We know that many of our members have been enjoying the combination of online classes and 1-1 appointments that have been on offer since September but we are aware that some are missing the social aspect of our in-person group classes.

If you have not attended the Centre since the original lockdown in March 2020 but would now like to do so, that’s fantastic news and we will be happy to have you back.  Because of the time that has passed, you will need to have a telephone reassessment and have signed a COVID consent form before coming in but it’s super-easy and we can help you to do so.  Please contact us on 020 8660 1181 and we will take you through the process.

COVID safety

Members can be assured that preventing the spread of COVID19 remains a priority for the charity and as well as the wiping down of all equipment and surfaces after each use, the following measures will be introduced in addition to those currently in place.

  • The Small Gym will be misted daily with disinfectant (including all mats and tables) and the Reception and Large Gym weekly.
  • Covers will be used for Pilates cushions when used and changed for each new user.
  • Couch Roll will be used for face contact with mats when lying down
  • Staff will wear masks in group classes as well as masks, gloves and aprons during 1-1 appointments.

Refreshments

Although we are still unable to offer refreshments at the Centre, a seating area will be set up outside the building for members to enjoy their own after their class.   Disinfectant spray will be made available for general use and members are asked to continue to respect social distancing requirements whilst in this area.

Thank you for your patience and ongoing support as we move into this next phase of our reopening.   Although not back to our pre COVID position quite yet, we are delighted that this new schedule takes us one step closer to being able to offer all members weekly access to physiotherapy here at the Centre with the bonus of online classes being available for those times when attendance in person is not feasible or when additional support may be required.

To book either a 1-1 appointment or group class or to speak to us about anything email us or call us on 02086601181

We look forward to hearing from you.
