The safety of our staff and members has always been and remains our top
priority. We will continue to follow Government and UK Active safety guidelines
to ensure that the safety of our members and staff is paramount, these include:
New Milon Q Circuit
During lockdown we have installed our brand new Milon Q Circuit which we are so
excited for our members to try. Please email email@example.com to be re-inducted on our new circuit.
Milon is possibly the most coronavirus safe form of
exercise that you can participate in within a gym environment. We have adjusted
the numbers on our bookable sessions to ensure that you exercise safely
with ample room between you and other users. The times between changing pieces
of equipment has also been extended to allow for cleaning of the equipment.
Between each booked session the equipment will be sanitised.
NEW Reception Turnstiles
We have also installed brand new turnstiles at reception. Members will now use
their membership cards at the turnstiles to gain access into the club.
Opening Hours: Back to Normal
Monday to Thursday:
06.30 to 22.00
06.30 to 20.30
08.00 to 18.00
*Junior gym/swim sessions are currently unavailable. We hope to reintroduce
junior activities as soon as possible.
Until further notice all gym/swim sessions and classes must be pre-booked
before entering the Club. This must be done by both Full and Pay As Go members.
Pay As You Go members must now pay online before arrival. You can do so by
logging into or creating an account on our website. These time slots can be
easily booked via our website and/or app using your membership login details.
All sessions will have a 15/20 minute staggered arrival time to help us
minimise traffic and queueing within the club.
The session times available are:
Gym Sessions: 60 minutes maximum per day
Milon Sessions: 35 minutes maximum per day (please
contact firstname.lastname@example.org to
Swim Sessions: 45 minutes maximum per day
These are temporary arrangements that we hope to increase as soon as it is
possible to do so. We ask all of our members to please be respectful when
booking so that we can meet the demand of all members.
We ask all members to please arrive to their booked sessions ‘gym or beach’
ready and with as limited belongings as possible. This is to help us reduce
changing room traffic with a current limited capacity of 16 people per changing
room at one time. Swimming sessions as mentioned above will be available as
bookable lane swimming. We ask all members to abide to the usual swimming
guidelines and swim in a lane that is suited to their current speed ability.
These have resumed. Our new term will begin on 19th of April.
To book your child in please email email@example.com. There are special measures in place to ensure that you, your children
and our teams can use the pool confidently and safely. To understand how this
will work we have created a short video for you. Click here to watch this.
What are we doing to keep you safe?
Keeping you safe and healthy is our number one priority. That's why
we've introduced new cleaning procedures and social distancing measures, which
have been guided by the experts at UK Active, Swim England, the UK government
and Public Health England.
To watch a short video on the measures we have taken to keep you safe click here.
Members will be encouraged to sanitise their hands at reception and
additional hand sanitiser units have been positioned at key areas across the
Cleaning and disinfecting
We'll be sanitising gym equipment throughout the day and cleaning the entire
club every night. All staff have had cleaning training and they'll be using a
two-stage cleaning process including a detergent, followed by a disinfectant.
We have also purchased eco-friendly sanitising fogging machines which will pass
through the gym throughout the day.
You'll see new social distancing signs around the gym, including one-way
systems where possible. We're also limiting the number of members in each area,
such as the gym floor, studios, swimming pool and changing rooms. And we've
reduced the amount of equipment and lockers available. Numbers in the Club will
be limited and all activities, including gym and swimming sessions will be by
prior booking only.
All Club visits will be bookable
All gym visits, Milon sessions and swimming will all be bookable. This can be
done online or via our app.
Protecting you and our teams
We've installed plastic shields at our reception desks and we'll be providing
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to our staff if necessary.
What can you do to keep yourself and others Safe?
To keep the Club as safe and clean as possible, we need your help too.
We ask that you follow a few simple rules when you visit the Club.
Before coming to the gym
Stay home if you're unwell
Please don't come to the gym if you feel sick or have COVID-19 symptoms.
Bring your own
Bring a full water bottle as the water fountains aren't in use. If you're doing
yoga or Pilates, bring your own mat if you have one. Only bring a towel if
you're showering and don't bring a sweat towel.
Arrive ready to work out
Please come in your workout gear to avoid using the changing rooms. We advise
against wearing face masks as these can hinder your breathing while exercising,
and gloves aren't recommended as they can't easily be cleaned – please use the
hand sanitiser provided instead.
We won't have as many lockers available as usual, so please think about how
much you're bringing with you.
Pre-book your gym session, Milon slot or swim
In addition to booking exercise classes, you'll also need to book your gym,
Milon or swimming session in advance. You can do this using the River Bourne
Club app or our online booking portal.
Bring your bank card
As we can't accept cash if you want to buy anything.
While you're at the gym
Use hand sanitising stations
You'll find these before you reach reception and throughout the gym. Make sure
you follow proper handwashing if you use the changing rooms.
Do not arrive too early or too late
Try to arrive no more than 5 minutes early from your booked slot and follow the
social distancing rules whilst you are in the Club. When your workout over,
please leave the Club as quickly as possible. Members must only do a maximum of
one exercise session per day and must not move between areas e.g. if you book a
swim you will not be able to do a class or go to the gym.
Follow the social distancing signs
Keep to the one-way system and try to stay at least 2 metres from others as
much as possible.
Clean your equipment and mats
You can do this before and after use with the wipe pods around the gym.
Keep to a one-hour workout maximum
This is so that other members can use the Club. Workouts can be booked online
or via our app. If you have not previously registered for online bookings you
can do so by clicking the "My Account" button at the top of this page
(you cannot register on the app).
Only shower if you're swimming
We're limiting showers and changing rooms to our pool users, so please shower
at home otherwise.
