Earlier this year we wrote that one this is certain – change. That sentiment remains. Hy-Vee Arena has continued to adapt to the ever-changing environment we are in with the Coronavirus pandemic. Even with all the twists and turns, we are adjusting while we try to keep activities safe at the Arena.

Kansas City, MO Mayor Lucas has implemented a new mandate to take affect 12:01 am on Friday, November 20th.  The most noticeable changes are to the mask requirement and fluctuations to the amount of people per space.  Hy-Vee Arena has required mask wearing inside the building since this summer and has restricted the amount of people in the building for events and individual business suites.  We have adapted to the new mandates put forth by the mayor.

We hope that with the continued effort from our community, Hy-Vee Arena can be a positive source of health, wellness, and perseverance. Stay safe and remember to Be Kind.

Fitness Center Safety Procedures

Please remember things are changing daily in our current environment. We at Arena Alive Fitness and Hy-Vee Arena are committed to adapting and changing to best serve our members and keep them safe. Please continue to check our website for latest information.

  • Most importantly, please don’t come to the fitness center if you’ve been diagnosed with coronavirus, you’ve been in close proximity to someone who has recently had the coronavirus, if you’re feeling sick, you have a fever, you have a cough or you’re experiencing general difficulty breathing.
  • Please maintain good hygiene and continue to wash your hands frequently.  We will have hand sanitizer, hospital grade gym wipes and disinfectant spray bottles (just like normal, but more plentiful) available for use throughout the fitness center.  We encourage you to also bring your own bottle of hand sanitizer with you.
  • As always, proper gym etiquette is expected. We ask that you remember to wipe down all fitness equipment after use (feel free to wipe it down prior to use as well).  Our team will also be disinfecting all equipment and flooring as well. No outside equipment will be allowed in the fitness center.
  • Due to the recent changes made by the KCMO 9th Amended Emergency Order, face masks or face coverings ARE REQUIRED. Our staff will be wearing masks and gloves for your safety.  We understand that working out in a mask will not be easy and we ask that you do so with caution. Please bring your own masks. If you do not have one, we will have them available for purchase. We are also asking that you bring a towel for sweat. Now more the ever it is important that we continue to wipe our sweat off and not let it contaminate things and people around us.
  • Please note that we are mandated and reserve the right to limit occupancy and class size in the physical space to maintain effective physical distancing practices. You will notice arrows on the floors to ensure everyone is going in the same direction much like we are experiencing at big stores. Fitness staff will be helping to ensure everyone abides by physical distancing rules, staying 6′ away from others. We have done a little rearranging to comply with social distancing requirements.
  • In addition, there will be distinct 10ft x 10ft areas where you can perform your workout if you are not using machines. We ask that you take the equipment you’ll need for your workout into your area and remain there until you are finished. Then you can wipe down what you used and put it away. Again, staff will be there to assist or if you have questions.
  • The lockers in the fitness center will be available for use as normal. We are requesting that you refrain from bringing in more personal items than necessary. We will have bathroom access however the locker rooms and showers will not be available.
