See below, what you need to know before visiting

Thank you so much for everyone’s patience and support during our closure.

Our members are required to follow new guidelines that have been put in place by RP Fitness and the government.

As part of our GymSafe🛡 commitment, we will be introducing several cleaning, hygiene and social distancing measures to keep you safe.

This means our team is prioritising hygiene and safety at all times.

Please avoid enquiring about your membership or any other general enquires at reception and instead, email us via our contact page. A member of our team endeavour to respond to you within 48 hours.

THIS PAGE WILL BE CONTINUOUSLY UPDATED, PLEASE CHECK BACK OFTEN

Click on the toggles below to find out more about our new measures:

When visiting RP Fitness you must:

  • Not visit the gym if you or anyone you live with are showing any symptoms of Covid-19
  • Use the hand sanitiser on entering the gym and regularly while in the gym
  • Follow the social distancing guidelines at all times while in the gym​
  • Wipe down kit once you have used it with the cleaning wipes provided (cleaning stations are clearly sign posted) and then dispose of your wipes
  • Not bring sweat towels onto the gym floor
  • Not bring bags onto the gym floor
  • Be thoughtful, please do not superset or occupy multiple pieces of equipment at the same time

Yes, you can use the changing rooms however we strongly encourage members to change before and after visiting the gym to avoid using the changing facilities.

  • Showers will be out of use until further notice.
  • Lockers will be available but in limited numbers.
  • We have removed some doors in places to minimise touch points and maximise air flow, changing rooms doors will be left open to allow more air flow (don’t worry, you can’t see in them from outside!).

We have temporarily suspended classes so we can extend the 1st floor space by using the studio room area to place socially distanced equipment for members to use.

  • Do not bring a sweat towel, members can use blue roll and discard.

You will find new sanitising stations conveniently placed around the gym along with more wet wipe dispensers. We need everyone to wash or sanitise hands regularly and clean kit after use.

Staff will be temperature checked and asked if they have any symptoms before every shift.

High contact touch points will be sanitised every hour during opening by staff.

The entire gym will undergo a thorough clean every day after closing by professional cleaners.

Yes, Personal Trainers will be able to provide safe, socially distanced training for their clients once the gyms reopen

  • We will not accept any cash, please ensure you have a way of paying contactless or by card – minimum spend £2.50

RP Fitness is in a large converted warehouse, meaning it’s a big space.

Our ceiling in places is 8.5 metres high, large shutter warehouse doors at either end of the building will be open when possible to ensure fresh air blows throughout the gym.

Fresh air is pumped into and sucked out of our changing rooms and studio room, 24 hours a day.

We have removed some doors in places to minimise touch points and maximise air flow, changing rooms doors will also be left open to allow more air flow (don’t worry, you can’t see in them from outside!).

All our air conditioning units are almost new and have undergone thorough cleaning.

We won’t stop at government guidance, here are other ways we are ensuring the safest environment possible is achieved for our members:

  • All taps in the changing rooms have been replaced with new sensor taps, so you won’t need to touch them to wash your hands
  • We have replaced our fiddly toilet handles and separate locks with simple, large, lift to lock handles
  • Clear safety screen at reception to ensure social distancing measures are met
  • Hand dryers in changing rooms are contactless
  • We have stocked up to the rafters with hand sanitiser and soaps to ensure our dispensers will not run empty
  • Constant fresh air is circulated throughout our changing rooms and studio room, we will also open our large shutters when possible to ensure fresh air circulates throughout the gym
  • Contactless member cards / phone app are used to check-in at the turnstile
  • We will not accept any cash payments for the foreseeable future so please ensure you have a contactless payment method with you or card
