The electrostatic sprayers are used between all group fitness classes, our fitness turf areas, and the entire facility during non-operational hours. Our Viking Pure Clean solution is used for our deep cleaning on a variety of surfaces.

AirPHX
Clean Air System – We have taken an additional step to care for your health by installing a clean air system. AirPHX eliminates odors, bacteria, viruses and other harmful organisms throughout a facility – in the air and on surface all day long. ​It generates reactive oxygen species (ROS) from ambient air. ROS eradicates pathogens at a cellular level. Such as:  Norovirus, staph, influenza, mold, rhinovirus, MRSA, and the odors they cause.

Effective treatment of one unit covers: 

  • All surfaces exposed to the air 
  • Yoga Mats 
  • Bands and Straps 
  • Flooring, including Turf 
  • Rubber surfaces 
  • Equipment 
  • Weights 
  • All ambient air in the space 

HEPA Air Purifier 
MEDICAL GRADE FILTRATION – Better than True HEPA, H13 Medical Grade HEPA filters remove over 99% of particles down to 0.1 microns. Our 5-in-1 filter system targets pollen, dust mites, pet dander, mold, bacteria, virus carriers, VOC’s, smoke, & odors. H13 HEPA is considered medical grade air filtration, the unit alone is not a medical device. 

MIOX – The Safest Water in the World
Our pools continue to be sanitized using our innovative, on-site oxidant system that uses only common salt to produce a gentle yet effective water treatment system, that provides a more pleasant experience for our swimmers without the use of chlorine or any other harsh chemicals without any compromise in effectiveness. 

SafeHandles
SafeHandles™ are shrink to fit and adhesive filmcovers that continuously reduce the growth of certainmicrobes to ensure the surface is clean and durable.

Cover it!​
SafeHandles™ are designed to cover most commontouch-points such as door handles, push plates andhand railings.​​
Keep it clean!​
SafeHandles™ work 24 hours a day, 7 days a weekto maintain an unparalleled level of clean for up to6 months.
Safe to use​
SafeHandles™ technology utilizes a slow releasesilver-based pesticide that is registered andapproved by the EPA to inhibit the growth of certainmicrobes that may affect this product.

iWave-C
iWave is an air purifying device that installs in any duct air conditioning system.  When air passes over the iWave, ions produced by the device reduce pathogens, allergens, particles, smoke and odors in the air, creating a healthy environment without producing any harmful byproducts.

iWave uses patented technology, called needle-point bi-polar ionization, to create equal amounts of positive and negative ions.  When these ions are injected into the air stream, they break down passing pollutants and gases into harmless compounds like oxygen, carbon dioxide, nitrogen and water vapor
