DO SOMETHING TODAY THAT YOU WILL BE PROUD OF TOMORROW
Overdrive Athletic Club (updated August 2020)
1. You may only have 1 reservation per day. You are welcome to reserve a class and if you wish to train in a different class time and it’s full you can put yourself on the waitlist for another class time. But as soon as you get the confirmation that you’ve got a spot in the other class you must decide within 5 min which class you plan to attend and login and remove yourself from 1 of them. If we find that you are sitting on 2 confirmed spots (for more than 30 min) a late cancel fee will be applied.
2. Please unreserve for a class as soon as you know you can’t attend it. This will allow another person more time to prepare and know that they have a class booked. This is just being kind and considerate to fellow members, as well as helping you with time management and prioritizing your days. The window to unreserve/late cancel closes 8 hours before your class time so be sure to unreserve by that time. If you No-Show or Late Cancel a class you will be charged $20. Also be aware that if you are on a waitlist for a spot in class and you go to bed not planning to attend (or check) to see if you made it into a class the next morning then be sure to unreserve. If you miss the class because you didn’t see the email it is still your spot, and you will be a no-show. This is more important now with our 8 hour late cancellation window.
3. Our reservation window is 48 hours in advance. This will allow everyone a fair and equal opportunity to reserve their class of choice and stay organised throughout the week. Once you reserve your spot, you are committed and should prioritize this most important daily event in your lives…fitness!
4. Punctuality is a MUST. Members are expected to arrive at the gym 15 minutes prior to the start of class, and be at your station ready to go 5 minutes before the start of class. This is a fundamental life practice of being on time and respecting your peers, your coach, and most importantly yourself. DO NOT enter the gym space until the previous class has vacated and the floors cleaned.
We know this new structure and guideline is new and different for many of you, but it has been put in place to continue professionalizing our gym processes. The ultimate objective is to fully service our members in a safe, fair, and efficient manner. We are always striving to be the best and most progressive gym for you to train in.
*Please respect social spacing in the gym, and transition in/out of classes efficiently. At this time, there is no social lingering allowed inside the gym (socializing outside at your own discretion is okay).
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
The Overdrive Team
Based on the new restrictions and information placed on gyms by our Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry, we have made immediate changes to our safety measures and protocols (See Below).
In the meantime, Dr. Bonny Henry stated that “fitness centres that cater to individuals, where physical distancing can be maintained, can remain open.” Therefore, we will be offering Open Gym sessions until we receive more information from our Health Authority (our application will be submitted ASAP for approval). These changes are hopefully temporary as the Covid situation continues to be assessed over the next few weeks.
During our Open Gym sessions, a coach will be present for assistance and supervision, but will not be running an official class. The warm up and workout of the day will be programmed along with optional accessory work. You will be responsible for warming up on your own for your workout and managing your time.
-Classes must be reserved in advance as usual with our standard 8 hour window cutoff.
-A maximum 8 people per session will be allowed (to be reevaluated after the two week period)
-Each training time slot will be 45 minutes, so please manage your time accordingly.
-NO lingering inside the gym after your session, please exit the premises in a timely manner to allow for cleaning and transitions
-Please arrive 10 minutes early, and wait outside or in the lounge until the coach allows you in
-Staff will ask whether you have any COVID-19 symptoms or if you have been near anyone that does
-You MUST wear your mask upon entry and exit of the gym, and anytime you leave your workout station
-Sanitize your hands upon entering and exiting the gym.
-Staff will assign you to a station
-All workouts to be conducted inside your assigned station; all equipment will be available at your station (if you need to exchange or obtain another piece of equipment, the coach will assist you to do that)
-All personal belongings must be kept with you at all times
-You are NOT permitted to crossover or travel outside your station.
-Bring your own chalk and any workout accessories you require
-Bring a FILLED water bottle to the gym

We are fortunate that our gym can remain open and we will continue to be in contact with Vancouver Coastal Health to ensure our interpretation of the latest order is accurate and update our community as needed. We are confident that we will overcome another challenge as we have done over the past 5-6 months. Overdrive has been a safe facility as we have had NO exposures or Covid risks at all.
Again, if you have any cold or flu symptoms, or have come in contact with anyone who has a positive COVID test, report this to us and STAY HOME!
Thank you for your understanding and support. We will continue to work hard and provide our Overdrive community with the safest and best facility to train in for optimal physical and mental health!
If you have any questions or concerns please let us know.
