Opening up and ramping it up again — slowly
Been a rough few months, hasn’t it. The news and effects of the pandemic are everywhere, from the local to the global. We’re fortunate in that Canada, for whatever missteps it may have made, seems to be handling it better than other places, judging by the numbers. It’s easy to cite clichés, but the fact is — it could be worse. As you know, we had to take the difficult decision in April, after modifying our routines, to close the studio down. It wasn’t easy on anyone — on our friends, on our trainers, or on our clients. We kept in touch with all of you as best we could, but we’ve never had any reason to think it wasn’t the right thing to do. Fast forward to August 2020. What with most people observing the precautions (masking up, social distancing, regular hand washing, etc.) and exercising regular gym etiquette and simple common sense, it’s possible that we may have turned the corner on this pandemic thing (touch wood). We’ll need to hedge our bets, of course, and watch what happens when and under what conditions the kids return to school. And of course there are things beyond our control. But for now, with a cautious optimism, we’re opening up again — slowly and carefully. We’re retaining some of the safety measures we implemented in the spring, of course. One trainer at a time, more frequent and upgraded sanitizing, and plenty of wipes and towels. To be sure, all our trainers are briefed on these new procedures. We’re also doing temperature checks and online screening, as well as maintaining 15-minute intervals between sessions. It means that the studio won’t be operating at its former capacity for some time, but naturally we’re putting the health of our trainers and their clients first. If you’re been feeling cooped up at home, if you’ve been craving exercise, if you’ve been pining for the guidance and personal attention of your favourite trainer, now’s the time to call in and book an appointment.
