The health and wellbeing of our customers and staff is our top priority and the team has pulled out all the stops to create an environment where users can feel safe and confident when working out.
You will see a number of precautionary measures put in place on your next visit and we’d like to thank you in advance for your co-operation as we welcome you back to the facilities with the changes in place.
So what are we doing to keep everyone safe?
Equipment in the fitness suite and strength and conditioning spaces areas has been organised to ensure everyone can work out in a safe zone. One-way systems are in place throughout the building.
The team will be wearing face coverings when patrolling the indoor facilities, unless instructing a class. We ask that all visitors wear face coverings when entering and exiting our indoor facilities. Coverings can be removed once at your work space and commencing your session. Users can continue to wear their coverings during their workout if they prefer.
We have restricted capacities within our facilities and activities in line with government guidelines and to help maintain safe physical distancing. These will be subject to change as guidance evolves.
We have introduced a pre-booking system for all activities, including the gym, classes and swimming pool. Members will be asked to book in advance to avoid disappointment. We ask that you arrive no more than 5 minutes ahead of your time slot. Find out more about booking your session.
Hand sanitising stations
Whilst we ask that all visitors maintain excellent hand hygiene and wash their hands regularly, we have also installed additional hand sanitiser stations throughout the facilities (at entrances, exits and outside WCs).
Each station within the gym will have a cleaning pack containing anti-viral cleaning spray and paper roll for cleaning down equipment following use. There will be an increased number of cleaning stations and bins throughout the facilities.
We will continue to clean our facilities and equipment to the highest standards throughout the day, and there will be designated cleaning times between sessions in all areas. The staff will use an anti-viral cleaning spray between sessions across all facilities and an electrostatic disinfect within the gym areas on a daily basis. We ask that all visitors continue this increased level of cleaning and hygiene following their use of equipment.
