Update on Outdoor Group Exercise Classes
We are continuing to work on authorized and permitted means to deliver formal outdoor group exercise classes. We have spoken to both the SLO County Parks Dept and the SLO City Parks Dept about access to park space. The answer from both entities was the same. They have suspended all group permits during the emergency order and any formal group of more than 8 persons requires a permit. As of Friday we have opened dialog with Mayor Heidi Harmon about this in order to seek some assistance. The OpenSLO campaign allowing for road closures and outdoor dining is aimed at giving the downtown restaurants a boost due to limited capacity. We are asking that our industry be considered for similar assistance to help mitigate the risks of indoor exercise and offset the limited operating capacity we will have to maintain for the foreseeable future. We hope to have some new information this week.
Many of you have asked about doing outdoor classes in our parking lot at the Marigold Center. Unfortunately, the San Luis Obispo City Noise Ordinance would not allow for this. We have had formal complaints filed against us over the last several years from residents living behind the gym when our cycle studio doors have been open during class. We try to be good neighbors and we also cannot afford any fines at this time.
We will have more updates on this topic soon but until then keep following along on Instagram (@eqclubs) and use our
