Keeping You Safe

Increased Cleaning Protocols

To ensure the healthy and safety of our members, we have increased our cleaning protocols as well as established a ‘Clean Team’ who will disinfect high traffic areas throughout the day. While we have always used hospital grade cleaning solutions, we have implemented additional technology for further protection. To learn more about the products we are using, view our FAQ.

Physical Distance Guidelines

We are closely following instructions and recommendations issued by public health authorities and government agencies such as the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) surrounding physical distancing. All locations have floor adhesives that are 6 feet apart which indicate where to stand or workout.

To learn more about the protocols we have in place, view our FAQ.

Be on the Lookout

We’ve placed extra signage around our clubs with new guidelines to help our members remain safe. Please be aware of the changes before you arrive and keep them in mind for the duration of your workout.

We’ve prepared a brief video to help you know what to expect when you return to the club. Click above to watch the video tour.

COVID-19 Health FAQ

The health and safety of our members and team members are of our utmost concern and priorityWe are adhering to all physical distancing requirements as mandated by the Maryland state government. In addition, all team members are required to wear masks during their shifts. We are using hospital grade cleaning products to clean and disinfect the club throughout the day. In addition, we have increased the number of disinfectant stations and touch free hand sanitizing stations throughout the club. Our clubs will be closed for 15-minute intermissions throughout the day to disinfect hightraffic areas and maintain facility capacity restrictions.  

How do I reserve my workout?

This link will take you to a schedule of all available workout sessions. Once you find a session that’s convenient for you, you’ll select the “Reserve” button on the desired session. You will then be prompted to either log into your MindBody Account or create a new accountconfirm your reservation date and time and you’re all set!

Why do I need to reserve my club time online?

At this time, Brick Bodies is required to limit the capacity of our facilities to ensure the safety of our members and compliance with local/state mandates for re-opening. Allowing members to make reservations ensures that when you arrive, you’re able to workout. Reservations are for 90 minute blocks so you are able to get in a full workout. They can be made up to 7 days in advance. 

Why are you closing for 15 minutes during the reservation blocks?

We are closing for 15 minutes after each reservation block has been completed for the following reasons. First, to ensure all members in the club have left so we can adhere to government mandated capacity restrictions for the following reservation block. Second, to give associates uninterrupted time to disinfect the facility and club equipment prior to the start of the next reservation block. As you understand, cleaning and disinfecting are vital components of our club being safe for use. 

Why is there a penalty fee if I do not show up for my reservation?

Due to limited capacity in both classes and general club usage, we ask that you cancel with as much notice as possible to allow access to fellow members.  Reservations that are not canceled within 8 hours or used will be subject to a $15 penalty fee. Please alert the club if something arises at the last moment. This will allow us to offer the class to a member on the waitlist.  

Why are there no towels, yoga mats, blocks, bolsters, mints or coffee?

During our initial phase of reopening we have removed all soft-surface equipment in addition to amenities that can potentially spread the COVID-19. We are re-evaluating these for our next phase of reopening. We encourage you to bring in your own yoga mat and towel during this time. 

Will the Team Training classes be available in the clubs when we reopen?

During the first phase of reopening we will continue to offer our Team Training classes through Zoom in order to allow the great participation we’ve seen through the closure to continue.  As capacity restrictions are eased and/or lifted, we will resume holding these classes in the clubs. 

Can I use the studios when class is not in session?

Yes however, members are expected to disinfect all touch points after using this space.

Why can I only use certain cardio equipment?

The state of Maryland has mandated a six-feet physical distancing requirement to ensure our health and safety. We have measured the width of our treadmills, recumbent bikes, arc machines, stair masters and ellipticals and certain cardio equipment has been closed to follow this policy. 

Can I bring a guest?

Due to limited capacity, we have restricted our guest policy to one day guest passes for local year-round residents 24 years or older.  Only children of current members that are home from college are eligible to for short term summer memberships.  All guests must have an appointment set with a Membership Counselor prior to coming into any location. 

Why is the Aquatics Center closed?

Due to the inability to safely wear personal protective equipment while swimming, we do not want to risk increasing the exposure potential for our members or team members. Wplan to reopen the pools once it is safe to do so.  

Why is Little Bricks closed?

It is our intention to keep everyone healthy and safe when visiting our clubs, which means adhering to strict physical distancing and immediate disinfecting of all items touched. Unfortunately, these precautions would prevent us from being able to safely offer the environment of learning, socialization, creativity and engagement that we pride ourselves on. We plan to reopen Little Bricks once it is safe to do so. 

Can I still purchase Defiance Fuel water in the club?

Yes! However, keeping the safety of our team members in mind, we will not be accepting cash payments.
