Are you ready to go back to the gym yet?
Here's what 24 Hour Fitness might look like in the future.
According to FOX 11 Los Angeles, 24 Hour Fitness has almost 450 clubs, 22,000 employees, and some 3.5 million members have spent the last two months figuring out how to make the gym model work amidst the coronavirus crisis.
The club's CEO, Tony Ueber, says they're ready to reopen with modifications.
“The most important is we’re going to open the clubs for an hour at a time; let people come in and workout, then we'll close the club for 30 minutes in order to do a deep cleaning. And then open it back up for another 60-minute segment,” says Ueber.
Ueber says the hour on, 30 minutes off will give cleaning crews the opportunity to thoroughly disinfect throughout the day.
Another big change: members will need to make a reservation to workout using the 24GO app.
The reservation system also allows each club to limit the number of people inside a gym, at any given time. As members might expect, some machines will be blocked off to allow for physical distancing in both the cardio and free weight areas.
