Dear Seattle Athletic Club Member,

Over the past few weeks, we have been working closely with the State and County to continually assess and update our available  amenities with the ongoing amendments to the Governors Safe Start proclamation. Please take note of our current business hours as well as our updated services and amenities that are currently available. Unfortunately, unsupervised general Club use will not be permitted during this stage.

    What will be available: Group-X classes with a maximum of 5 participants, Small group trainings,  1:1 Fitness, Pilates and Squash lessons, Squash Court reservation, Basketball/Badminton reservation and Cardio/Weight room reservation (5 spots max).

  • Keep in mind, due to class sizes being small and in high demand, we will have advance reservations of only 24 hours, spots must be reserved and there will be a waitlist available for up to 3 people.
  • In addition, “High-Risk” individuals will be permitted to enter the facility. (High–risk individuals were previously defined as “…people over the age of 65, people with serious underlying medical conditions like chronic lung disease, moderate to severe asthma and people who are immunocompromised”) Once again, this group is now able to access the clubs facilities and services in Phase 2.
  • For those who plan to remain home for a while, we will continue to offer select classes to be streamed on Zoom. Links can be found in the class description.
  • Membership dues will remain on hold during Phase 2, as general unsupervised club access is still restricted. The hold fee (⅓ of your current dues rate) will keep your membership in good standing.

With the ever evolving State and County regulations, we will continue to assess and update the services and amenities we are able to provide to our membership. 

However, we will continue to strictly adhere to the current guidelines until we are advised otherwise by the State. Our shared mission, above all, is to protect and enhance the health and safety of our community.

We are extremely grateful and appreciative for your continued support of our club, its staff and our community. It’s in times of hardship such as these, that we get to see the immense strength and inspiration that communities like ours provide.

We are here to help in whatever capacity we are able and are eagerly awaiting the day we can welcome you back into the club.

 

Stay healthy and be well,

Seattle Athletic Club
