Covid-19 Update

AMP will be re-opening on June 20th with some modifications

to protect the health of students, staff and families. 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hey everyone,

Your friendly neighborhood AMP owner here.  AMP is in a tough spot like many small businesses.  By the time we open, we will be over $20k in the hole and counting, with a lot of people not coming back either due to health concerns, financial concerns, or the usual summer drop off.  Luckily, our landlord is willing to work with us to help us get back on our feet, and our team is ALL IN on keeping AMP alive.  It is also great to hear that Covid doesn’t transfer from person to person as easily via contact with infected surfaces as initially thought.

I can’t thank everyone enough for the kind words, prompt response to our re-opening survey, and of course a huge thank you to those who continued to support the gym financially even in our closed state.  This team means the world to us!

PRECAUTIONS:

Quick Reminders:

1.  Come through the FRONT DOOR, not the garage door 

2.  Check in with someone at the front desk, or do so using the Zen Planner App (preferred)

3.  Wash hands for 20 seconds in the bathrooms in the main hallway

4.  Wait by the cubbies 6 feet apart from other members

What to Bring:

1. A mask (required by state regulations.  Other gyms have been closed for not enforcing mask rules)

Big Thanks:

Lastly, a big thanks to everyone who has supported the gym in these tough times.  Small businesses took a beating, but we're still standing (barely).  Multiple members, including the Down Syndrome Foundation of CT have continued to support us, and we've received multiple donations that have certainly been the lifeline that has kept us afloat.  Additionally, the AMP staff came together yesterday to clean, organize, and mark the facility to keep everyone safe and got so much work done.  I cannot thank them enough!  We hope you'll join us when you feel safe!  See you at the gym!

-Scott and Team AMP

How can you help?

 

AMP is struggling, and we aren’t afraid to admit it.  Here are a number of ways you can contribute.  

  1. Donations. Anyone who is willing to donate to the gym is encouraged to.  We were going to start a GoFundMe, but they take a decent percentage of the money, and we need every cent we can get.  If you are willing to donate, you can do so via Paypal (amparkour@gmail.com), check, card or cash.  Feel free to email is you have any questions (scott@amparkour.com)

  2. Buy merchandise.  We will be putting together new designs and creating a large order.  Please join us in picking up all the cool gear, and proudly wearing it in class and out. If there are any businesses who would like to support AMP and get a write off, you can also advertise on our upcoming Save AMP Shirt.  Please email for details. 

  3. Picture Day!  For any parents interested in getting awesome pictures or video of their children in action, sign up for picture day!  More info coming!

  4. Write a review for AMP at Facebook.com/amparkour, on Google Maps by googling “Adaptive Movement Parkour”, on Yelp, or on Groupon if that’s how you found us.  Every positive review helps people know that AMP is the place to be!

  5. Share our social media!  As we get closer to opening, we will be posting more on Facebook (facebook.com/amparkour) and Instagram (@connecticutparkour).  Every share is a chance for a potential customer.  

  6. Send us a video of you or your child describing why they love AMParkour.  We will be compiling these and posting them on social media, as well as in a larger video in hopes of getting a corporate sponsor and private donations.
