In adherence to Governor Abbot’s executive order and guidelines for reopening, D1 Boerne reopened its doors to members and the public on Monday, May 18.
Class sizes will be reduced to maintain capacity requirements, and appointments must be made online prior to arriving to ensure space. While the Boerne facility is used to hosting multiple classes concurrently, the new class schedule is designed to make sure that only one group will be using a side of the facility at a time.
Additionally, parents dropping off their studentathletes for a Rookie, DEVO or Prep class will be asked to wait for classes in their car, instead of congregating in the D1 Lobby.
“We’re excited to get things back up and running safely,” says Coach Jason Marshall, General Manager for D1 Boerne and San Antonio. “We’ve been keeping in contact with our members via Zoom, Instagram Live, Youtube, and our D1toU app, but I know our coaches are ready to interact face-to-face with their athletes.”
All equipment will be deep-cleaned between use to ensure as safe of a workout experience as possible, and all visitors are asked to be mindful of sanitation processes that will be outlined around the gym space. It is up to the discretion of those who sign up for the classes, whether or not they choose to wear their own PPE. Gloves are recommended but not required.
The Boerne D1 location will be offering a special summer membership option for high school athletes. Valid from May 18 - Aug. 31. It will allow any high school athlete access to six classes per week at one weekly price.
D1 Boerne is also adding a new type of class to their schedule, designed specifically for high-level athletes or those preparing for college athletics and beyond. These new “College/Pro” classes will be divided in half, with a D1 coach leading the athlete in a D1 Five-Star workout for half of the allotted time, and allowing the athlete to lift according to their own requirements in the weight room for the other half.
“The closing of schools has had a huge impact on students preparing for team sports at all levels,” says Luke Van Delden, Assistant General Manager of D1 San Antonio. “A lot of these athletes have had to improvise their strength training with limited resources at home, so we want to provide a structured program led by a qualified coach that will encourage a healthy return to playing shape.”
For those athletes and teams that cannot make it to D1 Boerne or San Antonio, Virtual Training or Team Zoom workouts will still be available upon request.
Along with Team Zoom Training, D1’s Training App provides athletes a way to stay connected while physically being apart, and is currently free to any coach, team or school during coronavirus related shutdowns. For more info, call (830) 406-6270 or email jason. email@example.com.
