The Governor and state officials have released a new framework for evaluating the prevalence and effects of COVID-19 in Oregon communities. It is a county by county framework that links prohibited and allowed activities to specific COVID metrics. This new system will be effective Thursday 12/3.

Multnomah County is currently classified in the extreme risk category. Hyatt Training is still classified as a gym. This means we are allowed in-person outside operations.

We will be offering 3 outside spaces for in-person training sessions, available by reservation. Hours to be: 6 a.m. – 4 p.m. M-F and 7-2 on Saturdays. Outside session reservations can be made through your trainer. At this time there will be no open gym times in outside areas.

Given the weather fluctuations Portland can experience in December, we are currently gauging interest in outside in-person training. Virtual training is going strong and certainly maintains the most community distance and is the warmest, driest option. In the new framework, our ability to re-open inside is directly tied to less community prevalence of COVID-19.

On an advocacy front, we will continue to try to build on our traction for personal training to be reclassified as a personal service. While we have been told no, we have not been told why. Thank you for your diligence and letter writing to support this effort.

On 11/18 we shifted to a virtual delivery for all sessions. To be able to see you outside, even occasionally, feels like a step in the right direction. We are committed to supporting your fitness, health and wellness today and in the coming months.

The BEST way forward is together. The number one thing you can do right now to stay healthy and boost your immune system is to maintain your exercise routine. Our team are pros at designing effective workouts with whatever your home space or equipment look like. It will help you manage stress, get high quality sleep each night and keep you on track with your goals and overall health. The more support each of us can have right now to stay healthy, the better.

In health,
Jeremy and Lee
