what to expect when returning to the centre

We aim to keep our centre as fun and friendly as it has always been whilst complying with all social distancing regulations.

Please take a few minutes to read through this information which outlines the necessary changes we’ve made around our facilities.

 

general changes

There will be clear signage showing the routes you are required to take around the centre and areas that are out of use.  If in any doubt, please keep to the left hand side in corridors at all times.

Changing rooms and showers will be unavailable. Customers are asked to come prepared and to shower and change at home.

Our staff will be on hand as always but please remember to respect the social distancing rule when requesting assistance from our team members

Our gym equipment will be spaced out to allow social distancing at all times.  There may be some areas that are being utilised for different things such as our classroom and sports hall used for stretch and functional areas.

The following areas will be unavailable initially:

  • Locker areas
  • Changing rooms


booking – gym & studio

All fitness sessions at the centre MUST be booked in advance.  You will no longer be able to just walk into the centre for your workout.  You can book your session by telephone 01273 841348 and you can book up to 8 days in advance.  (Bookable via our email address from Wednesday 29th July Hassocksenquiries@freedom-leisure.co.uk )You will be able to book up to 5 sessions per week and may only participate in one activity per visit.

Please ensure you arrive for your allotted session on time.  Late entrants will still be required to leave after their booked gym session time which is one hour and will not be permitted to stay longer.  This will allow us time to clean the area before the next session and to allow as many people as possible to use the facility each day.

The gym will have limited numbers in there to give you confidence and space to enjoy your session.

cleaning

We have implemented and enhanced our cleaning regime throughout the centre.  All areas will be cleaned regularly.  It is essential that members clean down each machine after use – equipment may not be shared unless it has been cleaned down between uses.

Hygiene stations are available in all high-touch areas offering hand sanitiser and medical-grade disinfectant and sanitising wipes.

Personal gym towels are permitted but please use wipes and paper towels provided when cleaning down equipment and dispose of them after each use.

 

classes

Ideally customers should bring their own mats for classes. If using our centre mats please ensure these are fully sanitised after use. There will be an opportunity if you would like to purchase one of the centres mats to keep we will be offering these at a minimum cost.

Our classes will take place in our ventilated and spacious dance studio and we will have a maximum of 12 customers per class. Please use the queing system outside the studio, when you enter please walk through to the front of the studio and use the spot on the floor as your station. If you require a mat in the class please lay the mat horizontally over the spot.

Our Saturday class will take place outdoors and will be bodyweight only, please bring a mat with you. If the weather is good we can offer additional spaces.  If it is raining this will take place in the studio and will be limited to 12.
