No new clients, for now

No new clients, for now

You know, I think we all hoped when the pandemic started, that the estimates about things returning to normal within 6-8 months were right.

Welp–they weren’t right, for ALL the reasons we could rattle off in a matter of seconds. Unfortunately, we all need to continue to remain vigilant and on our game with wearing masks, being aware of our social distancing and being respectful of others often differing levels of taking the pandemic seriously.

One way this has manifested in the Boulder Bodyworker world, is that I (Kate), am unable to see any new clients. Which frankly, sucks. Period. However, I feel strongly that I need to keep my husband, who has a pre-existing condition and in the vulnerable category, safe. And current clients who have already worked with me and know my circumstance, and whom I trust to be honest about their health history because of these factors are who I chose to work with for the time being.  It feels safer to me. 

I am so grateful to have so many dedicated clients and that they continue to help support me and my family. I hope this changes soon. Very soon. Until then, I am asking potential new clients to send me an email with their name and email address so that I can let them know once I open the schedule up to new clients once again.

Moving Times

As of June 1st, 2020, we have moved our office into a small, boutique personal training facility in east-central Boulder!The collaborative space is run by Future Proof Movement and we are “next-door roomies”with our good friend, Dr. Sarah Ceschin, owner of Boulder Sports Physio.

This move is exciting for the new opportunities it presents and the new location brings us closer to our friends at Boulder Rock Club, Mapleton YMCA,Boulder Running Company, and Whole Foods.

Great news for those who would like to arrive via bike, running, walking, rollerblading, etc–the Goose Creek Path runs right next to us! Don’t worry, there is plenty of parking right outside if you do chose to come by car.

We’ve taken a bunch of photos to help you get a better feel for the location and our space within[See the location page]. Please let Kate know if you have any questions or issues!

Clarity on COVID-19 and other news

We are delighted to be back seeing clients. Unfortunately at this time, given the extensive cleaning and additional gaps between clients, we are not accepting new clients.

At this point, we don’t expect this to change before July 2020. We’ve updated our rates and policies page to provide a list of what we are doing, and what the state requires of us, and you, so you know what to expect when booking an appointment.

This will help us keep each other safe!

In other news, we will be moving offices as of June 1st. We will be closing over the Memorial weekend to actually do the move, and will be communicating with our clients and friends via email and updating the web site closer to the move date.

The new location is still in central Boulder, and has plenty of parking.

As Sgt. Phil Esterhaus from Hill Street Blues would have said, “Let’s Be Careful Out There”.

Running Insight Covers Be Boulder, Go Farther talks

Running Insight has a great piece highlighting the “Be Boulder, Go Farther” Speaker series both how it got started, many of the great speakers and panels they’ve already had, as well as some ideas on what is happening now and into the future.

Boulder Bodyworker’s Kate Ripley was, as Brian mentions, part of the small team of women who came together to collectively agree and support the series. Kate has also been a speaker. If you didn’t catch-it, you can see Kate’s video session here. For future Be Boulder, Go Farther events, go here. And for Running Insights’s write-up, go here.

WFH Issues?

WFH Issues?

Has stay-at-home meant you’ve been working and sitting in an less than optimal position for long periods of time? Does your couch make an ideal desk for your laptop? Has the whole “social isolation” thing been causing you to sleep in weird positions?

Kate recorded this video as part of the “Be Boulder, Go Farther” virtual speaker series, with Go Far Shop co-owner, Kate King, and broadcast in April 2020.

Kate’s session is part talk-based and, part instructional on stretches you can do on/at your desk and how to best use a foam roller & Trigger Point MB5 foam ball.

If you could use a few simple tips to help you loosen-up, and straighten-up then hopefully some of the tips, exercises and workplace set-up advice in this video will help.
