COMING TO CLASS 101 VIDEO:
“What to Bring Checklist”
- Mask – Required (may be removed for the workout)
- Individual Sweat Towel – Required
- Individual Water Bottle – Optional (we do not supply cups)
More details on all of this below.
**You will not be permitted into the gym without a mask.**
They will be required for entering the gym and must stay on up until the workout starts. They will not be required for the actual performance of the workouts and may be removed at that time. Upon completion of your workout, you will be asked to place your mask back on as you clean your area and exit the gym.
Individual Workout Zones
We have our gyms mapped out with social distancing at the forefront of operations. Each individual in a class receives their own dedicated, sanitized workout zone that is 100 – 120 square feet. The ensures a distance of approximately 8 – 12 feet between you and your “neighbor” at all times.
You will keep all of your personal items inside your square during the workout.
You will gather your own equipment for every workout, never sharing or touching the same equipment as someone else. After class, it is sanitized with hospital grade virucide spray so you can rest assured you are coming to class and using clean equipment.

[COVID CONSCIOUS, part 3] The Individual Workout Zone _______ Your own: ☑️Barbell ☑️Bumpers ☑️DBs + KB ☑️Erg/Bike ___________ Cleaned and disinfected between classes with hospital grade virucide that is FDA proven effective against COVID-19. And of course, plenty of distance between you and others. Per usual, we’ll adjust accordingly to any official regulations. @performance360_baypark
Every class will be be reduced by 40-60% capacity so that we adhere to social distancing guidelines and allow only the amount that will allow us to follow CDC guidelines. This nets out to a class size of roughly 12-16 people.
4-Layer Cleaning Approach
The hygiene of the gym will be our single biggest priority as we re-open. We have added suppliers and expanded our budget to meet modern needs. We have partnered with an independently owned company based in Oregon, owned by a former San Diego Navy SEAL, and all products are certified by the EPA as effective against the Coronavirus.

[COVID CONSCIOUS, part 4] “Cleanliness” _________ In our effort to maintain transparency, we want you to know exactly what will be responsible for keeping the gym clean. The company we used was closely researched. We spoke directly with the owner about the product and it’s effectiveness specifically against COVID-19, to ensure we weren’t hiding behind a product we didn’t feel good about. _________ This will be used for daily floor and restroom treatment, as well as a thorough cleaning of the equipment after every class. If you have questions about anything we post, please feel free to ask. We are an open book. #BecomeMore
We will deploy a four layered protective system centered around a “weekly-nightly-hourly” approach. It will be updated as needed based on frequency demand.
Our gyms have been a commercially graded rubber mat sealant that helps seal out virus, fungus, and bacteria from falling into the cracks and crevices of the rubber.
Layer 2 (Weekly):
Multiple times per week, the gym will professionally deep cleaned, scrubbed, and disinfected wall to wall.
Layer 3 (Daily):
Every single day, the gym will be sprayed down with an EPA Coronavirus certified, hospital grade virucide disinfectant that is left to soak and dry overnight, presenting members with a disinfected clean slate daily.
Layer 4 (Hourly):
Every quadrant of workout zones has full bottles of EPA Coronavirus certified, hospital graded virucide spray that will be required by all members to be used immediately following the workout for the purposes of sanitizing individual workout zones and equipment within them. This process will be supervised and ensured by our coaches.

Distancing Appropriate Movement Lanes
There will be taped off and guided one-way lanes to move about the gym for when you need to get water, use the bathroom, or change out equipment, ensuring you never walk into someone’s workout zone and never have to wonder which way to go. These lanes help keep all distancing guidelines in tact.
Appropriately Distanced Coach
Your coach will never enter your workout zone without permission and is prepared to coach you from a safe distance using auditory and visual cuing. They will have a mask on throughout class with the exception for when they deliver the pre-class demo.
Dedicated Entry and Exit Points for Each Gym
All three gyms with have their own entry and exit doors. Each entry door will have a hand sanitizer pump that you’ll use before entry.

[COVID CONSCIOUS, part 2] “One Pump Everyone Knows the Rules” // Every gym will have dedicated entry and exit points, with disinfectant available upon entry to class (w/ alcohol levels recommend by CDC). This will help ensure we keep a smooth flow of class transition, and that we all get into our stations with clean hands. ➡️ _______________ #BecomeMore #CovidConscious
In order to execute a class cap that is 40-60% of what we were used to, we are adjusting the flow of workouts to be concentrated into 50 minute class slots to allow us for more class slots throughout the day. With classes shortened by 10 minutes, we will also have more class times available at every location.
While individual locations may contain more of these times than others, this is what our full slate of classes will look like.
Tying It All Together
Here is how you can envision your experience while we must manage social distancing as a community.
0:00 – You show up to class fully changed, you walk in the gym with your mask on and apply one pump of hand sanitizer at the dedicated entry point. Your coach says hello to you from a safe distance. You find an open workout zone and you stand in it. There is already a barbell in your zone ready for you individual use. You are free to interact with anyone you like from an acceptable social distance. Once in your zone, you may remove your mask.
0:00 – Your coach performs the walkthrough at the front of the room for all to see. You may begin actively warming up during the walkthrough.
0:05 – Upon walkthrough completion, your coach will instruct you to gather your equipment needed.
0:10 – Warm up.
0:15 – Workout begins. You may gather/exchange whatever weight you need throughout the workout.
0:40 – Workout ends. Place your mask back on.
0:40 – 0:45 – Mandatory spray down of your station and your equipment.
0:45 – Wash your hands. Exit the gym.
Next class enters. Rinse. Repeat.
When you need to get water, exchange weight, or use the restroom simply follow the one-way marked paths around the gym.
