***Do not personal train or exercise if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms***

 

COVID-19 Policies and Procedures

  • Personal trainers and clients are required to wear a mask at all times even while exercising.
  • The fitness equipment has been spaced out approximately 10'
  • Maintain 6' distance from others including while working with a personal trainer if you are not exercising and 10' distance while exercising.
  • It is imperative that patrons scale back their workout intensity and slowly progress while exercising with a mask on.  If the patron feels any symptoms such as dizziness, light headedness, shortness of breath, nausea, inform the trainer/staff immediately and sit down or lay down.  If symptoms worsen, lay down.  Patrons may experience symptoms while at rest between sets/after exercise.
  • Additional disinfectant and towel stations are placed throughout the facility to clean fitness equipment.  Please clean fitness equipment (anything touched including machines, attachments, collars, weight plates, barbells, balls, etc.) before and after use by spraying the disinfectant on a towel and then cleaning the equipment.  Staff will be cleaning more than usual, but it does not guarantee that the equipment has been cleaned prior to use by a staff member or another patron.
  • Please wash hands before and after exercise.  Hand sanitizer is also placed throughout the building.
  • Please read and follow policies and procedures on signage posted throughout the building.
  • Bring your own water bottle or empty water bottle to fill at water bottle filling stations.  Water fountains with the push-bar are closed.

Wearing a Mask while Exercising

According to the American Council on Exercise (ACE), wearing a mask during exercise provides the greatest protection to preventing the transmission of COVID-19. However, those with underlying conditions such as cardiovascular and pulmonary conditions, who are older adults, or are pregnant should avoid wearing a mask or take extreme caution when wearing a mask during exercise, such as exercising at a low intensity. 

When wearing a mask while exercising, it is imperative that patrons scale back their workout intensity and slowly progress their workout because perceived effort increases when wearing a mask, especially if a patron has not been exercising regularly.  If a patron feels any symptoms such as dizziness, light headedness, shortness of breath, nausea, inform the KU Recreation Services’ staff immediately and sit down or lay down.  If symptoms worsen, lay down.  Patrons may experience symptoms while exercising, in between sets, or after exercise.  The side effects are known to affect balance in older adults.

It is recommended to wear a moisture resistant mask to reduce moisture around the mouth.  The mask should also be antimicrobial, have 3-4 layers, be breathable, comfortable, and durable. It’s recommended to bring a second dry mask to change into after your workout. Gaiters covering the nose, mouth, and neck trap heat to keep you warm but are not effective at dissipating heat during exercise.  Masks must fit properly and must cover the nose at all times.
