It’s finally here! We are grateful and cannot thank you enough for supporting us during our temporary closure. Healthworks Group is a small, family-owned business, and we would not be able to make it through these 16 long weeks without you. We are thrilled to send you this email announcing that Governor Baker has given gyms the green light to reopen on July 6 and July 13 in the City of Boston.
Healthworks Cambridge, Chestnut Hill and Coolidge Corner will reopen on Monday, July 6 at 7 AM! Healthworks Back Bay and Republic Fitness will reopen at Monday, July 13 at 7AM.
A part of our world-class safety plan we are requiring all members to reserve their spot ahead of time whether they are going to a class, running on a treadmill or working out on the strength floor. This will allow us to ensure appropriate physical distancing in our clubs and clean the club between each reservation block.
MA Safety Standards The Commonwealth also released their Safety Standards this afternoon. We are awaiting clarification on some points but we wanted to highlight a few key sections:
It appears that masks are required while inside a gym or studio even when working out. Until we hear otherwise, we will be enforcing this standard.
The required distance between workout stations appears to be larger than any other state. While we await clarification on these requirements we have closed more machines and workout squares. Please do not use any closed areas.
Yes! To help maintain proper physical distancing, we will require all members to sign up online for their Gym Time or Class.
How long are reservations?
All Gym Time Reservations are 75 minutes in length. We ask that you arrive during your reservation and leave promptly by the end of your reservation block to ensure we can properly disinfect the club between reservations.
For Class reservations, you may arrive 15 minutes before the class. Please leave promptly after the class ends.
How do I reserve Gym Time or Classes?
Through our new and improved member app. The reservation window for your spot begins 49 hours in advance. Be sure to reserve ahead of time, and cancel as soon as possible if something arises.
Can I book back to back gym time reservations for a longer workout?
During our initial re-opening phase, we ask that you only sign up for one slot per day to allow all members the opportunity to enjoy the club. We will monitor capacities closely and modify hours if needed.
