The Sport Ireland Campus Fitness team is delighted to announce the reopening of our gym and pool for members from Monday, June 7th 2021.
We have been busy over the last few months planning for the reopening and we look forward to welcoming you back to a safe fitness environment. Safety is our number one priority and we have implemented new systems and protocols to ensure your health and wellbeing and that of our staff.
Check out this video to learn about our new protocols and the measures that have been taken to ensure that you can train in confidence and comfort.
NEW SAFETY MEASURES
a. Temperature check – everyone that enters our buildings will be temperature checked.
b. Perspex protection - we’ve installed Perspex dividers in key locations to protect our customers and staff
c. Hand sanitisation stations – you will of course find hand sanitiser units throughout our facilities
d. Anti- bacterial spray stations – customers are asked to wipe down equipment with anti bacterial spray and paper towels after they use the gym equipment.
e. Information signage – there is signage and information screens throughout our facilities to remind and inform customers to take all reasonable precautions during this time.
f. One way systems have been set up in some facilities which are highlighted by floor graphic vinyls and will be explained to you on arrival.
g. Our new online bookings system will ensure that contact tracing can be implemented if necessary.
h. Social distancing has been implemented by applying reduced capacity to our gym / class and pool spaces, giving you more space and comfort to train.
i. New cleaning regimes have commenced to ensure that your exercise space is sanitised. Exercise areas and frequently touched surfaces are sanitised regularly, with 30 minute breaks between each training session for cleaning.
j. Covid Officers have been identified for each building and will ensure that all of our new procedures and protocols are implemented. If you wish to speak to anyone at any stage please email email@example.com
BOOKING YOUR EXERCISE SESSION
We are thrilled to have two spacious facilities for you to work out in a gym. You can book a training session in the NAC gym (usual location), or our new gym space in the Sport Ireland National Indoor Arena, in the Athletics Training Centre.
Gym sessions are available for 90 minutes, with 30 minute gaps to allow for cleaning and sanitising.
Pool sessions are available for 60 minutes with 30 minute gaps to allow for cleaning. The Pool will be in 50m format until July 19th.
