At Loudoun Pilates, the health and safety of our clients and Instructors are our number one priority. We will continue to offer a diverse schedule of virtual classes for your Pilates and wellness needs. We are following all state and local directives regarding reopening timeframes and procedures. As studios open across the country, extensive health and safety measures are being taken with new studio guidelines to provide everyone with a safe experience.
As this is an evolving situation, we continue to monitor this situation in real-time to ensure the proper precautions are being taken so everyone feels safe coming into the studio; we’re strictly following the CDC’s recommendations and adjusting operations to keep you and our team members safe and healthy.
We are keeping our online virtual mat classes for the foreseeable future and will be adding some in-studio virtual class options as well.
Please DO NOT come to the studio if you have a fever, cough, sore throat or any other Covid19 symptoms OR have been exposed to anyone who has been diagnosed with Covid19 for 14 day. We ask that you kindly stay home if you are experiencing any other symptoms of any illness.
For Your In-Studio Lesson:
- Please arrive at your designated lesson start time. NOT BEFORE. We will not have a waiting area available. We need all clients to exit the studio before welcoming in the next appointment in order to avoid congregation and maintain social distancing in our small entryway.
- Please come dressed for your session and use the restroom BEFORE you leave your home so we can minimize use of our facilities. This limits use for hand washing only.
- Upon entry, please remove your shoes and immediately proceed to wash your hands or use the provided hand sanitizer.
- Each client must sign our COVID policy acknowledgement form and our COVID liability form before starting your first in-studio lesson post-shutdown.
Per state and CDC recommendations, face masks will be required for both instructors and clients who opt for in-person sessions at all times. If you do not have a mask, we have some available for purchase. You may opt to wear a mask designed specifically for fitness activities such as this Zensah face mask.
We recommend grippy socks!
Studio & Equipment Sanitization
All sessions will be 50 mins long. Sessions will be spaced 10 minutes apart to allow for deep studio and equipment sanitization with EPA approved and Environmental Working Group graded A nontoxic disinfectants between each client. We also have hands-free dispensers available for use, filled with the locally produced James River Distillery WHO and FDA compliant hand sanitizer.
Social Distancing Measures
Equipment has been spread out 10 feet to keep consistent with social distancing guidelines for indoor fitness facilities.
Hands Off Corrections
For your safety, Instructors will coach you on your form using verbal cues and demonstration, instead of using any hands on corrections. Instructors are required to maintain a distance of 10 feet from all clients.
At this time we are highly encouraging credit card payments. Please email Dominique at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to arrange payment via cash or check.
We are aware that some clients are wary of working out in masks. Although we are aware that Virginia has waived its mandated indoor mask policy for fitness establishments, safety is our number one concern. Many of our clients are considered ‘high risk’ or live with someone who is ‘high risk’. LOUDOUN PILATES IS COMMITTED TO MAKING THE STUDIO A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR ALL STAFF AND CLIENTS. You may opt to wear a mask designed specifically for fitness activities such as this Zensah face mask. We will continue to offer virtual mat classes and private lessons as an alternative option if you prefer.
