To mitigate the spread of any germs in our facility, we have an extensive daily deep cleaning schedule that goes beyond industry standards. Find out what are current members are saying about their personal experiences since returning to Orland Park Health & Fitness Center (OPHFC).
Michael started his fitness journey with our Next Steps Fitness Program™ in November of 2018 and transitioned to membership after graduating from the program 8 weeks later. Since then, Michael visits the Center on a daily basis and said he feels very comfortable exercising in our Center since we have reopened.
“Everyone is following the rules and regulations. There are signs, sanitizer and wipes everywhere. Plus, the staff is cleaning 24/7. I have always loved and enjoyed the Center because it has the best staff and training around! The Center has always been superbly clean even before COVID,” said Michael. Today Michael continues his fitness journey at OPHFC and is making great progress!
Longtime member, Carolyn D., has been coming to our Center for over 22 years and enjoys all of our Group Exercise classes such as SPIN® and boot camp.
“There are two things that keep me coming back to the Center; first is the people (members and staff) and second is the cleanliness of the Center,” said Carolyn.
Currently, Carolyn comes 4 times a week and loves to take classes and swim. Being able to socialize and exercise is very important to her. When asked about how comfortable she is attending the Center Carolyn said, “Right now I feel anything you do is a risk (due to COVID), but exercising is a risk I’m willing to take because the staff is keeping the Center clean and the members are being conscience when it comes to the policies.”
Judy T. has been a member of our Center since July of 2004 and enjoys taking classes 3-4 days a week. She stated the best part about returning to the Center was, “In the first yoga class back, as I looked around at the socially distanced participants, I felt safe— like I was home again. I realized I not only missed the exercise, but I also missed the people and instructors.”
Judy commented on how our Center has made the availability of the wipes and towels so easy and all the signs to remind people to social distance and wipe down the equipment help keep everyone safe. Our Center staff is happy to have her and all the class participants back!
