A 6th zone has been added in the former kid-zone. This area can be used for suspension training, core, stretch, & free weights.
The reservation system is still in place. Please be sure you are reserving your times!
As anticipated, current regulations have been extended until February 6 at midnight. This means that our current reservation and group policies will remain in place.
If I had the ability to space out equipment, I would do this. But we all know that is not an option. I am doing the best I can with the situation we are in.
I am extending a zone-sharing option, however. Currently, members of the same household can share zones. I will extend this to all members who currently spend time together outside of the gym. Please limit it to 4 people in a zone, given the close proximity of zones. This is out of respect for members trying to protect their health. Those wishing to share zones - please complete the "group waiver" on our class page.
I will continue to evaluate ways to create more usable space.
I have discovered members using the gym without reservations, changing zones, and crossing zones. This is NOT allowed without approval of the person who has the zone reserved. While in the gym, it is VERY easy to pull up the reservation system and see if the space is available. (And reserve it.)
Believe it or not, I hate setting rules. But I do love keeping my doors open for our community. Rules created means rules enforced. I cannot think about a handful of members. I have to think about 200+ people. I hear you all and do my best to make the best decisions for the masses AND for the survival of BOM.
Respect the rules and the BOM community or memberships will be suspended.
Again, my most sincere thanks to all of you for your patience as we navigate this unusual time and do our best to get through.
Tami will be offering limited group classes starting Monday, December 28.
The current regulations are in effect until January 8th. Group classes and general gym access will be evaluated at that time.
Given the governor's updates today, we will continue to keep our reservation system in place through December 16th. We will look at reopening for normal operations December 17th (4:00am).
I want to thank all of you for your patience through these complicated times. Especially those who have maintained a membership throughout the entire year. Over the last several months, we have all had to adapt and sacrifice to make it work. My priority has been to keep the facility open, knowing that "some is better than none".
A reminder that freezing your membership IS an option if you need to. I am reinstating pre-COVID rules regarding freezing. Members are allowed to freeze up to 3 months in a year with no consequences. Any freeze extended beyond that period will result in new member fees.
* Please continue to follow the cleaning & sanitation guidelines.
* With my limited time in the facility, I may not see everything. If there are any issues with equipment or supplies in the gym, please contact me. My cell number is posted on the dropbox in the gym.
* A reminder that guests are not currently allowed in the facility. I have seen a few in. Please be sure that all persons on your membership are aware.
* I am seeing a lot of muddy footprints lately. Clean shoes are required for use of the facility. Offenders caught will be charged a Cleaning & Maintenance fee.
I am exploring the option of a virtual platform for BOM. We would be able to offer live online and pre-recorded workouts. There would also be fitness and nutrition education and tools. I am requesting feedback from members and non-members alike. Would you use an online tool if it was offered to you? Would you pay for access to these classes and resources?
Finally, a reminder that our prices are increasing for existing members effective January 1, 2020. The price list is attached and is already updated on our website. All previous discounts other than military are null and void. (I have extended several courtesies over the years.) HOWEVER - please remember that my mission is community health. Contact me directly for concerns and assistance with memberships.
Stay healthy, my friends!
