Breaking News! FIT26’s Covid-19 solution

We all held our breath last weekend wondering what Boris Johnson's announcement on Monday night would mean for us all. 

As we all know now, West Yorkshire was placed into tier two of the government's new three-tier system. Thankfully, it meant our gym, FIT26 could remain open allowing our incredible members, to all stay healthy, happy, and able to continue to exercise with us.

Enjoying the best whilst preparing for the worst!

In the unfortunate event our region is moved up to the government's 'tier three' and placed on 'very high alert' we've taken the proactive decision to work towards putting in place a COME RAIN or SHINE FIT26, the UK's first fully functioning outdoor gym!

During lockdown we utilised the downtime to our benefit by investing in excess of half a million into the gym to create a world-class environment that's certified as Covid-19 safe by creating strategically designed and colour coded indoor training zones.

Part of that investment and development crucially included our brand-new outdoor training zones, providing space for classes (Spin, Yoga, Pilates, Zuu and HiiT), Queenax zone, and running track. This was phase one in our outdoor development.

Following the success and demand of our initial crop of outdoor training classes, we're now ready for phase two. With the sun setting on 2020 the need for our 'CLUB26 Terrace' becomes minimal and the space can now be utilised for further exercise zones. 

The addition of the CLUB26 terrace space to that of the outdoor training areas already in use brings it to a similar size of our indoor facilities, so if indoor training is locked down again, outdoor training (which has been proven to be the safest of all Covid-19 exercise) can continue. So, there's no fear of paying for a membership you can't use.

We have already taken our first steps towards this goal and instructed engineers to create solutions for protective cover from the rain. And our brilliant fitness team are currently designing the layout for all of our state-of-the-art equipment to find new positions outside. 

Moving forward there will be a minimum of 3 classes per day increasing to 5 if tier three is imposed on our district.

So, everything you've always enjoyed plus the addition of a range of new classes and a brand-new training experience will mean you can continue to stay strong both physically and mentally at a time when we all need it most.

Further breaking GREAT news for members!

Following members request and reviewing our current Covid-19 safe approach alongside government guidelines we are happy to announce we are able to INCREASE our capacity per training zone from 4 people to 6 people. That’s an increase in excess of a massive 33%. Thank you to all of our members for their feedback helping us to make HUB26 a truly inclusive experience.

While we have your attention here’s an update!

To continue our support and keep all of our members and staff safe the FIT26 management team have decided to step up our Covid-19 response, be proactive, and reinforce our approach on the following areas: 

FIT26 is operating in a Covid secure way and as such our members can continue to train safely on the gym floor and in our classes. By booking your place via the FitSense App in the ZONES & CLASSES enabling socially distanced training.

  • Our 45-minute sessions allow 15 minutes between slots to clean & sanitise ALL equipment & touch points.
  • Deep cleaning of the HUB happens daily with our in-house residents, Bright Facilities Management, they also deliver a weekly deep clean of the entire facility using their storm atomiser delivery system, further sanitising all surfaces. 
  • We'd like to once again thank our members and continue to encourage everyone entering HUB26 & FIT26 to CONTINUE TO WEAR A MASK ON ENTRY and sanitise their hands on any of the many sanitising stations strategically placed throughout the building.
  • If you've visited us recently, you will have noticed that your temperature has been taken upon entry at reception and will continue to be taken. We have been advised to enforce anyone displaying a temperature on or above 37.8 degrees will not be able to access HUB26 or the gym.
  • You'll be happy to know we've taken a double approach to 'track and trace'. As you check-in using your FitSense App your details are registered and can be used to inform you and others if there is a transmission. We also have on display in the gym's reception, the QR code for 'track and trace', so we ask please remember to scan it.
  • As always, we welcome you into the member's only lounge, CLUB26 before or after your session. Again, in the interests of working together as a community can you please scan the CLUB26 QR code and wait to be seated upon entering the Lounge. Our staff, who will be wearing masks, will make sure that all guests socially distance. You can then relax as we will take your order and serve you directly at your table.
