NEWS & EVENTS
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.

A friendly reminder that anyone on a biweekly membership of any kind requires a 30 day cancellation notice, this means you will be charged two final biweekly payments before your membership is inactive.
All accounts were frozen when we closed in mid December. Those of you on a biweekly membership, billing will begin again on March 10th, 2021 and continue biweekly. If you paid for a yearly or monthly membership, the time missed during the lockdown will be added onto your account accordingly.
**July is just around the corner! Don't forget your annual fee of $52.45 per person will be charged on July 15th, 2021 as stated in your membership contracts. This fee goes towards gym improvements and equipment.
Previously, we mentioned that masks are to be worn during your workout. Instead, we require you to continue to socially distance and wear your mask over your nose and mouth upon entry and exit.
In regards to our booking system, we understand most of you have had issues with it. We are working on fixing this, in the mean time you're welcome to come in for a workout. Please scan your membership tag upon arrival and that will book you into our system!
Once our system is fixed, we will require you to book before coming in, as per mandatory government restrictions. As stated before, there will be no time limits when you're in the gym.

We're excited to open our doors and see our members again! Hopefully you like our new look!
As of March 3rd, 2021 The Bar Fitness will be open from 7:00AM - 10:00PM Monday to Friday, 9:00AM - 9:00PM on weekends, and 10:00AM - 6:00PM on holidays. Unfortunately, at this time we are unable to allow 24 hour access, but please keep your key fobs in case there are further changes with the government restrictions.
When entering and exiting the gym you MUST be wearing a mask covering both your nose and mouth. Please keep your mask on the entire time you are in the gym working out. Since only low intensity training is allowed, this shouldn't be a problem. We cannot make any exceptions to this rule. A friendly reminder to keep a barbell's length away from other members.
The new guidelines state all members must book an appointment before entering the gym. These appointments will not have time limits.
* Members only
* No drop ins available.
* Please book an appointment before coming in for your workout
* No time limits
* Masks are to be worn over your nose and mouth at all times - including during your workout.
* Low intensity workouts and light weights only as per government guidelines.
* 24 hours is temporarily not available
We understand the restrictions are confusing and frustrating, but we look forward to having you back and into routine. We are doing the best we can with the information we have been given.
