Trainers at Gold’s Gym in Lawrenceville will be educating people not only on exercises when they return to work next week but also on how to properly sanitize equipment in the facility.
Adam Ponzio is having a staff meeting Friday ahead of the gym’s reopening Monday. On every other piece of cardio equipment will be a sign reminding people of social distancing guidelines.
Ponzio will suspend services that he does not believe can be offered while maintaining social distance, including group fitness classes, tanning and child care. The basketball court and the sauna will also be closed for normal use for the time being. The group fitness room and the basketball court are being repurposed for people to work out while staying 6 feet apart. Staff members will distribute microfiber towels to gymgoers, and sanitizing efforts will increase.
Trainers will also be equipped with sanitizing spray.
