After the Governor’s announcement yesterday, we have decided to close our doors for two weeks, until April 1st. We will be closing today, March 17th after the 5:30 pm classes. Ideally at that time we will be able to open again and hold classes in our beautiful space. As the situation is fluid, we will keep communicating with you as the days go on about our plans to reopen.
We want to prove to you that your membership still has value during this time, and we want to keep our community thriving even when we can’t be together in the same room. Here are the ways we will continue to serve you while we are closed:
We will be offering live classes via Zoom at 6 am and 5 pm on the weekdays, and 10 am on weekends. I will send information this afternoon to our members about how to access those zoom links and what to expect during an online class. If weather permits, we will hold some of these classes outside. Classes will start tomorrow morning, Wednesday March 18th and all information will come in a second email this afternoon.
Borrow our Stuff
All of our programming will be modifiable to be done without equipment. However, we encourage you to come to the gym and borrow one of our kettlebells or dumbbells to use for online classes. Please only borrow one, and make sure you check in with a coach on your way out who can track it for you. If you are able to buy one for yourself, choose a weight that you could put over your head for several reps of a movement.
Personal Check-Ins & Programming
We will be reaching out to you during this time to support your fitness and nutrition goals from home in any way possible. If you have other gym equipment in your house, let us know and we will provide personalized programming to suit you.
No Dropped Members
If you lose your job or income due to closings and need to stop paying membership as a result, we will continue to serve you as a member until you are able to pay again. Now is the time to keep our community together and help all of you maintain mental and physical wellbeing. If this applies to you, please reach out.
Free Month for Everyone
The fact that you are sticking by us during this time means the world to us. As a thank you for sticking by us and to make up for the loss of in-person time, we will add a free month to the end of everyone’s current contract. There are two ways you can use it:
- Use it yourself, when it is time to renew you will have a month added free
- Give it as a gift. Know someone who could use the community during this difficult time? Let us know and we will give them access to our online classes now so they can workout with us from home.
Thank you all so much for being with us in this and we look forward to continuing to work together in the online classes! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out. Remember, I will be emailing you this afternoon with instructions on how to access our online classes, so keep your eyes peeled and we hope to see you online tomorrow at 6 am!
