Coronavirus Update

Updated 17th July 2020

The Body Factory will open on Saturday 25th July 

Dear Members,

As you will recall from my previous email at the end of March, your membership was frozen. The Government has allowed us to open from Saturday 25th July. That time is now creeping upon us, and we will be reinstating membership, from the 1st August.

With the opening in mind, I want to assure you that we are still working closely with the Government/health and safety guidelines, and taking full measures in keeping you and our staff safe. I want to take this opportunity to inform you how we at TBF propose to do so. Also to advise you how you can help keep yourselves and others safe while enjoying your time at the club.

As you return to the club, you will notice some changes.


To ease us back in, we are slightly changing the opening hours.

We will open at 9 am Monday to Saturday, Sunday will remain the same, at 10 am. Closing time will also change. We will close slightly earlier at 9pm Monday to Thursday. Friday and Saturday will remain the same. Sunday we will remain open to 4 pm. You can see our opening time on our website.


When you enter the club, you will see arrows pointing you into the direction, to different departments of the club, and out of the club.

In the gym area, you will notice some machines closed to allow for distancing.


To help with distancing measures, we are introducing a booking system for the pool, and Toning Tables.

You will need to call reception to book your slot. Slots are 30 minutes each, and remember to be at the club to allow for changing time. However, if there’s availability at less busy times, you may stay longer.

At present, the Infra-Red Sauna will remain closed, but on opening customers may need to book. I also ask that you bring a towel to sit on while in the sauna.


The showers will NOT be in use to avoid contamination and a build-up of traffic in the changing area. We would ask you not use the changing rooms unless necessary.


You will see more cleaning, antibacterial sprays around the club for your use. Also, there are three new sanitising stations installed around the club. They are,

Reception, toilet area and one in the changing rooms.

Staff will clean machines, lockers, equipment and toilets more frequently as we have installed a system enabling us to leave reception more often.


As a member, you can do ‘your bit’ to avoid the spread of the virus through good personal hygiene.

Frequent hand washing during visits.

Regular washing of gym clothes

Coughing and sneezing into tissues and disposing of in bins provided.

Wipe down gym equipment seat, hand pads and buttons when finished using.

Follow government guidelines if you are travelling on transport.

Myself and the TBF team look forward to seeing you when we open, and your efforts, together we can make TBF a happy, safe place to train.

Kind Regards
