Latest news - Chard gym is getting ready to reopen

Following the government announcement and proposed roadmap, we are now getting ready to reopen the gym on Monday 12th April, subject to Government confirmation. As per the government guidance we are not able to offer indoor group exercise classes until the 17th May. However, we will be putting on a small number of outdoor classes, including a 6 week Nordic walking technique course.

Your payment plan

All direct debits are currently frozen. These will automatically restart from 8 April 2021 and remain on your previous direct debit collection date. If your direct debit payment was taken on 1st January, your first payment will be taken on the 1st May at a reduced rate to compensate for the days we are closed up until the 12th April. Customers who have their Direct Debit payments taken on the 8th, 15th and 25th of the month will have their payments adjusted to compensate for any money owed following the lockdown.

If you have an annual membership, this will be extended for the time that we have been closed to ensure that you receive your full 12 month membership.

Please do not cancel your direct debit at your bank

We hope you wish to remain with us. If you have cancelled your direct debit mandate with your bank directly, we will be unable to automatically reinstate your membership when we reopen and you may also incur additional sign up costs.

Up-front payments

If you have paid for any up front activities such as pay and go classes or events, you will be credited. You will then be able to re-book when we return to business as usual.

On demand classes

Our studios will be closed but we can still support you with our On Demand Class app. Access an amazing range of workouts and classes on your device from your own home. Train whenever, wherever you like with a no-commitment monthly subscription of just £9.99, giving you access to a huge range of sessions. Click here for details and online sign up.
