MorFIT Gym COVID-19 Response Frequently Asked Questions

During the coronavirus outbreak our priority is our people. We will continue to follow the guidance of the State of Maryland and keep our members up-to-date on possible reopening dates for MORFIT GYM.

Anticipated Reopening Date: June 20, 2020

We are happy to announce that we will be reopening the club this Saturday June 20, 2020!

Please see updated Maryland guidelines and the latest member announcement:
JUNE 17, 2020 Dear MORFIT friends, The first half of the year has been pretty unexpected for everyone. We know you are all looking forward to the day when we can safely and effectively return to a restriction free lifestyle. We fully understand how important your fitness is and are taking all precautions to reopen the facility as safely as possible this Saturday, June 20th 2020 from 9 AM - 1 PM. Because of the restrictions associated with reopening, there was much thought put into the cost to continue maintaining a high level of service. Our rent and operating expenses have remained the same throughout the closure and with new COVID restrictions in place we are required to operate with extremely limited capacity. In light of this, we have made the necessary adjustments to MORFIT pricing and service offerings. We firmly believe all returning members will benefit greatly from all of the available plans and expanded programs we now have to offer. Each one is designed to customize your experience and most importantly, give you the personalized attention to get you in excellent shape. Thank you for your support of this gym and of our community through this unusual time.

Most sincerely,

Morgan Barnes & Your MorFIT Team

New Open Gym Hours: (Additional Hours To Be Rolled Out As Capacity Limits Ease)

  • 7 AM - 12 AM / 4 PM - 8 PM

8 AM - 1 PM

New Class Schedule:Existing Member Updates:
As of May 1, 2020, we made the decision to freeze all membership accounts and personal training. No members were charged for May or June 2020 while the gym was closed due to COVID-19 restrictions. All accounts will remain frozen unless reactivated with one of our new program offerings.The former MORFIT member price point of $39.99 per month is no longer sustainable. The new cost model will allow the gym to operate through the rest of the year and pricing structure will be re-evaluated at the end of 2020 to determine if the offerings are still in line with the market and economic climate. Members With Unused Personal Training Sessions: All members with outstanding personal training sessions will be able to apply those unused sessions towards one of our new virtual, gym access, or PT offerings. Use the sign up form to indicate "Use available PT sessions" and we will be in touch to match you up with a trainer. If you would like to request a trainer, you will be able to do so at sign up. PT is not able to be refunded at this time but all package expiration dates have been extended. Members Who Paid For The Year In Advance: Any member who paid for the year 2020 in advance will have the option to apply the balance of unused time (prorated amount) to any of our current packages or receive a refund of the unused balance if you do not plan on coming back to MORFIT.
