Welcome To The New Zone
We’re re opening on Saturday the 25th July Here’s (almost) everything you need to know. Bare with us, it’s a long one…
💪We’ve been busy 💪
New mezzanine floor has been built to enable us to space out the equipment for social distancing, making for a much nicer training environment. We’ve also added 2 of the racks from the studio into the main Gym so classes and people training in the gym will be separate. There’s more space around the new dumbbell area, we’ve placed perspex screens between some of the cardio. We’ve added more mirrors, had a new sound system throughout, new graphics on the walls and a new paint job, the place is looking brand new. There are toilets but no changing facilities will be available for the foreseeable future.
To enable us to maintain a safe capacity, all sessions, including gym and all classes will now be booked using our app. You will not be able to turn up to the gym without a booking. Please see bottom of email for instructions on how to download and log in to the app. Bookings are not available yet, we will release more info this week/when we know the date we’re able to open from. You must have an active membership to book sessions, if you are expired and would like to renew, please get in touch as all memberships will now be done online, we will not be offering any memberships in the gym. Anyone who has frozen their membership, will not be able to book until it has reactivated, if this is 1st August for example, you will not have access to the booking system until 1st August.
At the moment our plan is to have gym session slots available every 30 minutes, each slot will be for 60 minutes. You must arrive no earlier than your slot time (wait outside if necessary) and must leave no later than 60 minutes after your slot began. We are just waiting on government information to be announced to ensure this will abide by regulations.
In the studio, we have 3 metre boxes for members to keep socially distanced while partaking in classes. We have a new timetable too:
✅Most classes are now 45 minutes. This allows us to have 15 minutes between classes to clean equipment down (and if there’s a class after, everyone out before the next class group comes in)
✅2 lots of circuits on Monday, Tuesdays and Thursdays. With a capacity of 18 (or more with nice weather to use outdoor area) this means there is plenty of room for everyone
✅New Circuit with Dave on Friday evenings🙌
✅All Circuits will be slightly different for the forseeable, with each member having their own ‘box’ and equipment as opposed to sharing equipment. This will be cleaned down at the end of each class
✅Spinning is now in the main studio so plenty of space and lots of airflow😆
✅9.15am-ers, you now have a barbell class with Chloe on Mondays🏋️♂️
✅Gemma hasn’t gone anywhere, she will now be teaching HIIT and Spin on Tuesdays
✅Saturday circuits are slightly earlier, leaving you more time to enjoy your weekend👌
✅Claire’s Monday Spin will now be on Tuesdays (as we’ve had to combine both spin and studio timetables)
✅Unfortunately no boxing for the forseeable as we can’t have the close contact between members or use of boxing gloves. For now, you’ve still got sessions with Boothy/Dave though, just slightly different classes 🥊
✅Weight training is now open to both male/female as we thought this would allow those of you who enjoy these classes to attend more weight classes over a 7 day period
✅Classes will be limited to 1 a day per member (specifically in the evenings and weekends) to ensure we can accommodate everyone and keep classes as spacious as possible
✅The studio will be out of use during classes to non-class goers to ensure social distancing is maintained. Open studio times are on the timetable. You are able to use the outdoor area (as long as you arrive and leave during the 15 minutes between classes). 2 racks from the studio are now in the main gym.
✅ We’ll be asking that you arrive no more than 5 minutes before sessions (wait in your car or outside) so we can let the previous class exit the studio first
Opening hours have slightly changed – we’ll be closing 30 mins earlier than we used to on Fridays and Weekends we’ll be opening and closing a bit earlier both days (see timetable)🙌
We think that’s everything😬 Please note the timetable and all other services are subject to any changes the government may ask us to abide by. We’re positive we have done everything possible to make the safest training environment possible🙏 We’ll continue to email you and post on social media RE anything you need to know before we open so keep your eyes peeled.
We are so excited to see you all again and get training.
