Current Exercise Physiology Service - 27 March 2020
At REPS Movement we strive to offer the best and safest service to all clients. Based on the current Government recommendation we will be continuing our Exercise Physiology services by appointment only. Our professional body Exercise and Sport Science Australia (ESSA) has been in contact with the Department of Health to ensure guidelines and recommendations are followed.
We are implementing the following measures to maximise the safety of both the client and Exercise Physiologist:
- Restricted to appointment only attendance
- Social distancing measures of a minimum 2 meters between client and Exercise Physiologist
- Appointments have been restricted to a maximum of 30 minutes inline with Government exposure recommendations
- A minimum delay of 10 minutes between appointments to allow for thorough cleaning of the equipment used
- Frequent hand washing by the Exercise Physiologist and client before and after each appointment
- The supply of hand sanitiser
- Restriction of payment methods to pay pass only so there is no exchange of cash or use of the EFTPOS terminal
UPDATE - 23 March 2020
Monday 23 March brings a new way of living in Australia. Late last night the government requested that all gyms and indoor sports venues, amongst other places, need to close to protect the health of our community and to stop the spread of COVID-19.
It is with a great deal of sadness, but with utmost understanding and respect of our government and health professionals, that we at REPS Movement have to close our doors temporarily whilst the nation distances itself to stop the spread. Your health is our highest priority and such measures are required, however confronting and incovenient to daily life.
REPS Movement Canning Vale and East Fremantle will be closed to members, appointments and all clients as of 12 noon Monday 23 March. 24 hr gym accces will also be stopped from 12 noon 23 March.
CONTINUING EXERCISE AND EXISTING BOOKINGS
All current appointment bookings will be offered a mobile or remote session to replace their planned gym visit. You will be contacted in the next few days to discuss the best option for you to keep your appointment.
Remember we also have Mobile 'in home' exercise physiology sessions and Remote video link exercise physiology sessions available to all existing and new clients. Both are a fantastic way of continuing your exercise journey and following social distancing requirements.
MEMBERSHIPS - WHAT HAPPENS NOW?
All members are entitled to a free indivdualised home program. This can be done with or without portable equipment. Equipment such as tubes, resistance bands, fit balls etc can all be bought direct from us and we will deliver to your door.
Email Murray at email@example.com to request a home program or to purchase portable gym equipment
All 3, 6 and 12 month memberships will be put on a 2 month supsension to hopefully allow the COVID-19 storm to pass. All direct debit memberships will be cancelled as of today - 23rd March.
We will be in touch via email, Facebook, and phone over the next few weeks and months - it is important that we all try to stay connected to the outside world for our physical and mental health. Watch out for our free video workouts, exercises and tips on our facebook page and website - you might even see Murray on the recieving end of some of the exercises!
RESPECT AND THANKS
In such uncertain times I, Murray, will be doing all I can to maintain REPS Movement as a exercise physiology provider so that once the dust settles we hopefully have gyms and services to provide to you. It is going to be a tough ride personally and professionally.
Please respect that this has been an incredibly hard few days and my fantastic, dediated staff will now be going through uncertain and upsetting times. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank them for all the effort and enthusiasm they have put into REPS Movement to date.
Please show your support and together we can keep hope that REPS Movement can remain part of our local communities.
Thank you all for your understanding,
