Our COVID-19 Safety Promise to you

The health and safety of our members is our number 1 priority, that’s why we’ve been in the gym ensuring all Government Guidance (and more) is adhered to to make you feel safe when you visit us. There are a few adaptations to how we must operate but luckily given the style of our gym there aren’t too many and these won’t affect your experience with us.

These are our promises to you:

Our guidance is being constantly reviewed and updated in line with recommendations from the government and our governing body.

What Will Your W Fitness Visit Be Like?

To ensure all of the above precautions are met here is a snapshot of what your visit to W Fitness will be like.

Take a look for yourself on our virtual tour with Leeds TV:

(Please note this video is from July 2020, so there are a few changes for our reopening in April 2021 to our cleaning procedures (you can see our updates to the right), and the number of bookings – we are increasing this to every 6 minutes)

  1. Firstly, you will pre-book in for your gym slot using our Online Booking In System (We already used a booking in system pre-COVID19 as making a booking for your gym session makes you more likely to stick to it!)
  2. When you arrive for your session (please ensure you don’t enter the gym any more than 5 minutes before your session), you must use the Hand Sanitiser provided.
  3. You can then grab a clean cloth, your disinfectant bottle, and your Programme Card and safely make your way to the first workout station which is now next to the entrance. This is so we can adhere to guidance of ensuring a 1-way system is in place. Once on the circuit, it is exactly as you know it! The machines are in the same order, and we are always available to help guide you round and support you on the free stations.
  4. Simply wipe the machines down before using them (we will provide information on the areas that we recommend cleaning on each machine).
  5. Once you have completed the circuit, you will be asked to place your programme card in a separate box, as well as your cloth and bottle so these can be cleaned and sorted as required, and you can safely leave the gym.

FAQs

For the safety of our members, we will not be running live classes when we first reopen. However, all W Fitness Members will get access to our Facebook Group which we have been running during lockdown. Within this group, we will be running all of our classes for the foreseeable future. Our timetable includes classes such as: Zumba, HIIT workouts, Fitness YogaBody Blast, Targeted Workouts, and Stretch Sessions. We also have a library of over 200 workouts already in the Facebook Group ready for you to access anytime.
The government has stated that any ventilation system that recycles air will not be permitted. Therefore, we will not have any fans, air con or ventilation systems in place that could encourage the spread of COVID-19. We will be opening windows where possible to encourage fresh air to circulate the building.

We will personally be completing a deep clean of the equipment at certain points throughout the day. In addition to this, we are providing cloths and disinfectant for each member so you can ensure the machines are cleaned to your satisfaction too.

We are operating on a reduced booking-in system, this ensures we can control how many members are in the gym at any one time. Plus, due to our 1-way system, you will never have to cross paths with another member and can always remain socially distant of 2M+.

Luckily due to the nature of our gym, we are able to make it as safe as possible! Bigger gyms may have more difficulty controlling the flow of their members and the cleaning process, however, as we are a small, personal gym, we are able to make sure all the precautions outlined are met (and more!) as the safety of our members is our number 1 priority.
We are following the advice from the World Health Organisation (WHO) who state: “People should not wear masks when exercising, as masks may reduce the ability to breathe comfortably. Sweat can make the mask become wet more quickly which makes it difficult to breathe and promotes the growth of microorganisms. The important preventive measure during exercise is to maintain physical distance of at least one meter from others.” Therefore, we are not enforcing masks at this time, and we are ensuring every member maintains a social distance of 2m+ at all times.
