There will be defined areas for you to use inside the studio. You must stay in your area with your water bottle and not move around so that social distancing rules are respected at all times

Please keep customers and staff safe, and stay home until you have the all clear.
Keeping your Pole and Aerial Classes safe from Covid-19 at HYPE Fitness!
AERIAL YOGA: Each person to their own hammock and we have a special disinfectant spray for fabrics which will be used at the end of class. We also have two sets of hammocks which we are using on a rota basis for classes so no hammocks are used twice in a day.
AERIAL HOOP: We have suspended mixed aerial classes for now and switched them all to Aerial Hoop. All hoops have been untaped so they can be sanitised properly. We will allow two to a hoop but with one person on the aerial equipment for a portion of the class, whilst the other person is to the side (socially distanced) doing conditioning or flexibility work on their own mat. When the instructor signals to swap over, the hoop is thoroughly sanitised first and each person keeps to their own mat to maintain distancing and proper hygiene throughout.
POLE: As we already wipe down poles in between every use, then this will be very easy to maintain. We will allow two to a pole but with one person on the pole equipment for a portion of the class, whilst the other person is to the side (socially distanced) doing conditioning or flexibility work on their own mat. When the instructor signals to swap over, the pole is thoroughly sanitised first and each person keeps to their own mat to maintain distancing and proper hygiene throughout.
❗️ Please note that instructors have altered their lesson plans to take out their need to spot people in the class and remove physical contact. It is important that after a period of time off aerial and pole, that conditioning needs to be built back up so instructors will be encouraging people to go back to basics to build strength and flexibility. Instructors will keep a mask on them if in the event of an emergency they do need to spot for your safety, but otherwise they will be maintaining a 2m distance, and they will have their own pole or hoop to demonstrate on which participants must not use.
