COVID-19: Accessing the club from July 25th, 2020
Our gyms are coming to the end of an enforced government closure. The health and wellbeing of our members and team come first and we cannot wait to welcome you all back. The amount of support we have received from our customers during this tough time has been overwhelming and we are so thankful for all the messages.
For July/August 2020 only we will be running temporary opening hours of Monday – Friday 7am – 7pm (Weekends Closed)
1. Gym Access
There will be some different measures to ensure your safety to aid social distancing. A booking system may be used during high usage periods; if this is needed to monitor access to the gyms, details on how to book will be found on the website or ask at reception.
2. Attending Classes
All group exercise classes are postponed until further notice to allow more floor space for members and users to train whilst maintaining social distance.
3. Temperature Checks
We will be providing temperature checks on arrival for everyone’s safety. It will be contactless and will take less than 1 second by looking at a small wall mounted device at reception. If your temperature checks out high, please don’t come in and train. Annoying, yes. But we’ve all got to look out for each other right now.
1. Reduced Capacity
There will be reduced capacity in the gym at any one time, to make sure we keep a safe space between members. Equipment has been moved around & areas have been marked out to help stick to official social distancing guidelines. A booking system may be used during high usage periods; if this is needed to monitor access to the gyms, details on how to book will be found on the website or ask at reception.
If you are looking for a quiet time to train during gym time, we suggest you come during off peak hours.
2. Hand Sanitisers
There will be numerous hand sanitiser stations throughout the club, and we’ll make sure you can’t miss them. Biodegradable disinfection wipes will also be available for wiping down your equipment, kit and anything else that takes your fancy.
3. Changing Room Facilities
There will be a reduced number of showers and toilet facilities in use to help with social distancing. To reduce any possibility of spread, towels will not be allowed on the gym floor. We encourage you to come to the gym changed where possible. Lockers will still be in use but please stick to social distancing in the changing room at all times.
4. Cardio Areas
Some cardio equipment will be out of action to allow for social distancing. These will be clearly marked.
Towels will not be available from reception.
6. Respecting Social Distancing
There will be signage and floor markings across our clubs and studios to help guide everybody on social distancing. Our friendly team will be monitoring the gym floor too, to help with any questions you may have.
7. Social Seating
We’re a social bunch but for the time being, there’ll be limited seating available in breakout areas to make it easier to stick to social distancing.
4. Shield Guards
Shield guards have been installed at reception to provide protection for all members, guests and staff.
5. Face Coverings
While not mandatory, our staff will be provided with face coverings to keep their workplace and your workout as safe as possible
We’ll be encouraging all users to go cashless payments to avoid any unnecessary physical contact. We’ll also provide contactless check in.
1. Cleaning Hours
We’ve increased our cleaning hours to make sure there’s more regular cleaning of changing rooms, gym floor and studios.
2. Gym Equipment
Gym equipment will be cleaned regularly throughout the day and we ask that every member does their bit by wiping down equipment before and after use, with the biodegradable disinfection wipes provided.
