In Response To COVID-19

By: 0

Hey everyone. We just wanted to take a moment to address what is already on the forefront of everyones minds and daily conversations, which is the spread of the Coronavirus/COVID-19. This has certainly been a tricky season of life to navigate, however we want you to know that CrossFit 2024 is committed to keeping our services and operations running smoothly through this time.

While we see no reason to panic, we believe wisdom and discernment are indispensable tools so we’ve been doubling down our cleaning routine to minimize transmission risk. We’ve always maintained a high standard of cleanliness since opening our doors 3 years ago, so that has only gotten better. We don’t want to take any chances so we’re disinfecting everything that is touched and replacing towels daily. We are encouraging our athletes to practice  healthy hand hygiene by washing their hands more frequently and for 20 seconds minimum. We are also practicing social distancing by: 1) limiting class sizes to 9 athletes and 1 coach in the gym (as mandated by the City of Austin officials), and 2) we are now offering daily at home workouts for those athletes remaining at home. 2024’s Corona Who? at home workout track will be listed on BTWB for our athletes and coach lead videos will be posted to our private member forums. Anyone feeling under the weather or sick has been asked to remain home. Our community has been supportive, wants to do their part and understands while this is a trying time for everyone on a global scale, these rules are being put into place for the betterment of everyone. We are remaining informed and staying on top of the breaking news as it’s released.  

We are incredibly grateful to be in a position where keeping our doors open is an option, as we know many gyms around the world don’t have that option. We know this has caused a lot of people to be disheveled out of their normal rhythms and we know how important it is to remain balanced when everything else shifts. It can easily become overwhelming if we allow it to consume us, but we intentionally reign in those thoughts and remember to let go of the things that our outside of our control and choose to focus on the things that are in our control. 

For the time being, we are not accepting drop ins to minimize foot traffic while ensuring our athletes can train safely though the outbreak. We want 2024 to remain operating as a healthy, safe and daily outlet for fitness and optimal health. We have always loved hosting our extended CrossFit family members and we greatly look forward to hosting them once again after this storm has passed. We sincerely appreciate everyones patience and understanding. 

The health and safety of our staff and community are our top priority and we believe with these steps we can do our part to minimize any further spreading of the virus. But for now be encouraged that you’ve already prioritized your health and fitness. CrossFit has prepared us for such a time as this, for the unexpected, for the uncomfortable, to persevere and come out of it stronger. You have crafted and created your iron will through weekly trainings. In the meantime, drink lots of water, get lots of sleep, and EAT HEALTHY!! That’s our very first line of defense! 

Lastly, we want to thank you so much for your business and for supporting us throughout this tough time. As a small business it means the world to us that you all continue to trust us and stick with us.

We love you guys & we’ll see you in the box soon,

The CrossFit 2024 Staff
