NEW MEMBERS: One month of personal training for $89 with no commitment to join.
Because it does. Simply stated, if someone gets sick in our studio, we are forced to close for a period of time. And we don't want that to happen.
But it's also because we care about each other, a sentiment that runs deep due to the nature of our business. In traditional gyms where hundreds of people walk through the door on a daily basis, faces become recognizable, but personalities less so. And in traditional personal training studios, clients may be like ships passing in the night, never really getting to know each other at all.
Fast forward to Loveland Strength & Fitness, where two or three people may be simultaneously working out - each in their own section of the gym. They are spread out (oftentimes by 10' or more), but close enough to get to know each other over the weeks and months and years.
So, social distancing and constant cleaning (as overseen by the trainers) isn't done simply because it's required; it's done because it shows respect for those whom we have come to know and care about.
Loveland Strength & Fitness has earned the Connecticut Covid-19 Prevention Certificate.
Upon entering the 2500 square foot studio, your trainer will direct you to one of four training areas, each complete with the equipment you will need for that workout, along with hand sanitizer, alcohol spray, paper towels, and a garbage pail.
Clients may be directed to exit their training area to work out on the green turf, such as for the Sled-Pull or Footwork, but in those instances, the trainer will ensure that a minimum of six feet is maintained from all others, including from the trainer him- or herself.
Our model of personal training - enabling only a few people to work out at once - provides a unique opportunity for clients who work out around the same time of day to get to know each other. We believe that this personal experience contributes to our high levels of consideration and respect for each other in terms of cleaning and social distancing.
Oftentimes, after the initial warmup, your trainer will direct you to regenerative tissue equipment (such as Voodoo Floss, the SuperNova, or the Nub) for several minutes of deep tissue work before your workout begins. After use, this equipment gets cleaned and returned to its place.
Other equipment, such as dumbells, the hanging bar, the TRX or the Accu-Mobility Ball, may be used repetitively during a workout and are not cleaned until after all repetitions are completed.
Equipment is not shared with others during a workout, unless two people who live together are working out together in the same section.
Our trainers watch over everything that occurs in the gym, taking responsibility for client social distancing and the cleaning of equipment. They remind clients to clean all items, and they confirm with clients that all equipment has been cleaned prior to leaving. They also direct people as they enter and exit the gym to ensure that people don't come within six feet.
I felt so safe at Loveland Strength and fitness that I continued to work out through my 9th month of pregnancy in August, 2020. Jeff always keeps the gym very clean, socially distancing himself (and us) and always made us feel comfortable. - S.L.
I really like the way that Jeff doesn't just leave it up to the clients to remember to socially distance and clean everything as we use it. He watches and stays on top of everything and constantly reminds people to do what they need to do in order to keep the place safe. When people are entering and exiting the gym, he keeps people away from each other. He makes sure we clean everything down. It doesn't take away from the workouts at all - it just feels normal at this point. After all these years at LSF, I'm grateful to be able to keep coming here and feel safe. - M.A.
I feel very safe because Jeff is so attentive to the need for distance and cleanliness, and he's maintained this and has not relapsed at all, not loosened up at all on his restrictions. - E.A.
I spoke extensively with Jeff and discussed my fears related to Covid. We worked out a few options until I felt comfortable coming back into his gym. I'm thrilled to share that my fears about exposure to Covid in the gym have diminished and now I'm back into a workout routine thanks to all of the measures Jeff has taken to ensure my safety. He truly cares about the safety and well-being of his clients and I'm very happy to be back! Thanks Jeff for making your gym a safe place to find a little "normalcy" during these crazy times. -J.C.
I feel safe at the studio. Jeff makes it a priority to ensure all safety measures and risk reduction steps are implemented - all while providing an enjoyable experience. -J.M.
