The fitness franchise has reopened another one of its clubs with new social distancing guidelines and enhanced cleaning procedures.
Blink Fitness’ Virginia Beach club reopened yesterday, with modified hours, in accordance with local and state guidelines. The abbreviated hours will allow for thorough cleaning and disinfecting procedures overnight.
The reopened Virginia Beach club will be operating at 30 per cent capacity on a first-come, first-served basis. Consistent with CDC and local guidelines, Blink recommends members wear masks when entering the gym and when they are within 10 feet of another person.
All employees will be wearing masks and gloves at all times. Staff will be taking the temperatures of members and employees as they enter the gym. Per local guidelines, any member or employee with a temperature of 100.4°F or higher will not be given access to the gym. All further protocols and safety details can be found at Blink Promise.
As gyms begin to reopen, memberships will be unfrozen, and billing will resume on a normal schedule. However, the brand has offered members the option to refreeze their membership for an additional 30 days at no cost, if they feel uncomfortable about returning to a gym.
“At Blink Fitness, our members’ health and wellness have always been a top priority,” said Virginia Beach club owner, Carlos Gavidia. “This is the Blink standard.”
