COVID secure guidelines
When you’re ready, we’re ready
We are thrilled to open our facility to members of Kings Fitness & Leisure. Over the past months the team have worked hard to welcome you back, in an environment where you feel safe!
Take a look at our 2 reopening videos, informing you of the measures we have taken and procedures we have made to ensure Kings Fitness & Leisure is compliant with all current government guidance.
Our cleaning schedules and procedures have been enhanced to maintain a high level of hygiene at Kings Fitness. Our new cleaning procedures include:
- All cleaning of touch points and equipment is carried out with a high level disinfectant and multi surface cleaner, certified to kill enveloped viruses.
- We have introduced hygiene tables across the site and have increased the amount of disinfectant spray and disposable tissue available to encourage members to wipe down equipment before and after use.
- We have incorporated extra time between classes to facilitate a thorough deep clean of studio equipment between sessions.
- Periodically, we carry out a thorough deep clean which includes the use of modern fogging equipment
We’re monitoring government guidance and working with UK Active to facilitate social distancing via the following measures:
- We have reduced the capacity in our gym, this capacity is managed by the member of staff positioned in the gym. Some equipment has either been removed or spaced apart to accommodate for social distancing.
- We have reduced the capacity in our group exercise classes and use floor markings to inform participants where to position themselves.
- The Swimming Pool is managed to adhere to all current guidance, working to achieve no more than 1 person per 3m2 of the water.
- We have introduced the use of plastic screens at reception desks to protect our members and staff.
- We have clear posters and floor markings to help members and staff stay a suitable distance apart.
