DFC Members enjoying the gains and benefits of their gym workouts again!

Great to see our members back working out and noting their appreciation of the quality of their gym workout versus what they were achieving with their home workouts.   The older members who are regular and coming up to 4-5 days/week are truly inspiring in their effort and focus to use exercise to maintain their optimal health.  The enhanced safety measures and improved gym layout are working well.   The small membership means that for the majority of the day only a few members are in the gym at any given time  and  at times some feel that they have the gym to themself.

The experience gained since opening has allowed the Centre to move to Phase 2(as of Aug 12/20) so that new and returning/expired members can now join and enjoy those same benefits.

Phase 3 won’t happen until much later this year or into 2021. That is when drop-ins will again be allowed.   Our regular longer term members appreciate that this access restriction is for their comfort and safety.

Enhanced protocols are in place to ensure a safe environment for staff and members.  There will be a higher focus and level on a number of measures and related gym behaviour that has always been part of the DFC over the years;  including  respectful physical distancing, members wiping equipment and staffs’ attention to cleaning.   Incremental current health measures require the closure of  the sauna, fountain.  Some lockers are accessible with related safety protocols.  Shower access is being considered with appropriate member based protocols being applied.   The DFC emphasizes the benefit of current members and others to consistently apply Public Health guidelines as Ontario continues to reopen our economy and adjust restrictions on social gatherings and interactions.
