We are excited that as of today, Orange County is now in the yellow tier. The steam room, saunas, and indoor spas will re-open Wednesday, May 19 at 12:00pm! We are also encouraged by Governor Newsom’s announcement that California is preparing to fully reopen its economy on June 15.

Although the CDC has lifted the mask requirement both indoors and outdoors for those who are fully vaccinated, the state of California has not. Governor Newsom recently announced that he anticipates removing the mask mandate on June 15. We will continue to follow state and local guidelines as it relates to COVID-19 protocols and will continue to remove restrictions as permitted in our area.

Here’s what you can look forward to at the club now, while in the yellow tier:

  • • Steam, sauna, and indoor spas open
  • • Citrus Bar open
  • • Increased capacity in all indoor spaces
  • • Continue to offer equipment both indoors and outdoors
  • • Continuation of the highest standard for cleanliness protocols

Here's what you can look forward to at the club once California fully reopens on June 15:

  • • Lifted capacity restrictions in all areas, including fitness, group fitness, Kids World, Citrus Fresh Grill & Market, court sports, aquatics area, and more
  • • Additional indoor and outdoor group fitness classes added to the schedule
  • • Additional equipment added to the indoor fitness floor
  • • Court sports to resume to full capacity with pick-up games, drop-in play, and leagues to follow in the fall
  • • We will continue to use reservations for group fitness classes, lap swimming, and Kids World
  • • Ability to bring guests to the club

We've loved the addition of these new programs and classes and we will continue to offer them to our members:

We look forward to supporting our members and guests on their fitness journey as we start to resume more robust club operations and services. We appreciate your dedication to the ClubSport community and thank you for being on this journey with us.

We are excited to announce that indoor fitness is back open! With this re-opening, we will expand our hours to 10:00pm ("The Garage" will close at 9pm each night) every day and open access to all court sports (basketball, squash, and racquetball), the fitness floors, and The Edge!

As we embark on re-opening our indoor spaces, we will continue to offer our full line-up of equipment and the majority of classes outdoors to provide the variety you need to fit your level of comfort. As always, every decision we make has the health and safety of our members and associates in mind.

As a reminder, members are required to wear face coverings at all times while indoors, including when exercising. Face coverings are NOT required while exercising OUTDOORS when maintaining at least 6 feet or physical distance from others, for children under 2 years old, while showering or swimming, while actively consuming food or beverage, or anyone who falls in the category as determined exempt by state.

We are so excited to move back indoors and to be expanding our hours, classes, and offerings. We have been preparing and welcome you inside with open arms!

 

--------- Communication shared on December 4, 2020 ---------

As COVID-19 continues to impact our daily lives, we are grateful the state of California has recognized the importance of exercise for your mental health. We got into this business over 30 years ago as an outlet not just for exercise but as a place for community, connection, and fun. And while that connection remains at least 6-feet apart, we are determined to provide our members with a place to swim away stress, run off tension, take a break from worry while lifting weights, and heal with a yoga class.

Our members are not just a membership number, but a member of our family. We will continue to remain open for business outdoors to serve our member’s needs, whatever they may be.

Thank you for choosing us.

Orange County announced today that all fitness operations must be moved outdoors. The good news is that the majority of our equipment is already outdoors! We will add to our outdoor equipment by bringing some of what was moved indoors back outside again. All of our group fitness classes, including our new Formula3 classes, will continue to run outdoors and all of our equipment is covered allowing you to exercise rain or shine!

Thank you for choosing Clubsport for your wellness needs at a time when physical and mental health are so important. We will continue to provide ample equipment and classes outdoors so we can continue to support your needs.

I look forward to seeing you outside at the club!
