Safety measures – lets work together to keep our centre safe

As before, all sessions, including gym, classes and swimming, must be pre-booked and paid for before you arrive at the centre. Bookings can be made online or via the 1610 Active2 app or by calling our team. No bookings or payments can be taken at the centre.

We are confident in our ability to minimise the risk of infection to keep you and our staff safe. We have implemented enhanced cleaning procedures and social distancing measures in all areas of our centres to create a safe environment for you to visit. These include:

  • Sanitising stations installed at key locations around the centre
  • Implementation of customer travel and queue management systems to aid safe social distancing
  • Signage displayed throughout the centre to assist and direct you safely
  • Enhanced cleaning procedures throughout the centre in line with UK Active and Public Health England guidance
  • Comprehensive training for staff on new operating procedures ensuring member and staff safety is always a priority
  • Amended gym and pool capacities and class timetables to enable safe social distancing
  • Access to the gym will be provided in 45 miniute slots initially to maintain safe capacities
  • Plastic shield installation within our gyms to enable safe social distancing

We all have a role to play in keeping safe. Please support us by kindly following these simple rules:

  • Do not attend if you feel unwell or are showing COVID-19 symptoms.
  • All activities must be pre-booked in advance via the 1610 app or website to minimise face to face interaction – this includes the gym and pool. To maintain safe capacities walk-ins will not be allowed.
  • Check your contact details are up to date on our system, to enable track and trace.
  • Bring your own drink and yoga mat (our fountains and mats will be out of use).
  • Leave your gym towel at home and use paper towels provided to minimise spread of possible infection.
  • Travel light and turn up ready to work-out in your gym kit to avoid use of lockers.
  • Use the Sanitising Stations to clean your hands and kit before and after use.
  • Follow the social distance signs.
