Update July 3, 2020
Pool Lap Swim Opens July 6
After receiving approval from the President’s Council and the Campus Safety & Security, we are pleased to announce the McKay Pool will be opening July 6 for lap swim times.
With the new state-mandated COVID requirements for pool and gym use, the Faculty of Sciences have made some important changes to how our patrons can schedule and plan their exercise session in our fitness facilities. The safety of our faculty, staff, and students is our highest priority and staying compliant with all safety measures is crucial. Facilities have been asked to reduce their capacity, and we know everyone’s time is valuable so we have found a scheduling program to allow patrons to schedule their workouts ahead of time rather than show up and hope they’re able to get in. This new scheduling tool will be used to allow all patrons to view facility availability and schedule their exercise sessions in advance. The name of the tool is Fitli and is used by many commercial gyms.
Patrons that have an iPhone can download the Fitli app for scheduling, and patrons with an Android device can use their mobile interface for scheduling. Patrons will search for “BYUH Fitness Center” in Laie, HI to find our schedules. If they mark it as a favorite in the app or online it will be saved on their profile and easy to find the next time they log on. Each patron will need to make an account on Fitli with their email and mobile number so they can receive notifications and reminders about their scheduled fitness sessions. Each patron will also have to read and sign a new waiver which includes the new rules we’re adding to make our facilities compliant and safer. Once they’ve signed the waiver, they can add a membership package for unlimited classes to their account. There is no fee for this membership (it’s a formality with the program).
Once a patron schedules an exercise session, it will show up in their calendar in their profile and they can add those to any calendaring program they might use on their phone or computer. They can also opt to receive text or email reminders for their scheduled sessions.
Use Fitli to create an account and schedule lap swim times for the pool. We do not have the weight room or cardio center schedule up yet as that has not been formally approved to open yet. Once we have that date we can add those workout sessions to the calendar.
