LifeStyles: A Safe, Clean, Comfortable Experience

Valley Health LifeStyles has always been committed to providing a safe, reassuring medical fitness experience for our members, patients, guests, and staff. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, LifeStyles is recreating that experience with an even greater focus on safety and cleanliness. We have taken the following measures to assure that our entire facility represents the new medical fitness difference – Safety, Safety, and Safety.

  • All staff, members, and visitors entering the Valley Center for Health and Wellness and LifeStyles Fitness Center will be required to wear a mask and will undergo a temperature check and a CDC safety questionnaire.

  • We will utilize a “Touch Free” check-in process with infrared barcode scanners.

  • We will use hospital grade, EPA registered, CDC approved sanitizing and disinfecting solutions that kill 99.99 percent of bacteria and viruses, including COVID-19. Our disinfection solution and program has also been approved in conjunction with The Valley Hospital Infection Control team.

  • We have state-of-the-art technology electrostatic sprayers:

    • The Victory Electrostatic Sprayer uses electrical charges to efficiently and evenly distribute disinfectant across the surface of given spaces and 360 degrees around the grips of equipment, allowing our staff to more efficiently disinfect the equipment throughout the day.

    • This highly effective technology is also used to regularly deep clean high priority areas throughout LifeStyles such as common areas, locker rooms, and rest rooms.

  • We will frequently sanitize high-touch surfaces like exercise equipment, door handles, stair railings, lockers, faucets, and more.

  • We will deep clean and disinfect locker rooms at midday and at closing time.

  • We have created a “Safety Ambassador” role where our own LifeStyles staff members will monitor the sanitization of equipment, member compliance with wiping down equipment before and after use, and enforce safe physical-distancing guidelines.

  • Our facility cleaning staff’s schedules have been updated to provide additional coverage throughout the day. They will be more highly visible and will be regularly sanitizing common areas, circulating hourly through locker rooms, and actively cleaning throughout LifeStyles during our hours of operation.

  • We have created “sanitizing stations” throughout the facility, which includes increasing the number of wall-mounted alcohol-based hand sanitizers, and adding sanitizing-wipes dispensers near all exercise equipment.

  • We have adapted a “Clean-IN, Clean OUT” policy for all LifeStyles staff, members, patients, and guests:

    • Everyone will be required to stop at a designated Hand Sanitizing Station upon entering LifeStyles while moving between exercise units, and when leaving through any doorway.

  • We are adjusting the fitness floor to ensure physical distancing between machines and we have also designated a specific area of the main fitness floor for high-intensity workouts.

Valley Health LifeStyles is a highly regarded S.A.F.E. (Safety, Accountability, Fortitude, Empathy) fitness center, providing the highest medical fitness industry and healthcare facility standards of care and customer service.
