We don't want you taking too many steps backwards in your journey and even though we have these restrictions we want you to feel as motivated and supported as ever.

Currently in the gym we will are implementing our COVID SAFE PLAN that includes more regular cleaning, readily available hand sanitizer for you and our equipment and Social distancing of 1.5 meters between members, trainers and equipment. It will also involve you assisting us and your fellow community here by not coming in to train if you feel unwell and adhering to all new regulations.

We’re all in this together so please have a thorough read of this information in our COVID SAFE PLAN to understand how we will be ensuring everyone’s safety as we help you achieve your health and fitness goals.
