Dear Valued Members,

At Classics Guided Fitness, we have continuously put forth effort to give you a great fitness experience. In order to do so, there have been learning experiences that have shaped the way we deliver fitness solutions for you and our community. The passion we have to better serve our friends and community has led us to survey, listen to members and regularly update our facility and systems. Our leaders have spent a significant amount of time counseling about how to continue a sustainable and exceptional fitness experience for you for years to come and feel the upcoming improvement will enhance many of your lives.

CLASSICS GUIDED FITNESS IS TRANSITIONING TO BECOME CLASSICS MEDICAL FITNESS. AS OF MARCH 28, 2015, CLASSICS GUIDED FITNESS WILL CLOSE PERMANENTLY.

Classics Medical Fitness will open after a 2 month remodeling and transition period to minimize disruption. All current memberships under Classics Guided Fitness will be automatically cancelled and are under no contractual obligation to start up new membership. You may have the opportunity to sign up to the new medical fitness center after this approximate 2 month period. See details below about how to put your name on the “interested members” list. Classics Medical Fitness will re-open with a refined focus, improved integration with high skilled orthopedic physical therapy, workouts that are simplified and streamlined, and exclusive membership opportunities.

Classics Medical Fitness will offer you the following benefits:

  • Included quarterly fitness and musculoskeletal reviews under the supervision of a Doctor of Physical Therapy
  • Individualized programs will continue through our exclusive software, but new generalized programs will be added for functional fitness as well! You will be able to choose golf, ski, cycling, gardening, diabetes, cardiac, pulmonary or other programs that have high skilled medical research backing them.
  • WPTs bridge program from therapy to fitness will continue to be a great solution for patients discharged from Wright Physical Therapy High Skilled Treatment.
  • All cardio equipment pieces, Silver equipment and Gold equipment will be available on the premises as they are currently offered.
  • Extended early and late hours will be offered as compared to current hours.

We will initially be limiting membership to 150 total members for the Twin Falls location. Please email membership@classicsfitness.com to receive communication on the designated sign up dates and get your name on the “interested members list”. We will communicate the designated sign up dates through this email. If you would like to be considered for future membership, it will be necessary to attend an enrollment session to sign a new contract, educate on the fitness center etiquette and set up new membership terms. To be clear, please direct all communication to membership@classicsfitness.com. We will not be able to take phone calls regarding Classics membership so we will be consistently checking this email for communication.

Your current membership will not automatically renew once this facility opens so you must notify us that you would like to be on the “interested members list” and attend an enrollment session if you would like to participate. During this transition, we will terminate all member account withdrawal activity and reimburse prorated amounts that you have already paid if you choose not to apply it to new membership.

We anticipate that this transition may not fit the needs of all of our valued members. Should you choose another fitness center for your lifestyle we have contacted other community fitness solutions and have listed great options as follows:

  • If you would like to have unlimited times of the day or night to exercise for your health, ANYTIME FITNESS on Blue Lakes has generously offered to match your current Classics monthly price and waive your assessment fee.
  • The COLLEGE OF SOUTHERN IDAHO continues to offer their fitness center for a very cost effective price and they have communicated that they have memberships available. They also offer multiple high quality classes for fitness that we know will be lasting solutions for many of you who love class settings for your health.
  • SIGNATURE FITNESS and YMCA OF TWIN FALLS offer pools, classes and multiple high quality pieces of equipment as well as personal trainers.

It has been a pleasure to serve your fitness needs and we look forward to being able to better serve our members through Classics Medical Fitness.

Yours in great health,

 

 

Bryan Wright PT, DPT, Cert. MDT and Tyler Billings PT, DPT – Co-Founders of Classics.


 

 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS about this transition:

WILL YOU PLEASE ADD ME TO THE “INTERESTED MEMBERSHIP LIST”?

We appreciate your interest in becoming a member of Classics Medical Fitness and we will notify you of the upcoming enrollment sessions. Currently we anticipate holding these on June 3rd, 2015 from 7 am to 1 pm and June 5, 2015 from 12 pm to 5 pm at the Classics Medical Fitness location (1411 Falls Ave E Suite 401). We will be sending communication through email to update you should this schedule need to change. Please put these dates in your calendar and be sure to attend one of these to enroll in the fitness center. We will only be accepting 150 members initially for quality and capacity reasons.

IS THERE STILL AN AGE RECOMMENDATION FOR CLASSICS MEMBERS?

The minimum age for Classics Medical Fitness remains 40 years old. The only exception to this guideline will be employees of Wright Physical Therapy which are allowed to be members regardless of their age. The culture is built around impeccable cleanliness, mutual respect, high-skilled delivery of exercise and uplifting environments and we expect to maintain that through this specialty.

 IS CLASSICS MEDICAL FITNESS FOR WRIGHT PT PATIENTS ONLY?

Past Classics Guided Fitness members will receive top priority for eligibility to apply for memberships that are available. Wright Physical Therapy offers a unique bridge program to past Wright PT patients that necessitates that they have a priority for membership as well.

ARE YOU OFFERING A FITNESS FACILITY IN OTHER MAGIC VALLEY LOCATIONS?
Although we may expand Classics Medical Fitness in the future, it is currently only available in Twin Falls at the 1411 Falls Ave E location.

WILL WE BE ABLE TO CONTINUE TO WORK AT OUR OWN PACE ON THE EQUIPMENT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE AND TRACK OUR HISTORY AS WE DO NOW?

There will be few changes from an equipment, technology, or amenities standpoint. The following points highlight some of the main modifications including refinement of space, hours of operation, limited number of members and increased services provided to improve the member experience and make it a sustainable longterm experience. We are excited to announce that we will be adding programs that are specific to function as well as what you may already be used to through the software. For example, you may choose a skiing fitness program, or golf program that will take you through exercises geared toward functional performance. We will also have pulmonary, diabetes and cardiac programs for high function, post-rehab cardio, pulmonary and diabetic fitness candidates. You can choose to use these new programs or just continue with what you are already used to.

We intend to keep all current pieces of equipment available for use to the members, though in a more condensed and efficient layout fro the building. You will be able to use most cardio, silver and gold equipment. Please note the classroom will no longer be available as we are redesigning this space for maximum effectiveness.

WHAT WILL CLASSICS MEDICAL FITNESS HOURS BE?

Supervised hours include the following:

First visit orientations, Quarterly fitness and Musculoskeletal screens (included in membership). Questions about your fitness experience can be fielded in three ways if you are a member. You can email questions to membership@classicsfitness.com. You can ask questions during quarterly reviews or through clinical appointments.

All gym hours are unsupervised as below:

Monday, Wednesday, Friday – 5:00 am to 8:00 am and again from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm

Tuesday , Thursday – 5:00 am to 8:00 am and again from 1:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Saturday – 7:00 am to 5:00 pm.

HOW MUCH ARE THE MEMBERSHIP FEES OF CLASSICS MEDICAL FITNESS?

The cost of membership will be $39/month for each accepted member of the new Classics Medical Fitness. There will no longer be family, couple, or business related rates offered due to the limited number of memberships we can properly give service to.

The monthly membership fee for Classics Medical Fitness has been determined with an incredible amount of thought and consideration to all those involved. We found that for the exclusive services we offer through technology, equipment, limited members and medical oriented services, monthly fees at $39.00 were less than half that of the national average. We wanted to have a great deal for our members, but sustain it long term for the future and feel this monthly rate is an exchange in abundance for our members. We have waived the joining fee for initial members of Classics to add even more value.

We are excited that we can consistently offer this low monthly rate with the aforementioned improvements. It is imperative that membership fees be paid through an automatic monthly withdrawal from your checking account. We have diligently reviewed and confirmed current Classics Guided Fitness refunds and they are issued to you through this mail. If accepted as a member of Classics Medical Fitness, a new withdrawal account must be set up. Please note, there will be no exceptions to this payment process (AKA no credit cards or cash). We will withdraw the monthly fees from your current checking account on the 5th of each month.

An initial one year contract is required for membership unless you are coming from the Wright PT bridge program which allows 1-3 months of membership without a year contract. Account freezes or “snowbird” memberships will not be offered in Classics Medical Fitness.

CAN I SCHEDULE WITH A DOCTOR OF PHYSICAL THERAPY (DPT) IF I HAVE A PAIN RELATED OR MUSCULOSKELETAL (MSK) QUESTION WITHOUT IT BEING MY QUARTERLY REVIEW?

Yes. In addition to your quarterly review, we offer one complimentary MSK screen per quarter with a DPT if you have questions regarding pain or concerns about your exercise regimen. These screens are approximately 15 minutes and do not include treatment.

Wright Physical Therapy will have a clinic inside the facility to start your exercise program on the right foot. If you need a session with a DPT to enhance your individual program or correct faulty patterns of exercise, visits will be available at the normal clinical rates and can be scheduled. (These visits would be eligible to be processed through insurances).
