**With the further relaxation of Covid restrictions from 19th July, what does this mean for you at The Club?**

We would like to thank all our members once
again for their continued support.  

 ** In line with the Government announcement of the further relaxation of restrictions effective from 19th July, we are delighted to be able to clarify what this will mean for you at The Club. ** 

We have detailed below how we will be operating in going forward and whilst there may be a lot to take in as we adjust our “normal” routine initially, our team will be on hand to guide you, as required as we start to enjoy our latest freedoms. 

Please rest assured that what has not changed is our welcome and we look forward to seeing all our members, both old and new!  

General changes for all users of The Club:

  • ALL members entering the Club must continue to do so via Reception and use their Key Fob to sign in. 
  • As the Club is not a ‘crowded indoor space’ and we have good ventilation, there will no longer be a mandatory requirement to wear a face covering within the Club, unless you choose to do so in line with your own personal preference. (This does not include the 3 Beauty Rooms and Physio which are run as separate businesses and may have their own mask requirements).
  • Social distancing will not be required within the Club and the changing rooms and showers will now be back in use for everyone.
  • Our enhanced cleaning regime will remain in place and we will continue to encourage regular handwashing throughout your time at The Club. 

For Gym Users: 

  • There will be no requirement to book a session and therefore no limit on the number of members attending at any one time.  
  • Please continue to enter via Reception and you can exit EITHER via the Emergency Exit in the Gym as you have already been doing or back via Reception.
  • The 6 lockers in the Gym will remain for member use for those preferring to still arrive “gym ready” but the Changing Rooms and Showers will also be available to use.
  • The current ‘out of use’ Cardio equipment will be returned to operation and the Strength machines/Free weights will be re-positioned.
  • The 3 cleaning stations with wipes, hand sanitiser and blue-roll remain and we would appreciate you continuing to wipe down equipment after use as general hygiene best practice.
  • You will be able to bring personal towels into the Gym but we ask that personal towels are NOT used to wipe down equipment and please continue to use the blue roll / wipes provided.

 Attending a Group Exercise Class:

**All classes will continue to run in the Studio, with the exception of GGX and One to Ones which will be in the Gym. All classes are available to book up to 7 days in advance. Online booking is available but also at Reception or by phone.**

  • Booking into a class will still be required (as pre-lockdown) but the maximum numbers of attendees will increase to 15 for all classes except Indoor Cycling which will remain at 10 and Strength and Body Conditioning which will be 14.
  • For classes other than Indoor Cycling, the individual ‘workout boxes’ will remain with 3 additional boxes added. 
  • Please continue to enter via Reception and go upstairs to the Function Room corridor and wait until called by the Instructor (please don’t enter the Studio until told to do so). You will be able to leave EITHER via the Function Room corridor / Reception or spiral staircase / Gym Emergency Exit
  • The cleaning station remains with 2 buckets of gym wipes, blue-roll and hand sanisiter. We would appreciate you continuing to wipe down equipment after use as general hygiene best practice.
  • You will be able to bring personal towels into the Gym but we ask that personal towels are NOT used to wipe down equipment and please continue to use the blue roll / wipes provided.

For Pool Users and Aqua Classes:

  • General swimming sessions will remain bookable with a maximum of 3 people per session.

    The decision to continue with this system ensures an even spread of pool usage and members can be confident of their space and avoids overcrowding.

  • Some of the session times have been adjusted and new sessions added to increase available member swim times by over 8 hours a week. The majority of sessions are now 45 minutes long with a few at 60 and 40 minutes. 
  • Booking into an Aqua Class will still be required but the maximum numbers of attendees will change to either 12 or 15 (from 10 currently).
  • The bench seating will be available for use on poolside along with the new seating area covering the old Jacuzzi.
  • Please continue to shower prior to entering the pool to assist us in maintaining the water quality.
