WHAT’S NEXT

 

1. Online classes are here to stay. Not feeling in-studio yet? Whether it’s live-streamed from an in-studio class or from the comfort of one of our instructor’s homes, we got you covered. LIVE online classes will still be offered daily. 

 

2. Work in progress. The situation is ever-evolving. You have our commitment that SWEAT management will be constantly monitoring the situation and updating our procedures and protocols as necessary. We will be actively following the recommendations from public health agencies as well as feedback from our valued guests. 

 

3. Have an alone moment without the kids. While we love kids, we will not be offering childminding at this time until we feel that it is safe to do so and social distancing measures can effectively be put in place. We want to make sure we get the safety for adults down pat first.
