NEWS & EVENTS
September 18th, 2021
On September 15th, the government announced new Covid-19 restrictions to help ease the stress on our overwhelmed healthcare system. We have chosen not to implement the Restrictions Exemption Program at our facility because we understand how important health and fitness is for our members.
We DO NOT require proof of vaccination. Masks will continue to be mandatory upon entry and exit, and will be enforced. Please social distance from other members while working out and continue to sanitize the machines after you're done.
We have recently updated our membership freeze policy. Currently we allow freezes up to 2 months at a time, but we will no longer allow multiple freezes that extend over 3 months. After 3 months, there will be a charge of $5 per month to continue your freeze. If your membership is currently frozen, we will allow a 1 month grace period to allow you to decide if you would like to keep your membership frozen or cancel.

Hello for good this time, we hope!
As per the "Open for Summer" plans, tomorrow is the start of Stage 2 which means as of 10AM we are OPEN!
We will be back to our regular staffed hours of 10AM - 8PM Monday through Friday, and 12PM - 8PM on weekends. Outside of those times you may come into the gym if you have a key fob, starting at 8:00PM tomorrow, including our new back door access! A reminder that if you come into our facilities after hours, please DO NOT allow others in with your key fob. You do not know other members status with the gym (or if they're still a paying member). We WILL deactivate your key fob when it's caught on camera.
Always scan your barcode anytime you enter the gym, no matter what. If you lost yours, you can buy a new one at the front desk.
Don't forget to wear your mask while entering and exiting the gym. Our front desk staff doesn't want to have to babysit you all.
Also a reminder that the yearly enhancement fee of $52.45 per person will be due and charged on July 15th, 2021. This fee will be charged even if your account is frozen, as this is a mandatory gym fee.
We know the last charge for biweekly members was put through the day we shut down on May 12th. We will honour that time missed and biweekly membership charges will begin again on June 23rd. And like previous lock downs, those of you on Monthly and Yearly memberships will have the time missed, bumped onto your account.
Summer is here and gyms are back! Good vibes and lift heavy.
See you tomorrow!

April 7th, 2021
As I am sure many of you heard, the government announced yesterday, April 6th, that the province is moving back to Stage 1 restrictions. This unfortunately means that gyms will be back operating as a 1 on 1 training facility. The Bar Fitness is not a trainer led facility, so we were forced to close our doors at 8PM last night until further notice.
Just like the previous lock downs, all accounts have been frozen and no charges will be billed to your accounts. The last payment processed will have been for April 7th. Our payments are processed through our system 3 days ahead and there is no way for us to stop it, you will see the payment come out either today or on April 8th. As stated in your membership contracts we are unable to provide any refunds. The 2 weeks paid for today will be honoured when we are allowed to open our doors again. Like we have done in the past, all monthly, yearly, and new membership sign ups will have their time bumped forward when we reopen. You will not lose any time that you paid for.
We had some exciting things happening in the front store and we are excited to share them with you when the time is right again. Until then, stay safe as always and keep working towards your goals. This time away from the gym never gets easier, but The Bar Fitness family will make it out stronger than before.
