As exercise clubs prepare for re-opening on April 12,  many fitness fanatics are feeling cautious about getting back into the gym.

The idea of sweating amongst others in an air conditioned studio may bring on the fear factor for some, but Village Health & Wellness Clubs say that they are leading the way, with cutting-edge safety measures in place to ensure their members get their workouts done safely. 

The gym floor at all 31 Village clubs, including their Wirral base in Bromborough, offers the protection of a spacious environment for adequate social distancing. With more perspex safety screens installed than any other health club, users will be able to hit the treadmill or get their spin on in safety.

Village Health & Wellness Club have invested in powerful cleaning measures, using Electrostatic technology to keep all high-touch areas fully disinfected.  Plus, the team have spent their lockdown time undergoing extensive COVID safety training, covering hygiene, fitness class instruction and personal training.

All members have access to a real-time capacity checker via the Village Gym app, allowing you to see just how busy the club is before heading in for a workout.

National Fitness Manager, Ben Edwards says: "The feedback we've received has been impressive, with many members who had previously felt nervous about coming back to club, now ready to do so with the reassurance that we are taking social distancing seriously."

In Europe so far, no major outbreak has been linked to gyms, pools or other indoor sport venues, which are all subject to heightened hygiene and distancing guidelines.
