The Evolve Standard

Evolve MMA’s #1 priority is the health and safety of the Evolve community. As such, we have implemented several new precautionary measures and procedures to maintain a safe environment for the Evolve community.

Over the past two months, we established a task force who have been working tirelessly on upgrading our cleanliness and safety standard. The additional measures put in place build upon Evolve’s already recognized high standards of safety and cleanliness – and take them to the highest level.

 

Safe Entry 

  • Every person who enters an Evolve MMA facility is required to:
    • Disinfect his/her shoes by stepping on the self-disinfecting sanitizing mat.
    • Register via the Singapore Government’s SafeEntry system.
    • Have his/her temperature taken.
      • Anyone with a temperature of 37.5° C or higher or with visible signs of illness, such as a runny nose or a cough, will not be permitted in the facility.
    • Complete a health and travel declaration form.
      • Anyone who has traveled outside of Singapore, or has family members who have traveled outside of Singapore, in the past 14 days is required to take a 14-day leave of absence before returning to the academy.
      • Anyone who has had close contact with anyone who has been issued a leave of absence, stay at home notice, or a quarantine order is required to take a 14-day leave of absence from the date of contact with said person before returning to the academy.
    • Sanitize his/her hands.

 

Cleaning And Sanitation 

Antimicrobial Coating 

Prior to reopening, a safe, self-disinfecting antimicrobial coating was applied to all high-touch points and surfaces in Evolve MMA facilities. The coating is continually applied to all high-touch points and surfaces on a regular basis. The coating eliminates up to 99.9% of bacteria, fungi, and viruses upon contact.*

 

Cleaning

Evolve MMA has always maintained the highest standard of hygiene and cleanliness and will continue to do so, with additional hourly cleaning and sanitizing of equipment and areas across the facilities. Additional hand sanitizers have also been made available for all members and staff.

 

Disinfection Procedures

Medical-grade disinfectants effective in killing the COVID-19 virus are used for all cleaning processes. In addition to handheld sprays and wipes, state-of-the-art electrostatic sprayers are used, providing 3x more coverage in the same amount of time.

 

Cleaning After Every Class

After every class, the entire training area, including the mats, heavy bags, and equipment, are cleaned and sanitized.

 

Power HIIT Zone

In addition to Evolve MMA’s regular cleaning schedule, students are required to sanitize equipment in the Power HIIT Zone before and after use with the disinfecting wipes approved for use against COVID-19 that are provided.

 

Showers And Lockers 

All lockers are disinfected using electrostatic sprayers and shower rooms are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized. However, to reduce contact and to avoid overcrowding, we highly recommend students to shower at home.

 

Sanitizing Stations

Self-Disinfecting Shoe Sanitizing Mats

Self-disinfecting shoe sanitizing mats are placed at the entrance of all Evolve MMA facilities. Everyone who enters a facility is required to step on the mat to disinfect his/her shoes before entering.

 

Hand Sanitizers

In addition to requiring every person to sanitize his/her hands before entering an Evolve MMA facility, additional hand sanitizing stations are placed throughout the facilities to make it easy for students and staff to keep their hands clean.

 

Personal Protective Equipment

Face Coverings

Everyone is required to wear face coverings at all times while in an Evolve MMA facility, except while vigorously training and exercising. Students will be provided with a plastic bag to store their face covering while they are training. For convenience, students may also purchase reusable antimicrobial masks at Evolve MMA facility shops.

 

Gloves

Evolve MMA maintenance staff wear gloves while cleaning and disinfecting the facilities and change their gloves hourly.

 

Facility Capacity And Safe Distancing

Parents And Guardians Of The Evolve Children’s Program

We kindly request for parents and guardians of the Evolve Children’s Program to arrange quick drop-offs and pick-ups at the academy, as due to capacity restriction guidelines set by the Singapore Government, parents are not permitted to wait in the academy.

 

Flow Of Traffic

We kindly request that Evolve MMA students arrive at the facility no more than 15 minutes before their class and leave the facility as promptly as possible after class to allow others to enter.

 

Advanced Booking Required

Class Booking 

To ensure safe spacing regulations are adhered to, Evolve MMA has implemented an online booking system for all classes. Students are required to book a place in class online prior to arriving at a facility. For information on how to set up your online booking account and book classes, please visit the guide here.

 

By Appointment Only

Only students who have booked a spot in a class and people with pre-booked appointments may enter an Evolve MMA facility.

 

Temporary Closure

Water Dispensers

Water dispensers have been temporarily turned off. We urge all students to bring their own water bottles to stay hydrated before, during, and after their classes.

 

Member Lounge And Sitting Areas 

Member lounges and sitting areas are temporarily closed to prevent crowding and reduce contact.

 

Notifications

COVID-19 Notification

We kindly ask students to alert Evolve MMA staff if they test positive for COVID-19 within 14 days of their last visit to an Evolve MMA facility. We will email all potentially exposed people if there is a confirmed cased of COVID-19 at an Evolve MMA facility.
