To ensure that participation does not exceed 30% capacity of the fire code and to facilitate contact tracing, patrons will be required to sign up for a work-out session time slot and fitness classes online. You may reserve multiple time slots to combine fitness classes, cardio or weights with a limit of one lap swim time slot per day. Guests can sign up for one slot per person. There will be no sharing of time slots. We ask that each visitor creates their own reservation account. Time slots will be designed in three categories:

  • Fitness Class reservations (on land, aqua classes and virtual)
  • Lap Swim reservations
  • Cardio & Weights area reservations

These limits will be evaluated and adjusted based on facility usage. Please always follow the directions of EVCC staff  and ask for assistance if needed. This is new to us as well. We are trying to keep everyone safe, while trying to figure out what will work best for everyone within the order limits. Keep in mind that being able to open is due to a variance Larimer County Public Health Department received for fitness facilities from the State of Colorado, and any issues can quickly revert to closures. Thank you in advance for your patience.
