COVID-19 Protocol for Safe Gym and Class Use
We have created this as an outline for our members to come and use our facilities whilst staying in line with the safe Government required measures for COVID-19. When arriving at the facility please ensure that you are maintaining social distancing. Please aim to arrive on-time and not too early to your scheduled Gym/Class bookings (5 minutes before would be ideal). The whole facility is clearly marked with sign posts and stickers to allow for social distancing to be maintained.
Entering and Exiting the Gym. We have implemented a one way system for gym use on entering and exiting the facility. This allows you to enter the gym safely and exit the gym through a different door to prevent any crossover. All equipment available to use will be adequately spaced and areas such as the free weight space will have markings on the floor to allow for safe use. Some machines will be out of action during your visit to allow for adequate social distancing.
Booking a session to the Gym can be done via our dedicated app – Spivi. This will allow you to book a Gym visit which will be highlighted on the app. The allocated slots for visits are 1 hour. There will be a 15 minute interval in order for our staff to clean the facility. The maximum capacity for Gym use in peak times is 30 people due to the other participants that will be in the facility taking part in classes. The maximum capacity for gym use in off peak times is 40 participants. If you are a non member you can still book a gym session via the app and pay for the session when you arrive at the facility. During off peak sessions you will be able to book double sessions if there is adequate availability however you will still be required to leave and return 15 minutes later whilst the staff clean the kit thoroughly.
We have multiple dedicated sanitising stations around the facility and on touch points. Gym users will be allocated individual antibacterial spray and blue roll upon entrance to the gym which is sanitised and cleaned upon each visit. You are required to clean and sanitise the machines before and after use, before moving onto the next machine. In the class areas we have dedicated zones for each participant to work in. Each zone will be sanitised and deep cleaned before and after each session.
The reception area is protected with a clear plastic screen and all staff members will be wearing PPE to ensure safe measures are in place. The reception area will be paperless and participants are able to sign up to memberships and book into classes via our tablets which will be mounted in the area.
Toilet facilities and lockers will be available for use and members must continue to adhere to social distancing. Showers will be unavailable for the time being and members are encouraged to come to the gym in their workout clothing.
Studio 1 – Class participants will exit the studio via the side shutter door for safe exit. Studio 2 – Class participants will exit via the side door allocated. In Studio 2 all indoor cycling bikes will be spaced out to allow for social distancing and each bike will be allocated a sanitiser and blue roll to be used before and after use. The studio will be deep cleaned in between each session. Class numbers have been reduced to 12 in both studios to allow for a safe training environment. Boxfit and Bagblast classes have been taken off the timetable as we do not deem them to be safe at this time.
This area has been marked to allow for social distancing. There will be no seating in this area for the time being, this area will just be used to allow for people to queue if needed before entering the gym. We encourage you to arrive on time for your booking and you will not be allowed to arrive early and wait at the facility.
Please do not bring towels into the facility they will not be allowed in the Gym or class studios. Gloves and face masks are to be used at all times for general first aid. Personal Training sessions can continue with social distancing in place. If you are feeling unwell and are showing symptoms of COVID-19 including high temperatures, please do not come to the facility and cancel your booking via the app. Our water fountains will be turned off, please bring your own drinks. Bottled beverages can be purchased from the cafe.
If you have been tested positive with COVID-19 you must contact the gym as soon as possible and let us know on 01209697270.
Thank you for your continuous support during these restricted times. We do hope to be running back to normal as soon as we can. Thanks for your patience.
