Communicate with all other gym users.

Give other gym users space.

Do not leave any kit unattended.

Be courteous to other gym users.

If you share kit please wipe down the kit before you use it.

Please bin all wipes after you use them do not leave them on the ground or on a peice of kit. Wipe the kit then put away.

Once you are finished with a piece of kit wipe it down and put it back. This does not include the weight plates, please do not wipe these.

We have 2 stations within the gym that have disinfected white roll wipes. Please use these wipes and wipe down your kit with them. This will be the only available products.

It is your responsibility to clean what you use.

If you sweat a lot I would recommend you bring a towel to wipe yourself with and put on the benches when you use them but please do not clean the equipment with this towel, instead use the cleaning products provided.

The BSPT Comminity was built on High 5’s after the class lol, although I have missed these we will instead by offering fist pumps or elbow bashes going forward. If you feel uncomfortable with either just run away from us when we apprach you 🙂

Changes to Gym Layout

The Gym layout will remain the same.

The Gym and the toilets will be cleaned every day. This will be recorded for your information in each area.

Common touch points are cleaned multiple times per day.

We ask that you as a member clean the kit that you use and maintain good personal hygiene at all times, failure to do so will result in your membership being terminated.

We look forward to welcoming you all back to a more ‘NORMAL’ gym environment, and hope that you all abide by the rules set so that we can all enjoy the experience. As a community we all play an important role in keeping our gym safe.

See you all Soon 🙂
