Zero Cases of Covid Traced to Bellingham Fitness

Club Update 11/18/20 

Bellingham Fitness has a huge covered and heated outdoor exercise

space opening next week!


After visiting with different government offices and our Washington Fitness Alliance, we’ve put together a plan and we’ll continue to go above and beyond the guidelines for the safety and comfort of all.

Bellingham Fitness is temporarily closed to indoor exercise but is reopening next week for outdoor exercise only. We’re very fortunate to have a huge outdoor space, most of which is covered from the weather! The space will be covered, heated, lighted, fenced in, securely monitored, filled with exercise equipment and have large designated spaces to work out. (You’re welcome to come tour the outdoor space prior to the opening. Pre-build out photo attached.

Bellingham Fitness has always gone above and beyond the Governor’s guidelines and like many clubs across the country, we’ve had ZERO cases traced to our club. We will continue to try and provide you with data based articles on our website and Facebook.

Our existing safety protocols will remain in effect: Temperature checks, hand sanitizers, mandatory masks over nose and mouth at all times, equipment cleaned before and after each use with the personal bottle and towel provided, distancing and size limitations. Staff will also be cleaning and disinfecting with our electrostatic sprayer.

Just like when we reopened last time, everything will be detailed at the club so it’s easy to follow.

Temporary outdoor gym hours:

Mon-Fri: 6am to 9pm

Sat-Sun: 7am to 6pm

It was so nice to be able to reopen the first time and see everyone working out again and be able to offer a newly remodeled club. We’re very fortunate to have this huge covered outdoor space so your gym workouts don’t get interrupted again. Though we’ll be providing heaters, still be prepared for some fresh air and a fond memory of how you kept your exercise going.

We will continue to follow our club motto of “Constant and Never Ending Improvement” but we cannot do it without your continued support… this is a reality. As a local family business, we THANK each and every member who has continued to support Bellingham Fitness as we get through this together! Hopefully you’ve had a chance to tour the expansion that is in the works… together we will build something great for all to enjoy for years to come.

The Washington Fitness Alliance is appealing the Governor’s announcement to close indoor fitness until Dec 14th. They continue to meet with the Governor’s office and share data so they’ll have good information as they make important decisions. The last time they appealed, the Governor’s office did make changes based on the data. This video summarizes some of the information.


For those that are able to support us by continuing to pay your membership dues during this hopefully temporary closure, you will not only receive access to our outdoor exercise space now, but we will also provide you with free access to our new sister business, PURstudios. You’ll have unlimited access to our 3 new studios (PURcycle, PURbarre and PURyoga) and our 3 new indoor pickleball courts. If you can support us, there is no need to contact us. You’re dues will continue and you’ll automatically get access when PURstudios grand opens. 

For those that are not able to support us at this time, we have offered the opportunity to freeze your membership, understanding that many of our members are also experiencing hardship due to the pandemic. Simply respond to this email service@bellinghamfitness.com with your request and/or questions and we will help you.

Stay strong. We will get through this together.

We’re proud of how hard the staff has been working.

Follow the science, create a hypothesis, conduct an experiment, follow the data, and test your assumptions.
