Frequently asked questions

We're Back

We're super excited to announce that we will be re-opening on Wednesday 2nd December at 6.30am.

Our opening hours will be: 

Mon - Thurs 6:30am - 7:30pm 

Fri - 6:30am - 6:15pm

Sat & Sun Closed

We will close 10:30-11am and 15:00-15:30 each day to clean.

Having monitored usage levels closely when we last re-opened we are pleased to announce you will not have to book your visit to the gym for a workout but we would ask you tolimit your workout to 70 minutes. 

We're really looking forward to having you back. 

Both staff and members will play a part in creating a clean and safe environment for everyone. Our increased infection prevention procedures include:

  • Hand sanitising stations: We ask that you sanitise your hands in the entrance on arrival and throughout the gym during your visit.
  • Disinfectant Wipe Pods: We also ask that you clean any gym equipment before and after use with sanitising wipes.
  • Two-stage cleaning process: Both our cleaning and fitness teams will be carrying out a two-stage cleaning process, which involves an initial detergent clean, followed by a disinfectant clean.
  • Increased cleaning hours: Gym equipment will be sanitised on a regular basis throughout the day and the gym will be thoroughly cleaned every night. We'll also be shortening group exercise classes to allow more time for the studios to be cleaned.
  • Training: All staff have undertaken cleaning training including COVID-19 Awareness, Infection Prevention and Hand Hygiene.
  • Protection: We've installed plastic shields at reception desks and we'll be providing PPE for our staff in line with Public Health England recommendations.

  • Social distancing signage: This includes including floor markers indicating where to stand, posters indicating capacity in each area of the gym and, where possible, directional signs indicating one-way systems
  • Limits on numbers: To avoid overcrowding, we will limit how many people are allowed in the gym at once.
  • Smaller classes: Studio capacity will be reduced for group exercise classes to allow for the 2-metre social distancing rule. When you're waiting for your class, please follow social distancing rules and clear the studio space as quickly as you can when the class has finished
  • Shorter classes: Classes will be between 30 and 45 minutes, to allow time for cleaning and to allow members to leave the studio safely
  • Less equipment: Some equipment on the gym floor will be unavailable to allow for social distancing
  • Fewer lockers: To avoid having too many people in the changing rooms, there won't be as many lockers available as usual.

Our staff will be risk assessed for the need for barrier protection, e.g. face coverings such as visors. PHE guidance states that where physical distancing can't be maintained, or the possibility for exposure is high (such as long lengths of time indoors) or risk of activity is high (for example directly working with bodily fluids) there is a higher risk of exposure.

All members of our clean team will be provided with adequate PPE to ensure both their own safety and yours, in line with Public Health England and UK Active advice. All other members of staff will be wearing PPE where the 2-metre rule can't be adhered to.

We're asking members to spend no longer than 70 minutes exercising so that everyone can use the gym. This means you can only undertake one activity per day. For example, you can't use the gym and then go to a class.

This policy will be reviewed on a regular basis and you'll be informed if we're able to relax this.

No, we monitored usage carefully when we first reopened and we will not require you to book for a gym workout. Classes will still be bookable though. Don't forget we also have our online platform for classes. You can access a free 14 day trial at the top of this page.  

Your membership will be automatically reactivated from 2nd December, you don’t need to do anything. If you pay by Direct Debit, the government announcement on the 2nd lockdown came after the November 1st payments had been processed by your bank. These payments will be credited against your December membership and your next Direct Debit will be on January 1st.

If you have registered for online bookings previously you can log straight in to the app. If however, you are new to online bookings you must first register at
