The Cleanest Gym In The Bay Area

Today I’m going to do something a little different.

Brag.

I haven’t read this, but I hope it’s appropriate

That’s not something I usually do. Really, it’s not something I ever do, but in this case I think it’s warranted.

Here it goes:

Castro Valley Fitness is the cleanest gym in the Bay Area.

No kidding.

Over the past three or so months we’ve spent hundreds of dollars on spray bottles, disinfectant wipes,  CDC approved cleaner, hand sanitizer, and cleaning rags to make sure that we are as inhospitable to this virus as we can possibly be.

It is NOT welcome at our facility.

Let me give you a quick rundown of our cleaning protocols at Castro Valley Fitness.

  1. Since all of our sessions are outside, anyone who goes into the gym for any reason MUST wear their mask.
  2. Only 1 or 2 people are allowed inside our 1450 sq. foot gym at any one time.
  3. Before anyone does anything they wash their hands.
  4. We maintain social distancing protocols during our outdoor sessions with a maximum of three people and one trainer there at any one time.
  5. No one shares equipment.
  6. All equipment is cleaned and disinfected either before someone else uses it, or before it is put away, including weight plates and mats.

Yes. We are taking this seriously.

Frankly, it angers me that many other facilities aren’t. I find that insulting.

I’m proud of our outdoor set up (you can see it in the video below).

I’m proud that we are helping people improve their health both mentally and physically, both of which we know are crucial in helping with this thing.


I’m proud that, along with our members, we’re figuring out how to help people in this climate and with the restrictions that are in place. It’s a fluid situation and a work in progress for sure, but I’m proud that we’re doing what we can.

If we can provide any help for you in getting through this, please let me know.

Take care and stay safe!
