Opened: May 2019
We spoke with Becca Licht, owner of barre3 Rivertowns, who shared the following information with us.
Please describe your business:
We offer fitness classes that combine strength conditioning, cardio, and mindfulness. We have both livestream and in-studio (with safety protocols) options that are suitable for all levels of experience. Class duration ranges from 30-60 minutes to accommodate different schedules.
Prior to the pandemic we offered supervised childcare on-site during our classes, and we are excited to bring that back post COVID. Bringing the community together, for learning or for social purposes, is a priority at our studio. We have hosted events ranging from book club, to fundraisers, to panel discussions on parenting, to workshops on injury prevention and intuitive eating. Our lobby was designed with community gathering in mind!
What is your favorite item(s) for Spring 2021:
The pandemic has challenged us to meet clients where they want to be working out and I’m excited to bring back an outdoor class schedule – we offered it last year and it really lit up the summer and fall! We are also thrilled to be partnering with the Panthers Family Fund to raise awareness and funds for their organization with a donation-based class on April 17.
What accommodations have you made for COVID safety:
We have upgraded our air filters, reduced our capacity to 33% (8 clients maximum in studio), we utilize approved cleaning products & protocols, and mandate mask use at every point before, during and after class. Everyone who visits our studio must complete a health screening attestation form. We also offer virtual classes.
What are you looking forward to as we start to move towards post Covid life:
I’m looking forward to feeling the energy in our studio lobby once more! I love helping clients find new connections – whether they are new to the Rivertowns or joining us along with old friends, helping people connect with fitness and community is so inspiring!
