1. Studio Cleaning
We were diligent about maintaining a clean studio before, but we have doubled down on our cleaning procedures to ensure we are complying with new guidelines. So here’s the down and dirty, we will:
- Use hospital-grade antibacterial/antiviral disinfectant spray approved for Covid-19 infection control on all hard surfaces
- Provide disinfectant spray bottles and single-use microfiber cloths in every room and at every reformer station
- Monitor cleaning process after each class to ensure clients adhere to new guidelines
- Sanitize all high traffic areas before and after each class and every one-on-one session. Examples include:
- Interior and exterior door knobs and handles
- All props and equipment used during class/session
- Kitchenette and bathroom fixtures
- Interior and exterior of each locker
2. Social Distancing
To maintain the recommended 6-feet of distance, we have reimagined our PODS schedule, arrival and departure procedures, as well as our classroom set-up.
In-studio PODS will be spaced 2-hours apart to ensure each class has left the studio before the arrival of the next class.
ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE
Please plan to arrive a few minutes early to get your temperature checked, complete your self-screening form, receive your locker assignment, and wash your hands before heading to class.
If your temperature is above 100.4 F or you are exhibiting any symptoms (even if they are allergy related) you will not be allowed to come to PODS.
Introducing Pilates Stations! We like to think of them as your very own RF base of operations. Each station consists of a reformer, mat and chair, as well as props, equipment and sanitizer located in a bin under the reformer. Each station is laid out so that clients will always be using equipment at opposite ends of the room, thereby maintaining an appropriate distance from each other.
Per recommended guidelines, you must wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth upon entering the studio and keep it on at all times.
We will be providing all props for PODS just as we did before, but they will be located in a bin under the reformer at each Pilates station and will only be touched by you for the duration of PODS. Additionally, we have replaced the existing cloth hand straps with vinyl ones to allow for proper sanitizing.
Note: If you purchased personal hand- and foot-loops for the reformers used during your one-on-one sessions, you will be allowed to bring them into the studio. If you would like a pair, they are available for purchase at the studio.
Our instructors will be required to wear masks and wash their hands upon arrival and before and after each session and one-on-one session. Tactile feedback will be decided on a case by case basis, depending on the comfort level of each instructor and client. You may request no tactile correction.
Unfortunately, some of the amenities you are used to at Reforming Foundations will be temporarily unavailable. These include: shower facilities, the infrared sauna, and water/dispenser/glasses. We will still provide towels for use during session and for equipment sanitizing after. But please remember to bring your own water bottle!
3. Contact-Free RF
- From now on instructors will check everyone into session.
- All bookings, payments, and even new client registration should be done online via our website or the RF app
- We will no longer accept cash payments
Don’t worry, if you really hate the idea of booking online, you can still give us a call, or send us a text or email. We’re always here for you.
If you have any of the following symptoms, please do not expose our team or the RF community by attempting to attend session or keep your one-on-one session.
- GI upset or diarrhea
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Chills or repeated shaking with chills
- Muscle pain
- Sore throat
- Feel feverish or a have a measured temperature >/= 100.4 F
- Loss of taste or smell
- Known close contact with a person who has had any of these symptoms
Seasonal allergies can sometimes mimic these symptoms, but we really can’t know with certainty what is an allergy symptom and what is not. Therefore, anyone exhibiting symptoms will be asked to leave and take advantage of our available videos on demand or schedule a virtual session.
Because we want everyone to err on the side of caution when feeling under the weather, if you are exhibiting any symptoms, and you are within the 24-hour cancellation window, please let us know. We will not charge you a late cancel fee. However, we do ask that you provide as much notice as possible to allow us to fill your PODS/session time.
5. When to Quarantine
Please stay home if you might have been exposed to COVID-19 With the rise in cases we are experiencing more incidences and questions around exposure. Please be assured, Reforming Foundations adheres to the CDC guidelines.
Quarantine is used to keep someone who might have been exposed to COVID-19 away from others.

- You provided care at home to someone who is sick with COVID-19
- You had direct physical contact with the person (hugged or kissed them)
- You shared eating or drinking utensils
- They sneezed, coughed, or somehow got respiratory droplets on you
Steps to take
- Stay home and monitor your health
- Stay home for 14 days after your last contact with a person who has COVID-19
- Watch for fever (100.4◦F), cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of COVID-19
- If possible, stay away from others, especially people who are at higher risk for getting very sick from COVID-19
