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.
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.

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.
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.
