To ensure safe social distancing, please only enter or exit when there is not another person in the shoe storage vestibule.
Upon entering the facility, please wash your hands or use the hand sanitizer we have provided on the front desk.
It is a requirement that we screen each member for sickness upon entering the facility. You will either be asked by a Trench Fitness representative if you are sick or symptomatic or we will have an option to scan with your phone and complete a quick questionnaire upon entering to confirm you are not sick. If you answer yes, you will not be allowed to enter the facility.
Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms should stay home or go straight home if they become sick while in the facility. If a patron is severely sick (e.g. difficulty breathing, chest pain, etc.), 911 will be called.
Access and Hours

We have done an analysis of our facility and have determined that we can safely accommodate 40 people while maintaining 2m of social distancing. With a staff member present we will closely monitor that we are not surpassing this capacity. Due to our lower volume of membership we feel this will not be an issue.
We encourage all members and clients to purchase memberships or services online at home or on your own personal mobile device at this time. Debit transactions will only be done if absolutely necessary with equipment being sanitized before and after use.
Do your best to come to the gym already in your workout attire. Change Rooms and Showers are available.
You are encouraged to bring only what you absolutely need to bring with you inside the gym. If you must bring in a gym bag, keep it with you while working out.

I have been utilizing Trench for a couple years now doing both nutritional programs and personal training sessions with Neil. Neil has been great to train with and has taught me so much. He is always pushing me to get outside of my comfort zones and try a bit more. I definitely would not be where I am in my strength training without his help and support.
