Beginners – If you are a beginner, you can only practice what you know — there is no instruction in open gym. You are responsible for adequately warming yourself up and working within your skill level. The instructor who runs open gym is there for safety and if the instructor feels that a student is not training safely, they will let the student know.
BYOE! Bring Your Own Equipment – Also, feel free to BYOE (bring your own equipment!) If you bring your own equipment, it is very helpful to us and will eventually let us offer more classes, as we will not have to wash and quarantine our own equipment as much.
Schedule Your Own Private Gym – If you own your own training equipment and want to train with friends, you can schedule your own “private open gym.” Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more and to schedule. Pricing depends on number of people and equipment.
Open Gym during COVID
Due to Covid related suggestions by the ACYO, our open gyms will operate differently than before. Open Gyms are now on a reservation system and only 4 people at a time can train, if they want to train with their own point. If you have a “training buddy” to share equipment with, we can have up to 8 students. If you have a training buddy you can share equipment with, register yourself and your training buddy can pay upon arrival. The only way to secure your training point is to register in advance.
Safety Procedures: All students are required to wash hands before entering, take slippers off immediately upon entering, use hand sanitizer, and remain at their equipment or on their own stretching/yoga mat during open gyms. Immediately after open gym is over, students must exit the studio so the instructor can clean and re-rig equipment for the next class.
