Each gym session is for one hour with 45 minutes for your workout and 15 minutes allowed for cleaning within the session. Cleaning wipes are available for cleaning your equipment at the cleaning stations within the gym. Please make sure you use the bins provided for disposing of cleaning wipes and other similar items.
In addition, we have a dedicated cleaning regime in operation throughout Gym opening hours, with additional ‘deep cleans’ taking place outside these hours.
  5. Social distancing

How will you ensure social distancing? It’s vital we continue to follow Government advice on social distancing, and we’ve put the following measures in-place to help everyone stay safe: ·    The booking system limits the number of people who can use the gym at any one time·    There are 2-meter floor markings at Gym entry and exit points·    There are also 2-meter floor markings throughout the Gym ·    Where equipment is within 2 metres of each other, one piece will be marked as not in use to ensure social distancing·    Pieces of equipment which can be moved - such as weights – are placed in clearly marked zones If social distancing isn’t followed, we may have to review access to the gym, and we don’t want to be in that position, so please help us by following the guidance.
Can I bring a guest into the Health Club?
As we currently must restrict the number of people using the gym, we’re giving priority to residents and therefore guests are not permitted at this time. However, as restrictions ease, we hope to be able to admit guests 6. Fire safetyThe fire doors must always be kept closed.
