Drakes Gym: Reopening Information

We are excited to welcome you back to Drakes Gym after 5 long months. Your safety is always our highest priority and we are doing our very best to help mitigate the risk of infection. Based on the Government guidelines, to keep you and ourselves safe and healthy, from 25th July we will implement the following changes at Drakes Gym. Read on for the full Drakes Gym reopening information.

Contact Details

Before you enter Drakes Gym you must fill out a form here. We need to keep your contact details for 21 days. It is mandatory to register prior to entering our gym.

Your Health

We commit to the wellbeing of you. So, if you show/have any signs of COVID-19 (temperature, cough and difficulty breathing), you must go home to follow Government regulations.

Bookings and Social Distancing

If you haven’t got one already, we will create a profile for you on our online booking system, Fresha. And your PT will book all your sessions in advance. Knowing exactly who/when/how many people are in the gym helps us limit capacity and avoid getting crowded. Read more on what data is collected and how here.

We have created separate mini stations on the gym floor. To maintain social distancing, you should try to stay in the same station for the duration of the session.
We need to make sure social distancing remains in place for the sofa area upstairs. Only one person is allowed in the waiting area.
Queue management – we placed markings on the floor and outside the entrance.


We continue intensive cleaning procedures. More hours of cleaning are added to maintain cleanliness. Our cleaners come every day to deep clean and disinfect the gym. We will carry out regular cleaning of high-contact touchpoints throughout the premises. Your PT will wipe down the equipment after use.
We’ve put out more hand sanitiser stations. And we’ve placed signs on the walls to direct you where you can wash your hands.
As having a personal training session requires less than 2 metres of distance, wearing a face mask is mandatory. We understand this can be uncomfortable, but the health of our community is our priority.

Changing Rooms

Please arrive in your workout clothes. If this is not possible, you can change in the changing rooms. These are restricted to two people at any one time.
First, all showers are out of use.
Additionally, we will not provide towels. Also, no towels are left on the gym floor.
Next, signposting is provided to maintain social distancing when in the changing rooms.
However, lockers will remain in use, as long as social distancing is maintained.
Finally, disinfectant spray and paper towels are available for you to use if required.

Gym Floor

Please avoid working out face to face. Touchpoints of equipment are cleaned after use, however. This is done by your PT. This is in addition to the increased cleaning schedule, too.

We are continuously monitoring the national guidelines and we will keep you updated on any developments. We are here for you now more than ever. If you have any questions about this Drakes Gym reopening information, please e-mail wayne@drakesgym.com.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Drakes Gym!
