Corona Virus Update 3/23

Dear Members,

Rapid City, and Pennington County as a whole, has yet to have a confirmed case of Corona virus. We want to keep it that way. Accordingly, BHCF has made the difficult decision to suspend all group classes until the end of the lockdown period that is set to begin on Friday March 27, at 7pm.

The risks are simply too great to justify continued group classes at this time. We hope you understand.

For those with 24/7 access, we will still allow you to utilize the gym for the remainder of the week, but all standard 24/7 rules still apply, along with the additional rules we posted on Sunday. Wash your hands upon arrival, clean the equipment after use, and don’t come to the gym if you’re sick. Be smart.

Beginning on Friday at 7pm the gym will be closed both for group classes and for 24/7 access. We hope and pray that these restrictions can be lifted in early April. If there are any changes to Rapid City’s lockdown ordinance, we will reevaluate the situation and update accordingly.

We will continue to offer services by way of at-home workouts, remote coaching, and possible track workouts beginning next week. More on that later. For now, we are offering to loan equipment to those who desire it. If you want a kettlebell, a couple dumbbells, an abmat, or a jump rope, we are happy to share. To facilitate this in an organized manner, we will be giving out disinfected equipment on Friday from 5pm – 7pm. Please swing by and let us know what you need. We will bring it out to your car. If you can’t make it then, let us know and we can make other accommodations.

Once again, thank you for your continued support. We have no gym without our members. This will pass, hopefully sooner than later, and things will return to normal. We are sure of it. Stay tuned for future updates. Until then, keep the faith, and wash your hands.
