The seriousness of the Coronavirus situation deserves new levels of stringency. Our response is to instigate a strict plan of initiatives to protect and reassure our members when we reopen our doors.
As members of The IFBA (International Fitness Business Alliance) we have direct support on our response to Coronavirus through UK Active (The national body that lobbies the Government on behalf of the Health and Fitness Industry) to make sure that what we are doing is ahead of government guidelines and ensuring the safety of members and staff.
