We have been mobilising our action plan since before the lockdown happened.
Two weeks before gyms were asked to close we had already cut session length down by 10 minutes to allow disinfecting of all used equipment between sessions and were already delivering Live PT sessions so members had the choice to train from home if they had already taken the decision to self-isolate.
When the closing order came we were fully prepared and ramped up our online offering.
Our doors closed but our support carried on exactly as it had before.
We have had a lot of fun with members during lockdown keeping them physically and mentally active and giving them any and all support we can.
We are more than 'just a gym' we are a full health and well-being service and the best goddamned community you will ever see so it was only right that our mission carried on just as before.
We are now turning our attention to how we will reopen our doors.
It is very clear that we need to be more stringent than ever to ensure members and staff alike are safe within our four walls.
We believe that this absolutely can be achieved and that the model we use with small groups in well managed spaces is the perfect environment to support people's health and fitness in a post pandemic world.
With that being the case we have put a number of measures in place already and we have more measures being put in place before we open.
As members of The IFBA (International Fitness Business Alliance) we have direct support on our response to Coronavirus through UK Active (The national body that lobbies the Government on behalf of the Health and Fitness Industry) to make sure that what we are doing is ahead of government guidelines and ensuring that safety of members and staff.
