There is currently a nationwide effort to stop the spread of the Coronavirus. At Fit 2-20, we want to take an intelligent approach to prevention, while still getting the health-promoting benefits of proper exercise.
Here are the hygiene procedures we are following to promote your health and safety.
- We wash our hands frequently and use an effective hand sanitizer before AND after every session. We encourage each of our clients to do the same thing.
- We sanitize all door handles, bathroom surfaces, and water spigots multiple times each day. We sanitize fitness equipment after each use.
- Our sessions are private, supervised, and last less than half an hour. This means there are rarely more than 2-3 people in the building, so you can still promote your health and fitness while keeping your general exposure to a minimum.
- Our space is kept at a cool 68 degrees. Normally, indoor heating dries out the air to very low humidity, making it easier for coughs and sneezes to evaporate and spread. This is partly why colds and cases of flu are more prolific in winter. Because Fit 2-20 is kept cool, viruses have a tougher time staying airborne on evaporated water droplets. The general lack of sweating is another huge hygiene bonus of training in a cool studio.
Here is what we encourage you to do to ensure your health and the health of our community.
- Wash your hands thoroughly, before training. Practice the habit of not touching your face.
- Make yourself robust. Obesity, hypertension, diabetes, and poor fitness all increase the risk of pneumonia from a respiratory infection. In addition to helping address these risk factors, one-way resistance training builds resilience is by heightening your immune function. There is now evidence that it can even reverse the age-related loss in immune function.
- Do Not come in sick! If you feel even a little unwell please cancel your session and reschedule for a later date.
- Live a healthy lifestyle. Sleep is crucial for immune health. To optimize your sleep avoid sugary foods, computer and TV screens, and alcohol in the 2-3 hour period prior to bed, as each of these can disrupt sleep quality. After sleep, your focus should be on promoting optimal health with a protein-rich, whole foods diet that avoids deficiency in vitamins such as A, C, and D, and minerals such as zinc and selenium.
As always, thank you for trusting us with your health! We take your confidence seriously and take pride in helping you build a healthier, more robust version of yourself.
