Fitness Canterbury Procedures During Alert Level 1 

Dear Fitness Canterbury Member,

 This is a brief rundown of how we will be operating during Alert Level 1

How Will We Operate at Alert Level 1

We will be spot cleaning all touch point surfaces including door handles, fridge handles and rails twice a day.

 Signing In:

For contact tracing we are asking that all members use their membership card to sign in. If you have lost/misplaced your card please see reception and we will issue you a new one. If you bring in a friend to train that is not a member they must sign the visitor register at reception. The Government QR Code is available on the entrance door.

Using Gym Equipment:

This is where we ask that everyone works together to ensure we can provide you a safe and hygienic gym for you to train in.

There will be additional cleaning stations located around the gym. All equipment will be sanitised by our team throughout the day, but it is also recommended that everyone wipes down each piece of equipment before using it.


Spin and Boxing classes will be running during level 1

If You Are Feeling Unwell, Please Stay Home

Even if you feel you only have a cold, please do not come to the gym. Rest up and get yourself better. This is for your own safety but also the safety of other members and our staff.

It is also a requirement that all Fitness Canterbury Staff and Trainers are to remain home if they feel unwell. We are of course coming into the Cold and Flu session, and because of this there may be times where reception will be closed due to a shortage of staff.

We will do everything we can to provide you with a safe and clean environment to train in. Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

What Fitness Canterbury will do to ensure we are protecting our Members and Staff on top of normal cleaning and maintenance duties.

  • Clean/disinfect all machine upholstery daily
  • Clean/disinfect reception counter and bench tops
  • Clean/disinfect all door handles
  • Provide Hand sanitizers and Sanitizer Wipes throughout the gym – Effective hand hygiene is the best defence against corona virus.

What we expect of our members to ensure they are protecting themselves our staff and other fellow members.

As the corona virus continues to evolve, it is important to remember that effective hand and sneeze/cough hygiene is the best defence against viruses and can help prevent the spread of illness.
Wash your hands regularly with soap and water, before and after eating, and after going to the toilet
Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap is not available
Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or the inside of their elbow.
Dispose of tissues in the bin immediately
If you’re unwell, with any of the symptoms including minor symptoms please stay at home to protect yourself and others

We are happy to put your membership on hold at no charge until such time as you are well. Simply email or call reception on 03 358 9667 to do this.

Please consider we have members of all age groups, and members with compromised immune systems. Please consider that even though symptoms in one person may seem minor – spreading it to other members may have severe consequences for them!

As always, the health and well-being of our members and staff, remains our number one priority.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

Yours in health and Fitness,

Fitness Canterbury
