On March 15, Emerald City Boxing Gym was closed down per state mandate to combat the spread of COVID-19 in our community. We have been happy to do our part. Washington state has announced a phased re-opening plan in which gyms are slated for phase 3. However, we can open on a very limited basis in phase 2 for lessons and very small group fitness classes. Phase 2 is expected to begin June 1, 202 but is subject to change.
As Washington begins to reopen, the state is creating guidelines for businesses to follow. We are happy to be adhering to all the guidelines and then some. Upon reopening, all fitness equipment will be spaced to adhere to social distancing guidelines and cleaned after every use. We will no longer be offering gloves and wraps for general use and will encourage everyone to bring their own. Staff will be required to wear masks at all times. Staff and clients must remain 6 feet apart at all times. No exceptions. We will continue to clean and sanitize often and keep fans going and doors open for maximum airflow. If you have any other suggestions, we would love to hear them.
Our limited reopening in Phase 2 will bring an adjusted schedule:
Monday-Friday there will be an in-person 12 pm and 4:30 pm. The 4:30 pm will also be available virtually.
Monday and Wednesday there will be a virtual 7 pm class
Tuesday and Thursday there will be an in-person 4 pm kids class
In-person classes will be limited to ONLY 5 PEOPLE. No exceptions. Please register in advance. Cancelation within 24 hours or no-shows will be charged $20.
COVID-19 related closures have effected just about everybody in this country. Small businesses have been hit especially hard. While some financial relief has been available, it has not been enough and it has been hard to come by.
We have launched a couple different fundraising efforts. If you feel so inclined, we are accepting any help our community has to offer.
We are taking donations via Venmo (@crandall17) and distributing t-shirts made just for this fundraising effort. Just make sure to email us after you donate with shirt size.
We are also selling discounted gift cards available here:
