Fit Together Main

Here at 3-1-5 friendliness and cleanliness are the foundations of what we offer, alongside of course our world-class facilities and programming. During lock-down our members overwhelmingly voted that the areas that would make them most comfortable to return to the Club would be the friendliness of our team and how clean we keep our facilities.

Our promise to you

  • We will be following advice from all relevant bodies (UK Active, Swim England, England Squash and The PHE) to ensure that we are not only complying with guidance, but fulfilling our obligation to our loyal members to offer you a safe and friendly place to enjoy working out.
  • Our team will follow strict hygiene rules with regards to washing their hands, handling money and other potential contaminates.
  • Employees with symptoms or in close cointact with someone with a confirmed case will be instructed to follow the latest Government guidelines on self-isolation and testing. All employees will receive a heat scan on entry to the club, those found to have a temperature will be unable to work.
  • We have stepped up cleaning around the Club and introduced additional sanitiser products, hygiene procedures and staffing to ensure the Club is kept clean. Also to ensure the correct use of equipment and physical distancing is being followed.

To ensure this and, to comply with Government guidance we have made the following changes that you need to be aware of.

Entering the Club

  • To comply with distancing regulations, we may enforce limits to the number of people in the club and areas of the club at any one time, members wishing to use an area of the club that is deemed at capacity will be asked to wait until there is enough space to enter.
  • All members, staff and contractors will have their temperature automatically screened upon entry*
  • To ensure of a contactless entry we ask that all members use their mobile app or membership cards to access the building.
  • We ask you to sanitise your hands prior to entering the club, and bring as few belongings as possible, these must be stored in a locker not taken around the gym floor / left in a studio.
  • To reduce the time spent in the changing rooms we ask that you arrive “swim / gym ready” and shower at home.
  • During longer periods of downtime in the club additional cleaning will take place in higher use areas i.e. on the gym floor, poolside, and studios

Moving around the club

  • Face masks can be worn in indoor public areas (not whilst exercising)
  • PHE and Gov guidance on posters and digital signage will provide you with helpful reminders and guidance.
  • When using stairways, we ask you to stay left, ideally staying 5 steps apart and look left to shield your face from any on-coming users.
  • Everyone should follow the minimum physical distancing rules whilst avoiding any physical contact.
  • Wherever there is a one way system in place, we ask that you follow this.

Working Out

  • All equipment is to be wiped down before and after use.
  • Where equipment has been placed temporarily out of use to ensure distancing can be achieved we ask you not to use this.
  • To reduce the number of touchpoints, please bring your own drinking bottles ideally pre-filled.
  • We ask that the mouthpiece is not used on the fountains.

Class Timetable

  • Classes have been designed to reduce contact with others e.g. partner work. You may find one of your favourite classes has been removed or the format has changed, please be assured once it is safe to do so they will return.
  • The majority of class sizes have been reduced by at least 20% in hand with this we have increased the number of classes we offer.
  • There are additional times set aside between classes taking place in the same studio  / outside to allow for additional cleaning and prevent queuing outside studios
  • To confirm your place in classes and to ensure as little contact as possible we ask you to book in advance via your FitSense app or by using our desktop booking system.
  • Classes in the club / outside are staggered in start times to reduce the number of clients entering / leaving the club at any one time.
  • Timetabling of classes has been adjusted to spread classes across the day and reduce “peak time” rushes.
  • We have introduced an Outdoor timetable to allow more choice of classes, and increased capacity.
