Infinity Pilates temporary shutdown- Federal government community restrictions
By: Kerrie Murphy | 24/03/2020
Dear clients and friends of Infinity Pilates,
These are unprecedented times that we all currently face. Despite our best efforts, and the amazing support and enthusiasm of you all to keep Infinity open, it is with heavy heart that we announce the temporary closure of the studio, effective immediately.
As you are all undoubtedly aware, the Federal government has put in place additional measures to assist in stopping the spread of this insidious disease. These measures included, amongst other things, the closing of all gyms and indoor sports activity venues. Although there was some ambiguity as to whether Pilates studios fit into that definition, Infinity made the decision to close down the studio. As the number of cases in Australia increased, like many of you, we felt it was our responsibility to do our bit to help flatten the curve.
We have since had some clarity from our industry body Pilates Alliance Australasia, who have spoken with the office of the Federal Sports Minister. They have clarified that Pilates is considered an indoor sports activity and is part of the mandated closure requirements. This reaffirms Infinity’s earlier decision to temporarily close our doors.
Your existing Pilates packages.
We are suspending the expiry of all current Pilates packages and will be available for you to use once we are able to start operating again.
We are currently exploring options for online Pilates classes. We are not quite sure what this will look like yet but are exploring the possibility of scheduling Privates, Duets and Matwork classes through the magic of the internet. To help us with planning, if you are interested in joining some of these classes, please email Kerrie at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please allow us some time to figure out how we can best deliver these sessions to keep you moving. We will send out information once we have set this up.
Keep in touch
We will be keeping in touch with all of our valued clients and friends throughout this difficult time. Keep an eye out for our emails and follow us on our social media channels, the links at the bottom of this email. In the interim, if you need to reach out with any of your health and wellbeing needs, we are here to help.
Stay well, stay safe and thank you.
On a personal note, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all for your ongoing support and commitment. Your heartfelt messages during this difficult time have been appreciated and give myself and the Infinity team, the strength and courage to see this crisis through. We only exist because of our wonderful Infinity Pilates family that you are all a part of.
We are not able to re-open our doors until the government eases the restrictions and gives everybody the all clear to get back to some level of normality. However, rest assured, Infinity will get through this and be waiting on the other side to continue to keep you moving. Stay well, keep moving and look after your health and your loved ones.
Kerrie and the Infinity Pilates team.
