As In-studio Group Fitness Classes resume on 6 July 2020 (Monday), we want everyone to have the safest and enjoyable come-back possible! In order to do this, we ask for all group fitness class attendees to please be aware of the following additional safe management measures: 

Wearing of Masks

Masks can be taken off during class, however, attendees must wear masks at all times before and after the class. All instructors must also wear a mask at all times with the exception of when they are teaching a class. 

Limited Capacity of Studios

In compliance with the government regulations, each studio will have a limited capacity depending on the studio size, class type, and intensity - we have meticulously marked out our studios so you know where to stand.

Social Distancing

All members are to observe a safe distancing measure of 2m (for medium-intensity classes such as Yoga or Pilates) or 3m (for high-intensity classes such as Piloxing, HIIT, Bodypump and Bodycombat) at all times. 

Crowd Management

Large studios are able to accommodate multiple groups of up to 5 people per group. All class participants will be assigned a group upon entry into the studio.

Please ensure that you do not mingle with participants from other groups and that a 3m distance between groups is maintained at all times. 

Early Arrival

You are encouraged to arrive at least 15 minutes before your session. Any latecomers will be denied entry. 

Bring Your Own Towel, Mat and Water Bottle

While we continue to provide towels and mats, we highly encourage all members to bring their own towels. If you use our towels, please ensure that they are disposed of at the appropriate laundry points. 

Water dispensers will be available and members are encouraged to bring their own bottles.

Equipment

No sharing of any equipment is allowed. Please use the paper towels and disinfectant sprays available in the studios to wipe down your equipment after class. 

Increased Frequency of Cleaning

We've increased the frequency of cleaning of our space and the studios. There will also be a 20-minute buffer between all group fitness classes for proper cleaning and crowd control. 

Advance Bookings

All group fitness class spots must be booked in advance. We will not entertain walk-ins. 

Cancellation Policy

Due to the limited spots available, please respect our cancellation policy of 24 hours for group classes to give other people a chance.

A list of all the in-studio group fitness classes available from 6 July onwards can be found here.

If you're still not comfortable joining us for our in-studio classes yet, we totally understand! Along with our group fitness instructors, we're continuing to provide a variety of virtual group fitness classes that you can take part in from home until you're ready to visit us again. 

We look forward to seeing you at our studios soon!
