Reopening - Preventive Measures
|Hello Dear Members!
It is official; the long-awaited announcement was made on Wednesday, June 17. It is therefore with great happiness and enthusiasm that we confirm our network of 37 branches will officially reopen on Monday, June 22!
Our teams are ready to welcome you and ensure your experience is safe and simple.
Consequently, to ensure a pleasant and safe training experience for everyone, we invite you to read and respect the following instructions:
PRESENT YOURSELF AT THE TIME THAT BEST SUITS YOU!
The occupancy capacity of the centers will be revised downwards in order to respect the social distancing requirements issued by the Public Health Agency.
From now on, we ask that you scan your entry and exit (point your membership card or telephone at the optical reader) in order to make available, on our website and the mobile application, the occupancy rate, in real time, for each center. This will allow you to plan ahead and arrive when it is best suited for you.
Group classes will be available and our instructors are looking forward to welcoming you back! In order to respect the social distancing requirements, the capacity of the group exercise rooms will be limited. For this reason, and for more information regarding next week’s group class schedule, we invite you to visit our website (the schedules will be available this weekend). Free access will be offered to our classes on a first come, first serve basis.
Online consultation and coaching sessions with our kinesiologists and nutritionists are now available thanks to the new teleconference feature found on the Nautilus Plus customer monitoring software, powered by Hexfit (French only, English will be available soon).
Regarding your membership and the extension terms related to the temporary closure period, we invite you to visit the FAQ section on our website.
Finally! We are looking forward to seeing you back!
The Nautilus Plus team

We are ready and waiting for you!
Can’t wait to see you again … finally!
We will be ready to welcome you safely!
Like you, we are impatiently looking forward to reopening our centers. We are working hard to put everything in place to offer you a clean and safe environment while respecting the directives issued by the government authorities. In the government’s deconfinement plan published on May 25, gymnasiums and training rooms are among the sectors of activity included in the subsequent phases of the deconfinement plan however, an official reopening date has not been announced.
As you know, being in good health remains the best way to prevent disease and reduce our vulnerability to pandemics like the one we are currently living together. Despite these unprecedented circumstances beyond our control, we remain fully committed to the pursuit of our mission which is to actively participate in your well-being and improve your health and quality of life.
In addition to encouraging responsible behavior on the part of all members and employees, our reopening plan includes the implementation of several health measures, including:
- The installation of a sink in the training area to facilitate handwashing;
- The installation of protective plexiglass at the reception and the consultation tables;
- The spacing of the cardiovascular workout equipment to respect social distancing;
- The addition of cleaning product bottles allowing you to clean your equipment;
- Many other measures that will be announced soon which will ensure your safety while simplifying your workout experience as much as possible.
Listed below are some key elements, developed during the period of closure, which are expected to be launched shortly:
- NEW: Online consultation and coaching sessions with our kinesiologists and nutritionists thanks to the new teleconference feature found on the Nautilus Plus customer monitoring software, powered by Hexfit. The competence, enthusiasm and invaluable advice of our professionals will remain available in person, and henceforth will be accessible remotely, wherever you are! We will notify you when the new service is officially launched.
- NEW: Real-time traffic information in our centers. To ensure a secure level of traffic, our center entry and exit recording system is optimized to give you access to the occupancy rate, in real time, of our network centers. Before leaving for the gym, from now on, you can consult this useful information on the Nautilus Plus mobile app or website.
- NEW: Almost all of our paper documents, including contracts, will now be sent electronically, reducing physical contact and taking an additional initiative to protect the environment!
We are grateful for your understanding and your patience during this period of closure imposed by our government for the common good. Our teams are looking forward to welcoming you soon in our centers. Rest assured that all of our employees and your club manager will be at your disposal to ensure that your experience remains comfortable, simple and positive.

COVID-19 - Compensation for all our members
Since the closure of our branches, we would like to sincerely thank all of our members for their understanding, cooperation and patience. We are fully aware that many have questioned how Nautilus Plus would compensate for this period of closure, a duration which remains unknown.
We are pleased to announce that each member will have their contract extended for a period equivalent to that of the closure of the centers. Although the exact duration of the imposed closure remains uncertain, Nautilus Plus is committed to offering the entire time of restricted access to our facilities, at the end of your current subscription. Concretely, the suspension of the contract during the period of closure will result in an extension of the subscription to complete the period provided for in the contract. The expected payments of the contract will be perceived without interruption according to the terms of the agreement. Consequently, all members will fully benefit of the total duration of the contract.
We encourage you to please take care of yourself and your loved ones.
Nautilus Plus is looking forward to welcoming you back in our clubs healthy.
