Our Covid Safety Measures
As you may have heard, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced new guidance for fully vaccinated people – they no longer need to wear masks or physically distance in any setting.
What does that mean at LexAveGym?
Effective immediately, you can voluntarily disclose your vaccination status and, if you choose to share that you are fully vaccinated, can remove your mask and are not required to physically distance at the gym. NY state requires we record proof of vaccination. This requirement can be found here.
You can show proof of vaccination by either bringing your vaccination card with you to class or by showing the Excelsior Pass opened up on your phone. You’ll only have to show it once and it will be updated on your account.
Out of extra caution, we will still be maintaining separate dedicated training areas for personal training.
Since our trainers are fully vaccinated, they will not be wearing their mask unless you request it.
Remember: Fully vaccinated means you are at least two weeks past your second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or your single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
If you choose not to disclose your vaccination status, or if you are not fully vaccinated, in accordance with State Law, you will be required to continue wearing your mask at the Gym.
As always, your safety remains our top priority. We will continue to monitor local pandemic conditions and update our health and safety policies as needed.
The new facility is operating extremely well and feedback has been fantastic!

Hope to see you all soon!!!!
The specifics relating to Personal training from within this document are as follows:
- Patrons and trainers wear face coverings at all times;
- Patrons and trainers maintain six-foot of space to the maximum extent possible, considering occasional, brief contact that may be closer than six feet to address a health or safety risk (e.g., demonstrate exercise, correct form or posture). In any case, this close contact must be conducted within the least amount of time possible (i.e., no lingering or socializing);
- Patrons and trainers must prohibit the sharing of personal items between one another(e.g., towels); and
- Patrons and trainers must clean and disinfect any shared equipment in between use(e.g., demonstrations).
Enhancements to the State Requirements we are deploying are as follows:
- Trainers and clients will have contactless temperature taken on way in.
- Rather than the normal free flow of space usage of the facility, we have created six designated personal training safety areas (PTSA). We have the ability to add 2 more PTSAs when busy by utilizing the turf. This means we will never have more than 6 simultaneous people training (each in their own designated areas) inside a huge 4,000 square foot facility. We could quadruple this and stay within state guidelines, but we won’t.
- PTSAs are large – at least 400+ square feet each – WELL beyond state space requirements
- Client appointments will be designated for a specific PTSA at the time of appointment.
- Each PTSA will have more than enough space to assure a very challenging workout while maintaining a safe social distance between trainers/clients as well as between clients.
- We will be distributing equipment throughout the PTSAs to be used ONLY within the PTSA the equipment is located. There will be no sharing of equipment across PTSAs.
- Trainers will disinfect everything in the PTSA between sessions.
- There will be disinfectant available in each PTSA.
- Bathrooms will be available with special cleaning precautions to take place. However showers will not be available.
- There will be no sharing of boxing gloves or wraps.
- We will continue our regular professional cleaning/disinfecting service.
- Clients should bring their own personal water bottles, yoga matts, gloves, wraps and towels as needed.
