As of this week, Floyd County residents are once again allowed to push their bodies to chiseled perfection. Both area gyms, the YMCA and Snap Fitness, are open – but with restrictions.
Snap Fitness posted on their Facebook page says:
“Access will open up for current Members ONLY starting Monday May 4th.
Our hours are as followed for our first week:
Monday- Friday 5 am to 8 pm
Saturday 7 am to 2 pm
Sunday 6 am to NOON
We will NOT be accepting in-club sign ups at this time. Guest Day passes and Trial passes are null and void.
If you’re looking to join our Snap Family, please sign up online at
As we re-open, we will continue to reassess and make changes along the way. We hope to have our key card access open in the very near future.
See you SOON”
And HealthQuest Fitness Center posted a similar update:
“HealthQuest Fitness Center will reopen May 1st and will continue to provide 24/7 access. Only current members are allowed in the facility at this time, please do not bring in guests. We need to make sure a clean and safe environment is available and our first priority is to members.
There will be plenty of antibacterial spray, disposable towels, and hand sanitizer available. Please make sure to wipe down equipment, including any handles you’ve touched after you’ve finished with each piece. It’s important to continue to use social distancing while in the fitness center, so please stay 6 feet from other members at all times.
If you just got back from vacation, have traveled out of state, have been around someone who has COVID-19, or you have symptoms of illness please refrain from using the fitness center until you’ve been quarantined for 14 days and feeling better.”
Over at the YMCA, Andrea Riedemann says school aged kids will have some rules to abide to.
Riedemann says the YMCA has focused staff attention on creating a clean and sanitary atmosphere for their patrons. In the meantime, the YMCA asks everyone to bring their own equipment to the gym.
As for masks, the YMCA says: ‘It is a recommendation, but not a requirement.’
