How To Keep Safe At The Gym

Posted November 23, 2020 by johnnyogym

Johnny O’s Gymnasium is South Florida’s Largest Outdoor Training Facility located in beautiful, Boca Raton. Johnny O’s Gymnasium proudly offers both indoor and outdoor training.
Gym safety has changed quite a bit from what we were used to. Before when one thought of gym safety it was using the equipment properly, seeking advice from a personal trainer as to how to properly target a specific area of the body effectively. Now, it is about sanitizing regularly and distancing yourself from others. Safety is the number one priority at Johnny O Gym located in Boca Raton.

Amongst the Covid-19 pandemic, some of the hardest things for many people was the closing of gyms. However, since opening gyms are working their hardest to keep you and others safe. It is important to protect yourself as well as others from the coronavirus while in a public place, this includes while working out.

While in the gym remember to follow the CDC guidelines of social distancing, washing hands regularly, and wearing a mask.

Wash Your Hands Before Entering and Clean all Equipment You Use

Covid-19 can live on a hard surface for at least 72 hours. To reduce the spread of the coronavirus it is so important to keep your hands sanitized and cleaned at all times. At Johnny O Gym we have provided a variety of sanitizing stations so that everyone who enters the gym knows we are working with you to provide a safe environment.

According to The World Health Organization (WHO), it is best to use a disinfectant wipe that contains at least 70-90% alcohol to prevent the spread of germs and viruses.

You will notice that gyms in Boca Raton may have different cleaning procedures and regulations. Some things that we are doing at our gym include limiting contact amongst personal trainers and clients and employees. Instead of high-fives, we are sticking to air -fives.

We have stocked our gym with medical-grade disinfectant sprays to ensure that all areas, especially high traffic/high touch areas are being properly sanitized. We have introduced electrostatic sprayers to actively clean all surfaces more effectively and efficiently.

Work Out Outdoors!

Living in Boca Raton you can expect beautiful weather almost year-round. This means exercising outside with your friend, personal trainer, or gym buddy has never been more enjoyable. The open airflow of working out outside will also create a safer environment and reduce the spread of Covid-19.

We at Johnny O Gym have the best outdoor covered facility in all of South Florida. We offer group classes outdoors that allow you to feel more comfortable while working out. Your certified personal trainer is an expert in providing you with the best workout for your goals. Along with outdoor cardio, your ideal body is waiting for you to achieve at Johnny O Gym located in Boca Raton.

Social Distancing Equals More Space to Exercise

In order to comply with social distancing to keep our city and gyms of Boca Raton as well as the rest of the world safe, we have social distancing in place. Since we are only able to operate at 50% capacity keeping your distance from others is very important to ensure our gym is following these guidelines.

We have limited group class sizes as well as blocked off/rotate the use of certain equipment in order to keep a socially distanced gym for the well-being of all. We understand that times are difficult for all, but we want you to know we care about all of you and are doing our best to keep our employees and clients safe.

If You Feel Sick Please Stay Home

In order to protect everyone and the gyms of Boca Raton, we ask that you please stay home if you feel sick, and if needed seek the attention of a doctor. We are in this together and only as strong as each other. Be considerate for the well being of your fellow gym buddies. We know things are tough, but we are doing our best to remain open by following guidelines that keep everyone safe.

Come Prepared for Personal Training

Bring everything you need before your personal training session. This includes your water, your mask, and the clothes you are wearing for your workout. Coming prepared and ready to go will limit physical contact.

How Can You Protect Yourself at the Gym?

One way to protect yourself is to go during less busy times of the day to the gym. This will allow you to keep a safe distance from others. Staying at least six feet apart from others is important and what the CDC recommends, but while working out people tend to breathe heavier. This results in more germs particles floating throughout the air.

Be sure to disinfect any workout equipment before and after use. Try to avoid touching your face and eyes as much as possible. Bringing your own towel to wipe away any sweat will protect you, but the employees working hard to maintain a safe, sanitized gym for all.

Small Steps That Make a Big Difference in Safety

Ditch Your Phone

On average a person touches their phone 2,617 times a day. Our phones carry a variety of germs that people do not think to disinfectant as often as our equipment at Johnny O Gym. By ditching your phone you are stopping the spread of germs and letting yourself focus on your work out.

Wear Comfortable Clothing

Wearing comfortable clothing minimizes how much you will adjust and touch your outfit. Wearing clothing that is comfortable and allows you to breathe through it will stop the spread of germs as well.

At Johnny O Gym located in Boca Raton, we want you to know that we care. We care about protecting the gym as well as all members of it. We ask that you please wash your hands often, wipe down any equipment thoroughly, and limit physical contact. By following these steps we will be able to remain open to better serve you.

Our employees and personal trainers are taking the necessary steps to sanitize daily and promote social distancing. We encourage you to take advantage of our outdoor facilities during these times of hardship.
