A tremendous amount of time and energy has been devoted to reimagining the day when we could reopen again for you. Nothing is more important to us than the safety and well-being of our members and associates, and so every step we’ve taken has been with this singular goal in mind.
As a medically-based facility, we have the benefit of a team of expert clinicians from Beacon Health System to consult. And, all of our initiatives are approved by our Medical Director and Medical Advisory Board. In addition, we adhere closely to the guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control, the State of Indiana, and St Joseph & Elkhart counties.
The knowledgeable experts at Beacon Health & Fitness dedicate themselves to helping you reach your health, fitness and well-being goals. All programs are physician approved, ensuring you the safest and most effective workout possible. Membership includes access to the downtown South Bend, Granger and Elkhart locations including 24-hour access at our Granger and Elkhart locations. Our facilities include a full complement of equipment, classes and options to make the most of your time.
Cleanliness and sanitization have always been important to us, and that’s true now more than ever. Here are the additional steps we are taking:
Checking in to the facility is going to be a little different from what you’ve experienced in the past, and may take a few extra minutes. In addition to checking in with your membership keytag,
you’ll be asked to:
We’ll keep this as quick and simple as possible. You don’t even have to fill out a form – we’ll just verbally ask the following:
The Youth Activity Studio is currently open at Granger & Elkhart with a reduced capacity. A reservation is required. For more details about our safety precautions in the Youth Activity Studio, visit our YAS webpage.
With the club re-opening, your membership is active again as of Tuesday, May 26, 2020. If you are in any way uncomfortable or just don’t feel like you’re ready to come back to the club yet, that’s ok. We want you to feel comfortable, safe, and ready. If you have any concerns, please contact our membership team at 574-389-5580 or email gro.metsyshtlaehnocaeb@pihsrebmem
Yes, please contact our membership team at 574-389-5580 or email gro.metsyshtlaehnocaeb@pihsrebmem to talk about your options.
Beacon Best Medicine classes have resumed. For questions about this program please contact Jake Phillips, Clinical Integration Coordinator at gro.metsyshtlaehnocaeb@spillihpej.
A mask is still required to enter any of our facilities. And we strongly recommend the wearing of a mask when visiting us. However, while exercising, if you are able to maintain a 6 foot distance from others, it is up to you if you wear a mask or not. Masks are required 1-4pm daily, even while exercising.
Wearing a mask while exercising is a big change, that’s for sure. Some of our own staff have experimented with this, and it does require an adjustment.
In order for us to safely open, this decision was made in consultation with our Medical Director, Medical Advisory Board, and the clinical leadership at Beacon Health System.
We understand that this might not be the right time for some folks to return to the club, and that some individuals may be uncomfortable with the guidelines in place. That’s ok. Contact our membership department, and we’ll be glad to talk through your situation with you.
Of course, these guidelines are fluid, and will change over time. We hope quickly. And as these changes occur, we’ll communicate them right away.
Every step of the way, we’ll make decisions based solely on what our medical team determines is safest for our members & associates.
Locker rooms remain open for member needs, though we encourage members to limit their use of these facilities at this time.
Hand soap and shower soap will remain in each locker room, but other toiletries including shampoo, conditioner, mouthwash, shaving cream, and razors have been temporarily removed. Please bring your own toiletries if you need any of these items.
Racquetball is permissible for one-on-one play, but not two-on-two. If you borrow equipment from us to use, we’ll sanitize it every time it’s checked out.
Pickle ball has returned as well, and just like with racquetball, we’ll sanitize any equipment you borrow after every use.
Basketball is currently available at our Elkhart location with some new guidelines.
24 hour remains available at this time so that we can do a deep clean & sanitize every night. We are open during our regular hours from 5am-9pm on weekdays & 7am-5pm on weekends.
We’ve made several changes that we want to share with you:
In order to facilitate social distancing in these environments, we are implementing the following:
The indoor tracks at all three (3) locations are open for walking with masks required. The Elkhart track is open for running; Granger & South Bend are for walking only. Please note that some equipment may still remain on the tracks, so be mindful of that if you choose to walk. Remember, too, that the outdoor path in Granger is now available, as well as the city parks trail in Elkhart that connects to our facility there. These are great options, and we encourage you to give them a try!
During this phase of reopening the following policies are in effect:
Massage is open. Both the therapist and client are required to wear a mask during the massage itself. Schedule your massage today!
All water fountains & bottle refill stations are currently turned off. Complimentary coffee and tea is also currently unavailable. While bottled water is available for purchase, we encourage you to bring your own water to stay hydrated. Hydration is very important to your health and well-being during exercise, so please bring water with you to the club!
