Access and changes
Will any parts of the Fitness Club be out of use during the works?
Yes, the areas above will be closed whilst works take place. We are going to be a little upside down until the works are completed, however our build contractors have worked alongside us for years and understand the need to minimise disruption, noise and mess. Alternative facilities and activities will be provided wherever possible.
Gym floor – we don’t anticipate having to close the whole gym floor for any extended period, however, the works will be completed in 4 phases, requiring areas of the gym floor to be closed for each phase. We will reduce the amount of cardio and resistance kit available in the remaining space. There will be some full day gym floor closures during the phases to allow for the relocation of kit from one area to the next.
Studios – The group cycling studio will be closed throughout the duration of the works (1st February – 1st June), with group cycling classes available at Westway Sports & Fitness Centre during this time.
Studio 1 will be closed for refurbishment for 7 weeks (19th March – 4th May), during which time most of the classes will be moved down to Westway Sports & Fitness Centre.
Changing Rooms – please see schedule above and our information boards in the Club which will provide more information about the changing room refurbishment.
We will relocate members to the Community Changing Room during works in the men’s or women’s changing room, a sauna is available in here.
Disability Access during works
The Accessible Changing room will not be available throughout the works. Access to other parts of the Club will be limited for those with mobility issues and there will be limited Inclusive Fitness Initiative (IFI) equipment available during the refurbishment works. Our regular IFI support sessions and group sessions will be relocated to Westway Sports & Fitness Centre for the duration. If you have any special access needs please speak to a member of the team who will be able to help you to access Westway Sports & Fitness Centre.
Can I use other centres during the works?
Yes, we would encourage all Fitness Club customers to use the brand new gym, studios and changing facilities at Westway Sports & Fitness Centre during the works. This will give you a really good idea of the type of equipment and look and feel of what the new Fitness Club will look like.
- New gym (resistance, weightlifting, cardio and functional training areas)
- New studios
- New equipment (Technogym, Keiser indoor cycles, Wattbikes and new group exercise kit)
- New changing rooms (including flooring, showers, toilets, lockers, vanity areas, sauna and steam)
- Refurbished squash courts
- New air conditioning / ventilation
- New group exercise timetable
- New squash programme
