the goodlife standard

The GoodLife Standard is our commitment to providing a world-class fitness experience in GoodLife Clubs across the country that meets or exceeds all public health guidelines. We tapped into our 40+ years of experience and consulted experts in healthcare, public health and cleaning and sanitization to create a set of guidelines that are designed to keep our Members, Associates and communities healthy and as safe as possible during these unique times.


Search your location to view your club’s GoodLife Standard updates.

While our criteria for cleanliness have always been high, the COVID-19 pandemic has required us to take this to an even higher standard – The GoodLife Standard. We have continually engaged in meaningful conversations with government and public health experts to ensure that the approach we are taking is aligned with constantly evolving public health mandates and best practices. Our dedicated team continues to consult with experts in infection prevention, and cleaning and sanitization to create an operations plan that is caring, informed, comprehensive and consistent.


Our new health and safety standards are updated regularly, and it is important to recognize that public health information and provincial orders can change quickly. We will do everything we can to update our standards and website as quickly as possible in response to these changes. If you have any questions, you can also call your local Club directly.

Frequently Asked Questions

GoodLife has embarked on an unprecedented effort to ensure our Clubs are as safe as possible for all our Members and Associates. We have consulted a variety of experts in infection prevention and control to establish a set of comprehensive guidelines that help create the safest environment possible in all of our Clubs. We continue to work with various government and public health stakeholders to ensure each of our Clubs are meeting or exceeding all guidelines put forth by all levels of government.


As public health guidance and provincial orders have evolved over the last year, we have regularly updated our health and safety standards.


We are grateful for the ongoing efforts of our Members and Associates to keep one another - and their greater communities - safe and healthy during these unique times.

Our current operational practices differ from province to province - and even region to region - based on local public health guidelines. As vaccination rates continue to increase across the country and provinces work through their plans for reopening, we look forward to being able to progress towards our regular operations. While we look ahead to a bright future, we will only make changes when it is safe to do so, following the guidelines and recommendations from local government and public health officials.

We are not reducing Membership fees, but we will not be charging for amenity add-ons that are not currently available. All current limitations to our amenities and services are required to ensure we are complying with government regulations and/or providing a Club environment that is as safe as possible.

In order to add value for our Members while some options are unavailable, we have been working hard behind the scenes to provide hundreds of online options to support you as you work on your health and fitness goals from outside our Clubs. This includes continuing to offer 15+ live, online workout and mental wellness classes every week, as well as daily workouts and content on our social media channels.


We know that everyone's personal situation is different and we want to be supportive of that. If you are interested in temporarily freezing your Membership, please contact our Member Experience team to learn more.

People join GoodLife because they want to be and feel healthy, happy and strong – physically and mentally. In pursuit of the good life, they often find a sense of community that keeps them coming back and a convenience that is second to none in Canada.

Even with our robust investments in safety, we recognize that these are unique and challenging times and that everyone’s personal situations are different. You trust us with your health and fitness and, if you aren’t ready to come back to our Clubs just yet, we understand. That is why we are offering a no-fee temporary Membership freeze to any Member who requests it.

We highly recommend trying out this new Club experience before you freeze your Membership. We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised! But if you’re just not ready, that’s ok too.

To activate a no-fee freeze, visit our Member Portal.

We are dealing with unprecedented circumstances and are doing everything we can to ensure GoodLife Clubs remain as safe as possible and comply with provincial and regional public health guidelines, while also continuing to provide the exceptional fitness experience our Members expect.

We will continue to closely monitor your feedback and all provincial reopening plans. If we have the opportunity to improve our Members' experience, while also meeting or exceeding public health regulations, we will update our policies and procedures wherever possible when it is safe to do so.

With online booking, we're finding a balance between providing the safest Club environment possible AND an exceptional experience for our Members. A preset capacity for each Club helps facilitate physical distancing while also guaranteeing your workout time.

To create our booking system, we closely reviewed past check-in volumes, Club square footage and provincial government regulations. We have put a significant amount of time, research and consideration into this system, and we are confident that it will help us provide the safest Club environment possible while giving as many people as possible the chance to achieve their health and fitness goals. We'll continue to monitor the system and your feedback and update our procedures where needed.

Group Fitness class offerings have been modified to make sure we are running classes that can achieve our desired level of safety, while still giving our Members the great experience they have come to expect.

Programs were selected after a careful review of fitness industry practices given the current circumstances.

Some further limitations may be present in your region, depending on local public health restrictions. Other programs will be considered as we progress towards normal operations.

We are closely monitoring all provincial and federal health guidelines to ensure our Clubs are as safe as possible for all our Members and Associates. We will only reopen closed amenities/services when it is safe to do so based on these guidelines and following the recommendations of local public health officials.

Responding to the varied masking mandates and restrictions in Public Health regions across the country, GoodLife introduced a colour-coded masking system for Members. GoodLife’s mask level system has three colour-coded levels, ranging from Green to Red. At level Green, masking is a personal choice; at level Red, masks must be worn at all times, in all areas of the Club.


Our goal by implementing this system is to clarify mask usage standards for Members at each Club. Please note that your Club’s masking level may change at any given time as per regional Public Health guidelines and/or GoodLife decisions. To find the individual requirements for your Club, please refer to the chart under Club & Mask Status.

If allowed by provincial guidelines, change rooms are available.


In order to ensure physical distancing and cleanliness, locker capacity has been reduced, with select lockers secured so they cannot be used.


All Members must maintain proper physical distancing while in change rooms.


Please plan ahead and try to use the change rooms only when absolutely necessary. If possible, arrive ready for your workout by wearing your workout clothes and shoes into the Club.

We highly recommend that you continue to shower at home. Showers will only be available in certain clubs where Government restrictions allow.

Towel service will remain closed in all Clubs until further notice.

Members are encouraged to bring a pre-filled water bottle for their workout. Water fountains will be equipped with bottle fillers, but Members are not permitted to drink directly from the water fountains.

Members are encouraged to bring their own small equipment, where possible, to decrease the number of items being handled in the Club. Foam rollers, bands, and mats are available to Members at this time. These items must be cleaned before and after each use. 

Floor fans and mounted fans will remain OFF at this time to prevent any unnecessary air movement. Ceiling fans will remain ON to provide air flow necessary for proper ventilation

If allowed by provincial guidelines, lockers are available. In order to ensure physical distancing and cleanliness, locker capacity has been reduced, with select lockers secured so they cannot be used. Used lockers will be cleaned after each use to ensure it is safe for the next Member. Members will be asked to leave their locker open at the end of their workout. If the locker is closed, it is clean and is safe to be used by the next Member. This may vary between provinces based on provincial regulations.

Hairdryers and curling irons are not available. Due to health and safety concerns, Members are not permitted to bring their own.

Currently, only one Associate will be behind the Front Desk at a time and they are only able to assist one Member.* We ask for your patience as our Associates try to assist with any questions as promptly and safely as they can. Please wait in the designated waiting areas until an Associate is available to speak with you.

*In some Clubs, where space allows for safe physical distancing while assisting Members, up to two associates may be allowed behind the front desk at the same time.

All paid-in-full memberships will have the number of the days your club was closed added to the expiry date of your membership. This will happen automatically when your club reopens. For example: If Clubs in your area have been closed for 30 days, you would receive an extra 30 days added to the end of your membership term.

Note: Please ensure your email is up to date to receive information about your Club reopening.

Club Access and Amenities

Our Clubs are currently operating with a variety of access models that have been designed to meet changing public health restrictions and the needs of our Members in various provinces, regions and cities. Each of our Clubs are unique, and this tailored approach to the access model allows for us to operate responsibly while continuing to provide an expanded and exceptional experience for each of our Members. Please also see a list of related FAQ’s below.

Each of our Clubs are unique, and a tailored approach to the access model allows for us to operate responsibly while continuing to provide an expanded and exceptional experience for each of our Members. We will continue to monitor each Club’s assigned Club Access Model and make changes as needed. 

We are constantly monitoring opportunities to add new amenities wherever it is safe to do so and where we are allowed to under local public health restrictions. Please find your club to see which amenities are currently available

In order to add value for our Members while capacities are reduced, we have been working hard behind the scenes to provide more online options to support you as you work on your health and fitness goals from outside our Clubs. This includes continuing to offer live, online daily workout and mental wellness classes on our social media channels every week, as well as on-demand classes, training plans and workouts on our mobile app.


If you are not comfortable paying Membership fees while capacities are reduced, we are offering the ability to pause your Membership for free. You can do so through the “My Account” page on our website

Many of our clubs continue to require advance bookings.


Each club will have a slightly different schedule for workouts and group fitness classes. We recommend you check your club’s schedule by logging into our member website, and selecting ‘Book’ on the left-hand navigation.

We make the decision about showers on a Club-by-Club basis, with safety top of mind. This decision is made based on the volume of check-ins and our ability to ensure the proper flow of Members throughout the changeroom and shower area.

Club hours vary from club to club. To find hours for a specific location, please use the Find a Club tool or search for the Club on the GoodLife mobile app.

Each of our locations has a capacity that is determined by public health restrictions and an analysis of that Club’s individual space to enable our Members to maintain a proper physical distance from one another.


In some locations, pre-booked appointments are a government-mandated public health measure; elsewhere, we have used our booking system to increase convenience in high-traffic locations to give our Members an opportunity to secure their workout time in advance.


Our booking system and Associates ensure that our capacity limits are maintained and physical distancing is possible at all times.

When a club is at level green, masking is a personal choice.
When a club is at level yellow, masks must be worn upon entry, exit, in change rooms and moving between workout stations. Masks can be removed at your workout station and must be worn when you leave your workout station.
When a club is at level red, masks must be worn at all times, in all areas of the club. Please reduce your intensity level accordingly.*

Safety & Cleaning Practices

We remain fully committed to upholding the rigorous safety and cleaning standards established in our reopening plan. While our Associates take the lead on many of these cleaning practices and protocols, our Members also have a very important role to play in helping us maintain The GoodLife Standard. 

Updates to our Safety Cleaning Practices


Some of the Safety and Cleaning Practices you’ll notice at your local GoodLife include:

  • Hospital-grade disinfectant for cleaning 

A one-step hospital-grade disinfectant and contact sanitizer that is used for frequent touchpoint cleaning throughout our Clubs.


  • Constant cleaning of high-touch surfaces 

Our Associates have adopted a “constantly cleaning” mind-set, ensuring special attention is always given to high-touch surfaces.


  • Protective barriers installed 

Protective barriers have been installed at designated locations where Associates and Members meet, including the front desk, presentation tables, and consultation areas where possible.


  • Masks required for all Associates 

GoodLife Associates are required to wear a mask in all areas of the Club and when interacting with Members. 

In Mask Level Red, Group Fitness Instructors must wear a mask at all times, even when teaching. Mask Levels vary by location and region. 

If you would like to determine what Mask Level your Club is in, click here and search for your specific GoodLife Fitness location.


  • Reduced locker availability & enhanced cleaning 

Locker availability has been reduced and each locker is cleaned after each use to ensure it is safe for the next Member. Note: Some provincial guidelines prohibit the use of lockers in fitness clubs at different stages of reopening.


Some of the key actions we’ve asked our Members to take to help keep our Clubs as safe as possible include: 

  • Wipe down before and after each use
Members are required to wipe down equipment BEFORE and AFTER each use. 
  • Hand sanitizer available throughout the Clu
Additional hand sanitizer has been made available, including the installation of hand sanitizer stations at strategic locations throughout the Club.
  • Member masking mandates

Please respect the GoodLife Mask Level at your Club. This colour-coded masking system is informed by masking mandates and public health recommendations in each region, and indicates where and when Members must wear masks. 

The following are acceptable face covering options for Members: 

  • Non-medical disposable masks
  • Non-medical reusable masks 
  • Face coverings such as cloth, linen (including a hijab and niqab) or a scarf

We recommend a 2+ layer reusable mask made of cotton or linen. Your mask should be well-fitted with ear loops or ties. It should allow you to breathe easily without requiring regular adjustments. All face coverings must cover your nose, mouth and chin. 

A face shield is not an acceptable form of face covering.

Please see Club & Mask Status for more information.  

Booking & Capacity

Booking at GoodLife operates on a 72-hour (3-day) system. This means that a workout or class will be available to book 72 hours in advance of its start time.


For example, if the current day/time is Monday, June 7, at 5:00 a.m. then workout and class bookings are available up to and including Thursday, June 10, at 5:00 a.m. 


Currently, our Clubs are operating with a variety of Club access models designed to meet local health public restrictions and the needs of our Members in various provinces, regions and cities across the country. Many Clubs require Members to book their workouts in advance, while others have incorporated open workout times and only require advanced booking for Group Fitness classes. Some locations have a mixture of open workouts and booking blocks throughout the day.


Each of our Clubs are unique, and this tailored approach to Club access allows for us to operate responsibly while continuing to provide an expanded and exceptional experience for each of our Members. 


To find out which booking options are available at your Club, please visit your Club page.


Our ultimate goal is to move more Clubs from booking block models to the open workout model in the near future. However, booking workouts and classes through the GoodLife app and website continues to be the best option in regions where government capacity restrictions are in place, or where public health mandates require pre-booked appointments.


Important: Any Members found to be abusing the booking system will receive an automatic 14-day Membership suspension for first offense and will not be able to use the Clubs during that time. While we recognize this is a very small group of Members, we are actively monitoring our booking systems, and to ensure fairness for our Members, we cannot tolerate this behavior.

  • Effective January 7, our required notice time for cancelling a booking has increased from 1 hour to 5 hours to help Members on new waitlist take advantage of an opening.
  • We will no longer close the booking window 30 minutes before a workout or class starts. You can book up to 72 hours in advance, right up until the moment the timeslot or class is about to start.
  • The booking window is now 72 hours in advance on all versions of the app, our website or by calling our Clubs directly. For example, if you are on the website or app on a Wednesday at noon, you can book workouts or classes up to and including the following Saturday at noon, but not beyond that.

Attending Your Session

The below information applies only to Clubs where you are currently required to book workouts.


Arriving at the Club

Members are required to line up outside the Club, in the designated waiting area, prior to the booking start time. Signage will indicate the physical distancing requirements and indicate how Members should be organized.

Booked Members:  Members who are booked will see signage to indicate where they should line up. Members must line up until the Greeter indicates they are okay to enter the Club. Once in the Club, Members must check themselves in by scanning their Member card to open the gate.

Walk-ins:  Walk-ins are permitted, based on remaining Club capacity. Signage will indicate where walk-ins are to line up to wait for an available spot. If there are no available spots, the Member is permitted to wait in the approved waiting area outside of the Club to see if capacity becomes available during the workout period. As Members leave the Club, waiting Members will be permitted access on a one-in one-out basis. These Members must be checked in, and agree to leave the Club at the end of the Member use period, regardless of the Club entry time.

Membership Updates

If your Club is required to close due to government restrictions in your region, your Membership will be placed on an automatic freeze and Membership dues will not be turned on until Clubs in your region reopen. Any important Membership Updates will be communicated directly with you via email.

Additional information about your membership

  • If you Club is required to close due to COVID-19 restrictions, GoodLife will automatically freeze Membership dues.


  • When Clubs reopen, pre-authorized payment schedules will resume on the day Clubs in your region reopen and your payment withdrawal day will remain the same as before the COVID-19 freeze. 

  • Any days accrued through payments prior to our Clubs closing will be applied to your account as Membership time and will cover your access to GoodLife facilities for a corresponding number of days once Clubs in your region reopen.

  • Because any time paid before the closure will be credited to your account as Membership time, your first payment may be less than it was before the freeze.

Options for you

In addition to the robust standards we have implemented, we are also providing diverse options to accommodate our Members, such as Remote Personal Training, digital workouts and content on our App and website. If you aren't ready to return to your Club, we understand and will offer a free temporary membership freeze.

Amenities & Equipment

At this time, many of our Clubs have reduced amenities available to comply with government and public health requirements. We are closely monitoring all local, provincial and federal health guidelines, and we will only reopen closed amenities and services when it is safe to do so based on these guidelines.


It is important to recognize that public health information and provincial orders can change quickly. We will be doing everything we can to update our Standards and website as quickly as possible in response to these changes.

Reduced Amenities

Certain amenities are available while others have been reduced on a Club-by-Club basis.


Please check your local Club to find out which Amenities are currently available to you.

Members will have access to:

  • For Women workout area 
  • Consultation area 
  • Group Fitness Studio 
  • Cycling Studio 
  • Personal Training Area 
  • MindDEN (one Member or Associate at a time)

Please check your local Club to find out which amenities are available to you.


Changerooms are available based on regional public health guidelines.


To determine whether or not you will have access to the changeroom at your Club, click here and search for your specific GoodLife Fitness location.

General Workout Areas

GoodLife has implemented a number of measures, including directional arrows, signage and equipment placement to ensure physical distancing can be achieved. Where possible, equipment may be disabled and/or relocated to facilitate this. Members are expected to use their best judgment when determining if a piece of equipment or workout area can be used safely while maintaining the recommended 2-metres (or in some cases, 3-metres) of physical distancing.

Changerooms and Washrooms

Some changeroom and washroom facilities are available on a reduced basis when permitted by the local public health guidelines. In Clubs where changeroom and washroom facilities remain open, it is important that proper physical distancing be maintained at all times. 

Due to changing public health guidelines, there are Clubs where changerooms and washrooms will be temporarily unavailable. With that in mind, it is strongly recommended that Members arrive to their Club ready to work out.

To determine whether or not you will have access to the changeroom at your Club, click here and search for your specific GoodLife Fitness location.

Personal Training

Personal Training is available In-Club, Remotely (Virtual), and Outdoors. If you are in a region where your Club is closed, or if your Club is open and you are not comfortable returning just yet, Remote and Outdoor Personal Training are convenient, flexible options to get started again or experience the benefits of one-on-one training for the first time.


Remote Personal Training makes it easy to connect with your personal trainer from the comfort of your own home, while Outdoor Personal Training allows you to continue your training journey in person in an outdoor setting.


No changes to your current Personal Training package are required to access Remote or Outdoor Personal Training. Current sessions in inventory, as well as new sessions purchased, can be used for all formats of Personal Training. If you are an existing Member but not a Personal Training client and are interested in any of these options, please call your Home Club to learn more or click here to book a free consultation.


Please Note: Not all provinces are currently allowing for In-Club or Outdoor Personal Training; however, Remote Personal Training remains available in those regions. Please contact your Home Club for more information about your options.

In order to reduce the potential for contact and/or movement around the Club, please ensure the following guidelines are followed at all times: 


  • All Personal Trainers are required to wear a mask and face shield (where applicable) when training with clients.

  • Physical distancing must be maintained throughout the workout; however, trainers may briefly spot and cue their clients, as long as both the trainer and client are comfortable with it. If brief contact is necessary, trainers and clients must ensure hand hygiene is practiced. 


  • Personal Training can only take place in the General Workout Area, Personal Training Area, or in some select cases, in the Group Fitness Studio.

  • All equipment will be cleaned before and after use.

  • All Personal Training consultations will take place at presentation tables equipped with protective barriers.

Group Fitness

Where government restrictions allow, Members continue to have access to an amazing selection of live and virtual Group Fitness classes. Studios have been modified to ensure that physical distancing is possible, and classes have been modified, where possible, to ensure less movement.


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 providing the exceptional experience that Members have come to expect.

Before attending Group Fitness Classes

  • To reduce shared equipment, consider bringing your own equipment, where possible. This may include: 
    • Workout mat 
    • Straps and blocks (if needed for class)
    • Blocks

Group Fitness Check-In Process


In regions where bookings are required, Group Fitness classes are scheduled to begin at the same time as the Club's booking timeslots. Members must wait outside of the Club prior to their booking start time and enter the Club at the same time as other participants in the class. 


An Associate will be present to take attendance and allow additional entry to walk-ins based on available capacity. 


Class Set-Up and Clean-Up


Members will find individual Group Fitness stations set up for them when they arrive for their class. These stations have been spaced out appropriately to comply with physical distancing requirements. After the class, the Group Fitness Instructor will ask participants to wipe down their equipment using the provided disinfectant spray and paper towels. The Instructor will remain available for any questions and ensure that the equipment is cleaned properly.


Upon arrival and during class

  • If you arrive early, choose a spot away from the studio door to avoid contact with others as they come in

  • You are able to grab additional weights, if needed

  • Keep personal items at your station

  • Be mindful of neighbours and do not move from your designated spot in the studio


After Class

  • Remove all plates from the bar

  • If you used a mat from the Club, please leave it unrolled

  • Classes will 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.


Virtual Fitness 

Each Virtual Fitness Class will begin at the same time as the Member’s booking. Members should arrive before their scheduled booking and enter the Club at the same time as other participants in the class.

An Associate will set up the studio for any Members who are booked into a particular Virtual Fitness Class. If no Members have booked into the class, but someone wishes to use the studio, they must request assistance from an Associate who will 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 (iOS, Android). 

Land Acknowledgement

GoodLife Fitness was founded on the traditional lands of the Anishinaabek (Ah-nish-in-a-bek), Haudenosaunee (Ho-den-no-show-nee), Lūnaapéewak (Len-ahpay- wuk) and Attawandaron (Add-a-won-da-run) Peoples, on lands connected with the London Township and Sombra Treaties of 1796 and the Dish with One Spoon Covenant Wampum. This land, and the land on which all GoodLife Fitness Clubs operate, continues to be home to diverse Indigenous Peoples (First Nations, Inuit and Métis) whom we recognize as contemporary stewards of the land and vital contributors of our society.
