Safeguarding Measures
Extensive behind-the-scenes safeguarding measures are in place for your safety including;
– Antibacterial hand gels available at all studios to use before and after class.
– Antibacterial and antiviral disinfectants provided to spray reformers and all equipment between classes.
– Ongoing cleaning of high-contact touch points throughout the premises.
– Implementation of rigorous deep-cleaning procedures.
– Face coverings provided for all staff, although they will not be mandatory
– Face coverings for students are encouraged in all areas of the studio except when on the reformer
– Social distance floor markings.
– Upgraded ventilation system ensuring continuous flow of fresh air in the studio
– An immediate action plan and a critical incident plan is in place should a student or staff member become unwell.

Still the same Tempo classes you love
In addition to these measures, we have made some changes to our in-studio procedures to provide our students a safe and stress-free experience.
– Studio classes will have limited capacity to ensure recommended distance is maintained between each student, and there will be no hands-on corrections from trainers.
– Classes will now be 50 minutes long to allow for additional cleaning and sufficient transition time for students.
– Please turn up to your class no earlier than 5 minutes before it begins, and leave the studio promptly after class. This will assist us in maintaining social distancing in our reception area and help with queue management.
– We love socialising, but we’ve got to look out for each other right now. Chairs will be removed from our waiting areas.
– Changing room / showers and lockers will be temporarily closed.
– Please arrive ready in your kit, wooden boxes will be provided for all personal belongings which can be taken into the studio with you.
– Our washrooms will remain open.
– Please avoid walk-ins and book your classes in advance.

If you have any enquiry, please email or call the relevant studio to limit crowding at reception. This will also allow for a contact-free payment process which is encouraged now more than ever. If you experience any COVID-19 symptoms, we kindly ask that you remain at home. We are committed to your safety and we will continuously review our measures to make appropriate changes when necessary.

E8 | Reading Lane FAQ

We’ve relocated our Hackney E8 studio and thought these FAQs could be useful.
Please take a look at the below, and let us know if we can be of further help.

– When did you relocate?
We’ve relocated on the 16th of November 2018.

– Where are you?
Unit 1, Great Eastern Buildings, Reading Lane, E8.
That’s close to the Hackney Town Hall, and a stone’s throw from Hackney Central, Hackney Downs, and London Fields stations.

– Why did you move?
We listened to your feedback and found a more accessible street-level location, equipped with Air-con, electronic lockers, private toilets and the best part is, it’s quiet. Our brand new facilities feature lots of natural light and are designed by MAD Interiors.

– How is the relocation going to affect me?
Except for the location change, we aim for everything to remain the same: You will still have our great instructors and our friendly team at reception, our packages, booking system, contact details and schedule will also remain the same. The studio will still have 11 reformers, keeping our classes small and personal.

– What’s the best way to get there?
