Update - Due to interruptions from the recent five-day shutdown period and other operational priorities, the review of usage throughout the extended operational hours was delayed. We are extending the trial of earlier gym opening times until Sunday 14 March 2021. 

When we reintroduced Gym and Group Fitness services following COVID closures we implemented staggered session times across our services and requirement for bookings to these sessions. This was implemented to assist with the flow of people through the Centre and in accordance with our COVID-Safe plan.

The first gym session Monday to Friday commenced at 5.45am, 15 minutes earlier than the standard business opening time of 6.00am. Following the high booking numbers for the 5.45am session times we would like to further investigate the demand for earlier opening now that session bookings are no longer required.

The trial of earlier gym opening times during the week will continue until Sunday 14 March, 2021. The extension of operating hours will only apply to Level 1 Gym and Level 1 change room access. There will be no access to ground floor change rooms or aquatic services prior to 6.00am Monday – Friday during the trial period.

This is a good reminder for all members to scan your membership access device each visit to ensure that your visits are recorded.
