When both of Alabama’s Orders prohibited Godspeed from serving our members and community inside our four walls,
We diligently discovered a way to deliver training for our community to stay together, committed, consistent, and healthy. As with our actions during our facility closures, we want to make sure that we are both respectful and responsible as we help revitalize our Alabama, our economy, and our people.
We want to assure you that we are taking every proactive and protective measure to stay compliant with the rules, regulations, and guidelines of both our state and federal governments. We ensure that the following measures are exercised:
Monitoring the health of our staff and sending home any staff member who displays symptoms of COVID-19;
Establishing a protocol to preserve our Godspeed family’s health and well-being;
Enforcing strict social and physical distancing in all areas of the business; and
Performing regular cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting measures on all equipment and ensuring equipment is properly spaced 6 ft. apart.
Advancement to Opening Responsibly
Sanitization and Social Distancing
To safeguard both our employees and our members in the facility, our staff is trained on the protective measures outlined in the Safer-At-Home Order and in the guidelines recommended by the CDC on cleanliness and physical/social distancing best practices.
We are partnered with Cintas to provide the highest grade and quality cleaning services and supplies surpassing any of the CDC recommendations. The services and products are outlined below.
Cintas Ultraclean Service
Sanitizes Surfaces – Uses a chemical that is formulated to clean restroom surfaces while leaving a clean, pleasant scent
High-Pressure Cleaning – Removes build-up that brushes can’t reach, and eliminates the need to touch contaminated surfaces
Removes Soil and Bacteria – Cintas UltraClean® process removes all soil and dirty water, preventing cross-contamination and odor-causing bacteria
Cintas – Cleaning Chemicals
Eliminates COVID-19 after 10 minutes of contact time
Disinfect + Sanitize
ALL Surfaces (included but not limited to seating areas, equipment, water fountains, filters, and windows)
Additionally, we created a CDC-compliant sanitization and cleaning checklist to be performed daily by our staff. We are encouraging member assistance with partitioning and cleaning equipment after each use. However, we will perform a nightly sanitization of all equipment regardless of utilization. This extraordinary effort is to safeguard all of our health.
Social / Physical Distancing
In strict adherence to the Safer-At-Home Order and CDC guidelines, we created an exact protocol for entering/exiting the facility, usage of space and equipment, and class sessions. Fortuitously, the layout of our facility encourages physical distancing of more than 6 ft. without hampering your experience. The centers of each platform are 9 ft. apart in length and 11 ft. apart in width. We will instruct all individuals and clearly assign lanes for passage, equipment areas for each member, and position points for our coaches. It is our duty to be respectful of the regulations and our health by ensuring that our facility is social and physical distancing compliant. Additionally, we will give notice via our various social media channels and email. As excited as we are that we can welcome back all of our members into our facility doors, we must understand that this is a new normal and will take a collective effort to ensure all of our health and safety.
The Refined Godspeed Experience
We have constructed a new fitness experience (“Godspeed Refined”) to avoid unnecessary exposure, decrease congestions, allow for additional sanitization, elevate the service we provide, and most importantly, safeguard the health of the entire Godspeed collective.
Members and Staff must wash or sanitize their hands upon entering and leaving the facility.
It is all of our personal responsibility to adhere to the social distancing guidelines, the refined class schedule, the equipment and platform designations.
We encourage members to wear personal protective equipment at their own discretion.
Water fountains and confined common areas where people may congregate (e.g., lobby) are temporarily closed for safety.
We encourage you to bring your own water (multiple bottles if needed!).
Children will not be allowed to stay in any of the common areas during class sessions.
Only one person in the bathroom at a time.
Cooperation is key! Safety First!

It is going to take a cooperative effort as staff, members, athletes, and parents to navigate through these new uncharted waters. As with the mutual support during the height of the pandemic, we need to continue working together because our health is of utmost importance. We MUST be personally responsible for our own health a well as the entirety of the Godspeed family and community. Together, we will redefine and augment the Godspeed experience. As we initiate procedures of operation in our facility and organizing our facility to be compliant, we ask for your cooperation. Accountability is the glue that ties commitment to results. If we hold ourselves responsible to each other, then we will achieve our goals and so will you.
