State Mandates Temporary Club Closing

In an effort to prevent the transmission of Coronavirus (COVID-19), and in compliance with the state government mandate that includes NJ, NY and CT, all Jersey Strong locations will temporarily close today March 16, 2020 at 8pm until further notice.

All member billing has paused with this closure, and will commence upon re-opening. Any billing that was already in process for the 3 days following the temporary closing will be reversed. Please allow 7-10 days for this reversal to take place.

Since the onset of the COVID-19 virus outbreak, we have strived to keep open communication with our members and staff, and to be vigilant in our efforts to provide the safest environment possible.

Jersey Strong is committed to the health and safety of our members and our employees, and we appreciate your support, cooperation and understanding throughout all of this.

We will continue to monitor the situation and communicate with you accordingly. Thank you for being a member of the Jersey Strong family.

We appreciate your business and look forward to providing you with a safe, clean and healthy workout environment as soon as practical. Wishing good health to you and your family in the days and weeks to come.

A Letter From the Owner

If you are visiting us for a class, workout on the exercise floor or a personal training session, I want you to know that Jersey Strong is one of the cleanest indoor public spaces you can visit.

We are a family owned and operated business -- and cleanliness and safety are at the core of our beliefs. Bacteria, germs and viruses are not to be taken lightly, and over the years we’ve implemented industry-leading mitigation and cleaning practices -- and recently we have taken additional steps to be extra vigilant:

  1. Our staff and professional cleaning teams clean all commonly used areas in the club with disinfectant and virucide agents on a daily basis.
  2. Our exercise equipment, high touch points and counters are cleaned multiple times daily with a disinfectant and virucide.
  3. We dispose of/recycle cleaning cloths after each use.
  4. At every club we have commercial-grade disinfectant and virucide agent dispensing machines that are safer, more reliable, more accurate and more sustainable than any other chemical dispensing system on the market.
  5. We have a hand sanitizing dispensing station located at the front desk of each club for use by members, guests and staff.

In the coming weeks, the Covid-19 virus will spread throughout the country. Our goal is to safely serve you throughout this event by maintaining our industry-leading cleaning practices and continuing to be one of the safest indoor spaces you can visit during this crisis. Some things we would like to do in partnership with you during this event:

  1. We have placed the membership card scanner on the front desk facing you upon entry of the club -- please scan yourself into the club to help minimize personal contact. 
  2. We have reduced the max available spots in each Group, Xlab and Team Training class by 50% to give participants more personal space -- please book classes in advance.
  3. Use hand sanitizer liberally and especially each time you enter and exit the club.
  4. Wipe down your equipment before and after each use with our spray bottles that contain the disinfectant and virucide agents.
  5. Our staff will be cleaning throughout the day -- please be patient if they are in your way.
  6. If you are not feeling well, have been exposed to Covid-19 or have tested positive for Covid-19, please stay home. We have instructed our staff to do the same.
  7. If anyone in the club appears to be ill, please let us know. We will ask anyone appearing to have Covid-19 or flu-like systems to leave the facility immediately.

Thank you for being part of Jersey Strong. We appreciate your support. We can’t stop the spread of this virus but we are committed to do our very best to contribute to the mitigation of its spread and impact in the communities we serve while continuing to be the safe business that you have come to expect.  

I wish you and your loved ones good health in the weeks and months to come.

Sincerely,

Stephen S. Roma

CEO | Jersey Strong
