Was anyone maintaining the facilities whilst the gym was temporarily shut?
Yes, whilst our facilities were closed our team were routinely visiting to perform statutory and regulatory inspections and testing, along with general maintenance activities, to ensure the standards were maintained ready for us to open for EVERYBODY.
Will you notify me if you think I may have come into contact with a person who has tested positive for Covid-19 whilst at Bamburgh Fitness?
We are fully complying with all government advice regarding this, supporting the government’s track and trace system.
How will you be managing capacity to ensure that Bamburgh’s spaces don’t become overcrowded at busy times?
We have worked hard to ensure that the layout of our gym, the equipment in use and the placement of our cleaning and hand stations are optimal for the gym layout and maintaining a safe distance.
All our equipment follows government guidelines in ensuring that EVERYBODY is a safe distance apart. When taking free weights, we ask EVERYBODY to be conscientious towards other members and respect the social distancing measures that are being enforced. If this is ever not the case, please speak with a member of the team on site who will be more than happy to assist in any way that they can.
What are you doing to keep the equipment and facilities clean?
We are working hard to ensure that our hygiene standards are kept to an exceptional level. As part of these efforts we have stepped up the frequency of our gym equipment being cleaned and on top of this, ensure that each evening a deep clean is done across the entire facility. We have also put in place cleaning stations throughout our gyms and we ask EVERYBODY to use these to wipe down any equipment after use.
Should you have any concerns over the cleanliness of our equipment or facilities, please speak to a member of staff on site who will happily ensure that any issues are sorted.
