It is everyone’s responsibility to stay safe by using the facilities as guided and interact with each other sensibly. We must all contribute to the “new normal” and ask all members and customers to adhere to the following:

  • If you experience any symptoms of COVID-19, you must not attend the Academy of Sport and Wellbeing. Please follow the NHS Scotland COVID 19 Guidance.
  • To facilitate the Scottish Government “Test and Protect” system, we will record visitor, customer and member “name, contact number, date and time”. Please ask for our privacy notice for further information.
  • Have a look at our UK Active Approved Safety Plan that we have in place to protect you and us.

The safety of staff and users is the primary objective of gym operators across the UK. This will be carried out through a combined and consistent range of measures in line with Government regulations and our own strategy to protect our staff and users.
