Coronavirus And CFA

Mar 13, 2020

 by Chris Brown

By now, you've all probably heard about the COVID-19, also known as coronavirus, crisis taking hold in California, the United States and the world.  Some of you may be panicking.  Some of you may be shrugging it off.  Either way, we want to let you know that classes are continuing as scheduled here at CrossFit Awaken and that we are doing what we can to help stop the potential spread of this — and any other — sickness in the gym.

During times of great uncertainty or stress, most of our clients find that coming to their classes despite what's going on helps them to recalibrate and focus.  And we want you to know that we're still here for you.

We've not only directed our cleaning team to do a thorough, top-down, cleaning three times a week, but we've also added more buckets with sanitizing spray bottles and fresh towels in locations throughout the gym.  We're working on getting hand sanitizer to place all over, as well.

It's always our primary goal to help get and keep you healthy.  That's why we still feel it's important to keep up your fitness regimen and healthy nutrition.  

We've already thoroughly cleaned each and every one of our barbells, dumbbells, weights, bands, PVC pipes and bars, but we will need your help and participation to help keep CrossFit Awaken germ-free.  Here are some of the things we ask you do:

  • If you're feeling sick, please stay home. 
  • If you have a family member at home who is sick with anything contagious, please take the time to care for them and avoid the gym.
  • After using any workout equipment in class, we ask that you take a moment to wipe it down when you are finished. 
  • Also, we ask that you continue to thoroughly wash your hands before and after class.
  • Have kids in the kids room?  Please take a moment to wipe down things they've played with our used, as well.

Having said that, everyone's situation is different.  If you decide that the risk for you, your family, and/or your business of attending class is too great, please be sure to speak to a staff member and know we will be happy to work with you to find a way to keep you fit.

We're also working on a series of videos and at-home workouts to give our clients should they decide to stay home on a particular day.

This situation is changing quickly and we'll be sure to continue to update you on our efforts at keep you safe and healthy. 

We want what's best for you, your family and your business and we're here to help you in any way we can.
