Electrostatic Fogger

Electrostatic Foggers provide 360-degree coverage, deep cleaning turf and around curved and hard to reach surfaces. Electrostatic charged droplets are magnetically drawn to any surface within 6 feet because the attraction coefficient is 15 times greater than gravity!

NanoSeptic Continuously Self-Cleaning Surfaces

We’ve installed NanoSeptic Continuously Self-Cleaning Surfaces to all door handles. NanoSeptic skins turn dirty high traffic, public touchpoints into continuously self-cleaning surfaces. Powered by light, NanoSeptic surfaces utilize mineral nano-crystals which create a powerful oxidation reaction. Working 24/7, the surface continually oxidizes organic contaminants.

COVID-19 Health FAQ

What are you doing to ensure my safety?

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. 

Every day we will close the club from 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm so our team can focus on cleaning and disinfecting high touch surfaces. Although we are cleaning throughout the day (and night), we feel a greater measure of safety can be provided with this mid-day reset.

What is the Brick Bodies Mask Policy?

The Brick Bodies Mask Policy has been updated and adapted directly from the “State of Maryland Best Practices for Fitness Centers” document and the “Baltimore County 7-23-20 Interpretive Guidance” document: 

  • Members should always wear face coverings in the club when not actively engaged in exercise. This includes when you enter or exit the club, when you interact with others, and when you are walking about the club.
  • When exercising, members are encouraged to wear face coverings if able to do so safely. A face covering should be worn when engaging in non-vigorous exercise.
  • If wearing a face covering safely is not possible due to vigorous exercise, members should increase the distance between themselves and other members as much as possible.
  • For simplicity, vigorous exercise includes all group fitness classes and all cardio equipment. It also includes high intensity interval training, and such strenuous activities as heavy Olympic lifting or pushing a weighted sled back and forth on the turf.
  • If you remove your mask to exercise, you must put it back on between sets. You must also wear it to walk anywhere in the club, including to get equipment, fill your water bottle, talk to a friend, or use the locker room.
  • This policy must be followed for the safety of everyone. If a member of the Brick Bodies team, or even another member, asks you to adhere to the policy, it is not acceptable to react in an angry or disrespectful manner. If you feel you are being asked to do something outside of this policy, please remain respectful and address your concern with management.

How do I reserve my group exercise class time?

No More Club Usage Reservations!

Although we must continue to require reservations for group exercise classes, we are happy to announce you will no longer need to make a reservation for regular gym usage. We have analyzed usage since re-opening, and we have plenty of space available to accommodate members without the risk of exceeding our government mandated maximum occupancy. We are switching to a tracking system that allows us to monitor how many people are in the building at any given time, so we will be able to keep you safe while making your club visits more convenient.

This link will take you to a schedule of group exercise classes you can reserve. Once you find a class that’s convenient for you, you’ll  select the “Reserve” button on the desired class. 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!

What happened to the cleaning intermission?

Beginning October 1st, we will no longer close the club daily from 1:30-2:30pm for our daily cleaning intermission.

We have set aside special hours for our vulnerable or at-risk members from 2:30-3:30pm. All members welcome, however masks must be worn at all times during the high risk hour, even during exercise.

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. 

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. 

What Hours are the Aquatic Centers Open?

The Brick Bodies Padonia and Reisterstown lap and therapy pools have reopened. The pools are available for lap swimming, classes and therapy. Due to physical distancing limitations, we will not be offering swim lessons until we feel that it is safe to do so.

Similar to working out in the club, you are required to wear a mask when entering, exiting or walking around the pool deck. Masks may be removed once you are ready to enter the pool and should be worn as soon as you complete your swim or aquatics class.

The Spa and Steam Room, and Sauna will remain temporarily unavailable. As government regulations change, we will bring these amenities back to you as soon as it is safe to do so.

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. 

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 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.
