When will gyms re-open?

The Scottish Government have given a date for re-opening as the 31st August. Initial opening will be a restricted hour’s basis. We then intend to increase opening hours from the 12th October.

Due to circumstances outwith our control we are very sorry to advise that the reopening of our gym and fitness classes at Mid Argyll Sports Centre has been postponed until Monday 7th September. We will provide further updates over the coming days and a revised programme will be published in the coming days.

When gyms open will non-members be able to use the facilities?
We will initially be operating on a member’s only service. This is due to reduced capacity (there will be less people permitted in the gym at any given time in line with social distancing measures).
When gyms re-open do I need to book a time slot?
Yes. Initially we will be opening on a restricted hour’s basis, and it will be necessary to book a place before visiting the gym. Our members will receive information on opening times and how to book a place via email. This information will also be shared on our website and social media platforms.
When will fitness classes resume?

Fitness Classes will start from 31st August. A limited number of fitness classes will initially restart, with increased availability from the 12th October. Children’s fitness classes are planned to resume on the 19th October.

Are there any new surprises in store for our members when service resumes?
Yes! In the coming weeks we will also be sharing with you some further information on the launch of our exciting new virtual fitness class programme that will be included as part of your membership.
When will swimming pools re-open?

Swimming pools will open from 31st August. Initial opening will be a restricted hour’s basis and with lane swimming only.

When will swimming lessons resume?
We are planning to resume swimming lessons from the 19th October.
What extra cleaning measures will you be taking to ensure the facilities are safe on re-opening?
In response to covid-19 measures are being implemented to ensure a successful re-opening and a safe environment for our customers and staff. There will be new processes including enhanced cleansing, revised facility layouts and revised access arrangements. To allow customers a confident and informed return to our facilities we will be sharing videos of our new building layouts. We will provide you with a user guide to highlight the new protocols that will be in place, how to plan and book your gym/fitness/swimming sessions and what to expect when you are in our leisure facilities.
How do I freeze my membership or direct debit?

As a charity, we are appealing to our members to stick with us. Your support, more than ever, is crucial. As you are aware your monthly direct debit for your membership remains frozen. If we do get the green light to open on 31st August your direct debit won’t be unfrozen until the 2nd  October and we will confirm this in future communications.
