follow all instructions and restrictions regarding this phase of opening.  Capacity is limited to 20 people including members and staff.  Thank you for your continued patience, participation, and for being the best part of MFC.

Thank you,
MFC Staff

 

 

Update Posted: 6/6/2020

The Governor’s Office updated the guidance for fitness operations in Phase 2 today.  The document can be found here https://www.governor.wa.gov/sites/default/files/COVID19Phase2FitnessGuidelines.pdf

 

One notable aspect of this update was the removal of the screening requirement that did not allow people over 65 to participate.  With this update, MFC will no longer have an age upper-limit for those signing up for our small group classes.  We know that some of our members will find this news exciting and we are excited to see you.  Yet, we ask that you prioritize your health and the health of others.  If you have concerns or apprehensions, you should wait to join us at MFC.  We have always worked hard to keep a clean facility and those efforts are now at top level in our reopening.  Nonetheless, there is no amount of cleaning that can wholly protect you from virus exposure in a public setting.

 

For next week, class reservations are still happening through staff at MFC or by emailing kellie@montefitnesscenter.com.  The week of June 15th we suspect we may implement some operational changes, so please look for emails or updates on our website.

 

If you have any questions, please email us garrett@montefitnesscenter.com or kellie@montefitnesscenter.com

 

Thanks again for being the best part of MFC – regardless of age!!

 

Garrett and Kellie

Last week we learned of two major changes in the regulated response to the COVID crisis.  First, phase 2 of the recovery plan was expanded to include limited use of fitness centers.  Second, Grays Harbor County was approved to move into phase 2.  We now plan to reopen Monte Fitness Center Wednesday, May 27th under limited operations and restricted use.  We are excited to see some of you again and to be able to exercise with a bit of social interaction.  In order to do so, we must strive to fully comply with the reopening guidance, which, as of now, we understand to include:

  • Access by appointment only.  All access to MFC must be scheduled ahead of time.  More detail later in this letter.

  • No use by high-risk individuals, which includes all members 65 and over, as well as members with serious underlying medical conditions like chronic lung disease, moderate to severe asthma and people who are immunocompromised.

  • Access only through personal training or small classes.No more than 5 members will be allowed in any one session.

  • Screening of all staff and members to include having been diagnosed with COVID-19 (have not recovered or are still within the required 14-day quarantine), had symptoms of COVID-19 (within the last 24 hours), had contact with a person that has or is suspected to have COVID-19 (within the last 14 days) , or a fever (within the last 48 hours).

  • No use of showers

  • No childcare or use of child area

  • No towel service (you must bring your only towel with you)

  • Safety review prior to each session or class.

  • Sign in and consent with each session or class.

In effort to facilitate these requirements and create access for our members we plan to:

  • Host 8-12 classes each weekday and a couple on Saturdays.  A class schedule can be viewed on our website. To sign up for a class, send a request for class type and then preference for days and times to kellie@montefitnesscenter.com.  You will be notified when you are scheduled for a class.  Spaces will be assigned by the order the requests are received, with some subjective limits for any one member taking multiple classes.We will strive to offer at least 50 classes each week.

  • Add a new class – General Weightlifting.  This will be the most frequent class and will be intended for those who can self-select their workout, safely use equipment and only need occasional guidance from staff.  Cardio equipment will also be available during this class.

  • Limit the number of classes any one member can participate in to increase opportunity for members.

  • Initially have class sign up/reservations through email requests.  Later we will use the Mindbody platform (similar to how cycling classes have worked).

  • Limit class time to no more than 45 minutes to provide time to clean and social distance between classes.

  • Move, or remove, some equipment to promote the required social distancing.

  • Make necessary adjustments to class schedule weekly, unless a more urgent response is needed.

  • Limit facility access to staff and members who are participating in a scheduled class – this also applies to children since we are not allowed to provide childcare or access to the kid area.
