Alert iconFitness Training Centre update - Welcome back

Beginning August 10, Clarington will reopen its fitness training centre located at Courtice Community Complex. To ensure physical distancing and following all health and safety protocols, the fitness training centre will reopen with limited capacity and pre-registered one-hour workout time slots.

During the initial phase of our facility reopening, members can expect to see some changes. With the guidance of provincial and regional health authorities and leading fitness-industry experts, we’ve implemented new policies and procedures to ensure our members and staff are kept safe.

Due to the fluid nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, the guidelines below are subject to change based on new advice from local health officials and ongoing evaluation.

Advanced registration and limited capacity
  • The Fitness Centre will have capacity limits to meet physical distancing requirements, and pre-registration for hour-long sessions will be required.
  • Registration can be done online at www.clarington.net/BeACTIVE, or by telephone 905-623-3379 ext. 2552. Phone registration is open Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
  • Registration will open on Tuesdays at 8 a.m. for the upcoming week Friday through Thursday. Members and pay-as-you-go users will be limited to one booking per day.
Pre-screening and arrival
  • Please arrive no more than ten minutes ahead of your scheduled time and line up in designated spots outside of the facility. Everyone arriving at the facility will be required to undergo a screening process before being admitted.
  • Members will need to scan their card at the front customer service desk, and at the gym entrance. New members or first-time pay-as-you-go participants will be required to attend the customer service desk; some additional paperwork is required.
Physical distancing and equipment
  • Strict two-metre physical distancing will be enforced throughout the facility, including in the fitness area. Some equipment will be marked as unavailable for use to assist with physical distancing.
  • Members will not be able to use machines adjacent to those currently in use if it would mean that you cannot maintain a two-metre distance.
  • Yoga mats, yoga blocks and straps, resistance bands and tubes, exercise balls, foam rollers, neck pads, belts and the stretching platform have been temporarily removed.
  • Members will need to respect any markers guiding traffic or distancing throughout the facility.
  • Members should not share equipment with or spot other members who do not live in their household. 
Cleaning
  • Prior to reopening, the facility and all equipment have been thoroughly cleaned and disinfected.  
  • After each 60-minute workout block, the gym will close for 30-minutes to allow staff to conduct a deep cleaning and sanitization of equipment and high-touch points in the gym.
  • Participants are asked to sanitize all equipment with the available wipes before and after use.
  • Hand sanitizing stations will be available throughout the facility.
Use of masks
  • Participants will be required to wear a mask as they make their way through the facility to and from the fitness centre. Masks are not required during your workout.
Personal training
  • Personal training and consultations will be temporarily unavailable during the initial phase of our reopening.
  • Certified Personal Trainers will be on-site and available to answer your questions or assist you with operating equipment.
Amenities

When you first return, some amenities will be temporarily unavailable:

  • Change rooms and lockers will be temporarily closed. We ask that members arrive ready to workout and bring as little with them as possible. Small personal items will need to be kept with members in pockets or belt-bags as they move through the facility.
  • Showers and saunas will be temporarily closed. An accessible washroom will be available for patron use in the Program Room.
  • Water fountains will be available for filling bottles only. You will not be able to drink directly from them.
  • Magazines will not be available at this time.
  • Group fitness classes will not be available during the initial reopening phase. These will commence at a later date. Stayed tuned to the Municipal social media and webpage www.clarington.net/COVID-19 for all updates.
Memberships
  • As of Monday, August 10, all Fitness Centre memberships will be reactivated. All members will receive an extension for the length of the closure plus one complimentary week. There is no need for any action on your part to obtain the extension.
  • If for any reason you do not wish to reactivate, please provide your request in writing to communityservices@clarington.net or phone 905-623-3379 ext. 2505 as soon as possible for a hassle-free cancellation of your membership.
  • If you are unable to attend your registered time, please contact us to withdraw your registration or transfer to another date, at least one day in advance. You can reach our team Monday to Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at 905-623-3379 ext. 2552. Those who register for workout times and do not show up may lose the ability to pre-register in the future.
