Peake Fitness Guidelines

Peake Fitness is open.

We have extended our existing strict practices of cleanliness and have put social distancing measures in place.

Please read our guidelines document to prepare for your visit.

Please be advised that during this unprecedented period, some services and experiences may be closed or of restricted opening times. For more information please contact the Hotel directly. 

We have also provided guidance for our Membership types and have answered some common questions in the sections below. Please read these prior to your visit.

We have updated our class timetable to reflect changes in classes. We have scheduled 15-minutes cleaning and sanitisation time after each class. To minimise congestion and queuing, please do not enter the Club until your class commences.

If you have any further questions or queries, please call us on 01206 265820.

  • Guidance for Gym Session Members

    Gym Session Member:

    Full Centre Membership – Current Operational Details

    Face Coverings in Public Areas
    It has now been made mandatory for all members and guests to wear a face-covering when in or walking through a public area of the hotel complex. We kindly ask that all members help us adhere to this change in the law when entering and exiting the complex. Our reception team have also been asked to enforce this measure.

     

    Track and Trace
    Due to track and trace measures Membership swipe cards MUST be used to gain access to the leisure club upon each visit.  Our reception team have been asked to enforce this measure to allow us to comply with the requirements. If you lose your card please see Peake Reception. Failure to use your card at the gate may result in refusal of entry.

    Do I have to book to use the gymnasium?
    Yes, all members wishing to use the gym will be required to book their 1-hour gym session. Bookings will initially be done via Peake Reception however we will shortly be moving to a new online Members Portal at which point all bookings will move online.

    Changing Room Access
    As of 1st October, we adjusted our changing room policy to now permit members attending the gym and studio to access the changing facilities if needed. However, we ask that if you do not require the use of a locker or shower please refrain from use where possible to reduce unnecessary congestion within these areas.  Please ensure a face covering is worn where possible when using the changing facilities and please try and keep as much distance as possible.  If you do not use the changing room lockers, please endeavour to bring minimal belongings into the club with you i.e. swipe card, car key and water bottle which will remain in your possession whilst you use the gym.

    How long will I have to workout?
    Your allocated time will be 60 minutes, currently once per day. The fitness staff will ‘check you in and out’ of your gym session. To minimise congestion pre-session, we ask that you only arrive at the gym at the time of your session.

    Will I have my temperature taken upon entry?
    Yes, all attendees will have their temperature taken upon entry. If you have a high temperature you may be refused entry to the leisure club.

    Will I have to sanitise my own equipment before and after use?
    Yes, we ask all users to take responsibility for the equipment they use whilst working out. Our staff will also be on hand providing cleaning and sanitation to high touch points throughout the club.

    Can I train with my training partner if we can both get a slot at the same time?
    Yes, that’s fine, however, we will be asking members to keep talking to a minimum when exercising. The reason being that water droplets from 2 people talking to each other in close proximity has been proven as one way for the virus to be transmitted.

    Will there be a one-way system in the gym?
    Yes, we have implemented a one-way system to ensure members maintain social distance when exercising. Please use the floor markings and follow the one-way system when using the gym.

    Gym Layout/Capacity

    We have tried to preserve the zones of the gym, but have removed some equipment to ensure social distancing is maintained. The Fitness studio will also be used as an overflow to the gym with various pieces of cardio and resistance equipment available to use.

    The capacity will be capped at 12 members per hour.

    Will sweat towels be provided?
    Unfortunately, government guidance prevents us from offering sweat towels to our members at this time. We advise that you bring your own towel to the gym.

    Will the water fountain be available?
    Unfortunately, the water fountain will be out of use, we ask that you bring your own water when attending the gym or purchase a bottle from one of the beverage outlets across the resort or Pippin shop.

    Are there any additional measures you have gone to protect me whilst using the gym?
    Cleaning and sanitation have been increased throughout the club with designated cleaning staff at key points throughout the facility. We are using ozone water to spray over high touch points such as gym upholstery and poolside loungers which kills all bacteria including covid-19 after 60 seconds of contact. Early September we installed air purifying units within the gymnasium, studio and changing rooms. The system uses ultraviolet light to kill all airborne viruses and pathogens including all strains of Coronavirus.

    Can I go for a swim after my workout or after attending a class?

    Yes, however, please note that the swimming pool will operate on a first come first serve basis. If all lanes are occupied then you may have to wait for a lane to become available. We ask that you leave your swim bag in your car and when your workout time is over collect your swim bag and re-enter the club as a ‘Swim session member’.  Please see operational guidance for Swim Session Member.  NB Children Swimming:  From Saturday 3rd October we are trialling children swim sessions for hotel residents only from 7:30 am – 9:00 am via 30-minute pre-booked slots. We’ll be reserving 3 lanes for families to book, 2 lanes will remain open for members to swim.

    Can I sit and have a coffee or smoothie after my workout, swim or class?
    Yes we will be serving drinks only from Peake Bistro. Capacity numbers within the bistro will be monitored by our staff accordingly and at busy times we may ask you to use one of the other food and beverage outlets across the resort. The newly refurbished Sports Bar will be running a delicious daily menu. Members discounts will be honoured at any till point across the resort including the Sports Bar when paying with your members swipe card.

    Fitness Classes

    Do I have to book for all classes?
    Yes due to track and trace all classes must be booked, failure to book will result in you being refused entry to the class.

    How will you be policing this?
    Each class instructor will call a register at the beginning of each class, unfortunately, repeat ‘no show’ offenders will be prevented from booking classes for 1 month and we ask that members are mindful that we are operating with a reduced capacity for each class.

    Can I book online?

    When attending the club for a class do I have access to the changing facilities?
    Wherever possible if you are simply attending a class, we ask that you come dressed in workout clothes and bring minimal belongings into the club with you i.e. swipe card, car key and water bottle which will remain in your possession whilst you use the studio.

    What capacity will the classes be?
    We are reducing the class capacity to 12 spaces per class.  To reduce congestion and queuing outside the studio we ask that you only enter the leisure club at the time of your class.

    Do I have to book to use the pool for my swim session?

    No, our pool will be set up with 5 lanes and we will be running a first come first serve system for all swim sessions.

    How long can I swim for?

    Once your lane has been allocated by the lifeguard you will have 30 minutes swim time. We have also allocated 30 minutes shower time to ensure that time in the club is limited, where possible to 60 minutes per member. The lifeguard will keep track of your time in the pool and will ask you exit the pool after 30 minutes.

    What happens if all lanes are occupied?

    The lifeguard will add your name to a waiting list and inform you of when a lane will be available. We’ll ask you to sit on a lounger or bench and wait for a lane to become available. Due to the limited time, we allocating per swim we predict that you will not be waiting long.

    Will the heat cabins be open?

    Unfortunately, due to government guidance the heat cabins will remain closed until further notice.

    Will the towels service be available?

    Yes, we will continue with the towel service within the changing rooms and ask that you use the 1 towel per visit.

    No, but there will be designated areas for changing and various lockers will be out of use to maintain social distancing. We also ask that you limit conversations with the changing room to a minimum to further decrease the risk of covid-19 being transmitted between 2 members.

    Unfortunately at this time we have suspended our children’s swim session and swim school until further notice.

    Can I book and attend Aqua and Swim Fit classes?

    Research shows that chlorine kills covid-19 so we feel that swimming is generally a safe form of exercise.

We will also be using ozone water to spray over high touchpoints such as gym upholstery and poolside loungers which kills all bacteria including covid-19 after 60 seconds of contact. We’ll also be installing an air-purifying system within our gym, studio and changing rooms which uses UV light to kill all airborne bacteria including Covid-19. We can also monitor the quality of the air in these areas at any time to ensure the air you are breathing is Covid secure at all times.
