COVID-19 Updates

UPDATED: May 28, 2020

Body Zone Sports and Wellness Complex is closed until further notice with the exception of Body Zone Physical Therapy and our Summer Adventure Camp which begins the week of June 8.

In response to Governor Wolf’s statewide mandate to close all non-essential businesses, Body Zone is closed, with the exception of Body Zone Physical Therapy, an essential ambulatory health care service until further notice — and as mandated by state government.

Now in its 18th year, Summer Adventure Camp will welcome campers ages 5-13 back to our massive open spaces with heightened safety measures that go beyond the guidelines prescribed by the CDC.

We do not have an exact reopening date for our fitness and aquatics center at this time. But we have put serious thought and planning into the right way to reopen Body Zone so we can safely welcome you all back. As a business built on the premise of building relationships through wellness, we believe our role in the community is as important as ever before. Our goal is to present our “Back In The Zone” reopening plan to all of you soon — to prepare you for a safe and healthy return to fitness at Body Zone.

Until we are together again, we invite our members and community to visit, “BZ @ Home,” our menu of free, live and online fitness classes and original health and wellness resources to keep you engaged, de-stressed and active outside of the club. Info for “BZ @ Home” is located here: https://bodyzonesports.com/bz-at-home/

As always, your health, safety and peace of mind is our top priority that’s why we want to communicate Body Zone efforts that impact you like cleaning and disease prevention protocol, program and operation updates and more. Please check back often, we will be frequently updating this page.

We are very appreciative of your support and patience as we work through all of this — it’s an unprecedented situation with lots of moving parts and we want you to know we are doing our best to do the right thing for all of you: members, patients, customers, community and our amazing staff.

Enhanced Facility-Wide Cleaning Protocol

Per Center of Disease Control (CDC) guidelines, we’ve cleaned and disinfected every spot in our facility from top to bottom, and have serious plans to keep it that way:

  • We will continue to follow stringent sanitation procedures for proper disinfection. Although we have 24-hour janitorial service already dedicated to this function, our reopening task force has assembled a new department devoted to enhanced cleaning via a daily schedule with assigned jobs and tasks.
  • Like always, our dedicated cleaning team will use an EPA-registered, medical-grade disinfectant used to kill viruses like COVID-19 on all equipment, studios, floors and high touch surfaces: sanitation stations, doorknobs, handles, rails, light switches, keyboards, you name it.
  • Our “mister crew” will utilize our new air-assisted misting machines (of medical-grade disinfectant) to sanitize and disinfect around the clock, and on a pre-determined daily schedule organized by our task force. Why a mister? It allows us to spray evenly, gets hard to reach surfaces and clings to every surface it coats. Why an air driven mister? Research shows that an air driven mister is more effective than electrostatic distribution because forced air doesn’t compromise the stability of the disinfectant.

  • Look for many more self-cleaning stations throughout the building consisting of EPA-registered hand wipes and hand gel of 70% alcohol and higher. Let’s keep Body Zone healthy together! Please clean your equipment before and after use.
  • We are going touch free with soap and towel dispensers and most doors.

Let’s Keep Body Zone Healthy Together

We can all do our part to stop the spread of disease per these CDC and World Health Organization (WHO) COVID-19 safety guidelines:

  • Keep your hands clean. Wash your hands before and after you work out or play at Body Zone. Hand washing guidelines are located in all locker rooms and here. We also encourage you to use hand sanitation stations (60% or more alcohol) located throughout the fitness, aquatics and physical therapy areas. This infographic shows you how to properly handrub hand sanitizer.
  • Disinfectant wipe stations are located throughout the main weight floor, track, cardio loft, stretching mat areas and group fitness studios. As always, please wipe all equipment before and after use.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve when you sneeze/cough.
  • Properly dispose of tissues, paper towels and wipes in trash receptacles.
  • Please stay home if you are sick. Body Zone staff is encouraged to stay home if they are ill or have a fever.
  • Overall, focus on maintaining your health. See specific CDC recommendations here.
