GYM REOPENING

We are reopening Markham Martial Arts on July 13, 2020 after a temporary closure due to COVID-19.

 

The well-being of our members and community are of the utmost importance and we have employed new measures to ensure your safety. We are introducing a number of new cleaning practices in order to protect the health of all those visiting our facility.

To allow clubs to reopen, MTO (Muay Thai Ontario) has implemented the registration of recreational memberships for ALL members in order to adhere to regulation stipulations. Students WILL NOT be allowed to attend classes at Markham Martial Arts without registering with MTO.

SAFETY & CLEANING PRACTICES

The following protocols are now in place to ensure the health & safety of all our patrons:

 

  • Prior to reopening, the gym will undergo an extensive deep clean of the entire facility

  • We have invested in a medical grade ULV disinfection system

  • Cleaning all surfaces, floors and equipment with disinfectant

  • Touch free hand sanitizer units

  • Cleaning time allotted in between each class to disinfect and sanitize in order to prepare for the next group

  • Procured a non-contact digital infrared forehead thermometer to check each member upon entry

ONLINE BOOKING

All visits to the gym must be pre-booked online, walk-ins are currently not permitted. The advantages to online bookings are:

  • Click here to book a class: https://www.markhammartialarts.ca/book-online

  • Guaranteed and reserved spot for members

  • Ensures we are enforcing and following capacity restrictions that limits the amount of people in each class

  • Aids in facilitating physical distancing measures and reducing potential spread 

These measures will remain in place until further directive is given by the government and MTO (Muay Thai Ontario).

YOUR VISIT

In order to secure the health & safety of our patrons, we require the strict adherence of the following processes:

  • Prior to the class start time, members are required to line-up outside the front entrance maintaining six feet distance between each person

  • Before entry, each person will be asked a series of pre-screening questions and temperature taken to ensure no fever is present

  • The use of change room and lockers are PROHIBITED 

  • Each member will be assigned a box for their belongings which they will take with them to a designated workout station. (eg. box #1 assigned to station #1) 

  • In order to prevent cross contamination, training gear (eg. boxing gloves, wraps, shin pads) are not to be loaned or shared. Students must use their own personal gear, if you arrive with none we have them available for purchase.

  • After class is completed, students will be required to wipe down their equipment. Disinfectant and wipes to be provided.

  • Members will promptly, exit through the back entrance

  • Staff will complete a full cleaning in preparation for the following class

**PLEASE NOTE DUE TO STRICT CAPACITY RESTRICTIONS, ALL GUESTS AND NON-BOOKED MEMBERS ARE NOT PERMITTED IN THE FACILITY. PARENTS AND GUARDIANS ARE NO LONGER ALLOWED TO REMAIN INSIDE THE GYM WHILE THE KIDS CLASS IS IN SESSION. WE SINCERELY APOLOGIZE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE .**
