Pre-bookable gym sessions
Welcome back to the gym!
Are you as excited to get back into the Gym as we are?
We plan to reopen the Craven Leisure gym from Saturday July 25th.
You will be able to book sessions online from Wednesday July 22nd.
Before you head to the gym we need to make you aware that there will be some changes to how these sessions operate and also how we will ask you to use the facility.
These measures will help us to ensure the safety and health and well being of all our staff and facility users.
We initially plan to leave all memberships frozen for the time being and operate on a pay as you go basis. When distancing measures are sufficiently reduced we will re-evaluate our position.

Book your Gym workout.
When gym sessions are available, you will need to book them online.
Gym sessions will be pre-bookable up to 3 days in advance and be limited to 4 sessions per rolling 7 days (this has been increased from 3 in our first week of opening) This will be reviewed regularly to give customers a fair chance of booking a workout in the gym.
In this period we will need to limit the number of users in the facility at any one time and also the amount of users and staff in the gym.
We have created the ability for you to pre-book and pay for a time slot in one of our Gym sessions throughout the day. Just select 'Fitness suite' then pick your time slot.
All Gym workout sessions will be a maximum of 45 mins in duration which will allow us time to clear the gym and clean before the next session begins.
Booking for gym sessions will be available online from 6.15am on Wednesday July 22nd.
If you do not already have a membership with us then sign up for a casual users' membership which will give you the ability to book and pre-pay online with us once you have been into the centre and signed our disclaimer form at main reception. Inductions are not available during this time curently. We are not accepting new memberships at this time.
