We have been put in a challenging situation with regard to the government mandate to require vaccine passports for admission to some businesses—including gyms. Starting September 22, 2021, The Province of Ontario has mandated numerous businesses, including gyms, require proof of full vaccination (two doses plus 14 days) from all patrons without a legitimate medical exemption. We value each of our members, and recognize & respect that people have differing views on this issue.
To ensure we can stay open as a business to serve our community, we must comply with this temporary measure required by the government. This is a very challenging time as we are bring forced to make decisions that will affect our ability to serve all our clients. But our commitment to our members is unwavering: We will find a way to help you train to the best of our ability.
We strongly encourage you to reach out to a trusted medical professional regarding your vaccine hesitancy. If you do not have someone you can speak with, I will do my best to put you in contact with a medical professional from our community to talk you through your concerns.
Here are the full details from the Ontario Government we are following. Have a look here if you need guidance on where to locate your vaccine proof, medical exemptions, etc. Rest assured that we remain committed to your health and well-being. We will continue to ensure our gym is safe and clean by using the same industry-leading protocols we have used throughout the pandemic.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support. Don’t hesitate to contact us personally if you have questions!
