COVID Statistics at KCI.
Positive COVID cases
Being exposed to someone who tests positive is a large concern for many people today. And of course there is an inherent risk of being exposed to COVID anywhere you go. But the data we have been collecting is quite interesting. Only 0.15% of the classes have had exposure to someone with COVID. 99.85% of KCI classes have been COVID free since January. To us, that is very encouraging.
KCI has had 3 COVID-positive members in classes since we re-opened in May. One in June, and two in August. Those members quarantined immediately after showing symptoms. None of their family members tested positive and no other KCI members were affected. Since reopening 35 weeks ago, KCI has had 1,262 classes, including open gym hours. Of those, 2 classes had a COVID-positive member, which is 0.15% of all KCI classes in the same timeframe.
Class Attendance Statistics
Another concern is that of the ability to socially (physically) distance from other people while working out. On top of that, the concern for CrossFit specifically is that breathing harder than usually may increase the likelihood of exposure. While the science hasn’t reported much on that topic yet, we have collected data for how many people are in each class. This data is also very encouraging.
Take a look at the Average Attendance Report for 2020. VIEW THE REPORT
- The overall YTD average is 6.25 people per class.
- Each week has 38 class times, including open gym hours.
- There are 14 class times averaging 5 people or less (rounded to the nearest whole number).
- With almost 3,000sqft of usable floor space, the math indicates that each person, on average has 480 sqft to themselves.
Although we cannot draw many conclusions, the data we collect suggests KCI is a safe environment to workout. The data shows that exposure has been extremely low and provides insight into how we are able to physically distance ourselves in a large space. It is our goal to continue to provide a safe gym space where members can attend classes, interact with the community and continue to improve health & fitness. It is also our goal to provide engaging and effective at-home programming for any KCI member.
Exercise is more important now than it ever was; it’s a key component in stress relief, weight management and helps you healthy. New studies are showing that depression, anxiety, & substance abuse have all increased in 2020 – which is decreasing overall health and wellbeing. The pandemic data has also highlighted poor cardiovascular health is one of the major risk factors for severe illness or even death as a result of contracting Covid-19. For these reasons and others, we believe our mission is more important than ever and are personally committed to your health and wellbeing.
