We also encourage you to do a self-assessment before coming to the club. No one should attend the facility if they show any symptoms of being sick. If you are unsure please use the self-assessment tool provided free online through https://bc.thrive.health/covid19/en or through the COVID-19 BC Support App self-assessment tool.
Although our re-opening has some limitations, we are all excited to be able to get back, and look forward to seeing you back (at a safe 2-metre distance of course).

Update March 19th

Closure of Global Fitness and Racquet Club

Due to the British Columbia government declaring a state of emergency to support the provincial wide response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, I have no choice but to shut down the operations of Global Fitness for the unforeseeable future for the safety and health of our members and employees.

We all know that exercise is important for our individual physical and mental health, therefore, we are exploring alternative delivery methods of our programs. We hope to have more information to you in the near future.

The payment of member dues is being suspended effective April 1, 2020. Members will receive a full credit on their account when we reopen for business for the 15 days on which the facility was closed in March.

I wish you all the best during this time and hope that our closure is short-term in nature. Let’s stay connected, but not touching. We can do this.

In Health,

Darcia Fenton
General Manager
