LVHN Fitness Reopening

It’s been several months since LVHN Fitness closed due to the pandemic. Starting Aug. 12, LVHN Fitness will reopen its locations at 1243 Cedar Crest Blvd., Allentown, LVHN–One City Center, Allentown, and 1770 Bathgate Road, Bethlehem, in a limited capacity with new safety measures in place. New hours will be Monday–Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Masks will be required by everyone, even when exercising.

At this time due to safety restrictions, the LVHN Fitness location at LVHN–Mack Boulevard remains closed. The Fitness Center at the Health & Wellness Center at Hazleton also remains closed.

Temporary adjustment to workout hours

Workout hours have been adjusted to have periods of closing during the day so that staff can thoroughly clean the facilities. These hours are temporary and in response to the pandemic. LVHN Fitness will be following all CDC guidelines as they pertain to cleaning. There will also be a thorough cleaning each night. The daily schedule is as follows. Reminder that you can only sign up for a one-hour time slot:

  • 7-11 a.m., open
  • 11-11:30 a.m., closed for cleaning
  • 11:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m., open
  • 3:30-4 p.m., closed for cleaning
  • 4-7 p.m., open

How we’re keeping things safe

You will notice some changes at LVHN Fitness. With the help of infection control and occupational health colleagues at LVHN, new safety measure were implemented that will protect you and the LVHN Fitness staff. Prior to entering the building, colleagues and members must answer a questionnaire and have their temperature taken. Plexiglass was also installed at all reception areas and a no contact check-in process is in place.

Equipment and class info

To ensure proper social distancing, use of equipment will be limited. High-impact group classes like Bootcamp and HIIT will not be offered to avoid the additional stress that mask wearing may cause some members. However, low-impact classes will be offered.

Bring only what you need

Because locker rooms will be closed, members should only bring what is absolutely necessary while at LVHN Fitness. Small bins will be in place at each reception desk for any personal items you may wish to store.

Pause on massage

To limit contact, massage services will not be offered at this time. However, we hope to resume these services in the near future.

Safety practices for all

All members must sign a new Standards of Conduct document acknowledging the new policies and procedures related to mask wearing, scheduling and occupancy, commitment to screening before admission, commitment to wiping down equipment after use, and new personal hygiene standards. You will be provided regular updates on rule changes and enhancements to services as they become available. The document will be available on LVHNfitness.com, but must be printed, signed and submitted at the time of your initial visit.

The LVHN Fitness team understands that there are a lot of new changes. However, they are the same great team and look forward to seeing colleagues and other members again.
