A Deeside gym will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week once given green light to open
A Deeside gym will open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, once the Welsh Government gives them the green light to allow people back in.
Gyms, leisure and fitness facilities closed just before Christmas under level 4 lockdown restrictions as the second wave of the pandemic saw COVID infection rates rocket in Wales.
The Welsh Government will consider when gyms will be able to re open as part of a review of lockdown measures on 22 April.
Énergie Fitness on Deeside Retail Park in Queensferry, has taken the decision to upgrade its club opening hours when it re-opens.
The locally-owned gym had been operating 24-hours prior to lockdown however this was only partial at 5 days per week.
Glyn Stephens, Franchisee and Manager at Énergie Fitness Deeside said:
“We are super-excited to announce that we are going to become a 24-7 fitness club. We feel the additional opening hours will be extremely beneficial to the wider Flintshire community coming out of lockdown.”
With people understandably still likely to be a little apprehensive of using public spaces such as gyms, Glyn says that going ’24-7′ will give members the “opportunity, flexibility and confidence to workout at any given time of the day that they feel comfortable with.”
“The longer-operating hours should also inevitably help spread people out, help reduce peak-time demand and ultimately help us to continue to achieve exceptional social separation standards at all times.” He said.
Glyn says they will be “100% ready” for when gyms are given the green light to re-open.
The Deeside gym has implemented the following additional measures to ensure it is safe, clean and fit for purpose;
– Invested in brand-new cardio screen separators & hand sanitizing stations
– Introduced member booking system and capacity management system
– Gridded equipment and one-way systems
– Hired dedicated, qualified cleaning staff
– Committed to monthly investment of blue roll and anti-bacterial sprays
– Safe exercise and golden rules signage displayed all over the club
– Mandatory face masks upon arrival, exit, changing area and waiting for a class to begin
Nathalie Stephens, Franchisee and Manager at Énergie Fitness Deeside;
“As part of a national franchise network we have to do everything by the book. Members can take strong comfort knowing that we are following all the necessary steps and strict health and safety guidelines set by the head franchise and UK Active in order to be able to safely re-open our doors again”
“As a franchised-business, Glyn and I are extremely grateful for the unbelievable support we have received since the start of the first lockdown. We cannot put into words how much this has meant to me and my family – we really have the best set of members”.
We hope people can see that Énergie is the club of the future; affordable fitness with personality, service and accessibility, reaching out to people of all ages and becoming the brand that breaks down the barriers of intimidation to everyone”
