All acac Charlottesville locations are CLOSED beginning today at 4pm and hoping to reopen next week.
Please plan to attend the Outdoor Bootcamp Training Series
Here is the newsletter from our General Managers at the Charlottesville locations:
Dear acac community:
It is with a heavy heart that we announce all acac Charlottesville locations will close this afternoon at 4:00pm. We know how many people, members, guests and team members depend on our club every day. While we have not had any outbreak of the virus occur in our acac community, in light of the recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and in an effort to be responsible stewards for our community at large, we feel continued operation at this time is inadvisable.
We will be closed for a minimum of a week, and will continue to monitor global trends and guidelines from our national health leaders to determine when it is safe to serve our members once again. We will still be performing our intensive cleaning procedures for all clubs as scheduled.
Since our leadership team started preparations for the COVID-19 virus in early February, we have diligently followed the recommendations of the CDC and our state and local health departments. We are extremely proud of our members and team, who over the past few weeks have helped take our club cleanliness to a whole new level. By stocking up on essential supplies, educating on best practices, and through extra sanitation efforts, acac has reinforced its position as the cleanest club in Charlottesville.
Effective immediately, we will no longer be placing memberships on hold. For existing members concerned about their dues, all lost time during the shutdown will be appropriately credited to your membership account. Our team will do its best in this unprecedented situation to answer your individual questions and concerns. Please be patient as it may take some time to respond. Rather than emailing or calling, please fill out this form on our website with your specific request and we will route you appropriately.
As you may have read yesterday, we have been able to secure for all of our members several free work-out-from-home options. Through our efforts, we have created exclusive partnerships with Les Mills and OpenFit (BeachBody), as well as a complimentary trial from Nia TV, with hundreds of options for staying fit during the shutdown. There are guided workouts for all levels, including some meditation, which we could all probably use a little more of right now. Please click here for more information on how to access these classes.
May all of you remain diligent and safe during this outbreak and thank you for your continued support of our club and team. We value your continued patience and loyalty and remain hopeful for only a brief interruption in service.
