Gold’s Gym BC – Member Update
Mask Wearing Protocols

LET’S ALL WORKOUT SAFELY

We ask that all members wear a mask at all times in our facilities INCLUDING while weight training. Masks will NOT be required while actively working out on cardio-vascular equipment as physical distancing can be maintained (treadmills, stationary bikes, climb mills and ellipticals). If a face mask cannot be worn, a face shield must be worn instead.  Entry into Gold’s Gym will only be granted to those wearing a face mask or face shield.

Please help us to protect one another and
keep our Gold’s Gym community safe!

Mask Wearing Protocols

In accordance with the NEW Public Health Mask Mandate announced today, we will be modifying our current mask policy. We ask that all members wear a mask at all times in our facilities INCLUDING while weight training. Masks will NOT be required while actively working out on cardio-vascular equipment as physical distancing can be maintained (treadmills, stationary bikes, climb mills and ellipticals). Once you have completed your cardio-vascular workout, we ask that you please reapply your mask. This Provincial Health Order begins tomorrow November 20th and will remain in effect until midnight December 7th, 2020, unless extended by Public Health.

By complying with the new mask mandate, we continue to decrease the risk of spreading Covid-19 in our Golds Gym fitness community. This greatly improves our chances to remain open for the physical well-being and mental health of our members.

There was also update on the Provincial Health Order from November 7th, suspending all indoor group exercise classes. The Provincial Health Services Authority is allowing non-high intensity group exercise classes to resume when the Health Safety Plan requirements are met. We are excited to begin offering group exercise classes and will announce the date when our group fitness classes will be reinstated, so please stay tuned!

 Again, we thank you in advance for understanding and adhering to the new policy for the benefit of everyones health and safety.

Gold’s Gym BC – Member Update
Mask Wearing Protocols

As Covid-19 cases in the Fraser Valley and Lower Mainland continue to rise, we aim to keep our members and staff as safe as possible. We will continue practicing and enforcing our Covid-19 protocols, additionally we are introducing new measures at all Gold’s Gyms locations.

Our NEW mask policy will be in effect as of Monday, November 16th, 2020.

The B.C. Health Authority has advocated that wearing a mask significantly reduces the spread and transmission of Covid-19. By complying with this new protocol, we add another layer of protection for everyone who attends our fitness clubs.

We are continuing our commitment to provide our members with the safest fitness environment possible through our current policies listed here:

1) A reservation system for booking workout sessions (for accurate contact tracing purposes)

2) Limiting the number of members per workout session (varies per club but no more than 30% of maximum occupancy loads, well below the 50% allowable)

3) Member pre-screening before entry into the club (temperature check and Covid exposure questions)

4) Providing individual spray bottles to each member for safe cleaning of equipment before and after use (eliminating the use of shared communal spray bottles)

5) Maintaining physical distancing of a minimum six (6) feet between staff and other members when in the club

6) Thorough club cleaning and disinfecting of all high touch surfaces AFTER EVERY workout session and group exercise class (including but not limited to changerooms, floors, spray bottles, weights, cardio equipment, equipment attachments, functional turf areas, etc.)

7) Staff wearing masks and gloves at all times.

8) Members will be required to wear a mask at all times in our facilities unless actively working out. This includes any movement around the facility and any time between equipment.

We are all in this together! At a time when further Provincial restrictions may be enforced, we are working to remain open for the physical and mental well-being of our members. Let us all do our part to keep our Gold’s Gym community as safe as possible during these challenging times.

Thank you in advance for understanding and adhering to the new policy.

Gold’s Gym BC – Member Update
Provincial Health Order

Dear Valued Gold’s Gym BC members,

In compliance with the Provincial Health order made today by Dr. Bonnie Henry and Health Minister Adrian Dix, we will be suspending ALL group fitness classes at all Gold’s Gym BC facilites. This includes indoor cycling, yoga, dance and all other Group Fitness classes. The order is in effect for 2 (two) weeks starting November 7, 2020 at 10pm to midnight on November 23, 2020.

We are pleased to announce that we will remain OPEN for regular Workout Sessions and Private Personal Training Sessions.

Our Covid-safety protocols will remain in place and enforced. This includes reserving time slots, pre-screening staff and members, cleaning of equipment before and after use, maintaining social distancing within our facilities and full club cleanings between each workout session.  We will also continue to monitor staff with a daily health check upon their arrival for each shift.

We also ask that you do not come to the Club for any reason if you feel unwell, are experiencing any symptoms, are awaiting results of a COVID-19 test, or have recently travelled. As an additional precaution, we strongly encourage all individuals wear a mask when circulating in common areas of the Club. Within our Clubs, masks and gloves are still mandatory for all staff.

We will work closely with the Public Health Authority to submit a revised Group Exercise Covid Safety Plan for review. Once approved we would resume delivering our Group Fitness Programming for our members. We will continue to provide member updates based on any new Public Health Authority orders or changes to orders already imposed.

We also want to say ” Thank You” to all Gold’s Gym B.C. members and staff for adhering to our covid protocols and policies since our reopening. We are incredibly proud to have members and staff who genuinely care for one another’s health and safety! Through everyone’s consistent efforts, we will continue to provide the safest fitness environment!

Should you have any questions or concerns regarding this announcement, please email us at membersupport@goldsgymbc.ca. It will be our pleasure to assist you.

Thank you.
Gold’s Gym British Columbia

Gold’s Gym BC – Member Update
Phase 3

 Dear Members

First, we want to thank you for your tremendous support from the time we reopened our facilities at the beginning of June. We appreciate your understanding and continued cooperation, complying with our Covid-19 protocols that remain in place for the safety of all members and staff. For those members who replied to our member survey, we thank you for your valuable input! We have compiled the survey responses and have taken your suggestions and feedback to heart.

Due to the increase in Covid-19 cases in B.C., we were not able to accommodate all of your recommendations, but we have done our best to implement as many as possible without compromising the safety and health of our members and staff as maintaining a safe workout environment remains our highest priority. All aspects from Phase 1 and 2 will remain in place regarding sanitization and physical distancing guidelines to ensure the safety of our Members and Staff as we follow strict Provincial and Municipal Guidelines.

MEMBER AND STAFF REQUIREMENTS FOR ALL PHASES                                          
Staff will continue to abide by Gold’s Gym Restart Plan Protocols and Guidelines regarding all safety and health precautions before, during, and after their scheduled shift(s). Members must adhere to Provincial and local Municipal Guidelines as well as Gold’s Gym British Columbia’s Code of Conduct and Club Policies (Please go to www.goldsgymbc.ca and select “CLUB PROTOCOLS” for more detailed information and to familiarize yourself with our additional club policies due to Covid-19).

The following changes will be made on Monday, September 14th, 2020:  

1) Our current reservation system will remain in effect, and Club Capacity
limits will remain the same, based on the size of each individual club:

    a)  University Marketplace, Vancouver = 30 members maximum per time slot           
    b)  West Broadway, Vancouver = 60 members maximum per time slot
    c)  Port Coquitlam = 75 members maximum per time slot
    d)  Langley = 75 members maximum per time slot

A reservation guarantees a spot for that session. Members who don’t reserve will be allowed entry ONLY IF there is available space for that session. Reservations can be booked exactly seventy-two (72) hours in advance of a workout session OR group exercise class session. ONLY ONE (1) WORKOUT SESSION OR CLASS RESERVATION, PER MEMBER, PER DAY is permitted! Members are NOT permitted to reserve BOTH on the same day. Members must choose one or the other, and due to capacity limitations, you cannot book a Group Fitness class session and then use the main workout facility in lieu of attending the class. If a member books both in one day, reserves more than one (1) session per day and/ or books a Group Fitness class session but instead use the main workout facility and does not attend the class, the member will be restricted from reserving ANY session for one (1) week from the date of the infraction. Once members successfully reserve a workout session, the member will receive a 24-hour email confirmation and a two (2) hour text message confirmation prior to the booked session time.

Members will still be charged ($10 + GST) if they “NO SHOW” for their booked session. If you cannot make your session time, please cancel your session as soon as possible so other members can book for that time slot. Cancellation for a reserved session time remains at a minimum two (2) hours prior to the workout session start time. If a member does not show up 15 minutes into their reserved session time and has not cancelled within the minimum two (2) hour cancellation notice period, the member will be considered a “NO SHOW”, be charged a $10 fee, and their reservation spot will be forfeited. We will allow other members who are waiting to take that spot for that session time.

2) Member walk-ins will be permitted, but be limited to available
space based on Club capacity:

a) If there is available space (for example: only 55 out of 75 sessions are reserved), a member who does not have a reservation may take a spot immediately and will not be required to wait 15 minutes before being able to check-in for that session. The member can book a reservation on the spot for the session. The member MUST still make a reservation on myiclubonline.com for contact tracing purposes.

b) If the session is full, signage will indicate where walk-ins are to line up. If there are no available spots, the Member is permitted to wait in the approved waiting area outside of the Club to wait for a spot to become available. As Members leave the Club, waiting Members will be permitted access to the club on a one-in-one-out basis, as long as they intend to use the same area as the departing Member. These Members must be checked in, register themselves on myiclubonline.com AND agree to leave the Club at the end of the Member use period, regardless of the Club entry time.

c) Back-to-Back workout sessions will be permitted ONLY IF CLUB CAPACITY ALLOWS:  Members are permitted to reserve ONLY ONE (1) workout or GGX class session per day (not one of each) however if the member would like to attend the following session, they are welcome to join the next session if the next session IS NOT at full capacity. The member will still be required to exit the facility at the end of their first session and repeat the check-in process again to attend the second session. The member MUST reserve the session on myiclubonline.com for the second session for contact tracing purposes. If the session is full, please reference 2b) above and follow the procedure.

3) Masks and Face Coverings: It is not mandatory for members to wear their masks while actively engaging in rigorous exercise, including Personal Training Sessions and Group Fitness Classes, however for the safety of all, we ask that all members please wear a mask as much as possible inside the Club and maintain a 2-metre distance from others in the facility. We recommend that members carry their mask with them at all times and ask that members wear a mask when entering and exiting the Club, to and from the change room, while in the changeroom/ washroom area, while taking a tour, waiting for a class etc. Our goal is to minimize potential exposures within our facilities.

Gold’s Gym BC – Member Update
Phase 2
Phase two Restart Plan and Gold’s Gym University Market Place Reopening

Dear Member

Following the reopening of three (3) of our Gold’s Gym B.C.’s fitness clubs, we wanted to update you on the progress of our “Three-Phase Restart Plan”.  First, we want to thank all of you for your understanding and patience as our online reservation system has had its share of technical glitches and challenges.  You helped us to identify booking issues for which we have found and implemented solutions. We took your suggestions and comments to heart and we are extremely thankful for your feedback.  That said, effective immediately we have made the following changes to our online reservation system:

 

1)  Upgrades to the myiclubonline.com reservation system which will reduce booking errors;

2)  Wait List options being completely removed from myiclubonline.com and now any timeslots showing available workout sessions can be booked on a first-come, first-served basis.

 

On Monday, July 06, 2020, the following changes will take effect:

 

3)  Increased capacity for each workout time slot, based on overall facility size:

a)University Marketplace, Vancouver = 30 members maximum per time slot

b) West Broadway, Vancouver = 60 members maximum per time slot

c) Port Coquitlam = 75 members maximum per time slot

d)  Langley = 75 members maximum per time slot

4)  Adding a 5:00 am weekday early morning workout session time slot and 7:00 am weekend morning session time slot for ALL clubs.

5)  Adding an additional 10:15 pm weekday workout session time slot at West Broadway

As always, with these modifications our top priority is to continue providing an incredibly safe fitness environment for our staff and members so everyone can feel confident in visiting our clubs and get the exercise they need to stay healthy, both mentally and physically.  All Phase One Club Cleaning and Code of Conduct protocols will remain in full effect during Phase Two Opening!

 

GOLD’S GYM UNIVERSITY MARKETPLACE RE-OPENING ANNOUNCEMENT:

It had now been three (3) weeks since we reopened our doors at Gold’s Gym West Broadway and over two (2) weeks since we opened Gold’s Gym Port Coquitlam and Gold’s Gym Langley.  We are proud to announce the re-opening date for Gold’s Gym University Marketplace on Monday, July 06, 2020!  Reservations for workout sessions can be accessed on www,myiclubonline.com seventy-two (72) hours in advance of each workout session time.

If you are a Gold’s Gym British Columbia University Marketplace Vancouver member, we will reactivate billing of your membership dues on Monday, July 6th, 2020. We understand that despite our efforts to create a safe fitness environment for our Members, there may be some of you who are still not prepared to return to our fitness centre due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation. To address this concern, we have made available a complimentary hold up to August 31st, 2020 for University Marketplace Members who wish to keep their memberships inactive at this time. Continuing to keep your membership on hold will defer your membership dues and restrict entry into our clubs, until your membership billing is re-activated. Should you wish to place your membership on hold until August 31st, 2020, please send an email to membersupport@goldsgymbc.ca and in the subject line include the word “HOLD”.  If we do not receive an email, your membership payments will be re-activated as stated above. Due to the increased amount of email requests, please allow use 3-5 days to respond.  Your hold will be honored on the date we received your email request.

On September 1st, 2020, or once you reactivate your membership, whichever occurs first, your membership dues will start billing and you will regain access and use of our fitness facilities.  Keep in mind your membership contract will be extended by the equal amount of time your membership remained on hold.

We are still taking every precaution necessary based on the Health Authority and Work Safe BC requirements and recommendations to ensure a safe and healthy club experience for our members and staff.  That said, we are pleased to announce that on Monday, July 6th, 2020, Phase 2 of our Restart Plan will begin!  The 2nd Phase Restart Plan will include making available some additional amenities and programs for you to enjoy!

Gold’s Gym Langley – June 8th, 2020
Gold’s Gym UMP – TBD
(will be announced as soon as an opening date is determined)
We will reactivate billing of your membership dues on the date your home club reopens. We understand that despite our efforts to create a safe fitness environment for our Members, there may be some of you who are not prepared to return to our fitness centres due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation. To address this concern, we have made available a complimentary hold for up to three (3) months for Members who wish to keep their memberships inactive at this time. Continuing to keep your membership on hold will defer your membership dues and entry into our clubs will be restricted until you re-activate your membership. 
Once you reactivate your membership, or after three (3) months have elapsed, whichever occurs first, your membership dues will recommence billing and you will regain access and use of our fitness facilities.  Keep in mind your membership contract will be extended by the equal amount of time your membership remained on hold. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact membersupport@goldsgymbc.ca.
We are excited to begin welcoming you back to our Clubs!  We are working hard to ensure that Gold’s Gym British Columbia remains a safe and trusted place for you to enjoy!  We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we work through these new protocols to help ensure everyone’s safety and comfort. We will continue to provide email and video updates as soon as any new developments or changes are made.
