Returning to use the Gym 25th July 2020

We are getting closer to reopening and have more information for you regarding provisions and procedures whilst using the club.

Booking System

  • Social distancing rules require us to control numbers of people using the club at any one time. There will be three ways to book a timed slot:
    • Our website will have an online booking system
    • Telephoning the club during opening hours. 01630652786
    • A personal visit to make a booking
  • The online booking system will go live on Thursday 23rd July and telephone bookings will be accepted between 9:00-12:00 and 16:00-19:00 for the Thursday and Friday before we open and will continue after that during normal opening hours.
  • Booking slots are on the hour with each exercise booking limited to 45 minutes as we need 15 minutes to clean all equipment before the next booking slot.
  • There will be a limit of 7 members for the Gym and 2 members for the weights room for any time slot
  • Bookings are available on a rolling week basis. I.e. up to 7 days in advance.
  • Members are asked to limit to 1 booking per day unless needing to book both for Gym and Weights Room. In which case they must be separate time slots.
  • If you do not have a valid booking you will not be admitted to the club.
  • You can cancel a booking by using the cancel feature on your confirmation email or by telephoning the club during opening hours.

Safety Procedures

  • On arrival you will be asked to take a no contact temperature check. Should you have a fever you will be asked to go home and come another day.
  • Please use the hand sanitisers placed through the building. Use the first one by the front door when you come in.
  • A one-way system of entry & exit. Enter through the front door and leave by the back door to reduce the risk of bumping into others.
  • Use sanitising wipes provided to clean all equipment when you have finished using it.
  • Come prepared for the gym as changing rooms and toilets will be closed except for the toilet located in reception.
  • Please do not bring a personal towel, use disposable paper towels provided.
  • We are installing a fantastic air purification system which has been shown to reduce surface bound virus counts by 99.99%.


  • Everybody will be required to complete new membership forms to ensure we have your up to date contact details for the track and trace system.
  • New Standing Forms will be needed for those of you who cancelled.
  • it is cheaper to pay via standing order than paying cash each month. You also avoid the inevitable delay each month of renewing your membership. This is a golden opportunity to take advantage of a convenient payment option which will save you over £40.
  • To save time when we will open Thursday 23rd and Friday 24th between 9:00-12:00 and 16:00-19:00 so that you can pop in and bring your forms with you along with your membership card to renew your membership.
  • The last week of July will be a complimentary reintroduction period for everybody. Payments will be for the month of August, with the standing orders commencing 1st September.
