Full Re-Opening Guide

Re-Opening Update

We’ve missed you all. We have been hard at work these past months making facility and policy updates and purchasing new fitness equipment, cleaning supplies and equipment to keep you safe and healthy. It’s been our plan all along to open once we can meet the CDC, State of Connecticut and YMCA standards. We have moved fitness equipment so that we can create 12’ of separation, so that you will not be required to wear a face covering while exercising. This means some equipment will be closed for use, some will be placed in Pods with other equipment and some have been removed.

Streaming Fitness Classes are now available. Go to nwcty.org/motionvibe for information on how to get started. 

Torrington: We have opened the Strength and Cardio centers, as well as the pool for lap swimming. We have also installed a new fresh-air supply air-handling unit in our cardio center, as well as, touchless water bottle filling stations and plexiglass to create a safer environment. The gymnasium will remain closed. We expect live group ex classes to begin in early July.

Winsted: We have also re-opened the Winsted location. Due to the State of Connecticut guidelines, we have separated cardio equipment between the cardio and group ex spaces.The gymnasium and pool will remain closed, and we are hoping to re-open the pool the week of July 13th. We expect live group ex classes to begin in early July as well.

Canaan: We do not have a re-open date yet. In order to maintain separation from the Geer community, we are currently working with Geer to configure an outside Y entrance. In addition, the hallway, stairs and strength center floors are being updated. As soon as we have more information, we will let you know when we can expect to re-open. Canaan members are welcome to attend either the Torrington or Winsted branches.
