While you were away, Burbank Fitness Club made some changes to address COVID-19 – including powerful new technology that makes it safe to go back to the gym with confidence. 

So much has changed since the COVID-19 pandemic broke out – including Burbank Fitness Club! We’ve been busy making changes and renovating the gym to make it the safe and fun community gym you can count on. We’re especially excited about a new piece of technology that will keep our space clean, healthy and continually disinfected.

UV Light Air Purifiers

To protect the health and safety of our members, Burbank Fitness Club installed a brand new Fresh-Aire UV Air Treatment System, which sterilizes the air throughout the entire gym. The award-winning Fresh-Aire filtration systems combine UV-C light and activated carbon to reduce microbial contaminants and odors in the air. Whereas regular air filters only catch 35% of contaminants, Fresh-Aire systems also airborne viruses, germs, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), mold, odors and more.

How UV Light Air Purification Works

Airborne contaminants can be divided roughly into thirds: 35% particulates, 34% mold and germs, and 31% odors and VOCs. Regular filtration systems are effective against particulates like dust, but they have no effect on the other two thirds. The Fresh-Aire system installed at Burbank Fitness Club, however, is proven to safely reduce both all three forms of air contaminants – including mold, germs, VOCs and other biological contaminants.

Installed in the central air system, the air purifiers continuously remove airborne contaminants as they pass by. Germicidal UV-C light reacts with titanium dioxide-infused carbon cells to neutralize contaminants. The result is clean, odor-free air throughout the entire gym.

UV Light & COVID-19: How Fresh-Aire Makes It Safe To Go Back To The Gym

Fresh-Aire systems are tested and validated to reduce 99.999% of bacteria, viruses, mold & fungus and other microorganisms, according to freshaireuv.com. Each contaminant needs a different dose of UV-C light, and Fresh-Aires systems are made with a high enough dosage to kill 99.999%. Though Fresh-Aire systems do not yet have specific data against COVID-19, they’ve been tested and proven effective against similar pathogens – some that need an even greater dose than coronavirus, according to a specific update on COVID-19 from the manufacturer. Members can rest assured that, among other safety measures, the new Fresh-Aire systems make it more than safe to go back to the gym, so you can go back to focusing on what’s important: your workout.

Because safe fitness feels good.
