Sept 4, 2021

As of Sept 4th, we are happy to announce that our St. Albert gym is fully accessible and booking a session is no longer required. Your health and safety are always a priority, and as such we are still keeping our sanitization at a premium.

The Alberta government has put in temporary restrictions mandatory for us to be together safely. When entering the club and when transitioning between spaces such as locker room to the studio or locker room to the gym floor, please wear your mask.

You are not required to wear a mask while engaging in physical exercise. However, our Team and Personal Trainers will be wearing masks, and the Group Fitness and Yoga leaders will wear masks as well until engaging in activity alongside you. We are the gold standard of cleanliness and sanitary measures and we look to continue to serve you with your safety and health as our top priority.

It was announced this afternoon by Alberta Health Services that all indoor group fitness classes and team sports will be suspended temporarily for a 2-week period from November 13th – 27th (Please see link below).

However, Sturgeon Valley Athletic Club WILL remain open and operational during this time. Since we have reopened, our singular focus has been providing our members with the cleanest and safest environment possible. As unfortunate as the news is, our gym floor IS open and remains an excellent way for you to continue to address all your health and wellness needs.

In addition to exercising in our amazing gym, we will also look to implement on-line workouts so that you will still have access to many of your favorite instructors. This is all to continue to provide you with as many fitness options as possible during this very important time. More information on this to follow in the coming days.

We here at Sturgeon Valley Athletic Club are extremely grateful for all of you! We remain committed to being socially conscious for the protection of our members and the community at large.
