At Want Pilates, we understand that your health and safety are of utmost importance, especially during these challenging times. That's why we have implemented a range of measures to ensure that you can enjoy your Pilates practice in a safe and secure environment. Here are some of the precautions we are taking:
1. Enhanced Cleaning and Sanitization: We have increased the frequency and intensity of our cleaning protocols. Our studio is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized before and after each class, with extra attention given to high-touch surfaces such as doorknobs, handrails, and equipment. We use hospital-grade disinfectants that are effective against viruses and bacteria.
2. Social Distancing: To maintain a safe distance between clients, we have reduced class sizes and rearranged our equipment to ensure proper spacing. Our instructors are also trained to provide verbal cues and modifications, minimizing the need for physical adjustments.
3. Mask Policy: In accordance with local guidelines, we require all clients and staff to wear masks while inside the studio. Masks should cover both the nose and mouth and should be worn throughout the entire class. This helps to reduce the risk of transmission and creates a safer environment for everyone.
4. Health Screenings: Before entering the studio, we conduct health screenings for both clients and staff. This includes temperature checks and a brief questionnaire to ensure that everyone is symptom-free and has not been in contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19.
5. Hand Hygiene: We have placed hand sanitizing stations throughout the studio for easy access. Clients are encouraged to sanitize their hands upon entering and exiting the studio, as well as before and after using any equipment. Our instructors also prioritize hand hygiene and wash their hands frequently.
6. Equipment Sanitization: All Pilates equipment, including reformers, chairs, and props, are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized after each use. We use disinfectant sprays and wipes to ensure that all surfaces are free from germs and bacteria. Additionally, we have implemented a rotation system to allow for ample time between classes for proper cleaning and drying of equipment.
7. Improved Ventilation: We have taken steps to improve the ventilation in our studio by increasing fresh air circulation. Our windows are opened whenever possible, and we have installed air purifiers to filter and clean the air.
8. Online Booking and Contactless Payments: To minimize physical contact and reduce the risk of transmission, we encourage clients to book their classes online and make contactless payments. This helps to streamline the check-in process and maintain a smooth flow of clients in and out of the studio.
At Want Pilates, your safety is our top priority. We are committed to providing a clean and safe environment for you to enjoy your Pilates practice. By implementing these measures, we aim to create a space where you can focus on your health and well-being with peace of mind. We look forward to welcoming you to our studio and supporting you on your Pilates journey.
