Effective September 2nd, GYMS are open in New York City!!!
While the city will not yet allow group fitness CLASSES (think kettlebell and barbell), you may come and use the strength and cardio equipment on your own. Please note that you MUST check in to an “Open Gym” time slot using the Club Systems Member Mobile App — links and 1st time set-up directions are under the “Member Log In” tab of the website, if you haven’t already installed it — agree to a health attestation, have a temp check on entry, and train in a mask.
In the meantime, we have expanded our muay Thai schedule to include both bag drills and pad work classes; added Pekiti Tirsia Kali on-site as well as online; begun Judo solo drills trainings; and continued to offer a wide range of strength and muay Thai classes online with the Zoom app. The NY State Guidance does not currently allow BJJ training.
As state and local guidance allows, our hours and class options will expand and increase.
We are so excited to have you all training with us again!
AND…we’re back! At least on the mats.
In accordance with the New York State Department of Health Guidance for Sports and Recreation, Five Points Academy will begin a gradual, controlled reopening on Tuesday, August 11th.
Per CDC Guidelines and the NYS Guidance, we will be operating at 50% capacity, limiting attendance to classes and private training only, requiring advance (app or online) registration, following enhanced safety and hygiene protocols and instituting additional precautions (temperature screenings and mandatory masks/face coverings for all employees and participants).
Please note that Gyms and Fitness Centers continue to be prohibited from conducting indoor activities. As a results, the strength training and cardio areas will remain closed.
We will continue to offer Strength Training, Muay Thai and Pekiti Tirsia Kali classes on Zoom to accommodate students who prefer to train at home for the time being.
Please check your email inbox for complete details and protocols, and the Schedule tab for the class schedule each week.
Thank you, and we are excited to see you all back at Five Points Academy!
