Helping you to live your best life

We are open!

Over the past month, we have been working hard to make our centres as safe and welcoming as possible and we are now ready to welcome you back. We are excited to confirm that we are now open!

We have new changes in place, including new timetables, centre opening times and safety measures, to help everyone enjoy their time with us safely!

In addition, we will still be providing you with workouts, cooking sessions, arts and crafts and more through social media, our app and our website to help you to live your best life from home, even now we’re open!

We are really looking forward to seeing you again and helping you to live your best life…safely!

See you soon,
The Active Tameside Team

 

You can now book gym sessions, lane swims and classes online up to 8 days in advance, with the exception of Active iTrain, where you can book classes up to 7 days in advance and you won’t have to book for the gym (however there will be a capacity limit at Active iTrain of 68 people in the gym).

You can view our guides on how to book online and via our app here: Gym – computer|app  //  Lane Swim – computer|app  //  Group Exercise Class – computer|app

Please note that parents are unable to accompany their children into the building unless they have booked on to the same session as them.

What is open initially?

Please note that ALL activities must be PRE-BOOKED. If you do not book in advance, you will not be able to turn up to our centres to use the gym, attend a class or go for a lane swim. The only exception to this is gym access at Active iTrain.

If you do not have a membership with us, you can register as a casual user to book and pay for sessions online in advance. You can find out how to do this here.

_Gyms

Our gyms at our centres are open. We have made changes to the layouts of our gym floors to enable you to use the equipment you love (and have missed!) at a safe distance from others.

_Lane swimming

We have safely distanced our swimming lanes so you can get back in the water without a worry!

_Group exercise classes

We have reduced the capacity of our group exercise classes to ensure there is a safe distance between you and other members. We will also be sanitising any equipment and areas between each class.

Active iTrain gym access

You do not need to book to access the gym at Active iTrain. Instead, capacity is limited to 68 people at any one time. After this limit is reached, you will need to wait outside until another member leaves the gym. You can check how many people are in the gym before you attend, both here and via our app.

Access to group exercise classes is via the Soft Play Zone entrance only and all classes must be booked in advance.

What we’re doing to keep you safe

We are committed to the health, safety and wellbeing of our staff, members and community and we have worked hard to ensure your centre is a safe and enjoyable space. As part of our commitment to keeping you safe, we have invested in state-of-the-art fogging machines for our centres.

It is important that you familiarise yourself with our new safety measures before visiting our centres;

  • Introducing online/app booking for all activities to manage capacity of the gym floors, lane swimming and classes to ensure social distancing.
  • Increasing cleaning regimes by our centre teams.
  • Introducing in-centre signage and one-way systems around our centres to help you move around safely.
  • Providing sanitisation stations throughout our centres for customers to use.
  • Providing comprehensive Health and Safety training for our staff prior to opening, providing PPE where necessary and putting protective screens in place for safety and protection.
