Group Classes, Routine Care are Returning

19 Oct Group Classes, Routine Care are Returning

Thank you for your ongoing support and being such an important part of the SportsFit family.

As Victoria progresses out of lockdown, we are now excited to confirm from Friday 22nd October 2021, SportsFit will provide:

  • All routine care for onsite services
  • Group exercise classes

We will be contacting all our regular group exercise clients in relation to your specific class.

As mentioned in a previous blog (COVID Update 15th October), to ensure the safety and comfort of our staff, clients and community, we have updated our COVID-Safe policy for attending on-site for 1:1 sessions. You can read more on what to expect when entering the clinic by clicking the link below:

In addition to this, anyone (16 years and above) attending a group class must show proof of:

  • Being fully vaccinated with two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine

This decision again has been made due to the nature of inside group classes and ensuring the safety and comfort for staff and returning clients.

For clients that are not vaccinated or only have one dose of COVID-19 vaccine, you can still:

  • Access on-site services (including Clinical Exercise, GLA:D programs) through a 1:1 in person appointment with one of our physiotherapists. On entering the clinic, you will need to show proof of having received one vaccine, medical exemption or a negative COVID-19 test within the last 48 hours, or alternatively;
  • Attend group classes via telehealth.

We are in the process of getting Rapid Antigen Testing in the clinic which we are planning as an alternate option in the future, and will continue to review our safety policies.

What else to expect when I attend group classes?

  • The windows will be open (weather permitting) and fans on to ensure airflow;
  • Wherever possible participants and therapists will be socially distanced;
  • Masks to be worn at all times;
  • Participants are asked to please wipe down their own equipment after use;
  • Work through muscles you may not have used for a while;
  • To leave feeling far better than when you came in.

We are so excited to welcome you back into the clinic and get you back on track to be LifeFit, WorkFit and SportsFit once again. We look forward to hearing from you.
