A message from Wellness Manager Phil Wyatt:

In light of the government’s guidance regarding social distancing we have decided with immediate effect to reduce the numbers of attendees at our fitness classes.

For those customers who have already booked attendance at classes, especially popular ones such as Body Pump and Body Attack, please contact your centre to ensure that your place is still booked.

At both Sevenoaks and Edenbridge fitness gyms, we will be “blocking out” every other piece of CV equipment to ensure there is additional spacing for customers.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and we will email customers with any update. Let’s all work together to keep ourselves and each other safe and healthy.

Yours faithfully,

Phil Wyatt
Wellness Manager

17.03.2020 - Customer Communication

“In line with guidance from the appropriate authorities we have increased the frequency of cleaning throughout our centres and the focus on hygiene management in our gyms. Specifically, we have:
• Increased the frequency of cleaning high touch areas such as, door handles, lockers, changing rooms, equipment etc.
• Redoubled efforts to ensure that soap dispensers remain filled in all changing rooms and WC facilities
• Ensured hand sanitisers and are refilled frequently
• Continued to remind customers of the importance of good hygiene both in and out of the centre

Customers are taking extra care to increase personal hygiene, which has meant demand for hand sanitiser gel and cleaning materials has increased significantly. We will continue to do everything we can to keep the centres well stocked of these items.

Secondly, we have advised and will continue to advise all of our staff on the latest advice and recommendations from the government and Public Health England on what to do to keep themselves safe.

Thirdly, we will keep you informed. Advice from the UK’s health authorities is very clear: the risk of a customer becoming infected if another customer or staff member has tested is positive is very low. However, if we are notified of any relevant issue at any of our centres or if a customer contracts the virus and has visited one of our centres we will follow the advice and guidance of the local Health Protection Team and notify customers and undertake a thorough clean of the centre.”
