Coronavirus at CrossFit Gyms Update March 12th


Since the first news of Covid-19 We’ve:
• Increased our disinfection efforts at the gym in frequency and intensity. Including every handle, bar, wallball, barbell, PVC, KB, DB, etc.
• You, our members, have become so OCD, and you’re cleaning like it’s a part of a superset, EMOM, Tabata.. you get the idea and we thank you.
• We’re hearing more singing from the bathrooms lately (“Happy Birthday to Me” is a top choice) while washing hands for 20+ seconds!

And as of Thursday, March 12th, we are implementing the following:
• We have removed the iPad Check-In kiosk. Coaches will now check in athletes at the beginning of class.
• We have removed all chalk buckets. Athletes may bring their own chalk for use.
• We have removed partner workouts, and workouts with shared equipment.
• As much as we love giving out high fives, and fist bumps, we will temporarily switch to our most sincere salutes, tips of the hat, and other hands free ways of encouraging you!

We have several solutions for those choosing to social distance themselves from the gym or who are stuck at home with kiddos, etc. We’ve created an online “Home Warrior” training plan just for our members. You can view this on SugarWod, download the app and add CrossFit Roseville as your gym. Email me if you have questions on how to access these

We have asked our members to help in these efforts by washing their hands frequently, disinfecting all equipment and surfaces they touch when at the gym, covering their mouth if they cough or sneeze, and staying home if they feel ill.

This is an evolving situation and we are monitoring it closely to ensure all proper precautions are being taken to ensure everyone feels safe coming to class.

We will all continue to work together to keep the gym as germ free as possible so it can remain a space where our members can escape from the stress and worries of our lives in the midst of such challenging times!

Our mission is to continue to provide our members with the best support to remain healthy and strong during this very weird/challenging time.

We are grateful that the majority of our members get it and are with us for the long haul. We’re here to support everyone whether they choose to train with us in person or in the comforts of their own home. For those who have had their hours cut back, we will work with you. Please reach out if you need our support.

Thanks for reading this long email. We’ll keep you posted on any changes. Thank you so so much for all your support and not leading with fear during this time.

We encourage everyone to follow these best practices listed below to help keep yourself and others healthy.
We are following similar communications also shared by large corporations in our state and ask the following of our staff and members:

Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Avoid shaking hands, giving hi-fives or fist pumps. Thumbs up is good for now!
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Stay home when you are sick.
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
If you have traveled to China, South Korea, Japan, Italy, and Iran we require you to self-quarantine for 14 days post-travel before returning to CFRV.
