COVID-19 Email Update 2 – 27 April 2020

Hi friends,

I sincerely hope you are keeping safe, healthy, and active! Every little bit counts 😊 I know it can be quite challenging to keep motivated during these times. The truth is that I myself have had a challenge with this. I have to keep reminding myself to not give up! Anyways.

Firstly, I wanted to assure you that if your membership is currently on hold, this will automatically continue into May.

For those of you participating in our home program, your membership will renew as normal. If, however, you don’t wish to continue into May, please let me know as soon as possible.

Secondly. As I’m sure you are aware, when things begin to open, it won’t be all at once. There are likely going to be restrictions in place that will affect how we operate for the interim. One of these restrictions, I believe, will be the size of gatherings. In order to control this, I will be launching a FreeRun app, available on Apple and Androids, in May. Amongst some of the features the app will include, will be the ability to reserve your spot in a class, which is how we will manage the sizes of the gathering in the beginning. More information will follow, including ways in which I will be mitigating the issue of full classes.

Thirdly, I will be implementing more frequent and stringent cleaning practices once we do open. What and how this will be done will be communicated closer to the time to ensure that I follow the most current guidelines put in place by the powers that be.

And lastly. As you know, I had to layoff most of the team, which is by far one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. FreeRun is what it is because of them. I assure you I have every intention of bringing them all back just as soon as its possible. However, I wanted to give you a heads up that until all restrictions regarding sizes of gatherings are removed, the classes you’re used to attending with a particular coach may be taught by a different instructor. The app I am launching will tell you which instructor is teaching the class so you will know this in advance.

As always, I’m am here to answer any questions you may have, and/or address any concerns, so don’t hesitate to contact me.

Wishing you all good health and sanity!

Lena Gallagher
