IT’S TIME! The State of Washington is allowing us to start running INDOOR classes in PHASE TWO! While the governor’s office has not yet confirmed when Pierce County can enter phase 2, we believe it will be on June 1. As soon as the government releases more information we will let you know. We are so thankful for all of you and your continued support of our community. We are so excited to reunite and work towards building a stronger community than ever before! Our staff is working tirelessly to safely and effectively transition you back to the gym through our program, Armor Rebuild. We have closely examined the regulations set forth by the State of Washington to make sure we are able to open our doors and keep them open. We’ve outlined EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW in this post. Please read through these points so you can better understand our new policies and the precautions we are taking to help you safely return to the gym. For those of you who plan to remain home, we will continue to offer “Armor at Home” to support you until you are ready to return to the gym.

Participating in Class

1. Designated training stations will be marked out on the floor and your equipment will remain in that station for the duration of the class.

2. The lounge area and cubbies will not be available for use during Phase 2. Please take your gym bag to your designated work out space.


1. Thoroughly clean and disinfect all equipment prior to departure. To disinfect surfaces saturate with disinfectant solution in spray bottles provided throughout the gym. The disinfectant must sit on the surface for 10 minutes, so once you saturate the surfaces you have used please do not wipe the disinfectant off. If the surface is still wet after 10 minutes, staff members will wipe the surface down before the start of the next class.

2. Leave no later than 15 minutes after class ends to adhere to state regulations and allow Armor staff to properly clean and sanitize before the next class.

Class Size

1. There will be no more than 5 people on the Olympic side at any given time.

2. There will be no more than 5 people per instructor-led class.


High risk clients are not permitted as part of Phase 2 re-opening. High risk clients include people over the age of 65, people with serious underlying medical conditions like chronic lung disease, moderate to severe asthma and people who are immunocompromised.
