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.

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.
