- October 14, 2020

In the last press conference it was decided that gyms will remain open! The government recognizes that sport is very important in these times. Comfortable and safe sports therefore remain possible! 

 

We are also very happy with the message from the national government: “For group lessons for individual sports (such as boot camp, yoga or spinning), the maximum number of 30 people per room applies inside. Outside groups of up to 4 people are allowed ”.

You can still train at Essink or take a group lesson to stay fit and healthy this time. We do ask you to take the following into account:

  • At Essink, a mouth mask is mandatory with the exception of the sports areas. You therefore wear a mouth mask when entering and when leaving the building. The mouth mask can be removed during class or in the fitness room.
  • Changing clothes, showering and a sauna visit are not allowed, you are only allowed to use the lockers in the changing rooms.
  • The catering industry will remain closed for the time being, but drinks can be taken home.
  • The Small Group Training Outdoor will continue as it is on our own site.
  • Judo, Jiu-Jitsu and Aikido are unfortunately not available for adults, participants are allowed to participate in another group lesson or fitness.
  • Boxing-fit class is contactless and will be bag training.
  • You may only change clothes for the use of the swimming pool, unfortunately the showers remain out of use.

 

The off-peak hours at our club are between 12:00 and 17:00 and after 20:30, so you can train even more quietly. Also pay close attention to 1.5m and the other basic rules to ensure safety for yourself, trainers and fellow athletes.

This partial lockdown has been decided for the next four weeks. After that we will see further and hopefully it has improved sufficiently. Together we will also get through this!

We do our best to offer you an optimal service during this time. Thank you for your understanding! 🧡 

Yes!

You can count on it that you can exercise safely at Essink! We look forward to receiving you and working with you on a good lifestyle. 

We welcome you 100% RIVM proof. In addition to exercising in a responsible manner, we think it is especially important that you can enjoy exercising with us. In this message you can read more about your visit with regard to the main points of the RIVM guidelines.

1.5 meters away

Just like everywhere, the 1.5 meter rule also applies at Essink. This rule is guaranteed at every sports venue. The most effective way to do this is to limit the number of people in the building. Central to this is the compulsory reservation of sports time via the Essink app. In this way we let fitness and Milon athletes drop in, so we guarantee that the hall will never be busy. The group lessons also have a maximum number of participants, depending on the room and the type of lesson.

We ask you as much as possible to change and shower at home. Our facilities are open, but we ask you to observe the 1.5 meter rule. 

Milon

Milon Circle sports are also 1.5 meters away. We do this by always leaving a machine between the participants. Instead of three cardio machines, there are now two.

Ventilation

Our modern ventilation system more than meets the RIVM conditions, we set the system in such a way that 100% fresh outside air is always blown in. The air is completely refreshed every 10 minutes in all rooms.

Wash hands

At the entrance there is a no-touch dispenser with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Disinfection of the hands is mandatory before exercise.

Changing rooms and showers

We ask you as much as possible to change and shower at home. Our facilities are open, but we ask you to observe the 1.5 meter rule. 

Hygiene

All employees make an effort to keep materials and door handles clean. We do this at least 5 times a day. There are also means available to clean materials yourself. If you opt for maximum protection, you can use disposable gloves for free, which avoids all contact. Use of towel is mandatory on all appliances and mats.

Essink app

We started with the Essink app since the beginning of May and we are pleased to see that so many members have already started using it enthusiastically. Many have become accustomed to reserving a place during the Pop-Up Gym. The app also serves as a triage, so that we ensure that no one with symptoms is exercising. It is not possible to exercise with us without a reservation. You can make a reservation until just before the start, so it does not have to mean that you always have to plan ahead.

Activation app

Have you never used the app before and had no email? Then sign up to via essink.nl/app and we send the activation email manually.

Before you sign up for this, check your spam carefully, a new activation link will probably end up here again.

Administration

During the period of closure (March 16 to July 1, 2020), we chose to pause all memberships. This means that both the payment and the course of the membership have been paused. For example, if you had paid in advance for the calendar year 2020, you have now paid until mid-April 2021.

Lockdown December 2020

Dear members of Essink,

Our Prime Minister announced on December 14, 2020 that the Netherlands will be in lock-down until January 19, 2021.
Unfortunately, sports are not possible for the time being, but understandable given the circumstances, our sports center will be closed for 5 weeks from Tuesday 15 December.

On the other hand, we are also concerned about your physical and mental well-being. Exercise is extremely important to stay healthy and fit, and to build up the strongest possible resistance to keep the virus at bay. That's why we've worked hard behind the scenes in recent days to find the best alternative for your club visit.

 

We have come up with 3 options, of which we think everyone can agree with one of the options. Of course we want to continue our beautiful club even after this economically difficult period and to be able to receive you again as usual.
