Tissues

My husband and I have been members at OTF for over 4 and a half years. We recently moved states and switched to our new home studio. One weird thing I noticed is that there are no tissues in the studio - not even in the bathrooms. I made repeated casual requests to the SA's who responded kindly and friendly that they would let the studio manager know. Tonight at our evening class the studio manager was there checking people in and I asked if she had gotten my request to buy tissues for the studio. She responded with "I'll give you a towel." Well I don't want to blow my nose in an OTF towel. I continued with "every studio I have ever gone to has had tissues" to which she replied, "I can't remember a studio I have gone to that has had tissues." In my head I'm thinking, is this an unreasonable request . . .what am I missing here? So my informal poll - Does your studio stock itself with tissues for their members? Inquiring minds want to know.

My studio doesn’t & I don’t remember ever seeing any, now that I think about it. Would be nice to have at least in the showers! I have this weird thing where I always need to blow my nose after showering/washing my face. Bathroom tissue will have to do 🥲

Mine has them in every bathroom, shower room and even 3 boxes on the wall in the studio. I would be very sad to not have them. Many of us use them every class.

We have some in the bathroom but if they didn’t I would just buy some portable $1 ones from the store and call it a day

Yes, we have a few boxes available usually, in the bathroom, in the entry, on top of the water, and usually also at the coaches station. I feel like it's pretty common that exercise makes your nose run, that is bizarre to me that they have none.

Same here, feels like all the studios I've been to in Canada have multiple spots for tissue boxes. It seems very bizarre to have none whatsoever.

My studio has tissues 99% of the time. I noticed last week that they were completely out for a few days, but they were back today. 🤷🏽‍♀️

If there is toilet paper… there are tissues.

Every studio I’ve been to has been stocked differently. The most recent studio I’m at is probably the least stocked - they have nothing. But previous studios have had tissues, spray deodorant, hair ties, tampons/pads, etc.

Mine has everything you mentioned. Love it when I’m traveling and need a shower, and the studio has shampoo, conditioner, and body wash

I don’t love seeing people blowing their noses in the studio either but also if you know you need tissues couldn’t you just bring a few for yourself, like one of those plastic travel packs?

No tissues at my studio. I just use toilet tissue and flush them. With Covid situation, I feel people are more comfortable not seeing me blow my nose anyway!

Agreed… ours used to have them in the workout area abs front desk prior to covid. Since covid they are gone.. thinking they don’t want people blowing their nose without washing hands 🤔 I’m ok with that 😬
