What's changed?

When we reopen, your experience may look and feel a little different than usual, but as always, our team will be there to guide you through. To ensure your visit is as safe and comfortable as possible, we have:

  • Reduced equipment within gym areas to allow for social distancing
  • Relocated some fitness classes to sports hall or outdoor areas where available 
  • Limited the number of customers allowed within the facility at any one time
  • Introduced pre-booked activity sessions for all customers
  • Enhanced our cleaning regime and provided sanitising materials for members to use on equipment
  • Limited changing room access with members asked to change at home when possible
