We’re so excited to be able to reopen again and to welcome you to the studio. Due to extensive state mandates for gyms and fitness facilities, please note the following protocol that we must follow in order to abide by state mandates and to be able to stay open.
The health and safety of all Rhinebeck Pilates students and teachers is our top priority. The state mandates for gyms to reopen are lengthy and we’re subject to surprise inspections from the Board of Health. In order to reopen and remain open, a number of changes have to take place before and during all sessions that take place in the studio.
Please see below and feel free to reach out with any questions.
We have made some extensive changes in order to be able to meet state mandates for gyms to reopen. Thanks to Barbara and Dick Schreiber, the required air conditioning with UV light has been installed. We also now have a large air purifier and have purchased screens for the windows. All of these things will allow for the greatest air quality and air circulation possible.
We have also re-arranged the studio to allow for social distancing. You’ll notice that there is now more space around the area where you’ll be working out.
Important Info to Know Before Your Session
We are open for private sessions only. Private sessions are 45-50 minutes to allow for time needed to meet state mandates per appointment.
You will receive an online waiver form to fill out before you come to the studio. Please return this form before you come in.
Please note the following:
Everyone who enters the main door downstairs must wear a mask on their way upstairs, on the landing, when entering the studio, and during their entire time within the studio. We strongly suggest paper masks for your workout, as cloth can become uncomfortable.
At the Start of Your Appointment
At the start of your appointment, your teacher will open the studio door to take your forehead temperature and ask you a few required health questions before you can enter. Questions such as, are you exhibiting symptoms of Covid, have you traveled recently, and have you been exposed to a Covid-positive person, will be asked at the start of every appointment. Your temperature will also be taken with a touchless thermometer.
If you’re not feeling well, exhibiting any signs of Covid before your appointment, or if you’ve recently been exposed to a Covid-positive person, please contact the studio to cancel your appointment.
If you exhibit a temperature upon arrival, or if there are any issues with answers in the daily health assessment, your session will not be able to take place.
If you have traveled recently to a state with high numbers of community spread, it’s important that you notify the studio within 24 hours of your appointment to cancel.
