Safety Updates

Group exercise classes take place in large spaces with at least six-feet of space between participants. Each participant has a marked square to stay within to help ensure proper distancing during class.

All participants in indoor classes will be required to wear face coverings while exercising. 

Group exercise classes are limited to 33 participants and all participants must sign in and out. Please do not arrive too early before class, as there is limited capacity in our lobby. 

Classes will take place without shared equipment, so if the class or session calls for it, patrons will be asked to provide their own equipment such as rollers or yoga mats.
