CrossFit Preferred Reopening Plan

By: 0

We are EXTREMELY EXCITED to get you all back in the gym! We have definitely missed seeing all of you and attacking WOD’s together. We know this time has been challenging for many of you. We want to first take the time to say THANK YOU to each of you for your support over the last several weeks. We have never felt so much love and encouragement and we hope you all know how much we appreciate it. With your support not only are we able to reopen our doors, but we have been able to continue to pay your coaches. So thank you! 

We are so excited to announce that we will be REOPENING our doors!! Monday May 18th will be our first full day of classes. We can’t wait to see all your faces! To make sure things run smoothly we have put some guidelines in place. Here is a list of things you can expect at CrossFit Preferred. 

    • Deep Cleaning – During our closure we have spent extra time on the gym to ensure it is in tip top shape. The whole gym has been deep cleaned, walls have been painted, and mats pulled up and cleaned. We will be doing another deep cleaning this weekend before our doors reopen.


  • Social Distancing Stations – We will be setting up 9 Workout Stations in the gym
  • Station will be an 8×15 ft spot with access to the rig and pull up bar.
  • Stations will be set up with all the equipment you will need for the daily workout to ensure proper distancing and cleanliness of equipment.
  • Stations will also be stocked with personal sanitizing spray and cloth.


      • It will be the athletes responsibility to clean and disinfect all the equipment in their station at the end of their training session.
      • Coaches will spot mop the floor as they see the need in between classes
    • Pre Register for class – class size will be limited to 9 athletes to ensure proper distancing. Pre Registration for class is REQUIRED to attend. Each class will have a waitlist as well. All athletes that are registered for a class MUST attend that class or remove their name from the registration within one hour of class start time to allow the next person on the waitlist to attend.
      • Reserve a spot in your preferred class time through the Wodify app up to 48 hours before class.
      • If your schedule is flexible please consider scheduling a less popular class time to allow those who may have a tighter schedule to get their workouts in.


  • Class Time and Schedules – To enforce social distancing we have limited class sizes to 9 people but may be subject to change as the weeks go on. This first week will be a trial period as we navigate this new way of class sizes. We have added a few extra classes each day to allow for more attendance. We will also be tracking busier class times, and attendance to schedule more or less classes at certain times of the day as weeks go on. Class times are as follows.

Monday –  Friday Morning

      • 7:45am-8:45am (CrossFit)
      • 9:00am-10:00am (CrossFit)
    • Minimal Touch Check in and scoring – We will no longer have members login to class using the main computer at the gym.
      •  All athletes will use the WODIFY app to log into class and score their workout.
      • Meghan or the front desk staff can log you in and record your workout of the day into Wodify.


  • No Child Care – Unfortunately there can not be childcare during this time. We apologize and as things settle we will absolutely revisit this. For those unable to come in due to needing childcare please contact Tiersa to discuss options.


    • Minimal Touch Bathroom – We have switched out our faucet and soap dispenser to sensored units to minimize surface contact with potential germ filled areas.
      • Bathrooms will be sanitized between each class to insure cleanliness


  • Gym Sanitation 
      • All gym surfaces will be sanitized daily
      • Gym floor will continue to be cleaned daily as well as spot mopped in between classes
      • Classes will be 15 minutes apart to allow for proper cleaning of surfaces
      • Coaches will clean the bathroom, spot mop and wipe commonly touched surfaces between each class.
  • Enter and Exit plan – Athletes will enter through the front desk door and exit using the double doors in the back of the room. A separate stretching and sitting area will be set up outside the double doors for athletes to use before and after class. 
      • Athletes will be provided with hand sanitizer to use as they enter the gym. 
  • Programming – We realize many of you haven’t touched a barbell or a heavy weight in almost two months. We know you’re all dying to come in and crush the weights, however it’s important that we take a slow approach to this. Our number one priority is to help you ease back into fitness in a safe way to keep you all injury free. And we have a plan to help you do this. 
    • Encourage you all to come more frequently than normal and keep intensity moderate.
    • Lower RX weights to adjust accordingly for the first few weeks
    • High focus on stimulus of the workout over RX’ing a workout.
      • Remember it’s more about reconnecting with each other and making progress with your fitness.
    • Virtual Class –  We will still be offering At Home programming and ONE ZOOM class a day through the month of May for those that are unable or uncomfortable coming into the gym.
      • Zoom class will be moved to 11:00am to accommodate the increase in morning CrossFit Classes.

We support you in your personal choice during this difficult time if you choose to continue the stay at home protocol. We plan to continue all online platform training as well as equipment loan outs for those in this situation. Please contact Tiersa for more information.

To allow for classes to resume we require all equipment to be returned. We understand that with the tight class cap and schedules some people will still choose or need to workout from home. In order to see what equipment we have to loan out we need to get 100% of our equipment back to CFP by Saturday. Drop off times will be as follows:

  • Wednesday 3:30pm – 6:30pm
  • Thursday 6:30am – 12pm, 5:00pm – 7:00pm
  • Friday 6:30am – 11:00am
  • Saturday 8:00am-9:30 am

As you drop off your equipment you will be asked to find your name on the equipment rental form and mark your equipment returned. All items that are not marked off on the sheet will be charged for.

Thank you for being patient as we navigate these changes together. We will be learning and changing things as the weeks go by to better accommodate each of you. We are doing everything in our power to ensure you stay healthy and active during this time while keeping you all in the gym. Can’t wait to see you all next week!!
