Health Clubs Are Part Of The Solution!
After adding back even more services this week, we continue to be grateful for all that we can offer at the club! Our beautiful four acres have allowed us to spread out the indoor exercise equipment, so we can continue to boost our immunity by exercising! The club industry continues to do a fantastic job of not spreading the virus. Check out this study conducted by the same company we use for our member surveys:
Of more than 49.4 million health club visits over three months, 0.0023 percent tested positive for COVID-19, which is more than 500 times less than the current estimated U.S. national average, according to a study by MXM, a technology and knowledge transfer company specializing in member tracking within the fitness industry.
The study tracked member check-in data from May 1-Aug. 6 at 2,873 U.S. health clubs and studios compared to self-reported infection rates. Participating clubs included Anytime Fitness, LifeTime, Planet Fitness, and Orangetheory. "As recently as a few months ago, the data correlating fitness facility visits and mitigating risk was practically nonexistent," MXM CEO Blair McHaney said in a media release. " All that's changed – and for the better. It's become abundantly clear that the safety measures gyms, sports clubs and boutique fitness centers have in place are not only incredibly effective at keeping their membership safe but also curbing any potential spread of COVID-19 during a time when we all need access to exercise facilities to stay healthy."
Group Fitness Classes
We are thrilled to currently be offering 34 live classes at the club, and 66 Zoom classes from the combined CAC Clubs! This is more than twice as many classes as we offered before the club's closure. We added another one this week - Thursday at 3:30 is Fit Kids w/ Sensei Gary. Please keep checking your club app for changes, as the group fitness schedule evolves as space allows us. All of the ABAC Zoom classes are now listed on the app as well!. The full CAC Zoom Class Schedule will continue to be emailed weekly.
Swim Lane Rule & Other Reminders
Thank you to everyone that has helped us follow the rules so that we can stay open! Please do not ease up now, as we really need to keep up the good work.
- We will be strictly enforcing the rule of no more than two people in a swim lane at the same time, while single swimming is strongly encouraged. If you have a family of more than two people that want to swim, you need to take turns, or reserve more than one lane please.
- Face coverings are required in the lobby, tennis court walkway, and locker rooms for anyone over 2 years of age. Everyone will be asked to do this, every time they come to the club, so please do not give the staff a hard time about it. A towel or t-shirt does not count. You will be asked to go back to your car to get your mask if you don't have it on.
- All equipment used must be thoroughly cleaned after each use by each member. Members have been doing a fantastic job so far - THANK YOU!! We are also cleaning all the equipment often throughout the day, and each locker room almost every hour.
- Six feet of physical distancing is required through the whole club. Please stand six feet away from staff and other members.
- Please be very careful about leaving belongings behind, as we are not able to store them for very long.
- We are not providing towels at this time.
- There is a $20 fee for pool reservation no shows, and for cancellations less than 12 hours before your reservation.
- Reminder that the small pool has five household colored sections. You must reserve an area using the app or online, and each household can only reserve one small pool spot per day. Please do not move over to share someone else's household section when yours is over. We have the sections scheduled in order to keep the pool under a certain capacity. If you would like to stay longer than the 90 minutes, feel free to ask the front desk if there is any free time after your reservation. Please turn the tag on your table to the red side before you leave.

Get To Know Our Chef Arturo Cardenas
Arturo was born in Baja California and relocated to the United States in 1995. He got into the cooking industry at a young age washing dishes for his uncle who owns Francisco's Country Kitchen and other restaurants in the area. More recently he came to us from the San Luis Obispo Country Club as their Sous Chef, while prior to that he cooked at Old Port Inn and Spyglass Restaurant. His favorite foods to cook are Baja, Mediterranean, and Asian Cuisine. In his free time he enjoys practicing martial arts and exercising. Something very important to him is his faith, as he is also a Christian Minister. He also is very proud to have received his legal citizenship (Green Card) after 23 years of trying. His favorite part about working at the club is the co-workers, especially Travis. In his words, "I love coming to work in an environment that is healthy both physically and mentally". Going forward we are going to share some of Chef's favorite recipes, and if you have any suggestions for Wednesday Night Dinners To-Go we would love to hear them!
