 We are very excited to announce that we are reopening classes in person!!!

Starting Thursday, May 7th

We know that not everyone will feel comfortable and ready to come back. Therefore, Zoom classes will continue to be offered during regular class time. If you are not a member of the “band” app, you will need to download this app. This is where all Zoom meetings will be posted. You will be attending via Zoom with the class that is taking place in person. Non-equipment, scaled options will be provided.

Please note that this may not look and feel the same as classes have in the past. We want to take all the precautions that we can to keep you safe while you train as RMSDF. In order for this process to be successful, we need your compliance. We are attaching the guidelines that we need everyone to follow. We have met with our coaches and trained them extensively on the processes that need to be followed. We ask that you take their direction and comply with the attached guidelines. If you are unable to comply, we will address this with you individually.

While we LOVE being a family-friendly gym that welcomes everyone, at this time we have to ask that all spectators, parents, and kids refrain from coming in the gym. We can only have those participating in classes in the building and only during their scheduled class time. Anyone is welcome to spectate from the parking lot, through the windows. We ask that you be respectful to others and obey social distancing even in the parking lot areas.

Again, all of the details are covered in the attached document. We ask that you review this document so that you are prepared and know what is expected. Generally speaking, Crossfit members will need to enter and exit through the rear door and remain in the rear of the building for the entire time they are on site. Krav Maga members will enter and exit through the front door and only remain in that section of the building. There is a full list of proper cleaning procedures in the attached document.
