On 25th July 2020, indoor gyms, pools and leisure centres can reopen to the public.
This will allow millions of people to get back into sport and fitness activities.
However... we must take caution and measures to ensure all gym-goers are well protected when using these sporting facilities.
Below, we'll go into more detail about how gyms can re-open with safe social distancing measures put in place.
Hand sanitising stations for everyone
As we all know, sanitising your hands has become the norm when going into shops.
This trend is likely to stay with us for the foreseeable future.
It's important to provide instant access to hand sanitiser for customers and staff throughout your sporting facility.
Whether that's at the entrance, exit and within different stations of your gym, it is essential especially for the users of the gym equipment to sanitise their hands after every use.
Our range of hand sanitising stations offer plenty of applications for different environments, including: wall mounted, desk, freestanding or fully automatic options.
Social distancing between equipment
Gym machinery and equipment will need to be cleaned after every use.
Furthermore, the UK Government has stated in their latest guidance for gyms to reopen:
"Spacing out equipment or taking some out of service to maintain social distancing" will be another measure gyms have to carry out.
Social distancing screens make an excellent choice to create physical boundaries between machines and equipment. They also allow customers facing roles in any environment operate safely, such as the reception desk within the gym.
Display important information securely
Before anyone walks into your premises, you may want to consider displaying some important information, rules or guidance for your gym.
This can be done in a variety of ways, using:
- Window stickers
- Floor standing snap frames
- Pavement signs
