Covid-Secure Guidelines


The safety of our members, visitors and staff is of paramount importance and we have, therefore, amended our operating procedures in order to provide a safe and Covid-secure environment for you. We will continually review these procedures in line with government and industry guidelines.

Opening Times

– the gym will be open for the following hours with bookable slots available between these hours:

  • Monday – Thursday 07.00-19.00
  • Friday – Sunday 07.00-17.30


– prior to us re-opening on 27th July, we will be undertaking an intense cleaning regime across all areas of the gym.

– this intensified cleaning programme will continue on a day-to-day basis alongside our team regularly sanitising equipment and touch points throughout the day.

– we have structured the bookable slots to include a 30-minute gap between each session to allow time for cleaning of equipment.

– there will also be an hour-long gap in the middle of the day so that we can do extra cleaning of the fitness zones and equipment.

– all visitors must clean equipment before and after use.

Before you arrive

– all visitors must have reserved their place in a class or have booked one of the hour-long gym slots.

– under current guidelines, visitors will be unable to just turn up to workout without a prior booking.

– guidance on booking for either a class or individual workout can be seen below

Booking a class/gym session

– you can book on to a class/gym session by emailing

FOR MEMBERS: you can continue to book on to a class/gym session in the same way through the member’s section of the website.

– following fantastic feedback and whilst it continues to remain safer to be in groups outside, we will continue to offer our fitness classes in the Walled Garden.

– we are delighted to be able to increase the capacity of our classes.

– we will continue to review the classes on offer and will look to increase the number of classes on the weekly timetable in mid-August.

– please bring your own equipment to classes where possible.

Individual Gym Workouts

– we are looking forward to being able to welcome our members and visitors back into the gym to make use of our state-of-the-art equipment and we have made some changes to create an even safer environment for you.

– in order to workout in the gym, you will need to have booked on to one of the hour-long slots which are available throughout the day.

– these can be booked in the same way as a class (as detailed above) but instead of selecting the class you wish to book, you select the fitness zone you would like to workout in.

– the capacity for each hourly slot will be:

  • Main Gym – 4 people
  • Courtyard Studio – 2 people

Main Gym Fitness Zone

– in the gym, we have moved equipment around to create more space.

– you will see that we have moved all of the bikes out of the spin studio and created a stretch area for you to use.

– access to and from the gym zone will be via the main entrance and stairs ONLY.

– in line with social distancing requirements, we have clearly marked out exercise boxes on the floor for you to workout in – please make sure you do not enter a marked box if someone is already there.

– there will be a capacity of 4 members in the gym at any one time.

Courtyard Studio

– we have moved some extra equipment into this studio so you can book a session in here and make use of the different pieces of equipment to aid your workout.

– when entering and exiting the Courtyard Studio, please do so ONLY through the external spiral staircase in the Courtyard.

– there will be a capacity of 2 members in the studio at any one time.

When you arrive

– please arrive 15 minutes before your class/gym session to give you time to check-in.

– make your way to the Pro Shop where you can check-in and pay for your class/gym session.

– there is a check-in area designated just inside the entrance to the Pro Shop, which is restricted to one person at a time.

– there is a waiting area clearly marked outside the shop.

– make your way to your class/workout zone using the designated entrance as detailed above.

Social Distancing

– please arrive in your workout clothes to minimise use of the changing rooms as much as possible.

– we kindly request that where possible visitors shower at home after their workouts.

– lockers will be available to use if required but we kindly request that all visitors sanitise these before and after use.

– please remain at least 1 metre away from other people at all times and respect social distancing requirements.

– you may wish to wear a mask and gloves when in and around the gym areas but these are not mandatory.

– all doors will be held open during our hours of operation in order to minimise the touching of door handles and to aid with the flow of fresh air through the building.

– hand sanitiser is available for you to use in each area of the gym.

Use of equipment

– all equipment must be wiped down before and after you use it.

– there are sanitising wipes as well as sanitising spray and paper towel for you to use.

– please do not touch any equipment that you are not going to use.

– please do not use any equipment that has been taped off / marked out of order.

Air Conditioning

– initially, whilst we need to keep all doors open to minimise contact, we will be keeping the external doors and windows open to circulate fresh air into the gym areas.

– however, if this does not keep the workout zones cool enough, we will look to turn on the air conditioning.

– the air conditioning system we have installed is a very advanced system that not only controls the temperature of the air but also provides a constant supply of fresh air drawn in from outside through the ventilation system.

After your class/gym session

– please make sure you have thoroughly cleaned any equipment you have used and dispose of any wipes/paper towels in the bins provided.

– we have installed a cover over our Courtyard where you can relax after your workout and enjoy a coffee or refreshing drink outside in the fresh air.

– our food offering will be available from the Halfway Hut.

– we will be looking to extend our offering and re-open the Coach House in some capacity in due course.

These measures will be regularly reviewed and updated in line with changing guidelines relating to social distancing requirements.

We kindly ask that all members follow these guidelines when at FOCUS.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
