On Monday March 29th, BC’s Provincial Health Officer (PHO) Dr. Bonnie Henry announced new restrictions on group fitness. See the order here.
These new restrictions, which went into effect at midnight, prohibit indoor group fitness. For Body & Soul clients, this means that we will be holding our Small Group Training sessions (reduced to a maximum of two participants in November) in the training platform in our covered parkade. Clients are still invited to use the locker rooms and warm-up in the studio; however, clients will be asked to walk down to the parkade to start their session. This order also affects Partner Training sessions in which the individuals are not from the same household or a part of each other’s core bubble as defined by the PHO. This order does not affect 1-on-1 Personal Training sessions.
In an effort to accommodate the group sessions being held in the parkade, we have had to block off more parking stalls. For the time being, clients may need to use street parking if insufficient spots are available in the parkade. Please note that street parking is free along Highbury Street.
Our Trainers are working incredibly hard to ensure that these changes do not significantly impact clients’ training sessions. We understand that this news may be difficult for some clients; however, we are hoping that these changes will allow for us to remain open and continue to serve you, our clients.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. On behalf of Body & Soul, we want to thank you for your continued support and loyalty.
