Safety Measures at the Club
As we navigate through the reopening of our locations, there will be some new things to expect during each phase. Amenities and classes may vary by club but will be consistent with governmental orders and guidelines. We appreciate your help and understanding as we work through this time together.
When You Arrive
Upon entering LVAC you will be greeted with the LVAC CARE Policy and asked to perform a self-symptom assessment, which may include the following questions:
Do you have any of the following symptoms?
- Shortness of breath
Has anyone in your family / household, or anyone you have come in contact with in the last 14 days, experienced the symptoms above or tested positive for COVID-19?
If you answer yes to any of the above questions, we appreciate if you refrain from using the facility. If you answer no, you may proceed to our new touchless check-in.
At this time, we ask that you please bring your own water bottle, as fountains will be closed in accordance with Southern Nevada Health District guidelines. Touchless water bottle fillers will be available to refill water bottles, but mouthpiece will be unavailable. Water bottles will also be available for purchase at the Juice Bar.
LVAC Coaches will not be taking appointments for the first 2-3 weeks after reopening, as they work to reinforce social distancing guidelines and proper use of equipment around the clubs.
You may notice that we are not limiting the availability to lockers as we understand this is an important amenity to our members.

Your Role in Staying Healthy
The health and safety of our members and team members is what’s most important. As we reopen, you will play an important role in making your club a safe experience for us all.
By following the advice on this page, you can help support a safe, phased reopening of our clubs. Together we can do our part to help limit the spread of COVID-19, especially to those who are more vulnerable due to age, compromised immunity or pre-existing conditions.
What You Can Do:
Maintain 6 feet of distance from others.
Wash or sanitize your hands upon entering and leaving the club.
You must be responsible for your health and safety. This is why we recommend that you clean the equipment with disinfecting spray before and after each use. It’s best to assume the person who used it previously did not clean it. Protect yourself, clean your equipment. Here’s how:
- Spray paper towel with disinfectant.
- Wipe down equipment.
- Allow it to air dry for 60 seconds.
While we hope that our members continue to follow the Golden Rule, treat others as you would like others to treat you, ultimately, we ask you to please be responsible for our own health and safety.
Members are recommended to wear a mask/face covering while exercising in the club to significantly reduce the potential for any airborne transmission.
Bring your own water bottle, as fountains will be closed in accordance with Southern Nevada Health District guidelines. Touchless water bottle fillers will be available to refill water bottles, but mouthpiece will be unavailable.
If you are vulnerable or at-risk for COVID-19 as identified by the CDC—including those who are over the age of 65 or those who have chronic medical conditions—please take extra precaution and follow CDC guidelines.
