The winter weather is finally here and as Chief Meteorologist in the gym I feel it is my duty to guide you through the season and hopefully make it less stressful for you when it comes to the gym and classes.
I pride myself on my weather forecasts but like all REALLY good meteorologists we’re not always right. With that being said we do a good job at tracking any inclement weather and notifying you of any class/schedule changes. For the early bird (5:30am) classes we will generally make the call the night before. This is sometimes where that margin for error comes into play. What we could be calling for bad weather based on the overnight forecast may change while I’m getting my beauty sleep. But rather than chance anything we’ll usually err on the side of caution as you are all considered precious cargo to us and we don’t want anything to happen to you. All other classes will typically be cancelled up to an hour before.
So it is up to you to check for any changes or cancellations. You will not receive an automated phone call or see “KFITBODY Weymouth” listed with the school closings. So be sure to CHECK THE WEBSITE!! We will post changes on the schedule as well as the KFIT Clean Eats Facebook page. So while we will do our part to get this information out there, please do your part and take a peek before heading out the door.
Which brings me to our next topic, getting to the gym on time. Please allow yourself extra time to get to the gym. We’re all in the same boat so the “roads were bad” or “I had to shovel out” excuses will not fly for you showing up late to class. It’s not fair to the coaches and especially to the other clients that made sure they were there on time. So keep that in mind and show up on time or penalties will be enforced 🙂
Please wear boots to the gym and change into your sneakers when you get there. We work hard to keep the gym clean and presentable and the salt and water will damage the rubber floor. I know we have a lot going on in our lives and sometimes getting out of the door can be hectic so having to remember to wear your boots and remembering your sneakers can be difficult. So I always keep and extra pair of sneakers in my car for this exact reason. Once you get into the habit of it, it should be a piece of cake. And when all else fails I’ve loaned out sneakers (and socks) before so I got you covered.
Lastly there is parking. Even on a bright sunny day in the summer parking can sometimes be an issue just based on the volume of a class. Add snow and plow wash to that mix and it can be even tighter. And I know some of you have a hard time parking when you can’t see the lines (you know who you are) but please be aware of how much space you’re taking up and how much is left for someone else to pull in. If you drive a Prius you don’t need to park like you have a Yukon.
Keeping all these things in mind should get us through the winter months smoothly and stress free!
We will always do our best to stay open while keeping our clients safety in mind. For those hopefully rare occasions that we may have to close, don’t let that be an excuse not to work out. There are plenty of great at home workouts on our blog so grab the hubby, the kids, or a neighbor and get a sweat on while snowed in. It will make those spiced hot chocolate drinks taste that much better 🙂
Hopefully we don’t get as much snow as last year. But whatever we get we will get through together! Stay warm!
