We want to maximize safety in these crazy times, so please read before attending class.

  1. ARE YOU SICK (running a fever, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea)??? Then don’t train, you moron! This should be common courtesy at any time with any communicable disease, but especially now! You getting in a workout, while risking everyone else getting sick is really selfish, and makes you an ASSHOLE! Wait a few days after the symptoms completely go away. If you have a confirmed COVID diagnosis, the wait 7-10 days after the symptoms are completely gone.
  2. WERE YOU EXPOSED TO SOMEONE WHO WAS SICK WITH COVID? Please wait a week until you return. COVID has a few day incubation period, so you could be giving it to people without even knowing it. Don’t be a selfish asshole and just take 3-4 days off. Even better, get a COVID test to confirm that you are negative.
  3.  YOU ARE NOT SICK NOR EXPOSED TO SOMEONE WHO WAS SICK? Come train! We don’t require it, but please get vaccinated against COVID-19. If you are immunocompromised or live with someone who is, then please message Red for private training.
