Work out with us safely

 

 

Our Clubs 

Markings to ensure safe training spaces with safe distancing.
You’ll find floor markers located around the club to help you train at a safe distance. We ask that, when using our clubs, you follow the markers and maintain the prescribed distance from your fellow members. Safe distancing has been set up in accordance with Sport SG guidelines to 2 meters for low/medium intensity workouts and 3 meters for high intensity ones.


Equipment and machines laid out with at least 2m apart between members.
You might notice that we’ve rearranged some of the equipment in our clubs. This is to make sure you have all the space you need while working out. Chat to our friendly team if you’re trying to locate your preferred equipment!


Limits on number of people in our facilities and classes.

As per Sport SG guidance and to create a safe exercise experience, we will need to limit our club capacity to a maximum of 50 members at any time. Our group exercise classes will also be reduced in size to allow sufficient safe distancing.


Bookable schedules for gym floor access and group exercise.
To safely manage the capacity in our clubs, all our members will need to use our online platform to book a slot prior to accessing the club including for gym floor access.

In the interest of all our members and to allow sufficient access to our clubs, gym floor workouts will be bookable in 1-hour slots, and you can arrive at any time during your booked hour to workout however you like - run, stretch, swim or shower. You just need to be out of the club by the end of your booked time. 

For group exercise, you will be able to arrive 10 minutes before your class and will have 15 mins after your class to get changed before leaving the club. Our usual booking rules will otherwise remain the same.

For the usage of our pools, just book a gym floor slot and you will be granted access to the pool during your timeslot. A maximum of 1 person per lane will be allowed for safe distancing.

For the safety of everyone and to keep the number of members in line with the restricted capacity of 50, we would like to seek the support of all our members to respect the allocated timeslot.


Group exercise studios and equipment cleaned after every class.
You may notice that we’ve made some adjustments to our timetable. This is to allow extra time for our team to disinfect equipment and surfaces in our studios between classes.  


Salt rooms will continue to operate.

We’ll be keeping our ice/steam rooms and sleep pods closed until further notice.


Air conditioning units set to increase fresh air circulation.

 

High-touch features out of action.
Some of our high-touch features and areas like our internet stations, rock climbing walls and Yoga props (blankets and bolsters) will remain out of action for a little while.  


Our Cleaning Protocol 

Cleaning high-touch surfaces every 3 hours.
Every 3 hours our teams will be paying special attention to cleaning high-touch items such as weights, handles and knobs. 


Chlorinated pools checked every 4 hours.

We will continue to ensure that our chlorinated pool systems are hygiene checked every 4 hours to make sure they stay sparkling clean.


Increased cleaning throughout the day and daily deep cleaning of the entire club.
We’ve always done this, but now more than ever we’re spending extra time and deploying team members to make sure our clubs are at their best.

We’ll be doing a temperature and health check on all our staff twice a day to make sure they’re also well and ready to help you enjoy your workout.


Trained teams ready to go.
Our teams have all completed training on our safety protocols and our COVID-19 secure plan. A Safe Management Officer (SMO) has been appointed, extensive training provided and our skilled team will be on shift to ensure your safety throughout the day.  


Extra efforts scheduled to clean throughout the day.
We’re putting in extra effort to keep our clubs clean. All staff have been provided with disinfectant spray and wipes so you’ll find our teams sanitising and wiping multiple times every day.  


Our teams will be safe distancing.
Everyone in our clubs will be keeping their distance and our people are no exception.  All our team members have been allocated to split shifts with no cross over or cross deployment to other clubs. 


Hands off coaching.
Our Coaches will still get you working up a sweat from a safe distance. This means no hands-on adjustments or high fives during Personal Training, but we know they’re still proud of your efforts.  


We urge our team and our members to stay home if you are unwell. 

Wash your hands, practice good hygiene and maintain physical distance. We also ask that if your health circumstances have changed, please re-complete a health check.
