SLSC is open under Illinois’s Phase 5 guidelines. Check out our response to Covid-19 here.

Covid-19

Last updated March 6th, 2022.

Chicago has moved into a “lower transmission” tier for Covid metrics, and has lifted most guidelines for Chicago businesses.

When creating our plan to operate with Covid, we have three groups of stakeholders in mind:
  1. Our members
  2. Our staff
  3. The larger community
In reopening our reopening plans, we have a responsibility to these groups to:
  • Prioritize safety
  • Implement additional protocols for social distancing and cleanliness
  • Adhere closely to Chicago’s reopening guidelines — note that Chicago’s guidelines differ from the guidelines for the rest of the state
Simultaneously, we are focused on our members’ health and fitness through training.We recognize that many people’s priorities have changed away from physically challenging workouts to safely resuming some sort of normal routine and prioritizing health over other training goals.Here’s how we are responding to COVID-19 at SLSC to ensure that your health and safety is our top priority, and here’s what you should expect when coming into the gym.

Vaccines

Vaccination is Required for all Gyms, Restaurants, and Indoor Venus in Chicago
As of January 3rd, all gyms, restaurants, and indoor venues are required to verify vaccination status.Your vaccine card, a photo of your vaccine card, or a digital record of your vaccination works.We will add your vaccination status to our system, so you only need to verify your status once.

Masks

Masks are Required for all indoor locations in chicago
With current transmission rates, Chicago has reinstated mask requirements for all indoor locations.
Masks are available at the gym
Forget your mask? Have a thick mask that’s not ideal for working out? We have masks available for purchase.

VENTILATION AND CLEANING

Air circulation
When weather allows, we open our garage door to maximize air circulation. We also have several HEPA filters rated for large spaces throughout the gym.
All equipment is disinfected after each session
We’ve built in a buffer between sessions for all equipment used during each session to be wiped down with disinfectant that kills viruses like SARS-CoV-2.
High touch surfaces are disinfected regularly throughout the day
We’ve made it part of our standard operating procedures to disinfect frequently touched surfaces like doorknobs, iPads, and bathroom sinks. Let’s not forget about high-touch equipment like pull-up bars and bikes — we clean those too. Even if Covid-19 doesn’t tend to transmit as much on surfaces, there are plenty of other critters that do.
Daily Deep Cleaning
We deep clean the gym floor and equipment — every day. Period.

session sign up

Members must pre-register for classes
In order to maintain capacity limits, all members must sign up ahead of time for their sessions. We use gym management software called Zen Planner that enables members to register.
No-show Policy

We have a cancellation penalty for members who are reserve sessions but do not attend them. We respect everyone’s time and want to allow as many members as possible to get their training in.
