The Covid-19 outbreak continues to impact our lives in ways that none of us could have imagined. Social distancing has been adopted by government leaders as the primary method of controlling the spread of this disease, and as such Governor Inslee has ordered many different types of businesses to be closed until further notice. “General” fitness facilities have been listed as part of the emergency proclamation.
Effective Wednesday, March 18, all VMC Lifestyle Medicine Fitness Center facilities will be closed to our members and patients. This includes the Fitness Center on the main VMC campus, and at Maple Valley and Covington. Access to the exercise equipment, pool and locker rooms will all be closed for at least two weeks, but possibly longer.
During this time, Lifestyle Medicine staff will be seeking to capitalize even further on our ability to work with our clients remotely through the Technogym MyWellness platform. Lifestyle 365 members will receive updated individualized programming and our Exercise Specialists will be reaching out to our general membership in the coming days with fun, entertaining, and practical ways to continue working toward your health goals without the need of facility access. In addition, we will be offering tele-health style sessions with your Exercise Specialist who will help you to design a home-based program with resources you probably already have. Please look for communication about these services from your Exercise Specialist in the coming days.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank each one of you for your support during this very difficult time. Your wellness team recognizes the importance of maintaining healthy lifestyle habits during this stressful time and is dedicated to assisting every client toward this end. While we will immediately be offering the free option of putting accounts on hold, we are asking you to give us the chance to display our value in knowledge, service, and accountability by continuing your membership with us. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your request to place a hold on your account should you ultimately decide such action is necessary.
We are taking every precaution to keep our members safe, please feel free to contact us for any questions. Our team sincerely thanks you for your understanding during this time of uncertainty.
