Masks and Gloves
Consistent with CDC & local guidelines, we highly recommend members wear a mask when entering the facility, moving around the gym, and when social distancing may be difficult. Additionally, members should consider wearing a mask during their workout. In our Midway and Bridgeport locations, members are required to wear masks during indoor physical activity. All Blink employees will be wearing masks and gloves at all times.
We will be taking the temperatures of our members and our employees as they enter the gym. Consistent with CDC guidelines, any member or employee with a temperature of 100.4°F or higher will not be given access to the gym. In our Midway and Bridgeport locations, any member or employee with a temperature of 100.0°F or higher will not be given access to the gym.
Gym Amenities and Programming
While we are operating at limited capacity, guest privileges are allowed. Showers and lockers will have limited availability consistent with local guidelines for social distancing.
We’ve reorganized gym layouts to further support local guidelines for social distancing. In keeping with local guidelines, some equipment will be unavailable for use.
Consistent with local guidelines, members are required to disinfect equipment before and after use.
While gyms will initially reopen at 50% capacity or less based on local guidelines and feedback from members regarding reopening plans, Blink does not expect this reduced capacity will impact access to the gym or require members to wait for access. The potential for waiting for access increases during the gym's peak hours. Please call your gym for specific capacity restrictions.
PT clients with a scheduled appointment will have priority entry into the gym and should immediately proceed to the greeter at the gym entrance or the Mood Lifters at the front desk to gain immediate access
When your gym reopens all memberships will be unfrozen. We realize that not everybody will be ready to come back to the gym, so we are offering members the option to refreeze their membership for an additional 30 days at no cost. For information on requesting a temporary membership freeze, please see 'Can I put a temporary freeze on my membership agreement?'
If you paid monthly membership dues for March 17 - March 31 we will be adding a credit equal to 15 days to your account. This credit will be applied to your next month’s dues. If you have a paid-in-full membership, we will be extending your agreement for the number of days the gym was closed.
Billing will resume when the gym reopens (unless you choose to refreeze your membership). We will prorate membership dues for the remaining days in May and include this with your next month’s dues. For the first billing after the club reopens, Blink is making a one-time change to the billing date and will bill on July 11th. Starting in August billing will resume on the first of the month.
