At STRIDE, the health and safety of our members and team is the top priority. We are following all state and local directives regarding reopening timeframes. As studios open across the country, extensive health and safety measures are being taken with new studio guidelines to provide all of our members with a safe class experience.
As this is an evolving situation, we continue to monitor this situation in real-time to ensure the proper precautions are being taken so everyone feels safe coming to class; we’re strictly following the CDC’s recommendations and adjusting operations to keep you and our team members safe and healthy.
Reduced Studio Class Size
Our studios will significantly reduce class sizes to guarantee a minimum of 6 feet of personal distance between members during class.
For your safety, our Run Coaches will coach you on your form using verbal cues and demonstration, instead of using any hands-on corrections.
‘In Good Health’ Verification
When booking in-studio classes, you will be required to affirm at time of booking, that you are in good health and have not been in contact with anyone experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 as detailed by the CDC.
Additionally, we ask you to complete a waiver to be kept on file to acknowledge your participation in the studio is welcomed as long as you are healthy and observing our new studio policies and social distancing protocols.
Our new mobile app check-in feature will allow you to check-in for a booked class utilizing your own personal device instead of the front desk kiosk. These app notifications / features will be triggered when all three of the following criteria are met:
Equipment Usage and Class Modifications
To ensure your safety, we will be limiting our equipment and staging it for you before class. Any equipment will be set-up at your designated station to be used in class, and should be left in place for our team to collect and sanitize after class. Please leave your personal equipment at home. To ensure the safety of all staff members and participants, outside equipment will not be allowed in the studio. Towels and water bottles are permitted.
Studio & Equipment Sanitization
Classes will be spaced at least 30 minutes apart to allow for staff to sanitize equipment.
Studios will adhere to all local guidelines for face coverings. Masks or face coverings will be required in all studio lobbies and common areas.
