COVID-19 Our Services, The 4 Step Plan & The Future
By: Elemental Fitness elementalkickboxing, kickboxingleeds, covid19, update
Early indications show the 4 step plan has been successful for Elemental Fitness.
On reflection we have managed to follow our earlier plan (found here) very well. As expected step 1 resulted in the continued closure of the facilities, step 2 allowed personal training and children's group classes to return at restricted capacity as expected, and step 3 allowed us to continue with personal training and children's group classes whilst letting our adults group classes return at restricted capacity as expected.
On a whole, step 3 has given Elemental Fitness & The Elemental Kickboxing Leeds the opportunity to return and deliver all of its key services. We are still running at restricted capacity and there are social events within the Elemental Kickboxing Leeds classes that are still missing, but we're confident these will return at some point.
Regarding step 4, our most recent understanding is restrictions may gradually be released over the coming week or two, however in terms of how we will function as a business, nothing will be changed until after the next announcement around w/c 12.07.21. As previously announced it has been made clear the dates on the road map will be under regular review, and are dependent on several other factors, such as the success of the vaccine programme/s, the effectiveness against current and future variants and the avoidance of a significant surge in hospitalisations and/or deaths as a result of COVID-19.
The postponing of step 4 has resulted in continued restrictions such as the implementation of social distancing where possible and the continued usage of masks impacting the leisure and hospitality industry, in particular pubs, restaurants, nightclubs and hotels.
Taking this into considering we are organising a provisional plan of increasing our class sizes to 20, incorporating partner work such as pads drills (at all classes when appropriate) and light continuous sparring (Thursdays 6pm class only) from 01.08.21 on the basis step 4 is introduced from w/c 19.07.21.
