Dear Gravity Members,

I hope you are in good health and spirits. It has been a while since we have reached out to you. We have been busy doing all things necessary for getting Gravity back up and running. We closed the gym on March 15, and are happy to announce our two phases of re-opening starting May 18th! Please read this letter carefully, as there is important information regarding opening Gravity Fitness & Tennis back up.

We will be executing a soft opening on Monday, May 18th. This is in compliance with Governor Little’s phases of re-opening the state of Idaho. We have executed our previously outlined sanitization protocols and feel ready to begin certain activities for the second half of May:

  2. Police Officers, Sheriff, and First Responders

  2. Personal Training
  3. Private Lessons

This Phase I will allow us to get a feel for our new protocols designed to keep everyone safe, and give our staff time to implement these protocols, as well as give our true heroes in our community a chance to work out!

Phase II Opening

If all goes well in our community keeping the COVID-19 infections down, and we feel good about how our new protocols are working, we will fully open the gym on June 1, 2020. We are excited and have worked extremely hard to get to this point. We appreciate your patience, and want you to know that we have put a lot of time, money, and energy into getting to this phase. We feel you will be pleased with all we have done to improve the club. We have created an environment that is as safe as possible for you to enjoy your training. We cannot wait to get you all back in there!

Face Mask Policy

Due to the installation of our Clean Science Solutions H202/ionizing filters that were placed in every duct in the club, as well as our implementation of proper social distancing at Gravity, we are not requiring face masks for:

  • Members of the club who are working out
  • Personal Trainers, Tennis Coaches, Group X Instructors, and Martial Arts Instructors

The following will be required to wear masks at Gravity at all times:

  • Gravity Employees
  • Child Care Employees, and kids older than two (2) years of age

We ask those of you who choose not to wear masks while working out at Gravity to follow proper social distancing protocols, and show an overall awareness of your space as it relates to the people around you. If we are disciplined and make the new etiquettes put into place part of our training routines and habits, the gym will have a better chance of staying open.

When To Stay Home And NOT Use Gravity Fitness And Tennis Facilities

We shouldn’t have to say this, but please stay away from Gravity Fitness And Tennis if you have any symptoms that would relate towards getting sick. Only come if you feel healthy please!

Mind Body App

All activities at Gravity Fitness & Tennis must be scheduled through our branded App prior to coming to the gym. There is a maximum capacity for everything in the gym so that we can keep people spread out. Luckily, we have a huge gym with lots of space, so I don’t see a problem scheduling what you want. There will be a time limit on how far in advance you can schedule an activity which is two weeks (14 days). The following are max capacities for the various spaces in our gym:

  • Gym (including main gym and Functional Training Room (30)
  • Functional Training Room for classes (20)
  • Group X Room (10)
  • Zen Den or yoga room (8)
  • Do Jang or martial arts room (15)
  • Child Care (8)
  • Tennis (4 people maximum per court)
