1. Why are the bookable sessions for the gym and pool prescribed?

Operating specific sessions enables us to ensure the facilities are cleaned repeatedly and regularly between sessions throughout the day to protect you and others from infection. This also enables us to maximise opportunity for all members in each activity.

  1. What are the maximum capacities for each facility?

In order to comply with the Government’s guidance on re-opening gyms and leisure centres the capacity of each activity area has been reduced to ensure social distancing measures are maintained.

This means that activities are currently limited as follows:

Swimming Maximum 4 bathers per double lane (total of 12)

Aqua Aerobics Maximum 12

Gym Maximum 12

Group Exercise – Activity Studio Maximum 17

Studio Cycling Maximum 6

Maximum capacities will be reviewed regularly to take into account changes in guidance.

  1. What do I need to do when I arrive at the Club to take part in a class?

Wash or sanitise your hands as you enter the Club.

When moving around the Club please follow directional arrows and signage and adhere to the social distancing rules.

Go straight to the designated exercise area. Please sanitise your hands and register with the instructor who will then give you further instructions.

  1. How are the exercise areas and equipment being cleaned?

We will implement an enhanced cleaning regime, allowing 15 minutes of cleaning between each class.

Cleaning products will be provided in each exercise area and the member will be expected to clean equipment before and after use.  Club staff will clean all touch points between each class using a virucidal disinfectant.

Hand sanitising gel will be provided at key locations around the Club. You will be expected to sanitise your hands prior to entering the facility.

  1. What do I do if I feel unwell during a session or in a class?

Please let a member of staff or the instructor know asap. They will then give you further instructions.

  1. What will happen if I or someone who has attended the class tests positive for Covid-19?

We ask that anyone who is unwell or is suffering any symptoms of covid19 DOES NOT ATTEND the Club under any circumstances and ask that you follow the government guidelines with regards to self-isolation.

If you get positive results of a COVID19 test having been to the Club within 14 days of the test, please let the Club Manager know as soon as possible.

We will then inform anyone who may have come into contact with you or who was attending the same class.

The club will then close for a period of time and be thoroughly cleaned.

  1. If I miss the start of my time slot can I run over if I haven’t finished my workout or swim?

No. Sorry. You will need to make sure you arrive, complete your exercise routine, cool down and leave within the allotted time slot. You will be give 5 minutes notice of the end of the session then asked to leave the building at the end of the allocated time slot.

  1. How will Group Exercise classes be organized?

The exercise areas (excluding the pool) will be marked out to give everyone a designated space to work out in, which provides a 2 metre distance between participants.  When you arrive for your class:

  • Please wait in the corridor 2 metres apart until invited in to the studio by the instructor.
  • Please take the next available marked exercise space following the one way routes shown on the floor of the studio.
  • Please DO NOT attempt to reserve or move to your “favourite” space.
  • Once you are in your workout space, please remain within the defined area and do not leave it without permission from the instructor.

At the end of the class, please follow the instructions issued by the Instructor for vacating the studio, which may be via the nearest fire exit.
