Urban Members Safety & New Rules | Urban Health & Fitness

SAFETY MEASURES AT URBAN HEALTH & FITNESS GYMS 

To ensure safety is our priority, we have made some changes to how we run our facilities. It is vital that all members adhere to the changes implemented to reduce the risk of infection.  We have Introduced the following:

REDUCING THE RISK 

  • Workout zones in our studios to reduce unnecessary movement and maintain social distancing. 
  • Limited our bookings of people able to attend exercise classes. 
  • Introduced gaps between classes to reduce congestion and help staff clean studios
  • Limited the number of people who can attend at any one time in the gyms to ensure we adhere to social distancing rules. 
  • Asking staff and members to respect social distancing at all times. 
  • Introduced plastic screens to our reception desks. 
  • Located hand sanitisers at the front of the clubs to use on entry. 
  • Using signage and floor markings to help guide and improve awareness. 
  • Altered entry and exit points where necessary to help the flow of people. 

CLEANING 

  • We have introduced an enhanced cleaning schedule for our cleaners and trainers to ensure that all areas of the facilities are cleaned frequently throughout the day. 
  • Touch points such as phones, keyboards are cleaned after every staff member has used them. 
  • We have introduced hand sanitising stations at the front of our facilities for all members to use on entry and throughout their workouts. 
  • We have introduced gaps between our classes to ensure staff clean down the studios after use. 
  • We are requesting members bring their own mats, filled water bottles and towels.  

TEAM MEMBER SAFETY

  • The team will be washing their hands before their shift, after completing cleaning tasks and frequently throughout shifts.
  • Personal protective equipment (PPE) will be provided for to team members should they feel the need to wear them.
  • Our staff and external trainers will also be adhering to the social distancing rules. 
  • All our staff have had training about our new polices and procedures.  They will also be staying alert to situations that may arise whilst on shift.  

PHYSIO CLINIC & PERSONAL TRAINING 

PHYSIOTHERAPY 

  • Please arrive on time as clients sessions will be staggered to ensure that people are not booked in straight after another client. This will allow us time to clean down the equipment and plinths.
  • For all bookings we will screen clients via telephone consultation to ensure they are not at high risk.
  • Virtual consultations are available should any clients wish. 
  • Please follow measures in place set out in the facilities.  We are following guidelines from the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) and all therapists will continue to wear a face mask.
  • Please cancel and inform us if you develop or suspect you are developing symptoms related to Covid.

  • Sessions can be booked with your trainer or at reception. 
  • You can request a time if available to conduct your session outdoors, 1:1 in a studio outside of class times or virtually.
  • We request that sessions will adhere to strict cleaning and social distancing rules.

A HEALTHY FUTURE
