We are looking forward to seeing you back at the fitness Centre. We have been hard at working making changes to the facility to allow you to have a enjoyable workout and keep everyone safe with as few limitations as possible. The fitness centre reopened in June with limited hours and with a limited capacity, for now the fitness classes will remain online via zoom.
To see some of the changes we have made for your safety and security please watch this video outlining the changes.
Step 1 – Read and sign the new Procedures and Policy PDF, that outlines the changes, once we have received this fillable PDF back with your electronic signature we will then reactive your membership and have fitness centre access added to your building access card. Please allow 24 business hours for access to be set up.
Step 2 – Pre-book your workout time, there is no just showing up. You will need to pre-book in for a workout time, there is no dropping in, this is to ensure there is enough room to follow the social distancing guidelines. Each time slot will have a limited number of members from each tower. Bookings are for 60 minutes, if your workout is shorter that is fine, but at this time the max length will be 60 min to allow space for all members. If a time slot is full, we will take a waiting list, and if someone cancels you will be notified automatically. You will be able to book 72 hours (3 days) in advance. If you are not able to make a booked workout time, and do not cancel the booking you will be charged $ 5.00. To book your workout times please visit https://curtiswellness.myvolo.ca/ and select the Metrotower workout bookings.
The schedule for workout times is
Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 8 am finishing at 2 pm
Tuesday and Thursday from noon finishing at 6 pm.
As demand grows, we will look at extending these hours.
In order to book a workout or join the online zoom classes you will need to reactive your membership,
If you are not working onsite or do not yet feel safe to return to the fitness centre, not a problem your membership will remain frozen. If you are unsure about returning, email email@example.com and arrange a time to meet with us and we can tour you through the facility and speak to about the changes we have implemented. Your safety is our #1 priority.
The change rooms will be open for your use, while you are in the fitness center, however the showers will not be available at this time.
Please bring a full water bottle as the water bottle filler will not be available.
Please arrive 5 min prior to your booked workout time. When you arrive read the sign posted just outside the door to the fitness centre, checking if you have any signs or symptoms. If you are feeling unwell, please stay home. As you enter please use the hand sanitizer and check in with the front desk, prior to entering the change rooms.
Members are requested to follow the social distancing guidelines, and to wipe all the equipment before and after use. Any member not following these guidelines will be asked to leave the facility and have their booking privileges suspended for 1 week.
If possible please consider doing your cardio workouts outside for the summer months, if this is not possible the cardio equipment is available.
For now the Group Fitness Studio is not available to use, we are hoping to open this space in the coming weeks to give everyone more room to spread out.
Enjoy your workout!
