HEALTH AND WELLNESS GUIDELINES

To ensure a safe facility with safe programs for our members, the YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region has created and will uphold the following guidelines for the Healthy Living Center.

  • Members are encouraged to wear masks while using our facility.
  • Appropriate workout attire must be work. Full-length shirts and gym shoes are required. Cropped t-shirts, offensive shirts, sandals or open toe shoes are not permitted.
  • Wipe down all machines, benches, and equipment with the provided solution and towel when you are finished using them.
  • Allow others to rotate in while using weight machines, especially during busy times.
  • All weights and training accessories should be returned to the provided racks.
  • Please limit time to 30 minutes on cardio equipment when others are waiting.
  • Closed-toe shoes must be worn at all times.
  • Abstain from the use of profanity and abusive language.
  • Please see a fitness instructor for an orientation if unfamiliar with any equipment.
  • Only water bottles are permitted in the Healthy Living Center. No other food is permitted in the Healthy Living Center.
  • Elevation training masks are not allowed to be used in YMCA facilities.
  • Only YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region certified staff are allowed to utilize YMCA facilities and equipment for individual or group personal training and/or coaching services.

SOCIAL DISTANCING

All members will be required to practice social distancing while inside the YMCA. In some cases, the availability of equipment, features and space will be limited to ensure members are able to maintain the recommended six feet of separation. Signage has been placed throughout the building to assist you in maintaining safe distances. 

MASKS

All individuals are required to wear a medical or non-medical face-covering (mask) while in a facility to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Members may remove their mask temporarily if the mask interferes with their ability to safely perform an activity, but members must always have a mask immediately available and wear it as much as possible. Masks must be worn while entering and moving around all indoor YMCA-operated facilities. You do not need to wear a mask while swimming. However you will need to wear one on the pool deck or anywhere inside of the facility.
