Keeping Healthy in the Studio. To all of our wonderful clients! Per the guidance of Governor DeWine, we finally have a reopening date of Tuesday May 26. When the studio reopens, we will be continuing the use of Covid-19 Guidelines. Our goal is to keep everyone safe & allow all of you ready to come back to the studio, to get your workouts in without worry. We are asking everyone to use your best judgement in any situation that is questionable in reference to staying healthy while you are spending time at the studio. We know there are a lot of new guidelines right now but they are for your safety & ours. We are requiring that all clients who are returning from ANY travel to hold off returning to classes for at least 2 weeks upon their re- turn. In addition, we continue to ask (even under normal circumstances) that anyone with cold or flu-like symptoms please be diligent in removing themselves from classes in advance and not attending until healthy (don’t chance it, think of others). If you are prone to allergies & are sneezing or coughing, please don’t attend sessions as that will create anxiety for other clients. All clients will be asked to use the steps below when entering our studio. Our staff will also limit use of touch-cuing for the time being until further notice, and will take time between sessions to wash their hands for the safety of our entire community. WHEN ENTERING STUDIO: 1. Stop at the front desk to have your temperature taken. 2. Front desk will sign you in to avoid touching the pen. 3. Use the hand sanitizer at the front desk when you arrive. 4. Remain in the reception area until your instructor comes out to get you. We want clients finishing their sessions to be out of the equipment room before you enter. Maintain social distancing while you wait. 5. Socks are required for all clients. We prefer you use your own socks at this time. 6. Leave your purses & personal items in your car to prevent any possible spread of germs from the outside. We ask that the lockers not be used as they are hard to keep clean inside. Leave your phones & keys inside your shoes. 7. It is recommended that you wear a mask but it is not required. Masks will be worn by instructors. 8. We are asking that you pay by check or if you prefer using your credit card, go online to purchase your package. The least amount of touching, the better. At this time, I do not want the front desk to key in the credit card info as the studio is charged extra fees for that. 9. Classes will be 55 min for the time being to allow teachers to clean the equipment & props. We ask that when you are done with your class that you allow your instructor to clean so we know if has been done to our standards. 10. No fans will be allowed due to the fans moving the air around the studio. Use one of the neck coolers as an alternative. 11. All classes will be by preregistration only. No drop-ins. For the month of June, we will be allowing only 3 to join the Group Reformer classes keeping a reformer between each client. We will reassess adding more in July. If using MindBody is not comfortable for you, contact the front desk & they will be happy to add you to class. If you need to cancel, you must cancel the day prior to class since we are only allowing 3 per class to attend at this time. 12. An Industrial Grade Ozone Generator has been purchased which will be run daily. Since ozone is a gas, it can deodorize and sanitize the air in the studio, making sure you get a greater than 99.9% kill rate of bacteria, viruses and molds. 13. A Sterilizer UV Wand has been purchased to help sterilize & sanitize foot & hand straps which helps kill microorganisms & viruses. These are hard to launder so this increases our ability to kill any germs lurking on them. I have attached a link if you choose to purchase your own straps for the studio. You are also welcome to bring your own towels or other props you like to use if that makes you more comfortable. Balanced Body Single D-Ring Loops, Padded (Pair) $38 plus $7.29 shipping 14. For those not quite ready to return to the studio, we will continue to offer private mat sessions – 30 or 60 min. Once opening, we will no longer be offering Mat or BarreAmped classes online. 15. We will continue to use disposable paper towels for cleaning at the end of class & our cleaning solution is approved for the sanitation of Pilates equipment. Thanks so much for helping to keep everyone healthy & safe! My Pilates Studio welcomes all of you back & excited to get moving again!
