Total Fitness Membership Concerns

The Staff and Management of Total Fitness Clubs appreciate your patience and understanding as we all try to navigate through the next few weeks of this State of Emergency.

Rest assured Total Fitness Clubs will not be billing any members for their April membership until we re-open. If we have not re-opened by April 1st, Total Fitness will not bill you for your April membership at that time.

Based on what day that we reopen, Total Fitness Clubs will provide for a process to Prorate members dues for the month of April.

For those members concerned about the balance of their March membership due to our closing the clubs on March 17, 2020, because of the State of Emergency, please reply to this email with your full name and key tag number and we will make every effort to credit a portion of your March dues to your account and apply it to your April dues payment.

Over the next few weeks, please remember to support all your local businesses during this most challenging of times.

Stay Well,

Geoff Morin

Health and Safety Updates Regarding the COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

At Total Fitness, the health and safety of our members, colleagues and Personal Trainers is our top priority. Here is an update on the actions we are taking to respond to Coronavirus.

Like many businesses in the area, we are closely monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and the information provided by Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We wanted to update you on the actions we are taking to respond to COVID-19 and to reassure you that we are prepared, with a clear action plan in place.

What is Total Fitness doing?

In line with CDC guidance, we have increased the level of cleaning and hygiene in our gyms:

Increased frequency of cleaning to sanitize all equipment, especially high use areas such as pin pads, door handles, lockers, equipment, etc.

Ensuring soap dispensers remain filled in all toilets and changing rooms.

Ensuring hand sanitizer dispensers remain filled and encourage members to use them. They can be found in several places around the gyms.

Continuing to remind members of the importance of good hygiene in the gym.

Within Total Fitness, we have advised all colleagues and Personal Trainers on what to do when returning from foreign travel, in line with CDC recommendations.

As a member, how can you help?

Total Fitness members are encouraged to help reduce the spread of illness through good personal hygiene. This includes frequent hand-washing during your visits and covering your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing.

We also kindly request that you familiarize yourself with the latest guidance from CDC and do not visit the gym if you are displaying symptoms of COVID 19 and are advised to self-isolate.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely, adapt our plans as necessary, and keep you updated on any changes. We thank you for your co-operation and look forward to continuing to welcome you to our gyms.
