Active Facilities in Level 1

 Facilities In Level One

The Chief Minister announced further easing of the measures taken to combat the Corona virus Pandemic in Jersey on Friday the 8th August. Since then the Centres have been working on things we can do to enhance our offering in line with the guidance.

The updated guidance for Leisure facilities is very much in line with the guidance for Level 2, requiring Gyms and Activities to remain within the low to moderate intensity levels for indoor exercise.

The numbers taking part in each activity session are still limited and available on a pre-booked arrangement only, in line with the current guidance, but we are pleased to confirm that from the 3rd September Fort Regent and Les Quennevais will be extending their opening times to offer more sessions and classes to accommodate more members.

Level 1 guidance has indicated changing facilities can be reopened under strict hygiene guidelines. The measures required to open these facilities require significant resources the facilities do not have at this time, therefore we must advise our customers that the showers will remain closed for now.

At Fort Regent some changing facilities will be open for Active Gym and group fitness class attendees only. Capacities will be restricted, so we still encourage customers to come ready for your workout to get the most from your session in the Gym.

At Les Quennevais limited changing facilities will be available for school groups, aqua class attendees and disabled customers only for now and at Springfield the changing rooms remain closed for general use.

The Active membership fees have been held at 25% of normal rates since the beginning of July. Our members will be advised this week that the charges will be increasing from the beginning of September to 50% of normal rates. This still presents great value for money for the facilities available and we would like to reassure our vulnerable customers that still wish to continue their existing membership freeze that this option is still available to you.

Please see the attached summary of Facilities available at the three Centres in Level 1.

We are grateful to our members for their loyalty during this time and we will continue to explore options to add more activity and variety to our timetables that meet the criteria set out in the Level 1 guidance. We will keep you posted on any developments and welcome your suggestions and feedback. At any time you can leave feedback for us here: https://www.gov.je/government/comments/Pages/index.aspx or leave your feedback with a member of our team who will record it on your behalf.

IMPORTANT ACTIVE ANNOUNCEMENT

Level 2_Re -Opening

Dear Active Member,

We hope you have been staying Fit and found new ways to complete your exercise programs during lockdown? Hopefully some of you took advantage of the live zoom sessions offered by some of our Group Fitness instructors, or perhaps you've been working through the extensive programs available using the Free trial of our Partners Les Mills On Demand app? 

However you've been keeping fit, I'm sure you're wondering what is happening at the centres, following the announcements made by the Minister for Economy on the 1st June, and I can tell you that the teams across the facilities have been working hard behind the scenes to get your local sports centres back up and running in line with the latest Public Health guidance for Fitness activity in Level 2.  

We're pleased to announce that all of our Active Centres will be offering limited programmes, on a pre-booked basis only that fits within the Public Health guidelines detailed for lower intensity activity. The Active team recognise the benefits of keeping our local community active but are stepping forward cautiously to ensure we do not jeopardise the Safe Exit plans. Things may look and feel a little different in our centres and not all sports and activities will be available at this stage. (see summary below)

As the Island moves through the Safe exit framework we will look to add to these programmes, subject to guidance from Public Health, but for now we are only able to offer lower intensity activity. This has been defined by Public Health as follows "During lower-intensity activity / exercise, you should be able to comfortably talk and hold a short conversation."

Obviously this limits what we can offer in the Centres, but we wanted to give our members and other users of the facilities some activity during this Level of the safe Exit Framework. 

Active -Class -Timetables -June -2020-1

It may not be the workout you were hoping for initially, but getting this phase right is incredibly important. We all have a responsibility to limit the risk of spreading the virus so the Centres will have increased hygiene programs in place and adapted access arrangements to manage the risk. We must also ask the people using our facilities to adhere to the Public Health guidelines, maintaining a distance of two metres from each other and to safeguard themselves, other users and our staff from the spread of infection. 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Les Mills On Demand _Blog

For those of you that want a more intense workout, you can still sign up for the 60 day free trial of the Les Mills on Demand App here: lesmillsondemand.com/SHtX. With 800 workouts to choose from, there's sure to be something that fits the bill.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

At the Centres we have been working on the following areas to be ready to open from Friday this week:

Key changes:

  • We need to manage customer flow in each activity area and to ensure social distancing. Therefore all sessions (gym, fitness classes and swim) must be pre-booked using the Active App if you are a member, or booked and paid for in advance over the telephone if you do not hold a membership.
  • You must bring relevant proof of your booking to gain entry - and you will need to turn up on time to make the most of your sessions (but not too early!).
  • No bookings are being taken at the door so please make your booking before you set off for the centre.
  • Should you need to make a payment at our facilities during level 2 we will take card payments only, no cash.
  • Gym equipment will be spaced out, some equipment may be out of service, and different areas of the centre may be used to ensure everyone has more space (eg: a group fitness class may be offered in a Sports Hall).
  • Where suitable outside facilities exist, some of our classes may be outside in the fresh air. 
  • We need to ensure a fair allocation of time for each customer so all sessions will be time limited.  Your slot will include the allowance for safe arrival, movement through the centre, and leaving the premises.
  • You will not be permitted to move from one activity to another activity and may be asked to leave the premises between sessions on the same day.
  • No changing rooms, showers or lockers will be available during Level 2 so please arrive ready for your session, leaving personal belongings in your car or at home.  Sauna and steam facilities also remain closed.
  • Water Fountains will not be available, please don't forget to bring your water bottle.
  • Our standard car parking terms and conditions will re-start in line with island wide parking restrictions. Please do not forget to display your yellow disc

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cleanliness and hygiene

  • We will have an enhanced cleaning regime.
  • There will be cleaning equipment available throughout the gym and you will be required to use it before and after each exercise. This includes wiping down exercise mats. 
  • There will be hand gel readily available which you should use before you touch any equipment. 
  • You must exercise 2 meter social distancing at all times and respect other users.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Membership Payments

  • Membership fees will not be collected for any period we are open in June in recognition of the reduced offering available due to the restrictions in place because of Covid 19. We will closely monitor the developing situation and will consider the services available and appropriate fees for July onwards and will aim to give our members at least 7 day's notice of any change to the pricing.
  • When the Centres reopen, we will automatically remove the freeze from memberships, so members can pre-book available activity sessions. 
  • Members who wish to extend their freeze option, due to vulnerabilities, may do so by completing the online form available on our website here: /forms/freeze-your-active-card
  • Prepaid Annual memberships will be extended by the number of months the membership has been frozen, plus the "free period" the centres are open in June.

CLOSED-UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

All _Centres _Now _Closed

To help reduce the spread of coronavirus and further to last week's announcement by the Government of Jersey advising Islanders of all ages to immediately follow the principles of social distancing, we have taken the decision to close our Sports Centres. This move will support the delay of flattening the curve of infection which is now crucial in order to preserve the good running of our health services.

During the time our Active Centres are closed we will be automatically freezing all memberships, with no fee to pay until these facilities re-open; this includes the Active Swim School.  We will automatically reinstate memberships and subscriptions when Active Sports Centre's re-open.  There is no need for you to do anything - we will take care of all the administration of this. Your membership will be reinstated when we re-open or (if later) when your current freeze period ends.

Although these facilities will be closed, the Active App and social media channels will be full of health advice and workouts that you can do at home or out and on our beautiful island.  We encourage all of our members to stay fit and healthy during these uncertain times.  Our outside spaces and playing fields will all remain open and can all be enjoyed.
