  • please take off your outside shoes when you walk in  - consider keeping your workout shoes at the shoppe

  • please list your birthday on the birthday poster so we can "celebrate" in class
  • please pay your dues on time which is on the 1st, or better yet pay off your membership & save us accounting fees

Memberships are sold by class times and by mornings OR evenings so that we can be contained to familiar, consistent groups so that all of you, and the shoppe, stays as safe as possible. This could avoid or contain any situation to prevent the ENTIRE shoppe being put in jeopardy. Registering for specific class times [as we did for 20 years] also helps anticipate class size. Choose between a 2class per week membership [specify which 2 days] or a 3class per week membership. The gym is included free with 1 complimentary training session. Venmo is our preferred payment method to avoid desk congestion and handling of paper, however we can accommodate other methods of payment when needed or requested.  Our Venmo account is ShapeUp-shoppe

Laura for all of the cleaning supplies this entire year - all of the wipes, Niner for the paper towels, Martina for many supplies and more, Jayne & Bridget for vacuums, whomever left $100 cash for the roof, all of you that sent $ to GoFundMe now at almost $5000 for the roof, whomever left the wine on my porch with the kind card saying they missed Christmas Caroling, the 4:30 cleaning crew, and the donation checks from home bound members. We have wonderful, generous members.

We are a private club for members only & doors lock when class begins. Please be on time as it is difficult to hear the phone.

Do not come to the Shoppe if you feel ill, have a fever, or are coughing. This rule has ALWAYS been in place. We will expand this to include:…and, if you have been in contact with anyone that is experiencing these issues. We will be closing between classes and disinfecting the entire Shoppe including rest-rooms, hand rails, doors, and more. We will ask you to sign the Screening Form upon entering, rather than the sign-in attendance sheet.  We do trust you, and we want you to feel safe. Enter with a mask and keep it on until getting to a spot in class. Keep moving while entering and distance by 6-feet while signing in using a clean pen or bring your own. Keep your gym bag with you and take it room to room with you when switching workout rooms.

Cardio Room

  • 8-foot distancing  provided in the Cardio Room mornings, 6-foot evenings. Stickers are placed on the floor for you to choose a spot. Do not claim a spot as your own.
  • When leaving the cardio room to use the restroom, please put your mask on
  • If you need your floor mat, wear your mask to get it and distance 6 feet 
  • Wear your mask by the shelves to retrieve gym bags and distance after class with masks on
  • Masks are NOT required while cardio [see below] but ARE allowed if you can get enough oxygen.  We do not want to put instructors at risk to deliver CPR
  • Consider a head band to collect sweat on hot days, or a towel under spinner. A allergen filter has been added to our ventilation system.
  • Follow the directions for the up/down stairways. Shoes will be divided rather than all in one place in the locker room.


  • Wear gloves if clean [your own] at all times or wipe down before and after use. We really appreciate when you wear gloves.
  • Wipe down the equipment with the disinfectant provided after use
  • Only 6 people allowed in the gym at one time and spread out with at least 6 feet of distancing and wear masks.  Spinners have been moved apart

  • Only 3 people at a time to provide 6 feet of distance - this is not a room to chat, use Bamboo room to socialize. Do NOT leave your gym bags or belongings in the training room!

Locker Room 

  • Get in, get changed, get out – 4 person limit, 5 minute limit. This is not a room to chat, use Bamboo room which is inches away to chat.

Bamboo Room

  • Only 6 people at a time – chairs are 6 feet apart and should not be moved

Department of Public Health writes:

It more difficult for the wearer to breathe due to carbon dioxide buildup, which reduces the intake of oxygen, increased breathing rates, heart rate, respiratory rates, work of breathing, and CO2 buildup potentially posing risk to sensitive populations. Wearing a mask delivers less oxygen into the body than when the person is not wearing a mask. It can lead to oxygen shortage, suffocation, respiration trouble, and heart attacks.

Oxygen loss is equivalent to 1–2 % of the total body oxygen consumption at rest, but increases during activity to 8–10 %.

In addition, Scarves, bandannas, tissues, and anything not marked N95 or better (N100, P99, P100, etc.) are not helpful.  "Surgical masks that trap small particles are designed to filter air coming out of the wearer's mouth and do not provide a good seal to prevent inhalation of small particles People with breathing problems (ironically) are discouraged from wearing a mask without getting a doctor's recommendation.  Wearing a mask may actually be harmful to some people with heart or lung disease because it can make the lungs work harder to breathe. Small children, men with beards, and those with lung disease should not wear a mask. The state also recommends using a new mask each day, "if you can”.
