Spring Lake Fitness and Aquatic Center to Reopen
The COVID-19 outbreak has caused a countless number of businesses to close their doors for several months. Now, as we have entered the fall season, some businesses are finally beginning to reopen. Not without new rules and regulations, however. With gyms closed throughout the spring and summer, it’s safe to say that many are eager to return and begin working out again. On Wednesday, September 9th, after being closed since March, the Spring Lake Fitness and Aquatic Center has reopened. Those who held memberships before the closing now have their memberships reactivated. If you are ready to hit the gym, here is what you need to know about the new FAC regulations.
Masks must be worn in the facility at all times, except for in the pool or showers. This includes while working out. The building and pool are each currently at 25% capacity. Only certain lockers are open for use, while the rest are closed with zip ties. This is to help follow social distancing guidelines. Speaking of social distancing guidelines, if you usually work out with a partner, that might be harder to achieve now. Only certain equipment is open for use, while the rest is marked off with caution tape. Also, certain areas are no longer open for use, such as the gym, sauna, and hot tub. That doesn’t mean you won’t be able to get a good workout in. When visiting the FAC, you will be pleased to see that most of the equipment you are used to is still there. Just be sure to visit between 5 am and 8:30 pm on a weekday or 7:30 am to 3:00 pm on a Saturday. The FAC is closed on Sundays.
While working out, make sure to keep your distance, keep your mask on, and clean the equipment you use. That way, we can keep the Fitness and Aquatic Center open for as long as possible.
