Outdoors Only Open Until Further Notice

Because of rising numbers of COVID cases, the Governor has issued new rules for many businesses, including gyms.  To comply with the new rules, Shirlee’s must close the indoor portion of our facilities. The good news is that we have two acres of fitness area, and much of it is outside. We will remain open to let our members make use of these outdoor areas.  We will keep the same Phase 1 Reopening Schedule and the same rules we issued last week, but all activities and classes must be outdoors until further notice.

We will keep you posted as we learn more about the new policy and how we will respond. Thank you to our community of staff and members during this unprecedented time.  Stay ShirleeStrong!

Phase 1 Reopening!

All of us at Shirlee’s Gym are happy to announce that we are making plans to open under Phase 1 rules!  We miss you, and we have been working hard to do everything we can to open in a manner that is safe and compliant with rules issued by the state and the county. Our gym is treasured by our Members and our Employees.  To keep it open and safe, we are asking for everyone’s cooperation and patience.  By working together in a responsible manner, we can assure that this special gym returns to being an oasis where women strengthen mind, body and spirit. 

In order to use Shirlee’s during Phase 1, you will need to review and agree to an Addendum to your contract and will need to pay a temporary $10/month sanitation fee that helps to cover our added costs associated with fighting COVID-19.  The fee will be collected on a Member’s first gym visit for the month. Please read through the policies and ask us any questions you may have. You can call (909) 985-6400 or email As a locally owned small business, we truly appreciate your help in meeting the challenges presented by the pandemic.  Without your support we could not reopen. We look forward to welcoming you back and helping you stay ShirleeStrong during this unprecedented time.

View a short video on what to expect.

Cleaning and Sanitizing

We have deep cleaned and sanitized our facilities inside and outside and even put new water in the pool! Everything is sparkling.  We will be taking extra efforts to clean throughout the day, and we ask your cooperation in helping us.

Before you come:

  • Please shower before coming to the gym.
  • Please wear freshly laundered gym clothes. Please note that the locker room/showers will be closed except to use the bathroom.  
  • Do not bring in any outside items if possible. 
  • Do not bring in any outside food or water. We will supply water bottles. 
  • If you must bring in a yoga mat, please sanitize it before and after use. 

We have set up sanitizing stations at the entrance and throughout the gym. We are also making available small spray bottles of sanitizer as well as paper towels that you may use. 

  • Sanitize your hands upon entering and upon leaving the gym.
  • Sanitize any equipment you touch before and after using.
  • Sanitize your hands frequently throughout your workout.
  • If you use the pool, please wash any sanitizer off before entering water. 

Thank you in advance for being conscientious in sanitizing everything you touch so that all of us can protect each other and feel safe. 


Temperature Check

For everyone’s safety, we have instructed Employees to come to work only if they and the people they live with are well.  We ask all Members to abide by this rule as well. If you feel at all unwell or are coughing, stay home!  To use the gym in Phase 1, you will be required to have your temperature checked upon entering the gym. Thank you for your cooperation in taking this precaution.  


Social Distancing

Public health guidelines require that we limit the number of Members in the gym overall and in each area so that individuals can maintain the physical distancing. To comply, we are implementing an appointment system.  

Learn how to make an appointment using the new app here.  You can also call the desk to make an appointment. 

During Phase 1, we are able to open most areas of the gym, but not all. The locker room will be closed except to use the bathroom.  There will be no changing areas, no use of lockers, and no showers.  The pool area will be limited to the pool itself—the sauna and jacuzzi remain closed.

All other areas of the gym will have limits, which will be posted on a sign at each area.  Please note the limit and enter an area only if it means the limit will not be exceeded. In addition, please try to maintain the maximum distancing from others that you can.  

Because appointments are limited, we ask that you respect other members by keeping your appointment and if you must cancel, do so a minimum of 24 hours in advance.  We are implementing a $10 no-show policy for missed appointments.  If you miss a personal training appointment, a session will be pulled.  If you have any questions, please contact Konnie.  This policy will help ensure that everyone has a fair chance. 

Each gym appointment is for a maximum of 1.5 hours.  Please keep track of the time and do not overstay your scheduled time.  Thank you.  


Pool Reservation

Because the pool is limited to 4 people at a time, we are requiring an additional reservation to use the pool.  If you want to use the pool, reserve your time slot at the gym using the app, then in addition, call the desk (909) 985-6400 to sign up for a pool time slot.  If you have a pool reservation, you will be allowed to bring a towel into the gym, but we ask that you make sure it is freshly laundered.  Please note that we are not allowed to open the locker room for changing or showering. You may rinse off in the outdoor shower. Our pool is sparkling clean with new fresh water and we ask that you help to keep it that way by showering before you come, putting on any suntan lotion a minimum of a half hour before entering the pool, and rinsing off any hand sanitizer before entering.  Thank you for taking these extra steps. 



We know that wearing masks, especially when working out, is not all that fun!  But we also know that wearing masks protects all of us. Following health guidelines, we are requiring  Employees to wear masks when they are around others, and we are asking Members to do the same.  Please be respectful of our community and wear a mask over mouth and nose.  Remember that masks do not replace the need for physical distance and sanitizing. Ladies, we would love to see all your lovely faces! But we want to keep everyone safe.  So, for now, bring your mask and wear it if you are near others.  Thank you!  



Because of social distancing requirements, for now classes held at the gym will be limited to our outside court area.  You will need to make an appointment using the App or by calling.  We will continue to also offer online classes, which will now also accessed over the new App.  The schedule will be subject to change so please check the App or call the desk.  Ladies, we know you are eager for classes to start again!   We are, too! Our instructors miss you!  Please have patience as we work out what is feasible.  


We are Here for You! 

Members, we know how frustrating the limits placed on us during the pandemic can be.  We apologize for any inconvenience, and want to assure you that we are working hard to make our gym reopening the best experience we can make it. These measures are temporary.  If you have concerns or questions, contact us. We appreciate your patience, understanding and support. Let’s get through this together.

Steps We Are Taking (COVID-19)

Your health is the number one priority at Shirlee’s Ultimate Women’s Gym.  Our mission, after all, is to help you strengthen mind, body and spirit. At a time when the Corona Virus (COVID-19) is officially being declared a pandemic, we know our supportive community of women can play an important role in helping you to stay strong and healthy and to keep a positive attitude. 

We want to share with you the practical steps our gym is taking. As you know, Shirlee’s has always put a high value on keeping our gym squeaky clean. We will be making even more efforts to sanitize commonly touched areas such as exercise equipment, chairs, reception desk, door pulls and bathrooms repeatedly throughout the day.

At this time, we are also reminding all members and staff to please stay home if you are sick or think you might be getting sick. 

Shirlee’s has always provided disinfectant spray and encouraged members to wipe down equipment and to wash hands frequently. We are asking you to please follow this advice especially now.

Our gym is open and our classes are still being held. If you want to make sure a class is still on, feel free to call before coming.

We can all do our part in keeping our community healthy.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact Konnie,

Thank you, Shirlee’s Management

Guest Post: Financial Tips for Small Businesses

Members:  Here at Shirlee’s Gym, we like to share good advice. Many of our members own small businesses.  Here is a guest post by Shaila Chamberlain, CPA, CMA, MBA to help you get through the financial aspects of the pandemic. We found it helpful and hope you do as well.  

Leaner, Stronger, Better!

These are hard times.  We are about one week into the restrictions brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic, and the impact on many businesses has already been devastating.  There will be those who don’t make it through and there will be those who come through limping, battered and bruised, but poised to take advantage of new opportunities ahead. 

Which will you be?

No matter the circumstances in life, we are always given a choice: fight or give up, stay or go, fish or chicken.  Today’s choices: keep on with “business as usual” until you run yourself into the ground, or “think” your way into a successful tomorrow.

Here are some things to think about your own business:

What revenue stream has the highest profit margin? 

I walked one of my clients through this exercise recently, and we found that the revenue with the highest profit margin was the one that was most ignored.  Almost all his resources were targeted towards lower margin revenue streams.  By refocusing efforts on higher quality sales, the company is poised to make more money with less effort.

Which customers are worth keeping?  

Everyone has heard of the 80/20 rule: 80% of your profits can be attributed to 20% of your customers.  We all have customers that seem to need too much, pay too slowly and haggle over every detail.  We think we know who they are, but have you ever taken the time to actually calculate this out?  When my clients see these numbers in black and white, they are ready to make tough decisions that instantly improve profitability.

Can I keep my employees?

Modeling is a great way to figure this out.  Modeling takes what is known, such as fixed costs or contribution margins, and combines them with interchangeable variables, such as future customer demand, and calculates profitability under different scenarios.  Of course, no one can predict the future, but modeling can help you see what your business might look like with 100% employee retention versus 50% employee retention.

Am I an investor or a spender?

Every penny you spend should be weighed against the benefits received.  If the benefits do not outweigh the costs, why are you buying?

Choose the Right Accountant

It’s time to stop thinking about your accountant as an expense and start thinking of her as an investment.  If your accounting staff or outside firm helps you navigate these troubling times by analyzing your business in some of the ways I mentioned above, I guarantee that they are an investment worth keeping.  If they fall short, take advantage of the downtime that you are experiencing today and reach out for more information below.  Now is the perfect time to give your business the attention it deserves, so you can come back from the crisis…

Leaner, stronger, better!
