At AKT, the health and safety of our members and team is the top priority. We continue to offer a robust schedule of virtual classes and events for your fitness and wellness during these ever changing circumstances. We are following all state and local directives regarding reopening timeframes. In states that currently meet required guidelines for reopening, some AKT studios operate a hybrid model offering both daily livestream classes and small in-studio classes. As studios open across the country, additional 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.
Social Distancing Measures
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.
Hands Off Corrections
For your safety, our instructors 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.
If you’re taking in-studio classes, 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. Sanitized mats, weights, bands, and boxes 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. AKT Studios now offer personal equipment for purchase. Towels and water bottles are permitted.
Studio & Equipment Sanitization
Classes will be spaced 30 minutes apart to allow for staff to sanitize equipment.
