I'm so proud of Maine and how well we are doing in the fight against Corona Virus! While there is no doubt that we still have a long road ahead, and we MUST remain diligent as a community as we continue to prevent the spread of this disease, I do believe that we can safely begin including INDOOR training sessions for those of you who are ready.
I am putting the final touches on the schedule adjustments and plan to shift about 9 (out of 27) outdoor training sessions throughout the week to INDOORS and I'm looking to convert only 3 (out of 34) LIVEStream Sessions during the week to INDOORS. I have already added an INDOOR option at 10am on Saturdays starting THIS WEEK!
The INDOOR format will be the same as the LIVEStream and OUTDOOR Sessions. They will remain 45 minutes in length and include a warm up and cool down. **Please bring indoor sneakers for sessions inside the gym**
INDOOR Sessions will be limited to 5 participants in order to maintain recommended distancing, so be sure to sign up early or add yourself to the waitlist if already full.
It is important to me that you continue to have choices in the training formats available to you and that these adjustments don't impact your training schedule.
I have also been working with my landlords on additional safety precautions as I prepare to bring training sessions indoors. I have already upgraded the filters in the HVAC system to help trap particles that may be carrying the virus. Additionally, many businesses are opting to add UV sanitation devices to the HVAC system. I'm including a photo an article that was published in the July 9th issue of the New York Times talking about these modifications. We are expected to have this upgrade completed in this building this week.
There is still A LOT that is unknown about this virus, and I do not know to what extent these UV systems will help to minimize risk, but I do think that anything we can do to help the cause is worth doing. However, it does NOT replace our need to maintain good practices while at the gym together - wearing masks before and after our training sessions, cleaning equipment before and after use, washing our hands frequently, avoiding contact with our hands and face, wearing indoor sneakers while at the gym, etc. I appreciate all of your efforts in following these necessary protocols and am very confident in our ability to keep each other healthy & safe during this unusual time.
You will be seeing some scheduling adjustments shortly, so take a look and let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to seeing some of you INDOORS, and continuing to see many of you via LIVEStream and OUTDOORS!
Have a great day!
