SPORT IN DESFORD GYM – REOPENING DATE: SATURDAY 25th July 2020
I am excited to be writing this letter to inform you that the gym at Sport in Desford will be reopening on Saturday 25th July.
I hope you have been safe and well during this extended period of lockdown.
The UK government have provided guidelines on the measures that need to be put in place to make sure the gym at Sport in Desford is a safe place to exercise in.
This will mean the gym will be operating in a different way to what you have been used to prior to lockdown.
Measures that have been put in place are as follows:
Deep Clean: I can confirm that a deep clean of the gym has been carried out.
Regular sanitising of the gym equipment: Will be carried out on a regular basis throughout the day
Regular sanitising of touching points: Will be carried out on a regular basis throughout the day.
A phased approach to the reopening of the gym: Priority given to members with prepaid session fees, and standing order members who have maintained payments during lockdown.
A booking in system: Contact details to book your first gym session are provided separately with the gym timetable on the Sport in Desford website.
A maximum of 4 people: In each 1 hour gym session
To come dressed: In appropriate clothing to exercise as changing rooms will be closed.
Initial Induction: Creating awareness of the new procedures for the use of the gym, and the facility
Cleaning Products: They will be available for all members to clean down stations after use
Sanitising Wall Dispensers/ Stations: These will be available throughout the facility, and gym
Social Distancing Measures: These will be adopted – 2m apart throughout the facility and gym.
One- way system: to enter and exit the building
Minimal touching points – ( doors to be left open whenever possible )
Face coverings/ Hand Sanitiser: ( Please bring your own, but face coverings are not mandatory at the moment )
Ventilation: Fans will be placed in specific areas to help with the flow of natural air.
Payment: If you are a PAYG member then please try to bring the correct change or pay in advance
No towels or bags: in the gym please.
We will need to work together to create a safe, and clean environment.
Flexibility with your Gym Programme: Consideration for social distancing when exercising around other members.
The revised gym session times: we will be opening each week commencing from the 25th July.
A flexible approach to booking time slots will have to be taken initially due to the restriction in only 4 people for each 1 hour gym session.
A booking system is there for a reason, so it is important for all members to arrive, and finish within their allotted times.
Decisions on amending opening times, and how many people can attend, and who can attend the gym will change as restrictions are loosened.
Members with existing health conditions, and individuals attending through the Exercise Referral/ Heartsmart scheme will be contacted by me directly to discuss whether it is appropriate to attend the gym at this time.
I really look forward to seeing everybody back in the gym at Sport in Desford in the coming months
Stay Safe, Stay well,
Sport in Desford Gym Manager, and Specialist Level 4 Rehabilitation Instructor
