New Studio Procedures & the Protocols
We have put in place to keep you safe!
Steps for Your Session at Surrey Pilates Studio
We want to ensure your safety during this new and confusing times.
If you want to discuss, or have suggestions feel free to let us know.
Arrive on time (goldilocks rule -not too early & not too late) If your class is @ an "even" time, (ie. 6:00) please arrive and park in the main driveway (off 72nd). If your class is @ an odd hour, (ie. 9am) You will use the upper driveway, on 150A Street, the first one on the right. We are encouraging you to leave as many of your belongings, (ie. purse, bags -coat), in your car. But only if you feel safe to do so, you can, of course, bring them in and use the belongings tray. *put on a face covering/mask on (for entering the studio).
Enter the studio - through the RED door in the garage - slip off your shoes and come on in. You will find an "empty" belongings tray in the wait area, to place all your personal belongings. (ie. coat, keys, purse, water bottle, etc). You will be directed (or if you hear the other class in the Reformer or Chair room). You can go directly into the empty/available room. (Chair or Reformer/Tower).
All equipment is placed with a 6ft. distance, please keep to the right. You can now take your face mask off.
Hand washing &/or hand sanitizer - before & after your session. (*this is the most important step in preventing the spread of germs & viruses!!)
Don’t touch your face ! -consider bringing a facecloth or hand towel to wipe your face, during your workout
Distancing - maintain 6 feet between you and your classmates -prior/post & during classes.
You will get used to dismounting the apparatus “on the right”.
You will get a NEW, fresh micro clean cloth to clean your equipment with. Should you want to clean your equipment before your session, please arrive early enough to do so. We are using the following steps to ensure proper cleaning technique:
Grab a fresh microfibre cloth & apply the alcohol to one end of the cloth & wipe the springs FIRST
Spray the soap and water solution directly onto your fresh cloth (reapply as needed)
Gently scrub the surface you are cleaning to use friction to loosen germs from surfaces so they can be removed easily
Be sure to clean ALL the hard surfaces you touched during the session
Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer, when you are done cleaning
Put your face mask back on!
Grab your belongings, and wipe the tray.
Place the used micro clean cloth in the grey bin.
Wash your hands or hand sanitizer, before leaving the studio.
Personal Protection Please wear a face mask when entering the studio. If you have forgotten yours there is a box of disposable ones on the table outside the door. You are NOT required to wear a mask while exercising.
Should you really be coming in?? - if you are sick or have been around someone that has any symptoms -stay home!
What we are doing - High traffic frequently touched areas will be cleaned & disinfected with Hospital Grade Disinfectant, (ie. door knobs, counters, faucets), throuout the day. At end of day all equipent will be thoroughly cleaned & disinfected. Your health is of the utmost importance, we will be using the PreEmpt RTU Disinfectant throughout the studio. This hospital grade disinfectant is based on accelerated hydrogen peroxide, which is environmentally & personal space friendly. Although many spaces and studios are having “clients” use various disinfectants we feel that without proper training & the time to use correctly -it is inefficient & potentially dangerous. The first step in controlling the spread of germs/viruses is cleaning, (soap & water). Please feel free to e-mail us with any questions you may have about our practices.
We are trying to create practices and protocols that will reduce the proliferation of germs - so we will be updating these procedures constantly to achieve the best practices to keep us & you healthy!
