About Franklin Health & Fitness


On Friday, May 22nd, Gov. Roy Cooper announced gyms were not included in North Carolina's Phase 2 of reopening the state. We were surprised and disappointed. However, it's the love we have for our members and our community that compels us to follow the path that our state has provided to reopen with safety at the forefront.

Please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions below where you will find quick answers about your monthly billing, our enhanced safety and cleanliness procedures, and the latest club information.

What will Memberships look like upon reopening? 

Once we can reopen the gym, we will be launching ALL-NEW membership plans! You can choose to stay on your current plan or opt for one that may be more accommodating to your needs. We are also excited to share that ALL CURRENT MEMBERS will have HYDROMASSAGE as an added perk to their membership plan at no additional cost! 


Our team members will conduct regular and thorough cleaning of all equipment, surfaces, and areas of the gym and complete deep cleanings every evening. Although we cannot eliminate all risks associated with COVID-19, we've taken several additional steps to strengthen our existing cleanliness policies and procedures to help keep you and our team members safe upon reopening the club.

Below are some of the changes you can expect from us when you return:

Each night the club will be sanitized using Electric Atomizer Sprayers and Electrostatic Sprayers.  Using these sprayers will increase the efficiency and quality of the sanitation.

Increased sanitation stations will be available throughout the gym floor for member use.

Some pieces of equipment will be temporarily marked out of use/or moved to enable social distancing between members while working out.

What type of disinfectant do we use?  What disinfectant do members use in the cleaning bottles?

For years, our primary cleaner has been NEUTRA-DIS. This disinfectant is on the EPA LIST OF APPROVED DISINFECTANTS FOR SARS-CoV-2 (the cause of COVID-19).

Do you have hand sanitizer available for Member use?

Yes, we do! You will find increased sanitation stations throughout the gym, fully stocked with disinfected spray, gym wipes and hand sanitizer.
