Gym, Swim & Studio Safety Measures

Things might look at little different and social distancing may be the ‘new normal’, but we can assure you that you will still receive a 1st class experience when coming back to our leisure centres.

We have introduced extra safety measures following UK Government and Industry guidelines to make sure your feel comfortable and confident when exercising in our centres.

Cleaning measures have been redefined and we have provided access to sanitising stations in all areas so members can wipe down the equipment after use. We have limited centre capacity to make sure social distancing is adhered to and educated our staff on our new measures to ensure we can provide a safe environment for all.

Take a look at our video to find out what to expect when coming back to our centres. 


NHS Test & trace App

We are encouraging all visitors to download the app and scan upon arrival. Although you will have already scanned your membership card, we strongly advise that you do check-in via the app as well. This will ensure you will get an instant notification should an outbreak occur at a facility you have visited.

Face Coverings

We strongly recommend that all members and visitors wear face coverings in all circulation areas of our buildings. This includes reception, corridors, spectator areas and toilets. This does not include the gym, sports halls, studios, swimming pools or outdoor spaces, though you may still choose to wear one in these areas if they wish. We will also be following the government guidance and anyone aged 11 and over must wear a face mask indoors unless participating in sporting activities.
