Dear Corso Fitness Family,

 

The Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment updated order 20-22 defining gymnasiums and extending the order through April 30th. 

 

“The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) is working to stop the spread of novel coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19). At this time I find it necessary to implement emergency measures to close down all bars, restaurants, theaters, gymnasiums and casinos in Colorado in an effort to protect and preserve the public health. This Order, originally issued on March 16, 2020, has been amended to close nonessential personal services facilities and racetrack and off-track pari-mutuel wagering facilities, exempt institutions of higher education in the services of meals, clarify that hotel dining services are not exempted other than in room dining services, add a definition of gymnasium, and extend the Order through April 30, 2020.  “Gymnasium” means a building or room used for indoor sports or exercise, such as fitness, dance, exercise or group classes, exercise studios and centers, recreation centers, bowling alleys, pools, and other indoor athletic facilities.”

 

Based on this information we must close our gym and studio through April 30th, 2020.  We have done everything we can to stay open and accessible to our members up until this point but can no longer do so in good faith.  We completely understand how important fitness is to our members and we encourage everyone to start and maintain a healthy home routine until we can re-open. 

 

We are suspending billing for the month of April since nobody will be able to access the gym.  Unless extended again we plan on resuming normal billing and normal business on May 1st at 0000 hours.  We will keep our website and social media updated with any changes but feel free to contact us with any questions.  We will still respond to phone calls and emails during this time.  We will not be idle as gym owners and plan on utilizing the “down time” to maximize the benefit to our members upon their return. 

 

In an effort to still provide some services Melanie will be instructing classes and posting them on Facebook.  If interested, please “like” us on Facebook and follow the class schedule.  We will continue to keep the same class schedule as if everything were normal to help maintain some sense of normalcy.  These videos will not be saved past the class time so please join us live in the comfort of your own home.  Like most of you, we are trying something new and figuring out how to make the best of the situation we find ourselves in.  Thank you for your continued membership and support. 

 

                We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as necessary.  We hope this situation resolves quickly and everyone takes care of each other.  Please contact us with any questions.

 

Live Healthy, Live Fit,

Dear Corso Fitness Family,

 

Governor Jared Polis gave a social distancing update referencing coronavirus (COVID-19) today, 03/16/20.  During his speech about closing restaurants to dine-in he made the comment: “We’re closing large places of gathering … gyms, theatres, and casinos, where large groups can gather.”  This caused immediate concern for our members.  During the speech he does not clarify that statement any further.  Based on that statement we will stay open as we do not qualify as a place of large gatherings. 

 

                We want to remind our members that we are a small, privately owned, membership only, fitness center.  We are not open to the public and do not allow drop-ins.  One of the compliments heard most often is how low volume our gym is.  We know one of the benefits of working out in a small-town gym is often having the gym to yourself or not having to wait for any equipment.  We looked at our current usage for the last two weeks and saw that it averages about 2.5 people an hour “keying” the front entry door.  Today President Donald Trump recommended that gatherings be kept to 10 people or less.  Based on our setup, members, and current attendance rates we are remaining open. 

 

                We are making a few changes to stay in line with what the CDC and WHO recommend:

  • Classes will be capped at 9 people (10 would be the instructor)

  • We will no longer be accepting new members to prevent members from large gyms flooding our current attendance

  • Members may no longer bring a guest with them

                This is a stressful time for everyone, and we want to be a resource for our community in the best way possible.  Providing a way for people to get out of the house, release some energy, live healthy, and live fit is what we intend to do.  As mentioned in our previous statement we have increased our cleaning of the gym and still have stock of cleaning supplies.  Everyone has been doing a great job of cleaning the equipment before and after.  We do not intend to close unless we run out of cleaning supplies or the current definition of large gatherings changes to include any business. 

 

                We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as necessary.  We hope this situation resolves quickly and everyone takes care of each other.  Please contact us with any questions.

 

Sincerely yours,

Melanie and Jeromy

Dear Corso Fitness Family,

We understand the growing concern surrounding coronavirus (COVID-19) across our communities and wanted to provide an update regarding the steps we are taking to keep our members safe.

Every day, as part of our regular operations, our facility is cleaned and sanitized. We provide gym wipes and hand sanitizer for our members to use in addition to the cleaning that we do daily. Recently, we've increased the frequency of cleanings, and are doing our best to keep additional supplies on hand to ensure that we can keep our standards so high.

As this situation continues to evolve, we will be monitoring it closely. We will continue to refer to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization and other public health agencies to determine the safest course of action for our members safety. We are remaining open for our members and are committed to providing the safest environment we can.

It's our privilege to have you as part of our fitness family and we hope everyone stays healthy and safe.


Sincerely yours,

Melanie and Jeromy
