COVID-19 RESOURCE CENTRE

COVID-19, also known as novel coronavirus, is a serious public health concern. Businesses and communities will be at the forefront dealing with a multitude of COVID-19-related issues, which could cause severe business disruptions. Businesses are advised to prepare contingency plans to manage the COVID-19 novel coronavirus in North America and around the world.

COVID-19: Reputable Sources of Information


COVID-19 Update
March 16, 2020


Dear Team Kingsway Boxing Trainers Members and Clients,

On March 11, the World Health Organization declared the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) a global pandemic, and we all need to make decisions that best support our health and the health of those around us. As COVID-19 continues to have an impact in Canada and around the world, we wanted to share information about Kingsway Boxing Club’s efforts to ensure your health and safety, as well as our commitment to the community.

As the virus continues to spread in communities across Canada, and with Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer raising the public risk to ‘serious,’ we are seeing the need for increasingly bold action to reduce the transmission.

I am writing to you to personally inform you that we have made the difficult but important decision to close all Kingsway Boxing Club locations, effective immediately.

Our purpose has always been to invest in the community and provide the opportunity to live a healthy life. There is no moment in our history where that purpose is more important than today. Like other businesses across the country, we are closing our doors to further limit the spread of this virus and to protect the most vulnerable in our community. We know it is the right thing to do.

Special Notes:

  • Pre-Paid Sessions and program packages may be rescheduled. In the event the program is cancelled a credit will be applied to the clients account to be used within one year of purchase.
  • If it’s at all financially feasible for those with a Monthly Membership, we humbly ask that you consider continuing the monthly charge and practice remotely with us by way of our at home workouts available under Client Resources. Please consider this a gesture of support in keeping Kingsway Boxing Club  afloat during this challenge. Just as importantly, all our teachers are independent contractors, and it remains unclear at this time whether they will be at all eligible for the financial support programs being loosely proposed by the federal government at this time.

Home Workouts

  • If continuing your membership is not possible, please email jennifer@kingswayboxingclub.com to request your charges be suspended for the period for in which we’re closed.
  • We ask that if/when it comes time to suspend and restart, please exercise patience and understanding while we manage the undertaking of manually adjusting each individual pass and Membership to bring your account up to date.

We have been referred to a dedicated COVID-19 Resource Centre (see below) that provides information about the various implications of COVID-19 on businesses and their workforces, as well as key contacts should you have specific questions.

Thank you for your support! We look forward to reopening our doors as soon as possible and welcoming  you back to Kingsway Boxing as soon as possible.

In The Meantime, Keep Your Hands Up, and take care of yourself and each other.

Best Regards,

Jennifer Huggins

COVID-19 Update
March 14, 2020


Dear Team Kingsway Boxing Trainers Members and Clients,

On March 11, the World Health Organization declared the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) a global pandemic, and we all need to make decisions that best support our health and the health of those around us. As COVID-19 continues to have an impact in Canada and around the world, we wanted to share information about Kingsway Boxing Club’s preparedness efforts to ensure your health and safety, as well as our continued service.

From the onset of COVID-19, Kingsway Boxing will take ongoing advise from our sanctioning bodies (Boxing Ontario and Boxing Canada) who are meeting on a daily basis to proactively monitor developments in Canada and abroad, implement best practices and provide regular updates to our trainers and clients.

Programs that are already in session will continue at this time:

  • [Private Training] Our trainers are still available for one on one sessions. This is a good option if you would like to stay away from group settings.
  • [TRILOGY PHYSIOTHERAPY] All locations will be operational with increased safety protocols. Our therapy team is taking all necessary precautions including infection control practices, extra sanitization efforts, and additional screening precautions to actively identify anyone who may be at risk. Team members receive regular updates on the latest medical recommendations related to the outbreak.

  • [SPRING 2020] Fighting Fit For Guys
  • [SPRING 2020] Power4Teens Conditioning Program
  • [SPRING 2020] Slow flow Hatha Yoga
  • Pre-Paid Sessions and program packages may be rescheduled. In the event the program is cancelled a credit will be applied to the clients account to be used within one year of purchase.
  • We are fully prepared to implement our Business Continuity Plan to ensure uninterrupted service to our clients should the outbreak require a temporary closure and remote training.

We have been referred to a dedicated COVID-19 Resource Centre that provides information about the various implications of COVID-19 on businesses and their workforces, as well as key contacts should you have specific questions.

Please find below the changes to equipment use and protocols we are putting in place to ensure that we train together safely. This applies to all adult and youth classes including private training:
  1. If you’re sick, stay home! If you have cold or flu-like symptoms, please stay home. If you cough or sneeze at class please do so into your elbow or a tissue, and wash hands straight away.
  2. Communal gloves will no longer be available.  We ask you bring your own gloves or purchase gloves from the gym.
  3. We ask that every person train with a towel
  4. Throughout the class you will need to clean all equipment you come in contact with using the sterilization solution provided.
  5. We are trying to source hand sanitizer to put out for use before and after class, it’s hard to get the moment, so please bring your own if you have some.
  6. Our trainers will be regularly wiping down equipment with sanitizer spray as a precaution.
  7. We ask if you have returned from overseas that you follow the World Health Organization advice and get tested for COVID-19 virus when applicable.

TEAMWORK: When class is finished, all participants and trainers will be asked to wipe down any visible surface with the sterilization solution provided. If we work together to keep Kingsway clean, we will continue to work through this difficult time together.

We have increased our cleaning to nightly for any common surfaces at both location. I hope this provides you confidence in the actions we are taking to safeguard our people, our clients and our communities.

Remember the best way to keep your immune system strong is to eat healthy, drink lots of water, stay active and reduce stress. Use your best judgement. Though we are trying to provide a safe outlet during this difficult time, we want you to feel comfortable with your decisions.

We can’t compromise on the above and we apologize in advance but we need to be 100% committed to our standards.

Thanks for your support! See you at Kingsway Boxing soon.

In The Meantime, Keep Your Hands Up!

2. Please have clients bring their own towels and use disinfectant sprays to clean all surfaces in which they touch or sweat on (including weights, bags/equipment and floor surfaces)

3. Take temperature daily

4. If you have a fever, cough, or breathing disturbance stay home

5. Wash hands prior to placement of gloves

6. Purchase individual equipment (this can be done at the gym)

7. Be aware to maintain 3 feet distance from other athletes or participants

8. Avoid shaking hands, and try not to touch the face, eyes, or nose

9. Cover mouth if coughing with tissue, or elbow area

10. Wash hands with warm soapy water for 20 seconds before and after training

11. Wipe down boxing and other equipment and gym with disinfectant cleaners more than usual

12. Follow good personal hygiene after every boxing practice or competition, including showering with soap and water and washing uniforms after use

We have increased our cleaning to nightly for any common surfaces at both location. I hope this provides you confidence in the actions we are taking to safeguard our people, our clients and our communities.
