Important Information for Your Visit

As change room space is very limited, you may wish to come dressed to work out. Bring a water bottle, towel, and small bag for your wallet, keys, phone.

Face masks are required for entering and exiting Westside, during your workout, and in change rooms and washrooms. Masks are not required while you are in the pool, but are required on the pool deck and in hallways. You’ll see Westside employees wearing masks.

We’ve installed new signage and directional arrows on floors to help guide foot traffic. One-way traffic patterns and directional signage must be followed at all times.

Working Together for a Successful Relaunch

If you answer “yes” to any of these questions, please do not visit Westside:

  • Do you or anyone in your household have signs of illness, including a fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat or runny nose?
  • Have you or anyone in your household had contact with a person suspected or diagnosed with COVID-19?
  • Have you or anyone in your household travelled outside Canada in the past 14 days?

Use Westside's Mobile Tool to see if it's safe for you to visit. Use your mobile device to answer three easy questions before or upon your arrival. Please show our greeter your “green screen” at the entryway.

While you visit, please ensure you are physical distancing at least 2 metres (6 feet). We’re making sure to space our equipment and class participants appropriately; workouts will be spaced 3 metres (9 feet) apart.

Protect yourself! Sanitize equipment BEFORE and AFTER use with the wipes provided. Fitness staff will also disinfect equipment regularly.

To ensure we’re as clean and healthy as we can be, Westside uses:

  • Industrial electrostatic disinfecting machines 
  • Gold standard disinfecting products
  • Focused cleaning strategies, particularly in high-touch areas
  • Plexiglass barriers at Customer Service

What’s Not Available Yet:

  • Public drop-in times
  • Any equipment that cannot be adequately sanitized
  • Food services

We’ll be updating our website as new information becomes available. Be sure to check back regularly.

We are Here to Help

We are so excited to welcome you back! All our staff have been trained in the new procedures and protocols to protect community health. It’s a new world for all us, and we are happy to help you with any questions or concerns you may have.

As our operations are limited to members/passholders and we do not have the usual staff complement at this time, the best way to reach us is at info@westsiderec.com.
