Staying Active While Socially Distancing

Posted In: Fitness & Wellness

The people of Totowa, NJ, have valiantly followed the rules and regulations to help prevent the spread of the virus and staying active is part of that fight, but staying active, while also social distancing. We are proud of how the people of our area have handled this time of crisis and vowed to do our part to ensure success. Staying healthy and fit is a key component in that struggle. That’s why we’ve offered a number of ways to help clients do that. It’s also why we’ve taken special measures to make sure that the gym is clean, at reduced capacity and people are safely spaced apart.

Private sessions are a safe way to go and easy to control.

It makes sense that if you want to follow social distancing dictates, private training sessions would be the best way to do it. While it gives you the benefit of a smaller potential of exposure to others, it also provides more benefits. Working one-on-one with a trainer is the ultimate training experience and one of the best ways to social distance. The trainer creates a program designed specifically for your needs and can identify more clearly areas where you need extra help, while also checking your form.

Working out in a group, but keeping a safe distance.

Group workouts may seem difficult to social distance, but it’s far easier than it is in a retail store. I’m proud to say that, while it seems hard to workout in a group and keep people at the same time, we tackled the problem and found the solution. Smaller and fewer groups at one time, so people can stay safe distances from one another. It’s actually easier to maintain that social distance in the gym than it is in the grocery or other retail store. It’s a smaller group of people and ones who are more aware of taking care of their health.

We have a cleaning strategy in place and instructions on maintaining social distancing.

Ensuring that Prime Fitness is a clean and well-maintained gym has always been part of our mission, but more focus has been placed on immediately cleaning equipment and the area, since Covid-19. We focus on small groups and individual workouts, until it’s safe. Part of avoiding the ravages of the virus is staying healthy and we can help you reach that with a healthy diet and regular exercise.

  • Obesity is now the leading cause of preventable deaths and Covid-19 has made us all more aware of the dangers. All studies show that obesity and the diseases it causes, diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease, increase the risk of mortality from this virus.
  • To maintain social distancing, we limit the number of people in our classes. Please call ahead to ensure there’s a spot for you.
  • Create your own group session by coming with immediate family members, caretakers, household members or your significant other. It limits the exposure from people outside your family.
  • High touch areas are sanitized frequently for your safety.
