When you first walk into the club, you are likely to notice a few changes, and there are many more behind the scenes. These changes are the result of our team's dedication to providing you the safest and cleanest possible club experience. 


We Are All Cleaners


All Powerhouse Gym associates are now part of our housekeeping team. Every team member is equipped with a bottle of disinfectant, a towel, and all the necessary training on best-in-class cleaning techniques. Our challenge to ourselves: 'ABC, or always be cleaning'.

To Keep Us Together, We Stay Apart


Our club is a community, and to keep that community safe we must practice social distancing. Powerhouse Gym will take advantage of the large size of our club so that all members will have over 10,000 square feet of space. Physical dividers will be installed where necessary for our associate and member safety.

Cleaning Supplies, Supplied


You will find hand sanitizer stations throughout the club, as well as disinfectant wipes throughout all areas with shared equipment.

Club Capacity Modified


As an extra precaution, and to help ensure proper distancing, we are reducing the maximum capacity of our club to 25% during Phase 1 of re-opening. Please try to plan your trip to the gym during non peak hours. 


**As you enter the club, you will be required to sign a form that states they will adhere to our safety guidelines. 

Personal Protective Equipment


Masks or face coverings must be worn at all times inside the gym. Masks will be available at the club for purchase.

Signage At The Club


Signs around the club will help reinforce this information. Please be on the lookout and take note of these signs.



We are using email to communicate all important club updates. If you are not currently on our email list, please stop by the front desk to subscribe.

1-2 Cleaning Approach


This is our cleaning philosophy. The first line of defense is you--please make sure to wipe down equipment after you use it. The second clean is our professional staff, who will constantly clean all club equipment throughout the day.

Notification of Positive Cases

If we become aware that you have had any direct exposure to a person who has tested positive for COVID, like during a personal training session, we will reach out and notify you directly. We will report cases to, and work with, local health departments for contact tracing purposes.  In accordance with CDC guidelines aimed at conserving COVID tests for those who truly need them, and to avoid undue concern,  we do not plan to notify the entire membership or send mass emails when a positive case arises in the club. Our enhanced cleaning technology, procedures, and member etiquette guidelines greatly reduce the likelihood of general transmission within the club, even if someone with the virus happens to be at the club at the same time as you.

Disinfectant Spray

Powerhouse Gym uses EPA-approved disinfectant against COVID-19 as its standard cleaning fluid in the club. This active cleaning agent is effective while remaining harmless to humans. It is more powerful, and faster acting, than bleach and is a complete cleaning solution that can be used on all surfaces.

Disinfectant Wipes

All fitness areas throughout our facility have readily available disinfectant wipes for members to use. These wipes are powerful and safe EPA registered disinfectant wipes that are effective against 49 pathogens, including against viruses similar to COVID-19. Members are expected to wipe down all equipment and surfaces before and after use with wipes to provide quick and effective sanitation of commonly touched surfaces, as the first step in our 1-2 Cleaning Approach.

Hand Sanitizer Stations

Hand sanitizer stations are located throughout our facility. These alcohol-based sanitizers provide in excess of 70% ethyl alcohol, killing more than 99.99% of the most common germs in as little as 15 seconds. We have increased the visibility and quantity of these stations throughout our facilities, including at club check in and fitness floor.

No Contact Water Refill Station

A proximity sensor water station is located on the gym floor, offering touch-less water refills. All drinking fountains will be temporarily decommissioned and we are asking all members to use bottled water. Water bottles are available at the club for purchase.

Cardio & Strength: DIY Fitness Areas

Our primary fitness areas – cardio and strength – will support physical distancing between members, through modified equipment placement.

  • Strength benches and free weights will be spaced to allow for appropriate physical distancing, where possible. Otherwise, we will rely on members to practice safe physical distancing.

  • Accessory tools such as bands, ropes and other permeable items that may be difficult to properly sanitize between users will be removed from fitness areas.

  • Cardio will be spaced properly according to state & federal guidelines. If machines cannot be properly spaced, every other machine will be marked "not in use" to comply to the distancing guidelines.

  • Disinfecting wipes and hand sanitizer stations will be clearly sign marked and available throughout all fitness areas.

  • Members will be expected to wipe down each piece of equipment before and after each use. This practice will be supplemented by our housekeeping and fitness staff through the 1-2 Cleaning Approach.

  • Powerhouse Gym associates will be readily visible in all fitness areas, providing periodic cleaning and assurance of proper physical distancing.
