We are extremely pleased to report that 95% of attendees have said that our COVID safety measures are “Just right” and they feel comfortable & safe returning to classes with us in studio.
Felt very safe, everything was exceptionally clean.
Very impressed, I felt safe and comfortable
Hard to see how you could have done more.
I am very happy with all the measures. I feel safe and all has been thought through carefully to keep members safe.
How we will be keeping you safe in Studio:
At Chilli Pilates our first priority will always be the safety of our Members and the Chilli Team, we will therefore have to make some changes to the way our in-studio classes are delivered and introduce some new safety measures.
Last updated on: 30th November 2020
Instructors will wear either a Visor or Face Mask: Every instructor will be wearing a protective visor or face mask while teaching. We tested both options in a trial class and we found that neither option had a detrimental affect on the class experience.
Please wear a face mask in all common areas: It is not explicitly stated in the government guidelines that face masks have to be worn in gyms or fitness facilities. However we have decided to request that all visitors now wear a face mask when entering our studios. Face masks can then be removed once you arrive at your designated Reformer Bed or Personal Training / Therapy area.
Cleaning & Hygiene
NEW wipeable hand straps: The handles on every Reformer Bed have been replaced with a wipeable alternative.
Anti-bacterial fogging: Every studio will be ‘fogged’ regularly with an anti-bacterial product (STERiZAR) which destroys 99% of all germs and bacteria, and creates a residual barrier on surfaces that continues to work for at least 30 days after each application.
Cleaning between classes: All classes will be reduced to 45mins to allow time to clean and wipe down all surfaces and equipment between classes.
All air conditioning switched off: To prevent the circulation of recycled air, all AC units will be switched off. We will increase ventilation by opening doors and windows wherever possible and weather permitting.
Windows & doors will be opened regularly to circulate air: In order to circulate clean air through our studios, we will be opening windows and doors regularly. This may make some studios slightly colder than usual, so we advise you to bring some extra layers to wear while warming-up for your Pilates class.
Reduced class capacity to 8 and more space between Reformer Beds: All classes will be reduced to a maximum capacity of 8 and all Reformer Beds will be spaced further apart to create at least 1m distance between them.
No hands-on corrections: The instructors will only be giving verbal corrections in class
Changing spaces & Toilets: Although changing spaces will be closed our toilets will be available. Please arrive at the studio ready to attend class.
Waiting in studio – Please adhere to 2m social distancing:
As Autumn turns to Winter we appreciate that waiting outside our studios is not ideal. So you can now wait for your class to start inside the building, but you must adhere to 2m social distancing at all times. RECOMMENDED: Please avoid arriving at the studio more than 5 mins prior to your class start time.
Temperature taken on arrival: Before entering the studio, your instructor will take your temperature using a non-contact temperature gun. If your temperature is above 37.8* you not be permitted access to the studio.
45min classes to minimise traffic: The shortened class time will minimise the cross-over of members between each class.
Separate Entrance & Exit to studio: If possible, you will be guided to leave the studio via an alternative exit points.
