I am sorry for the delay in getting this out members. We thought we had most of this week to make this happen. The state moved faster than we anticipated to shut gyms down. I know we are not a large gym we value you as members and the staff. In an overabundance of caution we closed Monday night at 8pm. I am realizing many of you did not get my email. I am including a lot of it here. You can find that full email here along with all future emails and the virtual schedule all long as we are still working on going virtual: https://absolutepilates.co/covid-19-updates
WL is Wellness Living so how you booked classes before is how you will book a class now as an unlimited member. I will be getting this up on Wellness Living asap. The schedule of live classes is here also as on wellness living.
If you are on Facebook please join this group. We are supporting each other in this time of uncertainty https://www.facebook.com/groups/2068399006594904
How can you help?
People have already asked and we are grateful as this is an uncertain time for all small business owners, us included. As with most independent studios across the country, everyone involved in our team, from owners to managers to instructors, will be affected by every week that we remain closed. I want to see that we make it through to the other side of this intact.
Here are my requests and suggestions:
- Reach out to your favorite AP instructor. Schedule a one-on-one personal session with them to be conducted over a video chat, or simply drop them a note of appreciation. When our online platform becomes available, subscribe and take their class! They will be paid for their participation
- Like and Follow Absolute Pilates and The Studio by Absolute Pilates on Facebook and Instagram, join our studio FB Group, and subscribe to our newsletter (opt in to studio emails). This will build our following so that when this time has passed, we will be feeling connected and stronger than ever. We will also inform you of what you need to do to subscribe to online content through these channels, and we want you to stay in the know! When we launch them, please subscribe. We can’t wait to grow our online presence and reach even more people than ever before.
- On behalf of all of us, we would ask that if at all possible, you refrain from pausing your membership during this time. We would appreciate it more than you know. We exist because of all of you, and with your support, we will continue to exist, and will remain here to support you in the future. All apparatus class passes will receive new expiration dates, with extensions equal to the amount of time we are closed. If you are on membership for Apparatus or Private classes email Allison to do a conversion to online classes so you can book. We also have other options for your for sessions so please let me know how I can help.
Please rest assured that there have been no instances of illness in the studio. This closing is a result of the urgings of our health, scientific, and government officials, and temporarily suspend all non-essential business activities until more is known and under control.
Please feel free to reach out to discuss your needs, and allow us to continue to serve you. We are here to support you the best we can, from afar!
We wish you health, happiness, and leggings for you and your loved ones.
Allison, Lauren, and Donna
