We want you to have the best experience possible and feel confident while staying fit. Here’s what you can expect:

Reservations

In addition to following all LA Department of Public Health and Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regulations for health clubs, we now have a reservation system in place to ensure social distancing and minimize capacity. All areas of fitness including the pool will be open as of July 1st and MUST BE RESERVED prior to your arrival.

  • The Weight Room, Cardio Deck and Pool will require reservations to limit capacity and ensure social distancing.
  • All Group Fitness classes will require reservations. The first phase of our reopening will include a modified Group Fitness schedule to support physical distancing. We will monitor and adjust classes to meet our members’ needs. Digital classes will continue with a modified schedule.

How do I make a reservation for the Weight Room, Cardio Deck or Group Fitness classes?

Until our mobile app is ready to launch, please call the Front Desk at 323.851.6000 to reserve a time for ALL your fitness activities including Group Exercise Classes, Weight Room, Pool and Cardio Deck. We cannot accommodate walk-ins at this time since we now monitor capacity and practice social distancing in all areas of the facility. Once our app is ready you will be able to reserve a time slot for the Weight Room, Cardio Deck, Pool or Group Fitness classes from the convenience of your phone or desktop computer.

  • Gym use and classes are one hour
  • Pool and Cardio Deck are booked for half an hour
  • Jacuzzi and Sauna will remain closed until restrictions are lifted

Group Fitness classes will be available to book 3 days in advance for now and eventually you will be able to book up to 4 days before your workout. Please select carefully since this time will be assigned to you and there is limited capacity. We will add classes each week, if necessary. We are launching fitness (Weight Room, Pool and Cardio Deck) gradually but we want to accommodate our members so we will adjust the schedule each week depending on demand.

What to Expect

The maximum number per area has been determined to be: 5 for Lobby, 8 for Weight Room, 5 for Cardio Deck, 7 for Group Exercise, 6 for Spin, 2 for the Pool and 4 for Locker Rooms. The middle lane of the pool will be closed at all times to ensure 6-foot distancing. Signs will be posted, and we kindly ask for your compliance to these maximum occupancy guidelines.

Personal Protective Equipment

  • Per updated California guidelines issued July 1, 2020, fitness members are required to wear face coverings and disposable gloves at all times while taking Group Exercise classes or while using the Weight Room and Cardio Deck. The only exceptions are while exercising outdoors when maintaining at least 6 feet distance from others, for those playing tennis or swimming or anyone who falls in the category as determined exempt by the state. The new guidance is part of an effort to stem the recent surge of COVID-19 cases in California. 
  • Club staff will wear protective face coverings and gloves while on duty with the exception of outside duties.

Physical Distancing

  • Spacing signage to maintain a 6-foot distance is located throughout the facility to support physical distancing practices. Adherence to minimum 6-foot physical distancing will be required.
  • One-way flow prioritized and indicated wherever possible. Doors will be left open to limit contact and encourage air circulation.
  • Plexiglass partitions at check-in to limit exposure and contact with Front Desk staff.
  • To support touchless check-in and expedite Club access we ask that all members swipe their membership card as they enter the Club.
  • Due to physical distancing and capacity requirements, members are only allowed in the Club while exercising or using the locker rooms. Members will not be permitted to remain in the Club to socialize.
