Safety Plan

 

 Occupancy Limits

We are limiting the total number of customers and trainers on the training floor to:

  • Maximum of 4 trainers with 4 customers on the training floor for a maximum of 8 people.
  • Maximum of 3 gym members working out by themselves on the training floor.
  • The combined total of people (trainers and customers) on the training floor at one time is 11.

Further notes: We have a square footage of roughly 2500 square feet which gives us roughly 230 square feet of space between each person which is a very large area to comfortable social distance far further than the required 6 feet.

 Office Occupancy

VF trainers and staff have use of our office for logging, scheduling and programming.  We have space for a maximum of 5 occupants at one time.  Each chair is spaced 6 feet apart from one another with adaquate walking space to adhere to social distancing rules.

Occupancy Management

To ensure organisation of space and occupancy we have adminestered these procedures to the gym:

  • All customers wishing to use the gym by themselves without a trainer must sign up through High Point’s Team Snap application.  This ensure no more than 3 members are signing up for each hour.
  • All booked hours must only enter at exactly their reserved spot, whether with a trainer or not.  
  • If a customer shows up early, they must wait in vehicle until their reserved time.
  • To avoid grouping or passing by, customers are asked to exit the building 5 minutes before the end of the hour.  This eliminates the passing of customers coming and going.
  • VF trainers are managing the personal training customers schedule to ensure that no more than 4 training sessions are occuring at one time.

Informing Customers

All current and new members are emailed new saftey and health procedures.  This information includes booking procedures and changes to how one administers themselves once at and in the gym.

There are also signs before you enter the gym and in the gym, regarding saftey procedures and protocols.

Customers are also informed that if they are experiencing signs and symptoms of a cold or flu, that they must not attempt the gym with no exceptions.  Vaughan’s Fitness has also eased our late cancelation policy to allow customers to be honest about possible symptoms.

If a customer or trainer has been incontact or is showing cold or flu symptoms, they must self isolate for 2 weeks with no symptoms before returning to the gym.

Informing Trainers

All trainers have been informed of the new procedures and are adhering to all procedures.

All trainers have had the opportunity to provide input at not only navigating the Fraser Health guidelines, but their own personal comfort and safety precautions.

Trainers have received verbal and written guidelines to adhere to for safe operations and procedures.

Space Management

Stairways: Signs have been posted to ensure only 1 person on the stair case at one time.

Gym Floor:

  • Booking procedures are in place to ensure we have a limit of total occupancy.
  • Signs and communication has been administered to ensure all customers and trainers know to keep 6 feet apart and to properly socially distance.
  • All equipment has been seperated to also help with social distancing.
  • All trainers have been trained to administer training procedures that allow them to maintain safe distance, not only between themselves and the customer they are training, but to everyone in the gym.
  • Trainers have been advised to use the gym in quadrants.  We only have 4 trainers on the floor with a huge open space of 2500 square feet.  Seperating the gym into 4 sections allows our trainers to have huge amounts of space to work within.
  • This huge amount of space allows safe walking pathways around anyone working out in the gym.

The Office.

  • Chairs have been seperated by 6 feet and tables have been moved to provide adequate distancing between trainers working in the back office.  We have a max of 5 work stations for employees in the back room.

We have 8 stations with hand sanitizer at our entry/exit point, at the top of the stairs, at the entrance to the office, and at various stations throughout the gym.  Also hand washing soap in all bathrooms.  There are also 6+ lined bins in the gym for ease of disposal.

SANITIZING Equipment

We have easy access stations withing seconds reach of all machines and equipment.  Customers and trainers are to clean each item they use or touch before and after each use.  Wipes and solutions are readily available at 6+ stations throughout the gym.  Customers and trainers are also to clean hands on entry and exit of gym.

As stated previously. Customers are advised to leave a few minutes early and customers showing up are to wait in vehicles until the exact time their hour starts to avoid grouping.

Trainers have been educated to keep 6 feet distance while they monior their customer during training sessions.  We are setting up stations before hand to avoid passing back and forth weights and equipment.

Vaughan’s fitness is AMAZING! The staff are so friendly, professional and motivating. The facility is clean and... beautiful, also located on beautiful grounds. Jarid is a wonderful owner, he replies promptly to emails and is super excited to get clients what they want and need. I would absolutely never go another personal training facility because at Vaughan’s, I truly feel like I’m family. Everyone knows your name, they’re invested in your fitness goals and take an active role in learning more about you. This facility and it’s members and staff are legit. They’re amazing and I would HIGHLY recommend Vaughan’s fitness to anyone looking to get in shape and achieve their fitness goals. I’ve trained with Allysia, Alyssa, Alex and Ally and they’re all amazing! It’s also a super non-threatening environment. I’ve found with going to other gyms before it can be super intimidating when you don’t know all the machines are what exercises to do, but here they explain everything, it’s non-judgemental, and everyone roots for you. 10/10 would recommend.read more

A welcoming, professionally developed and evidently knowledgeable environment was the initial impression I observed... from Vaughan’s Fitness. One year later, I can confidently state that anyone’s goals are achievable with the dedication and support offered at Vaughan’s Fitness. In fact, you’ll enjoy surpassing them. Previously I struggle with appropriate workouts, nutritional guidance, and minor injuries. Initially I debated the decision of inquiring into personal trainers but grateful I chose to. Over the last year, Jarid has been genuinely accommodating to my chaotic schedule. Allowing me the opportunity of working parallel with several trainers who are immensely supportive. They are as interested in your wellbeing and goals as they are fun, motivating and personable.read more

If you’re like me you have been humming and hawing about doing this for a long time. You are looking at websites,... getting all ready to go for it only to say to yourself “maybe later”. I have done the big gym thing before and it’s not my cup of tea, main reasons being that I can never decide what equipment I should use or exercises to do, what areas I need to focus on and most importantly how to perform every exercise properly as to not injure myself. I’m one that needs to just show up to the gym, be told what exercises I am doing and be guided through those exercises in a manner that I won’t injure myself, but also with the intent to achieve the greatest result. I have now been a member at Vaughan’s for over a year and can’t say enough about it. First off this testimonial is something I have wanted to do for a long time. I work out three times per week and have worked with the same two trainers the entire time, Alyssa and Jazmin. I have also on occasion had the fortune of working with some of the other trainers, while mine were on holidays. Marissa, Allyshia, Julianne and Tyler have all been fabulous and a pleasure to work with. This gym is nothing like the ‘big box chain style gyms’. There is no need to feel intimidated and there is every age and body type working out here. If however, you are looking for yoga or spin classes this is not the gym for you. You get to know everyone from the trainers along with many of the other members. It is without a doubt something I look forward to doing each and every time and that’s something I never thought I would hear myself say as I have always hated the gymJarid Vaughn has created an incredible environment here and joining his gym is one of the best things I have ever done. I turned 50 when I first joined and I while I eat fairly well, I was a bit heavier than I wanted to be, had aches and pains here and there and just generally wanted to feel healthier and feel better about myself. I have achieved all that and then some. I never have to weigh myself because I can see the changes. I can easily say that I am in the best physical shape of my life and while I may still have the odd ache and pain (I am over 50 after all), so many of the other issues I was having for years have all disappeared. My wife has now joined Vaugn’s one day per week and she too is really enjoying it. If you are hesitating on whether or not to join, I hope I have at least convinced you to contact Jarid and set up a consultation. Then you can stop doing your endless research on the internet and making excuses. Rob Koremanread more

If you have any sort of fitness goals, go to Vaughan’s Fitness. The first time I trained with Vaughan’s I needed to... get core strength to fix a back injury, and the second time was to tone up and develop over all body strength. I had very noticeable results after only a couple weeks of training and stayed training for 6+ months because I got so much out of it. My back pain has never returned and am now in great shape. The team at Vaughan’s are very knowledgeable and skilled.I learned so much about effective exercises with proper form. The sessions are tailored to your personal goals and are broken up between various types of exercises which makes each session new, interesting, and enjoyable. I cannot recommend Vaughan’s enough. They are awesome and I am so grateful for them.read more
