What else we’re doing

Spaced out

We’re being creative in how we use our spaces, to provide the best customer experience in the current situation.

We’ve adapted and re-purposed studio spaces, sports halls and outdoor spaces, so we can serve larger groups of exercisers safely.

Safety first

We’ve provided our team with comprehensive Health and Safety training prior to opening, provided PPE where necessary and installed protective reception screens for everyone’s safety.

Squeaky clean

We’re increasing our cleaning regimes at the start and end of each day and in between each session.

We’ve also removed some equipment and reduced touch points wherever possible, to ensure our cleaning and sanitising regimes are as safe as possible.

And we’ve invested in professional deep cleans of all our centres, in readiness for your safe arrival!

Safety FAQs

What if I develop Covid-19 symptoms or feel unwell before or after a visit?

Should you feel unwell, test positive or develop symptoms of Covid-19 before or after a visit, please refrain from using the leisure centres and follow the latest government advice.

Can I wear a face covering when visiting?

We are closely monitoring government guidelines regarding face coverings.

In the meantime, the current guidance from the World Health Organisation is that you do not need to wear face coverings to exercise as this may reduce your ability to breathe comfortably. Sweat can make the mask wet and promote the growth of microorganisms.

We recommend you follow other preventative measures, including regularly washing your hands, using sanitising equipment and maintaining social distancing while exercising.

Can I bring a towel to my gym session or fitness class?

Yes you can bring a towel for personal use, but please use the cleansers provided to wipe down equipment.

How are you protecting your staff?

We’ll be providing staff with PPE where we have risk assessed it is appropriate to do so. We have worked closely with local trade unions to put our staff’s safety at the centre of our restart plans, and we are confident in our teams’ and customers’ safety.

How will ‘Test, Trace, Protect’ work?

We will adhere to government guidelines laid out with regards to ‘Test and Trace’. Where requested, we will provide attendance data should contact need to be made by authorised parties. We will act in accordance with all GDPR requirements.
