Gyms have faced many challenges during lockdown, but one of our favourite London studios, Frame, rose to the occasion and gave us the inside scoop on what they’re doing to get you back in shape (safely!). Fortunately, there are class options to suit every comfort level of social distancing, so no more excuses for avoiding that first workout!
For those who feel safest in the comfort of their own sitting rooms, online classes have been the answer. Frame has brought their signature high energy classes home via Frame Online and the instructor-led classes offer the same intensity without any worry.
As temperatures have risen, some of us would rather chase that elusive British sunshine and enjoy the in-person experience while sweating it out. Frame has launched an outdoor studio at Coal Drops Yard in Kings Cross, allowing a socially distant workout worthy of Instagram. Keep your eyes out for a special Phizz workout popping up later this month!
And for those of you ready to head back into the studio? Classes have resumed with a new normal designed to keep you safe while still getting those endorphins flowing. What do those precautions look like? For Frame, it’s all about planning. Here’s a peek at what you can expect:
- Book ahead! Classes are smaller to allow for social distancing.
- Come prepared. Arrive no earlier than 10 minutes and no fewer than 5 minutes before your class is due to start. It’s best to come in your kit with minimal belongings!
- You might notice some additions to the studio. Frame has added signage to aid in social distancing, touchless hand sanitisers and Perspex screens to keep the front desk experience safe.
- Please stay home if you’re feeling ill. Non-contact temperature checks will be mandatory upon arrival to the studio.
- Extra cleaning is a must! Studios have added extra time for cleaning and are using top-grade cleaning products to keep you safe.
No matter what method suits you best, it’s important to keep your body moving. To help inspire you, we’ve got some exclusive discounts on all of Frame’s class options. And don’t forget to look out for Phizz in studio! Pick up a tube after your next class to rehydrate and get a boost of vitamins and minerals.
