Personal Training will be available in Club, as well as through a new Remote Personal Training option.
In order to reduce the potential for contact and/or movement around the Club, please ensure the below guidelines are followed at all times:
- All Personal Trainers will be required to wear a mask when training with clients.
- To ensure proper physical distancing measures, no physical contact will be permitted in Personal Training sessions. Contact must not occur unless needed to ensure safety and prevent injury.
- Handshakes and physical greetings are not permitted.
- Clients must be prepared to handle their own weights and equipment. Workouts must be modified so as not to require spotting. Alternatives such as bands must be used in place of assisted stretching.
- Personal Training can only take place on the general workout floor or in the Personal Training area. Personal Training is not permitted in the Group Fitness studio.
- All equipment used will be cleaned before and after use.
- All Personal Training consultations will take place at presentation tables equipped with protective barriers.
Remote Personal Training
GoodLife now offers an exciting option for our Personal Training clients in order to allow them to work with their Personal Trainer virtually from the comfort of their home. Remote Personal Training will provide an easy way for Clients to continue on their fitness journeys without having to book time in the Club. This is a great option for clients who are not quite ready to come back into the Club, yet allowing them the opportunity to stay connected with their trainer.
No changes to your current Personal Training package are required. Current sessions in inventory, as well as new sessions purchased, can be used for both in-club or Remote Personal Training.
If you are an existing Member but not a Personal Training client and are interested in Remote Personal Training, please call your home Club to learn more.
Members will continue to have access to an amazing selection of live and virtual Group Fitness classes. Studios have been modified to ensure physical distancing is possible and to keep Members in a smaller general area during the course of the class. Classes have been modified where possible to ensure less movement and keep distancing at a maximum.
Group Fitness class offerings have also been modified, as we want to make sure we are running classes that can achieve our desired level of safety, while still meeting The GoodLife Standard that Members have come to expect. While subject to change and may vary by Club, current available programming includes:
BODYPUMP, BODYFLOW, CXWORX, BARRE, YOGA, RPM & RIDE, CORE, NewBody Muscle, Free Style programming including Functional Strength/Firm Parts / Tone & Strengthen concepts
If you are attending a Group Fitness Class, we ask that you bring your own mat. If your class will need straps or blocks, please bring those, as well. Keep personal items at your station and be mindful of your neighbours, ensuring you do not move from your designated spot in the studio. Upon arrival, please set up at a station that is away from the studio door in order to avoid contact with others as they come in. You are able to grab additional weights, if needed. After the class is complete, remove all plates from the bar and leave the Club mat unrolled if you used one. We look forward to seeing you in the studio!
Class Set-Up and Clean-Up
Group Fitness classes will be set-up for Members in advance to ensure physical distancing. After the class, Members will be directed to leave their equipment at their stations and Associates will ensure the equipment is cleaned and prepared for the next class.
Group Fitness Check-In Process
Members must wait outside of the Club at the beginning of their 1-hour time-slot and enter the Club at the same time as the other participants in the class. An Associate will be present to take attendance and allow entry to walk-ins based on available capacity.
Classes will be scheduled to begin 10 minutes after a workout timeslot has begun, but can start earlier if the class is full. Classes are to end no later than the Club exit time. When exiting, the back row will leave the studio first, followed by the rest of the participants in an orderly fashion.
Passes and sign-up sheets will not be used in Group Fitness classes at this time. This includes Hot Yoga passes and cycling sign-up sheets. Attendance lists will be provided to the Instructors in advance to confirm attendance.
Virtual Fitness will operate in much the same way as Live Group Fitness, with programming that will begin 10 minutes after Club Entry Time and will end close to Club Exit Time.
A GoodLife Associate will be present to power on the studio for any Members who are booked for a particular Virtual Fitness class. If no Members have booked a class, but someone wishes to use the studio, they must request assistance from an Associate, who can then set up the studio for the Member.
Members will continue to have access to a huge variety of amazing Fitness Class options from home and are encouraged to explore the digital offerings available on our website and app.
