Following on from the latest update Elemental Fitness will continue to adhere to government guidelines. Subject to the progress seen on the COVID Alert System will dictate when we reopen exactly and we will continue to monitor the situation closely and ensure the return we make is done at the right time under government guidance to ensure all our staff and members are kept as safe as possible.
Some of you may have read David’s update in the May newsletter on the current position of Elemental Fitness providing insight and justification into why we have taken the steps we have so far, such as closure of the facilities, online training and the government schemes available to us. As many of you can imagine there are many factors to consider. This been said we are preparing a preliminary exit strategy, please read on for an update on our plans.
At this stage we are aiming for all personal training services to recommence from 25.07.20 and it will be arranged based on the assumption all existing personal training clients would like to continue at this time using membership fee’s paid on 28.02.20 for the month of March 2020. We will be in touch with all personal training clients week commencing 13.07.20 to arrange your sessions, however should personal training clients not want to return this soon please get in touch, we understand everyone’s personal circumstances will differ and we will continue to be flexible with all our members should we need to be.
If no contact is received, we will resume collecting your membership from 28.07.20.
Moving forwards we are aiming for group classes to recommence from 21.08.20 and it will be arranged based on the assumption all existing club members would like to continue at this time using membership fee’s paid on 28.02.20 for the month of March 2020. We will be in touch with all club members closer to the time, however should club members not want to return this soon please get in touch, we understand everyone’s personal circumstances will differ and we will continue to be flexible with our members should we need to be.
If no contact is received, we will resume collecting your membership from 28.08.20.
The delayed approach for the group classes falls in line with government advice of the reopening of some restaurants and pubs which will be introduced from 04.07.20 as these settings do generate similar challenges regarding social distancing and the higher risk of transmission.
The 27 day period between personal training services recommencing and group classes recommencing will provide staff of Elemental Fitness time to re-establish the business and introduce new safety measures. Further details on this will be available in the coming weeks.
In a addition to the above we also need to take into consideration the coronovirus job retention scheme and the allowance of employed staff returning to work whilst part furloughed which can not begin until 01.07.20.
As the government backed furlough scheme is due to be fazed out we would like to encourage all members to return to training to increase the chances of the clubs survival, but should you not wish to return this soon please get in touch to discuss. To read more about the furlough scheme click here.
Further correspondence will be issued in the coming weeks to keep all members up to date on their membership and Elemental Fitness as a whole.
Finally, our previous article on the phases we as a company are taking during this time will be updated when required.
Thank you for your continued support of the club and we look forwards to seeing you all again soon.
