Here We Go Again...
Tier 3 Logistics
Wow, what a curveball!
Whilst we’ve been busy making the necessary arrangements for staffing and sessions over the Christmas period, and thinking we had swerved the South Hertfordshire Tier 3 lockdown earlier this week, we were surprised to hear today that we will be entering Tier 3 ourselves as of Saturday.
Thankfully for us, our gym floor element is allowed to continue operating for individual training sessions unlike in the previous lockdowns. This has certainly come as a lifeline for us, especially having managed to regain a good number of gym floor members that we originally lost in the first 2 lockdowns.
There will unfortunately be a few changes to the group exercise classes under the Tier 3 regulations, however we are so exceptionally grateful to have such a fantastic community of members and instructors who have totally embraced our new ‘Zoom’ class culture. So like yo-yo’s and the pro’s they will be ‘yo-yo-ing’ back to the online world of teaching. This time however, we will be continuing to allow 1 member into the classes. This is welcomed by the instructors whom perform at their best to ‘live’ audience.
To ensure the fairest system, we will be sorting through the times of those who had booked, and moving all but the first onto the zoom version of the class. The original booker will remain on the In-Studio version of the class. If you are one of the lucky members who managed to grab the first spot but cannot attend, we would ask that you cancel in good time to allow another member to attend. If you let us know too that would be good so we can help facilitate this too.
We also will be opening up ‘individual/household bubble’ STUDIO bookings for members who wish to come and undertake an On-Demand class using our equipment and TV screen. We have an Apple Lightening Adapter and HDMI cable for your devices or you are able to use our iPad to access your ClubRight account and On-Demand content.
- So, to summarise, our gym floor will still be operating as normal in Tier 3, just like Tier 2.
- Classes will change as detailed above.
- All Personal Training and SlimFit sessions will continue also.
For full details on how we plan to implement the logistical challenges of Tier 3 are documented on our website under Tier 3 Logistics along with our Member Health Pledge. Please may we remind people to bring their Clean Indoor Trainers to change into as you enter and exit the building.
We would like to reassure you that all our decisions have been taken to protect members and our team. Thankfully, we are privileged to benefit from such a large facility that enables social distancing.
We also have Gift Vouchers available for anyone wishing to give the gift of Health this year to their nearest and dearest.
For our full Christmas Timetable & Opening Hours please see our website or social media channels. Our member community on facebook is by far the quickest way to get a comprehensive update of what’s going on at On The Limit.
Finally may we again like to THANK all the members and STAFF, INSTRUCTORS and PERSONAL TRAINERS who have supported us financially and emotionally through what has been a very difficult year. As a small independent family run business, we do not have the luxury of a large corporation and financial backing behind us, however, we are proud to have been able to survive the last 2 lockdowns. We are truly thankful to those who continued to utilise our full weekly timetable of over 30 virtual classes, PT sessions, indoor gym floor sessions, outdoor gym and hired equipment from us, each and every one of you has enabled us to continue to open our doors. It also says a lot about all the instructors and team members who have continued to work throughout the pandemic, from their homes and the studio, coming up with creative ideas to ensure members could still train with us and get their fitness fix at probably the most important time of any of our lives.
