Well, this is something we could never have thought would be one of the challenges of running a small business.

Presently we are still offering all of the services that we would normally offer as part of Stringer’s Gym, however we are in the process of recreating and re-evaluating our class timetable to keep up to date with Government guidelines and to offer as much protection to you whilst you are training with us.

Therefore;

We are now reducing all of our internal classes to a maximum of 6 people at anyone time.

We are reducing most of our classes to 30 minutes, but increasing the frequency of our classes to accommodate you all.

Fans will not be used in these classes but the ventilation system will be active instead. Doors and windows will also be open.

There will be a minimum of 10-15 minutes interval between classes to allow staff to clean and remove all equipment used.

Larger classes, ie Boot Camps will now be run outside (weather permitting). As we do for interval training, you will not “share” weights or equipment with fellow users but will have your own set which will be cleaned for every class.

Boxing style classes will only have participants with their own gloves. Stringer’s will no longer supply gloves for hygienic reasons.

Please refer to our booking system for further updates/changes to our timetable or email us, info@stringersgym.com

The Stringer’s Gym team will be constantly wiping down equipment within the gym with soap and warm water. We ask you to please keep your own personal hygiene as high as usual and to use the wipes and spray before and after the use of equipment. We ask everyone to wash their hands on entry to the gym.

All of the above are guidelines that we are adhering to as far as possible and are by no means an exhaustive answer to this pandemic.

………………………………………………………………………….

We are aware of the reports of social distancing and with careful consideration to each other and our environment we can still train and keep fit while abiding by the recommended guidelines. We continue to have professional medical people still attending our gym and training with us who are confident that we are doing everything necessary to keep you fit and healthy. We do understand and agree that those with underlying health issues or who have family members that may be more vulnerable to this virus should stay away for the time being. For these members we are planning on offering online training support through our website and emailing routines to you.

On a personal note, I am absolutely astounded by the unwavering support that our members are giving us through their comments and by offering to continue paying their memberships, even though they cannot attend for various reasons. I would like to thank every single one of you on behalf of all here at Stringer’s Gym and of the Stringer family for your continued loyalty.

I would also like to offer my sincerest wishes and thoughts to those who are struggling at this very difficult time. Please keep in touch and we will continue to support you in any way we can to keep you fit and healthy and we will look forward to seeing you all soon.

Stay safe, fit and well.

Ian.
