Member update on Lockdown 2.0 due to come into effect at Altered Images as of 10pm Wednesday 4th November 2020
Altered Images unfortunately closes temporarily on Wednesday 04.11.2020 @ 10pm
Our NEW online exercise classes will start on Thursday 05.11.2020 weekly schedule to follow soon
Gym Challenges will also be following shortly plus more great home workout ideas
We?ll share relaxation and mindfulness videos for you too
With our latest gym programme to help you optimise your immune system
Plus much, much more on staying healthy during lockdown from all our team
Let?s keep in touch with each other via Zoom, phone, social media, email, YouTube and the website and #letscomebackstronger
For those of you who are able to, please carry on supporting us if you can
Despite the best efforts of the fitness industry to demonstrate to the government that our sector has some of the very lowest transmission rates (65million gym visits UK wide since July 2020 yielding just 0.78 cases per 100,000) as well as all the research showing that exercise positively helps people maintain a strong immune system and a robust healthy mindset, the strong likelihood is that no exceptions will be made in the vote today for gym?s like us to remain open.
As many of you have experienced first-hand, by becoming a COVID Secure Gym we have created as safe an exercise environment as it is possible for us to do so by investing in your safety and our own staff?s safety too. Using the Zoono Shield every 14-days and our new deep cleaning and sanitisation protocols, we have been able to ensure that Altered Images has been as safe as it could be each and every time you have come to exercise with us.
Sadly for the next four weeks we must now close the gym to comply with the latest national lockdown and it is our mission to find new ways to reach out and to support all our wonderful members through these next 28-days, and also in the background to get the club ready to welcome you back on Thursday December 3rd 2020 at 6am.
We will continue to work hard behind the scenes to implement more of the changes to our new fresh feel for the club with plans going ahead for our new Wellness Caf? complete with al fresco seating, plus we have some great new equipment arriving for the gym areas. Work will also be starting on the sauna to make the changes we feel are necessary to ensure that this much loved part of the warm pool area can come back on line safely, to warm you up as we head into the depths of Winter.
We know how much the gym means to so many of you and how it keeps you balanced and feeling well, not just physically but mentally too. We want to do everything we can to keep you all as connected with the club during this next 4-week lockdown period. You have our commitment that we will do everything we can to keep you engaged, connected, informed and maybe even a little entertained through the various digital communication channels which we hope to master over the coming days and weeks – not to mention reaching out for a chat on the telephone for the less IT savvy of those amongst us!
We are bringing on live streamed classes (originally planned to start in January 2021!) and whilst there may be some teething problems in the next few days whilst we master the technology, we will push hard to bring you a variety of exercise content to keep you ticking over whilst we count down the days until we re-open.
As many of you will recall during the first lockdown from March to July we paused everyone?s membership payments as at that point we had little certainty when the club could re-open.
This extended period of no income has made things very challenging for us this year, however this time around we want to ask all of those of you who?re able, that they please continue to support us with their membership payments so that we can keep this club operational and viable. This also means that we in turn will also be able to support our self-employed GroupEx partners and ensure that we are in a strong position to welcome you all back in December to a better, fresher, safer COVID Secure club.
We have been truly humbled by all the gestures of solidarity and support that we?ve already received in the last 72-hours and it is a testament to what a great club we are privileged to be a part of that so many of you understand where we are at and what we mean to you and to the people of Bromsgrove that you are willing and wanting to be there with us through this second lockdown.
Please stay safe and let?s all do our very best to follow the guidelines, to be good neighbours to each other and continue to create a community conscious feeling and once again to pull together so that we all can support each other through these difficult times so that together we can come back stronger.
We will miss you guys and remember it?s only 28-days…..!
We will see you very soon and really looking forward to you coming through the doors to see the next stage of our development and for those of you who have friends who used to be members, ask them to take a fresh look at what we are doing as they just might be surprised!
