Coronavirus update

Following recent Government advice, we will be able to reopen our Gyms and Swimming Pools on Wednesday, December 2nd which is great news for those keen to get back into their fitness routine. We will be delighted to see you back where our COVID-19 secure systems will remain as before.

Following the full lockdown announced for November, we refunded your monthly payment and froze all payments for December. This was given the uncertainty of when we would be able to safely open.

No group fitness classes will be permitted in December and we will operate a reduced service from 24th Dec until 2nd Jan as part of our usual Christmas closures.

Given this, we feel it is only fair to give you some different options for December.

LIVE TIMETABLES
