Impact of New Weekend on Your Workout Schedule

Effective January 1st 2022, as a consequence of the directive of the UAE federal government to transition to a four-and-a-half day working week, with Friday afternoon, Saturday and Sunday forming the new weekend, we have decided to slide everything by one day.

Simply put, Sunday classes and private sessions will be moved to Monday, Monday’s to Tuesday, etc.

This change requires a time-consuming major reprogramming of our MINDBODY Online booking system and the Real Pilates App. This task is planned to start on December 24th afternoon and be completed by midnight December 25th while our studios will be closed for Christmas and there will be the least disruption and inconvenience to our members.

What does this mean for you?

  • All class bookings, private & semi-private sessions already scheduled in 2022 will be deleted;
  • Classes and private session availabilities will be re-created from scratch from Jan 2nd onwards;
  • We can only manually reinstate bookings for those classes that were already full with waitlists and those who have long-term recurring private sessions booked in the system;
  • You will need to rebook yourselves in your desired classes and/or private sessions as soon as we confirm that the system is ready (expected after 6pm on the 25th)!

We understand that this will require you to redo bookings that you have already made, we sincerely apologise for the inconvenience but this is a necessary step in order to ensure the entire system can be up and running as early as December 26th with clean and reliable records for all of 2022.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding.

Together, we will make this transition successful.

  • Sincerely,
  • Real Pilates Management
