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.

Re-Opening May 11th

Re-Opening May 11th

It is with cautious optimism that I write announcing our re-opening. I am really excited to get back to working with you and for life to resume a more familiar and comfortable cadence.

However, we are all aware that risks still exist and precautions must be in place to ensure safety for myself, my family, you my clients and our community. As more information comes to light from our Governor and our Health Department officials, I will be reassessing which procedures feel necessary and as always, I am open to your suggestions. My goal is to help us all to feel as comfortable as possible about this transition and know we are all in this together.

New Safety Procedures

  • No new clients until (at least) July 2020.
  • Kate will wear a manufactured, reusable mask with a P25 charcoal filter in sessions.
  • We are asking that clients wear their own masks. We will have masks available for those that do not bring their own.
  • We will ask clients to remove their shoes outside the session room
  • We will ask clients wash their hands before the session and will provide clean hand towels
  • There will be bigger gaps between sessions to allow clients cut down on clients passing in hallways, bathrooms, etc. This will allow more time to sanitize the office and table between clients.
  • When you arrive for your appointment, please stay in your car until Kate calls you to let you know it is time. Then we ask that you enter through the west-side (closest to Hwy 36) building door. Kate will be waiting for you at the office side-door to escort you.

The above is subject to change, based on communication from the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies, who are still formulating who they think we should handle re-opening. We will of course conform with all their requirements, plus implement procedures appropriate to our location.
