Coppermine Racquet & Fitness, in partnership with Blue Ocean, recently completed a major renovation of their Pikesville facility. The project was expansive and included the construction of a new fitness area, locker rooms, restrooms, showers, lounge area, group fitness studio, and yoga studio. You can read the official press release here.
Like many other fitness- and sports-oriented businesses, at the onset of COVID-19 in March, Coppermine and Blue Ocean were forced to temporarily close the Pikesville location. Determined to enhance the member and guest experience in the future, the partnership moved forward with the comprehensive renovation during this period. After three months of work, the project is complete and ready to welcome its members back.
According to Coppermine’s Regional Manager Sean Rehak, the renovated facility features state-of-the-art cardio equipment not typically found in health clubs. Treadmills are equipped with Preva®, onboard software app by PreCor™ that delivers a personalized fitness experience that tracks workout duration, distance, intensity, and calorie burn. The interactive utility also allows users to log into their own web and entertainment apps, including On Demand channels featuring their own choices in music, video, comedy, news, and sports.
Alex Jacobs, Owner of Coppermine states, “We are excited about our partnership with Blue Ocean and to unveil this newly renovated facility. This Pikesville location enhances Coppermine’s ability to serve the community and bring exceptional fitness and racquets programming for all ages.”
“The facility has thorough protocols in place to help keep those using the facility safe and healthy,” says Rehak. “We do temperature checks and health screenings upon arrival and hand sanitizing stations are available at the entrances and exits,” he says. “The size of our facility makes physical distancing relatively easy. Only every other piece of equipment is available for use, so distancing happens naturally. And currently, we are offering our classes at 25–50% capacity.”
