Shape Up Shoppe

Updated 11-25 8pm Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I am thankful for YOU!     

This week [ Remaining Holiday Schedule] 
Sold out: THANKSGIVING DAY - KRIS 8:45 1 class- Please bring mask upstairs. We will rotate 3 out at a time for ONE song to keep class extra small.
Closed Friday -Sunday   
Considering some may be celebrating with extended family for the holiday, or immediate family from other homes, let's take precautions that everyone is feeling healthy following the weekend. On July 4th holiday weekend staff was needed for emails & calls about members feeling ill,  so lets avoid that this holiday weekend. Enjoy your families and loved ones!Stay safe, and see you next week.

We will offer the appropriate amount of cardio classes, as well as extended gym use hours including 6am gym time one day a week. We will also offer extra Boxing make-up options for Boxers as our Box program is building.

We continue to be a PRIVATE CLUB for members only and will not allow the public in to tour or visit during open hours 
Gym use - please schedule or come during class 
Masks: Every day we learn more about safety measures and strengthening our immune systems. At the shoppe we are a tight knit group and sometimes we don't realize we are getting closer than 6-feet to chat.  Everyone MUST wear masks upon entering the shoppe until you are walking up the spiral stairs getting excited for class! I am proud of our strong women getting out and about and also want everyone to feel comfortable. We will limit it to one desk attendant who will also be wearing a mask.
Chat areas: I want to reiterate that chat areas are the bamboo room where chairs are spaced 6-feet apart, so stand by a chair or sit on it.  Tiki deck is a fresh air chat room :). Please don't chat by the desk or especially by the entrance/exit hallway. Keep moving. 
Locker room: Limit 3. The area is divided for distancing. Empty your lockers please for now and no more shoes on locker tops so you can get in/out quickly
Shoes: Keep your shoes by the restroom, spiral stair shelves, or cardio room shelves. Use a sharpie and put your name on them and move them to any of the 3 areas you wish. It would be good to have the morn shoes alternated with evening shoes so we are not all in the same place at one time. Any shoes without a name will be given away. Don't make a new area for shoes. Feel free to take them home if  you don't like the designated areas.
Gym Bags: When you are in the gym they go on the large rack. [When in gym distance 6 feet at all times] Do not stop to chat with someone on spinner. When you are in class they go on the shelves. THOSE ARE THE ONLY 2 CHOICES. Do NOT put belongings, beverages in the training room. 
Training Room: 3 2 person limit. Those 2 can have their belongings with them. Note- Dennis has been doing a lot of PT and if he is in that room - do not walk in and disturb him. People have been walking in to get their belongings which should not be in there. 
Signing in: The clipboard is moved to hopefully make a more efficient flow of traffic. There is disinfectant to wipe the pen between use or wrap a tissue around it or bring your own pen. We will be switching to on-line signing in starting in August. 
Floor abs: You can stay after class or come early and do floor abs on a full size mat or full size towel. After 10 minutes please exit so we can clean.
Sweat: Consider a head band that absorbs sweat, and bring a towel to put under spinners or to sit on for equipment use. 
Immune system: A compromised immune system hurts us in so many ways. Every day take a multi vitamin, zinc, and a 1000 C! Get your glucose number healthy to avoid type 2. You can accomplish this by limiting sugar, processed foods, & alcohol. Keep your weight in check by tracking calories & eliminating saturated fat. 
I sincerely hope this helps everyone feel even more comfortable and we will keep working on creating a fun, healthy environment for all.

We will ask you to sign the Screening Form upon entering, rather than the sign-in attendance sheet. We will lock the door when class begins as we will not be open to the public or to give tours. We do trust you, and we want you to feel safe. Be sure you are on time for class as the door will be locked. Enter with a mask and keep it on until going up the spiral stairs to class. Keep moving while entering and distance by 6-feet.

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”.
