OUR COVID POLICIES
Our plan to keeping your heath first- getting you to your fitness and physique targets in the safest way possible
If you could have put stock in the use of the word "unprecedented" before the advent of 2020 you'd be linguistically loaded
I'd like to prefix The Armoury's response to the Pandemic with a heartfelt thanks to NHS and key workers that have put their health on the line to help during an event that has taken the globe by storm, and give my sympathies to everyone that has been directly and indirectly impacted by Covid-19.
I'd also like to give an enormous thank you to all of the Armoury Athletes continued to put their trust in us to guide their health and fitness efforts during the pandemic.
Nobody opens their own gym with the thought that one day they'll need to shut it down under (justified) government orders. However as I addressed within a quick live video to all Armoury Athletes the day gym closures were announced: they have asked us to close down the physical space we train in, they haven't taken away our ability to train
I'm honoured to be coaching such a resilient group of men and women that are able to roll with the punches and still make progress whilst locked down at home
Below you'll find our current policies and plans moving forward to always put your health first- I'll update them as more information comes out
HOW WE'RE CURRENT COACHING
To align with the government guidelines and put the safety of our clients and the country first, we are currently delivering all of our coaching sessions 100% virtually via Zoom
This included all of our 1-2-1 sessions, group sessions (over 25 sessions per week) and nutrition coaching
Alongside our effective virtual-coaching system, we've also added weekly Zoom yoga sessions on for all of our clients to help with both their mobility (a bigger issue due to sitting down a lot more in lockdown) and their general stress levels and mindfulness within a time of global hardship
Alongside the additional coaching we've updated our membership site with additional follow-along training sessions, extra recipe books and more, and increased our accountability and feedback within our exclusive Armoury Athlete Facebook group

OUR PLAN TO REOPEN
At the risk of being repetitive, the health and safety of our clients, coaches and the nation as a whole is a number one priority, so we will be following government guidelines and the latest research to a tee to ensure we're doing the very best job we can with the information available
We have a distinct advantage over larger gyms, of being an appointment-only small group and personal training studio- this makes it much easier to establish social distancing and hygiene measures that would be unavailable to larger facilities with hundreds of members.
We will be in the third step of government reopening plan, with the latest date set as "mid-July"- this going ahead we're putting the steps in place to ensure we're 100% compliant to open as soon as we're given the green light (with a hopefully prediction being before the 20th) (with the obvious caveat this is dependant upon the pandemic's progression)
Our plan for making the Studio the safest possible environment for coaching includes:
We will update these plans as more information comes out- however our primary goal is, and always will be to get you the most effective results possible, in the safest environment available
If you're interested in having a chat about having a trial session at the studio to get your momentum back post lockdown, head over to the contact page and drop us a message
(on a side note, nobody will be this close together once we reopen, it's just a nice picture!)
