Changes put into place to ensure gym-goers across Gedling borough remain safe during their fitness routines have been celebrated in a new local government video.
The video has been created by HM Government Midlands to show what changes people can expect to see when returning to gyms after lockdown. – and Gedling Leisure teams were selected to show people across the region what will be different.
Gym teams carried out a walkthrough of the changes, which has been shared on the local government’s social media channels.
These are the changes…
There will be reduced capacity and pre-booking.
Users will need to pre-book a time slot for a gym session, a swim or exercise class and only visit within that timeslot. People are also being advised to arrive and queue 10 minutes before your allocated time. If you arrive more than five minutes late for your session you may not be allowed to participate. All sessions must be booked and paid for in advance.
Those using a gym are being told to arrive dressed ready to work out as lockers and changing rooms are out of use.
Gym equipment has been spread out with clearly marked areas, to allow at least 2 metres from you and another customer. Some machines will be marked as out of use and there is a one way system in the gym spaces, to help everyone to keep their distances.
All classes also have floor markings to ensure people have at least 2 metres between them and the next person.
