JFKFFC Class cancellation & Safety Etiquette Rules

JFKFFC Members,

Given the CDC’c strong recommendation to limit social gathering we will be suspending group exercise classes effective immediately. We will reconsider this decision in two weeks and provide an update at that time. For the time being, the fitness facility will remain open pending building access (this is up to GSA Building Management). As always, use of the fitness center is at your own risk. To minimize exposure members are urged to follow the safety etiquette rules listed below. Alternative fitness facility workout options are also provided below.

9 CORONAVIRUS SAFETY ETIQUETTE RULES TO FOLLOW AT THE GYM:
1. Avoid touching your face: Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
2. Don’t be too social: Avoid close contact with your fellow fitness aficionados. Avoid kissing and hugging, and sharing water bottles.
3. Wash your hands: Wash your hands using hot, soapy water for 20 seconds—this is the best way to control transmission in normal, healthy adults.
4. Use the cleaning products provided: Utilize the disinfectant solution and paper towels available on the club floor to wipe down machines and equipment after use.
5. Use a towel: It is suggested to bring a towel and lay it on your mat/machine so that you have a barrier between you and that machine.
6. Stay home if you are sick: For your well-being and the well-being of others, if you’re sick please stay home and take care of yourself.
7. Wear the right gear: Consider wearing long workout clothing, for example long sleeves instead of sports bras, because that protects your skin from hosting the virus and bringing it close to your mucus membranes (that’s your face, basically).
8. Wear gloves: Aside from minimizing contact with dirty surfaces, they could also help you learn not touch your face.
9. Avoid peak times: Avoiding the crowds means there won’t be a lot of people touching equipment at the same time.
