First I would like to say thank you for your continued support during these difficult times we are going through. I hope you are all well and healthy and staying safe as we move forward with the new year.
I am very excited to announce we are expanding!
We are now about to add another location in addition to the 2 studios, West 72nd Street and the East Village." Body Evolutions Union Square", our new location will be at 857 Broadway which is on the corner of 17th and Broadway.
This is an 1800 sq foot studio with large windows and lots of natural light overlooking Union Square Park. A prime location in Manhattan with easy accessibility from anywhere in the city.
Our opening date will be April 1st, 2021!
What this means for you.....
I have always had a dream of owning multiple studios and allowing clients to use packages for private sessions, classes, open workouts, and machine rentals purchased at any studio to be interchangeable and honored at any location. That time is now! So after April 1st, 2021, all credits will be honored at any of our 3 locations.
Many questions have been asked about when the city will allow group classes to open up. As far as we know this is still not allowed so in order to keep in compliance we are still not offering group classes. As soon as the city allows it we will for sure start scheduling classes. All old credits purchased will be honored.
In the meantime, what we will be offering is "open floor", which means you will be able to start using your old class credits to come in and use the machines with a monitor on the floor. The monitor will be a certified teacher but will not be giving group instruction, only short individual pointers and names of exercises for students to perform on their own. We are limiting the Open Floor to no more than 4 students and social distancing will be intact for safety. Previous experience will be required on how to use machines before admittance to the Open Floor Class. Depending on how many classes you have taken prior will determine admittance. We will also offer discounted private instruction to be able to get the experience as well and then be eligible.
Lastly, NYS Law has determined that all classes and private sessions for Pilates and or Gyrotonic are subject to a 4.5% sales tax. So in order to keep in compliance please be advised that as of April 1st, 2021 all purchases will be charged an additional 4.5% sales tax.
Charges for the following are exempt from both State and local sales taxes if the club is located outside of New York City. However, charges for the following are exempt from the State sales tax but are subject to the New York City local sales tax if the club qualifies as a weight control salon, health salon, gymnasium, or other establishment, and is located in New York City:
· aerobic, Pilates or other exercise classes
· fitness and wellness workshops
· personal training services
Once again I would like to thank you for all the years and continued support. I do feel things are getting better and slowly we are making it thru what has been such a hard year for us all.
I am so grateful to you all as well as my wonderful team of trainers and administration at BE for keeping the strong spirit and faith it took to make sure we stayed open.
Let's start moving again!
