Chikara is Opening Monday!

Our mission at Chikara is to educate and empower you to live the life you want. 

To do that, we provide opportunities for you to improve your health, wellness, and fitness.

With the guidelines provided by the Tokyo Government and Ministry of Health, we are confident that we can begin to do so in person once again.

Simple things, such as physical distancing, ensuring all training sessions are booked by appointment only, and having fewer than 8 athletes in our facility of 150sqm at once, are just some of the foundational guidelines our safety protocols are built upon.


Open Gym By Appointment Only

We will be reopening the gym in a limited capacity starting Monday, June 1st.  

We will have Open Gym for at least the first two weeks (at least through June 12th), Monday through Friday, from 7am - 7pm. 

There will be 1-hour appointment slots available with a 15-minute gap in between each slot. The maximum capacity for each appointment slot will be 7 people.  

All appointments need to be pre-booked at least 1 hour prior to the session through Mindbody or the Chikara website. Also, the 1-Hour Late Cancellation Fees and No Show Fees will apply.  

You may book only 1 appointment slot per day.  

We ask that you avoid entering the facility until 5 minutes prior to the start of your appointment and exit within 5 minutes from the finish time of your appointment.  

If there are no other appointments booked immediately after your appointment, then your exit time can be relaxed. 

If you borrowed equipment from Chikara, we ask that you return the equipment on your first appointment. 


Physical Distancing And Use Of The Facility

Upon arrival, you will be required to make use of the hand sanitizing stations located at the entrance of the facility.

We ask that you wear a mask while in the facility common areas and not working out.  

Changing rooms will be available for use but there will be no showers available for the first two weeks of opening. 

Also, we ask that you bring a personal water bottle and refrain from using the public water fountain.  

There will be designated workout zones marked in the gym.  A coach will show you your designated zone for the day. 

Once in your workout zone, we will review some basic guidelines that must be adhered to during your training session.

You will have access to an alcohol-based cleaner and fresh hand towels in your zone.

You will take a few minutes to clean and sanitize your workout zone with your fresh towel and an alcohol-based cleaning agent.

During the training session, coaches will remain distanced from the perimeter of the taped off zone.

We will practice safe distancing while still coaching, cueing, and assisting you through your training session.

Once finished, you will clean your area again, and dirty towels will be placed in the dirty towel bin and will be professionally washed.

Upon completion of the training session, you will have an additional 5 minutes to ask questions and book another appointment and gather your things.

Upon leaving, you will remain physically distanced until you exit the facility.

Coaches will wear masks during all in-person interactions.


Welcome Back!

Our goal is to continue to provide the opportunity for you to improve your health, wellness, and fitness.

We believe that having these guidelines in place will allow you to do so safely.

Thank you for your understanding as we transition to the new normal. 

We look forward to seeing you back at Chikara soon!
