Sportshall and Fitness Centre Temporary Closure - Monday 14 December 2pm - Thursday 17 December 2pm

We are replacing the flooring in the Fitness Centre, which means we need to move all of the equipment out, and into the sportshall. During this time, the sportshall and the fitness centre, including the weights equipment within it, will be out of bounds. We have alternative cardio upstairs cardio mezzanine, and the circuit and boxing rooms will be open with TRX, strength bags and floor space for bodyweight and functional training. Group Fitness classes will run as usual from the gymnasium and spin studios.
The moving starts on Monday 14th December at 2pm. We expect to have it all back up and running by Thursday 17th December at 2pm.

Gymnasium Painting

The Gymnasium is currently being prepped for painting. The primer can be a bit whiffy, so if you're very sensitive to such smells, then please avoid the gymnasium and mezzanine (ab/stretching) areas. Alternative ab/stretch areas are in the squash wing, in the circuit room (far end), and the boxing room. If you feel faint or unwell, please head to reception so we may assist you. Thanks.
Please also take care around the painters, and follow their instructions on where you may play/exercise in the space.
