Covid 19

COVID-19 info 

Authentic Pilates Melbourne takes COVID-19 seriously and we are addressing all physical distancing and cleaning needs within the Studio. We are putting the government health department recommendations into place in an effort to ensure we are not contributing to the spread of COVID-19 while teaching clients in our Studio. Please read on for detailed information of Studio practices.

We respectfully ask you NOT attend our Studio if:

  • You have been diagnosed as suffering COVID-19;

  • You have knowingly been in contact with a diagnosed COVID-19 patient;

  • You have any of the following symptoms: fever, dry cough, tiredness or shortness of breath

If you are in doubt about any of the above, please contact your practitioner to discuss before attending your session.

Physical Distancing Measures in the Studio

  • Our Studio can safely have 14 people in total in the main Studio area with the 4m2 rule applied. We have spaced our equipment to allow for 1.5m between each client.

  • Our sessions are staggered to allow for different starting times for each class so clients are not all starting and finishing at the same time. We ask that clients arrive only 5 minutes before their session and ensure that the previous clients have vacated the Studio before entering.

  • Upon finishing their session, clients are to clean all the equipment they have used and depart the Studio immediately. Please allow for 10 minutes cleaning time after your session has finished.

Cleaning Processes in the Studio

  • All equipment is cleaned by the clients after the session with disinfectant gym wipes;

  • Our end of day cleaning is enhanced with all equipment being cleaned with detergent & water and appropriate areas then also disinfected;

  • Throughout the day, instructors will use a disinfectant spray to keep high touch surfaces sanitised;

  • Hand sanitiser is supplied for all clients to use prior to starting their session.

  • Cubicles used by clients for personal items must be wiped with a gym wipe prior to departure.

All clients must ensure they follow the Studio measures for physical distancing and cleanliness within the Studio and also:

  • Wear clean grip socks to every session

  • Bring a small towel

  • Bring a water bottle

  • Wear clean clothes
