Community Questions Answered: How is AFC Fitness Enhancing its HVAC System During the COVID Period?
You may have heard people teasing about the “Quarantine 15” and “stress eating” in our country right now. But in all seriousness, we really need to take care of our health during this unique time. That’s why at AFC Fitness, we are taking extraordinary steps to ensure everyone can have a safe and positive workout experience.
As it’s commonly known, and as is stated by the CDC, COVID-19 is “thought to spread mainly from person to person…” So, as we go through the COVID period, each of us has to weigh our individual health risk as we make choices about what we’re comfortable with and willing to do as part of our daily routines.
To help you make choices when it comes to your decision about returning to the gym, it’s important to know the safety improvements we’ve made throughout our clubs to ensure the safety of you, other members, and our AFC Fitness team.
Notably, we became one of the first fitness businesses in the country to install a level of air purification called needle point bi-polar ionization that is integrated within our building HVAC system. The entire fitness complex now has the latest air purification that has been proven in a lab to inactivate COVID-19, pathogens, and allergens. You can view the results of the testing on the manufacturer’s website.
While these HVAC changes are important, we stress that these improvements complement the other safety changes made in our clubs including, touchless in-club services, private room training, virtual classes, and social distancing in our large and spacious clubs – 110,000 square feet in the Bala Cynwyd health club and 88,000 square feet at our Feasterville gym location. Additionally, our CDC-accepted safety guidelines include extensive disinfecting and health procedures.

Since this is an ever-unfolding situation, as new information about COVID-19 becomes available you can be certain we’ll be adapting our procedures so we can continue to provide you safe health clubs, and you can continue to pursue your health and fitness goals with confidence at AFC Fitness.
