Covid-19 Reopening Measures

We want to ensure that all of our users feel safe when coming back to the facility, and in doing so we have had to make sure certain social distancing measures and capacity levels are in place to meet recommended guidelines set out by the appropriate governing bodies and university policies.

Please watch the following video before using the gym for the first time:

Our staff in the fitness suite will be operating an enhanced cleaning policy and undertaking regular spot checks to make sure equipment is cleaned thoroughly on a regular basis. We ask our customers help maintain these high standards by using the cleaning products provided before and after using equipment.

Changes to expect as a gym user:

  • No spotting- Please refrain from lifting heavy weights that require a spotter
  • Towel usage- Wipe yourself with your towel, not the equipment
  • Please wipe equipment down before and after use with cleaning products provided
  • Limits of 30 minutes on cardio equipment
  • Train alone, not in pairs/groups
  • No sharing equipment between sets
  • Booking is mandatory to use the gym, and most sessions are 90 minutes long
  • Some equipment will be placed out of use to abide with social distancing measures
