Covid Updates & Info
NEW COVID UPDATE (JUNE 1st, 2021)
As per new guidance from the CDC, the state of California Health Department, and Santa Clara County Health Department, sessions with fully vaccinated members can now be held
without social distancing and with optional face masks.
Which means...starting Monday, June 7th, 2021, our normal Dark PAWN Sessions are back on!
We will also be opening our
ROOK Sessions (Boxing specific Strength & Conditioning) and
BISHOP Sessions (Boxing technique & drills) up soon.

New Covid-19 Safety Measures
A new liability waiver and health declaration must be completed online prior to your visit.Sign your Waiver here!
Verbal Symptom Screening
Upon entry to the premises, all clients will be verbally screened for symptoms of exposure to COVID-19 and may be denied entry accordingly.
A face covering must be worn at all times while indoors. This means that the mask must be worn upon entering Checkmate Boxing, during your session, and when you leave if you are indoors. A surgical face mask can be purchased ($2) if you forget yours!
In an abundance of caution, we will be holding smaller sessions to allow for greater social distancing and limited potential exposure. Sessions that contain aerobic and cardio components (Ruby and Emerald) will be limited to 4 boxers and low impact technical sessions (Sapphire) that will be limited to 6 boxers. As such...
Strict Cancellation Policy
12-hour Late Cancellations & No Shows will now be strictly enforced. Any cancellations or no shows within a 12 hour window of session start time will be charged as if you were present. Enforcing our late cancel/no show policy allows us to have an accurate head count to make it a better/safer experience and allows others to take your spot if you can't make it.
Frequent Studio Disinfection
There will be at least a 15 minute window in between each session to allow appropriate time for disinfecting all surfaces, including equipment, heavy bags, seating, high-touch areas, and floor. Because of this, scheduling will be different than before to allow us adequate time to make our gym a safe environment for you guys!
Glove & Wrap Rentals
Gloves and wraps will now only be available on a checkout basis to make 100% sure that there is no cross-contamination. As always, gloves and wraps will be available to purchase.
No Mittwork in Group Sessions
Sadly, mittwork portions will be removed from the workout to reduce contact. Personal and Private training sessions limited to groups of the same household are still allowed limited mittwork sections and partner drills.
How You Can Help Us!
Complete your COVID Waiver online BEFORE you come in.
Please, please, please come 10 minutes early. This would just make everyone's lives easier as we are now required to go through a COVID screening and make sure everyone is familiar with their designated areas and workout format before we start. Also, please come ready to workout...dressed appropriately and with wraps on. If you need help with your wraps, please come earlier so we can help you.
Wear your Face Mask
Be wearing your face mask on approach and at any time you are within 6 feet of anyone else. As much as it sucks, you are required to keep your mask on while you are inside and you are encouraged to keep them on/modify your workout accordingly for Ruby/Emerald sessions.
Minimize your Belongings
Try to only bring the things you absolutely need for your workout to maintain cleanliness.
Obey Tape and Signage
Please be mindful of all the signs/taped off sections. You are required to stay within your designated area during your workout and try to keep 6-ft between you and anyone else.
Bring a Water Bottle
Please bring your own water bottle (you can still fill it up here if you need to!) as the drinking fountain won't be available to reduce common touch surfaces.
Cash will no longer be accepted, the best way to make your purchases is online or have a card on file/hand.
