COVID-19 Reopening Plan

Maintaining a clean and safe gym has always been a top priority at Burke’s and it is our responsibility to do our share to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We are excited to reopen our facility on June 10th and have implemented many health and safety measures in accordance with CDC and state guidance. We have also redesigned the facility to safely accommodate guests by running Gym 1 and Gym 2 separately. This means each gym will have its own entrance, exit and restrooms. Gym space can be booked using our reservation system with time slots staggered to ensure adequate cleaning and sanitizing of equipment and contact areas. Guests will be required to wait in the parking lot and will be called at the time of their reservation to enter the facility. This will eliminate any overlap between guests and create a clean environment for kids to have fun.
