COVID-19 UPDATE

12th March

*UPDATE ON THE BELOW*

Following on from our previous update, we want you to know what changes we are making in club to keep you safe. We'll be:

  • Reducing the class capacity sizes in all classes.
  • Removing all BJJ, MMA and sparring classes from the timetable.
  • Replacing or removing all classes with hammocks and silks.
  • Classes with shared stations will be reprogrammed to be single stations.
  • Durations of some classes will be reduced slightly to allow for extra cleaning.
  • Cycle Club classes will have a reduced capacity to allow a bike to be left empty between each rider.

We're following the COVID-19 outbreak closely and will continue to give you regular updates as we learn more from the World Health Organisation and the UK Government.

If you are suffering from any of the symptoms, no matter how mild, please consider staying at home to recover. If you have any concerns, we recommend using the NHS 111 service.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

At Gymbox we’re actively monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and we are taking additional precautionary measures to ensure the health and safety of all our members, guests, visitors and staff – this is our number one priority.

We’re committed to providing everyone who uses our clubs with a safe and hygienic space to train and are taking this situation extremely seriously. All members of the Gymbox team have been briefed on what actions they need to take, as per Government guidance, to reduce the risk of the virus spreading.

You can find out about the actions we are taking to keep our members safe, how we are responding to COVID-19 and how our members can keep themselves and others safe below.

What are we doing to keep members and staff safe?

  • Our cleaning teams operate throughout the day, cleaning and disinfecting the changing facilities, showers, flooring and equipment with a focus on all areas that come into contact with skin.
  • The cleaning products used are hospital standard.
  • All studio spaces and equipment are being cleaned and disinfected before peak times.
  • Alongside our antibacterial wipes we're adding hand sanitiser into all clubs.
  • We have added additional signage to create more awareness for members and reminding everyone to wash their hands.
  • All VPTs and Gymbox team members have been advised on what to do when returning from abroad in line with advice from the Government.
  • Following recommendations and guidelines from Public Health England, the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the NHS.

What can you do as a member to help?

  • Wash your hands frequently, for 20 seconds (yes, that’s Happy Birthday twice) with soap and water.
  • Wipe down equipment before and after use with the biodegradable antibacterial wipes that are provided on the gym floor and studios.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing and sneezing and dispose of the tissue in the bin after use (wash those hands straight away too)
  • If you are suffering from any of the symptoms, no matter how mild, please consider staying at home to recover. If you have any concerns, we recommend using the NHS 111 service.
  • If you are a returning traveller, please follow the Government guidance.

Currently there are no reported cases of a member, visitor, guest or staff member testing positive for Coronvirus (COVID-19). Our clubs are open and classes are running as normal. If anyone who has been into one of our gyms does test positive for the virus we will temporarily close the club for a deep clean. It will then reopen once this has been completed.

If you have tested positively for Coronavirus (COVID-19) and have used the gym recently please contact member services via email, [email protected]
