Changes at the Studio

 PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY

  • We are all responsible for understanding the latest COVID-19 Safety precautions and  Ontario Public Health Guidelines, and to act accordingly. The Ontario Government’s vaccine passport comes into effect September 22, 2021. Proof of double vaccination will be required to particpate in Groove Barre Studio classes. 

 PHYSICAL CHANGES

  • Masks are required for entry into the building. Masks are not required when working out, but they must be worn when you are not in your workout station.
  • Hand sanitizer is readily available;
  • We’ve reduced our capacity by over half, and have mapped out 10 socially distanced workout stations, plus instructor. Everyone is spaced 2 metres apart;
  • Air filtration system;
  • Installation of plexi-glass shields in between stations;
  • You will need to bring you own loop and band, as well as your own mat. (they are too difficult to disinfect). These are available for purchase with pick-up at the studio.
  • All equipment needed for each class will be laid out for you before class, and will have been disinfected;
  • Workstation floors, and all common touch areas such as barres, door knobs, and hand rails will be disinfected in between classes;
  • The change room will be open, but I’d recommend you come ready to train. Keys/phones may be brought into your workstation, or left with your shoes;
  • When entering the studio, please practice 2 metre physical distancing with your mask in place until you reach your workout station.
  • When exiting the studio, please practice 2 metre physical distancing with your mask in place until you exit the building.

  • Strict 4-hour cancellation policy will be enforced;
  • Most, if not all classes will be filmed for our studio members who choose not to visit the studio at this time.
