The NEW Re-Opening Playbook

Standards to Ensure a Safe Recovery

Daxko, the parent company of Zen Planner, SugarWOD and UpLaunch recently gathered distinguished panels of medical experts and industry leaders from boutique, club, and nonprofit facilities to discuss re-opening and operating safely in the new COVID reality. Our theory was that if we continually pooled and shared best practices and ongoing learnings, we could maximize staff and member safety across the world.  We have documented the panel’s collective thinking in the Re-Opening Playbook as a service to the entire health, fitness and wellness communities.
