Firstly, thank you to all those who paid for April, this has helped us enourmousley, quite possibly the deciding factor on us opening again.
If you had to cancel, we understand, DO NOT feel awkward, we want to see you back on those mats even if you still cant pay, we will review it on a month to month basis.
We want you training, all of you, we are in this together and its not over when we reopen, the effects of this will create challanges for many of us for some time yet.
Many of you have asked us to keep your membership payments going regardless and this is midblowingly overwhelming, but I’m (Matt) not comfy taking money this way. Its not what you signed up for and its my job to sail the ship for the long term. Lets find out of im a worthy captain, later this year we will see.
What we do know
Beckie Stu and Dom have all been furloughed
Matt cannot recieve any assistance but its fine, he will be digging into Paula’s purse for a while
We have secured the £10,000 grant from the government, with this and the memberships we are good for all overheads until we reopen
These have proven to be far more fun than any of us imagined and extremely valuble. Not only the physical aspect which is how many elite athletes train, shadow, mental training. But the community, the camaraderie. It truly has been amazing, we have felt it too.
So they will be continuing until we reopen.
What we don’t know
When we reopen we have no way of knowing how many members will return, everyone has a new financial world to adjust to, not just us.
We are going to have to see how things play out when we reopen and how many members we have before we can make any decisions here.
So May onwards we are 100% a donation model, pay what you can for online classes, again, if you are struggling, jump in for free. We mean it.
Donations can be made two ways, bank transfer or paypal. Links dotted around the place, on this page and the livestream class page etc.
