Keeping you safe in the gym
You can read in full about how we have redefined our cleaning and safety standards here.
It is not possible anywhere to totally elimiate the risk of infection however the measures in place will dramatically reduce the risk of infections within our gyms. For your own safety, please sanitise your hands when arriving at the gym and throughout your visit and avoid touching your face.
We have formed an advisory panel including Dr. David Lawrence and Professor Greg Whyte OBE to provide expert advice on the measures we are taking.
The gym, including all equipment, will be cleaned a minimum of every 3 hours to the NHS non clinical standards. The cleaning products used are of the same standard as anti-viral products used by the NHS. Whilst it is not possible anywhere to remove the risk of infection, the measures will dramatically minimise the risk of infections within gyms.
In England, following the latest advice from the Government, from Monday 5th October members are encouraged to wear a suitable face covering while in the gym (except when exercising). Please wear a face covering when entering the gym, in communal areas and changing rooms, and when moving around the gym. This can be removed during exercise. Please ensure that all used masks are disposed of safely in one of the bins provided.
In Scotland and Wales, face coverings must be worn by law within the communal areas of the gym, but can be removed whilst exercising.
You are not required to wear a mask in our gyms in Northern Ireland.
In line with the latest government advice in England, everyone is now encouraged to wear a face covering in all public areas. As such, from Monday 5th October, members will be encouraged to wear a suitable face covering while in our gyms (except when exercising).
In line with Government advice, we are strongly encouraging our PTs in England to wear a face covering in the gyms whilst not exercising.
In Scotland and Wales our gym staff will wear masks at all times in line with members, who are required to wear masks while in communal areas.
Yes - if you wish to, but please ensure you do so safely;
- To avoid the risk of bringing the virus into the gym, we ask that you put gloves on once you have entered the gym
- Once removed, gloves should be carefully disposed of in the bin
- If you are wearing gloves, we will ask that you clean kit before and after each use
- It is still recommended that you avoid touching your hands and mouth, even when wearing gloves
Yes, to help keep members safe we will always have a team on hand to ensure the gym is clean and to support any members as required.
Every member has a unique QR code which can be found when logged into the app. In most gyms we will have QR scanners available for use which will allow access once the code is scanned. You can also purchase key fobs via the PureGym shop and in the vending machines in the gym, these can then be linked to your membership and simply held against the PIN pad to allow entry. Both of these are contactless methods of entry into the gym.
