Gyms and swimming pools are now open.

In line with Government guidance, we anticipate that from Monday 17 May, fitness classes will start again, and saunas and steam rooms will open.

For more details, see our full roadmap.

Dates are subject to change following Government guidance.


    To allow you time to familiarise yourself with the new arrangements and as a gesture of goodwill, membership fees will stay frozen until 1 June 2021.

    Regardless of membership type, members can come and use our gyms and swimming pools for free until 1 June 2021.

    If you have paid your membership upfront for the full year, you will have the additional time added onto your membership expiry date.

    Get Active discount card holders will also have the expiry dates extended for the time we were closed.
