The health and safety of you, our community, and our team is our #1 priority.

We are using the CDC as guidance in forming our policies, but will make decisions that best serve the needs of our community and provide the safest environment possible during COVID-19.
We take our COVID policies seriously and appreciate everyone's cooperation as we find our way through this challenging time.

We've got ANSWERS to your QUESTIONS!
Q: What are the policies for visiting the gym when returning to Maine from out of state or international travel?
A: We follow all of the current Maine CDC Guidelines for quarantine and/or testing when returning to Maine from Travel. More information on the current state requirements can be found HERE.
If you have traveled out of state you may return to the gym under the following conditions:
Q: Will a warm up and cool down be included in the training session?
A: Yes it will! Feel free to arrive 15 minutes early to perform your SMR - foam rolling. Then the trainer will take you through a dynamic warm up as part of the 45 minute training session.
Q: Can I continue my cool down after the training session is over?
A: We encourage you to stay after your training session to go through a short cool down. Please keep your mask on at all times and maintain distance to the best of your ability.
Q: Where can I put my mask when I take it off?
A: At the present time masks must be worn during the training session.
Q: When can I remove my mask?
A: At the present time you must wear your mask while in your training session. I will re-evaluate this policy as transmission levels decrease and children under 12 years of age are able to be vaccinated.
Q: Can I stop wearing my mask to the gym once I am fully vaccinated?
A: At this time you are still required to wear your mask even if you are fully vaccinated. Unfortunately, we are seeing people who are vaccinated test positive for COVID-19, and as an added precaution to our community and to our loved ones at home I am asking that masks be worn at all times.
Q: Are there masks that you recommend for use when exercising?
A: Yes, there are several masks that we have tested and like for use when exercising:
Q: Do I have to choose INDOOR or LIVEStream Training Sessions?
A: No - we want to keep this as flexible as possible for you. In our group training program, you may attend any of these sessions - just sign up as always via Pike13 with a 1-hour notice.
Note: All Early Bird Sessions require enrollment 8 hours in advance so that the trainers have time to prepare for you.
**AT THE PRESENT TIME LIVESTREAM TRAINING IS NOT ON OUR SCHEDULE, BUT I DO ANTICIPATE IT RETURNING AS WE APPROACH THE FALL AND WINTER MONTHS. STAY TUNED.
Q: Do I need to buy new shoes to wear indoors?
A: No - we just want you to wear clean indoor shoes. This policy existed before COVID and helps us keep our gym clean. You can clean an "old" pair of shoes and dedicate them to the gym going forward.
Q: What if I forget my indoor sneakers?
A: Please thoroughly clean the soles of your sneakers so that you don't track dirt into the gym.
Q: How do I know that the equipment I'm using is clean?
A: Since the start of this pandemic we have learned that COVID-19 is not spread on surfaces. However, we do have sanitizer available around the gym, so if it helps you feel safer please feel free to clean your equipment before you use it.
Q: Can I use the showers?
A: Yes. Showers are open without any restrictions. They are cleaned routinely by professional cleaners. We have towels available for you to place on the floor to stand on.
Q: What if I have seasonal allergies that are causing me to have a cough or sore throat? Am I not allowed at the gym?
A: If you have symptoms that are consistent with COVID-19 please consult with your healthcare professional about getting tested for COVID-19. If your symptoms are consistent with allergies please be mindful of washing your hands after touching your face and wear your mask at all times.
