In-line with Government guidelines, we will be re-opening the gyms on 12th April 2021.
All of the equipment in the gym has been re-arranged to enable safe distancing. To manage a safe capacity at any time members will now have to pre-book their sessions at the gym. 1 hour sessions can be booked via the website or Horizon app and staff will conduct cleaning and sanitising of gym equipment in between sessions.
Please note there is no restriction to the number of gym sessions you may book and there is nothing to stop you booking consecutive sessions. Just be aware you will need to take a fresh air breather in between sessions whilst we conduct a quick clean.
In addition Gym members should please familiarise themselves with the following new protocols:
- Please be aware that upon entering Horizon Leisure Centres the wearing of face masks is mandatory until you reach the activity you have come for. You do not have to wear a face mask whilst you are exercising. consuming food/drink or if you have an age, health or disability reason for not wearing a face covering.
