Outdoor Classes

June 24, 2020

Dear Total Facility Members,
Beginning Monday, June 29, The Connection is pleased to offer three outdoor exercise classes weekly for Total Facility members in addition to the live Zoom classes and taped class video library. Classes will be offered in the parking lot and on the Morris Avenue lawn area.

The following safety procedures will be implemented:

  • WAIVERS
    Members will be required to electronically sign a waiver prior to participating in outdoor classes. If membership is on hold, it will be reactivated. Total Facility Members received an email on 6/24/20 with their unique barcode to sign the waiver electronically. If you did not receive your barcode, please email angela.johnson@theconnectiononline.org. Once you have your barcode, click here to fill out the waiver electronically.

  • HEALTH SCREENING
    Prior to class, all members must respond negatively to a series of COVID-19 health screening questions printed on a large poster board. Each member’s temperature will be checked with a touchless forehead thermometer. Anyone who answers yes to a health screening question, exhibits COVID-19 symptoms, or displays a temperature of 100.4 or higher will not be permitted to participate. Staff will also be required to submit to a health screening and temperature check. They will be trained to recognize COVID-19 symptoms.
  • FACE COVERINGS & SANITIZER
    Members and staff must wear face coverings before and after class. It is optional to wear them during class. Hand sanitizer will be available.
  • CLASS
    Members must bring their own exercise equipment. A yoga mat, kitchen-sized towel, and dumbbells (or soup cans) are recommended. Members should also bring water. After the health screening and temperature check, members are asked to line up socially distanced 6’ apart and wait to be called into the class area. The instructor will call participants into the class area one by one to drop their belongings alongside the building and then go to the marked spots lining up from the front of the class to the back. Members will depart class one by one from back to front. Members will exercise socially distancing 6’ away from one another. Members may be asked to register in advance for class and the instructor will maintain a class roster should contact tracing be necessary.
  • RESTROOMS
    The use of a restroom is discouraged but will be available in the case of an emergency.
  • CLASS SCHEDULE & INSTRUCTOR
    All classes are 7:00-8:00am *this session of outdoor classes ends 7/31* 
    Monday – FIT (Functional Interval Training) with Sangeeta
    Wednesday – Total Body Workout with Mila
    Friday – Cardio & Cuts with Valerie R.
    All classes are adaptable to all levels.
  • WEATHER
    In case of inclement or questionable weather, a notice will be posted on The Connection website 30 minutes prior to class.

We realize the process is cumbersome but it is important to do everything possible to protect each other and we believe it will quickly become a relatively easy routine to follow.

As always, we are grateful for your membership and hope you will join us for fresh air and in-person exercise!
