Welcome back to KL Aerial Fitness, we are excited to see you all and have taken some steps to make sure that you our students are safe and that our instructors are safe.
Please read the below and understand and agree to these terms prior to attending any KL Aerial Fitness Class.
Upon registering I understand that I am agreeing to our terms set out below:
What KL Aerial Fitness have done and will do!
KL Aerial Fitness have worked hard putting in a process to make you and our staff as safe as possible.
The space has been deep cleaned and we will be deep cleaning the studio on a regular basis.
Social Distancing measures have been put into place. At the moment there will be no double classes, no reception, no waiting/spectator area and no storage shelves for students belongings.
Hand Sanitisers have been placed around and cleaning products will be made available.
The total number of people permitted in the building at any one time is 12 including all instructors and support staff. This has been calculated using the rule of 100sqft per person and our building is 1200sqft in size. This allows for each person to have adequate space to work in and remain 2m apart from each other.
Beginners allowed? - YES! BEGINNERS ARE WELCOME IN SPECIFIC CLASSES AS INDICATED ON OUR TIMETABLE.
Classes will be taught with each person having their own piece of equipment including the instructor.
Beginners allowed? - YES! BEGINNERS ARE WELCOME IN SPECIFIC CLASSES (SORRY NOT CHILDREN'S CLASSES) AS INDICATED ON OUR TIMETABLE. BEGINNERS WILL BE TAUGHT ON EQUIPMENT THAT IS LOWER TO THE GROUND FOR SAFETY REASONS.
Classes will be taught with each person having their own piece of equipment including the instructor. Aerial Hoops have been untaped to ensure they can be cleaned thoroughly. We have kept a couple taped just in case anyone particularly wants one and students are also allowed to bring their own hoop as well if they wish – any taped hoops used by students MUST be left for 72hrs plus to ensure the eradication of any bacteria or viruses. For using untaped hoops we recommend wearing cropped leggings that are not made of shiny fabrics and using grip aids such as Dry Hands to combat any sweaty hands (We have this for sale in the studio).
Aerial Silks & Sling
Beginners allowed? - NO- SORRY WE CURRENTLY ARE NOT ACCEPTING BEGINNERS IN THESE CLASSES FOR SAFETY REASONS.
Classes will be taught with each person having their own piece of equipment including the instructor. Aerial Silks and Slings CANNOT be cleaned with antibac products so will be machine washed after each use OR left for 72hrs plus to ensure the eradication of any bacteria or viruses. For this reason aerial silks and slings will be changed over between classes to enable fresh sets to be used for each person.
Floor based classes including Stretch and Acro
Beginners allowed? - YES! BEGINNERS ARE WELCOME IN ALL CLASSES!
Classes will be taught with each person having their own space to work in that is large enough to maintain social distancing, their own crash mat will be provided and students must bring their own stretch blocks and bands including the instructor. Care will be taken in acro classes to ensure that students travelling across the room have enough space to work with and avoid collisions and getting too close to each other. Activities such as tumbling will be limited in classes as students are unable to share crash mats or air tracks. Hand sanitiser must be used between tumbling activities where hands are making contact with the floor.
Children's Classes (Aerial & Acro)
Acro - YES! BEGINNERS WELCOME!
Aerial - NO - SORRY WE ARE CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING BEGINNERS FOR SAFETY REASONS.
This is because children require heavy physical spotting in the air at beginner level in order to keep them safe, which at present we are unable to do due to social distancing.
Strict cleaning guidelines and social distancing measures are put into place.
Sharing of equipment - Equipment is only permitted to be shared by those within the same household or social bubble. Social bubbling is defined by at least one person being from a single person or parent house hold. We cannot allow sharing of equipment under any other circumstances that do not meet with government rulings. Those who share equipment must sign a waiver confirming that they are doing so under these conditions.
We will have 2 metre squares around each piece of equipment or working space.
The instructor will NOT be able to spot you (even if you are happy to be spotted, our insurance will not cover this), if you are unable to do a move a regression or alternative will be given to you.
We will be working with track and trace system and have the required QR posters in the building to support the NHS app, so if anyone suspects they have COVID 19 you will be contacted.
What we expect our student to do?
Book online as usual in advance, if you cannot attend you MUST cancel your space.
Cancellations must be made more than 24hrs before a class if you wish to transfer to another day.
All classes will currently be PAYG in the event that we have to make any timetable adjustments or are forced to close again.
We will not be accepting new students in the following classes while restrictions are in place
- Aerial Silks
- Children's Aerial Classes
This is because these classes carry more risk or require more physical spotting to keep students safe, which we are unable to do at present.
Memberships will be reinstated as soon as we are able to relax restrictions further.
There will be no waiting room and no changing facilities – you must come to class in your training clothes.
Students must wait in cars or outside the building, maintaining social distancing and wait until the previous class has finished and all members have filed out of the studio, your instructor will then call you in.
Please only bring in to the studio essential items (keys, water bottle, phone, grip aids etc) and leave all other belongings in your car. For those who walk/use public transport please bring just a small bag.
Spectators are currently not permitted in the studio. Children must be dropped off and collected afterwards.
Please do not congregate before or after class.
When waiting outside the studio the RULE OF 6 applies meaning that groups of more than 6 should not congregate outside chatting unless you are queuing to come in or waiting for children. All those waiting outside the studio must maintain 2m social distancing.
You must wash or sanitize your hands when you enter and when you leave using the bathroom or the hand sanitizer units installed at the entrance/exit.
On arrival you will be asked to grab a cleaning bottle and a cleaning cloth. We will expect you to clean your equipment, crash mat and allocated space before and after you use this. (except silks and slings – these need to be machine washed). (ADULTS ONLY - we do not expect the children to clean)
Social distancing must be met at all times. Please respect this. Any person refusing to socially distance will be asked to leave.
The current advice states that students and instructors do not need to wear masks during class activities, if you wish to wear a mask you are of course welcome to. Any persons needing to enter the studio (visitors, parents etc) who are not partaking in a class must wear a mask unless exempt.
If you or any of your household have symptoms you MUST NOT come to class.
If you or your household are ill after attending a session you MUST inform us.
If you are shielding please do not attend class.
We understand that this is very odd but we have to keep these in place to keep everyone safe.
