Gyms across the country are taking precautions to sanitize the facilities in hopes to help prevent the potential spread of the coronavirus.

We did a digital deep-dive, searching for corporate gyms's statements on what they're doing to protect their members. Here's what we found:

LA Fitness: "We want to assure you that we are monitoring further advice from the CDC, that we have in-house staff scheduled daily to regularly clean and disinfect, we have sanitizing stations that include sanitizer for hands and for equipment, and we have ordered and currently await a shipment of additional sanitizers for use at the front desk of all our clubs.

We ask that you wipe down equipment before and after use. If we confirm that a person recently diagnosed with COVID-19 used our facilities while carrying the virus, we will perform additional cleaning of the facility and contact local health authorities. We are monitoring the situation very closely and will continue to follow the guidelines, instructions and recommendations of public health officials and the CDC."

Gold's Gym email to members: "Our gyms are currently open and our teams are hard at work maintaining a rigorous schedule of cleaning all equipment and surfaces with medical-grade solutions, in order to do everything in our power to ensure the health and safety of our Members and Team Members.

We want to do our part to help our Members continue to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle during the coming weeks. This means having the flexibility to workout wherever they are most comfortable, be it in or out of the gym. In order to support our Members in this endeavor, effective today, we are offering our GOLDS AMP digital personal training and fitness App to Golds Gym Members around the country to use for FREE until May 31, 2020*."

YMCA:"Our top priority is always the safety and well-being of our members and staff.We are committed to providing the safest possible environment for children and adults in our programs and services, and that includes taking the necessary steps to help prevent the spread of illness.

While no one can predict with certainty how severely COVID-19 will impact the United States and our local communities, we are monitoring the situation and preparing alternate plans if the condition worsens. We will keep everyone updated with information as it develops."

Life Time Fitness: "We are monitoring the evolving situation and following the guidelines of the CDC in all of our clubs and workspaces to keep our members and team members safe, and our spaces clean. This includes:

Planet Fitness email to members:"The health and wellness of our team and our members is our #1 priority. As part of our ongoing commitment to providing a clean, safe, and welcoming workout environment, we have extensive cleanliness policies and procedures in place to help protect against the spread of bacteria and germs.

Our team members conduct regular and thorough cleaning of all equipment, surfaces, and areas of the club and gym floor using disinfectant cleaning supplies. In addition, we regularly complete overnight deep cleaning of the facility."

Orangetheory Fitness response to members: "All Orangetheory staff have an aggressive program of keeping the studios clean and your health top of mind. We are redoubling our efforts to maintain our standards, for the safety of everyone.

We are closely monitoring updates from the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. We will continue to seek guidance from these agencies and local public health officials. And, we maintain an open communication channel with all of our studio staff in order to make sure the latest updates get distributed quickly."

Many of the fitness centers listed also released statements on the importance of building your immune system, as well as tips you can follow to maintain good health. Life Time says:

Smoothie King is offering free Immune Support enhancer starting Tuesday. You need to use your Healthy Rewards app to unlock the reward at time of purchase.
