Important Message Regarding Covid-19

Booking System

We are not operating an online booking system, access will be as normal.

This is because the square footage of The Gym Club and the quantity of equipment is very large compared to the membership base. In accordance with the government guidelines we must be able to maintain safe social distancing. We calculate we can accommodate 50 people on the gym floor maximum. There has never, even on the busiest of days, been that many people on the gym floor, so we do not envisage any issues in having access as normal. The system knows exactly how many people are in the gym so we can easily monitor the situation. If social distancing does become problematic, we do have an automated booking system that we can switch on, that operates through the existing app.

Air Conditioning

The Gym Club’s air conditioning system is designed for purpose. The building is fully airconditioned throughout. The air is HEPA filtered as it is cooled/heated. In addition there is a separate fresh air in and extract air out system in every individual area/room of the gym. So you can be assured that the air is getting regularly replaced with fresh air all the time.

Changes in the Gym
