Visalia Gyms Checks-in Members with Temperature Checks

Lifestyle Center opened on June 12, In Shape and Planet Fitness opened on June 14 with touchless check-in, social distancing and timed workouts

VISALIA – Major fitness centers opened up over the weekend just in time to lose the “COVID 19” they put on while sheltering in place without a place to workout.

The Lifestyle Center, a division of Kaweah Delta, was the first full-service gym to open on Friday, June 12, the first day fitness centers were allowed under state guidelines. The medically-based fitness and rehabilitation facility re-opened with cardio and strength equipment (spaced six feet apart throughout the facility and in the gymnasium area), along with the track, the lap pool, the warm water pool and restrooms. TLC’s phased re-opening plan, which follow guidelines from the State, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Medical Fitness Association, is listed on its web site at

“Our hope is that it won’t be long until we can safely support a full re-opening of our facility,” said Patrick Tazio, Director of The Lifestyle Center. “We know this has not been an easy time for any of us, but we hope this is a sign of good things to come.”

In order to gain entry, members will undergo temperature checks, sanitize their hands, etc. The number of COVID-19 cases per 100,000 residents in Tulare County, will determine the timeline of the center’s phase II and phase III rollout.

“We will continue to monitor these statistics and hope that we will have moved into other phases of re-opening by July 1,” Tazio said.

TLC closed its doors on March 18 in response to the Governor’s shutdown order. TLC is a division of Kaweah Delta Health Care District and a medically-based fitness and rehabilitation facility that offers a wide variety of state-of-the-art equipment, exercise rooms, and activities for all ages and abilities in a 55,000-square foot facility in Visalia.

Kaweah Delta is a publicly owned community healthcare organization that provides comprehensive health services to the greater Visalia region and Tulare County. For more information, visit
